The tegricel colustrum found in Colostrum for Pets provides a perfect combination of immune and growth factors including immunoglobulins, lactoferrin and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), amino acids and other important nutrients. Immunoglobulins (A, D, E, G, and M) are the most abundant of the immune factors found in colostrum. IgG neutralizes toxins and microbes in the lymph and circulatory system. IgM destroys bacteria, while IgE and IgD are highly antiviral.
Lactoferrin is an antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, iron-binding protein with therapeutic effects in cancer, HIV, cytomegalo-virus, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, Candida albicans and other infections. Lactoferrin helps deprive bacteria of the iron they require to reproduce, and it also releases iron into the red blood cells, enhancing oxygenation of tissues. Lactoferrin modulates cytokine release, and its receptors have been found on most immune cells, including lymphocytes, monocytcs, macrophages, and platelets.
Proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) is a hormone that regulates the thymus gland, and helps to stimulate a weak immune system. It can also be helpful for autoimmune conditions such as allergies and Multiple Sclerosis.
Growth Factors include epithelial growth factor (EgF), insulin-like growth factor-I and II (IGF-1 and IGF-II), fibroblast growth tactor (FgF), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factors A & B (TgA and B), and growth hormones (GH).
If your pet has been diagnosed with giardia, hookworms, parasites or roundworms, it would be a good idea to use Colostrum for Pets along with the Power Probiotic to help support your pet's intestinal tract and prevent reinfection. Many cats and dogs that have had giardia, can get repeat infections or have a hard time fighting off reinfection. Using these two products helps your pet's immune system and restores the natural balance in the intestines.Note: If your pet is especially allergic or has a known food allergy to dairy products, Colostrum is not recommended. Use Notatum and Quentans.
