Our bodies absorb iron by means of transferring proteins, such as Lactoferrin. Lactoferrin is a Transferrin which, just as the name implies, Transfers-Iron from outside cells to the inside. Lactoferrin is one of few proteins that can bypass stomach degradation, survive digestion, this is why Lactoferrin is in an abundance in breast milk, so baby’s and infants can absorb Iron.
VIRUN filed patents starting in the early 2000s utilizing a natural mechanism that binds proteins, probiotics fats, water-insoluble nutrients, and vitamins to Lactoferrin in order to improve the overall stability and absorption. Since then, VIRUN has filed significant IP combining Lactoferrin to proteins, probiotics, fats, water-insoluble nutrients, and vitamins.
