What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is something often overlooked for its health benefits, but has proven to be an amazing superfood for both humans and pets. Known as “Nature’s first milk”; this is the first milk that is produced by a nursing mother in mammals. Packed with nutrients vital to the development of offspring, it contains a wide variety of proteins, fats, digestive enzymes, growth factors, and immunomodulating compounds.
These nutrients are what sets up the infant’s health for the rest of their lives and can contribute to their ability to fight off infections, allergens, cognitive development, and digest foods properly.
