UpSpring probiotic + colostrum for babies and kids. Probiotics are everywhere. My family is eating yogurt, drinking kombucha and we have multiple supplements in our home. Okay, maybe I’m just drinking the kombucha, but probiotics are increasing in popularity. In fact, when my family caught the Norovirus a few weeks ago our pediatrician recommended a probiotic powder! They’re blowing up and everyone is racing to get these beneficial bacteria working in their guts. I’m thrilled to share this new product from UpSpring, probiotic + colostrum with you. Not only does it include probiotics, but it also has the benefits of bovine colostrum. Read more in this sponsored post, contains affiliate links.

UpSpring probiotics + colostrum contains colostrum from cows. Knowing the many benefits to human colostrum, I set out to research the benefits to bovine colostrum. “Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows contains immunoglobulins specific to many human pathogens” including the rotavirus which causes diarrhea in infants (1) and was a vaccine offered by our pediatrician along with her verbal warning that the rotavirus was the most common cause of infant hospitalization for dehydration.
“Before the development of antibiotics, colostrum was the main source of immunoglobulins used to fight infections. In fact, when Albert Sabin made his first oral vaccine against polio, the immunoglobulin he used came from bovine colostrum.When antibiotics began to appear, interest in colostrum waned, but, now that antibiotic-resistant strains of pathogens have developed, interest is once again returning to natural alternatives to antibiotics, namely, colostrum.” (1)
So, while the colostrum in UpSpring probiotic + colostrum is not from breast milk, it sounds like the benefits may be well known and utilized throughout history. The company does not specify how it’s collected, but they do state that the product is Non-GMO but not organic.
