Enhances immunity
is an iron transporter protein that is a natural part of the human defense system. It is a first line of defense found in various secretions such as saliva, tears and milk, and it is important for fighting infections and stimulating the immune system. It also improves nutrient absorption and stimulates bone growth.

Anti-microbial actions
Since iron is an essential nutrient for harmful bacteria, lactoferrin's iron binding ability restricts pathogenic growth. It also prevents harmful bacteria from attaching to intestinal walls. One of lactoferrin's breakdown products inhibits viral access to cells. Not all bacteria are harmful, and some are essential to health. Lactoferrin is an important factor for the proper composition of healthy bacteria in the gut. Its effects on the immune system help to fight infection and cancer, and also regulate the immune system to avoid excessive inflammation.

Multiple roles
roles in fighting infection, balancing the immune system and maintaining healthy cell growth, bone health, and gastrointestinal health make it a very important nutrient for overall health. It is extremely resistant to degradation in the gastrointestinal tract, making it an effective supplement.

Lactoferrin is an iron transporter glycoprotein belonging to the transferrin family. It is the second most abundant protein found in colostrums, which is not surprising as lactoferrin is important for the proper development of intestinal flora, skeletal structure and the immune system of newborns. Evidence suggests that supplementation with lactoferrin increases the activity and stimulates the production of certain immune cells.

• The anti-oxidant and antibacterial activity of lactoferrin comes from its ability to bind iron. Iron is a well¬known oxidant and its presence is essential for bacterial growth. The combined action of transferrin and lactoferrin restrict the amount of free iron available making levels insufficient for bacterial growth. This also suppresses free radical formation.

Lactoferrin breakdown products have an even greater anti-microbial activity.

Lactoferrin is a useful transport molecule for the supplementation of iron.

Lactoferrin's antiviral activity is though to be caused by the molecule itself and not by the molecule's affinity for iron because no other transferrin molecule with an affinity for iron exhibits antiviral activity.

Lactoferrin was shown to increase bone formation through the stimulation of bone building cells (osteoblasts). Studies have showed that lactoferrin binds to cultured osteoblastic cells and leads to their proliferation and cellular division.

Lactoferrin stimulates the proliferation of chondrocytes.

Lactoferrin acts as an iron chelator and is important for cell growth and differentiation.

Lactoferrin inhibits the development of colon cancer in rats.

Lactoferrin inhibits the infection of human embryonic lung cells by both herpes and cytomegaloviruses.

Preliminary research indicates that lactoferrin is a potential therapeutic agent for bone disorders. It may be an important physiological regulator of bone formation and growth. It is not surprising that lactoferrin is found in such a high concentration in milk; infancy is a time when skeletal growth is occurring very rapidly.

Lactoferrin is a multitasking protein with several biological roles. Lactoferrin has been found to have antiviral, antineoplastic, antibacterial, antifungal, immunomodulating and anti-inflammatory activity. Lactoferrin also binds to some toxins and promotes the growth of certain cells. It is helpful for wound healing. It inhibits microbial growth and plays an important role in the formation of the newborn's intestinal flora by preventing the growth of pathogenic organisms.

Besides restricting bacterial growth by binding iron, lactoferrin prevents the attachment of bacteria to the intestinal wall thus preventing infection. Lactoferricin, a breakdown product of bovine lactoferrin is thought to inhibit viral cell fusion and viral access to cells. The immunomodulatory effects of lactoferrin come from its capacity to promote T cell growth and differentiation as well as its role in the regulation of cytokines.

Lactoferrin can help in the absorption and transport of iron, manganese, zinc and sugars. It is very important for the proper composition of the intestinal flora; it stimulates the production of gut endothelial cells and prevents the growth of pathogenic organisms while promoting the spread of the beneficial Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species.

Whether it is to improve nutrient absorption, promote healthy gut bacteria or enhance your immune system and prevent bacterial and viral activity, lactoferrin is a great choice.
