Lactoferrin is a natural glycoprotein established as a member of the transferrin family protein. The biological activities of lactoferrin stem from ability to specifically bind the (Fe3)+ and (CO3)2- ions. Additionally this protein has an ability to bind to a wide variety of cells.
Lactoferrin is a very important component of colostrum- mammalian early milk. However, it is also a part of mature milk and many body secretions, such as tears, saliva, crevicular fluid, gastric juices, sperm and vaginal secretions. The research has shown that bovine lactoferrin is safe and even more beneficial for other species- humans. This glycoprotein exhibits a wide variety of functions, that all lead to maintaining overall homeostasis in the body. Many scientific studies have confirmed that lactoferrin is non-toxic, even in large doses. Neither in-vivo, nor in- vitro tests have shown toxicity of lactoferrin. According to the current knowledge, bovine lactoferrin is not credited for any allergies or food intolerances. Moreover, bovine lactoferrin has been acknowledged by FDA as a product generally recognized as safe (GRAS). It is also an additive to the newborn formulas.
Lactoferrin is a multifunctional protein. It targets many natural processes binding iron, reducing the level of reactive oxygen species and subsequently down-regulating the inflammatory responses.
It is well documented that active ingredients of VexiLife™, in particular lactoferrin and other whey proteins, 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*.
Prevention is important, because it reduces the risk of serious illness, chronic conditions, pain, suffering and expenses. It also gives opportunity for healthier, happier and longer life. VexiLife product based on lactoferrin offers a complex and advanced support for immunity and overall well-being. Laboratory tested and scientifically established doses of our product are appropriate for preventative and long term use. However, the most important thing about prevention is systematicity.
Our bodies are constantly affected by bacteria, viruses and parasites. While we work for hours, travel or actively spend time, we may become over-exerted and more vulnerable to infections or serious diseases. VexiLife product is designed to help your body maintain homeostasis and immune balance. Proper functioning of intestinal mucosa and beneficial gut microflora are among the key factors of healthy and efficient immune system.
