    Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder - 21 oz. (1 lb. 5 oz.) (595.3 g)

    Studies have shown that your immune defense system gets depleted as you age. Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder adds back antibodies and immune factors for dual action in the bloodstream and also in the GI tract. Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder helps maintain a robust intestinal lining and promote healthy intestinal flora. Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder's growth factors enhance stamina and support normal re-growth of tissue and lean muscle. Clinical studies show wide ranging health benefits and demonstrate the superiority of Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder. Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder is a dietary supplement that is high in protein and antibodies. Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder is a natural product with numerous benefits that may help:

    • Increase protein and antibodies levels
    • Boost and strengthen immune system
    • Improve digestive tract function and health
    • Relieve bowel issues

    Colostrum (also known as beestings or first milk or "immune milk") is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals in late pregnancy and the few days after giving birth. Colostrum is high in carbohydrates, protein, and antibodies and low in fat (as human newborns may find fat difficult to digest). Newborns have very small digestive systems, and colostrum delivers its nutrients in a very concentrated low-volume form. It has a mild laxative effect, encouraging the passing of the baby's first stool, which is called meconium. This clears excess bilirubin, a waste product of dead red blood cells which is produced in large quantities at birth due to blood volume reduction, from the infant's body and helps prevent jaundice. Colostrum contains all five immunoglobulins found in all mammals, IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM. There are many beneficial proteins in the colostrum, including a variety of growth factors (IGfs). Bovine colostrum is sometimes used by humans as a dietary supplement for general immunity and physical strength.

    Numerous biotechnology companies have now taken further steps by injecting cows with proprietary vaccines against human disease causing pathogens. From this "hyper-immunized" Primed colostrum, one could purify the antibodies to form the basis of their research & development, and product range. Specifically, such a method allows for a disease specific antibodies to be highlighted in the bovine colostrum, resulting with a dietary supplement that has, in addition to the general benefits of colostrum, additional attributes for fighting specific pathogens. A few examples are IBD and IBS, Mucositis and Influelnza.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why Bovine (Cow) Colostrum?
    Research has shown that the immune and growth factors in cow’s colostrum are nearly identical to those in human colostrum. Since bovine colostrum is not species-specific, it works effectively in humans as well as other animals.

    Why Do I Need Colostrum, as an Adult?
    Once puberty has passed, our bodies begin the aging process by gradually producing less of the immune and growth factors that help us fight off disease and heal damaged body tissue. Colostrum is the only natural source of these life-giving components. Research has shown that colostrum not only supports immune function, but can help enhance fat utilization for fuel and optimize cellular reproduction). As far as Symbiotics knows, no other substance on the planet can provide all of these marvelous benefits.

    How Safe Is Colostrum?
    Colostrum is a natural food that has been used for years as a food supplement.

    What If I'm Lactose Intolerant?
    The amount of lactose in colostrum is scant – 163 mg. in two capsules compared to 13,000 mg. in one 8-oz. glass of milk. Any discomfort would more likely be a sign that colostrum is working effectively in the digestive tract, but please consult your health care practicioner if discomfort persists or if it is serious.

    What If I'm Pregnant or Nursing?
    Consult with your medical professional prior to taking any prescription drugs, over the counter medications, herbs or nutritional supplements. This includes colostrum.

    Can I Give Colostrum to my Children?
    Pediatricians recommend that infants, who have not been breastfed, be given colostrum to supplement their formula. Symbiotics suggests that you consult with your pediatrician for proper dosage information. If your pediatrician is not aware of the importance of supplementing with colostrum, the Center for Nutritional Research can provide him/her with information.

    What about My Pets?
    Bovine colostrum works wonderfully with cats, dogs and other mammals because it is not species-specific. The colostrum powder can be sprinkled over their food or a small amount added to their water. Most pets love the taste of colostrum. Encourage them to drink water after they take colostrum.

    How Much Should I Take?
    Each person is unique (age, weight, health problems) as to the amount of colostrum needed to achieve an optimal benefit. Remember, colostrum is a food and can safely be taken taken when used as recommended on the label.

    Can I Take Colostrum With Other Supplements / Medications?
    Colostrum works in the digestive tract so that all substances taken internally (food, herbs, natural healing substances, and medications) will become more bio available to the body. Although colostrum has no known drug interactions, see your health care practicioner prior to use as you may find that the other supplements and medications that you are taking will have a more pronounced effect.

    What is the Difference Between the Powder and the Capsules?
    Research is pointing to the fact that to receive the maximum benefit from colostrum, it should be taken both encapsulated and in powder form. Colostrum should be taken encapsulated, on an empty stomach with a full glass of water to enable the colostrum to reach the small intestine where the immune factors have been shown to do their best work. To receive the optimal benefit from the growth factors (repair body tissue, fat utilization for fuel, anti-aging), colostrum should be taken in powder form so it can mix with the acid in the stomach or mouth. The powder can either be mixed as a shake with water or juice (possibly orange juice).

