Colostrum and Cancer Treatment

Bovine colostrum and cancer treatment

What is the difference between bovine colostrum and human colostrum ?

Colostrum from cows is The milk that a cow produces in the early days after giving birth This milk is rich in substances that protect the newborn from infection, such as antibodies, growth factors and cytokines . increase in response to infection Humans also produce colostrum. The natural source of human colostrum is breast milk.

Medical research shows that At present, the severity and frequency of gastrointestinal disease in children has increased. Newborns who do not receive enough colostrum have a weaker immune system. and more easily infected with microbial diseases meanwhile Babies who are breastfed have a lower risk of gastrointestinal illnesses than babies who are fed formula or cow's milk. Colostrum is a natural miracle nutrient. and has been dubbed as "The Elixir of Life"

Colostrum and cancer treatment

According to WHO , cancer is a common disease that kills more than 9.6 million people worldwide. processes used to treat cancer Be it chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, they all have long-term side effects.

In addition, the cost of medicines and cancer treatment in hospitals is also very high. As a result, people want to find effective and affordable alternative treatments. Many researchers therefore turn their attention to the study and trial of the use of anti-cancer agents in medicine. One of them is to study the anticancer abilities of bovine colostrum in humans.

Bovine colostrum has been used to culture a variety of cancer cells. and found that lactoferin (Lactoferrin) , a substance found in bovine colostrum. Has the effect of inhibiting the growth of cancer cells

Cancer cell culture research has tested the cytotoxic activity of both natural and laboratory-produced antitumor drugs. From this study, it was found that Purified lactoferrin (2 mg/ml) was able to slow the growth of KYSE-30 esophageal cancer cells. The experiment was performed by adding 500 g/ml of lactoferrin to the tray. Cancer cells were cultured and allowed to grow continuously for 62 hours. As a result, lactoferrin resulted in an 80% reduction in the number of cultured KYSE-30 cancer cells.

Anticancer activity of lactoferrin, a compound in bovine colostrum It has been tested with a variety of cancer cell cultures, such as gastric cancer cells. esophageal cancer Colon cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, etc. These trials have had good results.

Properties of Lactoferrin and lactalbumin in cancer treatment

Lactoferrin is a type of glycoprotein with antioxidant properties. Anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and anti-microbial It is a substance found in bovine colostrum. Lactoferrin is an immune regulator that plays a very important role. It is also a substance that causes tissue regeneration. As well as stopping the production of cytokines (Cytokines) that command the body to respond to inflammation as well

Lactalbumin is another protein that stimulates the immune response. and helps in the production of glutathione (Glutathione) , an antioxidant that acts to eliminate toxins that enter the body

Both lactoferrin and lactalbumin were effective in causing the systemic death of mutant cells. or cancer cells Lactoferrin was found to increase the levels of caspase-1 and interleukin -18 (IL-18). In addition, lactoferrin induces apoptosis in cytotoxic-T cells and natural killer cells . that are responsible for destroying infected cells and suppresses the enzyme CYP1A2 in the liver, which often activates the action of carcinogens as well

Lactoferrin and lactalbumin are also used in combination with chemotherapy and radiotherapy to treat cancer. This is due to lactoferrin's ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. It is thus used as a carrier of chemotherapy drugs into the brain. This will not only improve the clinical outcomes of the chemotherapy process. But it also reduces the need for chemotherapy and radiation. which causes unwanted side effects that will occur with cancer patients are reduced as well

For this reason, the consumption of bovine colostrum, which is rich in lactoferrin and lactalbumin, in conjunction with cancer treatment has a very effective effect on the healing process. climb In addition to the effects that occur within the body. The use of colostrum-containing vaginal suppositories can also revert to normal cervical cells that have just begun to become abnormal and may turn into cancerous cells. Bovine sap extract can also greatly alleviate chronic pain and diabetic foot ulcers.
