Frequently Asked Questions
Is Goettsche Labs Colostrum from United States dairies?
Is Goettsche Labs colostrum organic and are the cows grass fed?
How does Goettsche Labs compare to New Zealand and other brands?
Are the cows given hormones or antibiotics?
What about the calves? Don’t they need the colostrum too?
The calves are given their fill of the first colostrum, thus assuring their health, strength, and vitality, and the future of the dairy herds. Four hours is the earliest harvest time that allows time for the cow and calf to bond uninterrupted, which is essential for the psychological well being of both the cow and the calf.
Should the fat be removed?
No. “The first way of denaturing colostrum is by taking out the fat.”(Lance S. Wright, M.D.)
The fat contains active components, such as a group of lipids called gangliosides.
Gangliosides participate in diverse biological processes, including neural development, pathogen binding, and activation of the immune system. (J Agric Food Chem. 2013 Oct 9;61(40):9689-96. doi: 10.1021/jf402255g. Epub 2013 Sep 30.) Lipids are also involved in the transport and absorption of various components of colostrum.
What form of colostrum is best to use?
For internal use, use the lozenges or powder, for topical use, the freeze dried dissolved in a little water. Either the lozenges or powder provide maximize immune system strengthening. The powder is more suitable for larger usage amounts. Larger amounts will result in more of some benefits, such as lean muscle development, fat burning, athletic benefit, healing rate, and anti-aging effect.
The freeze dried has the fat removed, therefore it is not generally recommended for internal usage. However it is wonderful for topical usage – to stop nosebleeds, rapidly heal skin injuries, and to quickly heal eczema and other skin irritations. Put a few drops of the solvated product on a skin injury and you can actually see a dramatic amount of healing in only four or five minutes.
