Natures first food. Super Colostrum is the specialised milk produced by cows after giving birth. It has a high concentration of immune supportive antibodies and growth factors, including glycoproteins, immunoglobulins (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM), lactalbumin, serum albumin, IGF1 & IGF2, and lactoferrin. Colostrum supports the immune system by helping to kill bacteria and viruses. It also helps maintain healthy digestion. There is preliminary evidence that colostrum may also improve muscle growth, athletic performance and skin conditions (including wound healing).
Colostrum provides a concentrated source of immune antibodies helping to support the immune system.
Each capsule contains the following active ingredient:

Colostrum is the milky fluid produced by mammals during the first few days after birth. Colostrum contains glycoproteins, serum albumin, lactoalbumin, growth factors (e.g. IGF-1, IGF-2, TGF β and EGF, prolactin, insulin), lactoferrin, vitamins, minerals and immunoglobulins (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM) in concentrations approximately 100 times higher than breast milk. It has been suggested that lactoferrin may activate the host defense system. Colostrum is also a major source of immunoglobulins that are delivered orally to support the immune system to kill bacteria and viruses. Colostrum might also be beneficial in improving peak anaerobic power and exercise performance. Colostrum contains growth factors, cytokines, hormones, and other biologically active components that might improve growth and repair of the gastrointestinal system. Preliminary data indicates that colostrum reduces indomethacin-induced gastrointestinal injury by promoting small intestinal mucosa growth. Colostrum may also be beneficial in limiting autodestructive inflammation in systemic inflammation.
