About Firstmil Premium
From old days in Japan, we used to say that the breastfed-babies are healthy and strong. Because high concentrations of immune factors, such as IgG antibodies contained in mother’s milk help the baby’s immunity, and acquire resistance to infection from outside.
“Firstmil Premium” is IgG containing whey protein supplement with equivalent effect to the milk Mother-to-child immunity, generated from 100% raw milk. It can be stably supplied and reasonably priced due to a stable supply of raw milk.
100% derived from New Zealand raw milk
Under New Zealand’s stringent management standards, all of nature’s daily farmers are breeding healthy milk cows. By a strict quarantine system, there is no case of BSE in the countries. Firstmil Premium is manufactured by raw milk from healthy and stress-free New Zealand milk cows.
This product contains IgG > 200mg/g, s-IgA > 15mg/g and lactoferrin > 5mg/g. These ingredients play an important role to maintain our immunity.
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) contained more than 20% in “Firstmill Premium” is the mammal’s main antibody to fight against pathogens.
Approximately 100 billion bacteria live in the human intestine, well-balanced and help each other, creating ecosystems such as the microcosm “intestinal flora”
In the past research, the intestinal flora is already known to influence our health such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, allergies, skin wrinkles and even character. IgG binds with various bad bacteria in the intestinal and maintain the good intestinal environment.
So-called “antibody” has images of weapons, like IgG antibodies fighting pathogens. However secretory IgA (s-IgA) is said that not only eliminates bad bacteria, but also protects useful bacteria. s-IgA is a dimeric form of IgA, which is prevalent in the mucus.
Humans are born without intestinal bacteria. First inheriting the bacteria from the mother, and then through various influence, we gradually forge well-balanced intestinal flora. It is not easy for bacteria to settle in the intestines because of flow. The only place that does not to wash away in the intestines is the mucus layer covering the walls of the intestines. It is the perfect place to live for bacteria, although they can’t get in there easily because of stickiness.
This is the place only the bacteria chosen by s-IgA can live. s-IgA sticks to the body of selected bacteria and reduces the resistance of them to get into the mucus layer. Through the long process of evolution of our ancestors and bacteria they have developed a method of how to support each other and gradually decided what kind of bacteria is chosen by s-IgA. s-IgA plays big role selecting the intestinal bacteria.
Lactoferrin is also known as an important nutrient to protect babies. It is a useful nutrient to maintain our immunity as well.
When these three constituents work together, “Firstmill Premium” demonstrate various effects.
Reseach and uses
NZ’s University of Otago showed that 19 species of pathogens are prevented by IgG antibodies in the milk, as shown inthis table.
|1. Bacillus cereus||11. Salmonella typhimurium|
|2. Campylobacter jejuni||12. Staphylococcus epidermidis|
|3. Candida albicans||13. Streptococcus agalactiae|
|4. Escherichia coli||14. Streptococcus mutans|
|5. Escherichia coli 0157:H7||15. Streptococcus pneumoniae|
|6. Helicobacter pylori||16. Streptococcus pyogenes|
|7. Klebsiella pneumoniae||17. Yersinia enterocolitica|
|8. Listeria monocytogenes||18. Haemophilus influenzae|
|9. Propionibacterium acnes||19. Stahylococcus aureus|
|10. Salmonella enteritidis|
Also Japan’s international Medical Centre Institute of infectious tropical disease research director, Dr. Teruo Kirikae indicated that Firstmil has a protective effect of salmonella in mice.
The preventive effect of Firstmill Premium against pneumonia which is now Japans 3rd highest cause of death, O-157 and Atypical Mycobacterial Infection which is increasing year by year, are under in vivo research by Professor of Juntendo University.
“Firstmill Premium” increases the immunity of the body, this helps to preventing opportunistic infections especially for small children and the elderly. Because of high quality source of protein, it also helps to maintain muscle which may contribute to preventing sarcopenia as well.
This product is in high demand in an aging society which many countries are facing in these days.
