• Do you get colds and flu?
• Do you get stressed?
• Do you work in an air-conditioned area?
• Do you travel regularly by bus or train?
• Do you travel by air?
• Do your children come home from school or college with sickness?
If you can answer ‘yes' to any of the above, your immune system is working overtime to combat the millions of germs you and your family are encountering and bringing home each and every day. If you don't take some ‘immune' insurance you will get sick.
- Why is everyone getting sick ?
Medical Research shows that Colostrum is possibly
the one supplement that can help everyone that's ill.
And the most important preventative you'll ever find. What is Colostrum ? Colostrum is Mother Nature's first food-likely the very first nourishment you ever received as an infant. It is the nutrient-rich fluid that a mammal mother's body produces right after giving birth, and just before her milk "comes in." Colostrum contains the promise of life: immunoglobulins, growth factors, antibodies, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and other special substances designed to "prime" the body to face a lifetime of invasion by various micro-organisms and environmental toxins bent on destruction. It's the perfect first meal for a newborn baby. It's also the perfect dietary supplement for adults and children-for the rest of their lives. In recent years, the colostrum of dairy cows has been found to benefit humans in a multiplicity of ways. The discovery of colostrum's benefits is the most important to date. Why is Colostrum Exceptional? As we age, we notice it takes us a little longer to fight off a cold or flu, something aches, our energy and enthusiasm have lessened, our skin loses its elasticity and gravity takes its toll on our bodies. Our focus may turn to health and anti aging products. We may try to balance our own vitamins, minerals and herbs… many times unaware of dangerous doses and combinations. We've looked everywhere for an answer. We've asked plants and minerals for something they're unable to provide because they don't have immune systems to produce immune factors and immunoglobulins and they don't have growth factors for muscle, skin and bone.. With killer bugs at our doorstep, we need to look to what was designed specifically for the survival of our species. Aging, illness and death occur with the loss of immune and growth factors in our bodies. Medical science has shown in hundreds of published reports worldwide that these can possibly be replaced in the human body....with bovine colostrum. Why do I Need Colostrum as an Adult? Research has shown that once we pass puberty, our bodies gradually produce less of the immune and growth factors that help our bodies fight off disease and heal damaged body tissue. With the loss of these vital components, we age and die. In addition, the body is in constant battle with the toxins of society today. Due to the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the environment that we live in, vital nutrients are always being lost and Colostrum is the only natural source of these life-giving components (immune factors and growth factors). Unlike other supplements that isolate and sometimes overdose the body in unbalanced ways, Colostrum is always a perfect combination. Research has shown that Colostrum has the demonstrated ability to kill bacteria and viral invaders, stimulate tissue repair (particularly the bowel lining), stimulate fat utilization for fuel and optimize cellular reproduction (anti-aging). No other substance on the planet can provide all of these marvellous benefits The Superiority of New Zealand Colostrum From start to finish, colostrum harvested from cows raised in New Zealand is superior to any other colostrum in the world. This is all due to the ideal grazing climate, the highly regulated ranching techniques, and a multi-million dollar investment in the equipment necessary to best process colostrum. No other colostrum can compare. Alpha Lipid Colostrum ALPHA LIPID – A breakthrough in colostrum research New Image is the pioneer of New Zealand colostrum, and one of the largest retailers in the world. At the cutting edge of bioactive neutraceutical research, its technological experience has created the most advanced colostrum formulation available today: ALPHA LIPID. What is Alpha Lipid?
New Image uses only the highest
grade New Zealand colostrum
available: Institute of Colostrum
Research, Grade 10.
