Hyperimmune Milk

As A Vaccine

We hear public health experts say it is imperative for everyone to be vaccinated. There are, however, documented case of an irreversible harm. We have seen the febrile seizures that occur in about one in every 3,000 children. A parent should be aware of those and of options.

Cows, it turns out, are living breathing grass-grazing factories for producing antibodies and peptides that, when consumed via their colostrum, teach the human body’s immune system to identify and subdue a whole host of deadly pathogens—including ones we’re dealing with right now like measles.

Colostrum is the first milky fluid mammals secrete upon the birth of their newborns. It is filled with growth and immune factors that the newborn needs to survive and thrive. And now it’s being studied for its safe vaccination prospects.

vaccine of the future

As it turns out, researchers have created special forms of this first milk, called hyperimmune colostrum, by inoculating cows during their pregnancy with bacteria and viruses that affect humans. The cow in turn makes antibodies to them and secretes those antibodies into its colostrum. “Hyperimmune colostrum has shown considerable promise as an infection-fighting agent,” says New York University’s Langone Medical Center.

Hyperimmune colostrum contains immunoglobulins (Igs) with disease-specific and immune-stimulating, antiinfective activities.

Already, hyperimmune colostrums are being studied as vaccinations against cryptosporidia, Helicobacter pylori, measles, rotavirus and shigella and “appear to have clinical utility in conditions associated with these infectious organisms.”

anti-polio milk

As early as 1962, Dr Albert Sabin, developer of the oral polio vaccine, reported in Pediatrics that colostrum could neutralize the crippling virus. “The regular milk of 6 of 20 cows neutralized at least 100 LD50 of virus on one or more occasions, but the antepartum or early postpartum colostrum, or both, of 16 cows all neutralized the virus,” he reported.

anti-flu vaccination

Much of the work on hyperimmune colostrum occurs outside of the US. At G. d’annunzio University, ChietiPescara, Italy, researchers report colostrum works better than vaccinations. The efficacy of a two-month treatment with oral colostrum in the prevention of flu episodes was compared with anti-influenza vaccination. Colostrum in healthy and high-risk heart patients “is at least 3 times more effective than vaccination to prevent flu and is very cost-effective.”

ost-effective.” In her doctoral thesis, Susanna Rokka of MTT Agrifood Research Finland found specially produced bovine hyperimmune to put out infections in the gastrointestinal tract including gastritis, dental caries, E. coli and Helicobacter pylori, which causes gastritis, gastric ulcer and stomach cancer. Colostrum eliminated E. coli bacteria in the bloodstream.

One of the most unusual uses of colostrum is with a type developed against the measles. The anti-measles hyperimmune colostrum, which is active against viruses, has shown promise against multiple sclerosis (MS).

The doctors who conducted the study said previous virological and immunological studies have suggested that MS is “triggered by a virus infection.” In order to inhibit the growth of measles virus in the patients, they obtained a cow colostrum containing anti-measles protein antibodies. This colostrum was orally administered to 15 patients with MS to investigate its effect on the course of the disease for 30 days. Similarly, measles-negative antibody control colostrum was orally administered to five patients. “These findings suggest the efficacy of orally administered anti-measles colostrum in improving the condition of MS patients.”

Of course, while hyperimmune colostrum remains a specialized aspect of production, using a colostrum powder daily in smoothies or in capsules supplies the body with growth and immune factors that can also restore immune systems. The colostrum richest in these nutrients is taken from the first six hours of the calves’ birth. This is the kind of colostrum that has the highest numbers of immunoglobulins that transfer their powers to the recipient.
