Colostrum is the most regenerative whole food that nature creates. Loaded with growth factors, the main role is to generate a healthy gut lining in the baby to prevent food allergies and to allow proper nutrient digestion. This enables the baby to fully nourish itself by absorbing nutrients while eliminating food born toxins through the digestive system.

Our Bovine Colostrum powder contains a minimum of 40% immunoglobulins (in proteins) and is collected within 6 hours of calving from Polish, grass-fed pesticide-free cows. The colostrum undergoes low-temperature processing along with testing to ensure that the different colostrum immunoglobulin fractions retain their biological activity and are not denatured. Even though our colostrum is skimmed to increase the relative IgG concentration, it has a rich and creamy texture.

Bovine Colostrum – less than 6hr harvested, grass fed, pesticide-free cows

Though the original role of the growth factors is digestive health, colostrum contains a whole slew of growth factors that survive digestion to regenerate muscle tissue, bone tissue, nerves (brain), skin and vital organs. The highest quality colostrum supplements should contain 87 different growth factors, each responsible for generating a certain tissue of the mammalian body.

If these effects of colostrum sound profound, well they are. In fact if a calf does not get colostrum from its mother at birth, it will die of immune deficiency due to leaky gut and bacterial infection.

So bovine colostrum performs this magic when fed to baby cows, but what about adult humans? Adult humans with their powerful digestive systems, in theory, should maintain their immune systems well, unfortunately, many of us develop leaky gut, SIBO , bacterial infections, autoimmune issues and so can benefit greatly from the help from our bovine ally who has gut healing off to a fine art and whose environment is more protected from chemicals toxins which humans are exposed to.

Immunoglobulins are well-known parts of the immune system, and they constitute an important part of the adaptive immune system as they neutralise enteric pathogens, such as bacteria, microbes and viruses (Janeway, 2001). The immunoglobulins in bovine colostrum come in five different varieties called isotypes:

IgA protects the intestinal epithelium from enteric pathogens and toxins, and is found in the mucosa in the gastrointestinal, respiratory and urogenital tracts, as well as in saliva and breast milk (Underdown & Schiff, 1986; Mantis et al., 2011).
IgD can activate specific types of white blood cells to produce antimicrobial factors and is found in the blood serum (Chen et al., 2009).
IgE is involved in allergies, as it binds to allergens and triggers release of histamine from specific white blood cells, but can also protect against enteric pathogens, such as parasitic worms. It is found in the blood serum (Pier et al., 2005).
IgG comes in four forms, and is the most common immunoglobulin found in the circulation. It is the main component is the immunity against invading enteric pathogens (Pier et al., 2005).
IgM is involved in eliminating enteric pathogens until sufficient amounts of IgG is present (Pier et al., 2005).

Additionally, Bovine colostrum contains 4x more of these immune factors than human breast milk.

Bovine Colostrum  also contains proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs), a special class of polypeptides shown to have immune-modulating and gastrointestinal health-promoting properties.*

In studies though, the immunoglobulins and growth factors survive even adult human digestion. Why? Well bovine colostrum contains trypsin inhibitors, which temporarily shut down the enzyme that would break down the immune and growth factors, allowing adults to fully reap the immune and regenerative benefits. This is part of what makes colostrum the most intelligent food on Earth.

Aside from its immune-transferring and tissue regenerating effects, colostrum is also an unparalleled nutritive. Colostrum contains every essential amino acid, every essential fatty acid and finally every essential glyconutrient (carbohydrate). If you did not know, there are many different essential sugars that, in trace amounts, optimise immune system function. This makes colostrum the one food that you would choose to bring with you to a deserted island.

The lactoferrin contained in Bovine Colostrum  is an important iron-binding glycoprotein found naturally in the body that supports immune function and promotes the growth of the good bacteria.*

Bovine Colostrum is from cows raised without the use of hormone rBGH, antibiotics or pesticides in their feed.

Healing the Gut and immune System with Bovine Colostrum

Colostrum, aka “pre-milk”, is produced by all mammals (including humans) during late pregnancy for their newborn to drink in the first few days of life, just before the breast milk comes in. The purpose of colostrum is to act as a form of passive immunity and provide a high dose of anti-bodies, such as IgA, IgG and IgM, which help to build the newborn’s immunity. It also contains antimicrobials and several growth factors.

