What is Dairy (Bovine) Colostrom Powder (BCP)?
Each caplet of Travelan® contains 200mg of “Hyperimmunised” Dairy (Bovine) Colostrum Powder which has been scientifically developed to be rich in antibodies against pathogenic bacteria. Bovine Colostrum Powder also contains other naturally occurring factors that have non-specific antimicrobial properties such as lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase which may aid in maintaining digestive health. The BCP in Travelan® is sourced from New Zealand dairy cows that have been specifically “hyper-immunised” with patented Immuron vaccines by experienced and qualified veterinarians. These vaccines illicit a strong immune response which allows the cows to produce very high levels of specific antibodies, against the ETEC bacteria and the toxins they produce that cause diarrhea. The antibodies bind to the ETEC bacteria and toxins, effectively neutralizing them and inhibiting their attachment to the gastrointestinal tract.
