There is a new supplement kid on the block. It’s called Ultimate IgG Immune and Digestive Support from Just Thrive Health.
You know I’m always sharing the latest in supplements and information like this, so here you go.
First, in case you need a little refresher course check out IgG vs. IgE HERE.
Ultimate IgG Immune and Digestive Support

Just Thrive’s Ultimate IgG contains 4 different forms of Immunoglobulins: IgG, IgM, IgA and Bovine Serum Albumin.
To put it simply, Immunoglobulin’s are extremely effective components in the gut that Detox, Rebuild and Support.
We can break these three down as such:
- Removes pathogens,
- Binds up the toxic byproducts of pathogenic bacteria,
- Neutralizes any toxins introduced from outside the body like pesticides, heavy metals, etc.
Damaged mucosal lining is restored.
Immune response is enhanced.
Here are some more questions and answers about the Ultimate IgG Immune and Digestive Support.
How does Ultimate IgG compare to other retail formulas?
There is no real competition for Just Thrive’s Ultimate IgG.
The forms of IgG in Just Thrive Ultimate IgG have been well studied and demonstrated significant benefit in two different clinical studies for two different high-risk populations, each with auto-immune conditions.
Currently, there is only one other IgG product in the retail market and it has:
- Only 40% IgG levels vs Ultimate IgG with 50%.
- No published studies backing it.
The greatest retail competition is IgG-containing Colostrum products:
- Low amount: Typically Colostrum contains only about 12% IgG versus Ultimate IgG at 50%.
- Dairy-based: Increasing Colostrum intake to increase IgG levels also increases your exposure to dairy allergen and any other potentially undesirable components in the product.
- Potential contaminants: Any animal-derived product, including Colostrum, can potentially also have many other undesirable and/or toxic components in it unless the company is doing a very high level of purification.
- No published studies: If the Colostrum lacks clinical studies, you don’t know exactly what the effects are.
Is Colostrum superior to IgG because it naturally contains additional, useful components such as lactoferrin, PRPs, etc.?
While those naturally occurring components are important, unfortunately,
- They are in extremely low amounts in Colostrum and
- Many commercial Colostrum products don’t reveal how much of each component is in the product, so you have no idea how much you’re getting.
In order increase your chances of experiencing actual efficacy while reducing your risk for contamination, we recommend taking the isolated, purified version, based on specific and clinically validated doses.
p.s. Is it confusing when you see terms like PRP? I’ve got you covered with the brand new Gutsy Glossary HERE. Save the page so you always can go back and refer to it.
What are the toxic byproducts potentially contained Colostrum?
Most Colostrum comes from commercial (not organic) milk. All milk contains relatively high levels of fat. Toxins to which the cow is exposed or consumes through commercial feed (pesticides, Roundup, Bovine Growth Hormone, heavy metals, etc.) are deposited in her fat and appear in concentrated levels in her milk.
For example, we know that testing has shown high levels of glyphosate herbicide in human breast milk, even in mothers consuming a largely organic diet.
Again, any animal-derived product must be produced using only the highest and most stringent of standards, preferably pharmaceutical, in order to guarantee that undesirable components will not be in the finished product.
Could these 3 gut microbiome support products be considered a Post-Natal Super Formula appropriate for both mother and child?
Ultimate IgG is the perfect complement to the spore-based Probiotic & Antioxidant and the Precision Prebiotic since each product focuses on a different aspect of gut health.
- Supports the increase of low populations of critically protective, keystone gut bacteria, and
- Promotes diversity of strains in the gut. Diversity is associated with all aspects of health, including longevity, brain development, modulation of inflammation, etc.
Spore-based PRObiotic & Antioxidant
- Enhances all those effects by killing pathogens and supporting beneficial bacteria, and has been shown in clinical studies to
- Helps seal the tight junctions in the gut and
- Encourages the regrowth of blunted microvilli necessary for correct nutrient absorption.
You’ll find both the pre- and probiotic supplements HERE.
Ultimate IgG functions to profoundly detox the gut environment.
POST-NATAL SUPER FORMULA
Illness risk factors that affect that person for their entire lifetime are heavily determined by what happens in the gut microbiome in the first 2 ½ – 3 years of life and we cannot overstate the importance and long-term benefits of ensuring a balanced gut microbiome during that critical time period!
(p.s. YES, yes I will be giving this to my children, especially given that cold and flu season is right around the corner.)
Mum’s gut microbiome changes dramatically after pregnancy which can lead to post-natal stress. Often referred to as “Fourth Trimester” problems linked to hormone surges, this condition can develop into post-partum depression/psychosis, the emergence of an autoimmune disease, long-term immune and hormonal imbalance, etc., all of which are strongly linked to a pre-existing dysfunction in a mother’s gut microbiome.
How does the Ultimate IgG Immune and Digestive Support work in conjunction with my Probiotic?
Immunoglobulin G works together with probiotics to boost the number of beneficial gut bacteria and strengthen the intestinal barrier. By eliminating harmful antigens, IgG makes it easier for probiotics to survive and thrive in the gut. Plus, IgG and probiotics join forces to support optimal intestinal barrier function.

By the way, I love Just Thrive and have been a huge fan for about a year now. The highly respected Kiran Krishnan has this to say about the company
It’s incumbent upon any company in the health space to do research and increase the scientific knowledge base… 99% of the companies of all the products sitting on the shelves do no research at all. Imagine if even only 10% of those companies invested in research, all we would learn and all the benefit we would gain from that scientific knowledge! So, here at Just Thrive, we’re doing our part.
You will heal. I will help.
