Part of the first line of defense against infection, Lactoferrin (apolactoferrin) Caps utilize the iron-free form derived from bovine whey. This superior form helps support the immune system and balances the good and bad bacteria in the intestinal tract.

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 ("first milk") has the highest concentration, followed by human milk, then cow’s milk, lactoferrin is found throughout the human body.37,38

Published studies examining lactoferrin as a supplement and its beneficial effects on immunity have been quite promising.39-43 Lactoferrin helps maintain a proper level of "good" bacteria in the intestinal tract, while controlling the number of "bad" bacteria.44-48 Lactoferrin is also known to have an extremely high affinity to bind to iron.49-51

Studies show that apolactoferrin, the iron-depleted form of lactoferrin, has unique benefits and may be superior to lactoferrin for supplementation.52-56 Life Extension’s lactoferrin supplement from bovine whey contains only the superior apolactoferrin form of this important whey.

Lactoferrin is part of the innate immune system, the first line of defense to protect us from infection.1 Because of this, it has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.2 It has also been shown to support bone formation.3,4 Lactoferrin looks promising in the support of breast cancer.5
