Wholistic Colostrum Powder represents nature's complete package. Colostrum is fondly known as "Mother's First Milk" because it is the very first nourishment that the newborn receives before the production of "milk". Colostrum is loaded with all the benefits necessary to sustain life and, furthermore, contains the all-essential Mother's antibodies that help protect the helpless newborn from the environment's assault. Without Mother's antibodies to protect the newborn from bacteria, viruses, and disease, the newborn would quickly succumb. Wholistic Colostrum Powder is an extremely concentrated powdered form of bovine colostrum offering 500 mg of pure colostrum per 1/4 teaspoon, collected from strictly controlled US origin dairy herds that are fed diets free of meat by-products, hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, and processed in UDSA licensed & inspected human food processing plants.
