Baggin’ Out

Step right up Step right up! Don’t be shy. We’ve got what you need, the miracle elixer to life: COLOSTRUM. Yep that’s right, in fluid form–unpasturized and unhomogenized.  Getting old? Got a belly ache? Losin’ your hair? Paranoid the cops are out to get you? Then try some COLOSTRUM!

OK, wait a sec.

Maybe it doesn’t cure paranoia. But I’m sure someone out there will say it does. There are a lot of people out there saying a lot of things about it. Even these two old hilarious white guys are getting in the fray:

We, at Sea Breeze Farm make no claims about what colostrum can offer. The modern dairy cow produces 3x-5x more milk than the calf could possibly drink. We must milk the newly lactating cow, or else the incredible amount of pressure in her full udder will not only cause pain but also, potentially, mastitis. Some people drink it because they like the flavor. Others drink it because of the potential health effects. I think it tastes great with rum.

Here is what some folks I’ve never met have to say about it:

Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows contains immunoglobulins specific to many human pathogens, including Escherichia coli, Cryptosporidium parvum, Shigella flexneri, Salmonella, Staphylococcus,[25]and rotavirus (which causes diarrhea in infants). Before the development of antibiotics, colostrum was the main source of immunoglobulins used to fight infections. In fact, when Albert Sabin made his first oral vaccine against polio, the immunoglobulin he used came from bovine colostrum.[26] When antibiotics began to appear, interest in colostrum waned, but now that antibiotic-resistant strains of pathogens have developed, interest is once again returning to natural alternatives to antibiotics, namely, colostrum.[27]
