For thousands of years raw colostrum has been consumed to help with all sorts of health challenges. In recent years with the use of modern manufacturing techniques, the benefits of consuming raw colostrum have been preserved in powdered colostrum. In the last ten years more advanced fractionation technologies have allowed the large-scale production of liquid colostrum supplements. Now we are observing a revival in the use of colostrum liquids and powders.
About the Author
Dr. Andrew Keech was born and raised on a dairy farm in New Zealand. Growing up on a New Zealand dairy farm, Dr. Keech learned about the immune factors in bovine colostrum and their ability to impart health to newborn calves. Early on he made a commitment to study the giving power of this natural immune defense system.
He received a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Mathematics and Chemistry in 1990 and a Bachelors degree with honors in Chemical and Process Engineering in 1992. He then earned a studentship to study at Oxford in England and received a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Chemical and Process Engineering in 1995 from the University of Canterbury. He was also awarded a Diploma in Process Control Systems in 1996 and became a Certified Plant Engineer (CPE) in 2002. He is a member of the Institute of Professional Engineers of New Zealand and the Institute of Chemical Engineers in London, England. He is a member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Dr. Keech has been working in the area of Protein Biochemistry since 1997.
He has developed hundreds of products from natural raw materials to help people with many health conditions. He pioneered the concept of an easy to use spray rich in proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs), a powerful immune modulator derived from colostrum. Dr. Keech promotes the power of PRPs through clinical studies around the world as part of his personal mission to save lives.
"Dr. Andrew Keech is to be highly praised for detailing this little understood ‘almost magical’ material that has been a lifesaver for various human societies over millennia. Dr. Keech’s very readable book unfolds a fascinating story if why that has occurred in the past and why, with this new compendium of information, it will be even more so in the future!"
— William A. Tiller, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Stanford University
"It is a great work, scientifically remarkable. The book is useful for experts and on the other hand provides useful data for everyday people, mainly if they want to increase their familiarity with colostrum. Now days there are a lot of them, who meet up with colostrum as food supplement."
— Tadej Malovrh, Professor of immunology, University of Ljubljana, Veterinary Faculty, Slovenia
"This is THE definitive work on the biochemistry and clinical application of mammalian colostrum. Dr. Keech thoroughly details the scientific basis for the use of colostrum in a variety of pathological conditions in a comprehensive, yet very readable style. Colostrum spray is one of the most valuable tools I have in my healing armamentarium. I highly recommend this stellar work for anyone interested in understanding the miracles possible with colostrum!"
