Thirty days ago I received my shipment of Colossal bovine colostrum. It arrived neatly packaged and protected from damage in reflective padded packaging. The whole thing screamed of advanced technology!

Colossal is a colostrum supplement positioned to accelerate recovery and is the latest entry in the world of sport nutrition. Colostrum is the first milk all mammals produce when they give birth. It’s a complex liquid that nature designed specifically for the unique needs of the newborn. Colostrum is high in immune factors, growth factors, vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Its benefits can be utilized by all species at any stage of their life. Colostrum is intended to provide vital elements to newborns that are critical for their survival. Colostrum is not a new supplement. Like many things, the processing to a powder is a better business model but some of the key factors found is colostrum are potentially compromised.

To determine the effectiveness of Colossal, I consumed 20ml in the morning and evening while continuing with my typical diet. I measured my weight in the mornings and kept track of morning soreness and my desire to train (exercise). I had to get out of bed a couple of times when I realized that I had missed my second feeding of Colossal.

I would like to report that I was 10kg heavier with more muscle mass or maybe report that I felt better all day long, but I did not detect any measurable physical or mental differences while taking Colossal. I had no change in body weight or percentage of body fat, and I was not stronger in any of my strength moves. Most certainly we could attribute this to inferior genetics or that I’m in the 5th decade of life. I will let you be the judge on that score.

Colossal needs to be refrigerated but it wasn’t overly big and fit comfortably in my refrigerator. Colossal has a neurtral taste and does can mix with other beverages.

My personal recommendation is that you try Colossal to gauge your personal response to the product. It is not expensive and the science is interesting, at the very least.
