:: Lactoferrin



» What is Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is a single-chain glycoprotein, a bioactive peptide with many important functions in the human body.

One of the most important functions of Lactoferrin is to transport iron around the body.

Lactoferrin is present in many bodily fluids such as tears, saliva and breast milk. The strongest concentrations are found in human colostrum (first milk) and is particularly important as it may be the only source of iron for new born infants. It is also believed to be responsible for passing immunity from mother to baby. Lactoferrin is also present in bovine milk, however human milk contains up to fifteen times more Lactoferrin and is the second most abundant protein found in human milk.
