Nutrition

Milk is not only an important source of calcium, high-value protein, zinc, magnesium and vitamins, but also scientifically proven health-promoting functional properties. Milk based derivatives can also have beneficial effects on bone and teeth health, prevention of osteoporosis, the metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and the cardiovascular risk, on overweight and obesity and on gastrointestinal well - being and gut health.

Laktopol International promotes ongoing development of dairy-based derivatives and their inherent nutrients for growth, development, and the maintenance of optimal health.

Functional Ingredients

More »

Milk is a rich source of nutritive compounds which can be enriched and/or further modified. Milk proteins and bioactive peptides may supply new products to help protect against several common health risk factors.

With the demand for personal nutritional needs there is an increasing demand for functional products. Milk contains a range of bioactive components with potentially beneficial effects. Bioactive effects of note include proteins such as lactoferrin and the immunoglobulins, peptides formed during milk protein hydrolysis, fatty acids such as conjugated linoleic acid, minerals, oligosaccharides and melatonin.

Development of new, more sophisticated processing, including processes that are less likely to denature proteins, and processes to recover enriched streams of specific bioactives, will lead to wider availability of milk-derived functional foods and ingredients.

Colostrum Formulated Products

Immune System Support
Colostrum provides a broad range of immune enhancing properties via a host of immunoglobulins, proline-rich polypeptides, lactoferrin and other immune active molecules that assist the human body against infections such as sinusitis, bronchitis, colds and influenza. Research has shown colostrums is effective against gastro intestinal conditions such as cryptosporidium, rotavirus, streptococcus, E. coli, salmonella and giardia.

Leaky Gut and Auto-immune Diseases
Leaky gut syndrome is a condition in which the intestinal lining is damaged and becomes more permeable than normal. This allows toxic substances, bacteria, viruses, parasites and other harmful substances into the bloodstream. This leads to increased toxemia, food allergies, malabsorption of minerals and vitamins and general deterioration of the immune system. Leaky gut syndrome has been associated with numerous conditions and auto-immune diseases including chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn's disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthiritis, scleroderma and vasculitis.

The anti-inflammatory action of the growth factors in Colostrum help to protect and repair the damaged endothelial cells of the gut. Colostrum also contains proline-rich polypeptides which play a crucial role in regulating auto-immune disease by balancing the immune system response and curbing the overreaction that characterizes auto-immune disease. By inhibiting the overproduction of T-cells and lymphocytes, the degree of pain and swelling is reduced.

Immune System Support
The baby boomer age group is the fastest growing population in the United States today. Changes associates with aging include degenerative joint disease, loss of skin elasticity, changes in the functioning of the endocrine glands and more. As the baby boomers progress through mid-life, it becomes increasingly important for them to maintain their energy and vitality.

Research indicates that key components in Colostrum, such as epithelial growth factors, fibroblast growth factors, Insulin Like Growth Factors (IGF-1 and IGF-II) and transforming factors A and B, all provide potent benefits for the tissues and organ health.

There is also growing evidence that Colostrum has the capacity to promote quicker recovery from the effects of strenuous physical exercise, resulting in increased endurance and vitality.

Cardiovascular Health, Obesity and Diabetes
Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in the Unites States and claims as many lives as the next 8 leading causes of death combined. Elevated homocysteine levels are noted in 80% of fatal heart attacks and strokes. Evidence suggest that immune boosting agents and growth factors as found in Colostrum, along with high levels of vitamins and minerals, all work synergistically to provide potent health benefits and may address the homocysteine issue.

Over 55% of the U.S. population is considered overweight which leads to an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. The growth factors in Colostrum, in particular IGF-1, may assist the body to better utilize food consumed and help to burn fat.

Diabetes in the U.S. is at epidemic levels according to authorities in early 2001. IGF-1 has a positive effect on insulin and may be effective in reducing the amount of insulin required for diabetics to regulate their blood sugar levels.

Colostrum is also an excellent source of antioxidants which protect cellular proteins, DNA, collagens and fats against damaging free radicals.

BIO-CAL®
Milk Mineral Complex

Natural Mineral Complex
Milk is an important source of major minerals particularly calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and trace elements such as zinc. About 99% of the human body's calcium is in bone and teeth with the remaining one percent in bodily fluids, nerves, heart and muscle. Throughout life, calcium is continually being removed from bones and replaced with calcium. Consequently, the need for an adequate supply of dietary calcium is important throughout life, not only during the years of skeletal development. In addition to calcium's role in bone health, this mineral fulfills several other important physiological functions in the human metabolism, as evidenced by its role in muscle contraction, blood clotting, nerve transmission and regulation of blood pressure.

BIO-CAL is a milk mineral complex with excellent bio-availability of naturally occurring milk minerals. This product offers essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and other trace minerals in an ideal balanced ratio. BIO-CAL can add functional value to a wide variety of applications including general food and beverage products, as wells as nutritional and supplement formulations.
