Lactoferrin (LF) is a 75 to 80-kDa metal-binding glycoprotein that is normally synthesized inside all mammals, including humans. It is a single-gene product (“bio-replenishment”) that is essential for life. LF concentration is highest in milk/colostrum, but it is also present in various other exocrine secretions (i.e. tears, saliva, sweat, cerebro-spinal, bronchial, gastric, seminal and vaginal fluids, etc.) that bathe the mucosal surfaces.
LF is a natural bioactive molecule with a multi-functional role in several important physiological pathways, such as:
LF turnover in humans is normally 60 mg/day. However, due to factors like poor diet, stressful lifestyle and toxic environment, we consume more than our body can produce. This imbalance can lead to LF deficiency, causing a host of health problems such as increased susceptibility to/ decreased ability to fight off infections and irregular digestion. To prevent these health problems, it is important to routinely replenish the body with pure and bio-functional LF.
Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is the first multi-patented, ultra pure and bio-functional lactoferrin (LF) nutritional supplement on the market. Only the LF in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® undergoes a patented treatment for contaminant reduction (TCR) process, resulting in LF with the highest quality and performance.
Informed-Sport is an independent third-party quality assurance program serving the sports nutrition industry. Every batch of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is tested for banned substances under the Informed-Sport Programme; products undergo rigorous testing at an ISO17025 accredited lab to provide the highest level of assurance that they are safer for athletes to use.
Proprietary Treatment for Contaminant Reduction (TCR) technology utilizes a special 3-tier (consisting of a surfactant, antioxidant, and polyphenol-tier) all-natural food-grade decontaminant system; this effectively removes microorganisms and endotoxins from milk, yielding the ultra-pure lactoferrin used in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®.
TCR technology provides unmatched lactoferrin benefits and functionality. The surfactant-tier increases bioavailability, ascorbate-tier potentiates antioxidant effect, and polyphenolic-tier enhances antimicrobial activity. The ultimate result is a precisely calibrated bioreplenishment – Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®, ready to perform a multi-functional role in your body.
The milk lactoferrin used in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is sourced from New Zealand, where the dairy animals are hormone-free, antibiotic-free, non-GMO, non-transgenic and raised in a natural environment. The health status of these animals is inspected regularly and certified by the New Zealand Ministry of Health.
The milk is collected under aseptic, cold processing conditions with automated technology. The milk is fractionated, ultra-filtered and the lactose-free 'lactoferrin' protein is isolated by chromatography. This is followed by freeze-drying to preserve multi-functional biological activity of the molecule. Also, the Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® formula contains no gluten.
Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is produced in a government certified manufacturing facility that meets current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) standards. All ingredients undergo meticulous testing at each stage of the production process by a trained team, resulting in the safest, highest quality products.
