What Is Colostrum Good For?

What can colostrum do for me? What is colostrum good for? Why is it the most important superfood for the prevention of chronic conditions?

Excerpts from the book: 'Peptide Immunotherapy: COLOSTRUM, A physicians Reference Guide' By Andrew M. Keech, PhD with contributions from Michail V. Borissenko BS, MS, Steven Bock, MD, Kenneth J. Frank, MD

The first thing that must be understood about colostrum is what it isn't, namely that colostrum is not a medication.

As the first food of life, colostrum is designed to maintain health and prevent disease rather than cure a disease that you already may have. To make an analogy, it's better to close the barn door before the horse runs out than after it already has. So what does it do for adults or for children older than infants? Colostrum is incredibly effective at shutting down the root cause of most chronic or autoimmune conditions, allergies, and infection – intestinal permeability, or leaky gut syndrome. Once a leaky gut is healed, the body can then work to repair its damaged tissues and bring about RADIANT and ROBUST HEALTH.


But don’t take my word for this just go to www.pubmed.gov and search colostrum, bovine colostrum, immunoglobulin, cytokines, interleukin, Lactoferrin or any of the other components of colostrum. Prepare to be surprised at the amount of peer reviewed research you’ll find!

Colostrum-LD® is first of all the finest, purest and most effective colostrum available. It is obtained from only pasture-fed US grade A dairy cows that have been certified BST, hormone, antibiotic, and mad cow free. It is gently processed and certified to contain the maximum amount of colostrum’s vital components. Then it is encapsulated into a liposome (structural coating) made from phosphatidyl choline, phosphatidyl serine and other phospholipids that protect and enhance delivery of all of colostrum's components to the intestine, body organs and structure for maximum and enhanced performance. Liposomal Delivery is a state-of-the-art delivery system that has decades of science behind it, which allows Sovereign Laboratories to guarantee its performance and effectiveness.

Colostrum’s clinically proven benefits show that (the right) colostrum helps:

  • Help fight off and eliminate infectious processes.  Clinically proven against nature’s most virulent viruses. Colostrum has been shown to be more than three times as effective as vaccines against flu5. It helps stop and helps eliminate all types of infection throughout the body, even cryptosporidial diarrhea in late stage AIDS patients who have virtually no effective immune response.[20],[21] It mobilizes macrophages, T-cells and CD-4 lymphocytes and supercharges NK (Natural Killer cell) responses by up to twenty times.17 It activates the immediate production of defense mechanisms and coordinates body defenses for optimum health, something no plant or chemical substance can even come close to.
  • Modulates immune function: Colostrum is a true immune modulator.It is the only immune support that does not rev up an already over responding immune response.[22] Colostrum’s components help balance immune responses and can assist in bringing back into balance over or improper immune responses that are associated with autoimmune conditions,[23] allergies,[24] asthma, diabetes,[25] etc. Colostrum is the only immune support appropriate for these conditions.[26] If you suffer from any of these conditions you should never take so called immune enhancers (boosters) as they can accelerate and worsen symptoms.
  • Stimulates growth and regeneration of our all body systems. Our body goes through constant renewal. Every seven years you have a completely new body. Why not give it the same regenerative and growth possibilities it has at our beginning? Muscle, skin, bone, brain and nervous tissue regeneration is proven.[27],[28],[29],[30],[31],[32] Athletes, aging seniors, our children and those who just want more lean muscle tone for a radiant appearance, all can benefit from colostrum use.

Athletes: Clinical studies show that athletes have up to 20% more lean muscle strength,[33] stamina and performance,[34],[35] stronger immune defenses (helps eliminate the after work out susceptibility to infections),[36] plus accelerated healing from injuries and strenuous physical exertion.[37],[38] Colostrum also enhances brain chemical response[39],[40],[41] for better visualizations and concentration.

Dieting:  Accelerates and supercharges every diet and exercise program. Colostrum has been clinically proven to help us burn fat, build and retain muscle, increase metabolism, and stop burning muscle tissue between meals. It balances blood sugar for enhanced energy and vitality and helps better brain chemical balance that lessens mood swings and cravings.

Blood pressure: One of the curses of modern life is high blood pressure. Milk has long been known for its ability to help maintain healthy blood pressure.[42] Peptides have been identified in milk and colostrum which function as ACE-inhibitors to lower blood pressure significantly.

Anti-aging: Who doesn’t want more muscle and strength, a sharper mental process, less fat around the middle, better immune responses, radiant GI health and optimum nutritional uptake? Colostrum is clinically proven to provide all of this; it also helps reduce inflammation[43],[44] and better balance brain chemicals. Better, more effective than anti-oxidants, growth hormone or any other therapy for strength, mobility, brain chemical function and protection and infectious defense necessary for active senior lifestyles. [45],[46],[47]

Infants and growing children: They need the same benefits after infancy; especially if they were not breast fed long enough, have food or other allergies, or have improper immune responses. Colostrum helps increases brain development, bone and muscle strength and decreases subjectivity to infections and auto-immune conditions. Soluble colostrum powder can be added to infant formulas or mixed into foods to assist immune and growth processes.

Scientists estimate that a majority of infectious and chronic disease begins in the gastrointestinal tract. And this is where colostrum is vital for the prevention and healing of GI damage from environmental factors.

GI and stomach health. GI health is vital to disease prevention at all ages. GI permeability (Leaky Gut Syndrome) is a pandemic problem with a majority of the population affected.[48] Odds are this means you and your whole family. Leaky Gut Syndrome is acknowledged to be the primary cause of autoimmune and allergic responses and the cause of many chronic disease conditions.[49] It is caused by taking antibiotics, pain and other medications (see FDA warnings), acidic beverages (sodas, coffee etc), alcohol, GMO foods, pesticides, and other environmental factors. It results in allowing foreign particles and toxins to cross into the bloodstream through our GI and stomach lining that produce adverse immune reactions, internal infections and other conditions that include the destruction of our own body structure and tissue. Probiotics cannot prevent and heal GI tissue. They only crowd out bad bacteria to reduce infections.

Only colostrum has been proven in numerous clinical studies to prevent and heal this damage and stop this destructive process. Colostrum's growth factors have been shown to prevent and heal stomach and GI damage.  Colostrum helps eliminate GI infection and inflammation and helps colonize beneficial flora and fauna (probiotics). It initiates GI immune responses and helps us optimize nutritional intake.

So who needs Colostrum? It appears that just about all of us could use these incredible benefits. We all need help to fight off and eliminate infection; increase our energy, strength and stamina; generate better bowel health; increase our mobility; regenerate and replace injured and worn out cells in our muscles, skin, bones, nerves and brain tissue; reduce stress and help achieve calm, effective mental processes.
