VexiLife™ Immune Plus is a proprietary blend of highly purified bovine milk derived apo- and holo- lactoferrin and other whey proteins and peptides (ULTRLAC Plus™). The original formula of ULTRLAC™ has been enhanced in this product by a complex of other whey-derived proteins and peptides with proven immune enhancing properties.
The composition of VexiLife ™ Immune Plus has been established over many years studying the nutritional values of bovine milk-derived components, the final product has been formulated into chewable tablets to increase the absorption of their active ingredients, VexiLife™ Immune Plus is proudly made in USA.
Many studies confirm lactoferrin’s role as a natural immune modulator; it has the ability to coordinate immune system functions. Lactoferrin provides a bridge between innate (body's first line defense responsive to environmental insults such as invading pathogens or trauma) and adaptive immunity. This potent protein supports overall immune function by promoting activity of NK (natural killer) cells and T and B lymphocytes. *
It is scientifically proven that lactoferrin is a potent antioxidant due to its iron binding ability. "Oxidative stress" is caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are continuously generated during physiologic conditions in a presence of free iron. Excess of ROS leads to many degenerative chronic conditions.
Lactoferrin protects against oxidative stress by sequestering iron , thus limiting inflammation and its pathological sequels. *
Lactoferrin has direct antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. The first function discovered and described for lactoferrin was bacteriostatic activity.
Lactoferrin also presents broad antiviral activity, it binds with viral particles, thus preventing entry to host cells, especially in the early phase of infection.
Lactoferrin is also a well known inhibitor of Candida albicans, which is a fungus ubiquitous is oral cavity and digestive tract.*
Oral bacteria form a well-organized and dynamic complex, responsible for two oral conditions-gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is confined to gingival mucosa, and periodontitis involves degeneration of teeth-supporting tissues. Bacteria causing periodontitis may lead to teeth loss and increase the risk of serious health consequences by affecting internal organs such as heart, liver and kidneys.
Lactoferrin has the ability to control: bacterial growth, reactive oxygen species formation and inflammation processes. Along with the regular mechanical biofilm (plaque) removal, lactoferrin is a beneficial component of preventive oral health routine, as well as an aid in combating an active and extensive disease.*
Gastrointestinal tract contributes to immunity and overall well-being.
It provides an important habitat for beneficial bacteria and a barrier that restrains toxins, pathogens and undigested food particles from the translocation into the bloodstream.
According to the scientific studies, lactoferrin supplementation promotes gut lining development and supports mucosal integrity. Moreover lactoferrin supports colonisation of beneficial bacteria - probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria.*
Bone is a dynamic tissue that has mechanical and homeostatic functions. It undergoes a constant restoration process called remodeling, which removes old bone and substitutes it with new bone. Many studies have shown that lactoferrin may stimulate bone growth. Lactoferrin is capable of promoting osteoblasts, the cells that produce bone and, at the same time may inhibit the formation of osteoclasts, which are accountable for bone resorption. In physiological concentration, lactoferrin may shift the balance in positive direction of the proper bone formation. *
