If Echinacea is a soldier fighting to keep the body’s immune system healthy, then Colostrum is a complete army. In fact, it has 37 immune factors and a dozen growth factors that help repair skin, bones, muscle and connective tissue to help keep our bodies young.
Please note that our Colostrum is not supplied by Fonterra.
What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is arguably nature’s most effective immune system booster, featured in Susan Clark’s ‘What Really Works in Natural Medicine’. The ‘first milk’ produced by dairy cows in the days immediately after calving, it has a high concentration of proteins with antibodies. Colostrum is completely transferable to humans hence we can enjoy the significant health benefits from this natural and potent protector.
What does it do?
Rigorous scientific testing of Colostrum in the US and the UK has found it to:
- Improve energy levels
- Increase concentration
- Help control pain
- Promote healing
- Boost the immune system
What can it help?
Its composition is so potent and varied that it can be used to help a wide range of conditions. In particular it can:
- Protect against colds, flu, ear, nose and chest infections
- Help heal wounds and minimise skin disorders
- Rid the body of viruses including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME, Fibromyalgia and Glandular Fever
- Enhance fitness levels among athletes and speed up recovery
- Heal and protect against gastrointestinal disorders including IBS, Colitis, Leaky Gut, diarrhoea and Crohn’s Disease.
Children and colostrum
The return to school marks the major shift in every child’s life-year. New friends, new learning, new teachers, a host of changes and new experiences. It is also a role of changes in season, climate, and daily schedule. Perhaps due to all of these reasons – and the major one of increased contact with lots of other children – this is the time of year when children are also most susceptible to catching whatever may be going around the school and community.
Take one capsule the first day, two the second, and so on, adding one each day until you reach eight a day. Then take eight a day for a week, and then drop down to four a day which is the normal maintenance dose. Each dose should be taken with a large glass of tepid water on an empty stomach. Children aged 6-12 years may take one or two capsules per day.
Immunecare Colostrum comes in bottles of 120 vegetarian capsules, which is a normal month’s supply. We use only 100% pure colostrum from New Zealand and Australia, from pasture fed and free ranging cows. We source higher strength colostrum, with an IgG content of 22%. Most colostrums are around 15% IgG. Our pure Colostrum is guaranteed hormone, pesticide and antibiotic free, and we only source ethically collected supplies where the calf is not deprived or harmed in any way. Both New Zealand and Australia are recognised as being BSE free countries by the WHO.
Although Immunecare Colostrum may be taken by those suffering from lactose intolerance with no ill effects, we do not recommend that you take colostrum if you suffer from a clinically diagnosed dairy allergy. The amount of lactose in colostrum is very low (163 mg in two capsules compared to 13,000 mg in one 8-oz glass of milk).
