Colostrum – Healthy, natural & strengthening
- Colostrum strengthens the immune system
- Colostrum is rich in antibodies & nutrients
- Colostrum nourishes and rehabilitates the intestinal microbiome
Have you heard of colostrum and aren't quite sure what it is and how it can help you? We at BE THE CHANGE produced the first 100% cold-processed Swiss colostrum preparation and are pioneers for high-quality and sustainable colostrum from Switzerland.
What is colostrum and what effects does colostrum have? Where does it come from and why is it so healthy and important for our body? We would like to explain this and much more to you here, especially why colostrum is good for our intestinal health and why you should make sure that it has been cold filtered.
Mother Nature’s evolutionary genius – colostrum
What is colostrum?
Colostrum will too
referred to as “Biestmilch” or “First Milk”. It is the first substance released after pregnancy in a mammal, e.g. B. from a female cow or a woman to whom the newborn is given. This unique first milk is the first strengthening food of every mammal to make the new creature resistant and able to survive by supplying it with valuable antibodies, proteins, amino acids, vitamins and much more.
Colostrum contains particularly valuable immunoglobulins, commonly known as “antibodies”. BE THE CHANGE has harnessed the essential benefits of colostrum and its immunoglobulins in the form of “Colostrum & Probiotics” in a sustainable and animal-friendly manner and made the valuable active ingredients available bioactively. The antibodies and probiotic bacteria contained in colostrum strengthen our immune system and care for our intestinal microbiome.
The effect of colostrum
The positive effects of colostrum for the intestines and human health are scientifically proven and particularly diverse. Colostrum supports our immune defense through its natural effectiveness in a completely original and natural way. Bovine colostrum (cow colostrum) is also attributed by researchers to have an antibacterial effect. The lactoferrin contained in colostrum has properties that remove iron from bacteria.
We have put together the three most important effects of colostrum for you here:
1. Immune system support with colostrum
As we age, the efficiency of our immune system decreases, which is why an intake of immunoglobulins (antibodies) and other valuable nutrients makes sense for adults. Especially in stressful times or after illness, adjusting our diet and taking additional colostrum can help us feel better. The antibodies (immunoglobulins) contained in colostrum and the numerous nutrients support both our specific and non-specific immune systems throughout our lives.
2. Antibacterial effect of colostrum – natural resistance
The lactoferrin contained in colostrum has properties that remove iron from bacteria, which is why colostrum has an antibacterial effect in the body. Iron is vital for bacteria, which is why the pathogens die when the iron is removed from them by lactoferrin. This antibacterial effect can have a positive effect on fighting pathogens.
3. Colostrum for diseases
Colostrum neutralizes free radicals and activates our immune cells. When too many free radicals cause “oxidative stress,” it can lead to numerous medical conditions, such as: B. arteriosclerosis, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and arthritis. Colostrum has an antioxidant effect. Immunoglobulins from colostrum can potentially help prevent disease or
to counteract these.
Nutrients in Colostrum:
- Immunoglobulins - antibodies
- amino acids
- Growth factors
BUY COLOSTRUM – Sustainability
& origin are fundamental
If you want to buy colostrum, you should definitely pay attention to high quality and animal-friendly origin. We at BETHECHANGE work exclusively sustainably and with dedication and respect for animals and people. The integration of regenerative and organic agriculture is a given. Each of our products is optimally tailored to human biochemistry. Accordingly, our colostrum capsules are of the best quality.
The cow also produces excess colostrum in organic dairy farming. This means that our calves first get more than enough to drink before the farmer skims off some of the excess that the calves no longer drink as a supply and carefully freezes it. After skimming off the supply, a few liters of colostrum remain that are not used for milk or cheese processing. Reputable and animal-friendly producers only collect this excess colostrum.
We therefore work exclusively with selected farmers who...
Respectfully care for and lovingly care for the calf and the mother animal in terms of their nature and their natural needs.

Product questions about colostrum
WHY IS SWISS IMMUNE® COLOSTRUM & PROBIOTICS GOOD?
How is colostrum good for the immune system?
Our immune system is our body's defense system. It fights harmful pathogens and cells so that we don't get sick and stay healthy. Many of us initially cannot imagine anything when it comes to the terms “immunoglobulins” and “colostrum”. Immunoglobulins is the technical term for the so-called “antibodies” in our body. The unique “first milk” is the first strengthening food of every mammal to make the new creature resistant and capable of survival by supplying it with these valuable antibodies. That's why colostrum has an even more concentrated mixture of valuable nutrients and antibodies that support the immune system even more than the breast milk produced later.
Colostrum for the intestines & the intestinal microbiome
Our intestinal flora is part and main player of our immune system and houses health-maintaining bacteria that are important for our immune system. The gut microbiome refers to the total number of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and archaea, that live in our digestive tract, particularly in the intestines. Colostrum, the first milk produced by mammals after birth, contains a variety of bioactive substances such as immune factors, growth factors and antibodies that can support the gut microbiome. These components in colostrum can promote the growth and activity of healthy gut bacteria, strengthen the intestinal barrier, and have anti-inflammatory effects, which can contribute to healthy gut function.
Immunoglobulins or antibodies in colostrum?
Immunoglobulins is the technical term for the so-called “antibodies” in our body. Antibodies are an indispensable and essential part of our specific immune system. Our antibodies, the immunoglobulins, are proteins and have the shape of a Y, which cannot be seen even under a microscope because they are so small - they are invisible to us humans with the naked eye. Colostrum contains antibodies (immunoglobulins) and numerous other nutritional values and supports both our specific and non-specific immune systems throughout our lives.
What is colostrum?
The term colostrum refers to the unique first milk or whey. It is the first strengthening food of every mammal to make the living being resistant and able to survive.
The antibody-rich colostrum is only produced by a mother in the first 18-36 hours after birth and is then replaced by conventional breast milk. Colostrum also looks different than breast milk as it is thicker and yellowish.

Experiences with colostrum
The experience with colostrum is convincing – both from science and from consumers. It is not for nothing that the evolutionary development of mammals created this little wonder of nature, colostrum, which offers us impressive health benefits.
Numerous people report online about their experiences with colostrum, which they successfully take to cure and support intestinal health, and they report great improvements. Colostrum can also be taken preventatively, for example to counteract the next flu season or cold.

COLOSTRUM – CONSUMPTION RECOMMENDATIONS & DOSAGE
Take 2 × 2 colostrum capsules daily without chewing with sufficient fluid.
Recommendation: We recommend taking the colostrum capsules daily for two months to regenerate the intestines and support the immune system. The need for continued intake depends on the individual intestinal condition.
Keep the colostrum capsules out of the reach of small children and store them in a cool, dry place and protected from light. The specified recommended daily consumption of colostrum must not be exceeded.
Colostrum dietary supplements are not a substitute for a varied and balanced diet or a healthy lifestyle.
IMPORTANT: Colostrum should not be taken with hot drinks or alcohol. The sensitive ingredients in colostrum can otherwise be denatured by heat and alcohol.
