Colostrum, life's first food leads to miraculous weight loss
A company called Symbiotics, extracts this phenomenal compound from New Zealand pasture fed cow's milk. This pre-milk substance is an ingredient in human breast milk as well, and is passed from mother to baby in the crucial first forty-eight hours following birth. It protects the newborn from many viruses, bacteria, allergens and toxins. According to Daniel G. Clark, MD and author of Colostrum Life's First Food, bovine colostrum has been used for thousands of years in India for its physical as well as spiritual benefits.

Colostrum contains immune factors such as immunoglobulin (a naturally occurring protein) and poly-rich peptides (PRP) that regulate the immune system, promoting good health naturally. Growth hormone (GH), as well as other growth factors are also present in large numbers. GH, touted by some as the fountain of youth, is a remarkable substance having the ability to repair and rebuild muscle, bone and cartilidge, and as an added benefit, it increases the body's ability to burn fat. Colostrum, available in pill or powder form, can now be found locally at many vitamin and health food stores.
