I’m always a bit nervous trying a powdered drink, as they tend to be chalky. This is not the case here. I started with the smallest amount of recommended water which is 4 oz and added the 1 teaspoon. (Depending on the results you are looking for the directions vary) The water should be lukewarm. The powder dissolved easily and to my surprise tasted fine. It actually tastes, in my opinion, like watered down milk. I drank is quickly and it went down quite easy. It has not been a problem adding this supplement to my routine. I also tend to have issues with milk products, but have had none with this product.
From the Website:
Colostrum-LD® is a targeted immune support supplement designed for daily use in people of all ages. Colostrum provides critical bioactive components that assist the human immune system to perform the functions it was designed to do. Bovine (cow) colostrum is an ideal supplement because it is plentiful and biologically transferrable to humans.
Colostrum-LD® contains first-milking bovine colostrum that has been flash pasteurized, low heat dried, and instantized for maximum safety, solubility and efficacy. Proprietary LD Liposomal Delivery™ ensures that colostrum’s bioactive components can survive transit through the digestive tract and are well-absorbed into the bloodstream. Colostrum-LD® is certified to contain a minimum of 25-30% immunoglobulins, 1.5% lactoferrin, 1.5% growth factors and 3.5-5% colostrum peptides (PRPs).
Colostrum-LD® is suitable for lactose-free diets.
VitalC-LD® (120) 520mg :
- Liposomal Delivery for Advanced Absorption
- Sustained Release
- Supports the immune and nervous systems†
- Superior Benefits Compared to Other Brands
Vital C-LD® is a proprietary preparation of ascorbic acid with citrus bioflavonoids and lipid metabolites from natural vegetable sources (Liposomal Delivery). Liposomal Delivery is important to the bioavailability of the Vitamin C, and increases it up to 1500% versus vitamin C without Liposomal Delivery. Liposomal delivery is essential for the vitamin C to travel intact through the stomach and into the intestines by which the specific lipid metabolites contained in Vital C-LD® enhance its entry into the cells.†
