Numerous medical articles have concluded that bovine colostrum strengthens the immune system, helps to repair and grow muscle tissue, and is useful for many GI tract problems.
Colostrum is a milky fluid that comes from cows, and other mammals the first few days after giving birth, before true milk appears. It contains proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and proteins (antibodies) that fight disease-causing agents such as bacteria and viruses.
Why Live by Heart's Feeling Good Pure Colostrum?
It all starts with the cows.
Some colostrum companies separate the cow from her calf before the calf drinks the colostrum it needs. This causes stress in the cow and is unfair to the calf.
Live by Heart's Feeling Good Pure Colostrum is different. We believe the calf comes first. Our colostrum comes from USDA Grade A dairies where newborn calves first drink everything they need from the cow and then we extract the rest within 24 hours post-partum. Calves only need about 1/3 of the total colostrum a cow produces.
This is a big deal because it is believed that the stress an animal feels can come across in the product. Taking a baby away from any mom is very stressful! :)
Feeling Good Pure Colostrum contains no added hormones and is free of antibiotics and gluten. Another difference that sets us apart is our colostrum is spray dried at low temperatures. This insures optimum nutritional integrity.
