What Is Grass-Fed Colostrum Powder?
Colostrum is produced by mammals for the first few hours before and after birth and is commonly referred to as “immune milk.” It is the first form of milk produced by the mammary glands after birth that contains a rich blend of antibodies, antioxidants, and nutrients, over 700 constituents in total that naturally balance and rejuvenate the body. Colostrum may support immune system function, fight infections, support oral and gut health, efficient metabolism, lean muscle mass, energy, and stamina. Bovine colostrum, the type of “immune milk” that cows produce, contains much more nutritional content and active biological compounds that are directly transferable to humans than any other mammal. It is easily absorbable and contains virtually every known nutrient necessary for mammalian health. Most people with milk allergies can consume colostrum with no issues.
This true 6-hour Colostrum is 3rd party-verified, ethically harvested, pasture-based, low-temperature, spray-dried, never standardized or defatted bovine colostrum. Our colostrum is regularly lab tested for contaminants such as hormones, and pesticides. No soy or corn are fed to the cows: they eat a nutritious diet consisting of fermented forage, hay, grass, straw, millet, and sorghum.
Before the development of pharmaceuticalsantibiotics and vaccines, bovine colostrum was the most valuable source of immunoglobulins (antibodies) used to fight infection. Increased prevalence of resistant bacteria strains, as well as concerns over vaccination, has led some people to return to time-tested nutritional supplements. In a study, colostrum was found three times more effective than vaccination at preventing influenza. For more information about the study visit: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17456621.
Research has shown that regular consumption of colostrum can help support the thymus gland, which produces white blood cells and T-cells. The primary function of T-cells is to destroy abnormal cell growth, invaders, or any other types of foreign bodies. The thymus gland is a critical part of the immune system and begins a rapid decline after puberty. At age 40, the thymus gland is typically only ten percent of its size at birth. When it comes to maintaining a healthy immune system, colostrum is the supplement of choice.
General Wellness and Longevity
After puberty, the body begins slowing down the production of the growth hormones necessary for the reproduction of virtually all cellular body tissue. Colostrum’s growth factors stimulate the normal reproduction of cellular body tissue essential for regeneration.
Colostrum is a natural and healthy means of gently stimulating the brain to release serotonin and dopamine and prolong their re-uptake. Colostrum also activates the release of other chemicals in the brain that affect alertness and concentration.
Colostrum contains epithelial (skin, gums, and gut) growth nutrients that stimulate accelerated healing, and anti-inflammatory agents that can eliminate swelling and pain.
Colostrum is produced throughout the cow's body 4-6 weeks prior to giving birth, whereas the milk is made in the mammary gland and is designed for a different function entirely. Because of this, colostrum contains little lactose and the healthier A2 protein.
What temperature is it exposed to during the drying phase?
The colostrum is exposed to a maximum temperature of 162 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 seconds. The calves fed the dried colostrum showed the same benefits as the fresh colostrum.
How much dry colostrum is equal to fresh?
When dried, it's about a 6:1 ratio to fresh colostrum. It takes 1.6 gallons to make 1kg (2.2lbs) of dried colostrum.
How Do You Use Colostrum Powder?
Mix 1 teaspoon or more into a smoothie or directly in the mouth for best absorption, up to 4 times a day. More can be used for athletic and regenerative needs. Mix colostrum with water to make a paste and use topically for a rejuvenating facial. Colostrum can also be packed into the gum before bed to support healthy gums.
