A baby’s immune system is not yet fully developed even as they exit the womb and enter a world full of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. Fortunately, in the first few days after birth, a mother’s breastmilk supplies colostrum to help jump start the immune system. As children grow and continue to be exposed to pathogens and other immune challenges, the immune system learns and grows stronger, providing protection into adulthood.
To help a child develop a robust immune system, let kids be kids. Allowing children to be exposed to dirt, pets, and other kids will help their immune system grow stronger. Additionally, including supplemental bovine colostrum throughout childhood and adulthood provides the body with immune boosting components. It helps to protect against respiratory infections, reduces the likelihood of developing allergies, and supports overall immune system growth.
