Extra support for your digestion, immune system & when recovering from illness
Maintaining a strong and healthy immune system had made its way high up on the list for many people, particularly those with active lifestyles. Especially in the past few years where we have become more conscious and sensitive to keeping our defenses up as much as we can.
There is a large spectrum of products available to help support a healthy immune system, but we’re going to take a closer look at Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® and see how this could be helpful in your active lifestyle.
What is Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
The primary function of Lactoferrin is to play a role in supporting immunity and to help maintain a healthy physiology. It also has been demonstrated to have important roles in maintaining skeletal structure, supporting a healthy digestive system, and facilitating nutrient and mineral absorption.
Who is Lactoferrin for?
With all the ‘will’ in the world, we can be exposed to a toxic environment, experience excessive stress, exercise gets held up by an injury, and at times our diet can suffer as a result. Our reserves can deplete faster than they are restored and as a result, we can end up with an imbalance or deficiency of Lactoferrin in the body.
Daily replenishment of Lactoferrin is one way that you can rest assured that your body is receiving adequate Lactoferrin.
DID YOU KNOW? Approximately 80% of the immune system is in the digestive tract.
How Does Lactoferrin Work?
Lactoferrin is a multi-functional protein that plays a role in several vital physiological processes in the body. In short, it’s a pretty impressive protein!
As a metal binding protein, Lactoferrin promotes the bio-availability and absorption of iron and other trace metals that helps modulate the body's natural immune responses. Lactoferrin has been demonstrated to play in important role in supporting digestive health. Lactoferrin also promotes prebiotic activity. This molecule helps lay down the environment for the survival and growth of beneficial microflora (probiotics) in the gut.
Lactoferrin was scientifically characterised over 60 years ago – so you can be sure it’s not a new science, nor is it a ‘fad’. We encourage you to do your own research into the additional clinical significance of this incredibly clever protein.
Why Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®?
Unlike many other Lactoferrin supplements extracted from whey or colostrum, Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is derived from pure cow's milk. The milk is sourced from healthy cows living in a clean, natural environment, consuming a wholesome, nutritious diet. The protein is extracted using a proprietary freeze-drying technique (rather than heat) to ensure that the structure and functionality of the protein is preserved.
DID YOU KNOW? It takes about 2.5 litres of milk to produce a single capsule (containing 60 mg of Lactoferrin) of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®.
The lactoferrin in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® undergoes a patented three-step Treatment for Contaminant Reduction (TCR) process to enhance bioavailability and functionality.
The lactoferrin used in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is harvested from pure milk produced by dairy cows living in pristine New Zealand. This is the only place where the government will certify that their dairy cows are free of certain diseases and are not subjected to any unnecessary antibiotics, hormones or GMOs.
When manufacturing any product that is ingested, the quality of the raw ingredients will determine the quality of the finished product. The better quality the starting material, the better the end product, right?
One of the reasons why we love Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® so much is because it is produced in a government certified manufacturing facility that meets current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) standards. All of the ingredients undergo meticulous testing at each stage of the production process by a trained team, resulting in the safest, highest quality products. We know that we are providing a quality product to our customers.

"As an active marathon and ultrarunner I use Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® daily as part of my supplement regime. My experience is that I get a better nutritional uptake during the races, and recovers faster. During active training periods or races, I increase the dosage as I need a higher dosage to replenish better. I did 7 marathons in 7 days recently, and two capsules in the evening, after the race and two in the morning worked well for me! I believe Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® helped me to preserve the health of the gastrointestinal system during such an exhausting challenge and the ability of Lactoferrin to enhance the body’s natural antioxidant response, is important when doing such endurance races."