To this colostrum
New Image has addeda unique coating (ALPHA LIPID), made up of added complex lipids, to produce the most effective colostrum available in the world. The ultimate delivery system Powders like colostrum, can ‘clump together' and pass through the body without being utilised. The ALPHA LIPID coating delivers the colostrum more effectively (nearly 100%) to the key areas of the body. Most colostrum additives are designed in some way to ‘alter' the function of the colostrum, but a lipid coating is different: it enhances colostrum's natural qualities to ‘magnify' its effect in the body. ALPHA LIPID also helps increase gut protection, and liver function. The ultimate antioxidant New Image colostrum is rich in Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant which is often described as ‘the ultimate antioxidant'. Antioxidants play an important part in overall good health and the prevention of disease, by scavenging for free radicals which cause disease, muscle damage, and inflammation. It has been shown that glutathione enhances athletic performance by increasing muscle strength, and increasing the capacity to exercise before fatigue sets in. Growth factors for total performance Colostrum makes the vital difference to your performance, giving you improved recovery time, increased muscular strength, more energy, improved endurance and stamina, and accelerated tissue and muscle repair. Elements that help the body grow, repair, develop and heal are collectively termed as ‘Growth Factors'. They work throughout your cells, organs, nerves, muscle and tissue ensuring proper growth and development; bringing your body to the best physical shape it can be. The growth factors present in colostrum stimulate the development of muscle tissue and bone cells leading to increased muscular strength and improved endurance, promoting an increase of up to 15% in muscle mass and a 14% increase in strength. When athletes engage in strenuous exercise, they can cause small tears in the muscle fibres. The regenerative effects of the growth factors in colostrum mean that the muscle damage is repaired more quickly. The faster you recover, the faster you can get back to training. Intestinal Health Athletes are prone to gut problems – caused by stress on the body, fatigue, damage from drugs such as antibiotics, and more notably, NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). The range of side-effects can be debilitating: gut permeability, bloating, gastric upsets, high blood pressure, water and salt retention and peptic ulcers. Growth factors in colostrum stimulate tissue repair and wound healing throughout the body and some specifically heal the gut. Colostrum has been proven to help heal gut damage and prevent subsequent damage, including that caused by NSAIDS. Immune factors and prebiotics in colostrum balance and stabilise the gut – encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria, and destroying dangerous bacteria. The gut is at the root of your health, and a healthy gut, boosts your defences against disease. With a properly functioning gut, your body is better able to metabolise everything you put into it – not just the nutrients in your diet, but also any supplements and medication you may be taking. Anti-inflammatory Inflammation is associated with strenuous exercise, and anti- inflammatories are the most commonly prescribed class of drug to athletes. Inflammation is typically centered in the joints and in the digestive tract. Inflammation is a protective response to an injury, invading foreign substance, or an internally produced substance (e.g. in auto- immune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis). The body isolates and destroys the infected area or injured tissue, plus whatever is injuring it. In doing so, the area becomes inflamed and painful. New Image colostrum contains two powerful anti-inflammatory agents: Lactoferrin and Secretory Component. Studies show they inhibit the activities of inflammation-causing agents inside the body, reducing inflammation and associated pain. Colostrum reduces the need for damaging medication, and because it is a natural food, unlike NSAIDS, it has absolutely no negative side-effects – and a multitude of benefits. Increased brain functioin Phospholipids, components of ALPHA LIPID, help in increasing brain function,
and have been associatedwith improved memory. They have also shown to elevate moods and reduce the symptoms of depression. Creatine reduction Damage to muscle cells during training becomes evident when the body's levels of creatine-kinase become elevated. Athletes taking colostrum are less fatigued during training, and have less than half the levels of circulating creatine. Is Colostrum Safe? Bovine colostrum is perfect for human consumption. Unlike the colostrum of most mammals, bovine colostrum is not species -specific – any species can take it. In particular, the molecular structure of the immune and growth factors in bovine colostrum is very similar to those found in humans. The idea of harvesting colostrum is not new. Dairy farmers have been collecting colostrum for centuries to feed to calves that lose their mothers during birth, but it is only recently we have developed the technology to process colostrum for human consumption. Cows process more than is required for their new calf, so we just collect the excess. There are no harmful side effects to colostrum. Link to Colostrum Research website
