Lactoferrin: A Key to Good Health

Lactoferrin is a protein found in milk and other bodily fluids that has been shown to have a variety of health benefits. These benefits include reducing inflammation, boosting immunity, and promoting gut health. Because many people don’t drink enough milk (lactose intolerance for example), Lactoferrin is most commonly taken in supplement form, and it is generally considered safe for most people.

What is Lactoferrin?

It is a type of protein known as an antimicrobial peptide, and is found in high concentrations in milk and other bodily fluids such as tears and saliva.

Health Benefits of Lactoferrin

One of its most well-known health benefits is its ability to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a normal response by the body to injury or illness; however, chronic inflammation can lead to a variety of serious health conditions, such as heart disease and cancer. Lactoferrin has been shown to reduce inflammation by inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Lactoferrin has also been shown to boost immunity. This is due to its ability to increase the production of white blood cells, which are the body’s first line of defense against infection.

Finally, Lactoferrin has been shown to promote gut health by increasing the growth of good bacteria while inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria.
