About us



Colostrumhealth™ and New Zealand Trade Merchants Limited


New Zealand Trade Merchants Limited (NZTM) is an incorporated company registered in New Zealand. In 2006 it commenced operations as a commodity trader exporting dairy products. By 2009, NZTM had moved its focus to the manufacturing and retailing of New Zealand produced natural health products, first aid supplies and safety equipment.
Colostrumhealth™
Seven years ago, NZTM recognised there was a good demand for high-grade pure New Zealand bovine (cow) colostrum powder. NZTM worked through the New Zealand’s Ministry of Health’s registered, GMP facility to manufacture high quality 100% pure New Zealand bovine colostrum for encapsulation and to be distributed in a pure powder form. These products are marketed internationally under the Colostrumhealth™ label. NZTM added vanilla flavoured chewable colostrum tablets to the popular Colostrumhealth™ powder and encapsulated powder range of products.
Cow colostrum products are not equal. New Zealand colostrum is known to be superior mainly due to the processing method, but also important is the fact that New Zealand farmers collect colostrum once a year during natural calving from year round pasture fed cows. These cows are antibiotic free and free from hormones. New Zealand milk products are also certified BSE free. New Zealand cow colostrum is never frozen, only chilled and then spray dried at low heat, protecting the sensitive bio-enzymes. The colostrum is collected from all over the country and then blended together thus enlarging the environmental exposure and variety of pathogens resulting in a higher level of varying antibodies contained in the colostrum. Most other countries collect colostrum from region specific herds thus limiting the variety of pathogens and antibodies contained in the collected colostrum. Having reviewed the claims and quality of cow colostrum health supplements available in the market today, we believe that the quality of New Zealand produced cow colostrum is the best in the world. A result of the collection and manufacturing processes as well as the sourcing of nature of New Zealand's rich grazing grasses which provide a product superior in bio-active components. Approximately 80% of Colostrumhealth™'s products are sold in the United States through NZTM’s virtual shopfronts www.colostrumnz.com and www.colostrum.gen.nz. In New Zealand, sales are made online through www.colostrumhealth.co.nz. and a number of pharmacies and natural health retailers. Approved distribution agencies have been granted for Indonesia and Turkey. Negotiations are presently underway to establish similar agreements with local distributors in Malaysia and China.

What's is bovine (cow) colostrum beneficial to humans?

Colostrum is the first food produced by mammals. This rich milk like substance contains a variety of essential nutrients, immunogobulins, growth factors and amino acids and provides the newborns with a boost in life. Bovine (cow) colostrum is found to be totally compatible to humans. Before the advent of modern medicine, bovine colostrum has been used for centuries to treat various conditions. The investigation of clinical effects of bovine colostrum in humans began in the late 1980s and continues today.

Research studies indicate that bovine colostrum may have direct antimicrobial and as well as other bioactivities that suppress gut inflammation and promote mucosal integrity and tissue repair under various conditions related to tissue injury. Bovine colostrum may also contribute to immunological events, resulting in systemic effects after contact with the gut mucosa. Bovine colostrum contains numerous factors attributable to the acquired and innate immune systems, including a range of peptides and proteins with direct antimicrobial effects.


How do colostrum products compare?

Cow colostrum products are not equal. New Zealand colostrum is known to be superior mainly due to the processing method, but also important is the fact that New Zealand farmers collect colostrum once a year during natural calving from year round pasture fed cows. The producing dairy herds have to be certified antibiotic free and free from hormones to be accepted for colostrum milking. Certification confirming New Zealand is free of BSE (mad cow disease) is available here BSE free certification. It is a fact that New Zealand has never had a single case of this disease. Both the bovine colostrum and the gel capsules carry Halal certification by the N.Z. Islamic Process Management Division.. To view the certification please click here Halal certification.

What makes Colostrumhealth™'s range of colostrum products different?

We know you have many choices.  Ask the right questions to enable you to get the very best colostrum.  Colostrumhealth™ prides itself in bringing you the highest quality and purest product we can.  Our colostrum capsule bottles contain 120 capsules filled with 500mg of pure high protein New Zealand colostrum. 100% pure. No additives, no Magnesium Stearate or any other flowing agents.  The same goes for our 100g tub of colostrum powder, only pure unadulterated New Zealand bovine colostrum powder.  Our tablets contain one of the highest amounts of pure colostrum powder in the market at 325mg per tablet. Be sure to ask this question when sourcing your colostrum tablets. The tablets contain a blend of colostrum powder, milk powder, tabletting aids and vanilla flavour. The reason why this product cannot be just pure powder is because colostrum cannot be pressed into a tablet on its own we need to use the New Zealand milk powder to bind it and to make it pleasant to taste we add a vanilla flavouring.  We are able to offer you excellent value at a very reasonable price. Please feel free to compare.

A number of research papers have recently been completed which show promising results with the use of bovine colostrum in sport's medicine.

It is also shown to help reduce recovery time from injury and in some cases, build lean tissue.

The unique compounds contained in colostrum assists in speeding up post training recovery and tissue repair.


There are a number of studies which report on the use and supplementation of bovine colostrum enhancing the human immune system, improving recovery times post surgery or illness. Boosting the human immune system helps fend off colds, flu and other viral and bacterial illnesses.
