Lactoferrin (apolactoferrin) Caps
60 capsules | Item Catalog Number: 01681
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 antimicrobial activity and is part of the innate defense. Though human colostrum (ñfirst milkî) has the highest concentration, followed by human milk, then cowÍs milk, lactoferrin is found throughout the human body.
Published studies examining lactoferrin as a supplement and its beneficial effects on immunity have been quite promising. Lactoferrin helps maintain a proper level of ñgoodî bacteria in the intestinal tract, while controlling the number of ñbadî bacteria. Lactoferrin isalso known to have an extremely high affinity to bind to iron.
Studies show that apolactoferrin, the iron-depleted form of lactoferrin, has unique benefits and may be superior to lactoferrin for supplementation. Life ExtensionÍs lactoferrin supplement from bovine whey contains only the superior apolactoferrin form of this important whey.
