Easy Muscle Mass Increase For
Average People and Body Builders
Colostrum Helps Athletes and Average People Burn Fat and Build Muscle
Athletes and those who work out and exercise regularly and seriously are always looking for ways to
enhance their performance and get better results.
According to both clinical research and anecdotal evidence, colostrum may be the most potent natural
substance yet discovered that helps athletes get the results they want. In fact, many bodybuilders and
exercise experts say that colostrum is the most effective muscle-building agent they have ever used —
without resorting to illegal (and dangerous) steroids.
Writing in Iron Man Magazine (a journal for serious bodybuilders), Daniel Shawn states that the IGF-1
(insulin-like growth factor) found in colostrum “. . . has a strikingly more anabolic effect than any known
compound, even steroids.”
IGF-1 is able to “promote muscle growth by itself”, writes Steve Schwade, Associate Editor of Muscle &
Fitness, in their May, 1992 issue. “Bovine colostrum has a higher concentration of IGF-1 than human
colostrum”, he continues, “and its structure is virtually identical. Human IGF-1 and bovine IGF-1 differ by
only three amino acids in the 67-amino-acid chain that makes up the IGF-1 molecule. Because of this
similarity, bovine IGF-1 is just as potent as the human form.”
Schwade goes on to quote current research showing that colostrum slows protein breakdown, and “. . .
stimulates glucose transport in muscle.” This means that muscles make more efficient use of the fuel
available to them.
When it comes to fat metabolism, the growth factors in colostrum “shift fuel utilization from carbohydrate
to fat. This doesn’t mean you can eat more fat. But it does mean that your body will burn more fat,
including fat made from the carbohydrate and protein you eat, producing fuel more efficiently.”,
Schwade’s summary: “The bottom line is that the growth factors (in colostrum) speed protein
synthesis and slow protein catabolism (protein breakdown), leading to an increase in lean
muscle mass without a corresponding rise in adipose tissue.”
Again, Daniel Shawn from Ironman Magazine: “Plain and simple, IGF-1 is the end-all and the be- all
of anabolic peptide growth factors. "
Even average people who don't work out regularly see definite improvments when they start taking
colostrum. It generally reverses aging in your body and restores more youthful levels of hormones and
muscle mass increase is a result. This is not just a product for serious athletes. It is a serious product for
anyone who is seeking to return to more youthful states in their muscle mass, skin tone, resistence to
illness and more. For the serious athlete, however, there is no better product.
One satisfied customer said, " I am able to handle more weight in my workouts and I add weight
faster as time goes by. I recover more quickly after doing a weight-lifting “set” and can go on
to the next exercise sooner. I am energized after my workouts, whereas before colostrum, I
would be fatigued for an hour or so after working out. And the results are improving — my
pants are getting looser and my shirts and jackets tighter! And all this without any major
changes to my diet (I’m a pretty healthy eater, anyway)."
Recently, more studies have been performed with athletes. Writing in Nutrition Science News in May of
1996, Edmund Burke, Ph.D., reports on research involving the Finnish Olympic Ski Team. “The
athletes worked out extremely hard and their blood creatine-kinase levels were monitored
over a seven day period. Creatine-kinase is a critically important muscle-cell enzyme that has
been shown to be a marker of muscle-cell damage if detected in the blood. Thus, when blood
creatine levels rise, it is often a sign of significant muscle damage. Compared to team
members who drank placebos, the athletes who consumed a colostrum drink showed
roughly one half the blood creatine-kinase levels four days after acute exercise.” They also
said, subjectively, that they were less fatigued and that their performance seemed to have improved.
In the same article, Burke goes on to say that colostrum also “improves athletic performance
through the gut.” Colostrum enhances assimilation of nutrients through the intestines and thus
increases the efficiency of carbohydrate and amino acid uptake. Also, the growth factors in colostrum
help “seal” the gut from ulceration which reduces the efficiency of uptake. So what happens when taking
colostrum is that more of the nutrients from the food you eat can be utilized as fuel for exercise, whether
of the cardiovascular or muscle-building variety.
The benefits of colostrum are great news for those of us who exercise regularly but who haven’t been
seeing the results they want.
The added good news is that while you are fine tuning your muscle mass you will also be taking one of
the most effective steps you can take toward prevention of future illness. Colostrum is so healing that
taking it while healthy is a poweful preventive stance. Prevention is the most pleasant Health Care
choice a person can make. It is also the smartest choice we can make. NOTHING works as well as
PREVENTION, and nothing is as cost effective as PREVENTION and nothing on the market is as
potent as an overall body healer and sustainer of good health as pure 6 hr colostrum. Colostrum is
your best choice for preventive health.
