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 in infants before their own barrier matures. Colostrum has been called “liquid gold” and more analogous to an immune booster than a food because its nutritional value pales in comparison to the health benefits it confers. To date, there are over 5,000 published studies documenting the benefits of colostrum for optimizing health at all stages of life.
Yes. All ARMRA cows eat grass. We source our colostrum from small, family-owned 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. Depending on the nutritional needs of the animals and the time of year, they sometimes also receive a small amount of supplemental, non-gmo grains. In general, the majority of the cows' diet is grass.
Our cattle never receive antibiotics or hormones.
Also, ARMRA's colostrum is ethically-sourced. We make ARMRA strictly from overflow colostrum, which means that baby calves get all they need before any colostrum is collected.
Not all colostrum products are created equal. ARMRA is physician-developed, patented colostrum that is the only product on the market perfected for human health.
We use gentle, cold-extraction technology to distill over 200+ functional, bioactive nutrient in their most pure, potent, and bioavailable form to ensure maximal health benefits. Other products add fillers, like maltodextrin, to change the dissolvability of their colostrum. But ARMRA is pure - with no artificial binders or additives ever.
Also, ARMRA's patented formulation takes out what isn’t needed and combines more of the immune factors that are needed to ensure nutrient-dense and potent levels of the essential bioactives for health. That makes it a better match for the human body. ARMRA contains no fat and no casein, the most common allergen in those with a dairy allergy/intolerance.
And we pride ourself on our sourcing practices. All ARMRA colostrum comes from healthy, grass fed cows, with no antibiotics or hormones, and is ethically-sourced from small family farms throughout the USA.
ARMRA is a whole superfood, not a list of ingredients - just pure, grass fed bovine colostrum distilled to its most natural, potent, and bioavailable form. It contains no fat and no casein, the most common dairy allergen, while including higher concentrations of the bioactives essential for human health.
Our patented formulation and gentle cold-extraction technology ensure that the over 200+ functional, bioactive nutrients retain their natural structure and integrity for optimal effect. These bioactive compounds include strengthening peptides, protective antibodies, antimicrobial peptides, prebiotic compounds, amino acids, vitamins, trace minerals, immunoglobulins, tissue growth factors and antioxidants for complete immune support and whole health benefits.
ARMRA is specially formulated to contain increased levels of beneficial compounds, such as:
SigA (aka secretory immunoglobulin A) is the most abundant antibody at mucosal surfaces in the respiratory and GI tract, and plays a crucial role in immunity. It is considered “anti-viral” and “anti-bacterial” because it binds and neutralizes viruses and bacteria, preventing them from reaching the barrier surface. It also intercepts allergens and toxins.
In research studies, SigA has been found to inhibit the assembly of flu virus and rotavirus, and it neutralizes toxins from C. diff and E. Coli.
Additionally SigA plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis of the microbiome.
Immunoglobulins like IgG play an important role as antibodies along the mucosal surfaces. They can recognize and block specific, dangerous particles like viruses, bacteria, and toxins to block them from crossing the barrier.
Lactoferrin acts as a non-specific, first line of defense against disease causing particles through several mechanisms. It can directly bind particles and destroy them, bind and intercept them, recruit other immune cells when a threat is perceived, and also induce an anti-inflammatory effect. In research, lactoferrin has been found to have a strong anti-viral effect against the influenza virus. Lactoferrin also strengthens barrier integrity.
Milk oligosaccharides are short chains of sugar that pass undigested through the GI tract. They reach the large intestine and there, serve strictly as a food source for the healthy population of bacteria (microbiome). They increase counts of these helpful bacteria and replenish the protective layer of mucous to enhance defense at the mucosal barriers.
Yes, ARMRA does contain lactose. As such, it is recommended that those with lactose intolerance who wish to try the product take it with lactase enzyme.
No. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates prescription and over-the-counter drugs. ARMRA, however, is an all natural product that is food-grade and 100% drug-free.
Even so, we manufacture ARMRA in an FDA-certified facility to adhere to the strict requirements of the FDA, and use Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) to ensure the highest standards of testing, safety and quality.
ARMRA works to strengthen the body's mucosal barriers, including those that line the nose, sinuses and lungs. And, ARMRA contains potent, anti-inflammatory immune factors and supports a healthy microbiome throughout the gut and respiratory tract. While other allergy products on the market suppress "symptoms," ARMRA addresses the root cause of what triggers them in the first place. Because allergens cross into the body through the lungs (like with pollen) or gut (like with food allergens) ARMRA provides support for these pathways.
ARMRA supports complete urinary tract health. It strengthens the mucosal barriers that line the bladder and urinary tract, contains anti-bacterial immune factors, and builds a healthy microbiome throughout the urinary tract.
Absolutely! ARMRA is derived from dairy colostrum, which is a naturally occurring food for newborn infants. Colostrum has a long history of well-researched use in infants, children, the elderly and all ages in between. Additionally, there are no known interactions with colostrum, as it is a food. However, since ARMRA is derived from dairy, it is not advised for use by those with lactose intolerance.
Since ARMRA is derived from dairy, it is not advised for those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergy.
That said, ARMRA does not contain casein protein (the most common culprit for those with a dairy allergy). Additionally, most dairy intolerance is is related to the way that dairy is processed - with high heat manufacturing and pasteurization which changes the shapes of the proteins, rendering them unrecognizable to the body. This is what triggers inflammation and digestive issues. ARMRA, though, uses gentle cold-extraction technology that retains all of the peptides and bioactive nutrients in their natural and bioavailable state. As such, ARMRA is actually anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic. Many users with dairy intolerance opt to try ARMRA and tolerate it very well.
Of course, it comes down to personal preference. ARMRA is derived from colostrum, a dairy food. India’s spiritual leaders, the “Rishis” have included colostrum in their vegan diet for many thousands of years. Colostrum has traditionally been considered in a class of its own - neither animal nor plant.
ARMRA original is entirely pure with nothing added. Unlike other colostrum products on the market, which go through chemical processing steps in order to make them more dissolvable - we opt out. Because of its purity, ARMRA can tend to clump in liquid.
Since it has no taste it is easy to incorporate into almost anything as long as it isn't hot, as this can degrade the natural, bioactive compounds. Most people enjoy ARMRA in a thick beverage, like a smoothie, or mixed with things like yogurt, granola, or chia. But it can be sprinkled into any other food or drink.
If you prefer to take ARMRA original in straight liquid, like water or juice, we recommend whisking it in a very small amount of liquid first to dissolve it before adding it to the rest of your beverage.
ARMRA blood orange is a zesty flavored option that can be stirred into water to make a refreshing drink.
