A Potential Fountain of Youth

Colostrum is unique because it is the only substance that offers the anti-aging hormones in perfect combination the way nature intended (rather than isolating them). Colostrum works naturally to both replace the body's own growth factors and stimulate the endocrine system to keep producing these vital and revitalizing hormones. There is solid evidence that the growth factors and immune-boosting agents act synergistically in colostrum to form a potent anti-aging substance. With the new anti-aging emphasis in health care, colostrum is one of the most exciting reasons to believe in the potential of "Fountain of Youth."

Colostrum and Gastrointestinal Health

By John I. Buhmeyer, MS

The newborn gut is unique in that it has not completed maturation at the time of birth and needs the growth factors and other components of colostrum to complete its development. The incomplete development of the gut is of benefit to the newborn as it allows large proteins, such as immunoglobulins, to easily enter the body.

However, this is not a condition that is good for adults or older children. Unfortunately, most people have a leaky gut to some degree due to the negative effects of drinking coffee, alcohol or soft drinks, smoking and other causes. Leaky gut syndrome, as it is called, allows pathogens of all varieties easy access into the body. It is estimated that the majority of all human illness has its source in the gut.

Colostrum, just as it does in the newborn, helps heal this leaky gut and restore the gastrointestinal tract to optimal functioning while shutting out pathogens. It also helps heal and restore injuries to the gastrointestinal lining. Colostrum inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria, such as Helicobacter pylori, the principal cause of gastric and duodenal ulcers, and promotes the growth of healthy gut flora. Those who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for arthritis and other painful conditions also suffer damage to the lining of the GI tract, and colostrum has been shown to heal this damage as well.

Colostrum has been called a "biologic soup" due to the vast number of ingredients that have been added by nature to provide the newborn with just the right balance of nutrients, growth factors, immunoglobulins and other substances that it needs to survive and grow. Part of the development of the newborn intestinal tract that needs to occur is to reduce the permeability of the intestinal lining. Human beings above the age of infancy also experience increased permeability of the intestinal lining from the effects of inflammation and decreased mucous production due to a number of causes, including drinking coffee, alcohol or soft drinks, smoking, improper diet, and so forth. This leads to leaky gut syndrome, a condition in which substances, such as pathogenic microbes and toxins, that are normally prevented from entering the body through the intestinal lining can now enter, often leading to illness. Food allergies may be developed as larger particles of food can enter the bloodstream, which the body then detects as foreign.

The inflammation that is present interferes with nutrient absorption. Nutrient deficiencies can occur, and chemical sensitivities can develop due to the disruption of the detox pathways that line the gut. Systemic symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, memory loss, poor concentration, or irritability develop. Antibodies made in the gut can travel through the gut into the bloodstream where antibodies are made against them. This may be one of the causes of autoimmune diseases.

Over time this condition can lead to a more serious condition, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This condition often develops when antibiotics are given. Antibiotics wipe out the normal gut flora that help protect the gut from fungal and amebic infections, help the body break down complex foods, and synthesize vitamins like B12 and biotin. With the normal flora gone, the gut becomes inflamed and leaky gut develops. Candida overgrowth often occurs leading to candidiasis. Other consequences of IBS include chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disease, even cancer.

The use of NSAIDs over a prolonged period of time has a similar effect. NSAIDs produce damage to the gut lining every time they are used, and over time, they prevent the lining from repairing itself, so the damage gets worse.

There are no effective medical treatments that are successful in treating IBS or leaky gut. They may alleviate the symptoms somewhat, but a cure is never achieved. Natural remedies have proven much more effective in helping the gut heal itself, and preeminent among these is colostrum.

Colostrum, the first milk a newborn infant receives, is packed with everything needed to heal leaky gut. It is the only natural remedy that has been proven to eradicate intestinal pathogens such as rotavirus and help control the chronic infections of IBS while promoting the growth healthy intestinal flora. Growth factors in colostrum help heal the damage to the intestinal lining. It also contains anti-inflammatory to cool the fires of inflammation that keep the whole process going. And it is nutrient rich to help recover from nutrient deficiencies more quickly.

Scientific studies have proven that colostrum helps heal the increased permeability of leaky gut and is anti-inflammatory. Other studies have confirmed that colostrum heals damaged intestinal lining. It also is bactericidal to H. pylori, the leading cause of ulcers in the gastrointestinal tract. And finally, colostrum has been clinically shown to heal the damage caused by NSAIDs in the intestinal tract.
factor to consider

#5275 Feb 25, 2013
One very important factor to consider when choosing a colostrum to use is the presence or absence of an enteric coating on the colostrum. While the proteins in colostrum are designed to withstand digestive enzymes and acids, there is a certain degree of loss as the colostrum passes through the stomach and into the intestinal tract. With enteric coating, more of the colostrum ingredients get to where they're needed. Make sure that your colostrum has an enteric coating.

