I have been intending to start on the LX protocol (I was waiting for my order of Jarrow Lactoferrin to come in), but I have some questions.
I've read over the protocol a few times, and I didn't see what the purpose of the xylitol is. I have some in any case (make sure to get the real stuff that is from birch). What role does it play here?
Also, while researching lactoferrin and biofilms, I came across this disheartening piece of information:
"However, the team also found that lactoferrin did not break down
existing biofilms. "This means it would have to be used early in
infections, before biofilms form," says Singh."
It seems like it would be beneficial in preventing a new infection from taking hold, but not in disintegrating existing biofilms.
From all of the bloodwork that I had done, one of the things that I found out is that I have low ferritin levels, despite eating a diet high in beef, liver, eggs, shellfish, spinach, etc. I've done a lot of research on the role that lactoferrin plays, and it seems that, for most people, it causes their ferritin levels to decrease, which means that it's not a good option for me.
