Within the substance, colostrum, are pieces of the health puzzle that are just beginning to surface. A little known piece, at least to the general public is a tiny amino-acid sequence commonly referred to as PRP’s or Proline-Rich Polypeptides.
There are dozens of studies published now about this little amino-acid and its ability to regulate or modulate the immune system. One of the latest studies, published in the July 2009 issue of the Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging (13;6:522-7), researchers established that it had previously been demonstrated that oral administration of proline-rich polypeptide isolated from colostrum “can effectively treat Alzheimer’s disease patients.”
We all have loved ones or know of someone whose memory just isn’t what it used to be and now there may just be hope in the battle against age-related deterioration of cognitive functionality. The hope comes in the form of life’s first food and all that is found within it; with over 700 different little helpers found in true colostrum, we have only begun to scratch the surface as to the reach of its benefits.
