Notes for this study:
Bovine colostrum (low-molecular weight fraction at 150mg in capsules) in otherwise healthy adults noted that supplementation was able to acutely increase phagocytic activity of monocytes. Total T cell count was nonsignificantly modified after one hour which normalized after two hours, and NK cells appeared to be decreased at one hour only to be normalized within two hours.

All effects noted in this study were transient, although the study only lasted for one day in length.