The Bad Effects Of Computer Radiation…

We’ll examine the EMF radiation from different types of desktop and laptop computers, what that means for your health, and the SafeSpace products that can protect you while you work, surf and socialize online.
What is Computer Radiation & Where Does it Come From?

CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) screen radiation - If your desktop monitor (or TV) is a few years old and has a deep cabinet, chances are it’s a CRT. CRTs are by far the most dangerous type of screen.

Few desktop computers are made with CRT screens anymore (though some video gamers still prefer them).
The images produced by CRT screens involve a number of processes, including the front of the tube being scanned downward in a pattern of lines, electron beams “sweeping” an image across the screen by modulating their intensity, a coil generating magnetic field and more.

The Health Dangers of CRTs

Small amounts of radiation (x-ray frequencies and others) are emitted as the electrons sweep the screen.
At close range, this radiation (literally pulsating fields of energy) puts biological stress on humans, animals and plants.
CRTs also operate at an extremely high voltage, which continues on long after the computer has been turned off.

LCD ( Liquid Crystal Display) Screens Radiation - these screens are flatter, often appearing as panels. LCD screens are safer than CRTs.

Display is composed of color or monochrome pixels that are filled with liquid crystals.
Liquid crystals are lit by a backlight or reflector.
LCD screens utilize very small amounts of electric power.

Colostrum benefits : Why does colostrum cure gastrointestinal infections?

Recent study showed that Bovine Colostrum can help fight Helicobacter Pylori infections. Helicobacter is a kind of bacteria that is often responsible for Gastritis, Gastric ulcer, and Stomach Cancer. The Colostrum is produced by cows that were previously vaccinated with certain kind of pathogens.

These cows will then produce antibodies in their blood and then transferred them to milk they produced. But the highest concentration of antibodies is transferred in Colostrum.

During test, it showed that this immune colostrum can prevent Helicobacter infection in mice. However it can't cure an existing infection by Helicobacter. But when combined with certain antibiotic it can reduce Helicobacter population and inflammation in Gastrointernal more significant than antibiotic alone.

The research also showed that immune milk combined with lactobacilli that's extracted from fermented cabbage can effectively help in preventing Streptococcus and Helicobacter Pylori. Streptococcus is the most responsible bacteria in causing dental caries from adhering to tooth surface.

There are over 90 known components in colostrum. The primary components, divided into two classes, are immune factors and growth factors. Colostrum also contains a precise balance of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. All of these factors work together in perfect synergy to restore and maintain health.

Immune Factors in colostrum have been shown to help the body fight off harmful invaders such as viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus. Each factor plays a specific role in our body's defense against these attackers. In addition, colostrum contains over 20 antibodies to specific pathogens including E coli, salmonella, rotavirus, candida, streptococcus, staphylococcus, H pylori, and cryptosporidia.

In addition to immunoglobulins, medical studies show that PRP in colostrum also supports an under active immune system. PRP also helps balance an overactive immune system present in autoimmune diseases.

This complex mixture of nutrient-rich growth factors, immunoglobulins, glycoconjugates and a variety of other important immune boosting compounds is a natural way to improve your physical health and well-being.

Colostrum is found only in the liquid that comes just before mother's milk, and provides an ideal combination of immune and growth factors which help in the removal of toxins, while supporting bone, muscle, nerve tissue, and cartilage health.

The immune factors in colostrum include immunoglobulins, glycoproteins, lactoferrin, lactalbumin, and cytokines, as well as various polypeptides, vitamins, and minerals.

Lactoferrin supports red blood cell strength and iron binding capacity, and immune globulin IgF-1. It also encourages better muscle growth, and aids in the production of healthy immune cells.

Bovine colostrum is an extremely powerful immune system modulator, containing as much as 40 times the number of immune factors found in human colostrum. All cattle involved are isolated and used exclusively for the production of colostrum. None of the cattle in New Zealand have ever been fed any kind of animal protein, and the advanced filtration process used to extract the colostrum fractions eliminates any potential for BSE contamination.

Cool facts about colostrum

With colostrum growing in popularity, we have a responsibility to educate and inform the public about the important facts to consider about this remarkable substance. Especially, how colostrum works.

