More in detail

Allergies: MIP Colostrum is a scientifically proven supplement that supports the immune system and reduces the symptoms of allergy. The reason MIP Colostrum is such a good supplement for allergies is thanks to a substance known as proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) or Colostrinin. PRP is abundant in bovine colostrum, which is four times richer in immune factors than human colostrum and has the added benefit of compounds that protect these active ingredients from destruction in our digestive systems. PRP in MIP Colostrum regulates our immune systems. It’s capable of ‘dampening down’ an overactive immune system, the sort of circumstances that can lead to allergic reactions and autoimmune disorders, by inhibiting the overproduction of lymphocytes and T-cells; it also stimulates an underactive immune system to fight pathogens. PRP is supported by immunoglobulins, cytokines and lymphokines, all very important immune factors in their own right. In effect, bovine colostrum provides a ‘blueprint’ for the newborn calf’s healthy immune system, using immune factors that are fully compatible with the human body. MIP Colostrum is a powerful tool for ‘resetting’ your hypersensitive immune system and relieving the discomfort and stress of allergies.

Anti-Ageing: Benefits of MIP Colostrum are widely recognized with its role as a guard against aging, dementia, Alzheimer and as a cognitive improver – it supports the body over the years both in terms of external appearance and internal decline. It contains powerful anti-aging and growth factors (epithelial growth factor, EgF, GF-1, transforming GF A & B, TgF A & B and GH) as well as the crucial ingredient of Colostrinin, which counteracts the aging process in humans by taking up the role of human GH's. 

Antioxidant: MIP Colostrum is a brilliant source of the amino acid components of a powerful antioxidant, glutathione – not just an antioxidant in its own right but a supporter of other antioxidant substances and a potent detoxifying agent. Glutathione acts particularly well on the oxidative stress caused by physical exertion, while protecting cells from environmental toxins at the same time.

Arthritis: Research has shown that sufferers of autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis can be successfully treated using the immunoglobulins in colostrum. MIP Colostrum is a rich, undiluted source of immunoglobulin IgG – 18-22% by weight. MIP Colostrum soothes pain and swelling in affected joints as it naturally combats inflammation. Additionally, it protects and heals the gut which is a major boost to those who use NSAIDs (non-steroidal pain relief).

Autoimmune Conditions: The use of colostrum for autoimmune conditions is well-researched and documented. Immunoglobulins & Lactoferrin: Both found in significant quantities in high-quality colostrum, these substances fight foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses and parasites in the gut – before they’re able to pass the intestinal wall and trigger an immune response that can trigger or worsen autoimmune symptoms. PRP (proline-rich polypeptides): This substance, also known as Colostrinin, is a powerful immune modulator which can help to calm down an overactive immune system. GF's help to repair the damage caused by autoimmune conditions. EGF can help in reversing the skin cell damage caused by lupus and other diseases, as well as repairing the lining of the gut, bolstering the body’s defence against pathogens. TGF helps reverse protein breakdown and boost tissue repair. All of the growth factors in colostrum have an anti-inflammatory effect and help to repair cellular damage throughout the body.

Blood Pressure: Various milk peptides and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium found in colostrum have been demonstrated to have a blood pressure lowering effect, several clinical studies even showing that it reduces the risk of strokes. Low sodium content is also another reason for using colostrum. It also helps you maintain weight by modulating your fat burning capacity and increasing lean body mass due to its high IGF-1 content. 

Cancer: Colostrum contains epithelial growth factor (EGF), transforming growth factors (TGF-A, TGF-B), and other GH's which are known to stimulate tissue repair, especially in the bowel lining, mucous membranes, and skin. They also help the regeneration of injured muscle, collagen, bone, cartilage, and nerve tissue, speeds healing after surgery, and prevents and heals gingivitis. Alpha-lactalbumin (LA) contained in colostrum has anti-tumour properties. HAMLET, a complex of LA and oleic acid has been used in treating cutaneous papillomas. 

