    Hey! Pretty sure it has been helping me! I have been taking it for a month and I feel great so yep! You buy it at a health food store. It hould be in a fridge. Keep it in the fridge.

    Hope it works for you!
    Can't hurt either way, colostrum is very good for you.

    I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

    What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

    Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

      Ok thanks, does it come in a powder. Online here I can only find it in a powder? What strength do I need to get? Some products say they contain colostrum but not how much. Thanks

        Does this sound right?

        MIP Colostrum Capsules: 90 capsules @ 500mg pure undiluted Maxi Immuno Plus Colostrum per bottle.

        Our MIP Colostrum is certified to be from healthy, pasture-fed, pesticide-free, hormone and antibiotic-free New Zealand cows. It is enhanced by an energising process to ensure biological activity.

        Serving Size: 1-2 MIP Colostrum Capsules daily, with a glass of water 20 minutes before food. In sport, for maximum benefit, take an additional 2 capsules MIP Colostrum directly after sport/exercise.


        I can get it shipped from New Zealand but if it has to be kept in the fridge that wouldn't work too well...

          Yes I take it in capsuls not powder form ... although there is chewable colostrum!? lol not sure how yummy that would be. Mine is the 500mg capsuls I take up to 8 a day though but its up to everyone what they choose to do.

            Chemist wearhoue in Australia has chewable colostrum capsuals, about to give them a try. I hope they work and dont cause a flare. I just cant seem to take cystoprotek really wanted it to work but it just ups the frequency to much.

              Let us bring science into the picture. Colostrum is high in lactoferrin. Lactoferrin is a known biofilm dissolver of staph, pseudomonas, and enterococcus bacteria. Dr. Fugazotto found enterococcus bacteria in over 90 percent of patients with IC he tested using the broth culture test. I take 500 mg with 2 tsp of xylitol twice daily. Research in a book about combating biofilms supports this technique. It is working for me.

                  What is bovine colostrum? Is it something you buy from Amazon? I don't gave an overactive bladder just pain with IC. I have urine retention and now stuck using catheters because a Urologist put Botox in my bladder.

                      **I think it is the lactoferrin that is contained in the colostrum.**
                      You can buy lactoferrin as a supplement.
                      You can also buy xylitol directly as well. I take 500 mg twice per day
                      with 2 tsp of xylitol.

                      Xylitol and biofilms - you can't have one without the other.

                      Xylitol and Lactoferrin kill enterococcus, pseudomonas, and staph biofilms per
                      book - Combating Biofilms.

                      Still working on killing my staph and pseudomonas biofilm infection as well. I have 2 1/2 months worth of high dose cipro antibiotics. I am getting better.

                        Quercetin with Bromelain and Hyaluronic Acid are both available OTC, available from the internet or at health food stores.
