Lactoferrin, a minor fraction of whey, appears to have a wide variety of
uses in biological systems and is considered a first line of immune
defense in the human body. Though a natural component of cows and human
mothers milk, lactoferrin is found throughout the human body.22,23
studies examining lactoferrin as a supplement and its beneficial
effects on immunity have been quite promising.24-26 Lactoferrin helps
maintain a proper level of good bacteria in the intestinal tract,
while controlling the number of bad bacteria.27-30 Lactoferrin is also
known to have an extremely high affinity to bind to iron.22-32
show that apolactoferrin, the iron-depleted form of lactoferrin, has
unique benefits and may be superior to lactoferrin for
supplementation.33 Life Extensions lactoferrin supplement and whey
protein powders contain only the superior apolactoferrin form of this
important whey isolate.
