500mg Colostrum 20% IgG powder and encapsulating materials.
This product contains no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
100% Colostrum capsule
Maintenance Dose: Adults take 2 to 3 Colostrum capsules twice daily preferably on an empty stomach with 1 glass of water, or as professionally advised. Refrain from eating or taking other supplements for 20 minutes after taking Colostrum.
Acute Dose: Adults take up to 4 Colostrum capsules twice daily or as professionally advised and then reduce the dose to maintenance dose when you acquire your desired results.
Children:6-12 years old: Take 1-2 Colostrum capsules twice daily or as professionally advised.
3-6 years old: Take 1 Colostrum capsule twice daily or as professionally advised.
Obtaining the best results with Colostrum
Although Colostrum is still beneficial when taken with food, for best results refrain from mixing colostrum with food. Use consistently as benefits are cumulative. If you prefer not to swallow capsules break open and sprinkle onto food or beverages e.g. yoghurt, stewed fruit, protein drinks, juice or water.
NZ Pure Health Colostrum capsules are not a balanced diet and should not be used as a food replacement.
Age-protective factors Increasing vitality and energy, low immunity to chronic inflammation. NZ Pure Health 100% Colostrum has a wide spectrum of possible applications.
Allergies Food allergies can often be a factor in asthma, eczema, urticaria, hayfever and sinusitis. Incompletely digested food molecules can be inappropriately absorbed into the systemic circulation. As the immune system reacts against food proteins, this can lead to the development of food allergies or food intolerance and associated inflammation.
Arthritis Research trials are currently underway in the support and treatment of arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Autoimmune conditions NZ Pure Health 100% Colostrum may also help the body with autoimmune conditions, as the immune system may be overactive. NZ Pure Health 100%Colostrum may help enhance an under-active immune system and help balance an overactive immune system.
Digestive disturbances are prevalent in today’s society. Health professionals are using colostrum to support the treatment of diarrhea, colitis, Crohn's, gastro-enteritis, heartburn, diverticulosis and stomach ulcers.
Infections The efficacy of colostrum has been tested against pathogens including candida, bacterial, viral, cryptosporidia, campylobacter, H Pylori, salmonella and streptococcus bacteria. Research suggests colostrum may aid the body in fighting these infections.
Leaky Gut Syndrome is a common affliction, resulting in allergies and poor absorption of nutrients from food. The immune-enhancing components of colostrum are able to fight the pathogenic causes of Leaky Gut Syndrome, and the growth factors help heal and replace the damaged intestinal cells.
Weight shaping, Athletics and Sports decreases workout recovery time and increases stamina whilst promoting muscle growth and lean muscle mass. Lean muscle mass promotes fat burning for weight shape management.
What is Bovine Colostrum?
Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced from the mother's mammary glands during the first few days after giving birth. Bovine colostrum is derived from cows. Colostrum is a rich source of antibodies, growth factors and nutrients for the suckling neonate and may provide passive immunity to the newborn against various infectious micro-organisms, particularly those that affect the gastrointestinal tract. It may also have other health benefits.
The protein content of bovine colostrum is three to four times higher up to 150 grams per litre compared to 30 to 40 grams per litre than it is in regular cow's milk.
The greater part of this protein is comprised of whey proteins. Immunoglobulins, mainly IgG, make up about 75% of the whey proteins. Other substances found in bovine colostrum include casein, lactoferrin, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, and the growth factors insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), insulin-like growth factor-2 (IGF-2), transforming growth factor beta (TGFbeta) and epidermal growth factor (EGF). In addition, bovine colostrum contains vitamins, minerals, lipids and lactose. Bovine colostrum may also contain colostrinin, also known as proline-rich polypeptide (PRP), a substance found in ovine colostrum. Bovine colostrum prepared by microfiltration is mainly composed of whey proteins and their associated immunoglobulins and the growth factors IGF-1, IGF-2, TGFbeta and EGF.
Substances such as lactose, fats, casein and lactalbumin are significantly reduced in microfiltered bovine colostrum. Hyperimmune bovine colostrum is rich in immunoglobulins of the IgG type, which are protective against such infectious microorganisms as Cryptosporidium parvum (a major cause of AIDS-associated diarrhea), diarrheogenic Escherichia coli strains, Shigella flexneri, Clostridium difficile, and rotavirus, the most common cause of severe diarrhea in young children.
How Does It Work?
Colostrum is highly beneficial in the unique manner in which it provides the body with its numerous immune factors. Most infectious disease-causing organisms enter the body through the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract. In order to remain healthy, it is critical that we are able to combat disease-causing organisms: bacteria, viruses, pollutants, contaminants and allergens where they attack us. Clinical research by Dr. David Tyrell, in England, in 1980, revealed that a high percentage of the antibodies and immunoglobulins present in colostrum are believed not to be absorbed but remain in the intestinal tract where they attack disease causing organisms before they penetrate the body and cause disease. The remainder are believed to be absorbed and distributed to assist in our internal defense processes. It is this combination of action that is believed to make colostrum so unique and effective as an oral supplement.
Mechanism Of Action
Hyperimmune bovine colostrum may have antimicrobial activity based on the ability of specific immunoglobulins of the IgG type to react with bacterial, viral and other microbiological antigens in the gut. Bovine colostrum contains a few immunostimulatory substances, including lactoferrin. It may also contain colostrinin or proline-rich polypeptide (PRP), another possible immunomodulatory substance. The combination of specific, as well as nonspecific, IgGs and such immunomodulatory factors as lactoferrin and PRP may afford general antimicrobial protection of the gastrointestinal tract.
The pharmacokinetics of bovine colostrum, particularly with regard to the immunoglobulins, is unclear. It would be expected that immunoglobulins found in bovine colostrum would be rapidly inactivated by stomach acid and proteolytic action in the small intestine. Enteric coating would protect the proteins from acid in the stomach but not from proteolytic activity in the small intestine. However, following the ingestion of bovine colostrum, some immunoglobulins are found to be excreted intact in the feces after a few days. This suggests that some immunoglobulins may be more resistant to degradation in the gut.
Growth factors and other peptides and proteins in bovine colostrum are most likely degraded by proteolytic enzymes and absorbed, distributed and metabolized in the same fashion as similar dietary substances.
Have not had a cold or virus this Winter. I am positive it is due to the boost my immune system receives from this supplement. I will continue to take as part of my daily regime.
I have used colostrum for a long time and it has helped my immune system. Buying the 3 pack I found is cheaper especially when they have to ship it here to the US where it can sometimes take up to a week to get. Makes it easier so I do not have to order so often as well.
We have been taking this for a while, with regular intake can help with good immunity and seasonal allergies for kids and elderly alike.
Have been taking colostrum in my early years and then stopped as the supplier in Singapore no longer have this . Managed to find this product again in NZpurehealth selling at a bundle of 3 for a good price. Whole family inclusive of my dog have been taking it. Recommended for good immune system and healing of wounds which happens to my golden retriever all the time when she scratches herself.
I can’t give any amazing testimony of being down in the gutter and by taking these supplements I’ve became one of the fantastic four. BUT what I can say is that I’ve been taking these for over 3 years now and I not even had a cold in that time. So ether I have become one of the fantastic four or these are giving me a strong immune system.
