Why KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0®?
Lactoferrin is a protein that occurs naturally in milk and also in the human body.
The name lactoferrin is sometimes misleading.
The name lactoferrin comes from milk “lacto-” plus iron “-ferrin”.
– Lacto-Ferrin is found in many human body fluids and not just in milk: it is found in blood, tears, saliva; nasal cavity and other body fluids.
– Lactoferrin is lactose-free and in its pure form is normally harmless for milk allergy sufferers.
– Lactoferrin binds and transports iron and other minerals.
– Lactoferrin helps transport zinc and copper, among other things, to where they are needed in the body.
It is an immune building block and has highly effective antimicrobial characteristics.
KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® from Nikken helps meet the body’s iron needs:
Iron deficiency is one of the most noticeable symptoms of iron deficiency:
- poor blood circulation and
- numerous other physical complaints.
- Women and very active people are most often affected by iron deficiency.
However, KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® offers an excellent solution to this problem.
Lactoferrin is a protein. Its main biological function is to bind and transport iron.
Iron is an essential mineral that enables the body to transport oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Even if the body is supplied with sufficient iron, iron deficiency can still occur if your body cannot absorb and utilize this iron. You can eat as many green leafy vegetables and lean red meat – both excellent natural sources of iron – but this does not mean that your body can absorb and process this iron.
Often the iron stores are filled and the body still cannot use the iron.
Despite a healthy diet and “proven sufficient” iron in the blood, you can still feel as follows:
- limp and tired
- Susceptible to infection
- sensitive to cold
- lack of concentration
- nocturnal restlessness despite tiredness
KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® helps to overcome this dilemma by supporting the body’s natural transport system and thus helps your body to better utilize iron and balance the iron balance. Studies have shown that lactoferrin, through its natural ability to bind iron, has a positive effect on iron absorption, which in turn increases the level of iron in the blood.
KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® is gentle on the digestive system and therefore supports the digestive tract in all its functions. Rather than adding elemental iron to the body – the type of iron found in almost every supplement on the market – which has been shown to cause inflammatory bowel disease(1) lactoferrin helps the body absorb the iron that is naturally supplied to it without affecting the stomach, and clinical research shows that it is more bioavailable and therefore more efficient than other sources of iron.(2)
KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® contains 200 mg lactoferrin per capsule. It is also lactose, gluten and GMO free and contains four other bio-ingredients with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Organic inulin, organic rose root, organic ginger and organic turmeric
Lactoferrin 2.0™ not only helps the body increase iron absorption, but is also gentle on the digestive system and supports the good bacteria in the digestive tract, which are essential for overall wellbeing. Lactoferrin helps the body absorb what is available without burdening the stomach.
