Quite simply, IgG delivers immunity and immunity is essential to survival. With a guaranteed 18 per cent IgG, AgriVantage Launchpad18 colostrum powder has at least 20 per cent more potential immunity than other powders on the market. That’s why it’s the best.
Colostrum plays a vital role in neonatal health; providing high quality colostrum as soon as possible after birth maximises the health of a newborn animal.
Key for survival and nourishment, high quality maternal colostrum contains high levels of immunoglobulins and approximately 90 functional components beneficial to life, including proteins, carbohydrates, antibodies and immune factors, vitamins and minerals, growth factors and peptides and fats.
Launchpad18 is pure, unadulterated Colostrum Gold
In other words, it’s first milking, frozen, transported, thawed and dried. There are no additives and it’s not manipulated.
Both highly concentrated in IgG (18%) and good fat levels (minimum 18%), Launchpad18 is also the most balanced product on the market.
Other colostrum powders sacrifice fat for a high IgG percentage, or vice-versa
Why? Because in most manufacturing processes, they must ‘de-fat’ the product to increase the IgG concentration. In taking out the fatty acids, you strip out a direct fuel source for the newborn.
Some manufacturers also ultra-filtrate the product to achieve higher IgG concentration – risking the elimination of growth factors within the fat content, which are important for gut development.
Where products are high in IgG but low fat, there’s a risk that the smaller molecular weighted aspects of the colostrum are compromised. In other words, the overall quality of the colostrum is compromised.
In the case of low IgG products (with high fat content), you must feed considerably more colostrum to achieve the same levels of passive transfer of immunity (g of IgG/animal) that comes with feeding Launchpad18.
