Immunecare Lactoferrin (Apo Lactoferrin) 90 capsules

(8 customer reviews)

£89.95 £69.95

Take Immunecare Apo Lactoferrin. Here are 8 compelling reasons why –

  • Lactoferrin activates and proliferates dendritic cells in the respiratory tract.

These cells are immune defence cells. Their main function is to process antigen material and present it on the cell surface to the T cells of the immune system. They act as messengers between the innate and the adaptive immune systems. This is usually the first point of contact with a respiratory virus, so this is where the battle starts. If these cells activate quickly and in enough numbers, then infection can be dealt with quickly.

  • Lactoferrin decreases the ‘cytokine storm’ that increases the chance of mortality with Covid-19.

Diseases such as Covid-19 and influenza can be fatal due to an overreaction of the body’s immune system called a cytokine storm. Cytokines are small proteins released by many different cells in the body, including those of the immune system where they coordinate the body’s response against infection and trigger inflammation. Down regulating this storm is vital to avoid a greater risk of complications.

  • Lactoferrin proliferates T cells.

T cells (also called T lymphocytes) are one of the major components of the adaptive immune system. Their roles include directly killing host cells infected by viruses, activating other immune cells, producing cytokines and regulating the immune response. The virus destroying cells are especially important in a viral infection. Lactoferrin also improves the T cells’ memory of the pathogen, so that the immune system can be more quickly activated in the future.

  • Lactoferrin inhibits viral entry into human cells.

Because viruses are not living, they can only replicate within host cells. Denying them entry into those cells is an absolute limiting factor on the infection. No viral entry, no replication, no infection.

If the virus does enter the cell, Lactoferrin acts on the virus by way of the interferon cytokine which can kill the virus in the cell.

  • Lactoferrin boosts both innate and adaptive immunity.

The first line of defence against non-self pathogens is the innate immune response. The innate immune response consists of physical, chemical and cellular defenses against pathogens. The main purpose of the innate immune response is to immediately prevent the spread and movement of foreign pathogens throughout the body.

The second line of defense against non-self pathogens is called adaptive immune response. Adaptive immunity is also referred to as acquired immunity or specific immunity. The adaptive immune response is specific to the pathogen presented. You can find out more about Lactoferrin and immunity here.

  • Lactoferrin is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women to take, at the recommended dose of one capsule per day.
  • Lactoferrin is safe for children to take at the recommended dose of one capsule per day.
  • Lactoferrin is safe for the elderly to take at the recommended dose of one capsule per day.

It is no coincidence that the immune systems of our more senior citizens are much less effective than our younger citizens, and that they are much more prone to infections. T cell production, one of the mainstays of the immune function, becomes impaired with advancing years. It has been noted by doctors in America, however, that reversal of this atrophy can take place with both  Colostrum and Lactoferrin supplementation. Clearly this is very important in these days of Covid-19.

2. Supercharge your immune system with loads of Immune Factors.

Immunecare Colostrum is probably the best all round immune boosting supplement you can get, with 37 immune factors, growth factors, peptides, vitamins and minerals that your body uses to fight infections. It is especially beneficial for the elderly, as it helps their immune systems to become more effective and efficient, in effect ‘younger’.

Lactoferrin is a single defensive immune protein, which is 100% pure and natural. Lactoferrin is already part of your body’s immune defence system, and it is found in the mucosal linings of the body, such as the gut, airways, mouth, and in tears to keep the eyes healthy and protected from pathogens.

This is especially important as these are the targets for viruses to spread.

Far from being a new thing, Lactoferrin has been astounding medical and scientific researchers since 1975, and there are over 2000 peer reviewed, published scientific papers on this remarkable supplement.

You don’t have to take our word for it; these scientific reviews say it all:

Scientific paper Abstract

The antiviral effect of Lactoferrin lies in the early phase of infection. Lactoferrin prevents entry of virus in the host cell, either by blocking cellular receptors, or by direct binding to the virus particles.

It is therefore ideal to take as a protective agent to minimise the risks of viral infection.

Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein present in large quantities in colostrum and in breast milk, in external secretions and in polymorphonuclear leukocytes. Lactoferrin’s main function is non-immune protection. Among several protective activities shown by lactoferrin, those that are antiviral displayed by orally administered lactoferrin are:

(i) antimicrobial activity, which has been presumed due to iron deprivation, but more recently attributed also to a specific interaction with the bacterial cell wall and extended to viruses and parasites;

(ii) immunomodulatory activity, with a direct effect on the immune system, together with a specific antinflammatory effects;

(iii) a more recently discovered anticancer activity. It is worth noting that most of the protective activities of lactoferrin have been found, sometimes to a greater extent, also in peptides derived from limited proteolysis of lactoferrin that could be generated after lactoferrin ingestion.

Lactoferrin could therefore be considered an ideal nutraceutic product because of its relatively cheap production from bovine milk and of its widely recognized tolerance after ingestion, along with its well demonstrated protective activities. The most important protective activities shown by orally administered bovine lactoferrin are reviewed in this article.

Scientific paper Abstract

Milk contains an array of proteins with useful bioactivities. Many milk proteins encompassing native or chemically modified casein, lactoferrin, alpha-lactalbumin, and beta-lactoglobulin demonstrated antiviral activities.

  • Several mammalian lactoferrins prevented hepatitis C infection.
  • Lactoferrin, inhibited human cytomegalovirus.
  • Lactoferrin and lactoferricin, inhibited HSV.
  • Lactoferrin displayed anti-avian influenza A activity.
  • Lactoferrin inhibited respiratory syncytial virus, hepatitis B virus, adenovirus, poliovirus, hantavirus, sindbis virus, semliki forest virus, echovirus, and enterovirus.
  • Lactoferrin, demonstrated antihuman rotavirus activity.

    Thank you for helping me… to enjoy an improved quality of life

  2. Roz Kadir RN Dip ION MSc

    I have been using Immunecare Lactoferrin supplement for the last two years both personally and for my clients. Its excellent immune supporting effect has helped prevent the upper respiratory tract infections that blight so many. We have found that Immuncare really does help keep us protected throughout the year, and particularly through periods of stress either in sport or the workplace.
