- Benefits intestinal health.
- Powerful ability to bind iron.
- Has antioxidant properties
Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein derived from whey protein. One of the celebrated functions of lactoferrin is its powerful ability to bind iron (300 times that of serum transferrin). Ingestion of lactoferrin unshackles the immune-supporting peptide lactoferricin B. Lactoferrin also benefits the health of the intestines through the promotion of the growth of beneficial bacteria, including lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.
Lactoferrin is naturally present in the human body, with some of the highest levels in human milk and it is also present in other bodily fluids. Studies are attempting to discern the various physiological roles that lactoferrin plays. It has been demonstrated to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties. It also has antioxidant power.

Notes: Jarrow FORMULAS® Lactoferrin is an important immune supporting glycoprotein that is found in breast milk, tears, and other body fluids.* One of the biological activities of lactoferrin comes from its powerful ability to bind iron (300 times that of serum transferrin). Moreover, digestion of lactoferrin by gastric pepsin liberates the immune supporting peptide lactoferricin B.* Lactoferrin also benefits intestinal health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.*
