There is some concern about the possibility of catching "mad cow disease" (bovine spongiform encephalitis, BSE) or other diseases from products that come from animals. "Mad cow disease" does not appear to be transmitted through milk products, but it is probably wise to avoid animal products from countries where mad cow disease has been found.
Do not take bovine colostrum if:
- You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
- You are allergic to cow's milk or milk products.
- For infectious diarrhea: 10-20 grams of colostrum daily for 10 days.
