Q: What is Bioactive Colostrum™?A: Colostrum or first milk is the milk produced by mammals in late pregnancy. Most species will generate colostrum just prior to giving birth. Colostrum contains antibodies to protect the newborn against disease. Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows contains immunoglobulins specific to many harmful pathogens. Colostrum was the main source of immunoglobulins used to fight infections before the development of antibiotics. In fact, the first oral vaccine against polio used from bovine immunoglobulins colostrum. As antibiotics became more prevalent, interest in colostrum waned, but, now that antibiotic-resistant strains of pathogens have developed, interest is returning to colostrum as natural alternatives to antibiotics.
Q: Who should take Colostrum?A: Anyone looking to improve immunity and overall health will benefit from a Bioactive Colostrum™ supplement. Colostrum accelerates healing of all body tissue, helps weight reduction, increases bone and lean muscle mass, and slows down and even reverses aging. According to the well-known naturopathic physician, Dr. Bernard Jensen, colostrum has a therapeutic role to play with heart disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, allergies, bacterial, viral and parasitic infections, gingivitis, colds, and the flu. Colostrum has powerful antioxidant properties, is anti-inflammatory and is a source of many vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids if it is unprocessed and in its original natural state. Athletes have used colostrum to improve performance, decrease recovery time, and prevent sickness during their peak performance seasons.
Q: How should Colostrum be consumed?A: Colostrum can be consumed as part of a shake, mixed with water or milk, or placed directly into the mouth and chewed.
Q: What is the recommended serving size?A: The recommended serving size is ½ tsp. 1 or more times a day.
Q: Is Colostrum from the cows first milking?A: Yes in comes from bovine cow’s milk collected within the first 24 hours after the calf has been born.

Is colostrum de-fatted?
Our Bioactive Colostrum is whole colostrum so it contains all of the naturally occurring fats, protein and carbs in their original ratios. Hope this helps.

Is your bio active Colostrum the same as your Vital Whey ?? Or is their a difference between the two ?? I want to improve my health and I’m looking at buying your Colostrum instead of the Whey ?? Thanks for your time.
Our Bioactive Colostrum is made from cow’s colostrum which is the first milking within 24 hours after a calf is born. It is lower in protein and higher in fat which gives it a more concentrated amount of the immune supporting protein fractions (Immunoglobulins and Lactoferrin) than our whey. For this reason, our Vital Whey is described as a protein supplement (with immune support benefits as well) and our Bioactive Colostrum is instead targeted as an immune support supplement only. Colostrum has also been shown to be easier to digest for the chronically ill so this might be a great first step for those having difficulty digesting our whey.
We hope this helps,

What is the drying method and the highest temperature the colostrum was subjected to between milking and packing?
Our Bioactive Colostrum is dried exclusively using ambient air temperature spray drying and no carriers are involved in the process. The liquid colostrum is Flash Pasteurized only once (161F for 15 seconds) before being cooled and dried at the ambient temperature mentioned. This helps us retain the exceptionally high protein fraction content from the raw material.
We hope this helps,
