The Science

People often ask what scientific evidence  there is to support our products.
Despite the positive stories we have heard it is true that there still not a lot of hard scientific evidence in this area. This makes it difficult to give definitive information about how colostrum may be of assistance.  We do know that colostrum supports a healthy gut and a healthy immune system – these two systems are  integral to our overall health and well being.

Autoimmune Conditions

Much has been said about autoimmune conditions. We do not promote colostrum as a cure for any condition but anything that promotes a healthy gut and immune system is good for all of us.
When we look at the pathology of MS, for example, we know that the myelin sheath is destroyed by our own immune system.  Colostrum helps to balance the immune system, PRPs are especially beneficial at cell to cell communication that instructs the body to have an appropriate immune response.  Many autoimmune conditions may be linked to increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut) which allows larger proteins into the blood which the immune system reacts to – colostrum helps to maintain the integrity to the gut.

Immune Support

Our consulting immunologist has provided the following information on how she believes colostrum may support the body:

“Autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis arise due to the failure of immune system “check points” which normally prevent the body’s immune system from attacking its own tissues.  When damage does occur, it is also the immune system that is responsible for orchestrating the repair process.  The therapeutic goal for successful management of multiple sclerosis is therefore two-pronged - to block the immune pathways associated with destructive immune activity as well as initiate or amplify the reparative wing of the immune system, aiming to regenerate functional central nervous tissue.  Colostrum is well positioned to fulfil this role.  Not only does it contain a broad range of pre-formed immune factors that are known to activate regulatory cellular pathways which directly counteract the destructive pathways associated with disease, colostrum also contains other factors that support the activity of immune cells that are particularly involved in repair, such as bone-marrow and central nervous system resident stem cells.  It is likely that all of these activities contribute towards the immediate therapeutic benefit of colostrum for the management of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.” 

It is important to remember that our products are not designed to treat any diseases; they are designed to support the normal, healthy function of the body, with colostrum, the particular benefit is on the immune system and digestive tract.

·         Any of the colostrum products are beneficial to support the immune and digestive system health e.g. Alpha Lipid Lifeline or Alpha Lipid Colostrum capsules or tablets. 
·         Cellworx provides PRPs which assist with immune balance.
·         Alpha Lipid Colostem supports the immune system and specifically, adult stem cell health

Colostrum in not a medication

It is important to remember that colostrum is a nutritional supplement that supports a healthy digestive tract which is where the majority of our nutrients are absorbed; it is also where many medications are absorbed.  For this reason anyone taking prescription medication must advise their healthcare practitioner that they have introduced new supplements so they can be monitored for any possible changes to their medication.

Any person who has a serious medical condition or is taking prescription medication must work with their healthcare provider and discuss any changes to their routine, such as new supplements so that they may be monitored closely for any changes to their health and medical requirements.  These are not drugs and the recommendation of products and lifestyle changes are not intended to offer therapeutic cures.  Individual results from the use of nutritional products may vary.

Alpha Lipid Colostem: the second generation.

New Alpha Lipid Colostem

Enhanced Stem Cell Support

The clever scientists at New Image are always researching new products and looking to improve the formulations of existing products. No sooner had they launched the revolutionary Alpha Lipid Sleep Time when the announcement of Alpha Lipid Colostem was made.
Colostem has been around for a while now and has proven very popular taken on its own or as part of the Stem Cell Stimulating Trilogy of Alpha Lipid Lifeline, Colostem and Cellworx.
Through extensive research into the ability of products to naturally stimulate our own stem cells the old Colostem has been modified to be even more efficient. Alpha Lipid Colostem is the second generation supporting stem cell release and nutrition.

Adult Stem Cells

Stem cells are the way of the future for maintaining good health and healing the body. Current research is showing that stimulating your own immune system to send your own stem cells to areas that need repair is an effective and efficient way to maintain quality of life. Growth factors in colostrum have been demonstrated to support the normal release and activation of adult stem cells. These cells can develop into many types of cells and go to where they are needed to heal the body.
Adult Stem cells are important when we think about Anti Aging and degenerative conditions.

