  • Lactoferrin is a substance belonging to the Cytokine family, Cytokines are responsible for coordinating the human cellular response that protects us from most infections, cancers and tumors.
  • The biological actions of lactoferrin under various experimental conditions are wide-ranging and include: inhibition of the survival or growth of many different pathogenic organisms; activation or stimulation of a variety of immune system cells; regulation of normal cell growth; and inhibition of abnormal tumor growth and spread of cancer cells in laboratory animals.
  • Physiological concentrations of lactoferrin are capable of killing or inhibiting the growth of a wide spectrum of infectious organisms including bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.
  • Lactoferrin is an exciting new supplement that may contribute to an increased likelihood of a positive outcome when used to support the body’s recovery from disease.
  • Lactoferrin’s overwhelming margin of safety, along with a rapidly accumulating body of clinical data and anecdotal accounts of its effects when taken by humans, suggests significant benefit when lactoferrin is used as a nutritional supplement in a wide range of infectious and life-threatening illnesses.
  • Lactoferrin is an antioxidant that scavenges free iron, helping to prevent uncontrolled iron based free radical reactions, thus protecting certain cells from peroxidation.
  • Lactoferrin is both an iron scavenger and donor (depending on the cellular environment),
  • It has been found to scavenge or donate iron at the appropriate times when the body is in need of the reaction.
  • Lactoferrin appears to modulate immune function through chemical mediators called cytokines.
  • Cytokines belong to a broad class of molecules that mediate interactions between various cells in the body. Cytokines that specifically mediate interactions between white blood cells, or leukocytes, are called interleukins.
  • LactoFact is a powerful tool providing an essential and rapid insight of the glycan content throughout all stages of production and quality control.
  • Fonterra has built a new dairy protein processing plant in order to meet growing demand for lactoferrin in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan.
  • The current market for bovine lactoferrin is thought to be worth around €100 million per year, with growth of about 20 per cent.
  • The majority of sales are in Asia where lactoferrin supplements are common and dairy companies fortify yoghurts with the protein.