Chronic Fatigue: Colostrum fulfils the nutritive deficiencies seen in chronic fatigue syndrome enhancing both strength and stamina. The body of a person with chronic fatigue is deficient in immune and growth factors which help our bodies fight off disease and heal damaged body tissues. MIP colostrum provides the body with natural growth factors and immune factors that bring about homeostasis in the body, thus promoting health and wellbeing.
Colostrum contains the broadest possible spectrum of biologically active substances that promote a sound body and it has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties as well. MIP colostrum also relieves stress which can have an uplifting effect on the ‘constantly tired’ person with CFS. Proline-Rich Polypeptides (PRP) found in colostrum tones down an overactive immune system which causes allergies and consequently CFS.

Diabetes: Colostrum provides adequate nutrition with numerous minerals, vitamins and antioxidants to help your body overcome the metabolic stress that diabetics face. Lactoferrin is a single chain metal binding glycoprotein which act on various cells having lactoferrin receptors. Lactoferrin in MIP colostrum reduces body weight and reduces blood glucose levels as reflected by HbA1C. It is also known to reduce blood pressure and control hypertension. Lactoferrin helps to effectively manage metabolic functions. 

Digestive System: Colostrum is considered nature’s perfect food having all the natural building blocks for optimal health and vitality. MIP colostrum helps the body utilize energy efficiently whislt also improving the immune system. Colostrum ensures the shift of fuel utilization from carbohydrates to fats, reducing body fat in the process. Lactoferrin in MIP colostrum enhances reduces blood sugar levels to normal. MIP colostrum also protects the gut lumen with the immunoglobulin contained in it. 

Energy & Vitality: Colostrum is energy-rich and contains the widest array of biologically active substances that promote a healthy mind and body. It also renders passive immunity to various infections. The growth factors present in MIP colostrum give a boost to growth and energy. MIP colostrum helps you manage weight by utilizing fat stores for energy.

Fibromyalgia: Recent research has provided us with some good scientific evidence for the use of colostrum for fibromyalgia. Research has shown that around a third of fibromyalgia patients have low levels of IGF-1, meaning their GH's levels are low. 
Better still, a study which focused on injecting women with fibromyalgia and low IGF-1 levels with daily GH's resulted in these women experiencing an improvement in pain levels and better energy and stamina. Daily injections aren’t a great option in the long term, though. How about a dietary source of the missing IGF-1?
Enter colostrum as a dietary supplement! Colostrum is a powerful source of immunoglobulins and growth factors including IGF-1.

General Health & Wellbeing: Colostrum is considered nature’s perfect food - containing plenty of proteins, carbohydrates, fats and various bioactive compounds including growth factors that help tide over the stressors of daily life. MIP colostrum is rich in various antibodies, anti-inflammatory substances, and antioxidants that are essential to prevent oxidative stress. It also enhances the body’s potential by improving metabolism and immunity and its ability to ward off infections. This improves your general health and wellbeing. Daily supplementation with NutriNZ MIP Colostrum capsules or powder will help in attaining a state of good general health and wellbeing.

Gout: Colostrum is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that can assist in the management of gout. MIP colostrum helps prevent inflammation and swelling in the affected region. The acute inflammatory state during a gout attack is caused by an army of white blood cells which cause swelling and intense pain. LMW peptides are certain amino acids present in MIP Colostrum which prevent the white blood cells from assembling at the affected joint, thus preventing acute gout from happening. Colostrum also contains numerous pain-controlling proteins which provide relief to the gout patient.
MIP colostrum also prevents NSAID-induced (pain killer induced) gut damage which is an added bonus for a patient troubled by gout.
MIP Colostrum is a very powerful natural supplement that provides vital nutrients which act to prevent pain, inflammation and swelling while promoting early recovery of the affected joint. Try NutriNZ's MIP Colostrum over a period of at least 6 weeks, doubling the recommended dosage for that time for best results.

