Clinical Analysis: New Zealand Colostrum vs. US Sources
SUMMARY OF CLINICAL RESEARCH BY DR. ANDREW KEECH, PhD
Clinical studies conducted by Dr.Andrew Keech Ph.D.(an independent world-renowned biochemist and a leading authority on colostrum) shows only Sovereign Laboratories colostrum has adequate amounts of colostrum’s key healing components.
|Sovereign Labs||Other US||New Zealand|
|Lactoferrin||1.75 %||0.5 %||<0.5%|
|Growth factors||3.3-4.9 ng/gm||<0.005%||1.5-1.7ng/gm|
Lactoferrin helps deliver iron to the body where needed. It binds and removes the excess iron that harmful bacteria such as E. Coli, Salmonnella, Staph and Strep need in order to reproduce. The powerful antioxidant properties of lactoferrin help prevent the formation of free radicals in the body that can lead to disease and premature aging. It helps protect other antioxidants such as vitamins C, E and CoQ-10 in the digestive transit to remain bioactive. It has clinically been proven to destroy HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis and other pathogenic viruses and to help prevent colon cancer in animal studies.
IgA: 100 times more powerful than IgG and more important for humans. It provides long-term protection against infection in the GI tract. It is the source of most of the truly active anti-bodies for disease prevention and is sometimes called transfer factor for its ability to transfer immunity to the recipient.
PRP (Prolyproline-Rich Polypeptide) is the only true immune modulator. It helps balance the immune function by regulating the thymus gland, which produces T-cells. It also helps balance an overactive immune response which characterizes auto-immune disease. It does this by inhibiting overproduction of T-cells and lymphocytes, which leads to a reduction in pain and swelling. It has been shown to help reduce Alzheimer’s symptoms and to delay their onset. It is a cell signaling peptide that is involved in arterial wall and brain cell integrity.
Other US sourced colostrum lack growth factors due to improper processing. Why is this important: IgF-1 the most prominent factor helps retain and increase lean muscle tissue, burn fat stores for fuel rather than muscle tissue (stop catabolism), reduce insulin needs, balance blood sugar, and increase strength and stamina. Other growth factors heal and protect delicate intestinal lining from damage, help reduce risk of colon cancer and are involved in angiogenesis (reduction of blood vessel growth to cancer tissue) and apoptosis cell signaling that allows our immune system to clean out cancer cells before they become tumors.
Most importantly, without an adequate protective delivery mechanism, colostrum products are either digested or simply pass through the body intact, providing minimal benefit. Clinical trials have proven that ONLY Sovereign Laboratories Colostrum LD is effective. It helps assure that the colostrum’s healing components survive the digestive transit and are delivered to where the body needs them.
