I would think that the less processed, the better. Ditto to AuroraB: can you do goat's milk?

    I recently tried some (bovine) colostrum with probiotics (Symbiotcs brand) and felt pretty good overall, but didn't help with my chronic constipation as far as I can tell. May resume with goat colostrum (Mount Capra brand) when I'm done with my current trial of senna teas.

    My cow's milk intolerance is a 'moderate' intolerance. I tend to get congested eating dairy.

    The strange thing is, I'm currently in NYC and have been eating some dairy here and there and I haven't had the same symptoms as I do back home. Not to the same extent anyway. Weird, huh?

    Is the stuff expensive? I probably won't be able to find it back home, because Canada is LAME.

    Colostrum is only useful if you are a baby animal of the same species.....

    Can you use Vitacost? It's about $30 for 120 capsules of CapraColostrum. On their website (mtcapra.com), it's almost $40, or around $60 for 174g of powder (not sure how many servings that would be though). I'm going to get the 120 capsule bottle and try it out for a full month ("strenuous" dose is usually 3x the regular one, so this will actually only last 20 days).

    Tell that to my constipation, which improved while taking colostrum capsules.

    colostrum is high in sugar and fat. It will clean your gut. Mag citrate will do the same thing, give you a needed mineral, and not cost half as much.

    Mag citrate doesn't do that for everyone. Myself included.

    Tasha, I can use vitacost. I just wonder if I get slapped with some dumb fee because it may be considered 'dairy'.

    I have the same problem with mag citrate. Vitamin C works better for me (for the same reason that mag citrate is supposed to), but I have to taken absurd amounts of it (not sure what it is right now, but over 10g per day) for motility.

    Chris Kresser says mag citrate isn't as absorbable as....ummm....I forget which mag he recommends :-o

    Vit C used to do the same for me but not anymore.

    Sorry to say but that is totally incorrect information. Colostrum is most helpful to boost the immune system, lean muscle mass, digestive issues, athletic recovery and so much more
