Every day there is a war going on in your gut. Harmful agents, such as foreign proteins, bacteria, and viruses are trying to enter your body through the very thin layer of cells that line your gut. For millions of us, our health habits and life style contribute to damaging this protective lining. We know that too much sugar in the diet, environmental toxins, over reliance on antibiotics, over the counter and prescription pain medications and, for sensitive people, gluten can cause harm.
Once the gut lining is damaged, these offending particles can leak into the bloodstream, targeting organs throughout the body. This fuels the fire of inflammation and contributes to a range of autoimmune conditions such as celiac, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and various neurological diseases.
Fortunately, there is a natural food that can keep your GI track healthy. It’s colostrum, nature’s first food and its most powerful health-promoting substance. In newborns, colostrum immediately goes to work closing holes in the gut. It increases muscle growth and strength. Its powerful components jump start the immune system to prevent and fight off infection. Colostrum establishes the healthy bacteria essential for gut health. And even though you are no longer a newborn, you too can gain these powerful benefits by adding this natural superfood to your diet.
What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is life’s first food, designed to bring perfect health in a hostile environment. It is the most important combination of powerful growth, immune and healing factors ever. Colostrum is the world’s most powerful super food. It has tens of thousands of clinical studies to back its incredible performance. Fresh, raw colostrum has over 200 bioactive components including immune factors, growth factors, antibodies, cytokines, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, among many, many others.
Colostrum helps boost, balance, and maintain immune function. It regulates both inflammatory and immune system responses. Components in colostrum help eliminate harmful pathogens, fight infection, and prevent the absorption of toxins. In addition, colostrum also has these wide ranging benefits:
• Protects and Repairs Stomach and GI Tissue • Promotes Beneficial Bacteria Growth • Provides Anti-Aging Support • Stimulates Skin Repair and Regrowth
Colostrum is highly beneficial for helping those with significant health challenges like cancer help rebuild their immune system. It also has benefits for those dealing with leaky gut related health issues to repair their damaged intestinal tract and prevent further foreign incursions which might trigger unhealthy autoimmune responses.
Liposomal delivery is important for colostrum effectiveness. The colostrum molecules must be protected from stomach acids and digestive enzymes until they reach the intestine, where they are then absorbed by the body for maximum benefit. Liposomal delivery protects colostrum from digestion and delivers critical bioactives all the way to the cellular level.
In nature, milk fat/colostrum is secreted by mammary secretory cells as tiny globules surrounded by a portion of the cell membrane from the original mammary cell. This membrane surrounding the globule acts to protect the milk fat and colostrum molecules from the digestive action of the gastrointestinal tract until it reaches the intestine where it has the most benefit to the infant.
Most commercially prepared colostrum has this protective membrane removed during the process of producing a powdered product. Without this protective coating, the colostrum loses is potency and effectiveness. You should always choose a colostrum supplement that replaces the lost phospholipid coating. The best products contain additional phospholipid liposomes surrounding the colostrum components to prevent oxidation and degradation of the colostrum. These liposomes also enable optimum dispersal for maximum absorption and effectiveness.
Colostrum is safe for people who are lactose intolerant. This is because colostrum is not milk. It is a concentration of immune and growth factors. Now if you are one of the rare few who experience anaphylaxis with dairy products, then do not use colostrum. But for most people this is not the case. What people call a “milk allergy” is the crossover of partially digested milk proteins into the bloodstream as a result of Leaky Gut Syndrome. Very few people are actually truly allergic to the casein in milk.
The Rediscovery of Colostrum
Colostrum remained largely forgotten until 1992 when a man in Utah rediscovered its amazing qualities in his search for relief from his wife’s intolerable suffering. That man was Doug Wyatt, and it was his efforts to find relief for Kaye that opened the door to the rediscovery of the many health benefits of colostrum. It also began the nutraceutical revolution that continues today. He is considered the father of modern human use of colostrum.
In the 1950’s, Kaye was born with an enlarged thymus. Conventional medical wisdom at the time for newborns was to irradiate the enlarged thymus to reduce the size. As a result of this ignorant approach, Kay’s immune system was destroyed and she suffered a lifetime of chronic bacterial and viral infections. Over the years she required ever more powerful antibiotics to combat the ongoing infections. After 40 years of suffering, she was ready to give up on life.
Through a chance encounter with a colleague, her husband Doug acquired some dried colostrum from a local dairy farmer. Within days, Kaye experienced a drastic improvement in her overall health and immune system. Doug quit his job in finance and devoted all his time to his wife’s health and the promise of colostrum to help other immune compromised people like Kaye.

The microbiome plays a critical role in regulating gut health, autoimmune disease, allergies, and mood. Increasingly, we are utilizing supplements, either in lieu of or alongside pharmaceutical products, to enhance key nutrients or to counter their depletion.
There is no substitute for a whole food product. Whole foods provide dozens of key nurturing ingredients in the right amount, and the right combination. The body can extract exactly what it needs for growth and repair. One of these whole foods is bovine colostrum. Colostrum is a powerful, natural food containing more than one hundred bioactives that support growth, development, overall health, and healing. You’ll learn more about its powerful benefits in this FREE E-BOOK detailing how the rediscovery of bovine colostrum offers new insights into health, wellness, and longevity.
PRO Colostrum-LD Professional Strength is the only pharmaceutical quality, standardized, clinically proven bovine colostrum available with Liposomal Delivery that increases bioavailability by up to 1,500%. Nothing can compare for trusted, proven performance and quality.
PRO Colostrum-LD Professional Strength is collected from the first milking of pasture-fed Jersey and Guernsey dairy cows that are rBST, BSE and antibiotic-free. PRO Colostrum-LD is then tested for a wide range of bioactives both pre- and post-processing in the only plant in the world designed to produce colostrum for human consumption.
It is then micronized and coated with bio-identical liposomal lipids extracted from milk and sunflower oils. Proprietary Liposomal Delivery (LD) of PRO Colostrum-LD Professional Strength protects the living immune and growth factors from oxidation during storage, prevents their digestion while transisting throug the stomach, and delivers these vital biological nutrients at the cellular level throughout the body and across the blood-brain barrier.
Without Liposomal Delivery, colostrum has little efficacy. That is why PRO Colostrum-LD Professional Strength with Liposomal Delivery is up to four times more effective than any other colostrum available on the market today.
PRO Colostrum-LD Liposomal Delivery • Professional Strength • Pharmaceutical Quality • GMP Certified • Certified Kosher and Halal • Certified Glyphosate Free • Free from Growth Hormones • Free from Antibiotics • Suitable for lactose-free diets.
Colostrum is an amazing superfood that is responsible for enabling and activating a newborn’s immune system. What was good for us as newborns is even more beneficial to us now as adults, whose bodies have been weakened by years of exposure to a wide range of toxins, viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders. Repairing our gut is the first step — not only in rebalancing our immune system, but also in healing our whole body as well.
