Improves nutrients absorption

Our gut (AKA our intestinal or digestive tract), carries out many important functions in the body. It is responsible for breaking down and absorbing nutrients from foods and eliminating waste products. It also plays a role in detoxification processes. Many people are surprised to know that over 70% of our immune system is housed in the gut.

Your gut’s health can be altered in many ways, but some common factors include overuse of antibiotics or NSAIDs (certain pain medications like ibuprofen), GI infections, parasites, food allergies and intolerances, and a poor diet.

Initial studies suggest that bovine colostrum can support your digestive tract. One main reason for this revolves around a protein called secretory IgA (AKA, sigA), which is an antibody that is a key player in immune function. Studies show that low levels of sigA can potentially lead to autoimmune diseases (such as Crohn’s disease), along with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), ulcerative colitis and less severe issues such as diarrhea.

Colostrum can increase levels of sigA in the body, supporting optimal gut maintenance and repair, along with immune health.

While more studies are needed on certain claims made about its benefits, research is clear on the fact that colostrum helps to alleviate symptoms of diarrhea. It is well tolerated by children (and adults) and able to diminish the frequency of loose stools associated with diarrhea.
