immune factors work best if they are assisted in reaching the small intestine. Capsules, taken on an empty stomach and washed down with plenty of water, do exactly that.
Colostrum Plus also contains lactoferrin, a potent compound which helps increase iron bioavailability in the body. There are 19 identifiable titers of antibodies in colostrum as well as the immune factors that help support proper immune function.
- Support immune system function.
- Enhance skin and muscle rejuvenation.
- Increase strengh and stamina.
Suggested Usage: adult : take 2 cpasules twice daily on an empty stomach with 8 oz. of water, or open capsule and sprinkle over a small amount of food.
Additional Information about Colostrum:
What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced from the
mother's mammary glands during the first 72 hours after birth. It
provides life-supporting immune and growth factors that insure the
health and vitality of the newborn.
During the fifties and sixties, many doctors
recommended against breastfeeding. So many of us never got the
natural "seeding" -- the initial boost to our immune and
digestive systems -- which Colostrum provides. Plus, after puberty,
the amount of immune and growth factors present in our bodies begins
to decline. We become more vulnerable to disease, our energy level
and enthusiasm lessens, our skin loses its elasticity, and we gain
unwanted weight and lose muscle tone. We also live in a toxic
environment, with pollutants and allergens all around us.
Research has shown that Colostrum has powerful
natural immune and growth factors that bring the body to a state of
homeostasis -- its powerful, vital natural state of health and well
being. Colostrum helps support healthy immune function; it also
enables us to resist the harmful effects of pollutants, contaminants
and allergens where they attack us.
Plus, the growth factors in Colostrum create many of
the positive "side-effects" of a healthy organism -- an
enhanced ability to metabolize or "burn" fat, greater ease
in building lean muscle mass, and enhanced rejuvenation of skin and
What's Different About Symbiotics Colostrum?
Colostrum's effectiveness is reduced if it doesn't
meet Symbiotics Standards regarding component analysis and
protective processing. Excessive heat is
particularly bad. Symbiotics Colostrum is processed at low heat to
protect its potency.
Symbiotics Colostrum is the only colostrum clinically
proven to destroy a wide range of harmful pathogens.
Our original colostrum product, available in both
capsules and powder form, is collected only from pasture-fed cows
that are pesticide, antibiotic and rBST free. Our supplier, the New
Zealand Dairy Group, provides a healthy herd of more than
1.5 million cattle. This provides colostrum with significantly
enhanced efficacy, since naturally pasture-fed animals develop
immunity to a wider range of pathogens than those which are fed
processed feed. The huge herd also creates a high degree of
standardization. Symbiotics is the only U.S. distributor of bovine
colostrum able to make this superior quality colostrum for human
Common sense also suggests that nutrients are
difficult for humans to assimilate if they are not water-soluble.
Symbiotics has developed a unique, proprietary process for our
original colostrum to make it fully dispersible -- and provide
maximum health benefits.
Why is Colostrum Exceptional?
As we age, we notice it takes us a little longer to
fight off a cold or flu, we become more vulnerable to disease, our
energy and enthusiasm lessen, our skin loses its elasticity, we gain
unwanted weight and lose muscle tone. After maturity, we gradually
lose the immune and growth factors in our body. This impacts us to
search for anti-aging and health products and knowledge. We've
looked to plants and minerals for an answer, isolating and mega-dosing
on vitamins and minerals. Recently we've become more
aware, thanks to the media, about the dangers of this hit and miss
approach. With killer bugs at our doorstep, we need to look to what
was designed specifically for the survival of our species. Aging,
illness and death occur with the loss of immune and growth factors
in our bodies. Medical science has shown in many published reports
worldwide that these can possibly be replaced in the human
body....with bovine colostrum.
Bovine colostrum is not new. In India, for thousands
of years, Ayurvedic physicians and the spiritual leaders have
documented the physical and spiritual health benefits from
colostrum. It is dried and delivered by the milkman and is known for
its healing and therapeutic ability. Scandinavian countries have
been making a delicious colostrum pudding and dessert topped with
honey, for hundreds of years, to celebrate the birth of calves and
good health. It was used in the US as an early antibiotic that was
in much favor until the discovery of penicillin and other
In the late 18th Century, Western scientists began
to study colostrum and document its benefits for survival, growth
and development for the newborn. Today, there are thousands of
published scientific and clinical studies of major health benefits
associated with colostrum.
Just How Does Colostrum Work?
Colostrum is highly beneficial in the unique manner
in which it provides the body with its numerous immune factors. Most
pathogens enter the body through the mucous membranes of the
intestinal tract. In order to remain healthy, it is critical that we
are able to combat disease-causing organisms: bacteria, viruses,
pollutants, contaminants and allergens where they attack us.
Clinical research by Dr. David Tyrell, in England, in 1980, revealed
that a high percentage of the antibodies and immunoglobulins present
in colostrum are believed not to be absorbed but remain in the
intestinal tract. There, immune factors work to support proper
immune function and healthy intestinal flora. Other immune factors
are believed to be absorbed and distributed to assist in our
internal defense processes. It is this combination of action that is
believed to make colostrum so unique and effective as an oral