Immune System: Colostrum contains numerous immunoregulatory agents that boost your immune system. Milk fat globules in MIP Colostrum contain immunoglobulins, proteins, and enzymes that enhance your immune system. Antibodies against various enteric bacteria and viruses assist in immunity of your gut. Secretory IgA, lysozyme, lactoferrin and oligosaccharides are various antimicrobial agents in colostrum. There are also numerous immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant molecules in MIP Colostrum that enhance your body’s immune functions.

Inflammation: Colostrum contains epithelial (skin) GH's (EGF) that stimulates accelerated healing of tissues and its powerful anti-inflammatory agents can eliminate swelling and pain seen in arthritis, gout and irritable bowel syndrome. It also has antibacterial and antioxidant properties that assist the healing process and negates the side-effects of the inflammation. MIP colostrum is rich in cell protectors, epithelial growth factors such as EGF, lactoferrin, polyamines, cortisol, enzymes that degrade inflammatory mediators, lactoferrin, lysozyme to elastin, α1-antichymotrypsin, inflammatory leukocyte modulators and antioxidants such as Uric acid, β-carotene, ascorbate. Overall, MIP colostrum has anti-inflammatory properties beneficial for the body.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Its beneficial properties can be extrapolated in any individual providing immunoglobulins that increase gut immunity. It also heals the lining of your gut, particularly benefitial for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It has anti-inflammatory substances that help in prevent bowel inflammation and reduce pain. 

Joint Pain & Mobility: Colostrum contains numerous growth factors which are instrumental in repairing skin, muscles, and cartilage, thus helping joint pain and mobility. Collagen production is increased which cushions the joints and improves joint health. MIP Colostrum is also an anti-inflammatory that prevents pain and swelling of the joints and improves mobility. Colostrum’s immune factors are potent antibacterial and antiviral agents and prevent or eliminate infections in external injuries such as cuts, burns, abrasions, and surgical wounds.

Leaky Gut Syndrome: It is rich in antibodies which work against various pathogenic bacteria and viruses that harm the gut wall. Colostrum is seen to reduce the frequency of diarrhoea and provides symptomatic improvement in E. coli infection. The antibodies within MIP Colostrum are effective in killing Helicobacter pylori, which is responsible for most of the gastric ulcers. It also prevents damage induced by NSAIDs, commonly taken for chronic pains. Growth factors such as Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and anti-inflammatory substances in colostrum can also help in healing of the leaky gut walls. 

Multiple Sclerosis: One of the most important factors in managing Multiple Sclerosis is avoiding infections, as the immune response required to fight off pathogens frequently provokes further autoimmune attacks on the nervous system. The immunity and growth factors present in MIP Colostrum help bolster the immune system’s defences to keep you well; at the same time, a substance called proline-rich polypeptides or PRPs works to modulate or ‘calm down’ the immune system to prevent further attacks on the myelin. The complex growth factors in MIP Colostrum may also help to repair the damage caused by previous MS attacks, and reduce the severity of damage when an attack does take place.
Along with the specific benefits of taking MIP Colostrum for Multiple Sclerosis, you enjoy the overall boost to wellbeing that makes management of any chronic health condition easier to face. MIP Colostrum may help to reduce the fatigue and ‘brain fog’ common to MS sufferers, improve energy levels, and reduce muscle pain and tightness – very positive steps in coping with this often-debilitating disease.

Muscular Health: Colostrum helps to build muscle 100% naturally in three important ways: It prevents muscle protein from breaking down, it increases the synthesis of protein and it recruits satellite muscle cells that add size to muscle fibres. How? MIP Colostrum contains two important compounds that work together to accomplish the building of lean muscle mass, IgF-1 and GH. IgF-1 is a small peptide with a more potent anabolic effect than any known compound including all types of steroids. During exercise, IgF-1 is the signal which triggers muscle cell proliferation. IgF-1 works hand in hand with GH for the building of lean muscle mass. In many studies Colostrum has been proven to improve lean muscle tissue growth, improving muscle recovery and reduce soreness. In these studies, it’s important to note that testosterone levels did not increase, making it an incredible supplement for women too!

