Colstramax™ is made from the highest quality bovine colostrum.
Bovine colostrum is used as a natural health enhancer and has been shown to have more immune factors than human colostrum, and is biologically transferable to humans. It’s also estimated that colostrum triggers about 50 processes in new-borns making it a great health supplement even for adults.
As we age, our bodies begin to produce less of the immune and growth factors that help us heal damaged tissue and prevent disease. Scientific studies have shown bovine colostrum to help with immune factors (protecting the body from disease) and growth factors (repairing and reversing any damage caused by disease).
Qualities of ADVAGEN colostrum:
ADVAGEN colostrum is collected only from licensed U.S. Grade A dairies, with pure colostrum fresh from the first day of milking.
There are almost five thousand dairies and 2.2 million head of dairy cows to draw from across four states (which equals approximately 25% of all dairy cattle in the USA). The colostrum from a cross-section of approximately 15,000 cows is pooled together to form one production lot. This broad cross-section helps ensure high quality colostrum that is rich in nutrients.
Comprehensive quality control program has played a key role in the success and high quality of our colostrum. Complete cGMP and HACCP program, which applies stringent controls on the dairies from which our colostrum are collected. Not only must they be licensed Grade A dairies, they must also comply with strict collection protocols. All colostrum must be collected and placed into sanitized containers and immediately transferred to a freezer to maintain product activity and quality. All surfaces and containers that the colostrum comes into contact with are always sanitized and maintained in as clean an environment as possible.
The colostrum is collected from the dairies by trained technicians. These technicians will spot and report any potential problems that may affect the purity or quality of the product. Once transported to one of the licensed food processing facilities, the colostrum is sampled and sent to quality control laboratory and tested for the presence of any harmful bacteria, antibiotics, and raw liquid quality.
ADVAGENcolostrum is thermally treated by proprietary low temperature process. The thermal treatment process used has been reviewed, inspected and approved. The product is then either gently spray-dried or further processed by defatting or concentrating the immunoglobulins before spray drying. The low nitrite emission spray-dryers have been specifically engineered to dry colostrum with a minimum of heat exposure, thus assuring no inactivation of vital nutritive agents.
In keeping with our commitment to the highest production values, we do not combine, blend, or mix bovine colostrum with any products that are from genetically modified organisms.
Growth factors help with such vital functions as the normal growth of tissue, and help repair aged or injured muscle, skin collagen, bone, cartilage and nerve tissues. These factors also stimulate the body to build lean muscle, and burn fat for fuel when dieting.
IFG-1, IGF-II, FgF, and GH (growth hormone) have been shown to help stimulate cell and tissue growth by stimulating DNA formation. Genetically engineered versions of IGF-1 and GH are now marketed as anti-aging and AIDS drugs. They are found naturally and in high concentrations in colostrum. Several studies show that these growth factors are capable of increasing T-cell production, accelerating healing, balancing blood glucose, reducing the need for insulin, increasing muscle and bone growth, and repairing while metabolizing fat for fuel.
Epithelial Growth Factor (EGF) is instrumental in protecting and maintaining the skin. Along with the other growth factors in colostrum, EGF can stimulate normal skin growth and repair cellular tissue.
Immunoglobulins, also known as antibodies, are substances produced by the body’s immune system in response to bacteria, viruses, or other foreign substances, such as fungus, animal dander, or cancer cells. Antibodies attach to the foreign substances, causing them to be destroyed by other immune system cells.
The five major types of antibodies are:
The benefits of colostrum to the human body – from boosting the immune system to promoting cell repair are continually being researched and discovered. To benefit fully from colostrum’s healing properties, your supplements should be of the highest purity – from a company that you can trust to collect only the freshest colostrum, and meticulously test for bioavailability.
Scientists and researchers have tested the healing properties of colostrum supplements with over 2,000 scientific studies:
