An amazing thing happens at birth, the production of Colostrum – a mother’s first milk. It is a superfood, because it contains so many good and vital things for a newborn. It activates a newborn’s immune system, jumpstarts gut health, protects against disease and infection and much more – and it’s good for adults too!
Since it is produced in mammals during or around a birth, you may be wondering how someone might even get access to it. Good question.
Well, believe it or not, bovine colostrum (coming from a cow) is very similar to human colostrum. Because they share so many of the same components, the way they work in the body is also highly similar, with some amazing benefits. Learn all about it in this podcast.
In this episode, you will discover:
- “The delivery makes the product”
- What if I am lactose intolerant?
- Colostrum is a “diva”
- Restores, regenerates, rebalances
With nutrition being such a significant key to our health, it’s good to know what we mean by functional nutrition. Functional nutrition is based on a deep understanding of the physiology and biochemistry of the body, and focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of an illness. The key to health is turning symptoms into insights that lead to identifying root causes.
