Studies show that other components of colostrum also promote intestinal function. Growth factors include insulin growth factors (IGF-1 and IGF-2) and transforming growth factors (TGF-A and TGF-B). These growth factors, identical in composition to human growth factors, have the potential to enhance immune cell function and to nutritionally support healthy connective and nerve tissues in the body. Furthermore, growth factors promote glucose and fat metabolism for fuel, support protein synthesis, and help maintain lean muscle. This supports healthy body composition and has demonstrated the ability to enhance speed and strength training.
Todays dairy cows produce on average four to five gallons of colostrum in their first milking. The calf consumes one gallon of colostrum in its first two feedings, assuring passive immunity. The excess colostrum is not fed to the calf as it can cause intestinal upset after the first feedings. This excess is an ideal source for use in nutritional supplements.
Pure Encapsulations Colostrum, derived from USDA and FDA certified dairy farms in the US, is defatted and processed at low heat to preserve nutritional activity. It is standardized to contain 40% IgG and is also a concentrated source of lactoferrin and IGF-1. Colostrum is a nutrient-dense combination of immune system components and growth factors for supporting optimal natural defense, intestinal function, connective tissue health, and athletic potential that cannot be found elsewhere in nature.
