Important Note

The goal of the non-profit Colostrum Research Clearinghouse (CRC) is to educate health professionals and the general public about the many health benefits of bovine colostrum as a health supplementation (which the majority of the research focuses on). However, with that being said, the CRC does NOT endorse, recommend, or approve of ANY specific bovine colostrum brand or supplement. We encourage visitors to do their own research and pay attention to the delivery mechanism for absorption. Does the colostrum contain  liposomal delivery. Efficacy by proper dose is also a factor.
