Works well for me.

I alternate this with an iron supplement. Works well.

My cat likes this better than brands I used previously

I use lactoferrin to combat feline herpes, based on published veterinary research. My cat no longer has the severe red-tinged drooling and eye discharge she displayed before I began mixing lactoferrin into her food. Previous brands I used had only 250 mg per capsule, and she also began to reject food containing either of the 2 brands. When I switched to this brand she gobbled up the food with no problem, and it is just as effective (I mix 1 cap with 2 small cans of food), and now my other cats are willing to eat the canned food also. So I guess there must have been some off flavor about the previous brands.

I also can use lactoferrin to raise my ferritin levels (stored iron), to prevent Restless Legs Syndrome. Great as an alternative to iron supplements or infusions, which disagree with me. So a win for both species in our home!

Clear bright eyes.

I took this product to help with feminine issues and hygiene, and I believe it’s really helping. Another thing I didn’t expect is that my eyes are sooo white! It cleared up the red and yellow in my eyes.
