Important Facts About Bovine Colostrum

First six hour colostrum is different than colostrum harvested later, since the quantities and proportions of components change post calving, and dramatically after the six hour mark.  The Fundamentals of Dairy Chemistry, a college textbook, clearly illustrates that fact with a table showing Transition From Colostrum to Normal Milk.

The fat in colostrum contains vital components such as a group of lipids called gangliosides. Gangliosides participate in diverse biological processes, including neural development, brain function, pathogen binding, and activation of the immune system (J Agric Food Chem). Lipids are also involved in the transport and absorption of various components of colostrum. The Fundamentals of Dairy Chemistry devotes an entire chapter to lipid composition and properties. Only whole, intact colostrum contains the lipids that nature designed for colostrum; defatted colostrum does not. As a scientific example of the importance of the lipids in colostrum see Isotopic labeling of milk disialogangliosides (GD3). Reis MG, Bibiloni R, McJarrow P, MacGibbon A, Fong B, Bassett S, Roy N, Dos Reis MM., Chem Phys Lipids.  Some colostrum products are defatted and “instantized” by replacing the natural lipids in the fat with  a generic lipid such as lecithin, which Synertek believes is a big mistake. For one thing the potential health risks of supplemental lecithin may be significant. For example see “Lecithin: The Dark Side of a Dietary Supplement” on The Doctor Weighs In website.

Why Synertek Does Not Sell Capsules or “Instantized” Colostrum

Capsule proponents may argue that capsules bypass the stomach’s digestive enzymes. The truth is that capsules tend to float on stomach contents until releasing the colostrum  (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8138903). If you have encapsulated colostrum, drop one of the capsules in water and you will see that it floats until it dissolves. Moreover since capsules prevent the exposure of colostrum to the membranes of the mouth and throat, all benefits that may occur in the mouth and throat with natural, not encapsulated colostrum are lost, such as sublingual absorption, direct protection against infection, and healing of the gums and esophagus. This is also the case with colostrum that is “instantized” with lecithin, which makes colostrum dissolve instantly in liquid, but is then swallowed with the liquid, with almost no exposure of the colostrum components in the mouth and esophagus. Also, before you buy colostrum with lecithin because it costs less, remember that lecithin can be used as a dirt-cheap filler to add volume and weight to a colostrum product and also has potential side effects.

Synertek colostrum is harvested from U.S. Midwestern family farms, carefully chosen for overall quality, with appropriate regard for the health and welfare of the cows and calves, organic practices, and grass feeding.


Synertek’s harvesting and processing company was the first in the business. It developed harvesting and processing procedures that have been copied with varying degrees of success by every colostrum company since. Each batch of Synertek colostrum is flash pasteurized and spray dried, in accord with practices proven through years of research and testing to maintain maximum product quality.

Quality Control

Synertek colostrum is harvested exclusively from U.S. grade A dairies. Each batch of colostrum is tested both by an in-house lab and an independent lab, Minnesota Valley Testing Laboratories, for purity, safety, and to be certain it meets the parameters of six hour colostrum, and only then is it certified.