When a newborn calf comes into this world, they have holes in their gut to allow for the colostrum and the large proteins (anti-bodies) to easily pass through the intestinal wall and enter the blood stream to make it’s way around the body.

Growth factors (such as epithelial and epidermal) stimulate the gut to develop and essentially patch up the holes within the first 2-3 days of birth. Really think about how incredible that process is. Then consider what a colostrum supplement could do for your damaged gut.

Bovine Colostrum and Cancer
Various growth factors are produced in the gut, including epidermal growth factor, transforming growth factor-alpha, transforming growth factor-beta, amphiregulin, betacellulin, and heparin-binding EGF-like peptide. These factors are also present in colostrum. EGF promotes repair of the mucosal lining of the gut. Transforming growth factor-alpha plays a role in mucosal healing. Transforming growth factor-beta inhibits cell proliferation and promotes cell differentiation. (Nutrition, 1998)

There have been concerns that Colostrum’s IGF-1 growth factors might increase cancer cell production, however, what is most important is the IGF binding proteins(IGFBP 1 to 6), because these attach to IGF-1 and inhibit it’s action of attaching to the IGF cell receptors. IGFBP’s are also found to increase in dis-eased states making more of them available for binding to newly introduced IGF-1 from Colostrum, thereby nullifying the risk.

A study in 2008 involving 375 participants showed “an unexpected null association, or even a reduction in risk, with not just high IGFBP-3 concentration but also with high levels of IGF-I. Adjusting the IGF-I and IGFBP-3 results to take into account relative concentrations of each with respect to the other did not change these findings” see pubmed/PMC2597396

Suggested Usage
It is very important to take Colostrum on an empty stomach with lots of water to aid its transit into the upper intestine. Colostrum has no ‘known’ contraindications of any sort and with a 98.9% uptake into the body it is used to its fullest capacity within the body and body systems. Colostrum has a half-life of 6-8 hours, so for maximum benefit it is important to take it three times a day. Bovine colostrum may also be taken sublingually by holding some powder mixed with saliva behind the lower teeth.

Clinical Studies


“Immunoglobulin from bovine colostrum effectively reduces and prevents viral and bacterial infections in immune deficient subjects: bone marrow recipients, premature babies, AIDS, etc”. New England Journal of Medicine.

“Colostrum and breast milk (from cows and humans) stimulates the newborn’s immune system; as yet, unidentified proteins speed the maturation of cultured B Lymphocytes (type of white blood cell) and primes them for production of antibodies”. Dr. Michael Julius Of McGill University, Montreal,  Canada  Science News

Glycoproteins, in bovine colostrum, inhibit the attachment of the Helicobactor Pylori bacteria that cause stomach ulcers. Colostrum contains significant amounts of Interlukin-10 (a strong inflammation inhibitory agent), found significant in reducing inflammation in arthritic joints and injury areas. Dr. Olle Hernell, At the University of Ulmea, Sweden; Science

Immunoglobulin in colostrum has been used to successfully treat: Thrombocytopenia, Anemia, Neutropenia, Myasthenia Gravis, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Systemic Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bulluos Pamphigoid, Kawasaki’s Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Crohn’s disease, among others. Dr. Dwyer; New England Journal of Medicine

Colostrum is “Nature’s Healing Miracle”, according to prominent medical doctor Donald Henderson. Medical Research shows that Colostrum is possibly the one supplement that can help everyone that’s ill. And, it’s the most important preventative supplement you’ll ever find.

