Notes for this study:
Supplementation of colostrum (50g taken in two doses daily; about 3% IgG) in both athletes and sedentary persons for 10 weeks failed to influence both salivary and serum concentrations of IgA, IgM, and IgG; while it appeared that there were less upper respiratory tract symptoms in the latter half of the study with colostrum this did not reach significance.
