 Colostrum, Digestive Immunity, and Digestive Repair
It appears that colostrum is a major key to digestive health.   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 repair the digestive tract.

Yet another study shows how bovine colostrum directly lowers NF-kappaB4 in intestinal cells.

Digestive integrity is key to your health in many ways, it is the foundation of healthy immunity. Colostrum is one tool you can employ to help support healthy digestive and immune system function.
