Caution: Lactoferrin may act as an immune stimulant. Research indicates elevated levels of lactoferrin are present in conditions of lymphocytic leukemia and pancreatitis, suggesting a potential, but undetermined contraindication. Individuals with autoimmune or allergic conditions should start with small doses and consult their healthcare practitioner.
Do not use during pregnancy. The body's normal production of lactoferrin is drastically reduced during pregnancy, potentially indicating a lack of need during that time.
