An important protein found naturally in breast milk
Evidence has shown lactoferrin may have useful biological functions for both infants and adults, such as immune-enhancing functions and helping protect against infection.
Our lactoferrin is drawn out from fresh, pasteurised New Zealand milk, using gentle technologies that retain the naturally-occurring health benefits.
Suitable for infants
Potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and infection-fighting properties.
Easy to use
Highly soluble and easy to dry blend.
