Report of Study on Bovine Colostrum
Research on cattle colostrum is proceeding. The following report discusses the effect on humans.
- Improved Immunity
- Prevention of colds and influenza, prevention of infectious diseases such as rotavirus
- Intestinal repair action
- Enhancement of muscular strength and strength
- Anti-aging effect
Cattle Colostrum as MAF Food
- Food manufactured from bovine colostrum in powder form
- In terms of components, colostrum is very similar to blood
- It can be licked like an ice cream cone or taken in the form of enteric capsules
- Activates macrophages and boost immunity
Colostrum and Anti-Aging – What is the Immune Age?
Immunity is a system for keeping all living things of a body healthy. This immune system protects the body from bacteria and viruses, and eliminates cancer cells. The peak of human immunity is at age 20. At age 40 years, immunity decreases to one half, immune power goes down, and the body becomes prone more easily to various diseases.
Therefore, to conserve the immunity of the young is considered a necessary pre-condition for a long and healthy life. This is now becoming a real possibility.
How Macrophages (Phagocytes) Work
1. Function of NK Cells
An NK cell is a cell that phagocytizes and digests cancer cells, viruses and bacteria.
Macrophages differ from monocytes (mononuclear leukocytes) which account for 5% of white blood cells in the blood. They are ameboid-like cells in the center of immune cells and digests invading bacteria and viruses as well as foreign substances (cancer cells) in vivo.
In the past, macrophages came in two different types, M1 macrophages that activate immunity and
M2 macrophages that suppress immunity. However, recently it is thought that in addition to classical activated macrophages, wound-healing macrophages, suppressive macrophages or intermediate activation states also exist. The diversity of macrophage activation is not yet fully understood.
About the important function of this activated macrophage, cases of a complete cure from AIDS, breast cancer, colon cancer or prostate cancer have been reported, and there is a possibility that the evaluation and recognition of activated macrophages will have to be fully revised.
The process of activating macrophages to kill cancer cells is as follows:
- Activated macrophages bind directly to cancer cells
- Activated macrophages liberate and release chemical substances (e.g. hydrogen peroxide) to exterminate cancer cells
2. Function of Dendritic Cells
Antigen presentation of phagocytosed cancer cells, viruses and bacteria is performed on helper T cells and B lymphocytes. I.e., it acts as a dendritic cell.
Upon ingestion of antigens, macrophages release various cytokines and activate specific T cells. Macrophages make foreign fragments that have been taken up and decomposed by phagocytosis into fragments and bind them to the class II MHC (MHC-II) originally contained in the cells to express them on the cell surface. This is called antigen presentation by macrophage.
