Lactoferrin can be sourced from the milk of most mammals – it’s one of the extraordinary ingredients created by nature to offer a newborn optimal immunity. Our lactoferrin is gently microfiltered from premium cow’s milk and is 100% natural, meaning its antimicrobial, immune-modulating properties are carefully preserved.
Lactoferrin is a vital part of your body’s innate immune response
Lactoferrin stands guard at the gateways of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems – in fluids, tears and saliva – as our rapid response unit, ready to neutralise or suppress viruses or bacteria when they appear. It slows their growth, prevents them from reproducing, or kills them outright.
If pathogens enter, then lactoferrin recruits other immune cells for tactical support. This backup team is our body’s second shield against viruses and microbes and takes care of us if we have an infection.
The Last Stand
When the threat is under control lactoferrin slows down the backup response. Lactoferrin encourages homeostasis – body balance – by calling off the recruits and preventing our immune system from going into rescue overdrive.
