Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® Science
What is Lactoferrin?
Lactoferrin (LF) is a metal-binding glycoprotein that is normally synthesized inside all mammals, including humans. It is a single-gene product (“bio-replenishment”) that regulates several important physiological pathways, making it essential for life.
What are Bio-Replenishments?
Bio-replenishment molecules are active regulatory molecules that are naturally synthesized INSIDE the body. In contrast, most vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, etc. are produced OUTSIDE the body.
What is the role for Lactoferrin in the body?
LF is a multi-functional bio-replenishment; its primary role is to provide total body protection (innate host defense) and to maintain a healthy physiology (regularity).
Why does our body need Lactoferrin supplementation?
The dietary and working habits, stress and environment in our modern life style deplete and compromise our innate defenses. The outcome – an increased susceptibility to infections, irregularity and pain. Replenishment of the body with LF (supplementation) could provide a balance to the innate defense.
What are the benefits of taking Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is a nutraceutical replenishment for total body health, regularity and balance. Specific health benefits include stimulation of beneficial intestinal flora, prolonged antioxidant activity, and help to modulate immune responses.
What is unique about Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Unlike any lactoferrin supplements produced from whey proteins and/or colostrum; Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is derived directly from cow milk obtained from a pristine geographic region. The cows' are non-GMO; the milk they produce is antibiotic-free, hormone-free, kosher and halal certified. The product is further cleansed to ultra-purity to enhance bioavailability and functionality of lactoferrin using a unique patent-pending protein technology. In fact, it takes about 3 quarts of milk to produce a single capsule (60 mg lactoferrin content) of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®.
What is the rationale behind the trademark – Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Purity, bioavailability and functionality of the protein are the essential criteria for a proper LF supplementation. Sourcing of milk from healthy dairy herds for LF isolation sets the first gold standard. A proprietary process based on a non-thermal technology to prevent protein denaturization during the purification of LF from milk sets the second gold standard. Finally, a patent-pending technology to ensure highest purity, maximum bioavailability and optimum functionality for the LF protein sets the ultimate third gold standard. Based on a suggested average daily intake value, a daily dosage of sixty milligrams of LF for a month is 1.8 grams. Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® - is sum of the above golden standards.
Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® Safety
What are the side effects from taking Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
None (to our knowledge). However, if any discomfort is noticed by consuming Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® immediately stop taking the product and consult your primary health care provider.
Can individuals with lactose-intolerance take Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Yes. The milk ‘protein’ lactoferrin is different from the milk ‘sugar’ lactose.
Can individuals with milk protein allergy take Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Yes. Milk proteins that are reportedly associated with allergic reactions are: casein, casein derivatives (sodium and/or calcium-based), lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin and bovine serum albumin. LF does not belong to this group of milk allergens. To our knowledge - any LF-associated or LF-mediated milk protein allergic reactions in human subjects has not been reported. However, if the person has any medical condition (including any milk protein allergy), it is advisable to consult with that person’s health care provider before use of this or any supplement.
Can individuals with gluten and/or soy intolerance take Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Yes. There is NO gluten or soy in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®.
Can pregnant women take Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Yes. Iron-deficiency induced anemia is common during pregnancy. Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® could help iron absorption and boost immune defense. In fact, an increased daily dosage of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® (120 mg, i.e. 2 capsules) could provide a health benefit for pregnant women. However, if the person has any medical condition (including pregnancy), it is advisable to consult with that person’s health care provider before use of this or any supplement.
Can children take Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Yes. It is important that the daily diets of children above the age of 4, are supplemented with Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®. As an iron-binding protein, lactoferrin helps in the intestinal absorption of iron – a vital nourishment factor for the growth and development of children. However, it is advisable to consult with the child’s health care provider before use of this or any supplement.
Can infants and children under the age 4 can take Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Not Recommended. Though, lactoferrin is considered as an essential nutraceutical for infants and children under the age 4, and is added to several infant formulae worldwide (since 1986); this food application is regulated by federal agencies in respective countries.
Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® Directions of Use
What is the suggested dosage for Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
A single capsule of 60 mg/day is the suggested dosage as part of regular replenishment for a normal healthy individual. However, depending upon the life-style, age and health-status, increasing the dosage to 2 or 3 capsules per day could benefit certain individuals.
Should Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® be taken with food or on an empty stomach; daytime or bedtime?
Either way and conveniently at any time.
Can Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® be taken with other dietary supplements?
Yes. In fact, Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® constitutes as essential core nutrition for total body health including the maintenance of a healthy gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® would help intestinal absorption and further enhance the benefits of other dietary supplements.
Should Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® not be taken with certain types of medications?
Lactoferrin is present in all our bodily fluids and secretions readily for any drug exposure and interactions, irrespective of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® supplementation. However, if the person has any medical condition (under any medication), it is advisable to consult with that person’s health care provider before use of this or any supplement.
