Lactoferrin with Royal Jelly is prepared with goat milk and royal jelly that supplies nutrients, and growth factors for support of the immune system in children.

Lactoferrin is a peptide glycoprotein that belongs to the transferrin family and plays a role in binding and transporting iron in the body, as well as immunomodulatory and antioxidant activities, it is a natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory that supports the immune system and gut microflora, promote healthy sleep (1-9).

Royal Jelly is a mix of yellow-white secretions produced by the worker honeybees to supply a principal food for the queen honeybee. It is rich in minerals (mainly calcium and iron), vitamins (riboflavin, niacin, thiamine and B6, vit E), carbohydrates, and proteins fatty acids, sugars, biotin, sulfur, phosphorus, proteins, and essential amino acids.


  • May provide a bacteriostatic effect by binding iron to itself, starving viruses and bacteria of the iron necessary for their survival.

  • May provide an immunomodulatory effect and enhance the body’s immune response

  • May support gut Health, by promoting the growth of selected probiotic strains.

  • May improve sleep 

Lactoferrin is a protein naturally found in breast milk (cow milk and human milk), and is also found in fluids in the eye, nose, respiratory tract, intestine, and elsewhere.  The antiviral properties of lactoferrin make it a great natural supplement that could also be used as an adjunct for COVID-19 and for various other Respiratory Tract Infections (RTIs) according to a team of researchers led by the University of Huddersfield (10). It was found that Lactoferrin intake may improve sleep conditions, especially morning symptoms in children above one year of age. (11-12)

Royal jelly for children is a great activator of the immune system since it helps fight infections and has revitalizing properties, increasing the body’s resistance. Compounds of Royal Jelly like jelleins, royalisin, MRJPs, royalactin, and apisimin could be classified as antimicrobial peptides, appear to be a natural alternative to conventional antibiotic (13)
