Lactoferrin Cancer Miracle –
Super Immune Booster taken from the HSI Report
Lethal Cancer Conquered with Natural Cure––
The Lactoferrin Miracle:
Ralph Snyder had the worse case of leukaemia the Mayo Clinic had seen in 20 years. His entire immune system had shut down. His left leg turned black! He was desperate for a Cure…and did whatever his doctors told him to do, including undergoing chemotherapy. Nothing worked. Ralph’s blood counts remained critical.
Ralph Snyder needed a miracle––and he found one. His blood counts improved. He gained back every pound his sickness had cost him. His recovery was so unexpected that his oncologist, working out of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, dubbed him the “Miracle Man.”
That was five years ago. And Ralph is still cancer free.
And the Secret Is…
The natural food that saved Ralph Snyder’s life is lactoferrin. It’s a compound found in the breast milk that mothers feed newborn babies, and it provides powerful immune chemicals.
Here’s the catch:
You can only get it from Mother Nature. Makers of synthetic formula have tried—and failed—for years to copy the disease-fighting properties of breast milk.
Lactoferrin was one of the first natural cancer therapies ever reported by Health Sciences Institute (HSI), years ahead of other alternative health experts. And now we’re on the verge of a major medical breakthrough with this miraculous compound. In fact, because of this unique extract, much of what we now consider state-of-the-art medicine—such as radiation, antibiotics, and chemotherapy—may eventually seem as primitive as blood-letting.
How Lactoferrin Works
From the moment you were born, lactoferrin—an iron-binding protein found in breast milk—was your first shield against infection and disease and your primary source of immune-system chemicals. Studies have shown that the mother’s first milk is the only source from which an infant can get these significant immune substances. Synthetic formulas can’t offer the same nutritional, immunological, or physiological value, despite efforts to produce formulas that mimic breast milk as closely as possible.
That’s because lactoferrin has two specific unique immune- boosting functions:
- It binds to iron in your blood, keeping it away from cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens that need iron to grow.
- It activates very specific strands of DNA that turn on the genes that launch your immune response, a rare and surprising action that places lactoferrin in a class by itself.
State-of-the-art techniques in cellular and molecular biology have recently allowed us to isolate lactoferrin from the “first food of life.” The commercially available preparation is in a form in which the food hasn’t been chemically altered.
Proven Effectiveness Numerous studies on rats and patient case histories have documented the benefits of lactoferrin in helping to combat many types of malignancies.
Leukemia patient Ralph Snyder (remember him––the worst case the Mayo Clinic had seen in 20 years!) had his condition reversed on lactoferrin. His white blood cell count rose, and his problems disappeared.
This seemingly “hopeless” case was transformed into a remarkable recovery.
Other case histories indicate that the negative effects of conventional treatments like chemotherapy and radiation are drastically reduced or eliminated with supplemental lactoferrin. (The amounts of lactoferrin used in these reported cases range from 500 to 1500 mg a day.) And keep in mind that lactoferrin appears to be perfectly safe, even in high doses.
What Else Can You Use It For?
Other clinical and case studies have shown that lactoferrin contains an anti-inflammatory molecule— which means it can help if you suffer from the pain and debilitation of joint inflammation plays a role in lessening ocular disturbance, which means it may help with vision problems acts as a potent antimicrobial agent against Candida albicans shows potent antiviral activity useful in reducing your susceptibility to viruses, including herpes and HIV.
Lactoferrin can also be taken as a daily preventive. With all of the everyday threats that wear down the immune system—such as environmental toxins, emotional and physical stress, and genetic problems––most people can use an immune boost. Taking 100 mg of lactoferrin each day at bedtime can help upgrade your immune system, letting you take full advantage of your natural defenses in a world full of potential health threats.
For use in cancer recovery, up to 1500 mg a day can be taken without fear of side effects. And unlike penicillin or other synthetic drugs, your body will not become immune to the effects of lactoferrin, because it’s something your body is familiar with and knows how to handle. And if you’re wondering how safe lactoferrin is, remember that it is non-toxic and is well tolerated by nursing infants.
Where You Can Get Lactoferrin
Since lactoferrin is a natural substance, large pharmaceutical companies aren’t able to patent it and make millions of dollars, so they aren’t willing to produce it. But it is available from a limited number of suppliers in the United States, and it shouldn’t be overlooked as a powerful tool in the fight against serious diseases.
Lactoferrin can be purchased under the product name of Coloferrin(tm) , manufactured

Received 27 March 2008; revised 16 May 2008; accepted 16 May 2008
Abstract Dietary supplements of bovine lactoferrin are purported in consumer literature to enhance and support the immune system response through their antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral
properties. Our aim was to investigate more fully the potential immune modulating properties and
antioxidant activity of an oral supplementation of bovine lactoferrin in humans.
Using an intra-individual repeated measure design, 8 healthy males aged 30 to 55 years, self-administered daily for 21 days, one capsule of placebo for 7 days, followed by 100 mg of lactoferrin for 7 days, followed by 200 mg of lactoferrin for 7 days. Peripheral blood lymphocyte subset counts, T-cell activation, natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity, serum cytokine levels (tumor necrosis factor [TNF]-α, interferon [IFN]-γ, interleukin [IL]-2, IL-4, IL-6, and IL-10), and serum hydrophilic, lipophilic, and total antioxidant capacity were repeatedly measured before and after each progressive supplementation.
Statistically significant increases were found between presupplementation levels and levels after 200 mg of supplementation in total T-cell activation (as measure by CD3 +) (P b.001), helper T-cell activation (as measure by CD4 +) (P b .001), cytotoxic T-cell activation (as measured by CD8 +) (P b .001), and hydrophilic antioxidant capacity (P b .05).
