PHOENIX, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- APS BioGroup, formerly Advanced Protein Systems, the world's largest producer of colostrum products, announces its new company name and expanded focus to include advancements in private label contract manufacturing for health supplements and the introduction of Immulox®, an immune support product and supplement ingredient derived from colostrum.
Colostrum is nature's perfect first food -- the pre-milk substance produced from all mammals at birth that supplies a perfect combination of immune and growth factors to insure the health, vitality, and growth. APS BioGroup only uses high-quality first milking bovine colostrum collected within 16 hours after the birth of the calf. Bovine colostrum balances the immune system and is a natural source of many vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids. Supplementation of colostrum enhances the efficiency of amino acid and carbohydrate fuel uptake by the intestine, making more nutrients are made available for muscle cells and other vital tissues and organs.
"APS BioGroup is now much more than the world's largest producer of bovine colostrum products," said Bob Davies, president and CEO of APS BioGroup. "We are a diversified producer of health products, including the new Immulox® product, and a respected contract manufacturer providing customer support from an outstanding, expert team that even includes a first-ever staff pharmacist."
New Immulox® Product
Immulox® is produced exclusively by APS BioGroup using a patented processes proprietary to APS BioGroup and is available in a consumer-ready oral spray delivery system or as bulk powder for incorporation in dry blends, capsules or tablets. The key difference between Immulox® products and other immune support products is the presence of a high level of proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs). Dr. Andrew Keech, founder and managing director of APS BioGroup, developed Immulox® as a product with high levels of PRPs. PRPs occur naturally in humans and other mammals. They have been shown to bring the immune system in to homeostatic balance.
"We are now happy to offer Immulox® and colostrum to the world as a vital ingredients to dietary supplements and more," said Keech. "Studies have shown that PRPs are important to maintaining health."
