What is Ultra Colostrum?
Ultra Colostrum is a bovine derived food supplement which contains proteins, immunoglobulins (Ig), vitamins, amino acids and other growth factors (IGF-1 & 2).
What are the Benefits of Ultra Colostrum?
Ultra colostrum is collected from the cow in excess and is only taken once the calf has received a full feed. The care of the infant is the producer's foremost consideration, whereby its needs always come first. The farms used for the collection of our colostrum are heavily monitored and governed by the local government and dairy industry.
Ultra Colostrum is freeze dried to ensure none of the essential nutrients are compromised. This thorough process ensures Ultra Colostrum is a fresher and more nutrient dense product when compared to lesser, spray dried colostrum collected over the first 48 hours after birth. Ultra Colostrum has high levels of Ig, standardised to 30% Ig.

After using 3 very good batches of colostrum from my protein I have received 3 batches that claim to be colostrum but are not. The volume is inflated, the constistency like chaulk and it does not mix - producing loads of foam and a lot of lumps. White in colour rather than the pale gold colour and doesn't even mix in milk! I would not recommend this product or the customer relations who have so far not dealt with the complaint in a satisfactory manner
After being assured of a new batch following 2 bad batches of colostrum... My new bag arrived and it was obvious it was more of the same. The bag looks ready to explode as other reviews have also indicated its gone from a golden yellow powder that is sticky and mixes well to a bulky chalk like powder that does not mix with water or milk. It even had a bleach aftertaste. Makes me question whether the supplier is even providing my protein with colostrum at all! It would be interesting to see what the analysis says. I did notice an improvement with the good batches in terms of immunity and recovery. It's fair to say that is not apparent at all with the last 3 batches.
I have been receiving this product for the last year, and all of sudden it like they have changed the Recipe or how they cultivate the Colostrum. It's gone from a fine creamy substance that smells great, to a thick white gloopey mess that tastes horrible and doesn't mix at all. I'm certain what I used to receive was rich colostrum but this last batch could have been anything, it tasted like chalk and I doubt was in any way nutritious. It definitely wasn't the same product.
My first batch of Ultra Colostrum (500g) was excellent... just received a new batch (250g) and I'm sorry but this is not colostrum! The texture, smell and taste is completely different. I won't be ordering this again.
As with the earlier reviews, had 250g bags of colostrum over the past few months that were yellow and tasted creamy once mixed with water. Received a 250g bag this morning and I'm sure it is not the same product. White, chalky and tasted like unflavoured whey protein. Also the bag was filled to the max and I am unable to close it. I have used colostrum from many sourced for many years and it has never looked or tasted like this, never!
I have tried this product because I heard it was good for muscle growth fat loss and well being. It has exceeded in all categories and shall be buying this from you regularly due to its cheap price and effectiveness. Goes Well With:Water,protein whey
The first few batches I bought were golden and sandy, now it's cut rubbish, floury white chalky rubbish. Typical corporation cheating people putting profit before quality...this is what we put into our BODIES!!! How dare you? Answer us now or you will loose loyal customers and I will do so by spreading the word to boycott myprotein. I'm starting to wonder if their protein powders are fake too, I think i might start buying REFLEX products
My cat has lymphoma and was losing weight rapidly. I have been giving him a teaspoonful of colostrum powder mixed with warm water which he laps up each morning. Since I have been doing this (6 weeks) he has put on 40g, has an improved appetite and seems better able to cope with his other medication. Reading the more recent comments I think this was an earlier batch - it is pale yellow, speckled and mixes easily with water.
Colostrum is usually yellowy/speckled in appearance and smell very pungent like cream-this product is colourless and odourless and will not mix in water. When finally mixed it is tasteless NOT like any other colostrum supplements i have tried. I will not be buying againGoes Well With:whey protein
Absolutely loved the 1st batch but the second wasn't has good. It had small white flakes floating around when mixed upGoes Well With:Diet whey protein
I add it to my after workout protein shake. Mixes well, no particular taste. Good product
I suffer from cfs. After taking this Ultra Colostrum and only sleeping for a few hours, I don't seem to be as tired as usual. I'm still tired though but there's no need to lie on the sofa all day. Also some of my teeth sensitivity is gone which I believe is due to colostrum, drink milk it's good for your teeth we all heard as child. This however is not valid for supermarket milks. Also I have noticed my muscles are much harder without doing any exercise, which, I believe, must be because of the igf's. I don't lift weights anymore but if I did I would only use colostrum as a protein source, it's more expensive but totally worth it. Money is well spent. For better mixability add a very small amount of water and stir to a paste, if there is not enough water, add some more. When you have got a paste, fill as much water or liquid as preferred. It's just like mixing cacao. The taste for me is not awkward like others have said. I guess it depends on the person's sensibility. Goes Well With:Only tried with water.
Does the job well, but tastes awful !!Goes Well With:Protien shake
"The results are moderately pleasing, I've been recovering quicker from workouts faster and have noticed a small amount of lean gains. The taste however is horrid, I've got quite a high tolerance for unpleasant tastes with supplements, but this has got to be the worst supplement I've ever tried in terms of taste. The price whilst expensive compared to whey protein, is cheap compared to other places I've seen colostrum on offer. Because of the taste I have to give this product a 2 overall. If you want results and aren't bothered by the very unpleasant taste then it might be for you. If myprotein could sort out a way of making it taste nicer I'm sure they'd sell a lot more."
I had seen colostrum advertised for years previously but never really gave it a thought until recently, after doing a lot of research I was astounded by what I read and when I started dieting I decided to give it a go, I have 10g with my morning shake and 10g with my bedtime shake, I would love 10g post training but then it becomes to expensive but I can see this happening in the future!, it's a lovely creamy yellow colour and mixes perfectly, It's to early to say if I've noticed any effects yet but I really rate this stuff, I feel good taking it if that makes any sense and will continue to include it in my diet as a staple! Goes Well With:Whey, misceller protein, oats
Colostrum tastes odd but so do a lot of sports supplements. Of course, I'm not attracted to the taste of colostrum (I'm never quite sure why people insist on slating products on the grounds of taste?!!) but am attracted to its benefits. Every time I'm on the stuff I swear my muscle recovery rate is better (an important factor when you're approaching your mid-30s like I am) and it seems to help with muscle tone retention in periods when I'm not training as much (like now during the tennis season). Normally, all this would be out of reach due to the expense of colostrum but not with My Protein. GMP quality at knock down prices = value for money in my book!! Goes Well With:Oats and whey protein. Complimenting products in terms of training performance and recovery but also ideal to mask the slightly strange creamy taste and slightly gritty texture all colostrum seems to have.
Will definately be buying this again! This product was recommended by my close friend and fellow gym parter after he had some quick gains. 4 weeks in and the results are there. Mixes smoothly and is ideal for a quick post-workout shake.Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein
Ultra Colostrum (30% IgG) contains immunoglobulins & of course amino acids etc. It is different to whey in the fact that it helps heal the the body. I do not have a problem getting enough protein in my diet so this is a better option for health.
although i found the taste on its own quite terrible mixed with a protein shake its fine. weather it was just a placebo effect or the colostrum i do feel healthier
The product is effective but requires continual use a bigger size would be good to last a month as currently the recommended dose lasts 15 days. Bar that it's a good reasonably priced product.
