Colostrum:

The elemental power
of nature

What is colostrum?

Colostrum (also called first milk) is the first food that mammals receive from their mother – even before milk. It contains a variety of ideally balanced ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, natural growth factors and above all immunoglobulins. The ingredients of bovine colostrum are 99% identical to human colostrum. And since a calf, unlike a human infant, is born without its own immunisation, the cow’s colostrum contains many times more vital immune factors (antibodies).

Immunoglobulins (IgG)2022-05-09T15:30:55+01:00

also called antibodies, are an important part of our immune system and ward off viruses, bacteria and fungi in particular.

Growth Factors2022-05-09T15:31:22+01:00

regulate the growth and development of our cells and are indispensable for regenerative capacity.

Vitamins2022-05-09T15:31:38+01:00

are needed by the body for vital functions – colostrum contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D and E, among others.

Amino Acids2022-05-09T15:32:14+01:00

are building blocks that our body uses to produce vital proteins for cell metabolism and regeneration.

Bovine colostrum IgG

The IgG-factor

Immunoglobulins, also called antibodies, are proteins that our immune system produces to protect us from viruses, bacteria or fungi. 90% of the immunoglobulins in Bovine Colostrum belong to antibody class G – the IgG factor indicates how many times more immunoglobulins G the respective bovine colostrum contains compared to human breast milk.

Colostrum: A 100 % natural product

Nature itself has developed colostrum to provide all mammals with the best possible care in the first days of their lives. The composition and nutrient density are so unique that it is not possible to produce colostrum synthetically – which is why first milk is and remains the perfect natural product.

Because Bovine Colostrum is so similar to that of humans, the individual ingredients are optimally bioavailable, i.e. they can be easily absorbed and further processed by our body. Bovine Colostrum contains more than 400 interactive substances.

How is bovine colostrum obtained?

Bovine Colostrum is obtained from the milkings of the very first hours after calving. However, only surplus first milk, which is produced by the mother but no longer needed by the calves, is used to make products for humans.
However, the raw bovine colostrum contains a high fat content, hard-to-digest proteins and possibly some impurities – this is why it’s not directly suitable for human consumption, but must first be carefully processed.

Colostrum Gewinnung

Processing Bovine Colostrum

Bovine Colostrum is first purified from fats, indigestible proteins and germs in the laboratory. For sterilisation, either a conventional pasteurisation process is used or even better, the much gentler micro-sterile filtration process.
After defatting, the casein is also physically separated from the first milk. The result is a yellowish-clear liquid from which the ingredients can be absorbed directly by the intestine – even without prior digestion.

Frequently asked questions about colostrum

Do the calves still receive enough bovine colostrum?2022-05-16T07:32:21+01:00

Yes, of course. As the bovine colostrum is essential for the health and survival of the calf, strict care is naturally taken to ensure that it receives more than enough colostrum. The cow actually produces much more first milk than the calf actually drinks – about five to seven litres are needed by the calf, but the cow produces about 15 to 25 litres of colostrum in total. In the past, the surplus was often poured away, but today it can be made usable for humans thanks to professional processing.

How exactly does the first milk work?2022-05-09T15:43:59+01:00

This balanced nutrient mix that consists of immunoglobulins, growth factors, vitamins, amino acids, lactoferrin and much more has a wealth of positive effects thanks to its diverse and complex composition. The immune system is actively supported and natural cell growth is stimulated so that various regeneration and repair processes are effectively accelerated.

Is bovine colostrum also sustainable in the long term?2022-05-16T07:29:46+01:00

Yes, bovine colostrum is approved as a foodstuff in Germany and is therefore also perfectly suitable for regular consumption over a longer period of time.
