|A healthy body depends heavily on a healthy immune system. Functions
of the immune system include both recognizing and remembering alien
substances such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites; and also
responding when an invading agent is present. A balanced and healthy
immune system is essential to the body's ability to defend against
infections; anything we can do to strengthen our immune system will
help to assure our well-being and longevity.
Today, however, there are a dizzying array of factors that contribute
to the general weakening of the body's defenses. Current research
indicates that antibiotics have begun to fail as the resistance of many
infectious strains increases. The extensive spread of infectious diseases
has made it increasingly more difficult to fight these same diseases.
Fortunately, recent research has uncovered a natural agent that can
potentially save lives and increase the quality of life for many people.
Colostrum, and its various constituents, is this newly discovered agent,
and represents an exciting and natural way of aiding in the prevention
and curing of disease.
The discovery of how colostrum can effectively train one's immune
response is a very exciting development in today's health world. The
principal role of colostrum's communication agents (sometimes referred
to as transfer factors) is to transfer immune recognition signals
between immune cells and thereby assist in educating naive immune
cells about a present or potential danger.|
