In brief: Immune support

Bovine colostrum is the forst milk form lactating cows.
..And like humans it is rich in antibodies and growth factors that support the immune system. Supposedly the immune support is extracted so it is dairy free. Many people/children have had positiver benefits from it especially with intestinal issues.

In brief: Colostrum

Colostrum is the liquid produced in the first 1-5 days after the birth of the baby.
It is filled with antibodies and nutrients which help the baby and it's immune system to help fight disease. Hope this helps.

There is no known benefit of cow colostrum for humans thus I do not recommend it. In theory it would boost your immune system but in reality we are too different from cows for us to benefit.
