Sovereign Laboratories – ‘World’s Best Most Effective Colostrum’
Sovereign Laboratories is an Arizona based company who specialize in producing the most effective colostrum supplements in the world. The founder of Sovereign Laboratories, Douglas Wyatt, has devoted himself to this task and to colostrum research for twenty years.
The simplest explanation of why we benefit from colostrum is this: As soon as people reach adulthood, the ‘aging’ process begins, as the human body begins to produce lower levels of the immune and growth factors that help our bodies heal and combat disease. The levels of these immune and growth factors decreases substantially with each passing year. Colostrum is a natural whole food source of these incredibly powerful immune and growth factors, which are essential for people to survive and thrive.
There has been extensive research conducted on colostrum for its benefits to human health in the past 30+ years. The published scientific papers number in the thousands. The studies continue for the potential of colostrum to treat many illnesses’ including the following:Autoimmune diseases Intestinal damage caused by NSAID- type anti-inflammatory drugs Gastrointestinal conditions such as Leaky Gut Syndrome Alzheimer’s disease Infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and influenza
Studies have shown colostrum to have many properties including the following:Natural Anti-inflammatory Natural Anti-biotic Natural Anti-viral Natural Anti-microbial Natural Anti-parasitic
Some additional researched effects, properties and attributes of colostrum are as follows:‘Anti-aging’ Weight loss due to improved fat metabolism Asthma Support Allergy Relief Faster recovery from injury and stress Sport and fitness benefits Less susceptibility to colds and flu’ Balanced blood sugar Improved maintenance and healing for body tissues including muscle, bone, cartilage and collagen Smoother skin with greater elasticity Increased bone density Increased mental alertness Improved immune system function and overall health
The story of how Doug Wyatt began his journey with colostrum is very compelling. His passion and dedication to provide colostrum to the world is understandable given his very personal experience with the healing capabilities of colostrum. At the time when his journey began, Doug found that there was no source for commercially available colostrum supplements for human consumption in North America. It is largely due to his efforts that the profound healing benefits of colostrum are available to us today.
Why is Colostrum from Sovereign Laboratories the Best?Healthy Cows Collecting takes place at the right time The nutrient-rich bioactivity of colostrum is safeguarded by correct, rigorous and precise treatment during processing Liposomal Delivery Coating – getting the healing factors past the stomach acids intact
Sovereign Laboratories (SL) knows that the effectiveness of colostrum depends on its quality, and on how it is sourced and processed. Bearing that in mind, we must begin our assessment with the cows.
Start with the cows
SL insists that the dairies they deal with provide documentation that the cows providing the colostrum are veterinarian certified to be healthy. All the colostrum comes from pasture fed Grade ‘A’ dairy cows in the Southwestern United States. The cows are certified to be free of BST (Bovine Somatotropin), a synthetically manufactured hormone which some milk producers inject into dairy cows to increase milk production. The cows are also certified free of the neurological disorder, BSE, and free of antibiotics, pesticides, and hormones.
SL being located in temperate Southwestern U.S. is able to collect colostrum year round since calving takes place year round. This means that they are able to supply fresh colostrum products year round.
SL uses only ‘first milking’ colostrum, gathered only after, the newborn calf has had their fill – usually about a gallon over the course of a few nursing sessions.
This ‘first milking’ colostrum contains the highest levels of immunoglobulins and Proline-rich Polypeptides as well as other important nutrients.
The calf will receive all of the colostrum that it needs for a healthy life within the first few times that it nurses. A half hour after birth, the calf will drink about 2 litres of colostrum and then another 2 litres (approx.) after that. The remaining approximately 14 litres of ‘first milking’ colostrum is then collected in up to a 16 hour period after the birth of the calf.
The cow will continue to make colostrum for approximately 36 hours after the birth of her calf before she will transition into making milk. The colostrum that she makes after the birth of her calf is not considered ‘first milking’ colostrum. It still has immunoglobulins, Proline-rich Polypeptides and other powerful nutrients; just in smaller quantities that the calf will continue to benefit from.
State of the Art Processing Facility with Clinical Laboratory Onsite Highly Qualified/Educated Team Members Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP’s) Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Procedures (HACCP) 300 Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) 32 Camera Monitoring System Testing and Analysis at Each Stage of Processing Low Heat Flash Pasteurization Low Pressure/Low Heat Indirect Steam Drying Final Checkpoint guarantees that bioactivity (effectiveness) has been preserved Liposomal Delivery Coating
“All of our colostrum products are manufactured in the most technologically-advanced colostrum production facility in the world, the only plant dedicated solely to the manufacture of colostrum for human consumption.” – Sovereign Labs
SL’s colostrum manufacturing facility has a U.S. Government registered clinical laboratory onsite with state of the art equipment to ensure best quality colostrum whole food supplements. The manufacturing process and clinical lab operate under the direction of a highly qualified industry leader who possesses a PhD. in biochemistry plus dairy processing experience. Four lab technicians who each hold Bachelor degrees in chemistry or microbiology assist this team leader. SL also keeps a licensed pharmacist on staff.
Throughout this impressive process, SL follows over 300 Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s). Additionally, they utilize a 32 camera monitoring system in the facility, which gives senior managers another important tool to oversee and record their procedures.The first step is that the raw colostrum arriving from each dairy is tested (the first of many tests and analyses in their process.) This first test ensures that the raw colostrum is indeed from the ‘first milking’ and is free of pesticides, antibiotics, hormones etc. The levels of immunoglobulin IgG, Proline-rich Polypeptides and other nutrients in each batch are measured and quantified by High Performance Liquid Chromatography Testing and Mass Spectrometer Testing. Additional analytical chemistry and microbiology tests are completed and strict documentation protocols are followed. In order to preserve the bioactivity of the colostral proteins and immunoglobulins, SL processes the colostrum very carefully. Their methods include low heat flash pasteurization, and low pressure/low heat, indirect steam drying. Then, they complete more testing and analysis, as they do after every step of the process. Then, they apply the Liposomal Delivery coating, which is clinically proven to ensure that the colostrum makes it from the stomach to the GI tract and into the blood stream.
The SL team conducts final testing prior to shipment – The final assurance that the bioactivity of the colostrum (hence its effectiveness) has indeed been preserved.
“Liposomal encapsulation has a proven ability to enhance usability and bioavailability by up to 1,500% or more”. Robert D. Milne MD
Sovereign Laboratories completes all of these measures in order to provide the world’s best colostrum to you. As a result, of following these strict protocols, Sovereign Laboratories Colostrum LD carries the following assurance:
GMP certified: Standardized: The only colostrum certified to contain a minimum of 25-30% Immunoglobulins, 1.5% Lactoferrin, 1.5% Igf-1 and 4-5% Proline-rich Polypeptides (PRP’s)
Doug Wyatt pioneered the production of colostrum whole food supplements in North America, and is dedicated to providing the best.
Colostrum is what Sovereign Laboratories does. They exemplify the adage of,
“do one thing, and do it well”.
If I had to sum up this article in one sentence, then I would tip my hat to both Sovereign Labs and to the Doobie Brothers and say that,
Sovereign Labs is definitely
“doin’ it right”
