Understand How Lactoferrin Helps with Immune System

In June 2020, a University of Michigan research team had identified Lactoferrin from a library of 1425 FDA-approved compounds that promote healthy immune system. [1] Lactoferrin is a protein attained from mammalian milk. It’s known to have powerful antioxidant properties. It also acts as a powerful rein enforcement for immune health.   

In a different study, a team of Italian scientists, led by Luigi Rosa from the Department of Public Health and Infectious Diseases, University of Rome, Italy, had published a paper in September 2021 in an MDPI journal that’s known for its pioneer in scholarly open access publishing that’s based in Basel, Switzerland. They claim Lactoferrin (Lf), a glycoprotein found in cow or human milk, can be used to boost the immune system and support body recovery [2].

Human Lactoferrin synthesis is under hormonal control and therefore, diminishes with age. This explains why the elderly suffer from more severe symptoms as opposed to young children and indicates Lactoferrin treatment becomes increasingly effective with age.

The positive side is that bovine lactoferrin (bLf) possesses a high homology of gene sequence with similar functions to human lactoferrin (hLf). Therefore, humans can take bLf supplements orally to increase their Lf levels.   

Lactoferrin Supplement is Safe for Consumption

For several years now, various products containing Lf have been marketed as nutraceutical products. All of these products contain Lf derived from bovine milk (bLf), which possesses a high homology of gene sequence with similar functions to that of human Lf (hLf). Furthermore, bLf has been approved as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) compound by the United States Food and Drug Administration (USA FDA) as well as a dietary supplement by the European Food Safety Authority [1].
