Colostrum side effects
of colostrum is usually very well tolerated. Side effects are extremely rare
and usually affect people who are sensitive to cow milk. In such a case
it might be helpful letting the powder slowly dissolve
in the mouth. You can read about detailed serving recommendations here.
1. Colostrum and cow milk allergy
People with an allergy to cow milk proteins will not tolerate cow colostrum products
well. However they have a good alternative with goat or sheep colostrum. The
proteins in these mammals have a different composition and are smaller
compared to those of the cow colostrum. Sheep and goats colostrum are therefore
better tolerated and considered hypoallergenic.
2. Colostrum and lactose intolerance
in QuraDea colostrum products is enzymatically reduced to <0.1g per 100g powder during processing.
Therefore almost all our colostrum products are
lactose free and people with lactose intolerance can digest them without any problems at all. The exception are the two unpasteurized products cow colostrum optimal and cow colostrum lightyam that both contain all of the lactose. If you are not sure about milk protein allergy
and/or lactose intolerance we will be happy to advise you on the phone: +41 41 281 0202.
3. Colostrum and type II diabetes
contains insulin and the growth factor IGF-1 which have an effect on the metabolism and blood sugar content.
Diabetic patients should therefore start with their colostrum supplementation very slowly and carefully in order to
keep their blood sugar levels stable. Please discuss the issue with your doctor. You are also welcome to call us for a consultation during normal business hours.
4. Colostrum and cancer
can support the immune system and alleviate side effects during chemo- or
radiotherapy. Yet for hormone sensitive cancers such as breast or prostate cancer colostrum is contraindicated. Please
discuss it with your oncologist.