Colostrum supports the human organism in two main ways. First, its multiple immune factors and natural antibiotics provide strong support for the immune system. Second, its many growth factors offer a broad spectrum boost to the organism to encourage optimum health and healing.
Colostrum Immunoglobulins
IgG - Enhances phagocytosis to neutralize toxins (80-85% of total antibody serum).
IgA - Protects mucosal surfaces (about 15%).
IgM - Enhances phagocytosis, especially against microorganisms (5-10%).
IgD - Stimulates B-cells to produce antibodies (.2%).
IgE - Associated with allergic reactions (.002%).

Colostrum contains antibodies and other components that act against E-Coli 0157:H7 and 0111:NM, Salmonella, Rotavirus, Coronavirus, and is effective against most other bacteria and viruses.

Immunoglobulins (found in colostrum) are able to neutralize the most harmful bacteria, viruses, and yeasts.
-Dr. Per Brandtzaeg; Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences

Human clinical study: Immune factors in cow colostrum, when taken orally, are effective against disease-causing organisms in the intestinal tract. Ingestion of bovine colostrum's immunoglobulins may be a new method of providing passive immunoprotection against a host of gut-associated disease causing antigens (viral and bacterial).
-Dr. R. McClead, et. al.; Pediatrics Research

Lactoferrin: An iron-binding protein with antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, lactoferrin has been shown in numerous research studies to be a potent, broad-spectrum natural antibiotic and antiviral agent. In a recent study, lactoferrin proved to be a powerful inhibitor of the HIV-1 virus. It also contains antibodies against a wide range of bacterial, fungal and protazoal pathogens. As well, lactoferrin is a potent antioxidant that inhibits the harmful effects of free radicals.

Proline-rich Polypeptide (PRP): This hormone regulates the thymus gland and helps boost an underactive immune system. The thymus produces the vital T-cells that fight viruses and antigens. The PRP found in colostrum also helps balance the overactive immune system usually present in autoimmune diseases where the body actually attacks itself.

Colostrum Growth Factors
They are compounds whose primary effects are to promote healing by building, maintaining, and repairing bone, muscle, nerves, and cartilage; to stimulate fat metabolism; to regulate protein metabolism during fasting; to maintain balanced blood sugar levels; to help regulate the brain chemicals that control mood; and to promote wound healing. A "bonus" effect of growth factors appears to be their anti-aging benefits, some of which include reduction of wrinkles and tighter, younger-looking skin.

Scientists have identified the following growth factors in bovine colostrum, epithelial growth factor (EGF), fibroblast growth factors (FGF), insulin-like growth factors I and II (IGF-I, IGF-II), and transforming growth factors (TGF A & B).

The growth fraction contains factors which are vital to the newborn to ensure cell growth and proper factors, particularly IGF-l and TGF-B, extend to nearly all structural cells of the body. They enhance DNA and protein synthesis and, by effecting repair to the intestinal walls, can significantly improve nutrients uptake. These growth factors improve our ability to regenerate and repair body cells, particularly in muscle and cartilage.

Take it on a full stomach.

Some nutrients are better absorbed when your digestive tract is geared up to handle food. Also, food slows the movement of the nutrients through the digestive tract, allowing more time for them to dissolve and be absorbed.

Unless your doctor or pharmacist says otherwise, it’s a good rule of thumb to wait a few hours between taking any prescription medication and taking a multi, since some nutrients could interfere with the drug, and vice versa.

No Deaths from Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids or Herbs
Poison Control Statistics Prove Supplements' Safety

(OMNS, January 19, 2010) There was not even one death caused by a dietary supplement in 2008, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System. The new 174-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published in the journal Clinical Toxicology, shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin.

Additionally, there were no deaths whatsoever from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John's wort , valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, melatonin, or any homeopathic remedies.

Furthermore, there were zero deaths in 2008 from any dietary mineral supplement. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multimineral supplements. Two children died as a result of medical use of the antacid sodium bicarbonate. The other "Electrolyte and Mineral" category death was due to a man accidentally drinking sodium hydroxide, a highly toxic degreaser and drain-opener.

No man, woman or child died from nutritional supplements. Period.

I have found that puppies and kittens that are not thriving respond within days to supplementation with bovine colostrum fed four times per day, mixed with water. I dose them at 1/8th to _ tsp depending on the size of the newborn. Once they are stable, I reduce the frequency on once per day and the amount to 1/3 tsp up to 25 pounds per body weight believe that colostrum from their mothers is not adequate or not being utilized by the newborn.

