Colostrum Whey Boosts Immunity
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.—An extract from colostrum whey rapidly improved immune defense mechanisms in humans in a study conducted by NIS Labs.
A double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over human clinical pilot study found consumption of a bovine colostrum whey extract Immunel™, manufactured by Sterling Technology Inc., rapidly improved activation and function of immune cells participating in anti-bacterial and anti-viral defense mechanisms. This included improvement of phagocytic activity and immune surveillance by natural killer cells. Effects reached statistical significance between 1 and 2 hours after consumption in a ‘within-subject’ analysis comparing each study participant’s response to product versus placebo.
