it is widely used in anti-aging medicine.
It is critical to realize, however, that not all
colostrum is the same. Some brands may call their
products “colostrum” but may come from milkings
other than the very first milking within six to eight
hours after birth. Some take the second and even third

New Zealand, the chemical composition of
their colostrum powder is very different. A
comparative compositional analysis of Immune
Tree and New Zealand colostrum powders at
Minnesota Valley Testing Laboratories, a premier dairy testing service, produced the following findings expressed in graphic form.
The material in the middle set of bars, identified as Ideal Colostrum Powder was a carefully
prepared powder made from a large pool of
colostrum that was collected within six hours
after birth of the calf. Comparison of these
results with each of the tested products clearly
demonstrates the differences between these
products. The colostrum powder from Immnue
Tree (AK Colostrum Powder) is virtually identical
in chemical composition to the Ideal Colostrum
Powder. In sharp contrast, the New Zealand
Colostrum Powder has most of the fat removed
and the relationship between the remaining
components has been dramatically altered.