Alpha Lipid Colostem: the facts

New Alpha Lipid Colostem supports stem cell nutrition and the stem cell cascade. That is the ability of stem cells to activate, specialise and regenerate.
Alpha Lipid is a patented formulation that ensures efficient absorption and bioavailability of the active ingredients
This living product stimulates immunity and helps maintain good gut health. GALT (the gut associated lymphatic system houses 70% of the body's immune cells).
The old Colostem contained Resveratrol but research has shown that the addition of the following herbs gives enhanced stimulation to stem cells

Active Ingredients per capsule:
200mg bovine colostrum
100mg Skullcap extract
100mg Date fruit extract
50mg Turmeric extract
50mg Yeast extract
20mg Fucoidan
20mg L-carnosine
10mg milk phospholipid (Alpha Lipid)

Adults take 1-3 capsules twice a day

60652 / 60 capsules

This new formulation helps stimulate not only the number of stem cells but also the activity of the cells.
Very favourable comparisons with other products claiming to stimulate stem cells has reinforced the findings that this new generation products is the one to watch.....and use of course.

The completely safe  nutritional supplement colostrum has been shown to provide great benefits for people in many areas of sport.

An increase in lean body mass, increase muscle strength, increase in strength, endurance and a speedier recovery time. All of these things can't help but give an improved sporting performance.

Training hard for many hours can lead to a lowered immune system and of course muscle damage that effects sporting performance. Colostrum contains many bioactives that help correct this imbalance leading to an overall feeling of better health.


It is the growth factors and immunoglobulins found in high levels in bovine colostrum that provide such noticeable results. One of special interest is Insulin Like Growth factor (IGF-1)that stimulates bone and muscle growth. Laboratory studies have shown a 14% increase in strength and a 15% increase in muscle mass.
Glutathione is a powerful anti oxidant present in bovine colostrum which helps attack the free radicals that cause muscle damage.
Lactoferrin is one of the naturally occurring anti inflammatory components in bovine colostrum. These have none of the harsh effects on the stomach of the non-steroidal anti inflammatory compound (NSAIDs). In fact colostrum helps to heal the gut damage done by such drugs.

Alpha Lipid Lifeline

from New Image International is one of the best kept secrets to improve sporting performance. It is a sound nutritional supplement (a Nutraceutical) with all the vitamins and minerals needed to complete the Krebs Cycle essential for energy production in your cells. Probiotics for great gut health PLUS all the growth, immune and antioxidant properties of bovine colostrum. Each serving gives you 2000mg of Alpha Lipid colostrum which is unique to colostrum from New Image. Alpha Lipid is a delivery system making the colostrum much more easily dissolved and more bio available to the body.

So if you are looking for a safe, natural nutritional supplement to help you train harder, longer and recover faster while developing increased muscle strength and lean body mass Alpha Lipid Lifeline is certainly worth a try..The proline rich polypeptides in colostrum have been shown to stimulate the release of your own stem cells which help heal the body and have anti aging properties.

Colostrum and the Flu

Colostrum and the Flu

 If like me it is winter where you live you may well be surrounded by family, friends or co workers with coughs and sneezes. Most often these are just signs of the common cold or allergies.
If we are unlucky though it may be the flu. You may be particularly prone to catching this especially if you are elderly or immuno compromised.

Recently the pandemic alert for the Swine Flu has been downgraded but in my part of the world H1N1 is alive and well. There are many people in our hospitals suffering from it right now. There has been a recent death attributed to H1N1.

As you have probably read before it has been researched and proven that taking colostrum regularly is 3 times more effective  than the Flu vaccine at preventing the flu or shortening an influenza attack. In addition the holistic effect of taking a regular dose of colostrum has many other positive benefits for our overall wellbeing. Anti aging, immune boosting and completely safe for adults, children and of course your pets - who wouldn't want to give it a try

You may find this excerpt from Wellness Resources interesting.
Bovine Colostrum directly boosts aspects of the immune response that are required to initiate a proper immune response to bacterial and viral infections, including the flu.

Natural protection against bacterial and viral infection is required for the survival of humans. The undisputed powerhouse in this category is first milk colostrum, a mothers gift of protection to the newborn child. It is clearly associated with fewer digestive and respiratory infections.

First milk bovine colostrum, since it can be commercially produced and used by humans, has been the subject of many studies. Scientists have identified many of its immune boosting activities and have suggested it as a potential tool to help combat flu. It has even been proposed as a nutrient to help with the problems of HIV infection.

In addition to the natural antibodies present in first milk colostrum a new study demonstrates that it is also the unique carbohydrate structures (sialic acid viral decoys) that are found in bovine colostrum and other concentrated whey protein products that offer significant protection.

This is a very clever mechanism, as a virus is looking for a sialic acid molecule thinking it is a human cell to infect. When it binds on to a food-related look-a-like it is bound up and rendered inert, and politely ushered out of the body without a whimper.
