New Life 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. The Colostrum capsules are 480 mg per capsule. Recommended dosage: Two capsules 2 times daily on an empty stomach with 8 oz of water, or open capsule and sprinkle over a small amount of food. NEW!

What's Different About New Life Colostrum? Colostrum's effectiveness is reduced if it isn't organic, and if it isn't processed right. Excessive heat is particularly bad. New Life Colostrum is processed at low heat to protect its potency. New Life Colostrum is the only colostrum clinically proven to destroy a wide range of harmful pathogens. New Life Colostrum is collected only from pasture-fed cows which are pesticide, antibiotic and hormone free. Our supplier, New Zealand Dairies, provides a healthy, organic herd of more than 1.5 million 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. Symbiotics is the only U.S. distributor of bovine colostrum able to make this superior quality colostrum available to consumers. Common sense also suggests that nutrients are difficult for humans to assimilate if they are not water-soluble. Symbiotics has developed a unique, proprietary process for our original colostrum to make it fully water-soluble -- and provide maximum health benefits. New Zealand Pure! New Life Colostrum Is The Exclusive Source For New Zealand Dairies' Colostrum In The U.S. New Zealand has some of the strictest standards on the planet for the purity of its dairy products. They may contain no residue of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, heavy metals or chemical contaminants. In fact, if milk products from a certain farmer are found to contain any of these residues, the farmer is fined $100,000! New Life Colostrum supplier, New Zealand Dairies, is an ISO 9000 company, with all of the very strict quality control that this international standard requires. Our colostrum is produced under sterile conditions to our specifications, to ensure that it retains as much of its biological activity as possible. Every step of the collection and processing of colostrum is monitored, controlled and documented to ensure the purest and most potent colostrum available. Pure, Potent -- And Properly Processed To Maximize Effectiveness Colostrum's effectiveness is reduced if it isn't processed right. Excessive heat is particularly bad. Also, if colostrum is frozen, as is most U.S. colostrum, the resultant substance is not water-soluble, and is thus very difficult for humans to assimilate, as it doesn't readily disperse in the intestinal tract. These are some of the main reasons why some brands of colostrum don't provide the results they promise New Life Colostrum is processed fresh (never frozen) at low heat to protect its potency. This ensures that New Life Colostrum is water-soluble, and therefore, much easier for humans to assimilate -- for maximum effectiveness. Pasture-Fed Cows New Life Colostrum is collected only from New Zealand pasture-fed cows which are pesticide, antibiotic and hormone free. No other U.S. distributor of colostrum can make this claim. Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced from the mammary glands during the first 24-48 hours after birth. It's how a mammalian mother transfers immunity to the infant. And bovine colostrum is effective for humans because this immunity transfer factor is not species-specific. When a cow is pasture fed, it is exposed to a much larger number of bacteria and viruses than in a feedlot, and therefore, its colostrum is much more potent in transferring immunity to these pathogens to humans. Plus, when a cow eats green grass, instead of dried, processed feed, it is getting all the natural nutrients and live enzymes it is designed to get. This live, raw food means the animal's colostrum is much more potent and effective for humans. Suggested Use: Blend the contents of one packet with 7 oz. of water or your favorite beverage.

For the book, she and her husband, Doug, compiled the extensive medical studies on colostrum that they found buried in the back shelves of the medical library. Prior to this time, there was no reason to bring the research on this amazing food to the public's awareness because colostrum and its components could not be duplicated in the laboratory, as they can now. The Center for Nutritional Research (CNR) asked Kaye to briefly touch on her story of healing from her first book and include some of the information from her new book. 'When I was a newborn baby, I was given extensive radiation to my thymus gland for breathing difficulties. That was the standard procedure at the time. The doctors were not aware that the thymus gland is the master control gland for the immune system. 'Until four years ago, I had been sick all my life with allergies and infections. I lived on antibiotics for the infections and on drugs to control my allergies. These, along with an almost nonexistent immune system, destroyed my body. Everything that could go wrong with a body had gone wrong with mine. I remember feeling that I was on downward spiral with no escape. I'm certain that the mind-body connection came into play at the end because with the way I felt and the way I looked, my thinking was negative and my spirit was dying. 'When I came down with Legionnaires' disease and the doctors, after numerous antibiotics, said that it didn't look good, I pretty much gave up all hope. But my husband would not give up. We had almost exhausted our finances with traditional medicine and alternative supplements and treatments, all of which proved disappointing. 'You can imagine how skeptical and negative I was when he brought home a $160 jar of colostrum powder that a doctor from Belgium had sold him. I agreed to take some one evening because I was in so much pain from a knee injury. My knee was filled with fluid that the emergency room doctor said it could take weeks to drain. The next morning when I looked at my knee, the swelling had gone, leaving only a slight bruise. Two days later, my temperature broke for the first time in I couldn't remember how long. I was in shock, but this was just the beginning. I had no idea of the miraculous healing that was ahead of me. 'Twenty years ago, I had a serious head injury that left me with, what I was told, permanent nerve damage affecting my eyes and speech. Today I can read and work on the computer without closing one eye, like I used to have to do because my eyes focused on different levels, and I'm now able to speak without stuttering.' The Story Continues . . . A year ago, after Kaye returned from a vacation she and her husband took to New Zealand and Fiji, she shared the following story with CNR: 'The highlight of our vacation to New Zealand was the opportunity to tour the farms and plants where they process the colostrum. I wanted to understand why only New Zealand Dairy Group's colostrum worked for me. As the Kiwis would say, 'I was blown away!' Everything was so state-of-the-art and pristine. We were even asked to don white coats, shoe covers and headgear prior to entering their administrative offices. I now understand why New Zealand Dairy Group is rated the highest in the world for their dairy products. 