Importance of the Immune System

The digestive system plays a vital role in overall health. That's because the healthy bacteria there help support intestinal health and the immune system. Foods or nutrients that support the immune system can be beneficial.


What is Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is an important protein found in breast milk that helps support digestive health. In fact, high levels of Lactoferrin are found in colostrum, the very early breast milk that provides important immune support for newborns during the first weeks of life. It is also found in mature breast milk.


What does Lactoferrin do?

While dietary lactoferrin is digested and available to act throughout the body, some dietary lactoferrin is not digested and can act in the gut. Clinical studies have confirmed this protein's ability to support immune health for infants and toddlers.