Colostrum has a virus antibody that acts against viral invaders. A wide range of antiviral factors were acknowledged to be present in colostrum. This research was done at the US Government’s Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia.  Dr. E.L. Palmer, et. al.; Journal of Medical Virology

Colostrum contains Non Specific Inhibitors that inhibit a wide range of respiratory illness, notably Influenza viruses. Colostrum is specifically cited for its unique effectiveness against potentially deadly outbreaks of Asian Flu viruses that emerge from animal/human mutations. Drs. Shortridge,; Journal of Tropical Pediatrics

Human clinical study: Immune factors in cow colostrum, when taken orally, are effective against disease-causing organisms in the intestinal tract. Ingestion of bovine colostrum’s immunoglobulins may be a new method of providing passive immunoprotection against a host of gut-associated disease causing antigens (viral and bacterial). Dr. R. McClead, et. al.; Pediatrics Research

Studies with human volunteers found that the preservation of the biological activity of IgG (Immunoglobulin), in the digestive secretions of adults receiving bovine colostrum orally, indicates passive enteral (intestinal) immunization for the prevention and treatment of acute intestinal diseases. Dr. L.B. Khazenson; Microbial & Epidemial Immunobiology

Colostrum stimulates the lymphoid tissue providing benefits in aged or immunodeficient people. Nature has used the oral route for the development of the immune system since the origin of mammals (safe and effective). Oral administration of immunofactors is simple, inexpensive, free of side effects and may be vastly beneficial in veterinary and HUMAN medicine, to correct immunodeficiency. Drs. Bocci, Bremen, Corradeschi, Luzzi and Paulesu; Journal Biology

Researchers reported that colostrum stimulates maturation of B Lymphocytes (type of white blood cell) and primes them for production of antibodies, enhances growth and differentiation of white blood cells. Similar activity in cow and human colostrum can also activate Macrophages. Dr. M. Julius, McGill University, Montreal: Science News

Immunoglobulin in colostrum has been used to successfully treat: Thrombocytopenia, Anemia, Neutropenia, Myasthenia Gravis, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Systemic Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bulluos Pamphigoid, Kawasaki’s Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Crohn’s disease, among others. Dr. Dwyer; New England Journal of Medicine

PRP, in bovine colostrum, has the same ability to regulate activity of the immune system as hormones of the Thymus gland. It activates an underactive immune system, helping it move into action against disease-causing organisms. PRP also suppresses an overactive immune system, such as is often seen in the autoimmune diseases. PRP is highly anti-inflammatory and also appears to act on T-cell precursors to produce helper T-cells and suppresser T-cells. Drs. Staroscik, et. al., Molecular Immunology

PRP was found not to be species specific (transferable for human use). Turns white blood cells into functionally active T cells. Results were shown in treatment of auto-immune disorders and cancer. An important Immune modulator stimulates an underactive immune system and tones down an overactive one. Drs. Janusz & Lisowski; Archives of Immunology

Bovine Colostrum contains TgF-B which has an important suppressive effect on cytoxic substances (anti-inflammatory). Inhibits cell growth of human Osteosarcoma (cancer) cells (75% inhibition). Mediator of fibrosis and angiogenesis (healing of heart muscle and blood vessels), ( Roberts et al., 1986), accelerates wound healing (Sporn et al.., 1983) and bone formation (Centrella et al., 1987). Drs. Tokuyama and Tokuyama; Cancer Research Inst. Kanazawa Univ. Japan

Only Retinoic acids, found in colostrum, conferred protection and reduced colonization of the Herpes Virus. Although not a cure, Retinoic acids effectively reduce the Herpes Virus to levels (1/100 to 1/10,000 viruses remained active after treatment) where the body’s immune system could fight off an outbreak. Drs. Charles Isaacs, et. al.; Experimental Biology; Science

Growth factors in bovine colostrum were found to be very effective in promoting wound healing. Recommended for trauma and surgical healing. External and internal applications. Drs. Sporn, et. al.; Science

IGF-1, found in colostrum, stimulates bone and muscle growth and nerve regeneration. Also found: topical administration to wounds resulted in more effective healing.
Drs. Skottner, Arrhenius-Nyberg, Kanje and Fryklund, Acta. Paediatric Scandinavia, Sweden

High age is associated with reduced levels of growth hormones: GH and IgF-1. Induction of GH and IgF-1 increase body weight through muscle growth of aged subjects. Drs. Ullman, Sommerland & Skottner, Dept. of Pathology and Pharmacology, Univ. of Gothenburg, Sahlgren Hospital & HabiVitrum AB, Stockholm, Sweden
