the first 48 hours after birth, a mother produces a very special,
pre-milk breast fluid called colostrum. It contains numerous
substances which protect the infant from infections and other
diseases, and stimulates growth and over fifty different health
supportive processes, some of which last a life time. These powerful
factors have been shown to be beneficial also to people of all ages.
All mammals produce colostrum, however, cow (bovine) colostrum is
the only animal form that can be utilized by humans. Since dairy
cows produce more colostrum than is needed by the newborn calves,
the excess can be processed for human use a powder for children and
adults. Actually bovine colostrum contains even more health
supportive substances than human colostrum.
One of the most important ingredients in colostrum is the immune
globulin, IgF-1 which stimulates healing, muscle growth, and the
production of immune cells, helps stabilize sugar levels, similar to
insulin function, and increases the burning of fat. Bovine colostrum
contains ten times the amount of IgF-1 than human colostrum.
Colostrum For Children
Many babies today are not breast fed even in the first critical
few days. They have no source of colostrum unless they are given a
supplement, since no milk or baby formula contains this important
substance. Infants, with a developing immune system, are vulnerable
to bacteria and virus infections.
They also need stimulation to many basic metabolic processes
necessary during their rapid growth and their entry into the world
outside the protective immunity of the mothers womb. Colostrum
capsule may be easily opened and the powder sprinkled into baby
formula and later into the child’s food.
Colostrum For Adults
As we age we produce less immune and growth factors that are
needed to heal tissue damage and to fight disease. Colostrum can
provide many of these important factors which are included in
Energy And The Physical Body
In addition to IgF-1, and TgF-A & B, Epithelial Growth Factor
(EgF) regenerates muscle, nerve, bone and cartilage - affecting all
of the structural cells of the body, and helps to increase the
anabolic process of protein synthesis, build lean muscle tissue, and
burn fat for energy.
Constituents of FirstFood™
Preparation of FirstFood™
- 1) Immunoglobulins (antibodies): FirstFood™ contains all of
the immunoglobulins - IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM.
- 2) Lactoferin: an iron-binding protein which releases iron to
the red blood cells.
- 3) Proline-rich Polypeptides (PRP): regulates under activity
or over activity of the immune system.
- 4) IgF-1: Insulin like and Transforming Growth Factors -
stimulates T-cell, production, muscle growth, and reduces
- 5) Leukocytes: stimulates production of interferon.
- 6) Hydrogen peroxide producing enzymes: attack bacteria.
- 7) Lysozymes: an enzyme that destroys bacteria and viruses.
- 8) Cytokines: stimulate and regulate immune response,
communications, and enhance immunity towards mutated cells.
- 9) Interlukin 10: reduces inflammation.
- 10) Long chain sugars: block bacteria from attaching to mucus
- 11) Orotic acid: supports red blood cell integrity.
bovine origin colostrum is harvested from controlled, healthy
cows at a state licensed, USDA inspected dairy. It is shown by
laboratory testing to be free of bacteria, herbicides, pesticides,
and antibiotics. It is collected in the 24 hours after the birth of
the cow’s second calfing at which time the highest concentration
of immune and growth factors are present. It is then frozen and sent
to a licensed food processing facility for processing as a powder,
which is finally measured into Vcaps in an FDA registered
Unlike many complex proteins, colostrum is not reduced to
individual amino acids in the stomach because of natural digestive
enzyme inhibitors. This permits colostrum to pass intact into the
intestinal tract for absorption into the blood stream.