No significant changes were seen in the other parameters measured. These results support the proposal that oral supplements of bovine lactoferrin may be a useful adjunct toward modulation of immune activity, in particular T-cell activation and antioxidant status.

Lactoferrin is a protein found in many body fluids including colostrum, milk , tears, nasal secretions, saliva, vaginal secretions, and seminal fluid . These fluids interface with the body’s external environment and play an important role in the body’s innate immune system; they are
the first-line of host defense.
In addition, lactoferrin is produced in high levels in neutrophils . A number of physiologic bioactive functions have been ascribed to lactoferrin including antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral , antiparasitic , antitumor activity , immunomodulatory effects [3,7], and regulation of iron absorption during infection . It is the ability to sequester free ferric ions that gives lactoferrin its potential antioxidant properties . Numerous in vitro studies demonstrate lactoferrin’s activation and support of the immune process.
In vivo studies on mice reinforce bovine lactoferrin’s immune-modulating effects against a number of diseases involving bacterial and fungal infections, including Escherichia coli , Helicobacter pylori , Candida albicans , and in inflammation  and cancer .
In addition, a small number of clinical trials have supported bovine lactoferrin as an immune modulator through the demonstration of increased phagocytic activity of polymorphonuclear
leukocytes , decreased production of interleukin (IL)-6 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α in cell cultures  and supporting eradication of Helicobacter pylori , Trichophyton rubrum , and treatment of hepatitis C .
On this evidence, bovine lactoferrin supplements are reported to have the ability to support the immune system and influence immune cell activity potentially via these antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties.
The aim of this study was, therefore, to investigate changes in immune and antioxidant status, in particular lymphocyte subset counts, natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity, T-cell activation, serum cytokines IL-2, TNF-α, interferon (IFN)-γ, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, and both hydrophilic and lipophilic antioxidant status.
The hypothesis of this study is that either or both, 100 mg and 200 mg of bovine lactoferrin supplements will enhance immune and antioxidant status in human males.
2. Methods and materials
2.1. Study participants
Eight healthy male volunteers, mean age of 40 years (range, 31-52 years), were recruited from Southern Cross University (SCU, Lismore, NSW, Australia). Participants were healthy nonsmokers and ceased all medications including vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements for 14 days before and during the study period.
The study excluded those participants with immune or autoimmune disorders, diabetes, or those on any medication. Potential participants then underwent a clinical health assessment that included medical history collection, blood pressure, heart rate, and body mass index (BMI) measurements, and blood safety parameter determination; full blood count, liver function test, urea electrolytes and creatinine levels, and C-reactive protein.
All procedures and processes were approved by the SCU Human Research Ethics Committee and the University of Queensland Medical Research Ethics Committee (Brisbane, QLD, Australia). Participants were fully informed, and written consent was obtained from each subject.
2.2. Study design
The trial design was an intraindividual, repeated measure, dose-response study. It involved one group of 8 participants who all simultaneously underwent 3 successive treatments— placebo, 100 mg of lactoferrin, and 200 mg of lactoferrin—for a period of 21 days. All participants commenced with 1 capsule daily of a placebo for 7 days (days 0-6), followed by 1 capsule daily of 100 mg of lactoferrin for 7 days (days 7-13), followed by 1 capsule daily of 200 mg of lactoferrin
for 7 days (days 14-20).
Measurement of immune and antioxidant parameters were performed at each visit (ie, on days 0, 7, 9, 14, 16, and 21).
2.3. Study intervention
The dosage of both placebo and lactoferrin was 1 capsule per day, self-administered with breakfast each morning. Placebo capsules contained 200 mg of calcium phosphate; 100 mg lactoferrin capsules contained 100 mg of bovine lactoferrin and 100 mg of calcium phosphate; and 200 mg lactoferrin capsules contained 200 mg bovine lactoferrin.
2.4. Study outcomes
Primary outcome measures included in vivo changes in lymphocyte subset counts including total (CD3 +) T cells, helper (CD4 +) T cells, cytotoxic (CD8 +) T cells, total NK cells (CD3 −, CD16 +, and/or CD56 +), and total B cells (CD19 +); and ex vivo changes in nonspecific immune parameters including NK cell cytotoxicity. Secondary outcome measures included ex vivo changes in specific immune parameters including T-cell activation; in vivo changes in cytokine IL-2, TNF-α, and IFN-γ levels that predominantly regulate a cell-mediated immune response and IL-4, IL-6, and IL-10 levels that predominantly regulate antibodymediated responses; and in vivo changes in hydrophilic and lipophilic antioxidant status.
2.5. Blood collection
Blood collection for both blood safety parameters, full blood count, liver function test, urea electrolyte and creatinine levels, and C-reactive protein and blood study outcome parameters were performed on days 0, 7, 9, 14, 16, and 21 after a 12-hour overnight fast. Samples for safety parameters were analyzed according to standard diagnostic laboratory procedures at the Northern Rivers Pathology Service, Lismore Base Hospital, Lismore, NSW, Australia.
Samples for study outcome parameters were analyzed at the Center for Phytochemistry and Pharmacology, SCU, Lismore, NSW, Australia.
2.6. Immune parameter measurements
2.6.1. Lymphocyte subsets
Five milliliters of blood was collected in an EDTA tube, stored at room temperature (RT), and analyzed within 24 hours of collection. Flow cytometric analysis was used for monitoring the expression of CD3 +, CD4+, CD8 +, CD19+, CD16+, and CD56+ antigens on peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL).
