What is Lactoferrin and Why Does It Matter?
The digestive system plays a vital role in overall health. That's because the healthy bacteria there help support intestinal health and the immune system. So naturally, any food or nutrient that supports the immune system is beneficial.
Lactoferrin is an important protein found in breast milk that helps support digestive health. In fact, high levels of Lactoferrin are found in colostrum, the very early breast milk that provides important immune support for newborns during the first weeks of life. It is also found in mature breast milk. Clinical studies have confirmed this protein's ability to support immune health for infants and toddlers.
Lactoferrin is a component in Enfamil® Enspire™ that's within the range found in mature breast milk. It's added to Enspire to help contribute to digestive and immune health.
Enspire is Enfamil's closest formula ever to breast milk—and Lactoferrin is one reason why this exceptional formula can help support your baby's healthy growth and development. Because feeding your baby isn't simply about satisfying her immediate needs. Every time you feed her is an incremental step toward nourishing her overall development.
