Jarrow Formulas IronSorb+Lactoferrin combines Iron-Protein Succinylate (IPS) with Lactoferrin.
This combination of IronSorb and lactoferrine makes sure the iron is being absorbed far better than usual.
IPS is an iron complex that reduces irritation to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in comparison to other forms of iron.
Lactoferrin is an important immune supporting glycoprotein that is found in breast milk, tears and saliva.
One of the biological activities of lactoferrin comes from its powerful ability to bind iron (300 times that of serum transferrin), which promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Lactoferrin is a whey protein derived from milk. It is present in human breast milk, and is one of the important molecules that help newborns develop their immunity. Lactoferrin is a multitasking protein with several biological roles. Lactoferrin has been found to have antiviral, antineoplastic, antibacterial, antifungal, immunomodulating and anti-inflammatory activity. Lactoferrin has been clinically studied in neonatal units to prevent bacterial and viral infections during hospitalization. It is such a potent immunomodulator that it has been well-studied in cancer patients to help battle cancer and enhance patients’ immunity. Bovine lactoferrin is absorbable by humans and has the same mechanism of action.
Lactoferrin is freeze-dried and processed at low temperatures to preserve potency and activity.
• freeze-dried lactoferrin capsules
• low temperature processing helps preserve activity
• 200mg lactoferrin per capsule
• important immune modulator found in tears, saliva & breast milk
• 18mg elemental iron per capsule
• synergistic combination for improved iron absorption

Timing of supplementsWe frequently receive the question whether it really matters when to use a particular supplement.
Most supplements come with instructions to ingest them with a meal. This is in the assumption that meal contain fat, as fat will aid with absorption through the gut wall. Whether or not this can be your first meal of the day, depends on how much fat it contains. Especially fat-soluble vitamins, such as A,D, E and K need fat for proper absorption.
A work-around is to ingest them together with a larger amount of fish or krill oil softgels if your first meal doesn't contain enough fat.
Another reason take supplements with a meal, is that taking it by itself, can cause nausea or discomfort.
Smile, don't kiss!
Despite the name, a cold is not what causes cold sores, but a virus infection, called herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is to blame. Cold sores usually are transmitted via well-meaning kisses and most already pick it up as a kid.
When someone gets infected with HSV-1, the virus makes its way through the skin and into a group of nerve cells (ganglion). The virus moves in here, takes a long snooze, and every now and then decides to wake up and cause a cold sore. Between outbreaks, HSV-1 hides inside nerve cells, so it's never completely cured.
Feeling exhausted? Perhaps you suffer from anemia!
You probably experienced restlessness coming out of the long winter period and were rearing to go out and about on your road bike or run on your favourite trail. However now you have taken up your favourite outdoor sports again, your energy levels aren't quite what they used to be. It is taking you longer and more hours of sleep to recuperate from a ride or run.
Take 1 capsule per day with food, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
