Lactoferrin is one of the transferrin proteins that transfer iron to the cells and control the level of free iron in the blood and external secretions. It has is part of the innate defense. Though human colostrum (“first milk”) has the highest concentration, followed by human milk, then cow’s milk, lactoferrin is found throughout the human body.
Lactoferrin supports immunity by promoting “good” bacteria in the intestinal tract. Lactoferrin also has a high affinity to bind to iron.
Apolactoferrin, the iron-depleted form of lactoferrin, has unique benefits and may be superior to lactoferrin for supplementation. Life Extension’s lactoferrin supplement from bovine whey contains only the superior apolactoferrin form of this important whey.
Suggested Use: Take one capsule daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
