What Is Bovine Colostrum?

Colostrum is the first milk produced by mammals after giving birth. Bovine colostrum is specifically from cows. This early life nutrition is very yellow in color — colostrum is also known as “liquid gold” due to high beta-carotene content.

Colostrum is thicker than milk and packed with vitamins, minerals, and bioactive nutrients that help develop a healthy immune system and gastrointestinal tract (the gut).

Like human babies, calves are not born with a fully developed immune system, so it’s vital that they get the colostrum they need to survive and thrive. Growth factors, immunoglobulins, bioactive proteins (such as proline-rich polypeptides), bovine milk oligosaccharides, antibodies, and more, are found to be especially abundant in bovine colostrum.

But not all bovine colostrum supplements are created equal. Sadly, many are processed in a way that drastically reduces their nutritional benefits. WonderCow Colostrum Powder is simply dried colostrum that goes through a low-temperature pasteurization process to maintain as many bioactive nutrients as possible.

Health Benefits Of Bovine Colostrum Supplementation

The benefits of colostrum are many! Which is why we think it’s one of the most amazing superfoods out there.

Optimize Gut Health

Taking colostrum powder on a regular basis provides the gut with the prebiotics and the necessary tools to strengthen the gut lining, decrease unnecessary gut permeability, and increase good gut bacteria. This helps to make the digestive system more effective in extracting nutrients and helps the body spend less energy fully processing food.

Want to strengthen your gut or prevent intestinal permeability? Reduce the bloating (and the gut bubbles) and feel more comfortable in your own skin with colostrum.

Fortify Your Immune System

Among the many antibodies present in colostrum, lactoferrin and immunoglobulin G (IgG) play an important role in helping the immune system stay strong and ready for anything. When the immune system needs some backup for fighting against future potential threats, colostrum can help.

Fuel Exercise and Decrease Recovery Time

One study showed that regularly using colostrum as a dietary supplement for at least 8 weeks can help increase lean muscle mass and enhance athletic performance. Studies have also shown that bovine colostrum supplementation can help reduce oxidative stress and potential damage to muscle fibers after exercise. Even the most trained athletes can improve their overall performance and recovery time with colostrum!

Gain More Energy

With higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals than that of cows’ milk, colostrum benefits every part of the body’s systems with its sheer nutrient density. Add that to colostrum’s immune support, and your body can spend less energy on fighting bacteria and more on what matters most.

Strengthen Sinus and Respiratory Health

When allergies, colds, and respiratory infections strike, the mucosa in the mouth, nose, and lungs take a beating. Colostrum helps to fortify the barrier that coats these important parts of the immune system with vital bioactive compounds such as immunoglobulins and lactoferrin—offering relief from seasonal allergies. 

Enhance Skin Radiance and Elasticity

Growth factors and other bioactive components in colostrum can benefit the body from the inside out. Some studies have shown that colostrum can help assist with skin cell regeneration and support skin cell development. This can maintain skin elasticity and give it that warm, healthy glow.

Promote Restorative Sleep

As an adult, there is nothing quite like getting sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed, energized, and ready for the day. When the gut is able to function at top performance, it maintains healthy hormone levels (such as melatonin), decreases stress and anxiety, and can promote better relaxation during down times.

Improve Memory, Mood, and Focus

Did you know that approximately 95% of serotonin is produced in the gut?! That means, when you have a healthy gut, your mood actually does improve.

Among the many health benefits of using colostrum as a nutritional supplement, is the protection of proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) in the brain and bovine milk oligosaccharides in the gut. How are the brain and gut connected, you might ask? New research is finding that declined gut health can send signals to the brain that alter mood and can have negative effects on the ability to focus. Bovine milk oligosaccharides are some of the best prebiotics that improve overall gut health.

Support Your Body & Mind With Colostrum

Optimizing health is a whole body, work-in-progress mission to feel good in order to do good. And, as it turns out, the body and mind are so interconnected that trying to optimize one can also start to have a positive effect on the other.

Everyone deserves a little extra support on their health journey. Colostrum is that teammate that works hard for you so you can feel better faster and stay feeling awesome even longer.


“The kids eat it up! I put it in their smoothies and they don’t notice a thing. Even when their classroom was hit with croup, our kids didn’t get it 🙌🏼
—Lisa H.

“Ever since adding colostrum to our daily routine, I notice my hair seeming thicker and actually feel like my skin is glowing. It’s also helped decrease bloating and keep up regular digestion. To add to that my husband and I have both experienced waking up with sore throats in the morning, but felt relief within an hour of drinking colostrum—we almost couldn’t believe it. We also notice how our kids rarely get runny noses or coughs now. We are very thankful to have found something so beneficial for our entire family!”
—Erica D.

“Colostrum is a staple in our home. A simple part of our morning routine and so beneficial—we’ve seen it help with our gut health and immunity, both for adults and kids!
—Josina V.
“On our son’s first day back from daycare in 3 months, he came home with a runny nose. I add WonderCow Colostrum to his smoothie each morning, and he beat the cold! He woke up the next morning happy and healthy.
—Shannon L.
