Jarrow Formulas Lactoferrin contains freeze dried lactoferrin, an important immune supporting glycoprotein that is found in breast milk, tears and saliva.
One of the biological activities of lactoferrin comes from its powerful ability to bind iron (300 times that of serum transferrin), which promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Moreover, digestion of lactoferrin by gastric pepsin liberates the immune supporting peptide lactoferricin B
Lactoferrin is a whey protein derived from milk. It is present in human breast milk, and is one of the important molecules that help newborns develop their immunity. Lactoferrin is a multitasking protein with several biological roles. Lactoferrin has been found to have antiviral, antineoplastic, antibacterial, antifungal, immunomodulating and anti-inflammatory activity. Lactoferrin has been clinically studied in neonatal units to prevent bacterial and viral infections during hospitalization. It is such a potent immunomodulator that it has been well-studied in cancer patients to help battle cancer and enhance patients’ immunity. Bovine lactoferrin is absorbable by humans and has the same mechanism of action.
Lactoferrin is freeze-dried and processed at low temperatures to preserve potency and activity.

Why does stress make us sick more easily?Most diseases that we are dealing with nowadays are chronic diseases as a result of poor lifestyle choices that will only affect us later in life. However, we can get sick much sooner when exposed to chronic stress. How can this happen?
Stress is defined as a series of events, starting with a stimulus leading to a stress response known as the 'fight-or-flight' reaction that can affect many body systems.
Physical or physiological stress is mostly short-lived, while psychological or emotional stress can last for a very long time.
Smile, don't kiss!
Despite the name, a cold is not what causes cold sores, but a virus infection, called herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is to blame. Cold sores usually are transmitted via well-meaning kisses and most already pick it up as a kid.
When someone gets infected with HSV-1, the virus makes its way through the skin and into a group of nerve cells (ganglion). The virus moves in here, takes a long snooze, and every now and then decides to wake up and cause a cold sore. Between outbreaks, HSV-1 hides inside nerve cells, so it's never completely cured.
Take 1 capsule per day with food, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
