Immune Health Nutrition


by Jon David Miller, holistic natural health educator & author

Colostrum is the first serving of breast fluid produced by a mother mammal for her newborn in the first two days after birth. It contains special antibodies and nutrients that initialize the infant's immune system for its natural functions of controlling the levels of microorganisms in the body.

Newborn infants are potentially vulnerable to the millions of microorganisms active in our environment both inside and outside the body. Without colostrum's natural immune support, infants would be much more susceptible to harm from these agents.

Colostrum contains vital immunoglobulins, messenger proteins used by the immune system. 

Supplementing the diet with properly prepared colostrum of high quality has helped people with immune health challenges and various other states of illness.

First milking colostrum has been scientifically proven to be the most complete whole food, containing all the necessary vitamins, essential fatty acids, glyconutrients, minerals, amino acids, growth and immune nutrition factors.

Some of the components of colostrum are "species specific", and only lend their benefits to offspring of the mother's species. Fortunately, many immune-system messengers found in colostrum will transfer their benefits to mammals of another species.

These vital immunity boosters are known as "transfer factors". These teach the immune system to identify infectious agents that have not previously been introduced, preparing it to control these so one is not overwhelmed with them to the point of illness.

The transfer factors in colostrum: 1) activate the immune system, priming it to respond when our health is in jeopardy; 2) create additional "memory molecules" which build our potential for immune reaction to attacks from unfriendly microorganisms; and 3) suppress overactive immune functions that cause autoimmune diseases.

Colostrum is nature's perfectly formed natural process for balancing the infant's body. It can help us at any age with rejuvenation, regeneration and immune system enhancement and regulation.

With all of the essential basic components of a healthy biological system, including immune factors, metabolic agents and anti-aging compounds in their whole food forms, this first food gives us what we need -- health, vitality and youthfulness.

Colostrum has been used successfully to help control: viral infection, bacterial infection, yeast and fungus, parasites, autoimmune challenges, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and cancer.

Colostrum does not contain milk proteins or lactose, and does not cause allergic reactions in most humans.

Colostrum is the only science-certified whole food of its kind that benefits your body with powerful dietary supplementation providing three focused functionalities:

•Immune System Support

•Weight Management

•Anti-aging Assistance

Colostrum has been used successfully for centuries to provide powerful natural support against age-related dysfunctions. These anti-aging factors support your body to carry on its own natural process of cell regeneration.

25,000 published scientific papers attest to the power of colostrum to benefit the immune system. This whole food provides the support your body needs with an increasingly polluted and toxic environment stressing our immune health.

Natural health practitioners have recommended colostrum for many years.

1940's - Colostrum used for rheumatoid arthritis and other ailments.

1950's - Antibodies from colostrum used against polio.

1970's - Immunoglobulins as found in colostrum used to combat viral, bacterial and yeast infections.

1980's - Colostrum components used for autoimmune situations.

1990's - Colostrum found to inhibit the bacteria that causes stomach ulcers.

2000's - IgF-1 and other natural growth factors used for anti-aging as well as enhanced immune response.

NOTE: Nature's Sunshine has colostrum alone, or colostrum with other immune factors:




•Accelerates healing.

•Supports the immune system.

•Increases the metabolism of fat.

How It Works:

Colostrum is a super-nutritional substance secreted by the mammary glands of nursing mammals. It contains immunoglobulins and broad-based immune enhancers. Colostrum regenerates and accelerates the normal growth of aged muscle, bone, cartilage and skin collagen, and supports growth and repair of gastrointestinal tissues and nervous tissue.


Colostrum from milk.

Recommended Use:

Take 1 capsule four times daily one hour before meals and at bedtime with 8 oz. water.

Colostrum with Immune Factors


•Stimulates cytokines, key immunological factors

•Protects the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract

•Promotes normal bowel function

•Maintains the intestinal lining

How It Works:

Colostrum is the foremilk produced by mammals before the onset of lactation. It contains 25 percent immunoglobulins (high-level IgG) and is rich in immune-protecting factors. These factors are known to stimulate cytokines and strengthen the intestinal lining. Studies show that colostrum is not only of great importance in supporting the immune system of the newborn, but it can also maintain the health of children and adults.

Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) is a low-molecular weight carbohydrate that occurs naturally in humans. It has immunostimulatory actions and may help the body maintain blood lipid levels and fat levels within the liver that are already within the normal ranges. Maitake mushroom contains the polysaccharide beta-glucan. Studies have shown this mushroom to exhibit immunostimulatory properties in its ability to activate natural killer cells, macrophages, interleukin-1 and cytotoxic T-cells. Shiitake mushroom contains both high-molecular and low-molecular-weight polysaccharides, including lentinan, which stimulates macrophages. Astragalus offers immunostimulatory benefits. The astragalisodes it provides boost the immune system by enhancing the production of immunoglobulin and stimulating macrophages.


Colostrum from milk, astragalus root, IP-6 (inositol), maitake whole mushroom and shiitake mushroom mycelium.

Recommended Use:

Take 1 capsule with a meal three times daily.
