“Miracle Milk” in a Bottle?

Category: Work Blogs

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to a new health product called COL+, which contains colostrum.  I think a lot of people don’t even know what colostrum is so I figure I’d give a brief overview.  However, I’m sure most parents are familiar with it since it is the first milk produced by all female mammals (including humans) during the first days after birth.

Colostrum is the only natural product which contains active antibodies along with other vital health components.  After doing a little more “homework,” I discovered that the benefits of this “Miracle Milk” have been known for thousands of years for its health giving properties, and studies have shown colostrum’s protective effects against influenza.  Athletes have used colostrum in an attempt to improve their performance, decrease recovery time, and prevent sickness during peak performance levels.  In fact, the Australian Olympic swim team won more gold medals than China in the 2000 and 2004 Olympic games while using colostrum supplementation.

I also learned that the IGF-1 in colostrum promotes weight loss as it is needed by the body to metabolize fat.  We produce less IGF-1 as our bodies age so that makes it more difficult to lose weight.

COL+ contains colostrum from New Zealand cows , which is collected in the first 48 hours after the birth of a new born calf during a short period in springtime.

So what’s the verdict?  I’ve got my entire family on it, and we haven’t been sick once yet.  Although it hasn’t been that long of a period, I actually feel like I’ve got more energy even though I don’t always get sufficient sleep.  The kids like to drink it too because it tastes like watered-down yogurt so it’s nice to know that I’m putting something healthy into their bodies, especially when everyone around us is getting sick with the standard flu or even H1N1!

If you’d like to find out more about what colostrum is all about, then visit the COL+ website at:

If you decide to try some, don’t forget to let me know because I’m curious as to how it works on other human beings!  сайт

Hmm…Interesting that it’s sold everywhere in Singapore, UK tends to be more cautious at taking on new ideas.

And yes, it contains various factors including immunoglobulins for immune function, and growth factor precursors. Basically a slurry of ‘goodstuff’ for new borns, which could translate to some life prolonging/improving effects when taken throughout adult life. [no conclusive clinical evidence as yet]

I see your kids being bug-resistant, and also quite tall. And you, anabolic, stamina and what not. (incl. regular bowel movements hahaha)

So does that mean that the poor baby cows get no colostrum? 😛

I think the baby cows still get their colostrum too. We humans just “borrow” some of it ;-P

The product is from New Zealand, but I know you can get it at various supermarkets such as Cold Storage in Singapore. Hope that helps!
