I was lucky enough to be able to review Symbiotics' Colostrum Plus Capsules, so that I could share my opinion with you. Symbiotics' Colostrum Plus Formula is a unique dietary supplement that comes in a 120-count bottle. Colostrum is actually the "food" provided to mammal infants, which is contained in breast milk. If you have heard that breast feeding is essential for delivering proper nutrients that are very beneficial to growth and development, you are probably correct. Colostrum contains immunoglobulins, growth factors, antibodies, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, etc. As we grow older, our natural production of these molecules starts to decline, so it is important to restore them.
Symbiotics' Colostrum Plus is a great supplement if you are looking to strengthen your immune system. What better time than now, with Flu season right around the corner? I know that I could really use an immunity boost, because I feel myself weakening and becoming very susceptible to colds lately. I am also burning the candle at both ends by studying extensively and getting little sleep, so I desperately need something to keep my health intact, as I can't afford to get sick. I do take regular vitamins as often as I remember to, but I really believe that Colostrum Plus is an added benefit, because many of its "ingredients" are not found in your typical vitamins.
Colostrum Plus also helps support a healthy GI tract by promoting a more healthy intestinal lining, as well as a healthy flora. I just learned about the importance of gut flora in one of my classes at medical school; current research suggests that maintaining gut flora (natural, GOOD bacteria that our system needs) can actually lead to weight loss and a lower instance of disease. In obese individuals and individuals who have medical issues such as colon cancer, we see the normal bacterial flora being overpowered by "bad" bacteria, which throws off the necessary balance.
The growth factors in Colostrum Plus enhance stamina and help with regrowth of skin, bones, muscles, nerves and cartilage. By taking Colostrum Plus, you may benefit from an increase in skin elasticity (a component I was very excited about, since my doctor has always told me that I have very low skin elasticity), muscle mass production, and general strength of muscles. Another great feature of Colostrum Plus is its bioavailability (another concept I just learned about!). Having a high level of bio-availability means that a higher percentage of the supplement or drug will reach its target organ or tissue unchanged. Colostrum Plus offers a Bio-Lipid coating that keeps the capsules from being destroyed by stomach acid so that they will be most effective.
Directions: take two capsules, twice daily on an empty stomach. Triple this amount in times of environmental or physical stress. For children, cut these serving sizes in half.
The main ingredient in Colostrum Plus is Bolvine Colestrum (from milk) at 960 mg. Colostrum Plus comes from USDA Grade A dairy cows which are rBST, antibiotic, hormone, and pesticide free. Two capsules are one serving size.
I have been taking Symbiotics' Colostrum Plus for over two weeks now, and I feel great. I was plagued by colds, but so far, so good. Every time I enter a new school season I always feel myself getting sick because I seem to have a fairly weak immune system; when I am subjected to lots of different people I almost always end up coming down with something. I love that this supplement gives me the best of many worlds -- enhanced immunity, maintaining normal gut flora, possible skin elasticity improvement, and enhanced muscle mass. Although it is too early to tell whether it is having an effect on all of those components, I would say that there is a fairly good chance that it is. I can't see anyone NOT benefiting from such a powerful formula. I will continue to take the supplement until it runs out to see if I can stay Flu free, and to see if I can boost my immunity and my flora! I definitely recommend Symbiotics Colostrum to anyone that finds themselves getting sick often, or even to anyone in general...I would take this supplement as a precautionary method.
