The 'Lactoferrin' Molecule

What is Lactoferrin?

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.   

What is the role of Lactoferrin?

LF is a natural bioactive molecule with a multi-functional role in several important physiological pathways, such as: 

  1. Reinforcing innate host defense (immunity) 
  2. Promoting healthy intestinal flora/function (digestion) 
  3. Regulating cellular metabolism (energy/bio-redox)
  4. Boosting fertility (reproduction)  
  5. Supporting physiological development (growth)  

Why do we need Lactoferrin?

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.

Research & Development

Bio-Replenishment Theory

Bio-Replenishment is the innate ability of a living organism to continuously refill its expended (depleted) chemicals that are vital to maintain homeostasis and negative entropy, while aging.

Principles of bioQuad

Life is a chemo-osmotic energy processing system that operates under four interlinked biological quadrants, namely: bio-REDOX, bio-REPLENISHMENT, bio-RYTHYM and bio-FORMAT.

Lactoferrin Gold 1.8®

Product Information

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. 

Health Benefits*

  • Reinforces Innate Immune Response
  • Supports Healthy Intestinal Tract
  • Provides Potent Prebiotic Activity
  • Delivers Powerful Antioxidant Effect

Product Features

Approved for Athletes

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.

Ultra Pure

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. 

All Natural, Non-GMO

 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. 

Lactose & Gluten Free

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.

Premium Quality

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.
