Colostrum is a natural superfood produced by all mammals in the first 48-72 hours after giving birth. For 300 million years, it has served the vital function of protecting and strengthening the mucosal barriers of infants before their own barrier matures.
Colostrum has been called “liquid gold” because it acts as an immune blueprint with unparalleled health benefits. To date, there are over 5,000 published studies documenting the benefits of colostrum and its ability to optimize health at all stages of life. Colostrum intake has been linked to fewer respiratory tract and GI infections in children and adults, including recent studies showing bovine colostrum is 3X more effective than the flu vaccine at preventing flu.*
1 superfood ingredient. 200+ functional bioactive nutrients. 1,000s of health benefits.
ARMRA Colostrum is an unrivaled nutrient powerhouse with over 200+ pure bioactives. Bioactives are natural molecules that promote healthy functions throughout the body. These compounds include a host of protective antibodies, prebiotic compounds, strengthening peptides, amino acids, trace minerals, immunoglobulins, tissue growth factors, antioxidants, and other natural immune factors that work synergistically to enhance all facets of health.
Low Temperature Extraction
We leverage proprietary, minimal heat technology to distill colostrum’s over 200+ functional nutrients in their most natural and bioavailable form, ensuring maximal efficacy in the body.
ARMRA’s process begins with the purest bovine colostrum from grass-fed cows raised on family-owned U.S. dairy farms. Our responsible sourcing means we only collect overflow colostrum after baby calves finish feeding and receive all the nutrients they need.
Perfectly Matched For Health
We remove unnecessary compounds from bovine colostrum like casein and fat, and enhance the concentrations of essential bioactives, certifying the highest potency colostrum on the market and only one optimized for human health.
Secretory immunoglobulin A (SigA) is the most abundant antibody at mucosal surfaces in the respiratory and GI tract and plays a crucial role in immunity. It is considered “antiviral” and “antibacterial” because it binds and neutralizes viruses and bacteria, preventing them from reaching the barrier surface. SigA also intercepts allergens and toxins. In research studies, SigA has been found to inhibit influenza and rotaviruses, and neutralize toxins from bacteria like C. difficile and E. Coli. Additionally, SigA plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis of the helpful gut bacteria (microbiome).
Immunoglobulins like IgG are antibodies that are present in the bloodstream, but also play an important role along the mucosal surfaces. They can recognize and bind to specific, harmful particles like viruses and bacteria to block them from crossing the barrier. They play an integral role in the body’s first-line immune response.
Lactoferrin acts as a non-specific, first line defense against disease-causing particles through several mechanisms. It can bind directly to particles to destroy them, can intercept them, may recruit other immune cells when a threat is perceived, and is also able to induce an anti-inflammatory response. In research, lactoferrin has been shown to have a strong anti-viral effect against the influenza virus. It also helps maintain a tight seal between the cells of the mucosal barrier.
Milk oligosaccharides are a unique, whole food prebiotic that can't be found anywhere other than in colostrum. Structurally, they are short chains of sugar that pass undigested through the GI tract. They are the most complete form of prebiotics and reach the large intestine where they serve strictly as a food source for bacteria and feed the whole body microbiome. Unlike other prebiotics, milk oligosaccharides have been shown to preferentially feed the bifido- species, increasing counts of strictly the helpful populations of the bacteria in the microbiome. Milk oligosaccharides also replenish the protective layer of mucous to maintain homeostasis and protection at the mucosal barriers.
Sialic acid (SA) is a small sugar found on surface molecules throughout the body. It plays a key role in cellular interactions, allowing cells to recognize one another and transmit vital information. It also plays an important role at the mucosal barrier, binding to harmful particles and preventing them from crossing inside. SA is most abundant in the brain, where it provides structure, modulates neural development, and is involved in learning and memory formation. Deficits in SA have been linked to aging and several brain diseases.
Growth factors are proteins that promote cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Colostrum is a potent source of growth factors and has been shown to have powerful efficacy in healing wounds, building muscle, and maintaining the skin's elasticity. Colostrum is also the only natural source of the two major growth factors transforming growth factors alpha and beta (TGF-a, TGF-b) and insulin-like growth factors 1 and 2 (IGF-1, IGF-2). Colostral IGF-1 increases lean muscle tissue and when used during exercise, switches cellular fuel from sugar to fat, increasing the body’s fat burning capacity.
Increase in longevity, and protection against inflammation, in immune cells & 17% in gut cells
Stronger and more rapid anti-bacterial immune defense activity than other colostrum
Hour onset for anti-bacterial immune protection
Faster regeneration of the gut barrier, even under inflammation
We source our colostrum from family-owned dairy farms throughout the USA. When the weather permits, the cows have access to the outdoors - fresh air and sunlight - and forage on grass as much as possible. In the winter months, they may receive forages such as dried grass, hay & alfalfa or wet plant material like silage and other green-feeds. They never receive antibiotics or hormones.
ARMRA Colostrum is strictly responsibly-sourced. Cows produce more colostrum than their calves can consume and this surplus is considered a waste product in the dairy industry. Instead, ARMRA upcycles it to ensure that calves get fed all they need first and no colostrum goes to waste.
Gentle, low-heat technology is used to distill over 200+ functional nutrients, guaranteeing the highest bioactive integrity and bioavailability.
Not all colostrum products are created equal. ARMRA is physician-developed and the only colostrum product on the market optimized for human health.
We use gentle, low-temperature extraction technology to distill over 200+ functional, bioactive nutrients in their most pure and bioavailable form, ensuring maximal health benefits. Other products on the market add binders, like maltodextrin, to enhance the dissolvability of their colostrum. But ARMRA is pure - with no artificial fillers or additives ever.
ARMRA's proprietary formulation takes out what isn’t needed and combines more of the immune factors that are needed. This extraction process paves the way for the most potent and nutrient-dense product, and the one best matched for the human body. ARMRA contains no fat and no casein, the most common allergen in those with dairy allergies.
