The 'Lactoferrin' Molecule

What is Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is a 75 to 80-kDa metal-binding glycoprotein that is synthesized (produced) inside all mammals, including humans. It is a single-gene product that is essential for life. Lactoferrin concentrations are highest in milk/colostrum, but this molecule is also present in various other exocrine secretions (such as tears, saliva, sweat, cerebro-spinal, bronchial, gastric, seminal and vaginal fluids).   

What is the role of Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is one of the primary nutrients that infants and baby mammals receive through their mother's milk. Over the past several decades, this protein has been heavily researched for its multiple benefits on human health. This includes its role in: 

  1. Promoting a healthy immune response  
  2. Supporting levels of healthy intestinal flora 
  3. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract
  4. Reinforcing the skeletal system
  5. Regulating cellular metabolism 
  6. Supporting reproductive health
  7. Reinforcing physiological development 

Why do we need Lactoferrin?

Lactoferrin is a natural molecule that provides multiple benefits to the human body, particularly the immune and digestive system. Lactoferrin turnover in humans is normally 60 mg per day. This turnover is often affected by factors like poor diet, stressful lifestyle and toxic environment, resulting in an imbalance. By taking a daily dose of pure and bio-functional Lactoferrin, you can ensure that you have provided your body with adequate replenishment of this important molecule. 

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.

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.

Patented Purification Process

The purity of the lactoferrin in each capsule of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is unrivaled. The protein is derived using the Treatment for Contaminant Reduction (TCR) system, which effectively removes microorganisms and endotoxins from milk. TCR has been proven to yield a purer and bio-functional protein. This natural, multi-tiered, food-grade decontamination process is backed by multiple patents and is exclusive to the Naidu Group. 


The Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® formula backed by decades of clinical and scientific research. Each ingredient has been carefully selected, in specific ratios, to provide targeted immune and gastrointestinal support. The powerful formula contains 60 mg of ultra-pure lactoferrin, combined with ideal ratios of inulin, lecithin, turmeric root extract, and Vitamin C for optimal results. 

All Natural, Non-GMO

The emphasis on purity starts with the raw material. 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 green pasture environment. The health status of these animals is inspected regularly and certified by the New Zealand Ministry of Health. 

Lactose-Free & Gluten Free

The Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® formula contains no gluten or lactose. Many commercial lactoferrin products utilize protein which has been extracted from whey (a by-product of cheese) or from a heated process (which can denature the protein). In contrast, the lactoferrin used in Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is sourced from milk collected under aseptic, cold processing conditions. The milk is fractionated, ultra-filtered and the lactose-free lactoferrin is isolated by chromatography. This is followed by freeze-drying to preserve multi-functional biological activity. 

Premium Quality

Lactoferrin Gold 1.8® is manufactured in Europe in a government certified manufacturing facility that meets current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) standards. Only the highest quality ingredients are sourced and third-party tested for purity. All ingredients also undergo meticulous testing at each stage of the production process, resulting in the safest, highest quality product.
