    Inosine Colostrum - A "safe" "steroid"?


    They say the FDA is starting to look into this stuff which is basically baby's milk. Supposed to give you an appetite, is low fat, and is supposed to make you stronger.

    Can come in liquid or pills.

    Anybody tried this supplement for months? How did it work for you guys?

    I am pretty sure the colostrum is from bovine, so it should be baby cows milk.

    Makes sense... So it could be the same as the BGH (Bovine Growth Hormone)they pump into cows in the US nowadays (which reportedly makes the cows grow to massive size and produce a ton of milk.)

    Because of this, the milk producers have to put BGH in the ingredients list if they pumped their cows full of the stuff because the chemicals Do get into the milk and into humans (Effects are ?? though.)

    Hmm..

    An additional point to the post above...

    Remember when Whey protein used to be thrown away as 'Waste' and 'Trash'?

    We never now..we might see colostrum w/ some kind of delivery mechanism pretty soon named "MONSTER MIX" or some hyped up name like that.

    I've tried it, months supply came with a tub of protein I bought awhile back. It's not like a pre-workout supp where your going to notice a difference between one workout and the next, but the annecdotal research looks promising, I would continue to take it if I could find a cheap source.

    From Wikipedia:

    Colostrum contains all five immunoglobulins found in all mammals, IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM. There are many beneficial proteins in the colostrum, including a variety of growth factors (IGfs).

    Those immunoglobulins seem like a good selling point. The IGf things are debatable I guess.

    Call it Cowbol or something lol.

    I don't know about pumping them into prego cows but when that cow was born until it was milked dry and eaten as steak it's full of BGH. How to infuse all that BGH into humans without too much of a bad effect is the question.

    Imagine the ***** tits if you inject yourself w/ BGH..Yeah, you'll be as big as a cow but your pecs will look like udders too

    Yeah I looked into a vitamin shop awhile ago and it's pretty expensive, $35 for 90. Inositol is supposed to make it even better. Inositol can be found in a bunch of natural fat-burner type supplements.

    Probably would work, just make sure it's from "First Milking," meaning the very first milk that comes out of the udders for the baby cow. Poor baby cow...humans stealing its milk..but then again we give them BGH in return lol.

    I realize this is off-topic/a tangent to the topic but it should be pointed out that most of what has been posted here about BGH is untrue and flows from propaganda spewed from the likes of PETA and the protectionist EU/Canada. Sorry for the digression, but if this isn't pointed out some f-tard will read this and take it as gospel truth.

    if u dish out like $100 you can run ~25g per day for around 40 days, (this is what most of the scientific studies used for dosing, even up to 40g). Thinking about it.

    I worked at a gym as a janitor in high school, just to be in the gym atmosphere.

    A regular member put on some good size in a couple months, so I asked what he was doing differently. He moved closer, and said 'It's kind of gross, but...well, my wife just had our baby, and she pumps her milk. She has too much, so I've been drinking the extra. The first portion is colostrum, and I'm feeling GREAT and getting strong. So go knock some chick up. '


    True story. All milk raised animals have colostrum.

    Wow dude. THAT guys' hardcore! He has that Do Whatever It Takes attitude. And I'd bet anybody if anything that Human colostrum consumed by humans is even better than cow colostrum consumed by humans.

    Do you guys ever wonder how a little newborn can clutch your finger harder than what seems possible? They don't have muscles, all they eat is milk from their mom's tit(s) too.

    I've read that colostrum plays a big part in babies growth rates. I wouldn't be surprised if it were extremely effective for muscle growth, in sufficient quantities.

    Without colostrum, babies will never reach their normal genetic potential. They'll literally be the runt of the litter in school. This is why doctors always recommend breast milk as long as possible.

    Edit: Baby grip strengths are actually way higher when they're on breast milk. Once they stop they lose most of that strength and grip strength becomes normal. Grip strength btw is a genetic leftover to humans from monkeys. Baby monkeys had to have massive grip strength to cling to their mothers while their moms swing or climb from tree to tree.

    Bovine colostrum (BC) has been reported to enhance immune function, reduce fat accumulation and facilitate the movement of glucose to the muscle. However, very few attempts have been made to examine its anti-diabetic effects in diabetes patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether BC decreases blood glucose, as well as cholesterol, triglyceride (TG) and ketones levels, which can be elevated by obesity and stress in Type 2 diabetic patients. Sixteen patients (men=8, women=8) with Type 2 diabetes were randomized into the study. Each ingested 5 g of BC on an empty stomach every morning and night for 4 weeks. Blood glucose, ketones (beta-hydroxybutyric acid), total cholesterol and TGs were measured every week. In both the men and women, blood glucose levels at 2 and 8 h postprandial decreased continually during the experimental period. The rate of decrease in blood glucose at 8 h postprandial was not different between the men and women, but was higher in the women (14.25+/-2.66) than in the men (10.96+/-1.82%) at 2 h postprandial. Total cholesterol and TG levels decreased significantly in both the men and women after 4 weeks. Also, beta-hydroxybutyric acid level decreased with BC ingestion, but this was not significant. These results suggest that BC can decrease levels of blood glucose and ketones, as well as reduce cholesterol and TGs, all of which may cause complications in Type 2 diabetic patients.

    Lol, they might have gone overboard. Like what echinacea is today (cure-all.) I don't think it would hurt to supplement with it though. It does increase your immune system's resistance to everything, it doesn't CURE. That's a big difference. It's like comparing vitamins and tylenol.
