Alpha Lipid : Colostrum and Peptic Ulcer

Share it Please
Most ulcers are caused by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori. Many researchers have showed the benefits of bovine colostrum for ulcers caused by H.pylori. They show that bovine colostrum can block the binding of Helicobacter species to the lining of the stomach and intestinal tract therefore inhibit infection [1].

Researchers at the University of Texas-Houston Medical School also found antibiotic properties of bovine lactoferrin against H.pylori and stated that lactoferrin in colostrum should be futher investigated for possible use in human H. pylori infections and peptic ulcers [2].
