During its first 48-hours, a new-born calf receives colostrum, the first milk from its mother, to aid health and boost its immune system. As it’s packed with nutrients and protein there’s growing research making claims for its suitability for athletes.

It’s claimed that colostrum boosts the immune system – less time off being ill means more time for training – and increases the efficiency of the digestive system to get the amino acids directly to the muscles for maximum recovery.

This combination of decreased illness, increased nutrient uptake and increased strength results in reduced downtime from training, faster recovery, greater lean muscle mass and superior overall performance.

Various studies undertaken amongst footballers, cyclists, rowers and rugby players point at colostrum’s potential for performance enhancement and protection against over-training, with improved stamina and less recovery time needed between sessions.

Neovite is supplied as a powder, and is best taken with milk, water or juice. For best results it’s recommended that it’s taken once daily, ideally first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Neovite low fat first milk 100g £9 or Neovite low fat lactose reduced 100g £12.

RCUK will be putting Neovite to test over the following weeks and will report back with its findings.
