Colsostrum with Beta Glucan is a natural colostrum supplement from Dee Cee Labs.Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced by every mammal mother prior to the milk production and is a rich source of antibodies, growth factors.
According to many experts, colostrum is one of Mother Nature's healthiest substances. It was designed by Mother Nature to give our immune system a boost and to promote body growth. Much research has revealed that colostrum has powerful natural immune and growth factors that bring the body to a state of balance.
Dee Cee Labs' Colostrum with beta glucancontains 'ColostruMune', which is a pure bovine colostrum that is standardized to provide 25% immunoglobulins, nutrients that have been clinically shown to support the immune system. ColostruMune is unaltered in content and subjected to as few changes as possible in order to preserve its natural wholesomeness.
The benefits of colostrum are many; it helps support healthy immune function and it also enables us to resist the harmful effects of pollutants, contaminants and allergens. Bovine colostrum may be beneficial in defending against peptic ulcer development caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs.
In a study done with rats, the pretreatment with 0.5 or 1.0 ml of a colostrum preparation reduced indomethacin-induced gastric injury by 30% and 60%, respectively. It is not known at this time whether bovine colostrum has this effect in humans. In another study, a bovine colostrum product obtained from cows immunized against Candida albicans was shown to be effective in lowering levels of this fungus in severely immuno-suppressed patients. Likewise, AIDS patients with chronic Cryptosporidium parvum diarrhea were found to be helped by a formulation consisting of concentrated bovine immunoglobulins that was given in dosages up to 40 grams daily.
Another ingredient in Dee Cee Labs' Colostrum with Beta Glucan is Lactoferrin, which has antibacterial and possible anti-viral action. It is thought that the antibacterial action of a lactoferrin supplement may be due to its ability to strongly bind iron. Iron is essential to assist the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Another mechanism might be lactoferrin's ability to inhibit the attachment of bacteria to the intestinal wall. It is thought that the antiviral action of lactoferrin may be due to its inhibition of virus-cell fusion and viral entry into cells.
Beta-glucan has numerous benefits. The cell walls of Bakers yeast contain some of the richest concentrated sources of beta-glucans found. Dee Cee's beta-glucan is obtained from the cell walls of Bakers yeast. There are many uses for beta-glucan as dietary supplements; including a possible benefit in wound healing and some research shows the ability to lower cholesterol levels and possibly even combating cancer. There are numerous scientific research studies about beta-glucans, however, clinical trials only confirm a few uses it. These studies show that there is a possibility that beta glucans can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels. At this time there is limited evidence that beta-glucans taken as a supplement can have this cholesterol lowering effect. Beta-glucans have also been shown to enhance the ability of the immune system to fight infection.This occurs because beta-glucans can activate the white blood cells called macrophages. The macrophages are produced by the bone marrow. They circulate in the blood engulfing and destroying foreign invaders such as bacteria and fungi. Some clinical trials have shown that beta-glucans can protect against cancerand the development of tumors. In one laboratory study, antibody medications were more effective in killing cancer cells when they were given in conjunction with beta-glucans.
