Colostrum Info

Colostrum is the first milk produced by humans and other mammals to nourish their newborn offspring. It is rich in important immunity and growth factors and essential nutrients to provide the optimum life-enhancing boost for the infant.

Historically bovine colostrum has been used medicinally by humans for thousands of years. In India, Scandinavia and elsewhere it was favoured for its antibiotic and immune enhancing properties. A nutrient-dense source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and other factors, this substance has been the subject of much research, revealing an extensive list of health benefits for children and adults.

Colostrum Benefits

Colostrum’s primary role is immune supportive, with anti-microbial, anti-parasitic actions combined with a balancing action on the intestinal micro-flora.

It also improves absorption of nutrients at cellular level which increases function throughout the body. This contributes to reducing aging processes, maintaining a healthy weight, retaining skin tone and speeding up wound healing.

Other specific benefits indicated by research are improved athletic performance, better resistance to upper respiratory tract infections and repair of intestinal damage caused by NSAID-type anti-inflammatory drugs.

Colostrum Side Effects

Colostrum is considered a safe supplement when taken as directed, with no adverse effects. Bovine colostrum supplementation is not recommended for mothers during pregnancy and breastfeeding because there is not yet enough research on possible adverse effects, and there is the added safety factor of potential environmental contaminants from non-organic farming methods. For lactose intolerant people, some tolerance is usual before a reaction occurs.

  • Great for digestion

    I had been having long-standing trouble with digestion/ leaky gut and this has been incredibly helpful in getting me back to normal. Taken in conjunction with l-glutamine. I started feeling the effects after about 4-5 days. I will keep taking it for general health, although I I have switched to capsules as they are a bit easier to take. This powder tastes much like milk powder but it doesn't dissolve that well.
