Not All Colostrum Is Created Equal
By now you will all know quite a bit about Colostrum and how it can benefit most anyone at any stage, in any health.
You will know that Colostrum works by restoring the healthy function of the gut and from this our bodies will function more efficiently and be more resistant to disease.
You will have read about the amazing ability of Colostrum to mobilise Adult Stem Cells into areas of the body in need of repair and renewal. The many testimonials coming forward are proof that Colostrum is truly an amazing nutritional supplement that lives up to these claims.
Anti aging, muscle building, anti inflammatory, immune regulating....these are a few of the many beneficial side effects of taking Colostrum as part of your daily routine.
Many people have said to me that they can get Colostrum at their Health Food store or Supermarket. That is true, there are many different brands of Colostrum on the market but not all Colostrum is the same.
Colostrum is a product where quality (strength and power of the bio active components) varies dramatically. Price is not always an indication of the quality.
There are 10 Quality Indicators that influence the quality of colostrum
1 PASTEURISATION: never purchase unpasteurised Colostrum
2 PROCESSING: choose "chilled" rather than "frozen" Colostrum( this may harm the "wholeness"
choose low temperature dried colostrum, heat kills the bioactivity.
3 KEY IMMUNOGLOBULIN VALUES: choose colostrum with not only IgG values but IgA and IgM as well.
4 IgG: choose a high IgG colostrum (>20%) i.e 500mg colostrum should have at least 100mg IgG.
5 IMMUNE AND GROWTH FACTOR VALUES: strongly prefer colostrum from a supplier that includes measurement of the main Immune Factors IGF, TGF, TNF, EGF, Lactoferrin, Cytokines, Lysozyme and Lactoperoxidase. These are key constituents of Colostrum.
6 ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS: these are a key determinant of quality. Prefer colostrum from naturally immunised, pasture fed cows with no growth hormones. Cows should be from areas free of BSE and toxins. Cows from a larger herd will contain antibodies to a larger range of pathogens giving broader- spectrum colostrum.
NZ colostrum comes from such an environment.
7 QUALITY MANUFACTURING: choose colostrum only from companies complying with the highest government recognised manufacturing standards.
8 ADDITIVES: colostrum is perfect as nature designed it. Pure colostrum is best.In Targeted Products ensure any additives claiming to therapeutic to a target condition do not interfere with the bio activity of the colostrum. New Images Alpha Lipid is a distribution additive which dramatically increases the effectiveness of of Alpha Lipid Colostrum products.
9 SOLUBILITY: poor solubility reflects poor bioavailability. Alpha Lipid stops clumping and increases the solubility many fold.
10 LABELS,CLAIMS AND SCIENCE: choose your Colostrum froma supplier who will back up their claims with proper science.
