Colostrum is the ‘first milk’ produced by cattle in the hours following their infants birth to develop the calfs immune system and trigger growth. Our colostrum is from grass-fed / finished cattle and is ethically sourced from the surplus left after the calf has been fully nourished. We gently spray dry the milk into a powder, which is packed with nutrients, peptides and growth factors. This makes it an incredibly potent natural supplement for immunity, lean muscle / connective tissue growth and gut health. Each tub contains 150g which equates to 30-50 servings.

The transforming growth factors within colostrum have been shown to heal the gut, which in turn supports digestion, immunity, neurotransmitter production and detoxification.
Colostrum contains a multitude of growth factors, which support bone, cartilage and skin health as well as aiding with lean muscle growth.
100% Grass-Fed & Regeneratively Farmed
Our colostrum is sourced from grass-fed / finished cattle, which graze outside naturally for as much of the year as is possible. They are completely antibiotic/hormone free and their diet contains no foods containing fertilisers, pesticides, heavy metals or other chemicals.
Packed with immunoglobulins and macrophage stimulating factor, colostrum is unparalleled in its ability to support immune function.
Utilising everything an animal had to offer was a way of life for humans for the majority of our existence up until recent history. We appreciated that animals gave their lives to ensure us as humans could survive and thrive so we left nothing go to waste. Also, because of our deep connection with the earth and our own bodies we intuitively knew just how nutrient dense some of the more unique animal products, such as colostrum, are. Fast forward to today and the immense power of colostrum has somewhat been forgotten. What was once highly sought after is now rarely consumed. We created our grass-fed colostrum powder to help people reintroduce this ancestral superfood, loaded with nutrients, peptides and growth factors in an easy to consume way.
How to use
Take 3-5g (1 heaped tsp) per day. This can be blended into milk, yoghurt, water or shakes. If being added by hand it’s best to mix it with a small amount of liquid into a paste before topping up to reduce clumping.
When to use
Can be taken at any time throughout the day. If being used as a general wellness supplement, we suggest consuming 5g per day. However if being utilised to recover from illness or injury, we suggest doubling the serving to 10g per day.

What are the growth factors within colostrum?
Insulin-like Growth Factor- I & II (IGF-I & -II) - The primary growth factors in colostrum, these have been shown to build lean muscle mass, balance blood sugar and stimulate the synthesis and repair of DNA. Transforming Growth Factors Alpha & Beta (TGF-a & b) - Stimulates the growth of connective tissue, including bone / cartilage and plays a key roll in wound healing and gut repair. Having a properly formed gut wall supports digestion, immunity, neurotransmitter production and detoxification. Epithelial Growth Factor (EGF) - A primary driver in the maintenance and repair of skin, including wound healing.
Why is colostrum so good for immunity?
It contains: Immunoglobulins (IgA, IgG, IgM, IgD, IgE) - Antibodies that play an integral role in immunity. Proline-rich Polypeptides (PRPs) - Crucial for thymus gland support and modulating the immune response, PRPs have been shown to bolster a weakened immune response or balance out an overactive immune system. Lactoferrin - an iron-binding protein which helps a critical roll in immunity due its antibacterial and antiviral properties. Colony-stimulating Factor-1 (macrophage colony-stimulating factor) - Stimulates the production of macrophages, which are immune cells that consume and dispose of dead pathogens. Cytokines, Interleukins, Interferons, and Lymphokines - Known to enhance T cell activity, antibody production and act as a potent anti-inflammatory. Lactalbumins - trigger apoptosis (cell death), which clears out cancerous cells and viruses.
Do you pasteurise your colostrum?
Cattle udders can be contaminated with E-coli, salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria from manure. Therefore our colostrum is gently pasteurised to kill any pathogens, whilst not denaturing the colostrum.
What about BSE?
Our colostrum is produced exclusively from herds which are certified free from BSE.
What about the calf?
A cow produces enough colostrum and milk for twins, although this is very rare. Our colostrum is ethically sourced from the surplus left after the calf has been fully nourished.
What is the IgG percentage of your colostrum powder?
IgG is 30% of protein content or roughly 17% of total weight. Therefore in one 5 gram serving of our Colostrum powder you'll get around 750mg of immunoglobulins.
How does Colostrum work?
The immunoglobulins in Colostrum are effective at the outset of usage for eliminating colonising gut pathogens like Clostridium difficile or Candida but once this is achieved the bioactivity is more about repair factors and lactoferrin to restore the microvilli of the small intestine. In short, Colostrum works do rid the gut of negative gram bacteria and then reinforces the gut wall, either protecting from or reversing leaky gut.
