Jarrow Immune PF is a dietary supplement, which contains a unique set of substances supporting the functioning of the immune system. In the composition of the preparation there is high quality bovine colostrum standardized for min 35% immunoglobulins, lactoferrin and patented formula Immuno-LP20™, containing probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus plantarum.
Colostrum, is the first food that a new-born baby receives. It is a natural product of mammary glands of mammals, which is produced in the last period of pregnancy and continues to be produced until several dozen hours after childbirth, after which it gradually is transformed to milk. Contrary to milk, colostrum has yellow color and slightly acidic reaction and is thicker.
The most important feature that differentiates colostrum from milk is the composition. Colostrum is a concentrated source of all essential nutrients in highly assimilable form as well as growth factors and immunologically active substances (40 times more bioactive compounds than in mature milk). It is essential for the proper protection of a new-born baby from pathogens, while it still does not have its own mature immune system.
Colostrum of bovine origin has found its application in the prophylaxis and treatment of both infants and adults, i.a. in case of infections, disorders of the immune system, various diarrheas, allergies and autoimmune diseases.
Lactoferrin, due to a range of various kinds of activity that it demonstrates, it is called a multi-potential protein. Lactoferrin naturally occurs in body fluids and mucous secretions, i.a. in colostrum, milk, tears and also in neutrophils. This substance has proven anti-inflammatory, bacteriostatic, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effect. Lactoferrin present in mother’s milk plays a key protective function the first days of life.
Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein, belonging to the group of transferrins. This protein demonstrates very strong affinity to Fe3+ions, thanks to which it exhibits natural chelating effect and protects from the toxic effect of iron in the free state.
It is believed that the largest role of lactoferrin in the organism is imunostimulation. This substance takes part in regulating immune response of the organism thanks to a few mechanisms. The first one is related to the above mentioned affinity to iron. Another is related to strongly positive load of N-final fragment of lactoferrin, thanks to which it is possible to react with cell walls of bacteria and damage them, which leads to death of bacteria. The last mechanism is attributed to peptides, created as a result of enzymatic breakdown of lactoferrin, which most probably are even more active that lactoferrin itself.
Lactobacillus plantarum is a strain of probiotic bacteria exhibiting the ability to colonize human intestinal mucosa thanks to a protein conducive to adhesion – adhesine. L. plantarum decrease the ability of pathogenic bacteria to attack intestinal mucosa (especially Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Proteus, Salmonella and Shigella or Escherichia coli) and reduce the influence of toxins and other pro-inflammatory substances on epithelial cells.
L. plantarum are used both in the prophylaxis and treatment of bacterial diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, especially among immunosuppressive patients, using antibiotic therapy and drip-fed.
L. plantarum positively influence all symptoms of the digestive system. Especially positive influence of L. plantarum was observed among people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). These bacteria also influence regulation of gut-brain axis, thanks to which they support the functioning of the central nervous system and may be helpful in case of depression, neurosis and anxiety disorders.
To sum up, Jarrow Immune is a dietary supplement which is conducive to proper immune reaction of the organism. The preparation is recommended especially in case of decreased immunity (fall-winter season), exposure to long-lasting and frequent stress, physical overburden and the need to strengthen the organism, e.g. before an important event in life.
In order to maximize the effect of the preparation, you may also additionally apply a multi-strain probiotic preparations or, for example, butyric acid, which will increase integrity of intestinal barrier and decrease the risk of permeation of toxins to the bloodstream. In case of general drop in immunity, it is also worth enriching supplementation in vitamin C, certainly in combination with a proper and balanced diet.

Xylitol, tapioca starch, natural pineapple flavor, dextrin, silicon dioxide and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).
Lactoferrin - a protein classified to the group of transferrins, naturally occurring in glandular secretions, such as saliva or milk. Its especially high concentration is noted in colostrum and mother’s milk. It takes part in shaping non-specific immunity. It demonstrates a wide scope of immune functions, has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-parasitic and anti-inflammatory properties.
The properties of lactoferrin are noticed not only in relation to body fluids, but also in case of its supplementation. Therefore, supplements with lactoferrin are used in order to improve immune functions of the organism. This protein is especially effective in the fight with viral infections.
Moreover, lactoferrin demonstrates the ability to chelate iron ions, which also demonstrates positive influence on the immune functions. It also stimulates phagocytosis and has immunotropic effect.
What is Lactobacillus plantarum?
Lactobacillus plantarum is a strain of gram-positive, motionless, rod-shaped bacteria which ferment milk in the intestinal environment. These probotic strains are believed to be the most resistant to adverse conditions prevailing in different sections of the digestive tract. Apart from the small intestine, they were detected in the oral cavity and even vagina where they compete with pathogenic microorganisms, protecting the body from bacterial infections, viruses and mycoses.
They affect the vitality of pathogens and synthesis of compounds beneficial to the health of, e.g. lactic acid and short-chain fatty acids. As a result, it normalises intestinal function, thereby ensuring proper digestion and nutrient absorption. By using the lactase enzyme, it has the ability to break down milk sugar which is the cause of many unpleasant digestive ailments in the majority of adults.
It is used in medicine for treating irritable bowel syndrome, problems with digestion and Crohn’s disease. It is used in supplementation as one of the components of complex probiotics available at www.muscle-zone.pl
