What is Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein that is found in milk and other fluids. Lactoferrin research studies have suggested that lactoferrin plays a key role in supporting the immune system, offering protection against infections, acts as a natural antioxidant, and helps to regulate the iron supply in the body. Lactoferrin can be found in bovine colostrum supplements and is a good way to supply your body with this crucial nutrient.
