The first line of defence for the body's immune
system Pathogens now face a new adversary. It goes by the
innocuous name of lactoferrin.

Lactoferrin is a single-chain glycoprotein, a sub-fraction of whey protein.

Lactoferrin is present in body secretions such as milk, tears, mucus, blood, and saliva and binds easily with iron.
It occurs in much higher levels of concentration in human breast milk than in bovine milk.

Very high concentrations of lactoferrin are found in the colostrum the first milk produced by the mother through
breastfeeding, which has for long been acknowledged as the ideal first food for babies and the perfect
mechanism through which immunity can be transferred from mother to child.

Fortifying the system

The strong affinity for iron is the key to understanding most of lactoferrin's disease-fighting properties.

Since it binds readily with iron, it improves the body's uptake of iron (bioavailability of iron) and so helps prevent
iron deficiency and anemia, which are nutritional disorders affecting around 20 per cent of the world's population.

In binding with iron, it also deprives harmful bacteria of this essential resource and so inhibits their chances of
surviving and multiplying.

Apart from this antibiotic property, the binding with iron reduces the chances of the formation of free-radicals
and so
helps prevent cell damage that is part of the aging process.

Lactoferrin is also believed to suppress tumour growth and may soon find itself an integral part of the treatment
against several types of cancers, most notably pancreatic cancer.

Beneficial bacteria

Studies have also revealed the beneficial effect of lactoferrin on gut health. This protein helps maintain optimum
levels of beneficial bacteria such as bifidus in the intestinal tract and so prevents gastrointestinal inflammations.

Lactoferrin also helps prevent viral infections such as HIV and herpes, and diseases triggered by fungal and
yeast activity.

Lactoferrin does not target specific types of bacteria. This nonspecific nature has proved to be a blessing in
disguise (Many antibiotics are designed to counter specific bacteria. They can become less effective over time
because bacteria are capable of developing strains that are resistant to the antibiotic. This is not
the case with
Lactoferrin,  being non specific to bacteria, it recognizes bacteria and virus no matter where or
what kind and will irradiate them.

Immunoglobulins (IgG)
are proteins that are present in bovine
whey protein ( another name for IgG is ANTIBODY.

One of their functions is as a transporter of antibodies against
harmful microorganisms like viruses, bacteria's and other foreign

IgG has been used to treat diseases such as multiple sclerosis,
rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis A, anemia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
and chickenpox, among others.

IgG are essential elements to maintain a humans immunity from
detrimental microorganisms and toxins.

This substance is transferred from mother to child inside of the womb
via the mothers blood to protect him/her from the introduction of                 
pathogens in the outside world. This way the child is born with a
passive immunity.

IgG work together and separately to battle antigens.
They circulate in the blood and lymphatic systems or they
reside in the mucous membranes to act as a barrier against invaders.
These Immunoglobulins are of a critical
importance because many bacteria's become more resistant to antibiotics every day. These bacteria infect our
food supply and there are more viruses created at a faster rate than the vaccines used to battle them, science is
constantly having to catch up. More and more diseases are being linked to bacterial infection, including peptic
ulcers and heart disease. The claim of a link between bacterial infection and heart disorders have very strong
evidence to support them(1).  
 GSH-Immunity™, with its high amounts of IgG, plays a major role as a supplier of
these key protein fractions.  

How The Body Utilizes IgG, Our body's first line of immune defense to unhealthy organisms, is the intestinal tract

The IgG has been found to resist break down by the digestive enzymes within the digestive tract (due to the
glycoproteins and trypsin inhibitors), therefore the
IgG enters the intestinal wall fully intact where they defend
the lining against invading organisms, and prevent the absorption of foreign proteins.

The IgG is a factor in increasing the immune system activity level. This substance is important in stabilizing and
restoring a damaged intestinal tract so it can function once again at its optimum capacity for nutrient absorption
and utilization.

The antibodies derived from bovine milk have many of the mothers milk IgG characteristics and may be active
against the same diseases in humans.

Immunoglobulins consist of four polypeptide chains with two of the same heavy chains linked by covalent and
non-covalent bridges. The light and heavy chains both have areas with constant amino acids and with a variable
region. This variable region is where the antibody meets the antigen (foreign molecule).
The bovine milk
antigens are resistant to the peptic digestion process, which is good for those of us using an non-denatured
whey protein abundant in IgG proteins(3).

                             Alpha-Lactalbumin and Beta-Lactoglobulin

Bovine serum albumin enhances pregastric lipase's, promoting more efficient newborn digestion, and it also
binds fatty acids in the body. More importantly, it also
contains an appreciable amount of cysteine, which is the
molecular precursor to Glutathione.

is the subunit of lactose synthesis the enzyme which catalyzes the addition of galactose to
glucose to create lactose*. It is possible this may aid in infant digestion of milk. It
also contains cysteine, though
not in as great a ratio as bovine serum albumin, cysteine is the molecular precursor to Glutathione.

is involved with the transfer of passive immunity and the binding of retinol and fatty acids.
This binding allows for the efficient uptake of fats by the cells.

The presence of Beta-lactoglobulin and Alpha-lactalbumin protein in milk is a major cause for allergic reaction in
humans. Subsequently,
those with true milk protein allergies to milk protein should not ingest these milk
proteins and should caution their use in any form.

                                                                    PLEASE NOTE:

Lactose intolerance is not a factor in this allergic response. Typically lactose intolerance presents itself
as diarrhea from the excess consumption of lactose (this can vary from individual to individual). GSH-
Immunity Rx™ contains low levels (0.3g per 5g serving) of lactose and this is well below the tolerance
level for most people.