Nutrient Uptake: MIP Colostrum is an anti-ageing dietary supplement that is rich in growth factors, immune factors, and actual nutrients that provide energy in an easily digestible form. It will help you attain equilibrium in your body. It modifies the metabolism within the liver so that the body burns fat and thus helps in building lean body mass. If you are interested in improving your body’s energy utilization, try out NutriNZ's MIP Colostrum Capsules and Powder.

Sport: Colostrum is a potent natural anti-inflammatory supplement and stamina booster. It manages your weight by utilising fat as the primary source of energy and also maintains your physique by increasing lean body mass. The antimicrobial and immunomodulatory role of MIP colostrum prevents various infections and loss of training days.

Stress: Colostrum fulfils the nutritive deficiencies that come with stress and exhaustion. It has been found to increase energy levels as well as improve moods during periods of anxiety and stress. Natural growth factors and immune factors bring about homeostasis in the body, supporting a healthy nervous system, thus promoting health and wellbeing. 

Thyroid Disorders: Colostrum provides you numerous biological substances for a sound body and mind. It is also a well-established fact that MIP Colostrum contains Immunoglobulins, which when given enterically exert a wide variety of functions. 

Virus, Bacteria & Parasites: Colostrum is one proven nutritional supplement for immune system health. Recent research suggests that for some people, colostrum may in fact be a better treatment for preventing infectious disease than vaccination. Vaccines, while largely beneficial, do carry the risk of side effects which can occasionally be severe, so many people are drawn to more natural methods of boosting immunity to common infectious diseases. Bovine colostrum is packed with powerful antibodies called immunoglobulins, as well other biological compounds important to a healthy immune system. As well as being an effective supplement and regulator for the immune system, by taking MIP Colostrum daily you benefit from improved gut health and nutrient uptake and a boost to general wellbeing, helping you ‘fight the good fight’ against viruses, bacteria and parasites.

Weight Management: The growth factors present in MIP Colostrum are responsible for its enhanced ability to metabolise or ‘burn fat’ and to build lean muscle mass which are essentials for a healthy body. Besides these, it rejuvenates the skin, muscle and organs while also improving immunity of the individual.

NutriNZ MIP Colostrum is not just for humans:
Animal Health: Some animals struggle with weaker immune systems that leave them prone to numerous illnesses, as well as slowing their recovery from injury. NutriNZ MIP Colostrum supports the immune system, particularly promoting gut health and it is renowned for reducing inflammation, thus being very beneficial in the treatment of arthritis. Not only is MIP Colostrum a powerful animal health supplement for internal problems, you may use it to aid the healing of your pet’s external wounds by sprinkling or dabbing it on the affected area.

The NutriNZ Advantage:

When you shop for colostrum supplements, you will find that there are numerous terms used to describe the type of colostrum that is being sold by the brand or company in question. There are important factors that can affect the quality, effectiveness and absorbability of the colostrum. This can affect how beneficial the colostrum is for you and your loved ones as well as how large the daily recommended intake is – which could result in you paying more!
For example, the method utilised to collect and process the colostrum, as well as where the cows come from (due to country specific farming standards and practices) all play an important role in the end quality of the product.

People shopping at MIP Colostrum will notice that we often note the fact that our MIP Colostrum offers our customers “The New Zealand Advantage” – here is why:

Seasonal Advantages

New Zealand colostrum is only produced during a single three-month period every year. During this limited period of time, the best source of Colostrum is from the early milk (first 2 milkings) of pasture fed, non-hyperimmunised, healthy New Zealand cows. The temperate climate combined with our farming practices make New Zealand the absolute best supplier of Colostrum. Furthermore, New Zealand dairy products are renowned worldwide for their quality and consistency in both manufacturing and supply.

