***Hi everyone, sorry, yes you are seeing this post again. I originally tried to share a few weeks back however it was during the time many were being caught in big snow storms, without power, internet, etc and several messages had come in that I hold off in order for people to be able to access the giveaway as many were having trouble. So, here it's a quick one and please not the new end date is March 7th, 2019 and was a change from the Feb date. Thank you for stopping by today, have a great weekend and good luck!
Those of you who follow along on my blogs or social media know, but if you are new (welcome, it's good to have you) I have suffered digestive issues since I was a child. I was diagnosed with both a leaky gut as well as a Duodenal Ulcer when I was 8 yrs old and with Diverticulitis as a teen.
Now things haven't all been a pain in my gut or a pain in my ass (sorry just had too 💩) Sometimes I've actually gone months without any issues or at least no big issues, however, when my leaky gut is and or ulcer are bad, it can be impossible to sleep even. As a Flexitarian, I do try to be mindful of what I eat, a lot of the time I eat more on the side of Vegetarian as this is what works for my body.
Now let me get this out of the way before someone sends me hate messages yes I was a really strict and Cruelty-Free Vegan for several years and for issues that it brought on Flexitarian has just been better for my body. It has nothing to do contrary to what some people feel about my love for all animals and not just pets. I have personally risked my life many a time to rescue, and even rehabilitate wild animals, as well as livestock and I, am against inhumane farming, there is no excuse for it!
Ok, now that is out of the way... As I was saying I have gone months without much as far as symptoms. But if I happen to get a bout of food poisoning or have to do a round of steroids or like recently I required a large dose of IV steroids in the ER for severe anaphylaxis, then in spite of being mindful or making sure I take probiotics, my gut goes back to not being a happy gut, in fact a really unhappy gut!
So in early January, I was sent this Sovereign Laboratories Colostrum-LD Instant Colostrum Powder for review and it couldn't have come at a better time as a few days later before I had started the Colostrum-LD I had gone to the ER for the anaphylaxis. Having Asthma nearly all my life I am no stranger to steroids, however, since I rebounded 4 times in the ER I was given a crap ton dose of a steroid. I swear it took 9 days before I felt like me again for 1 day at least.
After the 9th day, on day 10 my gut was messed up and a bout of diverticulitis was about to happen, I am pretty tough with a high pain threshold, but the pain from these two was even pushing my limits!
Worried I would just make everything worse, as I had never even heard of Sovereign Laboratories Colostrum -LD, but I am glad I did, in fact, give it a try. Though it took 3 days before I noticed a difference I did notice a difference.
3 Days after starting the Colostrum-LD was the day I really noticed as it was the first time I wasn't uncomfortable all night with a painful gut and by 5th day of use my diverticulitis pain was finally lessening and I was nearly back to being regular (sorry about the TMI).
I really wasn't sure what to expect, the Sovereign Laboratories Colostrum-LD powder does come in original and Vanilla and I was provided with the original and to my surprise, it tastes like powdered milk (military dfac days, lol) or non-fat milk. I do recommend that you either use cold water or chill it if you are going to drink it alone.
Colostrum-LD they say to take on an empty stomach, it can be taken with water I added it to a shaker bottle, but I do recommend chilling it or using chilled water, plus you can be added and according to the directions they say don't mix with an acidic beverages such as coffee or juice.
I do wish you could add it to coffee or tea as I think this would make it easier to consume on the go, and it can be pricey but for me the results have been worth it, at this point after seeing for myself the results I can see having this on hand. I really wished I had started the Colostrum-LD much sooner, it may have lessened the duration of the recovery from the steroids.
