    Bovine Colostrum – Nature’s recipe for staying healthy!

    Recently we participated in a natural health supplement conference and I was struck by the number and variety of natural food products that were offered.  Most everything I saw was derived from plants, vegetables, fruits, grains, or nuts.  These were common foods converted into powders, serums and extracts in the effort of delivering concentrated levels of nutritional benefits.  I learned a lot and could see that each product provided something that would help promote good health.

    Compared to the other natural food supplements our product was distinctly different.  Our banner read “Bovine Colostrum” and it caused many to stop and ask a lot of questions. As I was able to speak to more and more people I realized how difficult it was to tell the whole colostrum story in a few quick minutes.  Unlike many of the other supplements, bovine colostrum has over 90 different components, each with unique benefits and as a combined substance provides a multi-leveled approach for improved immune function, tissue growth and healing as well as fat reduction and increased lean muscle development.  As I was talking I realized that what I was saying almost sounded too good to be true.  It was at that moment I knew I had to find a way to explain bovine colostrum in a compelling way that would help people fully understand its importance as a natural supplement for improving our health. 

    I decided to think in terms of food and thought colostrum could be best described as a recipe – that is nature’s recipe.  In this way I knew people could appreciate the sum of its parts and the unique health benefits of each. I also felt people would understand that when ingredients are combined the result is a masterpiece, superior to the individual components that created it. This comparison is the perfect way to try to understand bovine colostrum. Each ingredient has an important health role and when unified the result is a recipe for immune support function, respiratory infection support and athletic performance and lean body mass support.

    Bovine Colostrum – Nature’s Recipe

    1 part - Immune Factors and Regulators

    Provides antioxidants, increases resistance to infection, helps to regulate inflammation, supports immune function, resistance to cancer, and promotes tissue growth and healing

    1 part - Growth Factors and Hormones

    Provides increased resistance to infection, helps to regulate inflammation, supports immune function, promotes tissue growth and healing and reduces fat and increases lean muscle

    1 part- Nutrients and Vitamins

    Provides antioxidants, increases resistance to infection, helps to regulate inflammation, supports immune function, promotes tissue growth and healing and reduces fat and increases lean muscle


    Collect bovine colostrum from Canadian dairy farms within the first 6 hours of birthing, test and ensure potency, purity, and safety.  Using GMP’s (good manufacturing processes), convert liquid into powder.  Excellent for; immune function support, upper respiratory tract infection support and athletic performance enhancement with increased lean muscle mass.

    Enjoy capsules and chewables with a large glass of water and add the powder to your favorite smoothie, juice or yogurt.

    Wishing you good health!




    The power of nature’s science

    Dairy cows play a dynamic role in our survival.  This animal provides us with our daily supply of milk, cheese and yogurt all of which contribute to a healthy diet.  What most people don’t realize is the dairy cow also provides us with colostrum.  Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid that is secreted immediately after birth.  All mammals produce this and it is one of nature’s powerful ways to protect, activate and regulate our immune system when we are born.  Similar to how we are able to drink dairy milk; bovine (dairy) colostrum is also appropriate for human consumption.

    For years livestock producers have counted on bovine colostrum supplement powder to enhance the newly born animals to ensure each is supplemented sufficiently so that their immune systems are well protected for survival.  Historically around the world people have recognized the benefits of bovine colostrum for themselves.  Places like India, China and Europe have embraced bovine colostrum as an immune boosting supplement because they know it offers protection from virus, bacteria and fungus.  Australia and New Zealand have been studying and consuming bovine colostrum with great confidence and consider it as common a supplement as a multi-vitamin. It is clear that bovine colostrum is serving both animals and humans well.

    In North America, we understand the importance of vitamins but rely heavily on pharmaceutical antibiotics as our main remedy.  As we learn more about natural food supplements we are beginning to embrace the importance of alternative health solutions to enhance and improve our lives.  Our attitudes are becoming more open toward “green” solutions from everything such as recycling to organic gardening. On some level, we all understand that nature has been designed to maintain proper balance for all living things, and within nature lies secrets that once discovered are incredibly suitable to supporting our lives and improving our wellbeing. In light of this new western attitude our scientists and researchers are increasingly studying nature’s bounty to produce products that help us live healthy naturally.

    Canada is a global leader in the development of natural resources and technologies and is known for its high level innovations.  Subsequently it is no surprise to learn that Canada is also a leader in the production of high quality, high potency bovine colostrum for human consumption.  The Saskatoon Colostrum Company Ltd. located in Saskatchewan is Canada’s leading manufacturer of bovine colostrum for livestock, pets and humans.  Equally important are the regulations that govern Canadian dairy farms.  The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) prohibits the use of synthetic hormones (since 1998) and ensures that antibiotics, if used, have strict withdrawal periods and cannot enter milk or colostrum for human consumption. The Saskatoon Colostrum Company processes raw colostrum exclusively from Canadian dairy farms to ensure first-in-class colostrum products.

    The human immune system is designed to ensure protection from microbes or pathogens.  Playing the role of a surveillance team, our immune system identifies all infectious agents that breach the barriers of our skin, gut or respiratory tract tissues.  Once detected our immune system works to eliminate the threat.  The first line of defense, along with the physical barriers, are the anti-microbial substances present at the mucosal surfaces including molecules such as lysozyme which is naturally present in saliva. 

    As one of nature’s perfect foods, bovine colostrum provides excellent immune support and works to prevent the colonization and invasion of pathogens that enter through our mouth and nose. It contains anti-microbial and immunoglobulin factors which greatly enhance the levels of anti-microbial substances to our oral passage mucosal surfaces.  Specifically, lactoferrin is a very important component of colostrum.  It is a unique anti-microbial in that it acts against all pathogens. Lactoferrin is able to incorporate itself into the mucus barriers providing additional protection of the epithelial cells from invasion by infectious agents.  Essentially the anti-microbial factors present in colostrum bathe and protect the mucus membranes producing increased security against pathogens.  By supplementing our immune system with bovine colostrum we increase our ability to defend ourselves against things like virus, bacteria and fungus.
