How Colostrum can support your immune system
During the pandemic supporting your immunity has become a growing concern amongst us all. In this eighth part of our series, with Maria’s expertise as an Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) practitioner we look at how can you support your immune system with supplements in light of the Coronavirus:
“I look at supporting your immune system with Colostrum.
What is Colostrum? Colostrum is a breast fluid produced by humans, cows, and other mammals before the breast milk is released. It’s very rich in nutrients including immune cells such as IgG antibodies and cytokines.
These immune cells which are responsible for modulating the immune system and helping it to work more efficiently, including helping to improve upper respiratory tract infections.
Therefore, supplementing an already healthy diet and lifestyle with colostrum may help support immune health, which is our number one priority right now! It is most commonly taken in powder or capsule form.”
