Colostrum is a nutritional substance, produced by mothers for their newborns, that supports the immune system. For centuries colostrum has been used by most cultures for overall wellness. Now with the latest research and technology, quality colostrum can be produced with precision to ensure a pure and potent product.
Tegricel® uses the latest technology to produce a pure, potent colostrum that supports immune function and intestinal health. It provides a perfect combination of immune and growth factors including immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), amino acids, and other important nutrients.
Tegricel® Colostrum comes from healthy, nutritionally supplemented cattle raised in the U.S. on USDA and FDA certified dairy farms. These cattle are carefully fed a scientifically designed diet that contains the proper balance of legumes and grasses, along with minerals and trace minerals to ensure consistently high potency colostrum.
Supplement Facts Serving Size: 1 capsule Servings Per Container: 90
Amount per Serving Colostrum (as Tegricel) 575 mg
Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose, soy lecithin (an emulsifier).
**Tegricel product does contain lactose. It contains roughly around 9-9.5% lactose which per capsule (about 52-55 mg). This small amount is not removed because it would require the potential denaturazation of the active compounds. If someone is extremely lactose intolerant they may have an issue but in most cases we have not seen this to be a problem.
Recommended Use As a dietary supplement, take one capsule daily or as directed by your health care practitioner.
What Makes Tegricel Colostrum Different? All Tegricel® Colostrum comes from cattle raised in the United States and is produced from healthy, nutritionally-supplemented cows on USDA and FDA certified dairy farms. These cattle are carefully fed a scientifically-designed diet that contains the proper balance of legumes and grasses along with minerals and trace minerals to ensure consistently high potency colostrum.
Colostrum has been shown in studies to support:
the digestive system
lean body mass
the immune system
vitality and athletic performance
the normal growth, regeneration and repair of muscle
bone cartilage and nerve tissue
HPLC High Performance Liquid Chromotography is a technique used in biotechnological research as well as for the pharmaceutical and nutriceutical industry. Modern HPLC has many applications including separation, identification, purification, and quantification of various compounds. HPLC is used to perform the optimum analysis of compounds in each batch of colostrum to ensure efficacy.

Immune factors and growth factors are the primary components of colostrum. Bovine colostrum performs the following roles in the protection of the gastrointestinal tract: maintains integrity of mucosa, protects against intestinal permeability, aids local immunity, systemic immunity and antigen handling. It has also been used in treatment as well as prevention of NSAID-induced gut injury.Indian J Pediatr. 2005 Jul; 72(7):579-81
