Lactoferrin is an iron-binding glycoprotein found in human and bovine milk that has powerful immune boosting effects. Its multifunctional role also encompasses antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory activities. Neonatal units successfully use lactoferrin to help reduce infection in hospitals, and baby formulas manufactured in China are now being supplemented with lactoferrin. Being an immunomodulator, lactoferrin helps manage the inflammatory response, making it beneficial for such conditions as high cholesterol, gastrointestinal inflammation, respiratory tract inflammation and acne. Lactoferrin may also stimulate the cells responsible for bone growth.
Animal studies confirm that the combination of lactoferrin and chemotherapy is more effective than either treatment alone. Lactoferrin can therefore be used to increase the effectiveness of conventional treatments and also to prevent secondary infections. This is a significant advantage because infections secondary to immune dysfunction are a leading cause of mortality in cancer patients receiving radiation or chemotherapy treatments. Lactoferrin-ULTRA contains 89% protein by weight, a factor which makes it very beneficial for cancer patients, for whom the ability to maintain adequate nutrition is essential for a favorable prognosis. Proteins are particularly important to prevent the development of cancer cachexia, a condition characterized by weight loss, muscular atrophy, weakness, and anorexia.
Those requiring powerful immune system support and supplementary protein during weakened conditions and illness will greatly benefit from adding AOR’s Lactoferrin-ULTRA to their diet.
Lactoferrin-Ultra combines an ultra-high dose of lactoferrin with whey protein isolate and a high-protein concentrate. Lactoferrin-Ultra is a source of essential and branched chain amino acids for protein synthesis, that helps build antibodies and also builds and repairs body tissues. Lactoferrin-Ultra uses cross-flow microfiltration to minimize unnecessary carbohydrates and saturated fat, while retaining all bioactive peptide subfractions.
