  • What is Colostrum?
    Colostrum is the first pre-milk lactation of mammals at the time of birth and in most species, is essential for a newborn’s passive transfer of immunity, from mother-to-baby. This “first food” contains numerous bioactive components including immunoglobulins, antibodies, growth and repair factors, protein, fat, and essential vitamins and nutrients. It is Nature’s design to stimulate the immune system and jumpstart many of the biological processes to assist in the young animal’s lifelong journey of health and vitality. Studies across species have demonstrated colostrum’s positive impact on health throughout life stages.
