MIP Colostrum is 100% pure and undiluted Colostrum. Sourced from healthy, pasture-fed New Zealand cows living their whole life outdoors and are free from pesticides, antibiotics and synthetic hormones. Herds are mostly grass-fed, except in very dry summer periods where farmers might feed hey or grain (NZ is GM free); our livestock is not forced to live in confinement and endure the miseries of factory farming.
MIP Colostrum is an incredible natural source of proteins, immunoglobulins, growth factors, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and nucleotides.
After calving, the calf is left with the mother cow for 8-12 hours to ensure the calf has had sufficient colostrum. Only the first and second colostrum milkings are collected for processing.
MIP Colostrum is collected and transported in a fresh chilled state from farms to the processing plant. This is a critical production advantage, because gentle handling, low temperature collection and same day process technology preserve the active ingredients of MIP Colostrum. It is pasteurised to satisfy the most demanding International Standards (72ºC for 15 seconds), so that the highest microbiological quality is assured. 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 before processing, so it is frozen. Rapid freezing and rapid thawing techniques prior to processing cause damage to the protein molecules compromising biological activity.
A unique energizing process is applied to the MIP Colostrum powder in the bottling plant to ensure optimal biological activity. This process ensures the optimal activity of biological components in MIP Colostrum and enables the body to absorb these components as a whole.
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.
The purity and enhanced biological activity of MIP Colostrum means that you get significantly better and faster results. You only need one to two capsules or 1 tsp powder per day whereas other products can require you to take up to 4 times as much.
