Colostrum As A Health Additive

Colostrum is one of nature’s great producers of healthy nutrients and yet few people take advantage of it after the first few months of life.

Colostrum is the thin fluid produced by breastfeeding mothers(natural infant formula).  It is produced in great quantities early on in breastfeeding, but the law of diminishing returns goes into effect the longer breastfeeding continues, which is a shame, in a way, because it is so beneficial for the human body.

Consider this: colostrum introduces the newborn infant to over ninety-five different compounds which balance the immune system, and also brings eight growth factors which promote normal cell growth and increased mental sharpness.

Now consider this: our gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients, and colostrum provides gut stability and nutrient absorption.  In other words, colostrum is great for gut health.

And colostrum produced by cows and goats (goat milk vs cow milk) have identical structure and benefits as colostrum produced by humans, which is good news for all of us who seek better health.  Today, as a supplement in either powder form or in capsules, colostrum can be found in any quality health store.

Among the health benefits of colostrum, suggested by researchers, are these areas:
  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies
  • Anti-aging
  • Arthritis
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Brain function
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Digestive disorders
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Nose bleeds
  • Prostrate
  • Ulcers
  • inflammation

Obviously, we at Mt. Capra are pretty high on colostrum, and we think our Capra Colostrum is a product worth considering.  With this in mind, from our colostrum label:

Colostrum is the first milk produced. Furthermore this special milk is low in fat, and high in carbohydrates, protein, and antibodies. It is nature’s transfer of immune factors that occurs the first two days of postpartum. CapraColostrum™ is made from our pure goat milk colostrum and comes in powder form or vegetarian V-Caps™ capsules.

When you weigh all the evidence, it is hard to deny the benefits of taking a colostrum supplement.

Side effects of taking colostrum?  They are rare. Since taking this product involves a cleansing of toxins stored in cells, one might experience abdominal discomfort for a short period of time, but this is simply the body switching gears and doing what our immune system naturally does.  Simply cut back on the dosage of colostrum for a few days and then resume at half the original amount.  Soon your body will welcome the return to nature and settle down in a healthy routine.

  1. Hello, I would like to give my 89 year old father the colostrum capsule. He recently got a stomach peg and I am hoping the colostrum will help him get better. We can give it to him first thing in the morning. Any senior colostrum experience/advise would be appreciated.

    • We don’t have any special advice for seniors taking the colostrum. Generally colostrum is best taken on an empty stomach for maximum effect, but will still be effective if taken with food if needed. You can always check with his physician.

  2. I am about to try your colostrum powder, but I am a little confused how best to take it. I understand it is best to take it on an empty stomach, but then I read about people mixing it with milk, yogurt, in smoothies, and even coffee (!). Is this counter productive? I want to get the most out of the supplement, but am concerned the flavor in just plain water might not be to my liking. Thank in advance!

    • Hi Joanne,

      Yes, for maximum effect, colostrum is best taken on an empty stomach. However, we do have a number of customers who find it easier to mix into smoothies or yogurt to take it and still receive benefits. We do not recommend mixing it in hot drinks, as the immunoglobulins will start to denature at higher temperatures.

  3. Hello Dears
    I have purchased your colostrum from iHerb and I received it in Saudi this week
    I want to make sure that the product is still safe during the transit process and how to store it after opening to keep it safe and benefit ?

    • Hi Ahmed, it should be fine from the shipping. We ship all over the US in the hot summer and generally don’t have any issues. It does not need to be refrigerated. Just keep it out of direct sunlight/heat.

  4. Hello! I’ve felt great results from taking Capra Colostrum….my belly feels just wonderful. But I have one downside, I am left really dehydrated daily. My guess is that the colostrum is somehow affecting the hormones that regulate electrolyte balance? That’s my hunch but I can’t find any information to research the topic and I’m sad to stop taking it. For now I’m going to cut back but I’d love to hear if anyone else has any information about the connection here? Thanks!

    • Hello, Becca. I have not heard from anyone (until you) who experienced dehydration when taking CapraColostrum. Anyone else out there have that experience?

      Fortunately, re-hydration is easy enough…as long as you remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

  5. I would like to know how much of either the goat or bovine colostrum to give a cat. I have 4 that have Stomatitis 3 with all teeth removed and 1 with 7 removed. They are still getting redness and sores in their mouths. Any other remedies that aren’t extremely expensive you could tell me about to help with oral, intestinal issues.?
    I would really appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
    Pat rancourt.
