Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein of the transferrin family characterized by two lobes similar to each other, each with a site capable of reversibly binding a ferric ion. This gives it a high iron complexing capacity. All this means that lactoferrin administered orally increases not only the blood concentration of hemoglobin, but also the serum concentration of red blood cells. For its strong antibacterial action, inhibition of pathogenic microorganisms, anti-inflammatory action, lactoferrin is considered a good therapeutic method for acne.Main activities: high ability to bind iron in a reversible way (300 times higher than other transferrin).
