Colostrum & The Flu Vaccine
For people who cannot tolerate the flu vaccine due to egg allergies (please consult with your physician), colostrum is a proven alternative which helps prevent or shorten the length of viral and bacterial infections.
For those of us who can receive the vaccine -- which varies in effectiveness due to numerous factors, such as age and general health -- colostrum can augment the flu vaccine by naturally modulating your body's immune system to help ward off viral infections.
Colostrum: 3x More Effective Than Vaccination
In fact, colostrum has been shown in hospital trials to be "at least 3 times more effective than vaccination" in preventing the flu, even in aged patients with heart problems.
PRPs: Colostrum's Most Powerful Component
The components of colostrum provide many health benefits, but when it comes to viral infections such as the flu, it's all about the PRPs.
Among colostrum's numerous growth and immune factors, the most important and powerful are the PRPs (Proline-Rich Polypeptides).
Colostrum-LD® from Sovereign Laboratories, which has always had the most PRPs of any colostrum on the market, has recently been improved and now contains up to 50% more PRPs than ever before.
PRPs Fight Viruses
Hundreds of scientific studies have demonstrated PRPs ability to help combat viral pathogens, including influenza. See the doctor testimonials below for more information.
Is All Colostrum The Same?
Definitely not. Only Sovereign Laboratories exclusive Colostrum-LD® (liposomal delivery) increases bio-availability by up to 1500%. Without the liposomal delivery advantage, key components of the colostrum are destroyed by stomach acids before they can be absorbed by the body, thus reducing bio-availability and therefore decreasing effectiveness.
Additionally, clinical studies have shown Sovereign Laboratories colostrum to contain higher levels of key healing components than other USA and New Zealand colostrums.
