    Hi Guys,

    I'm living out in China now and i can buy Colostrum at a cheap price in 10Kg bags. Given this, can anyone tell me the best way to take it. I am taking it to raise my natural hgh levels, to help exercise recovery time and to help me recover from injuries more quickly.

    My current research indicates that i should take it on a empty stomach with at least half a pint of water. I was thinking of taking it upon waking and half an hour before bed, does this seem ok or do you think the second dose should before my evening meal?

    Also given that cost is not an issue, does anyone know of an optimum dose or is it case of the more then merrier?

    Thanks

    Depends on the potency, but i think a tsp in the morning and a tsp before bed is the norm to boost IGF-1 levels at those times when it is most useful.

    Chinese colostrum? Due to the horror stories of chinese supplements in the past (anyone remember the chinese tryptophan disaster?), i would be wary of the cleanliness of that stuff, esp. colostrum which could be laced with antibiotics and hormones such as bovine growth hormone (implicated in increased tumor activity in humans) if it has been fed to the cattle that the colostrum came from.

    Probably best to get it from India if you want it cheap but with less chance of contamination. If you do get it from China, it's probably best to get it from the yunnan province, which is generally regarded as the most pristine area in china.