In the mid-1980 ‘s, when children were being diagnosed with diarrhea caused by rotavirus, bovine colostrum was successfully used to treat these children. Later studies showed that it protects children and adults against infectious diarrhea and diarrheas caused by the Cryptosporidium, especially in people who have weaken immune systems. I have seen the same thing in dogs and cats with chronic or acute diarrhea and immune deficiencies.

The fact that bovine colostrum is not species specific means that it can be used in all mammals. I have also used it in birds with good results. Over the past two and one half years I have used it extensively in my general practice. I have found it is complementary to homeopathy, acupuncture, Bach Flowers, glandular therapy, Aromatherapy, massage and nutrition. All of these modalities have benefited from bovine colostrum, in one way or another. I have found that colostrum to be the best topical agent for healing any possible wound in half the time any other products I have used over the past 28 years. The colostrum contains IgF (Epithelial growth Factors), IgF (Insulin-like Growth Factor), Transfer Factor, IgG (20 times that in human milk), PRP, etc. Research over the past few decades has revealed that bovine colostrum contains more than 80(some estimate 250) substances.

Why do we focus on individual cells? Healthy cells make healthy tissues. These healthy tissues form healthy organs such as the liver, kidneys and the heart. Two or more organs working together to provide a common function is called an organ system. Healthy organ systems produce a healthy body.

Cells are the foundation, or building blocks of the human body. If your cells are unhealthy, your foundation is shaken and your whole body is affected. Some common factors that can make cells unhealthy are air pollution, water contamination, daily stress, lack of exercise, erratic lifestyles and an imbalanced diet.

Our bodies are made up of 60 trillion cells that form the foundation of life. Each part of the body needs to be completely healthy in order for the body to function at the optimal capacity.

How to bring your body back to life

One of the primary functions of colostrum is gut health. The health of our gastrointestinal tract which consists of the mouth, esophagus, stomach and the intestines is essential to preventing disease. The gut has also been called our “second brain” and digestive issues are usually the source of most physical dis-eases.

We don’t need to look further than the gut when looking to alleviate most illnesses. Gut health is thought of in terms of diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, heartburn, and other GI problems. Unfortunately, we tend to ignore intestinal health when looking at conditions that seem unrelated such as: food allergies, autoimmune disorders, Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis.

A healthy digestive system is your first line of (disease) defense

When the bacteria in the gut are out of balance, dysbiosis is one of the consequences. In other words, the proportion of beneficial bacteria is out numbered by harmful bacteria – which leads the way to a “leaky gut”. Don’t ignore digestive disorders – look for a qualified, naturopathic physician to help you heal the gut.

Leaky gut is when the permeability of the gut lining increases so that toxins and pathogens (normally held in check) pass though the gut lining – moving freely throughout the body. The intestines now become the gateway to freedom for every type of bacteria, fungus and toxin – causing fatigue, brain fog plus many other chronic health problems.

Boost immunity with nature’s first food

Leaky gut can be devastating and the effects can last a lifetime. Colostrum has a cornucopia of essential immune boosting substances known to help heal leaky gut. There is a reason it’s the first feeding for a human being. Thankfully, breast feeding is making a popular comeback and will certainly help future generation – providing mothers keep their body healthy and strong.

In the book Colostrum, Life’s First Food, Dr. Daniel G. Clark’s message is loud and clear – bovine colostrum “rebuilds the immune system, destroys viruses, bacteria, and fungi, and accelerates healing of all body tissue, while helping with weight loss and builds lean muscle, while slowing down and reversing aging.”

According to Clark and the well-known naturopathic physician Dr. Bernard Jensen, colostrum plays a therapeutic role in AIDS, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, allergies, herpes, bacterial, viral and parasitic infections, gingivitis, colds and flu.

It’s time to expose a dirty, little secret about skin cancer

A possible cause of skin cancer might be right in your home or office. Exposing your skin to compact fluorescent bulbs can lead to premature aging of the skin and a risk of skin cancers – including melanoma. By the way, these cancer risks are supported by prominent scientists throughout the world.

Energy efficiency light bulbs come with hidden hazards for anyone within two feet of them. Researchers, at Stony Brook University, found these light bulbs leaked significant levels of UVC and UVA. This study was published in the journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology.

The scientists, led by Miriam Rafailovich, collected CFL bulbs from across Long Island, New York to measure the amount of UV the bulbs gave off. They were alarmed that many of the bulbs lacked a sufficient (protective) coating of phosphor – causing the leakage. They found that cracks in the compact bulbs was due to the fact that the coatings are brittle and had trouble making the bends required to make the bulbs.

