Colostrum & Health
Health, as defined by the World Health Organisation (WHO) is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
There’s an old saying ‘prevention is better than cure’. There is no doubt that it is easier and better for us to prevent diseases occurring, than to try and reverse the destruction and pain they cause once they have taken hold.
To keep vibrant, youthful and energetic and enable us to live our lives to our fullest potential we need to:
- Nourish our body.
- Provide it with all the nutrients it needs to build a strong immune system.
- Ensure that we are absorbing and using all the nutrients we take in.
- Get enough quality sleep.
- Reduce the impact of ever increasing environmental toxins on our systems.
At New Image we believe that ‘life’s first food’, colostrum, was researched and developed by nature, refined over millions of years to provide protection for us at the most vulnerable stage of our lives. Starting the day with colostrum is the foundation for good health. In addition to colostrum products, we have a range of supplements to support your health.
Regeneration is the body’s natural cellular repair and growth process, it is supported by good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
Growth factors found in colostrum have been demonstrated to support the normal release and activation of adult stem cells. Adult stem cells have the ability to develop into any type of cell in the body. This means that they can support the normal repair and regeneration of tissues.
What is Colostrum?
When mammals, including humans, are born the first food they receive is mother’s colostrum. This pre-milk fluid is a wonder of nature, packed with nourishment – immune tonics, growth factors and a unique balance of vitamins and minerals.
Colostrum supports healthy growth and development and a naturally responsive immune system. It provides critical immune factors and complex lipids for overall health and wellbeing.
New Image is the market leader in products containing premium bovine colostrum. Because colostrum is non-species specific, bovine colostrum can be taken by humans. In fact, it is a traditional health drink in many cultures throughout the world. Colostrum is nature’s first food, of vital importance, and made available to you by New Image.
For centuries the colostrum taken from animals has been consumed by children and adults. People in India have used it as a traditional remedy for thousands of years. Research over the past three decades has shown that bovine (cow) colostrum is one of the most effective nutritional supplements available for supporting many aspects of health, most notably:
- A responsive immune system
- Digestive tract integrity (preventing “leaky gut”)
- Healthy ageing
- Natural healing and regeneration
We’re world leaders in colostrum-based natural health Products
It’s hard to beat the skill and expertise of the dairy industry of New Zealand. This land of lush green pastures is world famous for producing top quality dairy products from pasture-fed, healthy cows. Cows produce far more colostrum than their calf needs, so we developed a method of harvesting the excess from carefully selected herds in New Zealand and around the world.
Animal welfare is a top priority for us – we adhere to stringent guidelines to make sure our colostrum is sourced from contented, healthy cows.
We also rigorously test all our products to ensure they comply with the strictest international industry and food safety guidelines.
As cows produce far more colostrum than their calf requires, we can harvest the excess while maintaining strict animal welfare guidelines. Every batch of New Image colostrum is tested to ensure purity and compliance with industry and food safety guidelines.
Collected colostrum is skimmed and flash-pasteurised at 72oC for 15 seconds. This is long enough to kill any pathogenic microbes, but not long enough to damage the delicate bioactive elements. The product is then low heat dried maintaining the bioactivity and leaving a white powder.
This low heat drying process which was pioneered in New Zealand, results in a loss of bioactivity of less than 3%. From this stage it is manufactured into capsules, tablets and powdered drinks.
Why you should take Colostrum everyday
Colostrum is a natural source of many bioactive compounds and valuable growth and immune factors that work synergistically to:
