    I'll admit, I'm quite lost by that comment.
    I grok, therefore I am.

    Don't bother with the colostrum. The evidence just isn't convincing. Stick with produce, optimal serum levels of 25(OH)D, a very good Ω3:6 ratio, good probiotics a few times per week and if you're just itching to spend on supplements, there is a solid body of evidence for grapeseed extract, pycnogenol, CoQ10, vitamin c.

    Are you having any issues in particular that you're trying to deal with?

    I've seen people obtaining human colostrum "at source" so to speak. Quite disturbing.

    Trying to get clearer skin, it's just cosmetic, but I'm wondering if it has anything to do with my gut health... I was on quite a low-fat, high-carb diet with LOTS of fiber, I ate fiber at ANY opportunity because I thought it was "necessary". (No, my bowel movements were not the greatest.) So I'm thinking... That maybe I did some internal damage... And plus some people can have that "leaky gut syndrome" (MAN I hate that term!) without any symptoms. Do you take probiotics? I'm waiting for the mother to get out of the shower to head to the health food store, was undecided on what I should pick up...

    Ahhh, for skin stuff, it usually means you need more zinc, vitamin D and sometimes a little vitamin A. A little. Like 10,000 IU every 10-14 days.

    Have a look at my supplements doc, linked below - it shows my favorite (quality, cost, value etc) supplements, incl zinc, D and maybe A.

    Leaky gut repairs readily with a good diet and probiotics - and really it's probably not your issue. Skin/hormonal stuff is so driven by zinc, D and A.

    I've written about that also....linked below.

    You know, it's not as bad as you'd think. :P I've admittedly tried boobie milk in my adult years (when the wife was breast feeding of course).

    Hey!

    I was excited to see pb peeps talking about this! I've been taking colostrum for the past few months, with some pretty great results! Totally fixed up my gut, my skin looks amazing, never get sick, etc. I'm still on my first container, so I'm sure I'll notice more benefits as I continue my use.

    Personally, I use Daniel Vitalis's "Surthrival" colostrum. It's THE BEST colostrum on the market as far as I'm concerned, unless of-course you live near a farm and can get it fresh.

    Here's a great video talking all about colostrum, and it's benefits.

    Part 1:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c67I...eature=related

    Part 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZ-Cu...eature=related

    There's also a great audio on one radio network where Daniel talks about colostrum, wild foods, and medicinal mushrooms. I think you have to sign up (it's free) with one radio network to listen to the podcast.
