Just bought Colostrum....

I got the Vitamin Shoppe brand, and it doesn't say anything about first milking, but it has 475mg of colostrum, and gelatin and water as other ingredients. Do you think this will work? I'm really excited to try it!

Re: Just bought Colostrum....

I don't understand the principle behind colostrum for weight loss. Can you explain? It seems to me that it would be extremely difficult to duplicate colostrum unless you are a woman who has just had a baby. I'm not being a smarta$$ or anything. I just don't understand the reasoning behind this nor do I understand how they can sell colostrum. But hey, if it works, let me know.

Re: Just bought Colostrum....

Please tell us about your results. I want to know, too, what is the deal with colostrum possibly effecting weight loss. The most I read was about it helping to build lean muscle tissue. Is that what's going on?

Re: Just bought Colostrum....

The Colostrum is From Cows...not Humans...so that is how it can be sold.

Its main Benefits seem to be for the Immune System....but supposedly can help with weight loss......I have my doubts.

Unless it affects your appetite or Some how makes you burn more calories then it is not likely to do anything.

I love how so many Prodeucts are Hyped to do something but they never seem to give the science behind why it works or what exactly it does.

Re: Just bought Colostrum....

I just read that about it coming from cows. So in other words, the calves aren't getting their fair share of it. Hmmm, not very fair IMO.
I don't see how it can help with weight loss though. I do see how it can help with immunity.
