Composition Of Bovine Colostrum

In this article, the composition of colostrum such as carbohydrates, proteins, growth factors, enzymes, enzyme inhibitors, nucleotides and nucleosides, cytokines, fats, vitamins and minerals, is reviewed. Additionally, it discusses why it’s so important to process bovine colostrum supplements in low-temperature conditions.

The Effects of Colostrum on Exercise & Recovery

Exercise is great for more than just body composition. It can do wonders for mental health, focus, and so much more. Wouldn’t it be nice to have more support for building, maintaining, and optimizing an exercise routine? Studies are showing that colostrum might be able to help.

Athletes can be especially susceptible to gut health issues caused by overly stressing the body during training. In this short video, Professor Raymond Playford, gastroenterologist, talks about his research on colostrum and its role in protecting gut leakage that occurs during heavy exercise.

How Colostrum Can Strengthen Immune Function

From allergies to upper respiratory tract infections, supplementing with colostrum can promote better balance for your immune system and provide the support it needs to function better than ever. So much so, in fact, that it has recently been identified as an “emerging nutraceutical,” which is defined as any substance that is a food or part of a food and provides medical or health benefits.

Colostrum Supplementation & Children

Many dietary supplements on the market that are made for adults and athletes are not generally recommended for children. Bovine colostrum, however, is breaking that mold and providing children’s immune systems with a nutrient-dense resource to thrive.

Throughout the body, there are barriers that help protect you from the elements.

Your skin, for example, is an important barrier to your muscles, veins, skeleton, and everything in between. Another invaluable barrier is called your mucosa, or mucosal membrane.

Your mucosa lines the nose, mouth, lungs, stomach, and intestines. It also contains important molecules that support your immune system and help your body find relief from future immune responses to modern day threats.

In our modern world, everyday toxins, allergens, and bad bacteria can take a toll on your mucosa and eventually overwhelm integral parts of your body — particularly the immune system.

Colostrum is one of the best ways you can heal, balance, and strengthen your immune system so that you can fight infection with less effort and optimize your day, everyday.

Fortify Your Entire Body

An unprotected barrier is an easy target for any infection. Whether it's scrapes or burns on the skin or holes in your gut lining, our bodies are designed to have the support of barriers for greater protection against the elements.

The difference is, the inside of the body is lined with a barrier called the mucosa, or mucous membrane. Everything from your nose, mouth, lungs, stomach, and intestines are covered with this protective lining.

The problem is that the mucosa takes on the brunt of the fight against infection, bacteria, everyday toxins and chemicals, processed foods, pollution, and more. It's no wonder then that, without reinforcements, the mucosa starts to break down over time leading to greater intestinal permeability (and gut and health issues), a vulnerable immune system, and less efficient bodily functions overall.

The Wonders Of Colostrum Supplementation

There's a reason colostrum is produced by the mother hours after giving birth. For infants, colostrum plays an important role in building their mucosa from scratch and helps to establish a strong immune system.

Colostrum naturally rebuilds, reinforces, and revitalizes mucous membranes throughout your entire body so that every system begins to perform optimally. From important growth factors to immunoglobulins, and proline-rich polypeptides, Colostrum Powder is a superfood that's been provided by nature for millennia — and it's finally getting the attention it deserves.

Colostrum Bioactive Compounds:


These antibodies are like calling in the cavalry to help your immune system’s first responders ward off invaders. They bind to pathogens, toxins, and allergens and neutralize the threat. You want to make sure you have a lot of immunoglobulins (such as IgA and IgG) on your side when you need them.


Lactoferrin induces multiple valuable biological effects, including iron absorption, immune modulation, enhancement of antimicrobial activity, and increasing the growth of epithelial cells (which are the first line of defense) in the gut.

Growth Factors
Want to stay looking younger, build muscle, and recover from activity faster? Growth factors promote cellular regeneration and tissue repair that help you do exactly that. The great news is that colostrum is jam-packed with growth factors!
Bovine Milk Oligosaccharides
These prebiotics are incredibly beneficial for building gut health. Specifically, these prebiotics are a favorite food for the (good) bacteria species in the gut microbiome. Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, to be specific, among others.
Proline-Rich Peptides (PRP)

Proline peptides are amino acids produced naturally in our body. These peptides are also known as “signaling peptides” because they have the unique ability to control the immune system—increasing and decreasing our body’s immune activity as needed. When a pathogen is detected, PRPs are one of the primary signals to be sent out in order to mobilize our immune cells to defend and protect our body.

Sialic Acid

Sialic acid are important sugar molecules found throughout cells in the body. Don’t worry, these sugars won’t spike your blood sugar. Instead, sialic acid plays an important role in cell-to-cell interaction and helps the entire body transmit necessary information. It would also make sense that newborns need an abundance of this vital molecule because it’s an essential nutrient for brain development and function. So much so that most sialic acid can be found in the brain!
