We source higher strength colostrum, with a minimum IgG content of 30%. Most colostrums are around 10-15% IgG.
If Echinacea is a soldier fighting to keep the body’s immune system healthy, then Colostrum is a complete army. In fact, it has 37 immune factors and a dozen growth factors that help repair skin, bones, muscle and connective tissue to help keep our bodies young and offer superb immune support.

Why take Colostrum?
Colostrum is nature’s most effective immune system booster. Take Colostrum if you want to:
Colostrum contains 37 immune factors and a dozen growth factors that help repair skin, bones, muscle and connective tissue – see details below. Colostrum supplements help to slow down the ageing process; it keeps our bodies young and offers superb immune support. How? The ageing process begins when growth factors decline naturally. Colostrum supplements provide growth factors that allow body systems to continue to operate at a higher level than would be possible with the natural age induced decline of growth factors.
What causes people to get sick?
Children and adults are more susceptible to get sick when the stress levels are high, when seasons or daily rhythms change. The beginning of a school year is stressful for children and parents with a new teacher, new classmates, intense daily schedules, and close contact with lots of other children. Some children seem to get sick easily and often while others remain unaffected by the most recent flare up of colds, flus or diarrhea.
A natural question to ask is: “why do some children (and their parents) get sick more often, and take longer to recover, than others?” We are surrounded by pathogens all year long. When a certain pathogen is present in a community, only 10-15 % of people who come in contact with the pathogen will become sick.
Two factors influence if a person gets sick, how severely sick they are, and how long the recovery takes:
People with a strong immune system remain healthy while those with a weaker immune system get sick. The strength of the pathogen is consistent.
If you or your child are getting sick too often, or take too long to recover from an illness, take Colostrum on a daily basis for a few months to help strengthen and support the immune system.
What does Colostrum do?
The composition of colostrum supports the development of a healthy immune system, in infants and in others who take the colostrum supplement. It is nature’s way to restore, strengthen and regulate immune function.
Bioactive factors found in bovine colostrum improve the absorption of nutrients in the gut, stimulate growth and defend the body against pathogens affecting the digestive system (=enteric pathogens). This group of bioactive factors includes immunoglobulins, growth factors, anti-inflammatory factors, and anti-microbial factors.
Immunoglobulins constitute the largest group of immune components in colostrum. Five different Immunoglobulin varieties neutralize enteric pathogens, such as bacteria, microbes and viruses. Immunoglobulins in bovine colostrum are:
Bovine colostrum contains several different growth factors that control cell division and cell differentiation and promote growth and development, e.g.
Bovine colostrum contains factors that belong to the innate and the adaptive immune system:
The innate immune system, the first line of defense, protects against enteric infectious pathogens by detecting and eliminating them through a complex interaction between cellular and molecular processes.
Components of bovine colostrum have been linked to the innate immune system:
The adaptive immune system responds to threats to which it has previously been exposed. Immunoglobulins are the main component in the adaptive immune system. Trypsin inhibitor is a protease that protects IgGs and other bioactive proteins against degradation in the intestine.
Bovine colostrum contains spesific peptides and proteins, part of the innate immune system, that have been reported to be antibacterial, antifungal, or antiviral products.
Immunoglobulins are mainly responsible for antimicrobial activity of colostrum; other antimicrobial factors contained in colostrum are:
Colostrum contains both water-soluble (B, and C) and fat-soluble (A, D, and E) vitamins. Vitamins are antioxidants that help to improve the immunity of different cell types.
What is Colostrum?
Colostrum, the milk produced by mammals directly after birth, contains vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, disease-fighting proteins, growth hormones and digestive enzymes. Colostrum supplies newborns an intense immune boost after birth, to keep the newborn healthy on its entry into the world. Colostrum also supports the development of the newborn’s own immune system.
Colostrum supplements extracted from bovine colostrum (the milk produced by dairy cows directly after the birth of a calf) provide an array of natural health benefits to support the human immune system.
Immunecare Colostrum is guaranteed hormone, pesticide and antibiotic free. We source only ethically collected supplies – the calf is not deprived or harmed in any way. Our colostrum is not sourced from Fonterra.
What to other people say about Colostrum?
Susan Clark writes in her book ‘What Really Works in Natural Medicine’ that Colostrum is arguably nature’s most effective immune system booster, featured in …
Dr. Jacob E. Teitelbaum is an American physician and author with special interests in chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and pain management. Talking about his own struggles with Fibromyalgia when he was a young medical student at the 2001 Fibromyalgia Conference, he referred to Colostrum, how it helped him, and his patients who he subsequently prescribed it, in reducing its symptoms.

How to take Colostrum?
Each dose should be taken with a large glass of tepid water on an empty stomach. Children aged 6-12 years may take one or two capsules per day.
Adults who want to boost their immune system or want to speed up recovery after an illness:
Immunecare Colostrum comes in bottles of 120 vegetarian capsules, which is a normal month’s supply.
We use only 100% pure colostrum from New Zealand and Australia, from pasture fed and free ranging cows. We source higher strength colostrum, with an IgG content of 22%. Most colostrums are around 15% IgG. Both New Zealand and Australia are recognised as being BSE free countries by the WHO.
We do not recommend that you take colostrum if you suffer from a clinically diagnosed dairy allergy.
The amount of lactose in colostrum is very low (163 mg in two capsules compared to 13,000 mg in one 8-oz glass of milk). Immunecare Colostrum may be taken by those suffering from lactose intolerance with no ill effects.
120 Vegetarian Capsules (480mg Pure Colostrum).
Immunecare Colostrum 120 capsules – now 30% IgG! quantity Due to unprecedented circumstances, it may be necessary in some cases to substitute Immunecare Colostrum with an equivalent product in order to maintain supply. This will only be a temporary measure. Please note that our Colostrum is not supplied by Fonterra.
