Why can’t your children’s immune system actively fight infections?
Your children’s immune system is made up of complex mixture of white blood cells (active immunity) and antibodies (passive immunity). The system detects a wide variety of foreign agents, from viruses to parasitic worms and kills them in order for the body to function properly.
As the children’s immune system develops slowly, they can be easily infected and exposed to episodes of diarrhoea, rashes, gastrointestinal upset, colds and flu, allergies and other immune problems. Sickness and infections are common below 6 years of age.
Therefore, you can protect your children by giving passive immunity obtained from breast milk containing colostrum. This pre-milk substance is nature’s way of providing protection for the young ones against viruses, bacteria, allergens, and toxins.
What is colostrum?
Colostrum is the first complete food available from the mammary secretion obtained within the first 24 – 48hrs hours after child birth. It provides many important biological elements and nutrients present in the mother’s blood.
Why do your children need to supplement with cow’s colostrum?
Cow’s colostrum has 20% immunoglobulin G (IgG) compared to only 2% IgG found in breast milk. Furthermore, cow’s colostrum has the same biological activity as human’s colostrum when given orally. Do remember that not all mothers are able to breast feed due to medical and physical conditions, such as inverted nipple, breast cancer, etc.
