In everyday uses, Colostrum is great for maintaining health, as well as preventing disease. It’s known as beestings or first milk, because it’s the first milk produced by mammals after giving birth. It holds a much higher protein content (15%) than the average content found in adult cow's milk (3%). It also contains two types of proteins. This makes it effective in strengthening the immune system, helping in establishing a healthy gut, and providing a laxative effect. Plus, Colostrum is really easy to digest. It’s most effective on an empty stomach.
