NOTE: Colostrum LD Capsules and Colostrum LD Powder are the exact same product and differ only in packaging. See the Colostrum LD Capsules vs. Powder page for more information on why you might choose one over the other. Sovereign Laboratories takes a great product (colostrum) and makes it a superior product (Colostrum-LD®). Our proprietary in-house Liposomal Delivery (LD) system is an applied coating which allows colostrum to readily dissolve in liquids and ensures the colostrum will bypass digestion; will be transported through the bowel wall; will circulate throughout the body; will reach the organs and cells; and remain bioavailable at the cellular level. Liposomal Delivery makes colostrum (and other nutrients) up to 1,500 % more bioavailable (Robert R. Milne, MD); this makes Colostrum-LD® the most effective colostrum available. Without LD, colostrum loses most of its effectiveness. The LD Difference means that colostrum products from Sovereign Laboratories do what they say. Sovereign Laboratories stands behind its money back guarantee. Expect Results: Colostrum does not oxidize in storage.Colostrum is not digested (digestion destroys colostrums bioactivity).Colostrum components are delivered through the bowel wall into the blood stream to reach all organs and cells wherever needed.Colostrum components transport through the cell wall to assist in RNA and DNA repair; stem cell initiation and differentiation; facilitation of cellular growth and repair; infection prevention; and identification of damaged and diseased cells. COLOSTRUM-LD® has been shown to help: Boost, balance, and maintain unsurpassed immune functionEliminate harmful pathogens and fight infectionPrevent and eliminate diarrhea from infectious causesSuppress over-reactivity to environmental pathogens and toxinsProtect and heal GI and stomach lining (Leaky Gut Syndrome)Increase Natural Killer (NK) cell activityIncrease muscle strength and stamina; speed recovery after exercise or injury; burn fat; and maintain blood glucose homeostasisProvide anti-aging benefits Effective Use Colostrum is a food, not a drug or medicine. It is safe, non-toxic, non-allergenic and has no side effects. Bovine Colostrum is safe, non-toxic and can be consumed in any quantity without side effects or drug interactions. It contains special enzymes that prevent its immune and growth factors from being digested. An article written by Robert Preston, ND, President of the International Institute of Nutritional Research, states, "Bovine colostrum is safe. Colostrum contains an unprecedented combination of nutritional factors with which to fortify the immune system. It is so harmless, it has been prepared by Nature as the first food for infants, intended as their total diet for the first 24 hours." He further states, "It would be hard to imagine any nutritional substance more natural or beneficial than colostrum. It is safe for internal consumption by children, adults and animals." How much should be taken and how often? You should take enough colostrum to obtain results you desire; this amount varies from person to person. If you are not seeing results with colostrum, you are not taking enough. For healthy adults who want to maintain a healthy immune system and prevent Leaky Gut Syndrome, 2 capsules (or 1 teaspoon powder) twice daily are recommended. For anyone whose has compromised health situation, GI or digestive health issues, auto-immune conditions, inflammatory conditions, cancer, heart disease, is recovering from an injury, wants to get rid of allergies, or detects a cold or flu coming on, 4 capsules (1 tablespoon powder) twice a day are recommended. For athletic use and anti-aging, 10-20 grams daily optimizes growth hormone levels which translates to 2 heaping tablespoons of powder twice a day. The dosage can then be lessened to a maintenance level as long as it continues to produce results. Colostrum has a sixteen hour half-life. It should be taken twice a day on an empty stomach with a full glass of water. Colostrum's benefits are cumulative. The longer and more consistent the use, the greater the benefits. Most people feel better right away, yet about one in five first-time users experience a detox event or "healing crisis," consisting of flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, headache coughing up phlegm, skin rashes and low-grade fever. These are called Herxheimer reactions and typically last only a couple of days. The body is ridding itself of long-accumulated toxins, locked in the body's tissues and fat deposits that have suppressed the immune system and encouraged disease. This is normal, and not a reason to stop taking colostrum. You should reduce your dosage to a minimum amount (one capsule per day, or 1/2 teaspoon) until the body adjusts, and then increase your dosage as desired to achieve optimal results. Colostrum is not just for adults, and remarkable results have been observed in infants and children. Colostrum's test is in the undeniable health of children who receive colostrum and breast milk from their mothers. These children experience less illness, increased mental acuity and have stronger, more vibrant growth. If infants are not breastfed or not breastfed for at least two years, colostrum supplementation is an option. Because children have a tendency to catch colds and illness from peers in daycare and school, colostrum supplementation in these situations will help immensely. Colostrum powder tastes great and is advisable for children who are unable to swallow colostrum capsules. We can't forget our beloved pets. Veterinary use of bovine colostrum with aging and/or ailing animals (mammals) has proven to be very beneficial. Its ability to halt disease is well documented; aging pets with arthritis or joint problems are particularly responsive to colostrum. And most pets love the taste of colostrum. It's important for each one of us to take responsibility for our own health. Like the Sovereign in our company name, we believe in individuals taking sovereign charge of their health and well-being. If you are convinced by claims, testimonials, or even research stating that a product will stop disease, you must make certain that there is also supporting research showing that the product does not destroy body tissue, interact with other drugs or supplements, or create harmful side effects in the process. Colostrum-LD® is the only clinically proven substance which heals and prevents Leaky Gut Syndrome and does not cause harm to the body.
