It appears that colostrum is a major key to digestive health. It not only protects the digestive tract from nasty bacterial infections, but also reduces the toxicity of those infections, and repairs the lining of the GI tract—all at the same time.
One study shows that colostrum contains very high levels of what scientists call a magic ingredient, pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor1, which directly orchestrates the repair of the digestive tract.
Another study explains how bovine colostrum2 works to prevent bacterial infections in the digestive tract as well as how its ability to repair the digestive tract prevents bacteria from entering your body through a leaky gut3 and causing major health problems.
Yet another study shows how bovine colostrum directly lowers NF-kappaB Protein complex that controls DNA transcription and is involved with cellular responses to stress, cytokines, free radicals, UV radiation, oxidized LDL, and infections. 4 in intestinal cells, the key inflammatory gene signal that is elevated during tissue destruction of the GI lining.