Same Day Processing Ensures Biological Activity

MIP Colostrum is collected and transported in a fresh chilled state from farms straight to the processing plant. This is made possible due to the aforementioned seasonal advantages, so there is enough stock for same day processing. This is a critical production advantage, because gentle handling, low temperature collection and same day processing technology preserve the active ingredients of MIP Colostrum. Calf’s needs are always met first.
Other colostrum’s are collected in batches (especially 6 hour colostrum), until there is enough to process. This means it must be stored for long periods of time before processing can commence, so it is frozen. Rapid freezing and rapid thawing techniques prior to processing cause damage to the protein molecules, which in turn compromise the biological activity of the Colostrum.

Sourced from the South Island of New Zealand

MIP Colostrum is sourced from grass-fed cows so they spend their time in the outdoors and are never placed in any location that would restrict the amount of space that is available to them.

Increased Immunity of New Zealand Dairy Cows

Year round grass fed New Zealand dairy herds develop stronger immunity to a wider range of pathogens than those which are fed processed feed, receive sBST supplements or are kept indoors. This is because pasture raised cows are more exposed to the elements.

Free of Nasty GMO, Pesticides and Antibiotics

Cows can be from any part of the world, be it the United States, Africa or – in our case – New Zealand. Every country has different regulations and practice standards that overlook and monitor the raising of cows. Strict New Zealand quality standards ensure New Zealand MIP Colostrum is free from preservatives, antibiotics and other food additives. It is also free of rBST, which is not licensed for use in dairy cows by the NZ FoodSafety Authority. MIP Colostrum contains no genetically modified organisms, plants or animal products.

Our vegetarian capsules are made from cellulosic raw materials that satisfy both vegetarian and cultural needs. These vegetable capsules are easy to swallow, starch-free, gluten-free and preservative-free so they meet the strict dietary needs of customers that choose a vegetarian lifestyle.

Quality Assurance

Strict quality control procedures are enforced during the manufacturing of MIP Colostrum. Final product is sampled and tested for chemical, sensory and microbial parameters using internationally recognised procedures in an ISO 17025 certified laboratory. During storage and shipment, precautions are taken to ensure that product quality is maintained. Each package is giving a batch number to enable trace back. Manufacturing premises operate under a Risk Management Programme approved by NZ Food Safety Authority. This programme incorporates a HACCP programme and certification to ISO 22000 and 14001. The bottling plant is GMP certified.

These high standards of production means we supply the highest quality Colostrum supplements.

Active Ingredients:
100% Pure and Undiluted New Zealand Bovine MIP Colostrum Powder: 500g per bag
(IgG 22-27%)

No Added:
Artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. It is free of rBST and free of GMO (genetically modified organisms).

Major Bioactive Components found in MIP Colostrum
In animals where maternal antibodies do not pass the placental barrier (bovine, horses, pigs, and sheep), the young are passively immunised immediately after birth by way of Colostrum. In these species the maternal antibodies present in the Colostrum are absorbed directly through the gut in the first few days following birth.

Bovine Colostrum is the only form of Colostrum that is not species specific allowing humans to benefit from the numerous immune and growth factors contained within. The most important components of colostrum can be broken down into three major categories: Immune System Factors, Growth Factors, and Nutritional Components.

1. Immune System Factors
Proline-Rich Polypeptides (PRPs): Proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) act systemically, modulating the complex immune system and are therefore the most important ingredient in colostrum. They work as hormones that regulate the thymus gland (bodies central command for the immune system), stimulating an underactive immune system or down-regulating an overactive immune system.

Immunoglobulins (IgG, IgA, IgE, IgM, IgD): The average IgG amount in MIP Colostrum powder is around 20-25%. Immunoglobulins are also known as antibodies. These small proteins are used by the immune system to seek out and destroy foreign antigen invaders. Laboratory analyses of both immune and growth factors from bovine colostrum indicate that they are identical to those found in human colostrum except for the fact that the levels of these factors are significantly higher in the bovine version. Bovine colostrum is actually 40 times richer in immune factors than human colostrum. For example, human colostrum contains 2% of IgG (immunoglobulin G) while cow colostrum contains 86% of IgG, the most important of the immunoglobulins found in the body.

