Why KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0®?

Lactofferin Blog Final

Lactoferrin is a naturally occurring protein that is found in milk and the human body. It is a potent anti-microbial and modulator of the immune system. Lactoferrin helps kill bacteria, and helps protect from infections and inflammation. Therefore, natural lactoferrin levels in our bodies rise during times of infections and inflammation.

Nikken’s KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® helps address the body’s need for iron: iron deficiency can result in anemia, fatigue and poor circulation, as well as many other physical discomforts. Women are most vulnerable to iron deficiency and depletion, along with people who are very active. KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® is a great solution.

Lactoferrin is a protein.  Its main biological function is to help bind and transport iron, an essential mineral that helps hemoglobin carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. No matter how much iron is in your body, if it can’t be retained and utilized, you could end up deficient. You may eat lots of green, leafy vegetables, and / or lean red meat, which are natural sources of iron but it does not mean your body can absorb or process it.

KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® helps address this dilemma by supporting the body’s natural delivery system, helping the body to better utilize and balance the iron.* Studies have shown that because lactoferrin is naturally iron binding, it has a positive effect on iron absorption, which in turn increases blood iron levels.

KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0® is also gentle on the digestive system, therefore supporting the gastrointestinal tract and all its functions. Rather than adding elemental iron – the kind you find in virtually every iron supplement on the market – which has been shown to cause intestinal inflammation1, lactoferrin helps the body absorb what is already there without upsetting the stomach. It has been shown in clinical research to be more bioavailable, allowing for more efficient absorption of iron, compared to other iron sources.2

With KENZEN Lactoferrin 2.0®, you receive 200 mg of lactoferrin per capsule. It is also lactose-free and gluten-free with non-GMO lactoferrin and supported with four more organic anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Healthy gut – Healthy you…

Nutrition Cropped

Hippocrates once said: “All disease begins in the gut”. The health of our digestive system (or gut) is vital to our overall wellbeing. Largely responsible for the critical functions of the body’s digestive and immune systems, is the microbiome found in the digestive system and which can affect the body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulations, digestion, vitamin production, immune response and the ability to eliminate toxins as well as the overall mental health.

The microbiome is defined as the collective genomes of the microbes, composed of bacteria, bacteriophage, fungi, protozoa and viruses that live inside and on the human body. The microbiome lives in the gut and in any openings of the human body. 80% of the immune system is the microbiome.

An unbalanced gut microbiome leads to many symptoms, which are common these days and include: acid reflux, bloating and irregular bowl movements to name a few.

Here are some things you can do to help support the natural microbiome process that keeps your gut healthy:

  • Consume more polyphenols1 rich foods. Polyphenols are micronutrients that we obtain through certain plant-based foods. They’re packed with antioxidants and potential health benefits.
  • Enjoy more foods naturally high in probiotics and in the fibre-rich prebiotics that help those good bugs thrive.
  • Include more nutritional proteins and minerals in your diet to help maintain beneficial bacteria. Rich in the protein Lactoferrin and containing four organic plant ingredients, Nikken’s Kenzen® Lactoferrin 2.0™ can help with the natural absorption of iron and is gentle on the digestive system, supporting the good gut bacteria that is so crucial for overall wellbeing.
  • Add more enzymes to your diet. The more effectively your stomach is able to work at properly breaking down foods before they enter the rest of the digestive tract, the better. Nikken’s Kenzen® Digestion Complex 4-20 is a balanced combination of twenty natural enzymes, which may help support normal digestion and nutrient absorption. Another great supplement that works in synergy with this supplement is the Nikken Kenzen® Cleansedx, formulated with a blend of 100% organic ingredients, including Milk Thistle, all of which may contribute to the support or maintenance of normal liver function and digestion.

Take care of your gut to support better bathroom habits, a healthier immune response — and even a better, brighter mood.
