Lactoferrin, iron and cancer

Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein— a protein with a glucose molecule attached. Its name combines the Latin words “lacto”, which means “milk”, and “ferrin” which means “iron”.

Lactoferrin is highly concentrated in milk/ The lactorferrin provides powerful immune protection to the newborn. The key to lactoferrin’s cancer-fighting properties is its ability to bind with iron. It forms a bond with iron that’s 100 times stronger than transferrin—your body’s major iron transport protein.

It is known that cancer cells love iron. They need iron to reproduce. By starving cancer cells of iron, lactoferrin helps to stop them in their tracks.
