Bio-Actives

 

Vitaerx Pharmaceutical, Inc’s mission  is to provide a healthy solution to millions of metabolically imbalanced people. Our key strength is through promoting natural nutrients, as present in milk, to maintain  physiological homeostasis and healthy management of active living and  aging. 

The Dairy Essence of Life” and ”Immunomodulation by Nutrition” are the slogans which summarize the Company’s believes and dedication to utilize the best of nature in prevention or treatment of metabolic disorders.

Lactoferrin and Proline Rich Polypeptides are the primary bio-active components of VexiLife™.

Lactoferrin (LF) is an iron-binding glycoprotein, found in all exocrine secretions of mammals, including: saliva, breast milk, tears, nasal exudates, bronchial mucus, seminal fluid and gastrointestinal fluids.

LF is considered an important mediator in host defense against pathogenic organism. There is high similarity between bovine and human lactoferrin. Many researches indicate that exogenous LF, in particular bovine milk-derived LF, is a useful mediator of immune responses in slowing down the progression or preventing development of many debilitating conditions in humans.  It has been confirmed, that bovine milk-derived lactoferrin is safe and effective for treatment in humans.


Considerable amount of LF is present in breast milk, especially in colostrum – a form of milk produced immediately prior to birth (first milk). Because of its high concentration in colostrum, LF has been studied extensively in host defense responses in infants. Indeed, breast milk LF provides protection against pathogens during newborn adaptation to non-uterine life.

Proline Rich Polypeptide (PRP)

PRP is a complex of colostrum-derived small molecular weight peptides with high content of proline. The unique chemical characteristics of proline make these peptides responsible for a variety of biological effects. PRPs have been reported to possess activities ranging from antimicrobial action to prevention of neurodegenerative disorders in humans. PRP utilized in Vexilife Memory is derived from bovine colostrum.

 

Is the bovine milk-derived lactoferrin safe?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that bovine lactoferrin (milk-derived lactoferrin) is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use as ingredient in food. Recently bovine milk-derived lactoferrin has been approved for use as an ingredient in Mead Johnson infant formula (Enspire).

When to take VexiLife™?

 It is well documented that active ingredients of VexiLife™, in particular lactoferrin and Proline Rich Polypeptides, could prevent or control insult-induced metabolic imbalance caused by a variety of environmental stimuli. As such it is recommended to take VexiLife™ prophylactically while traveling, being fatigued or exhausted from over work/exercise, during the winter/spring fever and during various allergy seasons*.