'On our return trip we spent a week in Fiji exploring the pink coral reefs. On one of our dives, I had an accident in which water and a rare bacteria found in the ocean were blasted into my left mastoid. The mastoid is a fairly large, bony cavity that is positioned behind the ear. Mastoid infections are nasty because bacteria thrive on bone, and the blood supply to this area can be so limited that neither antibiotics nor colostrum is able to reach it. We ran out of colostrum in Fiji because we had given away so many bottles. The infection that started in the mastoid had spread to the inner ear. I was treated with antibiotics by a local doctor who refused to let me fly home with my husband, or to fly home at all, until the infection was gone and I could clear my ears. It was scary to be all alone halfway around the world and not know when I would be able to go home. The first three things I did when I finally got home were to kiss the ground, hug my husband and take my colostrum! 'Ten months later, the infection was back in the inner ear and an MRI was ordered. The doctors saw the extent of the infection in the mastoid and couldn't believe that I had held it in check for so long, leading a healthy, active life and feeling fine. I understood that the only way to reach and stop this infection now was to get on the big guns (massive amounts of steroids to break down the walls of the veins leading to the mastoid and IV-drip antibiotics twice a day for two weeks). My veins were so destroyed that after a week and a half, IV fluid escaped from my veins into my arm. This regimen is beyond a nightmare, with its toll on the body and the emotions. Because I experienced such a violent reaction, I chose to abruptly stop using the steroids, knowing they would destroy my immune system. I expected to immediately come down with the flu that everyone had and also to do battle with candida albicans. With colostrum, my immune system bounced right back, with no sign of candida. 'I'm always looking for the reason things happen in my life. I was told after the fact how lucky I was to have survived this. I don't think I would have made it without colostrum. Maybe this all happened to remind me how awesome colostrum is.' But Wait - There's More! 'My husband and I have read a lot of books recently about food allergies. We also have a lot of friends and family members who have had comprehensive tests to discover the foods they should avoid because of allergic reactions. Some people have said that their list of foods to avoid is endless. It's only natural that my husband would take the next step and schedule the two of us for a full, comprehensive food allergy test. I stalled. I knew that the foods I loved and would sometimes eat, like bread and chocolate, would be at the top of my list. Ever since I was a newborn, I have had allergic reactions to so many foods. As a baby, I would break out with eczema all over my body with any food except goat's milk. I've always been careful about what I eat, and I just didn't want the doctor to tell me that I could never cheat. 'We went ahead with the test, and I called the nurse to see when the report would be back. She told me that she couldn't wait for the doctor to tell me - that all the nurses in the office were talking about me. I thought, 'Oh, great - it's worse than I thought.' She then told me that I was the first person whose test had come back showing no food allergies. 'Research shows how colostrum helps the body with allergies. I have suffered my entire life with asthma, hay fever, eczema, hives and food allergies. With colostrum, I have become completely allergy-free, and now I have a medical test to confirm the research.' Questions Most Frequently Asked of Kaye How Much Colostrum Do You Use? 'I take several spoonfuls of the colostrum powder and 13 (my lucky number) capsules a day. I'm certain that I have to take more than the average person does because I don't have a working immune system. I am not afraid of taking a lot of colostrum because I understand from the research that colostrum is a food Mother Nature prepared to be safe enough for a newborn baby and that the body throws off what it doesn't need. This is the level that works best for me. I feel that each person needs to listen to his own body to find the level that is right for him. 'I take the colostrum twice a day, once when I first get up and about an hour after lunch. I've found that if I take it later in the day, it keeps me awake at night. According to the research, it's important to take the capsules on an empty stomach with a lot of water. I mix the powder with water in a shaker.' What Other Supplements Do You Take? 'I take a minimal multivitamin and mineral supplement, calcium with magnesium, evening primrose oil and ground flaxseed...period.' Some Last Thoughts from Kaye 'At this time, I'd like to share the most important information I've found to be true about taking colostrum. My brother recently had surgery on his leg. I told him to take lots of colostrum so that it would heal quicker. He told me that it made his leg hurt more and was also causing pain in his shoulder where he had surgery six months ago. I told him to increase the colostrum and explained to him why I felt that this was wonderful news. 'It is my belief, after talking with hundreds of people, that you can tell exactly what colostrum is healing in your body. If you have an old injury, that is the location where you'll experience increased pain. My husband is probably the best example of this experience. He received a donor tendon in his knee after an accident on the trampoline with our grandchildren. The doctors told him that he would not be able to bend his knee a full 90 degrees and to expect periodic pain. He started on the colostrum, and every day the pain got worse. Two weeks later he could barely walk because of the pain, and he said that he felt he should stop taking the colostrum. It was that night that he woke me up in the middle of the night to show me that he could bend his leg more than 90 degrees. It's been three and half years since that night, and he has not experienced any pain with his knee whatsoever. To watch him on the stair machine, you'd never believe that he'd had surgery on his knee.'
