Intro to Bovine
Nature’s Perfect Superfood
Much like humans, cows (bovine) produce colostrum. Newborn calves receive protective proteins and other nutrients directly from their mother’s colostrum in the days following birth, giving them what they need to survive and thrive. Interestingly, research has shown that colostrum from dairy cows can play an important role in supporting human health.
While it may be surprising to hear that cow colostrum is beneficial for human health, there are a few reasons why. Unlike humans, cows are unable to pass key immune factors and other beneficial nutrients from mother to fetus during pregnancy – when a calf is born, it is completely dependent on its mother’s colostrum for these essential nutrients. Thus, cow colostrum contains a higher concentration of many key immune factors and other beneficial nutrients than human colostrum.
