Colostrum is the world’s most powerful superfood. It has tens of thousands of clinical studies to back its incredible performance. Fresh, raw colostrum contains more than over 200 bioactive components but up until recently, processed colostrum could not compare.
The quality and thus, effectiveness of colostrum depends on three factors– the colostrum source, the testing and verification of active components, and the Liposomal Delivery (LD) system.
“If your colostrum is heat-dried, not end product tested for bioactivity and does not have the LD (Liposomal Delivery) reapplied to the dried colostrum, it is no more effective than powdered milk”.
-Andrew Keech, PhD
With 24 years of research supporting it, PRO Colostrum-LD is the finest and most biologically active bovine colostrum on the market. PRO Colostrum-LD is the only bovine colostrum that is as close to fresh, raw colostrum with the highest potency possible, but without the risks of unpasteurization or contamination.
Our herds live, graze, and give birth in the Southwestern United States which provides the colostral antibodies most applicable to pathogens affecting North American consumers. Sovereign Laboratories only accepts colostrum from the first milking, which is produced within 2-12 hours of the calf’s birth. This first-milking colostrum contains peak quantities of proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs), lactoferrin, growth factors, immunoglobulins and other active immune components. Approximately 18 liters of first-milking colostrum is collected and about 4 liters are fed to the calf after its birth. Sovereign Laboratories harvests the remaining 14 liters.
The dairies supplying colostrum to Sovereign Laboratories are located in the Southwestern United States (CA, AZ, NM) and the temperate climate allows for year-round calving. This is important not only because we can collect fresh colostrum year-round, but more significantly, because circulating pathogens vary throughout the year, and maintaining current and relevant colostral antibodies helps protect humans from current viral and bacterial strains. Unlike many other manufacturers, we process colostrum on a weekly basis.
PRO Colostrum-LD is flash pasteurized 15 seconds at 161? F to kill any bacteria but without destroying any of the colostrum’s living components. It is then dried in an ambient air process (for shelf life) to ensure that all of its components are intact and bioactive.
Sovereign Laboratories’ colostrum undergoes rigorous testing in our FDA licensed facility to ensure that every batch contains the specified quantity of twenty active components necessary to induce the desired health benefits. Any product that does not achieve the quantity and quality of components is rejected and returned for animal consumption. The components for which we consistently monitor include PRPs, lactoferrin, TGF (Transforming Growth Factor), IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor), IgA, IgG, and other immune and growth factors.

Sovereign Laboratories takes a great product and makes it a superior product. Our proprietary in-house Liposomal Enhanced Delivery (LD) system is an applied coating which allows colostrum to readily dissolve in liquids and ensures the colostrum will bypass digestion; will be transported through the bowel wall; will circulate throughout the body; will reach the organs and cells; and remain bioavailable at the cellular level.
The Liposomal Delivery Difference means:
With regular consumption of PRO Colostrum LD’s broad spectrum healing components in a stabilized and enhanced Liposomal form, patients may expect the following:
