Hi...An impaired intestinal barrier function is involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Several nutritional factors are supposed to be effective in IBD treatment but scientific data about the effects on the intestinal integrity remain scarce.

Bovine colostrum (BC) has a range of functional constituents including immunoglobulins, growth factors, and antimicrobial peptides. The potency of BC to improve infectious and inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases is well established. However, the underlying mechanisms beyond anti-inflammatory effects are not well understood.

Controlling clinical signs of inflammation and thereby improving the quality of patient’s life is the main goal of Crohn's disease treatment. Currently, the therapeutic end-point in the treatment is the remission of symptoms but emerging evidence indicates that sub-clinical mucosal inflammation and the intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that disrupt the barrier could lead to disease relapse. So in this scenario - BC has emerged as a promising tool.

There is definite evidence for colostrum as a prophylactic agent with properties that strengthen barrier function and favor epithelial restitution.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
