What is Colostrum?
A Colostrum is the pre-milk provided by mammal mothers to their newborns. Colostrum is the first milk produced by mammals for their young ones. This transfers the passive immunity gained by the mother to the baby. Colostrum is low in volume but high in nutritional value. The Colostrum is a mixture of carbohydrate, protein, growth factors, blood cells and immunoglobulins. It is yellow, thick and sticky in nature. The bovine Colostrum has therapeutic potential to the human being as it contains near about 90 useful components.
