Studies of colostrum’s benefits are not new. Western scientists began studying this substance in the late 18th century; initially, to document its benefits for survival, growth and development of newborns. In 1950, Dr. Albert Sabin, developer of the polio vaccine, discovered that colostrum contained antibodies that had the potential to lower risk of developing polio and he recommended it for children who were susceptible to the disease. In the early 1950s, it often was prescribed in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Today, the numerous medical studies on this substance have focused primarily on its immunity-boosting properties.

Some of the main health benefits of colostrums:
