Proferrin®, proven health benefits
Proferrin® activity on health is supported by several in vitro studies monitored by Ingredia’s R&D team:
- Anti-microbial properties – Proferrin® reduces pathogenic bacterial colonies and inhibits formation of dental plaque (first steps in caries’ formation).
- An essential support to gut health – Proferrin® helps to renew epithelial cells (growth and differentiation), an important barrier against infections.
- An outstanding action on the immune response – Proferrin® has an anti-inflammatory effect – it reduces the release of TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor), a pro-inflammatory marker.
