Laktoferrin with Colostrum contains purified lactoferrin in a base of colostrum and is prepared with lysozyme.
Lactoferrin, a peptide glycoprotein that belongs to the transferrin family, plays a role in binding and transporting iron in the body, as well as immunomodulatory and antioxidant activities.*
Colostrum is the fluid produced from the mammary glands of mammals during the first few days after birth before the first milk is produced. Colostrum supplies nutrients, growth factors, and antibodies that start the 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 humans 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. Colostrum contains many components that support the immune system, including insulin-like growth factors IGF-1 and IGF-2, transforming growth factor-beta (TGFbeta), epidermal growth
factor (EGF), lactoferrin, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, immunoglobulins IgG, IgA, and IgM, nucleotides, gamma interferon, orotic acid, enzymes, and vitamins.*
In addition, colostrum may contain colostrinin, also known as proline-rich polypeptide (PRP), another potential immunomodulator.* The combination of specific and nonspecific immunomodulatory components may together enhance protection and microbial balance of the gastrointestinal tract.
