Hello people. I have heard colostrum can help heal the gut and can be used as a preventative measure prior to exercise. My questions are:

1. has anyone had good/bad experiences with using it?
2. does it contain the same components as regular milk that cause many people to abstain or reduce milk intake during early stages of gut healing? fwiw i am 5 months gluten-free and have found less gastric distress from reducing milk intake but don't want to use colostrum if it brings back those symptoms.

Thanks.

Interesting question. I would wonder though since, I think, mother's who are eating gluten are advised to go gluten free when they have celiac babies that are nursing if colostrum from gluten eating women would also be an issue. I'm curious to see what other's might think about this.

My sons gastro prescribed colostrum for him and i started taking it for myself because we both have been run down with belly issues and sickness all winter. I do feel like it helps both of us. I don't have dairy in my diet either and I don't feel like the colostrum bothers my stomach.

Darn...you learn something every day.  Who knew colostrum could be prescribed?  Guess I need to start crawling out from under my rock. :rolleyes:
