Personally, I have been using Lactoferrin for the past five years and I rarely if ever have experience a cold or flu that sends me to bed.
I attribute this fortune to a multitude of reasons. I live the life I preach. My diet, exercise, stress management and sleep regimens are good and you all know them and hopefully follow them by now. But as usual, there is always another piece in the puzzle of perpetual improvement.
In addition to the above, I also take Lactoferrin at the first sign of a cold or flu. If I start getting a scratchy throat, muscle aches, the crummy feeling we all know to be the sign of a cold coming on, I immediately start taking Lactoferrin. I take 2 capsules three times a day for 5 days.
I have been recommending Lactoferrin to the patients I see in my office for years. I have yet to have a person tell me Lactoferrin is short of magical; so by popular demand I have now added Lactoferrin to our online store.
Before I suggest you all get Lactoferrin and carry it with you at all times, I want to tell you the medical information I have about it. I will use limited medical jargon, but I have to give you the facts and they do include medical information.
Lactoferrin is a protein. It is derived from whey and it belongs to a family of proteins called glycoproteins. Lactoferrin is specifically involved with iron transport in the gut and all the secretions our bodies contain it (like saliva, tears, and breast milk). Lactoferrin in animal and in vitro studies has shown anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and immunomodulatory activity.
That means it helps our bodies fight infections.
There are no side-effects reported with Lactoferrin and it has been around for more than 10 years.
The reason I found Lactoferrin and recommend it instead of ecchinacea or medical antivirals ( like Tamiflu), is that Lactoferrin is a bioidentical substance similar in molecular formulation to our own body’s own. Because it is bioidentical, chances are we will not have adverse reactions to Lactoferrin and its action will just complement our body’s immune reaction.
