Antonio J, Sanders MS, Van Gammeren D. The effects of bovine colostrum
supplementation on body
composition and exercise performance in active men and women.
University of Delaware, Sports
Science Laboratory, Newark, Delaware 19176, USA. Exphys@...
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of 8 wk of
bovine colostrum supplementation
on body composition and exercise performance in active men and women.
Subjects were randomly
assigned to a placebo (whey protein) and colostrum group (20 g/d in
powder form). Each subject
participated in aerobic and heavy-resistance training at least three
times per wk. Body composition
was assessed via dual x-ray absorptiometry analysis. Treadmill time to
exhaustion, one repetition
maximum strength (bench press), and the total number of repetitions
performed during one set to
exhaustion at a submaximal load for the bench press (50% and 100% of
body weight for women and
men, respectively) were ascertained. The whey protein group
experienced a significant increase (P <
0.05) in body weight (mean increase of 2.11 kg), whereas the colostrum
group experienced a
significant (P < 0.05) increase in bone-! free lean body mass (mean
increase of 1.49 kg). There were
no changes in any of the other parameters measured. Thus,
supplementation with bovine colostrum
(20 g/d) in combination with exercise training for 8 wk may increase
bone-free lean body mass in
active men and women.
