The foremilk or first milk of female mammals is called colostrum.

Already before breast feeding the newborn with the actual mother’s milk, the mother produces a foremilk after giving birth. The so-called colostrum is produced in the first 36 hours by the mammary glands of the female mammal. This foremilk is particularly rich in nutrients (especially vitamins, minerals, and amino acids) and contains an extraordinary composition of growth factors and immunoglobulins (antibodies). Being a rich vital substance, this special milk is supposed to strengthen the suckling in an optimum way for the first weeks of its life.


Colostrum is a bovine derived food supplement which contains proteins, immunoglobulins (Ig), vitamins, amino acids and other growth factors (IGF-1 & 2).Bovine Colostrum is also rich in fat, sugar, proteins, micronutrients, antibodies, enzymes, amino acids and bioactive proteins which help growth and boost up the immune system. Various researches over the past several years have pointed out that Colostrum is the single most powerful immunity booster amongst the natural foods available to mankind.
