Colostrum the liquid gold of our ancestors
Colostrum, known to our ancestors as a sacred gift, has recently been studied by researchers who have discovered that the wisdom of our ancestors was correct. This complex substance is still being studied by scientists who are amazed at its intricate nature.
Colostrum or colostrum is milk that mammals produce during the first few days after giving birth. It is often called "first milk" because it is the first substance produced by the mammary glands after childbirth.
Colostrum is rich in nutrients and helps support and promote the growth and development of the newborn. In humans, colostrum is produced in the first few days after birth and then gradually replaced by mature milk.

Colostrum has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. In ancient Greek and Roman times, colostrum was used to treat various conditions, including wounds and infections. In traditional Chinese medicine, colostrum was believed to have overall body-boosting properties.
In Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, colostrum is considered a "rasayana," or a substance that promotes health and longevity. It is believed to have rejuvenating properties and is used to support overall health and well-being.
For centuries, our ancestors celebrated the birth of a calf by consuming colostrum, a tradition still practiced in some cultures. For example, Masai tribesmen in Kenya drink large amounts of bovine colostrum and cows are considered their most valuable possession.
Recently, farmers and scientists have rediscovered the power of colostrum, bringing this hidden treasure back to the modern world.
- Colostrum is rich in antibodies
- It contains growth factors
- It is a source of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that can support overall health and well-being.
- Fermenting colostrum into kefir increases its health benefits by retaining the nutrients and making them easier for the body to absorb.
- Encapsulating kefir-fermented colostrum can make it easier to consume.
- It contains antibodies, enzymes and other immune factors that can support the body.
- Fermenting colostrum into kefir can increase its effectiveness.
Kefir is a fermented milk product made by adding kefir grains to milk. The fermentation process produces lactic acid, which helps retain the nutrients in the colostrum and makes them easier for the body to absorb.
Fermenting colostrum into kefir and then encapsulating it makes it easy to take unlike powders or tablets. The capsules are easy to swallow and can be taken on the go, making them a convenient way to enjoy the benefits of colostrum.
Due to fermentation, lactose is only present in very small amounts in colostrum. The first 24 hours of colostrum production are the period when it contains the lowest amount of lactose. Most people with lactose intolerance can tolerate colostrum from grass-fed cows without experiencing side effects. In addition, regular use of colostrum can also have a beneficial effect on the intestines, which can reduce or eliminate lactose intolerance and other food allergies.
Our ancestors were aware of the benefits of bovine colostrum for people of all ages, including newborns. Modern research has now confirmed that bovine colostrum may even be more beneficial than human colostrum due to a difference in the placentas of humans and cows. The human placenta allows the passage of immunoglobulin G (IgG) from the mother to the fetus, building systemic immunity and allowing the newborn to defend itself against infection.
Colostrum is a source of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that can support overall health and well-being. Additionally, fermenting colostrum with kefir, as is done with Paleo Powders colostrum, can increase its health benefits and make it easier for the body to absorb. This is consistent with the principles of the paleo diet, which emphasizes whole, unprocessed foods and the use of natural fermentation techniques.
