According to a recent market study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global cow colostrum market is projected to display a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period from 2021 – 3031. According to a field survey conducted by ColoPlus AB, the use of colostrum in medical nutritional food boosts the immune system of children diagnosed with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS), as well as lowers the risk of diarrhea and immune deficiency-related diseases.
In terms of improving immune response, the consumption of important nutrients and supplements, is key especially for pregnant women and patients with ailments such as diabetes. These nutrition-packed foods are available through prescriptions from doctors, physicians, and health professionals.
IgM (Immunoglobulin-M), IgA (Immunoglobulin-A), and IgG (Immunoglobulin-G) are prominent immunoglobulins found in colostrum, with Immunoglobulin-G being the most common variant that breaks down or eliminates infections in the bloodstream. The level of IgG in cow colostrum is around 20% higher than that of human colostrum.
The nutritional profile of cow colostrum qualifies it as an “Ancient Food for Modern Times,” and it is thus categorized as a nutraceutical. Local immunity, athletic performance, permeability, mucosal integrity, systemic immunity, and antigen processing are just a few of the applications for colostrum.
Supplements with cow colostrum can help with autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Due to the inclusion of growth factors, it has potential as an immune modulator for growth supplements aimed towards children.
Immunoglobulin-G offers passive immunity to the human body, protecting it from viral and bacterial infections and illnesses. Over the projected period, this is expected to drive the worldwide cow colostrum market.
