IMMUNE COMPLEX 2.0 FROM HFQ HEALTH | PREMIUM LACTOFERRIN PLUS VITAMIN C AND ZINC AS A BOOSTER IN ONE CAPSULE

The Immune Complex from HFQ Health represents a scientifically substantiated blend of 70 mg top-grade Lactoferrin, 300 mg natural Vitamin C, and 15 mg Zinc bisglycinate TRAACS™. It offers the immune system essential fortification during the cold winter months and can help reduce the duration and symptoms of an emerging cold.

High-quality Lactoferrin for the body’s innate immune defense

The centerpiece of the Immune Complex is the proprietary, lactose-free, and lyophilized immune protein Lactoferrin, derived from pasture milk. This protein is an essential component of our defense system and is, among others, produced by leukocytes. The proprietary Lactoferrin has shown immune-regulating and iron-regulating properties in research and bolsters the immune defense in conjunction with Vitamin C and Zinc.

300 mg of Vitamin C and 15 mg of Zinc – precisely dosed with the highest quality

Vitamin C is one of the most studied, most effective, and best-tolerated vital nutrients to counter immune deficiency, problems with iron uptake, and fatigue. The HFQ Immune Complex contains Vitamin C from PureWay-C® enriched with citrus bioflavonoids and lyophilized Acerola fruit powder.

Zinc acts in combination with Vitamin C and Lactoferrin as a powerful trio, which is crucial for an effective immune response. This trace element plays a role in many bodily processes, including immune regulation, collagen formation, and antioxidant mechanisms.

The Immune Complex from HFQ Health optimally combines Lactoferrin, Vitamin C, and Zinc. These high-quality and bioactive top ingredients are easily absorbed by the body. They offer valuable fortification during the cold season and during flu and allergy times!

Immune Complex 2.0 | Lactoferrin + Vitamin C + Zinc | 40 Capsules | Premium Dietary Supplement by HFQ Health

Made in Austria

The HFQ Health Premium Lactoferrin is lactose-free and freeze-dried

HFQ Lactoferrin is entirely without lactose, making it ideal for those who cannot tolerate lactose. Thus, the benefits of Lactoferrin can be enjoyed without bothersome side effects like stomach pain, gas, and diarrhea, which are caused by lactose. In conclusion, Lactoferrin is suitable even for people with lactose intolerance.

Athletic Benefits of HFQ Premium Lactoferrin

Iron plays a central role for all athletic individuals. An optimal iron balance promotes the production of red blood cells, leading to efficient oxygen transport in the body. The longer athletes can train in the aerobic zone, meaning with adequate oxygen, the later they reach the anaerobic threshold, where the body incurs an oxygen debt. This delays fatigue and acidification of the muscles. Especially in endurance sports, the need for iron is elevated, for both men and women.

Lactoferrin in Iron Deficiency

Lactoferrin, also known as Lactotransferrin, belongs to the protein family of transferrins. Transferrins ensure the optimal distribution of iron in our body. It thus has the ability to bind iron, not by removing iron from the body, but by naturally regulating the iron balance. Therefore, even when taking high doses of Lactoferrin, there is never the risk of iron deficiency.

Natural Lactoferrin has an iron saturation of about 10%. This means that for every 250 mg capsule, about 25 mg of bound iron is also taken up. In cases of acute iron deficiency, a combination with a good iron supplement is recommended.

Lactoferrin or Colostrum Capsules?

Colostrum supplements are widespread, hence more well-known, and have a very similar effect on our organism. The reason for this is that colostrum is derived from the mother cow’s milk, which is produced immediately after birth (colostral milk). This colostral milk (also known as first milk) contains important ingredients to optimally prepare the immune system of the newborn for environmental influences.

The most important ingredient of colostral milk is, in turn, Lactoferrin, perfect for strengthening the newborn’s immune system. The dosage of Lactoferrin in colostral milk is therefore much more concentrated than in regular milk. However, despite this comparably high concentration of Lactoferrin in colostrum, only a few mg of Lactoferrin are contained in colostrum capsules!

From a therapeutic perspective, we therefore see the pure active ingredient in a higher dosage as the more attractive and often more cost-effective alternative.

ZINC

Why is zinc so important for our body?

Zinc is one of the essential trace elements. It plays a central role in numerous metabolic processes in our body. The best-known advantages of zinc include its positive effects on fertility, brain function, connective tissue, and the immune system, especially during the cooler months. In addition, zinc effectively combats cold-related illnesses.

But zinc doesn’t only contribute to strengthening the immune system; it also has many other essential functions in the body!

Zinc is crucial for cell division, DNA formation, protein production, carbohydrate metabolism, reproduction, and the formation of sperm and egg cells. It also plays a role in maintaining normal testosterone levels. Furthermore, zinc promotes the health of skin, hair, and nails.

How is a zinc deficiency manifested?

A lack of zinc can, depending on its duration and severity, lead to various symptoms. These include skin issues, such as dry and flaky skin, hair loss, changes in taste and sense of smell, growth disorders, weakened immune defenses, and fatigue and listlessness.

In advanced stages, a zinc deficiency can have serious health consequences, such as impaired wound healing, an increased risk of infections, and vision problems. It’s crucial to identify and rectify a zinc deficiency early on to prevent potential health risks.

