Why not capsules?
Colostrum is activated in the mouth by saliva - via babes at breast, suckling calves, and you and I.
All mammals, including humans, at birth receive and benefit from colostrum. All newborn mammals receive colostrum orally, and not in an encapsulated form which bypasses the mouth, throat, and pharynx, where vital biological processes occur. Encapsulation is not part of the scheme designed by nature. Processes initiated by colostrum lozenges dissolving in the mouth are crucial to colostrum efficacy; these include salivation, buffering, and enzymatic and neurological responses.
Colostrum mixes with saliva and forms a protective, mucus-like coating that keeps the colostrum from being degraded by digestive enzymes. With lozenges it is not necessary to flush the colostrum through the stomach with water.
Powder and Lozenges
Usage note: Best taken on an empty stomach. Below are general guidelines.
Maintenance: One-fourth teaspoon of the powder two or three times daily, or one lozenge two or three times daily. Some persons may require higher usage levels for maintenance. For higher usage levels the powder is recommended, up to one level teaspoon three times daily.
Compromised or fragile conditions: One level teaspoon of the powder two or three times daily.
Bodybuilding / Athletics: One level teaspoon of the powder at morning, night, and before workouts.
How to take the powder: The powder may be taken straight and allowed to dissolve in the mouth, mixed with a food such as yogurt or applesauce, or dissolved in a beverage. The powder is water-soluble but does not dissolve quickly.
Synertek liquid is a product of removing all of the fat and casein, leaving the colostral whey fraction.
The liquid can be used internally or topically. A drop or two on a skin cut or abrasion will stop pain and promote healing that can be seen in only a few minutes. Liquid colostrum will stop nosebleeds quickly. Incidental disorders such as upset stomach and headache often improve immediately with two or three tablespoons of the liquid.
For bloody nose:
Liquid colostrum will stop nosebleeds quickly. Wad tissue paper of a size to fit snugly in nostril. Soak tissue paper with colostrum and insert in bleeding nostril. If the bleeding allows lie on your back. In about five to ten minutes remove the tissue paper. The bleeding should be stopped, leaving the nostril unclogged and with free and easy breathing. If the bleeding has not stopped, the wad may not have been of sufficient length to contact the bleeding source. Heavy, stubborn nosebleeds may require light pressure along with the colostrum and two or three repeated applications. After the bleeding has stopped, clearing the nose by blowing normally will not cause the bleeding to start again.
For skin injuries:
Liquid colostrum will instantly stop the pain of minor skin injuries and dramatically speed healing. To see it work, place a drop or two on a skin injury. You can see healing take place as you watch. To heal a minor skin injury overnight, soak a pad of folded tissue paper with the liquid colostrum, hold it in place with a Band-Aid, and the next morning the injury will be healed to a great extent. This is especially helpful with those painful finger cuts that seem to never want to heal.
Additional internal usage notes:
Shelf life: At least twelve months.
Flavoring Note: Synertek lozenges are flavored with all natural flavoring, a mixture of strawberries and raspberries, which gives them the light pink color with visible bits of berries.
The “Healing Crisis”
A small percentage of first-time colostrum users will experience a “healing crisis”. Symptoms may include one or more of the following: abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, nausea, headache, cough, rash, and uncommonly a low grade fever. Normally the symptoms vanish within two days, but can last up to a week. Temporarily decreasing to one lozenge (or ¼ tsp of the powder) daily will usually stop the symptoms. If symptoms are too uncomfortable, it is recommended to not use colostrum for 48 hours, and then resume with one lozenge (or ¼ tsp powder) daily for a week. Symptoms will normally not reoccur. The healing crisis is caused by the body ridding itself of toxins and presents no risk or danger.
Side Effects: There are no known side effects with colostrum.
Product note: All Synertek Colostrum is 1st milking colostrum from the first six hours after calving. There is no higher quality colostrum anywhere at any price.
