To see the healing power of colostrum in action put a few drops of dissolved colostrum on a fresh skin injury. The bleeding and pain will stop and you will see a surprising amount of healing take place literally as you watch. As part of nature’s design to ensure the survival and strength of the newborn, colostrum contains components that work to quickly heal whatever internal tissue damage may be caused by the trauma of birthing, stop bleeding, and ease pain. Many times customers have told us that their surgeon was surprised about how fast they healed after surgery. One customer said his surgeon told him he healed twice as fast as normal. Another customer said his surgeon asked him more than once how he healed so fast. For healing after surgery we are of course talking about taking colostrum internally by mouth. It is not advisable to use colostrum topically on a surgical incision.
