Bovine colostrum is a milky fluid that is produced by cows in the first few days after giving birth. It is rich in nutrients and bioactive compounds that are important for the growth and development of newborn calves. Bovine colostrum is also used as a nutritional supplement for humans, particularly in the form of protein powder.

Bovine colostrum contains a range of nutrients, including protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. It is particularly rich in immunoglobulins, which are antibodies that help to support the immune system. Bovine colostrum is also a source of growth factors, such as insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which help to promote tissue growth and repair.

In terms of safety, bovine colostrum is generally considered safe for most people when taken in appropriate doses.
