Colostrum Statement From WADA
“WADA recommends extreme caution with colostrum (which contains IGF-1) since some studies consider that IGF-1 ingested orally can influence the plasma level of IGF-1, which could consequently trigger an adverse analytical finding. Please note that it is not in WADA’s mandate to endorse or regulate dietary or nutritional supplements. We do not control the quality or the claims of the supplements industry. For more information on supplements we invite you to consult WADA questions and answers on dietary and nutritional supplements.
