Introduction
 

The immune system acts like a warrior that guards your body against disease and infection. However, as age is catching up, your immune system ages with you too, and they may have lesser in amount and react slower than it used to. BiO-LiFE ImunCol+ PROBIOtix Gold contains colostrum with a whopping 30% of Immunoglobulin G (IgG), being one of the highest contents in the market. Those with the weaker immune system, such as the elderly, individuals that undergone antibiotic treatment, or those who are having stressful lifestyles, can benefit from taking colostrum to boost their immunity and prevent infections.
