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.

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.

The only apolactoferrin avaible on the market

Posted by 4627303587526566555 on Sep 05, 2013

Very good product. A bit pricey but consider that its a pure apolactoferrin - 100% iron bindin' capability. Studies has shown that only this form is effective aganist biofilms and candida harmful species. Im takin it also with lacotferrin, which i use as a immunostimulator and prebiotic. It gives higher chances that apolactoferrin took later is workin' as a biofilm destroyer.

mixed feelings

Posted by 5213421394283477705 on Jul 31, 2013

I have read a lot of good things about lactoferrin. I also think the quality of this brand is good. Therefore, it is one of the good lactoferrin in the market. However, no matter how many chances i gave it, it does not affect me well. It gives me a jittery feeling. It gives me energy but not nice energy, more like anxiety type. It is most probably related to my messy female hormones. Nevertheless, the effect is negative. Further, it could be a coincidence but I got sick when starting this product, after a long time without having even a cold.
