FACTOR BOVINE COLOSTRUM
potent source of growth and immuno-factors from mother’s
hormone and growth hormone releasers have recently
achieved a great deal of worldwide popularity.
Radio, television and print ads appear virtually
everywhere expounding upon the amazing benefits
of replenishing the body with human growth hormone.
However, there exists a product that not only
contains growth hormone plus a wide range of other
significant growth factors at a much more affordable
price, but it contains a wide range of potent
immune factors as well. The product is Alpha Factor
What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is natures perfect first food. It is the pre-milk
substance produced from the mother's breasts of all mammals
during the first 24-48 hours of lactation. Colostrum supplies
immune and growth factors and a perfect combination of vitamins
and minerals to insure the health, vitality and growth of
It is estimated that colostrum triggers at least fifty processes
in the newborn, including transferring all the immune factors
and the entire memory from the mother's own immune system.
Medical Research has shown that the most important
immune and growth factors for humans can be provided from
bovine colostrum. It is biologically transferable to all mammals
including man and is much higher in immune factors than human
mother's colostrum. Laboratory analyses of both immune and
growth factors from bovine colostrum indicate that they are
identical to those found in human colostrum except for the
fact that the levels of these factors are significantly higher
in the bovine version. Bovine colostrum is actually 40 times
richer in immune factors than human colostrum. For example,
human colostrum contains 2% of IgG (immuno-globulin G) while
cow colostrum contains 86% of IgG, the most important of the
immuno-globulins found in the body.
Doctors also discovered that cows' colostrum contains special
glycoproteins that are extremely effective at protecting the
immune and growth factors in colostrum from destruction by
adult human digestive enzymes.
do we need Colostrum as adults?
Experience has shown that nature knows
best in many cases of healing. But as we age, we notice
it takes us a little longer to fight off a cold or
flu, we become more vulnerable to disease, our energy
and enthusiasm lessen, our skin loses its elasticity,
we gain unwanted weight and lose muscle tone. This
is because after maturity, we gradually lose the natural
immune and growth factors in our body...Aging, illness
and death occur with the loss of immune and growth
factors in our bodies. Medical science has shown in
hundreds of published reports worldwide that these
can possibly be replaced in the human body with bovine
colostrum... Dr. Olle Hernell, At the University of
The past 20 years has witnessed the
publication of over 2000 research papers strongly
supportive of both colostrum and its numerous components.
As one prestigious research institute stated... "Bovine
colostrum offers tremendous possibilities for providing
unparalleled support for the immune system that may
be the deciding factor in the bodies war against illness."
Colostrum has antioxidant properties,
natural anti-inflammatory properties and is a source
of many vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids.
Bovine colostrum rebuilds the immune system, helps
the body ward off foreign invaders, accelerates healing
of all body tissue, increases bone and lean muscle
mass and replenishes an aging system.
Supplementation of colostrum
enhances the efficiency of amino acid and carbohydrate fuel
uptake by the intestine. More nutrients are made available
for muscle cells and other vital tissues and organs. One of
the reasons for the energy boost seen in most healthy individuals
who use colostrum as a food supplement is this ability of
colostrum to improve nutrient availability... "Colostrum stimulates
the lymphoid tissue providing benefits in aged or immuno-deficient
people"....Drs. Bocci, Bremen, Corradeschi, Luzzi and Paulesu;
"Researchers reported that colostrum stimulates maturation
of B Lymphocytes (type of white blood cell) and primes them
for production of antibodies, enhances growth and differentiation
of white blood cells. Similar activity in cow and human colostrum
can also activate Macrophages" ...Dr. M. Julius, McGill University,
Montreal: Science News
"Bovine colostrum contains high levels of growth factors that
promote normal cell growth and DNA synthesis" ...Drs. Oda,
Shinnichi, et. al.; Comparative Biochemical Physiology.
