Information on Colostrum:

                        What is Colostrum?

                       Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced from the
                       mother’s mammary glands during the first 24-48 hours
                       after birth. It provides life-supporting immune and
                       growth factors that insure the health and vitality of the
                       newborn. Colostrum is so important that most infants
                       would simply die without it.

                       The Problem

                       During the fifties and sixties, many doctors
                       recommended against breastfeeding. So many of us
                       never got the natural "seeding" -- the initial boost to our
                       immune and digestive systems -- which Colostrum
                       provides. Plus, after puberty, the amount of immune
                       and growth factors present in our bodies begins to
                       decline. We become more vulnerable to disease, our
                       energy level and enthusiasm lessens, our skin loses its
                       elasticity, and we gain unwanted weight and lose muscle
                       tone. We also live in a toxic environment, with
                       pollutants and allergens all around us.

                       The Solution

                       Research has shown† that Colostrum has powerful
                       natural immune and growth factors that bring the body
                       to a state of homeostasis -- its powerful, vital natural
                       state of health and well-being. Colostrum helps us
                       combat disease-causing organisms such as bacteria,
                       viruses, yeasts and parasites; it also enables us to resist
                       the harmful effects of pollutants, contaminants and
                       allergens where they attack us.

                       Plus, the growth factors in Colostrum create many of
                       the positive "side-effects" of a healthy organism -- an
                       enhanced ability to metabolize or "burn" fat, greater
                       ease in building lean muscle mass, and greatly
                       accelerated healing of injury or trauma.

                      Why is MI-COL Colostrum better ?

                       Colostrum’s effectiveness is reduced if it isn’t organic,
                       and if it isn’t processed right. Excessive heat is
                       particularly bad. MI-COL is processed at
                       low heat to protect its potency.

                       Our original colostrum product, available in both
                       capsules and powder form, is collected only from
                       pasture-fed cows which are pesticide, antibiotic and
                       hormone free. Our suppliers, California and Washington
                       Dairies, provides a healthy cattle. This provides
                       colostrum with significantly enhanced efficacy,
                       since naturally pasture-fed animals develop immunity
                       to a wider range of pathogens than those which are
                       fed processed feed. The huge herd also creates a high
                       degree of standardization.

                       Common sense also suggests that nutrients are difficult
                       for humans to assimilate if they are not water-soluble.
                       Our High-Ig colostrum is the only genuine first-milking
                       colostrum guaranteed by independent laboratory
                       analysis to have a minimum 20% or 30% immunoglobulin
                       content. MI-COL 20% is a minimum 20% and MI-COL has a
                       minimum 30% IGg
