How can Colostrum aid in your practice?

In the study, “Stress Management for Equine Athletes,” Dr. Karen Malinowski of Rutgers states what most good horsemen and horsewomen know already: “Chronic equine stress has been implicated in many deleterious conditions including aggressive behavior; decreased growth and reproductive capability; inhibition of the immune system; and increased risks of gastric ulceration, colic, and diarrhea.” (“Stress Management for Equine Athletes,” Karen Malinowski, Ph.D., 2004 by Rutgers Cooperative Research & Extension, NJAES, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.)

It is a challenge to treat stress for the life of the horse. Whole liquid bovine colostrum can provide an additional tool for veterinarians seeking a viable option to address stress – particularly in their performance athlete patients.

Bovine colostrum has a long history as a nutritional feed supplement. Interest in colostrum as a nutritional feed supplement has increased over the last few decades, particularly as technology has improved the ability to process and preserve it. Colostrum also serves as an excellent adjunct to more conventional therapies, delivering naturally-occurring immune support, antibodies and antioxidants that support and extend the use of more traditional antibiotic, gastrointestinal pain relief and other pharmaceutical interventions.

Colostrum can be especially effective supporting immune function, reducing the negative effects of stress when horses are commingled in new settings, and helping maintain normal body composition.

How does Colostrum come to you, and how do you use it?

Our colostrum is 100% whole, liquid bovine colostrum, collected from USDA Certified Grade A dairies. Due to our unique processing, colostrum is never heated, retaining the full complement of immune supporters, growth factors, antioxidants, antibodies, vitamins, proteins and minerals contained in fresh bovine colostrum. Colostrum comes to you frozen in 450ml bottles or one-liter bags. When you receive the colostrum you may keep it frozen until you wish to use it. Then, you simply thaw it in your refrigerator for 24 hours, and it is ready to use.

There are a number of dosing options, but it is unnecessary to give Re-Borne constantly, as its use is situational according to the condition of the horse, its age, and its competition or travel schedule. For example, many veterinarians use Re-Borne to help:

  • Support the immune system
  • Maintain appetite
  • Promote intestinal health
  • Support healthy endurance
  • Aid recovery from physical challenges
  • Maintain and repair muscle health and performance

Whole bovine colostrum can help maintain the general health of all ages of horses, allowing them to retain healthy digestion, reduce the negative effects of stress, and help support their physical and mental well-being. Colostrum supports and maintain proper body function and overall good quality of life. While it is not a cure-all, it is a valuable adjunct for veterinarians who are facing dire challenges to the success of their performance horse.

Bovine colostrum is the option in your bag that is safe, effective and all-natural.
