- IgG Protect: IgG protect comes from purified bovine colostrum and in 2 separate trials, it proved to be 3 times more effective than the flu vaccine. Traditionally, colostrum is considered the “first food” of newborns because it is easily digestible and enhances the immune system. More recently, colostrum has been shown to regulate the immune system and provide vital growth and healing factors. An optimally functioning immune system prevents unwanted toxins and molecules from disturbing the body’s natural homeostasis. Colostrum naturally includes immune factors, amino acids, nucleotides and growth factors which provide several benefits to human immune health by functioning against microorganisms. There are five main immunoglobulins, but the most common is IgG, which accounts for 75-80% of all serum antibodies in the body. IgG plays a major role in immune system function, as it defends the body against foreign substances. 2 capsules per day.
