Lactoferrin, natural antiviral, antifungal  and antibacterial agent, manufactured from milk protein from New Zealand's antibiotic free, BSE free, pasture fed, out door herds, supplied direct from New Zealand at lowest prices  - free airmail anywhere and no minimum order.

There is mounting research supporting the health benefits of Lactoferrin  This research indicates that Lactoferrin has an antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal effect, as well as an immunomodulating characteristic. It can be taken by any age group and has no side effects. This is a very exciting product for sufferers of Leaky Gut Syndrome. A recent study has found that it helps to offset the effects of taking NSAIDs ( Non Steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs). It also helps to reduce the side effects of taking antibiotics.

 Recent evidence also suggests that therapy currently used to treat Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, a major cause of upper gastrointestinal disorders, is unsuccessful in around 25 percent of cases. A new study, published in May 2007 issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology, finds that adding a bovine protein called lactoferrin to the existing treatment may yield more effective results, with fewer of the side effects associated with common antibiotic treatment.

Lactoferrin has previously been found to be effective at inhibiting the growth of microorganisms and reducing the side effects of antibiotics, respectively, but the new study marks the first time that they have been used together to treat H. pylori. The study found that the infection-causing bacterium was eliminated in more patients treated with the traditional therapy plus lactoferrin than with the existing treatments and may be used without risk of resistance.

Lead author Nicola de Bortoli, M.D., Ph.D., says that "data suggest that antibiotic resistance is frequent and clinicians are realizing that use of an additional agent may be necessary for therapy."


Lactoferrin plays several biological roles related to its iron binding ability immune support and antioxidant activities. Lactoferrin prevents the growth of pathogens, has anti bacterial, anti fungal, and anti viral activity, controls cell tissue damage caused by oxidation and also facilitates iron transportation. Bacterial, viral and fungal infections are dependent on a supply of free iron for reproduction and survival. Lactoferrin binds the free iron and reduces the amount of oxidative free radicals released during the inflammation process.

Lactoferrin promotes intestinal health by scavenging iron and balancing healthy flora in the G.I. tract. By modulating healthy levels of iron in the body, Lactoferrin plays a key role in maintaining overall health. Some in vitro studies suggest that lactoferrin acts synergistically with antifungal agents.


Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein that belongs to the iron transporter or transferrin family. It was originally isolated from bovine milk, where it is found as a minor protein component of whey proteins (see Whey Proteins). Lactoferrin contains 703 amino acids and has a molecular weight of 80 kilodaltons. In addition to its presence in milk, it is also found in exocrine secretions of mammals and is released from neutrophil granules during inflammation.

Lactoferrin is considered a multifunctional or multi-tasking protein. It appears to play several biological roles. Owing to its iron-binding properties, lactoferrin is thought to play a role in iron uptake by the intestinal mucosa of the suckling neonate. That is, it appears to be the source of iron for breast-fed infants. It also appears to have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory activities.

Three isoforms of lactoferrin have been isolated: lactoferrin-alpha, lactoferrin-beta and lactoferrin-gamma. Lactoferrin-beta and lactoferrin-gamma have RNase activity, whereas lactoferrin-alpha does not. Receptors for lactoferrin are found in monocytes, lymphocytes, neutrophils, intestinal tissue and on certain bacteria. Lactoferrin is abbreviated LF and Lf. Bovine lactoferrin is abbreviated bLF.

Bovine lactoferrin, derived from whey proteins, is marketed as a nutritional supplement. Supplemental lactoferrin typically contains low amounts of iron.


How it works

The possible antibacterial activity of supplemental lactoferrin might be accounted for, in part, by its ability to strongly bind iron. Iron is essential to support the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Lactoferrin may also inhibit the attachment of bacteria to the intestinal wall. A breakdown product of lactoferrin is the peptide lactoferricin. Lactoferricin, classified as a bioactive peptide, may also have antibacterial, as well as antiviral, activity. The possible antiviral activity of supplemental lactoferrin may be due to its inhibition of virus-cell fusion and viral entry into cells.

A few mechanisms are proposed for lactoferrin's possible immunomodulatory activity. Lactoferrin may promote the growth and differentiation of T lymphocytes. Lactoferrin appears to bind uniquely in the region of major histocompatability (MHC) proteins and the CD4 and CD8 determinants on T4 (helper) and T8 (suppressor) lymphocytes; it bears sequence homologies with the MHC Class II determinant. Lactoferrin also appears to play a role in the regulation of cytokines and lymphokines, such as tumor necrosis (TNF)-alpha and interleukin (IL)-6. Lactoferrin's possible antioxidant activity may also contribute to its possible immunomodulatory activity.

Lactoferrin's possible antioxidant activity can also be accounted for by its ability to strongly bind iron. Free iron is a major contributor to the generation of reactive oxygen species via the Fenton reaction.

Lactoferrin's possible anti-inflammatory action may be accounted for by its possible antioxidant and immunomodulatory activities.


Little is known of the pharmacokinetics of oral lactoferrin. Lactoferrin appears much more resistant to proteolytic action than most dietary proteins. Lactoferrin is digested in the intestine to the bioactive peptide lactoferricin. Most of the possible actions of oral lactoferrin may be confined to the gut. There is some preliminary evidence that lactoferrin and lactoferricin may be absorbed, in part, from the lumen of the small intestine into enterocytes and that these molecules enter other cells as well. However, this is unclear.

Benefits In Summary

A number of in vitro and animal studies have shown that lactoferrin has various bactericidal and fungicidal effects. It has exhibited significant activity against Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Staphyloccocus aureus, Candida albicans and other pathogens in these studies. In vitro, lactoferrin has similarly shown some significant activity against HIV, herpes simplex virus type 1, hepatitis C virus, cytomegalovirus and some other viruses.


Pregnant women and nursing mothers should avoid using lactoferrin supplements.