"Drs. suggest that an important role for growth factors is
in promoting wound healing. Accelerated healing is possible
for treatment with trauma and surgical wounds" ...Drs. Bhora,
et. al.; Journal. Surg. Res
Components of Colostrum
The most important components of colostrum can basically be
broken down into two major categories: growth factors and
immune system factors.
Growth hormone (GH), Insulin-like growth factor-I and II
(IGF-1 and IGF-II), Epithelial growth factor (EgF), Fibroblast
growth factor (FgF), Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF),Transforming
growth factors A & B (TgA and B)
Immunoglobulins (A,D,E,G &M),Gamma Globulin, Cytokines:
Interleukins 1,6,10;Interferon, G;lymphokines, Leukocytes,
Lymphokines, Lactoferin, Proline-Rich-Polypeptides (PRP),
Protease Inhibitors, Trypsin Inhibitors, Antibodies, Glycoproteins,
Lactobacillus Bifidus Acidophilus, Oligo Polysaccharides,
Glycoconjugates, Orotic Acid, secretory IgA, IgA specific
helper, B Lactoglobulin, Lactalbumin,Albumin, Prealbumin,
Alpha 1-Antitripsin, Alpha 1-Fetoprotein, Alpha 2-Macroglobulin,
Alpha 2- AP Glycoprotein, C3 & C4 Orosomucoids, Lyozyme,
Lactoperoxidase, Thiocyanate, Peroxidase, Xanthine Oxidase,
Vitamins A, B12, E, Sulfur.
The body's growth factors are capable of increasing T-cell
production, accelerating healing, balancing blood glucose,
reducing insulin need, increasing growth and repair of vital
tissues while metabolizing fat for fuel. Medical studies
have shown the vital growth factors IgF-1, TgF A & B and
nucleotides from bovine colostrum to be identical to human
in composition and helps provide the raw materials to repair
vital DNA and RNA in the bodies cells. Further, by stimulating
DNA formation it has been shown that they can help stimulate
normal cell and tissue growth, regeneration and accelerated
repair of aged or injured muscle, skin collagen, bone, cartilage,
nerve tissues, heart muscle and new blood vessels for collateral
coronary circulation. These growth factors facilitate the
healing of tissues damaged by ulcers, trauma, burns, surgery
or inflammatory disease. .."Transforming Growth Factors
A & B (TGF A & B) in bovine Colostrum were involved in normal
cellular activities such as cell proliferation, and tissue
repair. Also reported it promoted the synthesis and repair
of DNA - the master code of the cell." ...July 1992 New
England Journal of Medicine.
Colostrum provides a good source of IgF-1 as a complementary
therapy for successful weight loss and building of lean
muscle. IgF-1 is required by the body to metabolize fat
for energy through the Krebs cycle but with aging, less
IgF-1 is produced in the body. It helps stimulate the body
to burn fat for fuel instead of the bodys own muscle tissue
in times of diet and fasting.."High age is associated with
reduced levels of growth hormones:GH and IgF-1. Induction
of GH and IgF-1 increase body weight through muscle growth
of aged subjects" ...Drs. Ullman, Sommerland & Skottner,
Dept. of Pathology and Pharmacology, Univ. of Gothenburg,
Sahlgren Hospital & HabiVitrum AB, Stockholm, Sweden
Human trials in 1990 reported that IgF-1 stimulates glucose
utilization. It can help balance blood sugars (non insulin
diabetics and hypoglycemia). Inadequate levels of IgF-1
are associated with an increased incidence of Type II diabetes
and difficulty in losing weight despite a proper nutritional
intake and adequate exercise.
Additionally, IgF-1 and GH in colostrum normalizes LDL-cholesterol
while increasing HDL-cholesterol concentrations (the good
Genetically engineered versions of IGF-1 and GH are now
marketed but they are found in high concentrations in colostrum.
Biotechnology companies are currently selling IgF-1 for
as much as $800 per 50 cc vial. GH is also very expensive.
