Essential Facts about Bovine Colostrum
- With cows there is a hormone flux at the time of calving that changes colostrum production. This results in an hour by hour change in the colostrum contained in the udder.
- The change after 6 hours post calving is dramatic. From 6 hours to 12 hours the proteins, which include the most vital active components, are reduced by about 40%.
- The fat in colostrum contains many different lipids, many with specialized functions. Only whole, intact, 100% pure colostrum such as Synertek contains all the lipids designed by nature.
Change Over Time
The table below from the Fundamentals of Dairy Chemistry (a college textbook) shows the change in colostrum over time post calving, as colostrum transitions to normal milk.
in the graph below. This research was conducted by a major United States university.
Nature in her perfect way has designed for the components of colostrum to complement each other. Working together in the correct proportions, they accomplish more than the sum of the benefits of each of the components working independently, a phenomenon known as synergy.
