Immunecare Colostrum 120 capsules If Echinacea is a soldier fighting to keep the body’s immune system healthy, then Colostrum is a complete army. In fact, it has 37 immune factors and a dozen growth factors that help repair skin, bones, muscle and connective tissue to help keep our bodies young. Please note that our Colostrum is not supplied by Fonterra. What is Colostrum? Colostrum is arguably nature’s most effective immune system booster, featured in Susan Clark’s ‘What Really Works in Natural Medicine’. The ‘first milk’ produced by dairy cows in the days immediately after calving, it has a high concentration of proteins with antibodies. Colostrum is completely transferable to humans hence we can enjoy the significant health benefits from this natural and potent protector. What Does it Do? Rigorous scientific testing of Colostrum in the US and the UK has found it to: Improve energy levels Increase concentration Help control pain Promote healing Boost the immune system What Can it Help? Its composition is so potent and varied that it can be used to help a wide range of conditions. In particular it can: Protect against colds, flu, ear, nose and chest infections Help heal wounds and minimise skin disorders Rid the body of viruses including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME, Fibromyalgia and Glandular Fever Enhance fitness levels among athletes and speed up recovery Heal and protect against gastrointestinal disorders including IBS, Colitis, Leaky Gut, diarrhoea and Crohn’s Disease. Children and Colostrum The return to school marks the major shift in every child’s life-year. New friends, new learning, new teachers, a host of changes and new experiences. It is also a role of changes in season, climate, and daily schedule. Perhaps due to all of these reasons – and the major one of increased contact with lots of other children – this is the time of year when children are also most susceptible to catching whatever may be going around the school and community. This can also be a trying time of year for parents, as they try to protect their children’s health (as well as their own!). Perhaps you have wondered: •Why do some children seem to catch every bug that goes around and others don’t? •Why do some children recover quickly while other children take a long time to recuperate? •How can I use natural remedies and supplements to protect and strengthen my child’s immune system this season? There are always two factors involved whenever a child (or adult) catches anything: 1.1. The strength of the bug (the bacteria or virus). 2.2. The strength of the child’s immune system. These two factors determine who catches the bug, who gets what, and the severity or degree of symptoms that they may experience. All day long, all year long, we are all being exposed to germs, bacteria, and viruses. The strength of your child’s immune system on each particular day and moment determines whether they will catch something or not. When any sort of flu or other virus is going around the community, almost every person will come in contact with it in some way. Generally however, only 10-15% of those who came in contact with it, will catch it and develop symptoms. The sole difference between those who caught it and those who didn’t is the strength and integrity of their immune system. This is not to say that a healthy child will never catch anything. Catching what may be circulating through the school or day-care is a normal and natural part of how each child’s immune system is challenged, develops, matures, strengthens and creates protection for later in life. Colostrum is nature’s way to restore, strengthen and regulate immune function. This is because colostrum contains and provides all of the immune peptides, co-factors and information that is required for initiating and supporting the development of the immune system in the newborn baby. Nature’s wisdom supplied in the first food for every child, indicates the profound importance of the immune nutrients found in colostrum for supporting healthy growth and immune function. If your child has been catching things too easily or taking too long to recuperate then give Colostrum on a daily basis for a few months to help strengthen and support their immune system.