Even less expensive products marketed as growth hormone
releasers (designed to help the body to manufacture their
own HGH) are markedly more expensive than Colostrum. None
of these expensive products contain any of the vast array
of immune factors.
Drug manufacturers have tried to copy (genetically engineer)
and market several of the individual components of colostrum,
most notably interferon, gamma globulin, growth hormone,
IgF-1 and protease inhibitors. Some of the following colostrum
components may very well be next on the list of major breakthroughs
by the pharmaceutical/nutraceutical industry: Immunoglobulins
(A, D, E, G and M) - the most abundant of the immune factors
found in colostrum; IgG neutralizes toxins and microbes
in the lymph and circulatory system; IgM destroys bacteria
while IgE and IgD are highly antiviral.
Colostrum and breast milk (from cows and humans) stimulates
the newborns immune system; as yet, unidentified proteins
speed the maturation of cultured B Lymphocytes (type of
white blood cell) and primes them for production of antibodies...
"Clinical research by Dr. David Tyrell, in England, in 1980,
revealed that a high percentage of the antibodies and immunoglobulins
present in colostrum are believed not to be absorbed but
remain in the intestinal tract where they attack disease
causing organisms before they penetrate the body and cause
disease. The remainder are believed to be absorbed and distributed
to assist in our internal defense processes. It is this
combination of action that is believed to make colostrum
so unique and effective as an oral supplement." ...
"Studies with human volunteers found that the preservation
of the biological activity of IgG (Immunoglobulin), in the
digestive secretions of adults receiving bovine colostrum
orally, indicates passive enteral (intestinal) immunization
for the prevention and treatment of acute intestinal diseases...
Dr. L.B. Khazenson; Microbial & Epidemial Immunobiology.
Colostrum has been shown to contain specific antibodies
that may help our body in its fight against specific diseases
such as pneumonia, RVS, dysentery, candida, flu, and numerous
other illnesses Lactoferrin: an antiviral, anti-bacterial,
anti-inflammatory, iron-binding protein with therapeutic
effects in cancer, HIV, Cytomegalovirus, herpes , Chronic
fatigue Syndrome, Candida albicans and other infections.
helps deprive bacteria of the iron they require to reproduce
and releases iron into the red blood cells enhancing oxygenation
of tissues. Lactoferrin modulates cytokine release and its
receptors have been found on most immune cells including
lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages and platelets... "Concentration
of Lactoferrin and Transferrin in bovine colostrum found
necessary to transport iron into blood. Highest concentrations
of both substances were found in the first milking after
birth" ...Drs. Sanchez, et al, Biological Chemistry
Polypeptide (PRP): a hormone that regulates
the thymus gland (bodies central command for the immune
system), stimulating an under active immune system or down-regulating
an overactive immune system as seen in autoimmune disease
(MS, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, chronic fatigue
syndrome, allergies, etc.). It has been demonstrated to
improve or eliminate symptomatology of both allergies and
autoimmune diseases. PRP inhibits the overproduction of
lymphocytes and T-cells and reduces the major symptoms of
allergies and autoimmune disease: pain, swelling and inflammation...
"PRP, in bovine colostrum, has the same ability to regulate
activity of the immune system as hormones of the Thymus
gland. It activates an underactive immune system, helping
it move into action against disease-causing organisms. PRP
also suppresses an overactive immune system, such as is
often seen in the autoimmune diseases. PRP is highly anti-inflammatory
and also appears to act on T-cell precursors to produce
helper T-cells and suppresser T-cells" ...Drs. Staroscik,
et. al., Molecular Immunology.
... "PRP turns white blood cells into functionally active
T cells. Results were shown in treatment of auto-immune
disorders and cancer. An important Immune modulator stimulates
an underactive immune system and tones down an overactive
one"...Drs. Janusz & Lisowski; Archives of Immunology
Glycoproteins: (Protease inhibitors)
A digestive factor that has been shown to help immune and
growth factors survive the passage through the highly acidic
Lactalbumin: Research indicates
tremendous possibilities that lactalbumins can be highly
effective against numerous forms of cancer and viruses.
