Product Overview


  • Foundation for Longer Life
  • (Apolactoferrin)
  • Supports a Healthy Immune System
  • Dietary Supplement

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. In particular, lactoferrin provides antibacterial activity to human infants. Though human colostrum (“first milk”) has the highest concentration, followed by human milk, then cow’s milk, lactoferrin is found throughout the human body.

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

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

No side effects. I'm 50% sure it makes me sleep better. A very nice effect which I didn't expect.

Promissing product.

Posted by 4990678014269784219 on Dec 01, 2016

I have used it for ca. 2 weeks now. It seems to like me and I have not noticed any side symptoms. I use it every day. All I know is 2 of my close friends came down with the bad cold lately but not me.

Works for candida issues

Posted by 4668269587752432344 on Mar 08, 2015

I noticed less oral thrush when taking these, because it makes iron not available for candida to grow, so candida "dies". If you have anemia and candida, this is the product you want to take, because regular iron will only feed candida and your body won't get the iron, so you will still have anemia and ever bigger candida overgrowth.

helps me with lifting up ferritin levels

Posted by 5559359946988768708 on Oct 26, 2013

This is the "iron" I take to lift up my ferritin levels that are always way too low. Normal iron supplementation helps somewhat but not enough. From studies I understood that lactoferrin does not feed the bad bacteria in your gut, but helps to get the iron in your blood as needed. I tried it and works for me, I take 1 daily and my ferritin levels are normal now and have never been that high before (although still kind of low normal) - around 40 . Highly recommend it. It gave me lots more energy than normal iron.