    Are There any Side Effects from Taking Colostrum?
    Side effects are very rare. If you experience any serious or undesirable side effects stop taking immediately and see your health care practioner before resuming use. Due to its detoxifying nature, certain side effects may occur. It’s possible for these toxins to produce minor rashes, bowel changes or flu-like symptoms until they are cleansed from the body.Most side effects stem from other supplements or medications that that are taken with the colostrum that are finally being utilized by the body. If taking any prescription drugs, over the counter medications, herbs or nutritional supplements, consult with your health care provider so that he can adjust or re-evaluate your supplements or medication needs.

    I'm a vegetarian. Isn't Colostrum an Animal Food?
    Although colostrum is an animal food, it has been an important part of the strict vegan diet of India’s Hindu Rishis (spiritual leaders) for thousands of years. In present day India, the milkman delivers colostrum to the wealthy Vegans. It’s interesting that cows are sacred in India, a country where vegetarianism is most prevalent.

    Is Colostrum Nature's Antibody?
    Colostrum has been shown to have many beneficial health effects. However, taking colostrum cannot change the inherent genetics of an individual. Colostrum supplementation does not change our DNA; our parents predetermine our genetic make-up. With any nutritional or dietary supplementation, the hope is to create a healthy being to discourage the proliferation of unhealthy cells. There are numerous studies that exist describing the health benefits of colostrum, and the advantages that are derived from the use of this supplement.

    Why is Some Colostrum De-fatted?
    There are no growth factors in the fat content of colostrum. Growth factors are proteins and are not a part of the fat. De-fatting colostrum is important to keep the colostrum from going rancid on the shelf.

    How Safe are the Gelatin Capsules?
    Gelatin caps are generally considered safe and come from disease free animals.

    Should Colostrum be Pasteurized?
    Absolutely! Cow manure can easily splash onto the udders contaminating them with E-coli, salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria. This creates the potential for contamination of dairy products. Dairy products (for human consumption) must be pasteurized to kill these pathogens. There are two ways of pasteurizing colostrum – the optimal flash (15 second) pasteurization and a slow 30-minute vat process. Flash pasteurization uses the expensive, high-tech equipment found in the modern dairy that does not denature the colostrum. With the less expensive, 30-minute pasteurization process, a huge vat of colostrum is heated from the outside. It takes a long time to heat a large kettle of colostrum to the required temperature. During this interval, bacteria grow in the colostrum. As the bacteria feed upon the colostrum, it denatures and destroys its effectiveness. Most colostrum that is being sold to the public today has been prepared for the animal feed market and has not been pasteurized.

    What is best time to collect colostrum?
    A high level of IgG (immunoglobulin) may be most important for a newborn calf as it is their sole source of immune protection at birth; however, for humans taking colostrum as a supplement, the level of IgG in a colostrum product is not a benchmark of quality. Although the first milking is higher in IgG, it is subsequently lower in many other important healing components, such as lactoferrin and PRP. In order to obtain a colostrum product that is perfectly balanced, with significant amounts of at least 90 beneficial components found naturally in colostrum, it should be collected over the first 48 hours.

    Is Estrogen found in colostrum?
    There is a scant amount of bovine estrogen in bovine colostrum. This form of estrogen is not bio available to humans when taken orally. Symbiotics is seeing current evidence that colostrum’s growth factors are balancing the body’s sex and growth hormones, both male and female. It is advised that women on hormone replacement therapy that are experiencing symptoms of too much estrogen may need to adjust their medications and supplements known to boost estrogen.

    Why Can't I Get Colostrum From A Local Farmer?
    You can. It needs to be refrigerated and consumed before it spoils. Raw colostrum is not pasteurized and contains immune factors from just one cow. This differs from processed colostrum, which is concentrated and provides a broad base of immune factors that have been pooled from hundreds and sometimes thousands of cows.

    Why Should Colostrum be fresh processed (not frozen)?
    Quality dairy products, including colostrum, are never frozen because it changes the composition. This is noticeable with the look and taste of milk when you freeze and thaw it. Colostrum’s effectiveness is greatly changed in this freezing/thawing process. Check to make sure your colostrum is fresh processed and never frozen.

    Suggested Use
    1 scoop daily on an empty stomach. Triple this amount in times of environmental or physical stress. For children, cut these serving sizes in half.

    Warnings

    Suitable for lactose-free diets. Close tightly and store in a dry place at room temperature. Do not use if imprinted seal under bottle cap is broken or missing.
