Colostrum-LD® is a bovine colostrum supplement from industry leader Sovereign Laboratories. It’s an all-natural concentrated source of antibodies, colostrum polypeptides, growth factors, and other nutritional bioactives designed by Mother Nature for immune resilience. Colostrum-LD® can be utilized as a stand-alone nutritional supplement, taken as one of the four pillars of immune resilience or integrated into a variety of popular diets and eating styles.
Adding Colostrum-LD® to your diet will help support optimal nutritional absorption with any diet. Research has shown that the benefits of retuning the gut will help balance the gut microbiome, promote good bacteria and help restore normal digestion.
Can Vegetarians Take Colostrum?
For those who avoid eating meat and meat products, bovine colostrum may be beneficial to help support nutritional needs. Colostrum-LD® is considered neither a meat or vegetable, so it may be suitable for vegetarians who exclusively abstain from meat.

Can Colostrum Be Taken As Part of a Lactose-Free Diet?
A lactose-free or low-lactose diet is often a solution for those who do not break down lactose well or do not have enough lactase in their body. Without dietary modification, people may experience gas, cramps, bloating, and other gastrointestinal (GI) issues after consuming milk or other dairy products.
Raw, unprocessed colostrum contains lactose, but Colostrum-LD® is a lactose-reduced formula. Sovereign Laboratories adds the lactase enzyme during processing to remove as much of the lactose as possible. As such, Colostrum-LD® is suitable for lactose-free diets.
