This Week's Most Popular Pin from Pinterest:
NatureColostrum Goat’s Milk Colostrum Supplement is a unique and non-allergenic form of colostrum, which is the life-giving fluid produced as a precursor to mother’s milk. It can be described as a brilliantly designed transfer system which basically “jump starts” your immune system. In addition to giving you a bulletproof immune system, healing a leaky gut and enhancing muscle repair, recovery and growth hormone formation, colostrum can completely eliminate gut issues in athletes during exercise if you load with it for about one to two weeks prior to hard and heavy exercise, such as an Ironman triathlon or marathon – especially if that exercise is in hot weather.
