Early Harvest is Essential

Harvest time is of the essence. Colostrum transitions to milk hour by hour post calving, and the second milking is approximately 84% milk. You can buy cheap, late harvest colostrum, but that is exactly what you will get. Synertek and Goettsche Labs colostrum is harvested from the first milking within 4 hours post calving. Two vital markers of early harvest are the  percentages of protein and immunoglobulin. Synertek and Goettsche Labs colostrum has approximately 57% protein and 30% immunoglobulin.

150 Million Years in Nature’s Laboratory

Colostrum is about balance, with all the hundreds of components working together in the proportions designed by nature for maximum synergy. For promotional purposes some companies fractionate colostrum or remove the fat in order to raise the percentages of the most highly publicized components. Fractionated colostrum is imbalanced colostrum. It should be noted that the fat in colostrum is not “just fat”. It contains an array of special-purpose lipids, such as gangliosides, which are essential for nerve health and brain function. Colostrum which dissolves easily in water has been defatted. Scientists estimate that mammals have evolved over a period of 150 million years. In 150 million years of working on colostrum, nature surely got it right. All Synertek colostrum is 100% whole and intact, exactly as designed by nature, nothing added and nothing removed.

Humane and Wholesome Sourcing

Synertek colostrum is sourced in Wisconsin, from small family farms with an average herd size of 120 cows, compared to typical Southwest US or California dairies with average herd sizes of over 1,000 cows, and Chinese dairies of up to 100,000 cows, which look more like factories than farms.  The farms are carefully chosen for overall quality, with appropriate regard for the health and welfare of the cows and calves, organic practices, and grass feeding.  Dairy cows produce more colostrum than the calves require, and the calves drink their fill before the surplus is harvested for human and veterinary purposes.

Safe Processing

Each batch of Synertek colostrum is processed and packaged with Good Manufacturing Practices. It is carefully spray dried at a low temperature and flash pasteurized with state-of-the-art technology that preserves maximum quality while providing safety, eliminating the small but real risk of contracting pathogens such as listeria, salmonella, E coli, and tuberculosis mycobacterium that can exist in raw unpasteurized milk and colostrum.

Colostrum and Athletics

My 73rd Birthday on Devil’s Tower. High quality colostrum is truly anti-aging. – Tom Higham, CEO

Quality Control

Each batch of colostrum is tested both by an in-house lab and an independent lab, Minnesota Valley Testing Laboratories, for purity, safety, and certainty that it meets the parameters for 4 hour colostrum, and only then is it certified as being 4 hour colostrum and of organic quality.

Usage Instructions

The best way to take colostrum powder is to toss it straight in your mouth and eat it like any other food. If you like you can take a sip of water to help the powder saturate faster. A small amount of colostrum will stick to the teeth and gums and provide extra benefit as it dissolves there, such as increased sublingual absorption, direct protection against infection in the mouth, throat, and larynx, where infection often begins, and healing of the gums, other oral tissues, and the esophagus. The bioactive proteins of colostrum are resistant to stomach acid, and colostrum mixes with saliva in the mouth to create a mucus-like coating that further protects it. Additionally colostrum contains protease inhibitors which prevent colostrum from being digested. (Detailed usage instructions including amounts recommended for various benefits are enclosed with orders.)

“As a fitness trainer of world class athletes I think I have tried every colostrum on the market, and Synertek is the only colostrum of the quality I want to provide my athletes with.”  — John Schaeffer
