Made from the first milk of cows just after calving, Colo Power is enriched with immunoglobulins and probiotics andhas the same goodness equivalent to that of a mother’s first milk. Go Colo Power, a product in powder form, which can be mixed into porridge, contains high colostrum values which helps fight diseases like AIDS, diarrhea, etc that reduce the body’s immuno-defensive powers. The use of colostrum helps to build long-term immunity and improves and strengthens the digestive system.

The health benefits of this milk is not just limited to the new borns but is beneficial for people of all age groups. Earlier you could only get Colostrum in a capsule or pure powder form, which could not be completely absorbed completely by the body; but now with Colo Power, one can get the same benefits of Colostrum in food form, as a porridge, and with our patented technology, it provides much higher absorption. Colo Power is also good in taste, easier to prepare and has a longer shelf life.

About ColoPlus AB:
ColoPlus AB is a small Swedish biotech company active in research and development of product/application of colostrum-based innovations. Immune support by content of immunoglobulins is in focus.
ColoPlus AB team and founders, a group academician at Lund university,were discussing some biological effects of bovine raw milk (colostrum); boosting the immune system, fighting intestinal microorganisms and improving nutritional state.
The Product was developed and tested for a solution with optimal exposure to intestinal area, easy to handle and long shelf life. This gave us ColoPlus, a porridge product, patented in several areas worldwide, including India.
Now three clinical studies comprising some 1000 patients, were organized, performed and published in internationally well-reputed scientific journals, including Indian Journal of Gastroenterology. The results were clearly coherent showing strengthening of the immune- system, diminution of intestinal infections, amelioration of nutritional state, decreased fatigue and an increased feeling of wellbeing. ColoPlus was well tolerated and no side effects or adverse events were recorded.
ColoPlus that is a food product is served as a porridge, a gentle way to get nutrition and to boost the immune system in all ages.ColoPlus was developed to give physiological health effects beyond the supply of essential nutritive substances. Contrary to most current providers of colostrum preparations, productsfrom ColoPlus AB demands the claimed effect to be scientifically proved and documented before they are made available to the market.
ColoPlus innovation will be available in different markets, as company ColoPlus Pacific Ltd was registered for Australia, NZ, China and negotiation with for southern Africa, RSA patent will follow.