Lactoferrin: Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein that helps deprive bacteria of the iron they require to reproduce and releases iron into the red blood cells enhancing oxygenation of tissues. Lactoferrin modulates cytokine release and its receptors have been found on most immune cells including lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages and platelets.

α - Lactalbumin and β – Lactoglobulin: These are the major nutritional whey proteins in milk and colostrum.

Cytokines: Cytokines are small proteins that are secreted by specific cells of the immune system. They are proteins, peptides, or glycoproteins and are a category of signalling molecules that are used extensively in cellular communication.  They help to boost T-cell activity, and help to regulate the bodies response to exercise and other stimuli.

Lysozymes: Lysozymes help support the immune system.

Enzymes: Lactoperidase-thiocyanate, peroxidase, and xanthine oxidase oxidize bacteria through their ability to release hydrogen peroxide.

Glycoproteins: Glycoproteins are a digestive factor that has been shown to help immune and growth factors survive the passage through the highly acidic digestive system.

2. GF's
Colostrum contains many growth factors, Including GF-1 and IGF-2, EGF, FGF, PDGF and transforming GF'salpha β (TGA-α and TGF-β). Every cell in our body has an IgF-1 receptor. IgF1 allows each cell to enter an active stage. This means that the cell can then heal itself or replicate. The GF's in Colostrums are the most widely researched and reported in the world today. Naturally produced by a young and healthy body but decreasing with age, GH's replacement shows outstanding promise in reversing or slowing the aging process. GF's are very small bio-active molecules which promote growth and maturation of various cell types and tissues. They are found in very high concentrations in MIP Colostrum. They not only stimulate normal growth and development but also help regenerate and accelerate the repair of aged or injured muscle, skin, bone, cartilage and nerve tissues. GF's also help build lean muscle and have been shown to have a positive effect on athletic performance. This is why MIP Colostrum is increasingly being used in bodybuilding regimes. 

3. Nutritional Components
Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, and Essential Oils: Colostrum is a combination of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are naturally occurring in a perfect combination. Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, and E are found in small amounts while traces of all other vitamins, as well as minerals such as calcium, sodium, magnesium and zinc, are also present in colostrum. Colostrum is a rich source of both essential and non-essential aminoacids, as well as essential fats, including phospholipids, which enable colostral protein protection and easy absorption in the gut by forming liposomes around them.

MIP Colostrum is the ultimate in preserving all the natural transfer factors, increasing and enhancing the bioavailability of the Immunoglobulines to us.

Dosage:
Adults: 1 Teaspoon (2g) Daily
Either dissolved in half a glass of lukewarm water or in fresh juices, shakes etc. 
Double the amount in case of environmental, physical or mental stress. 

After Sport: Take an additional teaspoon right after exercise or training to enhance recovery.

Additionally, if you have any cuts or irritation on your skin you could sprinkle some of this powder on the affected area. If you are suffering from any oral problems like sensitive gums or teeth, you can put some powder along the line of your affected gum or teeth and let it dissolve. MIP Colostrum can also be gargled to aid an inflamed or sore throat.

Children: 
Between 2 - 5 years of age - 1/4 Teaspoon (0.5g) Daily
Over 5 years of age - 1/2 Teaspoon (1g) Daily

Note: It is important for new customers to bear in mind that everybody’s metabolism and absorption rate varies. Most supplements can take up to 3 months to make a difference. We advise you to consider this for your order.

Caution: 
Seek medical advice if you are taking prescription medication or pregnant. 

Animals:
To use, simply sprinkle some MIP Colostrum powder in their dish. Once they try MIP Colostrum on their food they won’t eat it without it. 
Small dogs and cats: 1 tsp daily
Medium to large dogs: 1 tsp twice daily (morning and night)
Horses: 2 tsp twice daily (morning and night)

MIP Colostrum Consumption

 

What if I’m lactose intolerant?

The amount of lactose in Colostrum is 163 mg in two capsules compared to 13,000 mg in one 8-oz of milk. We normally recommend starting slow with colostrum consumption (1 capsule before breakfast = 500 mg per day) and allow the body to begin the necessary enzymatic production and balance itself. You can overcome the intolerance to lactose as well as many other intolerances through the use of MIP colostrum.

