Colostrum is not a drug but a naturally occurring food. The safety of colostrum from cows has been clinically demonstrated in adults and children as young as 1 year. Because it is a dairy product, colostrum is not recommended for people with dairy allergies. If you are pregnant or nursing, it’s best to consult with your doctor before adding colostrum, or any other supplement, to your diet.
Is colostrum safe for children?
While it is not recommended for children who are allergic to dairy, colostrum is otherwise accepted as safe for children. The safety of cow colostrum has been clinically demonstrated in children as young as 1 year of age.
Is colostrum safe for lactose intolerant individuals?
While colostrum is a dairy product, and therefore should not be used by those with a dairy or milk allergy, it typically contains less lactose than milk and should not cause an issue for lactose intolerance individuals. Because lactose intolerance can be severe in some people, we suggest consulting with your physician if you are severely sensitive to lactose.
Can I give colostrum to my newborn?
While the safety of colostrum has been demonstrated in children as young as 1YR, it is not recommended for children under the age of 12 months. If you have questions about using colostrum for your newborn, it’s always best to consult your doctor before using.
Where does Life’s First Naturals source their colostrum?
All our products are made using ColostrumOne, ethically collected from Grade A dairies in the USA.
What about the calf?
Colostrum is produced in large quantities by the mother cow, far exceeding the needs of the calf. Once the calf receives all the colostrum it needs, the rest can be collected for other use. ColostrumOne is collected only after the calf has received all of the colostrum it needs to thrive.
