ARMRA Colostrum is a whole superfood, not a list of ingredient additives - so there is only 1 ingredient: pure, grass fed bovine colostrum.
ARMRA Colostrum contains no fat and no casein, the most common dairy allergen, and includes higher concentrations of the bioactives essential for human health, like antibodies and peptides.
Our patent-pending formulation and gentle, low heat extraction technology ensure that the over 200+ functional, bioactive nutrients retain their natural structure and integrity for optimal effect. These bioactive compounds include strengthening peptides, protective antibodies, antimicrobial peptides, prebiotic compounds, amino acids, vitamins, trace minerals, immunoglobulins, tissue growth factors and antioxidants that confer complete immune support and whole health benefits.
ARMRA contains potent levels of beneficial compounds, such as:
SigA (aka secretory immunoglobulin A) is the most abundant antibody at mucosal surfaces in the respiratory and GI tract, and plays a crucial role in immunity. It is considered “anti-viral” and “anti-bacterial” because it binds and neutralizes viruses and bacteria, preventing them from reaching the barrier surface. It also intercepts allergens and toxins.
In research studies, SigA has been found to inhibit the assembly of flu virus and rotavirus, and it neutralizes toxins from C. diff and E. Coli.
Additionally SigA plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis of the microbiome.
Immunoglobulins like IgG play an important role as antibodies along the mucosal surfaces. They can recognize and block specific, dangerous particles like viruses, bacteria, and toxins to block them from crossing the barrier.
Lactoferrin acts as a non-specific, first line of defense against disease causing particles through several mechanisms. It can directly bind particles and destroy them, bind and intercept them, recruit other immune cells when a threat is perceived, and also induce an anti-inflammatory effect. In research, lactoferrin has been found to have a strong anti-viral effect against the influenza virus. Lactoferrin also strengthens barrier integrity.
Milk oligosaccharides are a unique, whole food prebiotic that can't be found anywhere other than in colostrum. Structurally, they are short chains of sugar that pass undigested through the GI tract. They are the most complete form of prebiotics and reach the large intestine where they serve strictly as a food source for bacteria and feed the whole body microbiome. Unlike other prebiotics, milk oligosaccharides have been shown to preferentially feed the bifido- species, increasing counts of strictly the helpful populations of the bacteria in the microbiome. Milk oligosaccharides also replenish the protective layer of mucous to maintain homeostasis and protection at the mucosal barriers.
