Laktoferrin With Colostrum x 90 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
Laktoferrin with Colostrum provides purified lactoferrin in a base of colostrum, and is prepared with lysozyme. Colostrum contains immunoglobulins IgG, IgA, and IgM, nucleotides, gamma-interferon, orotic acid, enzymes, and vitamin A, E, and B12.
Colostrum is the fluid produced from the mother's breasts during the first few days after birth, before the first milk is produced. Colostrum supplies nutrients, growth factors, and antibodies that start development of passive immunity in the breast-fed newborn. Many substances found in bovine colostrum have been shown to be similar or identical to those found in human and other mammalian colostrum. Bovine colostrum contains three to four times more protein than does regular cow's milk, and most of this protein is immunoglobulin-rich whey protein.
Lactoferrin is a peptide glycoprotein found in small amounts in colostrum, in mammalian exocrine secretions. It has important iron-binding, immunomodulatory, and antioxidant activities.
Lactoferrin binds strongly to iron, potentially depriving undesirable gut microbes from iron needed for their growth, and may help inhibit these microbes from attaching to the intestinal wall. Lactoferrin also produces the bioactive peptide lactoferricin.
Lysozyme is an enzyme found in tears, saliva, egg whites and in the lysomes of phagocytic cells. It can hydrolyse the 1,4-beta links between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetylglucosamine, thus cleaving an important polymer of the cell wall of many bacteria.
