Interesting Facts About Colostrum

LifeWave’s revolutionary nutrition formula, Theta One (a component of our CORSENTIALS system), contains bovine colostrum—a nutrient scientifically proven to provide people with an incredible array of whole body health benefits. The colostrum in our Theta One formula is not only a premium grade superfood, but it also contains broad-range immunoglobulins, insulin-like growth factor (IgF-1), transforming growth factors and many more nutrients not regularly found in milk.

Dr. Robert Preston of the International Institute of Nutritional Research may have put it best when he said, “Colostrum is so safe, it has been prepared by nature as the first food for infants. It would be hard to imagine any nutritional substance more natural or beneficial.”

Interesting facts about colostrum that you may not know:

  • Colostrum provides over 100 times the amount of immunoglobulins as regular milk1
  • The best quality colostrum comes in a powder form1
  • Colostrum is best taken on an empty stomach and in water so it gets minimal interruption from saliva and stomach acids1
  • Bovine colostrum has an identical structure to the natural colostrum produced by humans 2
  • Bovine colostrum is up to 40 times richer in immune factors than human colostrum2
  • Bovine colostrum has been used by humans for thousands of years3

It’s very important to supplement with colostrum for many reasons. By the age of 30, many people produce only twenty percent of their peak levels of growth hormone. Some people seek out human growth hormone (HGH) replacement, which is only available by prescription, incredibly expensive and usually requires injections. The benefits of HGH are enormous, including anti-aging effects, improvements in muscle mass and decreases in body fat.

Colostrum contains insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), which performs many of the same functions of HGH. It is the IGF-1 in colostrum that is responsible for providing many of the benefits. What makes LifeWave’s colostrum even more powerful than other colostrum supplements on the market today (among many things) is the proprietary Theta One formula that potentiates the colostrum, as well as our Theta Activate delivery system which helps to speed up the body’s absorption of nutrients.
