Please be very careful about
making the decision to take ANY Transfer Factors, Bovine or Colostrum products! Many LLMD’s and naturopathic doctors recommend adding these to help boost our immune systems. Pure colostrum, prior to diseased cows and sheep is an amazing immune system booster. But unfortunately, the colostrum we are buying is not healthy anymore and can cause severe health issues, especially for those of us already suffering with low immune systems. I don’t care how expensive or how pure the product claims to be, “organic or grass fed”, do not trust the label or that the product isn’t contaminated. Common methods to eliminate disease causing organisms like heat, do not kill prions in processing. I am a vegetarian but, I have now contracted “mad cow disease” also known as “prion disease” or “Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD)” from taking two of these supplements. Within days I had dizziness, ringing in my ears, the usual brain fog and fatigue all worsened once I started taking a Transfer Factor and an Adrenal supplement to help with my Lyme disease. What I read and contributed these symptoms to was a “Herx”, but it wasn’t a herx at all. Now I’m trying to survive Lyme disease and what can possibly be a fatal prion disease. Please read and do your research prior to taking any colostrum or bovine powder, pill or supplement. I wouldn’t trust any brand out there. This includes some of the most recommended and trusted by doctors such as; Researched Nutritionals, Pure, 4Life, Ancestral, Nutricology, Thorne, Life extensions, Standard Process, Pro Boost etc. And again, those are some of the top rated, so certainly would not recommend any other brands you might find on Amazon, which will be even more likely to be contaminated. Some of these companies like Standard Process, sell many supplements containing bovine organs such as, liver, spleen, brain, thyroid, adrenal glands, etc., which are from slaughtered cows which can, and do, carry these prion diseases. There is not enough information out there unfortunately. Similar to Lyme, the statistics of people who have contracted a prion disease is much lower than reported. There are many supplements out there from herbs that can help boost your immune system that you won’t have to take such a high risk from. Please pass along.
