The Benefits of Colostrum, an Overview

Colostrum was your first meal, and the first meal of all mammals. It is an elixir of healthful components that comes to the mammary glands before milk does. Any attempt to describe the benefits of colostrum will leave out much more than it encompasses. This is primarily for two reasons, one, that the known benefits are many and complex, covering in one way or another pretty much every aspect of health, and two, colostrum itself is magnificently complex, with hundreds of healthful components that work together with each other to promote good health in ways that only God and nature fully understand.

Colostrum may be the most highly researched supplement on the planet. Type in the word colostrum at and you will see more than 7,000 studies. Likely, less is known about the health benefits of colostrum than is still unknown, but fortunately all we really need to know about colostrum is that it comprehensively promotes good health and has no known side effects or contraindications with any medication. In his book, “Colostrum, A Journey Toward Better Health and Brighter Tomorrows”, Robert K. York, M.D., describes how fibromyalgia rendered him incapable of continuing his medical practice, how he found no help in traditional medical treatments for the disease, did research on his own, discovered colostrum, and through it got his life back. In his book Dr. York wrote, “Colostrum is the only single supplement I know that has the capacity to increase energy, reduce fatigue and boost the immune system. Colostrum promotes wound healing and tissue repair by stimulating growth and regeneration of muscle, bone, nerve and cartilage. It facilitates the long term management of chronic illnesses such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. It also has the capacity to reduce pain associated with these illnesses. It has also been shown to be effective against certain types of bacteria, virus, yeast and fungus.”