VITAMIN C

The results of scientific studies show, compared to other ascorbate raw materials:

  • 233% higher absorption in the intestine.
  • 12% higher antioxidant results when using the ORAC method.
  • 12 times more efficient in stimulating healthy neurons and promoting nerve regeneration.
  • 40% faster fibroblast formation for optimal tissue wound healing.

Why Bioactive Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids is a Smart Choice

Maximize the benefits of Vitamin C by opting for a bioactive variant combined with bioflavonoids!

Bioflavonoids are extensively researched plant compounds that enhance the body’s absorption of Vitamin C and also exhibit their own immune-regulating effects. As nature intended, the best results are achieved when Vitamin C is consumed alongside a spectrum of plant compounds, such as flavonoids, ensuring the best possible absorption in the intestine and maximum efficacy.

Vitamin C in its Most Advanced Form

PureWay-C® represents an advanced, patented form of Vitamin C. Developed through comprehensive scientific studies, it pairs Vitamin C with lipid metabolites and citrus bioflavonoids. This considerably enhances the absorption and efficiency of uptake in the body. Thanks to this combination, Vitamin C is more effectively transported across the intestinal wall into the bloodstream.

In various clinical trials, PureWay-C® demonstrated superior efficacy compared to other forms of Vitamin C. This is attributed to the fact that PureWay-C® is the only Vitamin C product combined with a special patented fatty acid blend. This dramatically boosts absorption through the lipid-rich cell membrane of the intestinal cells.

Acerola cherry as a vitamin C source

Freeze-Dried Acerola Powder from HFQ Health

HFQ Health’s lyophilized Acerola fruit powder is a premium product derived from organic farming and is sourced directly from fresh Acerola cherries. Freeze-drying is a state-of-the-art process in food production that preserves over 95% of the micronutrients, including a significant amount of Vitamin C. Not only is this powder rich in Vitamin C, but due to the combination of all the micronutrients contained within it – as they naturally occur – it also boasts high bioavailability. For those looking to meet their Vitamin C requirements naturally, this product is the perfect choice.

NATURAL vs SYNTHETIC
Vitamin C Bioavailability and Nutrient Composition

Compared to lab-produced synthetic Vitamin C, which is often used in dietary supplements for cost reasons, natural Vitamin C has the clear advantage of working synergistically with many other micronutrients. This blend of secondary plant substances, trace elements, and minerals offers a multitude of health benefits, both on their own and in combination with Vitamin C. Additionally, it has been found that Vitamin C, when paired with these natural plant compounds, is better absorbed by the body, thus exhibiting higher bioavailability.

Without fillers

No fillers, magnesium salts (magnesium stearate), binders, or other additives

HFQ Lactoferrin supplements stand out for their purity as they, unlike many competitor products, do not contain unnecessary fillers or additives, but exclusively valuable ingredients.

Fillers such as magnesium salts (magnesium stearate, E 470 b) or rice flour are often used to increase the quantity of dietary supplements. However, this can lead to a reduction in the proportion of actual active ingredients in tablets or capsules.

It seems advisable to avoid such additives in general, as certain compounds can be transformed into potentially carcinogenic substances in the body (ETH Zurich).

One should also differentiate when it comes to sweeteners. Some artificial sweeteners like cyclamate (E 952) should be avoided due to the lack of long-term studies.

Others, even if labeled as an additive or E-number, are naturally occurring and harmless, such as carotenes (E 160a), citric acid (E 330), or pectin (E 440). The data on sweeteners like sucralose has considerably improved since around 2022. Such natural additives can help optimize the stability or taste of a product.

Nevertheless, individual persons may be sensitive to specific ingredients and subsequently experience allergic or other undesirable reactions.

Potential Dangers of Certain Additives

Some additives can also potentially be harmful. For instance, the white dye titanium oxide (E 171), which was classified as unsafe by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in 2021, is still present in some capsule products.

The colorant compounds of the Azo group, such as Tartrazine (E 102) or Azorubine (E 122), are scientifically questionable. Tartrazine was banned in Germany for several years before its EU accession. According to the EFSA, these Azo dyes are linked to rare allergic reactions, can exacerbate ADHD and hyperactivity, and therefore should carry a warning label when they exceed a certain threshold.

Gastric Acid-Resistant Cellulose Capsules Explained

With a typical capsule, stomach acid dissolves the shell and releases its content. Certain substances, such as enzymes, can be destroyed by this acid. Therefore, they cannot exert their effects in the intestine and are not fully transported from the intestinal wall into the bloodstream. Hence, capsule shells that can pass through the stomach without damage are crucial for products like HFQ Health Premium Lactoferrin and other substances sensitive to stomach acid.

Capsules that are resistant to stomach acid (like those for Lactoferrin) only release their ingredients in the intestine. They have a coating that protects them from the gastric acid. This is crucial since the active ingredients are primarily transferred from the intestinal wall into the bloodstream. Research has shown that stomach acid can degrade Lactoferrin by up to 40%. This would adversely affect its absorption capacity, iron regulation, and intrinsic functions (Bellamy et al. 1992). The gastric acid-resistant capsules from HFQ Health prevent this decomposition.

The said capsule only dissolves after about an hour. For optimal efficacy, experts recommend taking the capsule on an empty stomach and then waiting 10 to 15 minutes before eating. This ensures that the stomach is empty and the capsule quickly reaches the small intestine.
