Bovine colostrum is the nutrient-rich, pre-milk fluid that is secreted by the mammary glands of female mammals to nourish their young. Most often, this fluid is taken in the first twelve hours of a newborn’s life. Colostrum contains the essential nutrients for a young cow to grow and develop. Bovine colostrum is practically identical to human colostrum; however, bovine colostrum contains nearly four times as many immune factors than human colostrum.
POSSIBLE ADVANTAGES OF BOVINE COLOSTRUM
Bovine colostrum contains immune factors that can help maintain balance and stability in your body leading to a stronger immune system. A stronger immune system is beneficial to anyone. It is especially important to a bodybuilder because it will reduce the risk of missing a workout due to sickness, and contribute to overall health.
Bovine colostrum is also thought by many to assist in regeneration and improve normal growth of aged or injured muscle, bone, cartilage, skin collagen, and nerve tissue. This would prove especially essential for the over-40 baby-boomer bodybuilder.
