    Has anyone come across a product called lactoferrin?

    I have been reading a book by an Aussie called Ron Gellatley who practices as a Naturapath, Clinical Nutritionist, Medical Herbalist and a Homeopath. The book deals with internal health of which there is a chapter on Candida. In this chapter he reveals a lot of information like diet which I have picked up through other sources but he mentions a product called lactoferrin which in his words is a super supplement to aid the immune system, he goes on to say that should finance be an issue then lactoferrin is the one product that should be bought before any others.

    I would suspect that probiotics are of ultimate importance as well but has anyone tried this lactoferrin, what do you think?

    Lactoferrin is an excellent product. I have a lot of medical abstracts about its synergistic effects with antifungals, its antifungal properties, and immune booster effects. The effective is APO-Lactoferrin.

    Hello, James.

    One of the factors that lactoferrin is known for is, when iron deficiency anemia is present the lactoferrin will increase the iron absorption, so this should be noted when taking the supplement if additional iron is not needed.

    The functions which would be beneficial to a Candida infestation are, first its ability to increase the population of beneficial flora in one’s system. This is how lactoferrin aids the immune system since the flora is an important part of the immune system.

    The other benefit is stimulating the Th1 immune response thereby controlling or destroying certain Candida species and harmful bacteria in the intestines.

    The same benefits can be obtained with substances like cultured foods or vegetable fibers without the risk of increasing the iron amount in the body if extra iron is not needed.

    This is correct, but I need to point out something important.
    Lactoferrin is a supplement I have studied a lot because its potential benefits during an anti-candida treatment. I have done the same with Transfer Factor.
    Anyway, candida sufferers shouldn’t take Lactoferrin (the common form) but APOLactoferrin. Apolactoferrin is the iron depleted lactoferrin. Iron increase candida like crazy, and if you don’t need it, you shouldn’t take it in any form. The synergistic action with antifungals in medical studies has been found with APOLactoferrin. The Jarrow Formula Lactoferrin is APOLactoferrin in spite it doesn’t say it. I have emailed Jarrow in the past with this question. It is cheaper than this in this link.
