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.

  • Has done the trick!

    star

    I bought this for my son in order to help his immunity over the winter. he has asthma and constant hey fever which is draining him. I came to this product after reading up about colostrum and the benefits to the immune system. My son is able to breath better and is sleeping much better. The hay fever and asthma haven't gone completely(not that I thought they would) however this has made a noticeable difference to his breathing - thoroughly recommend it!