Rafailovich is on record saying,“skin cells exposed to compact fluorescent light emissions showed the same damage as those exposed to UV light” when placed at close range. This is an estimate of less then two feet away from the bulb. All the bulbs, no matter which brand tested under laboratory conditions showed they can damage cells in the same way that UV radiation from the sun does.

A major call to action – stop buying fluorescent bulbs

The above study was done after some alarming reports came out in Israel, stating that there was a spike in skin cancer on a communal farm when the residents switched to fluorescent bulbs.

In the past two years, reports have shown up in the European Union literature, which stated that exposure to CFL bulbs seemed to be responsible for certain skin conditions such as photodematoses and skin cancer in humans. This information was published in the journal Photochemistry and Photobiology.

Fluorescent light far more dangerous than sunlight

UV light comes in three varieties: UVA, UVB and UVC. In skin cells, UVA creates reactive oxygen, which can penetrate into the skin. Outdoor sunlight exposes people to UVA and UVB.

UVC is usually scattered away by air, so we usually aren’t exposed to it while outside. With compact fluorescent light we are close to the source and it doesn’t dissipate like it would in an open air environment. That’s why fluorescent lighting is so dangerous.

UVC damages DNA and this growing concern over the danger of these light bulbs could finally put an end to this harmful product. The claims that the incandescent bulbs ban was imposed to fight global warming were fabricated according to analysis; the motive was and is profit – incandescent bulbs have a low profit margin.

So what is the solution? Buy LED lights, which contain no mercury and are significantly more energy efficient than both incandescent lights and fluorescent lights. They are expensive to purchase up front, but they pay for themselves in about two years – thanks to the savings in electricity (and they keep on working for 50,000 hours!).

New Studies Continue to Reveal the Health Benefits of Colostrum

Bovine Colostrums and Drug-Induced Intestinal Permeability

The June, 2001 edition of Clinical Science reports that the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) cause gastrointestinal injury. Bovine colostrum is a cheap, readily available source of growth factors, which reduces gastrointestinal injury in rats and mice. Researchers hypothesized that colostrum could reduce the rise in gut permeability caused by NSAIDs in volunteers and patients taking NSAIDs for clinical reasons. Two studies were performed, the first on the healthy volunteers, and the second on the NSAIDs patients. In the first group, no increased gut permeability was seen when colostrum was co-administered with NSAID indomethacin. Indomethacin alone caused a 3-fold increase in gut permeability. In the second group, permeability was not influenced by co-administration of test solutions. Researchers concluded that bovine colostrum may provide a novel approach to the prevention of NSAID induced gastrointestinal damage in humans.

Other Research Results

Other studies have shown that supplementation with bovine colostrum in combination with exercise training for 8 weeks may increase bone-free lean body mass in active men and women.

Candida colonization was reduced with administration of bovine colostrum supplementation in bone marrow transplant recipients.

Treatment of refactory diarrhea with bovine colostrum resulted in a complete or partial remission of the diarrhea in HIV positive patients with chronic diarrhea.

Bovine Colostrum Side Effects

Colostrum is food and should be thought of as such. There have been no significant side effects from supplementation with bovine colostrum reported in the literature. Although colostrum contains lactose, the amount is small. It depends on the degree of lactose intolerance and the amount of colostrum ingested whether symptoms will appear in the lactose intolerant.

Buying and Supplementing With Bovine Colostrum

You can get raw colostrum from your local dairy farmer. It needs to be refrigerated and consumed within a reasonably short time. Raw colostrum differs from processed colostrum because its immune factors come from just one cow. Processed colostrum comes from a pool of hundreds or thousands of cows and provides a broad spectrum of immune factors.

Choose colostrum from pasture-fed cows. They have a higher range of immunities. Be sure your colostrum comes from animals that are pesticide, antibiotic and rBST free, and is processed with very low heat. The compression used to create tablets will cause the colostrum to be exposed to excessive heat, so buy colostrum only in powdered form or in capsules.

You will want colostrum to reach your small intestine intact, without damage from saliva and stomach acids. So take it on an empty stomach with a good amount of water. Colostrum should be collected during the first 24 hours after birth, while it has its peak concentrations of immune and growth factors as well as digestive inhibitors.

Start with a large dose and continue until you feel you have had enough. Then reduce the dose to a maintenance level. Colostrum is food, so consume it until you are satisfied you have had enough.

If you are vegetarian, you may be interested to know that the Rishis (India's spiritual leaders) vegan diet has included colostrum for thousands of years.

And if you are feeling guilty consuming colostrum and image a poor calf going without, you can rest easy. The calf always gets the first few hours of colostrum. The herd owners want to ensure that their calves grow strong and thrive.
