Colostrum is a super food of sorts, it comes from the first milking of the cow and contains many immune enhancing substances to help the newborn to sustain immune attack.   I have been using it  in my fight with the protozoa parasites that ravage the gastrointestinal tract, it has helped me and others report the same help.

It turns out that colostrum can have anti-aging effects as well - here is an excerpt from a commercial blog

By Donald R. Henderson, M.D., M.P.H. Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and Gastroenterology at UCLA School of MedicineThe search for youth started long before Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon roamed the New World seeking the fountain of youth. Much of that search, then and now, has focused on the superficial effects of aging – graying hair, wrinkles, and reduced endurance.
However, aging is far more than the physical changes in our body’s appearance. 

While “feeling old” may be a state of mind as well as a set of physical sensations, the aging process itself is a biological one. No matter how young we feel, our body goes through physiological changes as we get older.
These changes bring about a decline in our ability to fight disease and infection. They also affect our central nervous system and alter our cellular structures, which, in turn, affect our muscles, skin, and skeletal form.However, it is possible that the fountain of youth – or a part of it anyway – has been found in Colostrum. For the 63% of American adults who report they are concerned about the effects of aging, and the 19 million people expected to be over age 85 by 2050, this is great news.But just how is colostrum able to do all this?

Colostrum: The Anti-Aging Connection
While changes due to aging in our cells, muscles and immune system sound like a
series of irreversible processes, they can be slowed with colostrum because of the growth factors it contains. Among its myriad ingredients, colostrum contains:

Natural antibiotic factors:

immunoglobulins (IgG, IgA, IgD, IgE, and IgM) – substances that
neutralize toxins, viruses, and bacteria, particularly in the digestive and respiratory systems

cytokines – small proteins that affect the behavior of other cells

lactoferrin – a substance that neutralizes bacteria and helps release cytokines

growth factors (IGF-I, IGF-II, EGF, TGF ? & ?) – substances that aid in cellular, muscular and skeletal growth