Can I take MIP Colostrum with other supplements and medications?

MIP Colostrum actually helps your body and works to regulate your body’s absorption rates. It heals the digestive tract so well that all substances eaten internally (food, herbs, natural healing substances and medications) are more enhanced in terms of their bioavailability to the body. Although MIP Colostrum has no known drug interactions, you may find that the other supplements and medications that you are taking could have a more pronounced effect.

Should MIP Colostrum be taken when pregnant?

MIP Colostrum will not hurt you or your fetus, but you should check with your health care professional first. Once your baby is born it would be beneficial to start taking MIP Colostrum right away as it will help boost your immune system which suffers during child birth. It will help you recover faster and it will also help you bounce back into shape.

How can MIP Colostrum help Children?

Due to the fact that children do not possess a very well developed and strong immune system MIP Colostrum has proven very beneficial to children. The consumption of MIP Colostrum boosts their immune cells and enables them to combat various illnesses and diseases. It further helps in developing and maintaining the gut wall so that they can take in more nutrients. MIP Colostrum has several Growth Factors that aid in encouraging a healthy physical growth as well as mental development of your child. For children under 12 months old we suggest to consult your physician.

General Information

How does MIP Colostrum work?

The main function of MIP Colostrum in a newborn is to aid in the transfer of passive immunity from the mother to the child. The mother has been exposed to a variety of environmental factors and organisms during her lifetime to which her immune system has produced antibodies. In the transfer of passive immunity the mother passes on her produced antibodies to her child. The mother passively immunises her young in utero by passing the antibodies through the placenta. In animals where maternal antibodies do not pass through the placental barrier (horses, cattle, pigs, and sheep), the young are passively immunised immediately after birth by way of Colostrum. In these species the maternal antibodies present in the Colostrum are absorbed directly through the gut in the first few days following birth.

Why choose New Zealand Colostrum?

New Zealand Colostrum is recognised as the world’s premium Colostrum. Why? Because it is collected only from pasture-fed cows that are pesticide, antibiotic and rBST free. New Zealand has a strong competitive advantage in Colostrum production due in part to New Zealand’s dairy cows all calving during a single three-month period every year.

New Zealand Colostrum is collected and transported in a fresh chilled state from farms to the processing plant. This is a crucial production advantage, because gentle handling, low temperature collection and same day processing technology preserves the natural active ingredients of MIP Colostrums. In other countries, Colostrum is collected in batches until there is enough to process (especially 6 hour colostrum). This means it must be stored for long periods before processing, so it is frozen. Rapid freezing and rapid thawing techniques prior to processing can cause damage to the protein molecules and can compromise the integrity and biological activity of the immunoglobulins, growth factors and other biologically active components.

The best source of Colostrum is from the early milk (first 2 milkings) of pasture fed, non-hyperimmunised, healthy New Zealand cows. The temperate climate combined with our farming practices make New Zealand the absolute best supplier of Colostrum. Furthermore, New Zealand dairy products are renowned worldwide for their quality and consistency in both manufacturing and supply. Strict New Zealand quality standards ensure New Zealand MIP Colostrum is free from preservatives, antioxidants or food additives. It is also free of rBST, which is not licensed for use in dairy cows by the NZ Food Safety Authority. MIP Colostrum contains no genetically modified organisms, plants or animal products.

Why choose Bovine Colostrum?

Bovine Colostrum is the only form of colostrum that is not species specific. In other words, it can significantly benefit all mammals, including humans of course. Because calves are born without any immunity to airborne, disease-causing organisms, their mothers Colostrum must contain a very large amount of immune and health factors. As a result bovine Colostrum has 10 – 21 times the factors of human Colostrum, making it the richest source of Colostrum available. MIP Colostrum is the ultimate in preserving all the natural transfer factors, increasing and enhancing the bio availability of the growth and immune factors to us.

