Bovine colostrum is the milk that comes from cows the first few days after giving birth. It contains many nutrients and proteins called antibodies.

Antibody levels in bovine colostrum can be 100 times higher than levels in regular cow's milk. Hyperimmune bovine colostrum is made by cows that have been vaccinated for specific diseases. These cows produce antibodies that fight the viruses and bacteria that cause certain diseases.

People use bovine colostrum for diarrhea and respiratory infections caused by exercise. It is also used for sepsis, athletic performance, autism, diabetes, child growth, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

NatMed Pro rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate.

Children: Bovine colostrum is possibly safe when taken by mouth for 1-3 mouths. There isn't enough reliable information to know if it is safe to use longer-term.

It is not known if Bovine Colostrum interacts with any medicines. Before taking Bovine Colostrum, talk with your healthcare professional if you take any medications.

There are no known interactions with herbs and supplements.

Taking bovine colostrum with food might decrease its effects. Food causes an increase in stomach acid and digestive enzymes, which may break down bovine colostrum.

Bovine colostrum has most often been used by adults in doses of 10-60 grams by mouth daily for up to 8 weeks. In children, bovine colostrum has been given in doses based on age and weight. Speak with a healthcare provider to find out what type of product and dose might be best for a specific condition.
