Helps strengthen immune response. Support GI Tract Health. Supports recovery & muscle growth. Fight back with Colostrum Plus! Nature gave you a strong immune defense network, but that system gets depleted as you age. Normal physical and mental stress can also wear down your defenses. Colostrum is the only supplement you can take to add back antibodies and action support in the bloodstream and also in the GI tract. It helps maintain a robust intestinal lining and promote healthy intestinal flora. Colostrum Plus supports muscle growth. Colostrum provides over 100 beneficial components including several growth factors and cytokine precursors that you can't get from any other supplement to enhance stamina and support normal re-growth of lean muscle and tissue. Clinical studies show wide ranging health benefits for Colostrum including a significant increase in lean body mass and increases in anaerobic power, performance time, and sprint performance when compared to whey. Clinical studies also demonstrate the superiority of the ingredient in Symbiotics Colostrum Plus over other Colostrum sources. Symbiotics guarantees per serving minimums of 1.5% Lactoferrin (14 mg), 25% Immunoglobulins (240 mg IG), and 3% Proline-Rich Polypeptides (29 mg PRP), Colostrum's most important component. Our unique Bio-lipid coating insures bioavailability. Without this protective layer, other Colostrums can be destroyed by stomach acids and offer limited benefit. We use only the first 2 milkings to guarantee potency and quality. Quality and Purity Guaranteed – We guarantee that this product meets the highest standards of quality, purity and freshness. Each bottle is safety sealed with an outer neckband. Do not use if neckband is broken or missing.

Bovine Colostrum

Bovine Colostrum
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Diarrhea
Dose: 10 to 20 grams daily
Colostrum appears to be useful in treating certain types of infectious diarrhea. In one study, it significantly reduced diarrhea and the amount of oral rehydration required. (more)
Diarrhea
Dose: 10 to 20 grams daily

Colostrum might be useful for certain types of infectious diarrhea. In a double-blind trial, children with diarrhea caused by a rotavirus were treated with immunoglobulins extracted from colostrum derived from cows immunized with rotavirus. Compared with the placebo, colostrum extract significantly reduced the amount of diarrhea and the amount of oral rehydration solution required. The rotavirus was eliminated from the stool significantly more rapidly in the colostrum group than in the placebo group (1.5 days, vs. 2.9 days).1

In addition to a positive effect against acute rotavirus diarrhea,2 there is also evidence that specific forms of colostrum (derived from specially immunized cows or those with confirmed presence of specific antibodies) are effective against diarrhea caused by Cryptosporidium parvum,Helicobacter pylori,Escherichia coli, and Clostridium difficile.3, 4, 5, 6, 7 However, it is not known whether commercially-available colostrum provides significant amounts of the specific immunoglobulins that are active against these organisms. Furthermore, unless the immunoglobulins are present in high enough concentrations, the preparation is not likely to be effective.8
