Why dairy colostrum?
Research has shown that the immune and growth factors in dairy colostrum and early season milk from cows are nearly identical to human. Dairy colostrum is not species specific and works effectively in humans and other animals.

What about BSE?
neovite
is produced exclusively from New Zealand herds, all of which are certified free from BSE. See our news item for NZ certification. The pastures grazed do not receive herbicides or pesticides. All batches are tested to be free of antibiotics to international standards.

Why do we need neovite?
After our teens bodies begin the aging process by gradually producing less of the immune and growth factors that resist disease and heal tissue. neovite is the only natural source of these life-enhancing components. Research shows that neovite supports immune function and can help use fat for fuel and optimise cellular reproduction.

How safe is neovite?
Colostrum and early season milk are natural foods that have been used for millenia as human food on dairy farms worldwide. Their use is widespread in rural Ireland, Scandinavia and Finland and are treasured foods for Masai warriors in Kenya. Colostrum is often used by Australian and New Zealand athletes at the highest competitive levels. There are no reports of any adverse effects among milk-drinking populations.
to the top

What about lactose intolerance?
The amount of lactose in neovite low lactose is lowered by membrane filtration to less than 10%. Any discomfort could be a sign that colostrum is healing the digestive tract. If you have a dairy intolerance, seek advice from your practitioner or from ourselves by email. Please report any discomfort to us using our contacts page.

What about pregnancy and nursing?
Consult with your medical professional before taking any prescription drugs, over the counter medications, herbs or nutritional supplements. This includes neovite.
to the top

Can children have neovite?
Paediatricians recommend that infants who have not been breastfed, can be given neovite to supplement their formula once they are taking cow's milk.
to the top

What about pets?
neovite
works for pets and other mammals because it is not species specific. The neovite powder can be added to their water.
to the top

What about the calf?
The colostrum used to make neovite is taken from the cow in the first hours after calving. A cow produces enough colostrum and milk for twins, although these are very rare. It is essential that the calf obtains colostrum immediately after birth and then at least 2 litres of colostrum within the first 12 hours of calving for its survival. Only the surplus first milk can be collected to make neovite.
to the top

Why is neovite de-fatted?
De-fatting neovite is important to keep the colostrum from rancid oxidation on the shelf.
Growth and immune factors are proteins, not a part of the fat.

Which neovite should I take?
neovite is available as two different products: neovite - a low fat product ideal for immune boost, athletic performance and some digestive conditions; neovite low lactose - a low fat, lactose reduced product ideal for diabetics and people with lactose sensitivity. For a more detailed breakdown, go to the neovite composition page.

How much should I take?
The amount of neovite you take will vary by your age, weight and health problems. neovite is a food and can safely be taken in any amount. Go to the neovite usage page to estimate your needs. .
to the top

How long will it take me to feel any different?
neovite is a multi-functional food for physiological support. It is most effective when taken over an extended period of time, rather than in great quantity. If you are an athlete, expect to use 10-20g per day for 2 months before any significant enhancement. If you are taking neovite for digestive health, you should see an improvement within 10-14 days at 5g per day. 3-5g of neovite daily for several months may be necessary to aid autoimmune conditions. You may safely exceed the quoted amounts.
to the top

Does alcohol affect neovite?
Some reports suggest that ethanol (the alcohol that we drink) blocks the activity of several bioactive components contained in neovite, in particular EGF. It is recommended that to gain maximum benefit from neovite, alcohol should be avoided wherever possible.
to the top

Can I take neovite with medications?
neovite
heals the digestive tract so well that all substances taken internally, food, herbs, natural healing substances and medications, will become more available to the body. Although neovite has no known drug interactions, you may find that the other supplements and medications that you are taking will have a more pronounced effect.
to the top

Are there any side effects from neovite?
Side effects are very rare. Due to its detoxifying nature, certain side effects may occur, known as a Herxheimer reaction. It's possible for immunoglobulin-bound toxins to produce minor rashes, bowel changes or flu-like symptoms until they are expelled from the body.
Side effects may stem from other supplements or medications that that are taken with
neovite that are finally being used by the body. You may consult with your practitioner to re-evaluate your needs. This may particularly apply to insulin and HRT medications.

I'm a vegetarian.
Although
neovite is derived from an animal source, the amount taken is surplus to the needs of the calf. No suffering is incurred by the cow or calf in the production of neovite.
to the top

Should neovite be pasteurised?
The udders can be contaminated with E-coli, salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria from manure. This can contaminate dairy products which MUST be pasteurised to kill pathogens. There are two ways of pasteurising colostrum - HTST (high temperature/short time) 15 seconds at 72 deg C. or a vat process 30-minute at 60 deg.
neovite HTST pasteurisation uses equipment found in the modern dairy that does not denature the colostrum. In the 30-minute pasteurisation process, a vat is heated from the outside. During the time this takes, bacteria grow in the colostrum, reducing its efficacy.
to the top

Why collect over 24 hrs rather than the first 6?
The first milking after birth is reserved for the calf. The second milking of colostrum, collected during six to twelve hours after birth, is higher in IgG growth factor than subsequent milking. Because the level of IgG is high, the other more important healing components in colostrum, such as lactoferrin and PRP, are less. These factors are higher in the early season milk up to 24 hours after birth.
to the top

Is oestrogen found in neovite?
There is a trace amount of cow's oestrogen in neovite. This form of oestrogen is not bio-available to humans when taken orally. neovite's growth factors balance the body's sex and growth hormones - both male and female. It is advised that women on hormone replacement therapy that are experiencing symptoms of too much oestrogen may need to adjust their medication.
