Chevin nutritionist Ke Qi:

Children are very susceptible to getting sick especially during the age gap between 6 months to 3 years old. This is mainly due to the weaning stage where the infant’s IgG antibodies started decline quickly after age of 6 months old which led to the increase in the rate of sickness and concerned a lot of parents. Thus, this period from 6 months to 3 years old has been called "immune gap period", where the child's immune system is weakened. Before 8 years old, children’s immune system is not fully developed, therefore, children under 8 years old get sick easily. After 8 years old, even as the immune systems start to mature, is at risk from many pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. Hence, taking care of children’s health is very important since young, With the rich nutrients presence in cow colostrum, not only it could replenish the IgG, it could also take care of children’s gut health, growth and most importantly their immunity.