When is MIP Colostrum collected?

MIP Colostrum is collected at the first milkings from selected healthy, pasture feed dairy herds . After calving, the calf is left with the cow for 8-12 hours to ensure the calf has had sufficient colostrum. Only the rest of the first and second colostrum milkings are collected for same day processing. We make sure the calves get their fill first.

Should Colostrum be pasteurised?

Absolutely! Cow manure can easily splash onto the udders contaminating them with E-coli, salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria. This creates the potential for contamination of dairy products. MIP Colostrum powder is a natural, spray dried product made from fresh, at 72 degrees pasteurised colostrum which contains IgG and other bioactive components.

Do the Immunoglobulins and Growth Factors in MIP Colostrum survive pasteurisation?

Tests have been carried out on MIP Colostrum (which is flash pasteurised at 72°C for 15 seconds) that show that the MIP Colostrum retains its bioactivity during this process.

How does MIP Colostrum differ from plain milk?

MIP Colostrum not only contains all the goodness of milk but also contains significant levels of growth promoting and disease fighting substances commonly referred to as growth factors, immune factors and immunoglobulins. MIP Colostrum has a much higher protein, vitamin, mineral content and is lower in lactose.

Why there is sometimes variation between MIP Colostrum batches.

New Zealand Colostrum is a seasonal product only collected three months of the year (August to October). Accordingly, it is possible that there is some variation between batches in consistency, colour, solubility and taste. Importantly, the biological activity and it’s benefits remain the same.

Why is fat removed from MIP Colostrum?

The fat should be removed for two reasons:

1) because it does not contain any biologically active proteins. In fact by removing the fat, the concentration of the biologically active proteins (generally IgG is the one measured) is increased.

2) fat is prone to oxidisation, so the shelf life would be reduced if it was present.

Why doesn’t MIP Colostrum have a protective coating?

Research has shown that the molecular structure of bovine colostrum is identical to human colostrum. So why would we put a coating around a substance that is identical to breast milk? Uncoated Colostrum is a very successful aid for the whole digestive system including the stomach lining and tissues.

Colostrum contains Non Specific Inhibitors that inhibit a wide range of respiratory illness, notably Influenza viruses. Colostrum is specifically cited for its unique effectiveness against potentially deadly outbreaks of Asian Flu viruses that emerge from animal/human mutations.
Drs. Shortridge, et.al.; Journal of Tropical Pediatrics

Glycoproteins, in bovine Colostrum, inhibit the attachment of the Helicobactor Pylori bacteria that cause stomach ulcers. Colostrum contains significant amounts of Interlukin-10 (a strong inflammation inhibitory agent), found significant in reducing inflammation in arthritic joints and injury areas.
Dr. Olle Hemell, at the University of Ulmea, Sweden; Science

Immunoglobulins (found in Colostrum) are able to neutralize the most harmful bacteria, viruses, and yeasts.
Dr. Per Brandtzaeg; Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences

Clinical studies show that IgE (Immunoglobulin), found in bovine Colostrum, may be responsible for regulating allergic response.
Drs. Tortora, Funke & Cast; Microbiology

Immunoglobulin in colostrum has been used to successfully treat: Thrombocytopenia, Anemia, Neutropenia, Myasthenia Gravis, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Systemic Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bulluos Pamphigoid, Kawasaki’s Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Crohn’s disease, among others.
Dr. Dwyer; New England Journal of Medicine

PRP, in bovine Colostrum, has the same ability to regulate activity of the immune system & Thymus gland. It activates an under active immune system, helping it move into action against disease-causing organisms. PRP also suppresses an overactive immune system, such as is often seen in the autoimmune diseases. PRP is highly anti-inflammatory and also appears to act on T-cell precursors to produce helper T-cells and suppresser T-cells.
Drs. Staroscik, et. al.; Molecular Immunology

Colostrum contains Retinoic Acid which helps fight Herpes Virus. Also contains Glycoprotein (kappa casein) that protects against the bacteria that cause stomach ulcers.
