Since I cannot say much more on this page about lactoferrin without getting into what might be taken as medical claims, here is Nikken’s description of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8
Lactoferrin is a natural material that forms the basis for living things, and is vital for health. Although it is normally supplied in our diet through dairy products, many of us don’t receive the daily lactoferrin that is present in these high-fat, lactose-containing foods.
Lactoferrin Gold 1.8 helps the body absorb the nutrients it needs. A natural prebiotic, it supports the growth of beneficial bacteria. Produced via specialized, precision techniques, Lactoferrin Gold 1.8 is the only premium, ultra-pure form of lactoferrin — to offer an ideal serving, every day.*