Colostrum Lactalbumin has been found to be able to cause
the selective death (paposes) of cancer cells, leaving the
surrounding non-cancerous tissues unaffected. Lactobacillus
Bifidus Acidophilus: Friendly flora which is necessary for
the digestion of food and in the reduction of the growth
of harmful bacterial in the digestive system. Shown to effectively
combat candida albicans.
Cytokine's: Interlukin 1 &
6, Interferon Y and Lymphokines: Shown to stimulate the
lymph glands and are thought to be highly effective antiviral
immune substance. Interleukins that regulate the duration
and intensity of the immune response, are responsible for
cell to cell communication, boost T-cell activity and the
production of immunoglobulins. Interleukin-10 is strongly
anti-inflammatory, especially in arthritic joints.
The benefits of cytokines in the treatment of cancer was
first popularized by the 1985 Steven Rosenberg Book, Quiet
Strides in the War on Cancer. Since that time, the same
cytokines found in colostrum (Interleukins 1, 6, 10, Interferon
G and Lymphokines) have been the single most researched
protocols in scientific research for the cure for cancer.
Vitamins and Minerals: Colostrum
is not a supplement... it is the whole food for the newborn...
its combination of vitamins and minerals are naturally occurring
and in perfect combination. Vitamins - A, B12 and E are
found in small amounts while traces of all others are also
present in colostrum.
Sulfur: A mineral with multiple
uses in metabolism and as part of many structural body proteins.
Leukocytes: Stimulate the
production of interferon, which slows viral reproduction,
and penetration of cell walls.
peroxidase and xanthine oxidase oxidize bacteria through
their ability to release hydrogen peroxide.
Lysozyme: A hydrolyzing agent
and immune system booster capable of destroying bacteria
and viruses on contact.
Trypsin Inhibitors and Protease Inhibitors:
Prevent the destruction of immune and growth factors in
colostrum from being broken down in the GI tract; they also
prevent H. pylori from attaching to the walls of the stomach
and can have a beneficial role in the treatment of peptic
peptides produced by activated lymphocytes which mediate
the immune response.
Oligo Polysaccharides and Glycoconjugates:
attract and bind to pathogens (Strep., E. Coli ), Salmonella,
Cryptosporidia, Giardia, Entamoeba, Shigella, Clostridium
Difficile Toxins A & B and Cholera) preventing them from
attaching or entering the mucous membranes.
Orotic Acid: Stops the formation
of pyrimidine nucleotides and prevents hemolytic anemia.
High quality bovine Colostrum is collected only from veterinary
certified healthy grade A dairy cows that are pesticide,
herbicide, steroid, antibiotic and hormone free. Collected
only during the first 24 hours after the second calving
(and only after the calf has obtained all that's necessary
for its survival). Bovine Colostrum is immediately frozen
and shipped to a USDA inspected processing plant where it
is gently spray dried to insure a maximum of immune activity.
Colostrum is then processed to remove the maximum fat and
lactose and laboratory tested to insure the highest quality
and purity of content.
Not all colostrum products on the market are biologically
active due to improper processing through the use of high
temperatures and pasteurization or the formation of colostrum
into tablets, a method that requires high pressure and generates
heat, destroying biological activity. Colostrum in liquid
form is also less than ideal. It is not as concentrated
as the powdered versions of this substance and must be kept
refrigerated due to its short shelf life. Preservatives
must be added which further dilute and destroy its biological
capabilities. Low heat processing, the removal of fat, whey
and lactose as well as laboratory testing to insure biological
integrity and safety are the rigid standards set for our
colostrum. High quality Colostrum must be certified to contain
a minimum of 16% immunoglobulins. Alpha Factor Colostrum
is produced in an FDA approved facility and has been assayed
at 16+% IgG as opposed to some colostrum products that assay
at less than 7%.
