binds iron to itself, starving viruses and bacteria of the iron they need in order to survive and thrive

Bactericidal

binds to bacterial walls and kills bacteria

Stimulates innate immunity

enhances the body’s immune response & improves the activation of white blood cells that respond to viruses and bacteria
