Lactoferrin (LF), also known as lactotransferrin (LTF), is a multifunctional protein of the transferrin family.
It is most important super critical protein. Lactoferrin belongs to the innate immune system. Apart from its main biological function, namely binding and transport of iron ions, lactoferrin also has antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic, catalytic, anti-cancer, anti-allergic and radioprotecting functions and properties.
Only two natural sources. Human mother’s milk and Bos Indicus (Indian originated Desi Gau) Raw Cow milk.
Any wonder why Ayurveda uses Cow milk as medicine in many diseases?
Any wonder why Breastfeeding is critical for your child?
Any wonder why you must give first milk to newborn without fail?
Any wonder why we revere Cow (Gau) as mother?
Any wonder why doctors in India (and now elsewhere) prescribe Gau milk if mother cannot lactate or mother dies after giving birth? And this is going on for ages.
Any wonder why Shri Krishna’s portrait is never without gau?
Bos Indicus Raw Cow milk should be procured ethically. It is useful as medicine when mother Gau is treated like mother. Mother’s calves are treated like son and daughter. Gau should be kept freely. Should not be given hormone injection. Should not be forced for pregnancy by artificial sperm injections. Should allow to graze freely (For this to happen, govt must stop land mafias who sell mother’s grazing land to real estate developers.
Btw, no plant can generate Lactoferrin as they are not mammalian (=who are nourished by mother milk). And not all animals milk contain this important protein. And lab-made (made from specially processed genetically modified rice) Lactoferrin comes with side effects and cannot be consumed after 14 days.

इस त्रिगुणात्मक जगत् में तीन पुष्टियाँ बनी रर्हें – (1) अन्न की बहुतायत (2) पुरुषों की बहुलता तथा (3) पशुओं की बहुतायत | ये इस संसार में बनी रहें, पशुपति दूध-घी से भरपूर रहें | दूध-घी कहाँ से आये ? पशुओं से | पशुओं मे गौ का घी-दूध सबकी अपेक्षा उत्कृष्ट माना गया है | अतएव वेद में गौ की महिमा बहुत है | यथा – गावो भगो गाव इन्द्रो मे | (अथर्ववेद 4|21|5) = गौएँ ही भाग्य और गौएँ ही मेरा ऐश्वर्य हैं |
सन्तान सहित गौएँ उत्तम चारे के कारण पुष्ट हों, उत्तम जलपान के स्थान में शुद्ध जल का पान करें |
आज गोभक्त आर्य इस उपदेश को भूल सा गया है | अब न अच्छा चारा देते हैं और न गौओं को शुद्ध जल पिलाने की व्यवस्था की जाती है | यह तभी हो सकता है जब स्व आ दमे सुदुधा यस्य धेनुः – अपने घर में ही उत्तम दूध देने वाली गौ हो |
वेद के कथनानुसार जिसके दूध के पीने से दुर्बल भी हृष्ट पुष्ट हो जाते हैं और श्रीहीन सुश्रीक = सुन्दर शोभामान् हो जाते हैं, उससे पूरा लाभ उठाने के लिए उसे घर में पालना अच्छा होता है | इसका दूध पीने से गोपति जल में विद्युत् के समान चमकता है ||

I feel little ashamed for our ignorance, when we Indians call ‘Jersey’ ,breed of wild European animal Aurochs as ‘गाय’, worship it and drink her milk as if we are drinking गाय दूध. And more dangerous ignorance is to be ashamed when we don’t know that Aurochs breed’s(As if Jersey) milk has CASOMORPHINE, whose accumulation in body leads to a peptide poisoning. This is particularly often reported in patients with ADHD, autism and schizophrenia.
Why Food chain correction is most critical problem?
Apart from external environmental factors affecting mind space, it is our polluted food and water sources, that play major role in weakening our psyche and slip ourselves in the mode societal corruption.
When people talk about neurological disorders, they consider only those disorders which exhibit visible symptoms (Autism, Phobias etc). For me, lack of integrity or moral perversion is also a neurological disorder, albeit silent one. It is getting diagnosed, only during harvesting time of past deeds of individual. And in most cases, it is never diagnosed during life time.
Corruption in society is resultant of polluted food origins. While working on correcting political system, it is equally important to see that majority of us, get nutritional food, both physical and mental.
Mental food by disinfecting Education system, physical food by disinfecting agriculture.
If you think you are sane citizen, contribute, in your capacity possible, for politics, education and agriculture.
With corrupted and weak psyche and body of majority in us, it is difficult to penetrate sane reformative ideas in our minds.
You go and explain, ideal democracy but if the other person is devoid of pure food and water, it is difficult for him being receptive and understand sane ideas necessary to change the Nation’s destiny from current shoddy state. Even if he/she understands, he/she won’t do much in action due to weak body and mind. For survival, compromises happen and saga of personal involvement in corruption continues.
Food -> Education -> Political awareness -> Critical Mass for change -> Revolution
Any upheaval, out of reaction, would remain temporary since roots are corrupt and in hibernation. With favorable environment to flourish, weakness will sprout again and reforms will topple again towards nadir.
If roots are replaces by food and education, it is difficult for any external force to break strong National fabric.
Political awareness minus Food and Education -> Revolution minus prolonged stability.
Every third sample of food lifted from market, be it local shop or super-mall, is adulterated. Not only that. It is sophisticated adulteration under govt. norms and laws. You cannot catch them.
This is age of presentation. PowerPoint generation. Highlight generation. Bright colors. Colors added to food, to serve your eyes more than body, are major causes of Cancer. Take that. And still, you cannot resist eating them.
‘कभी कभी टेस्टके लिए खाते है…’ What the heck? Why not ZERO TOLERANCE for most important priority of life i.e. Food?
Take for example, Jalebi. The yellow jalebi which makes your mouth water whenever you pass a sweet-shop contains metanil yellow, a coal-tar dye which produces cancer.
The bright green canned peas you relish so much in your alu-mutter or mutter-paneer contains blue VRS, a carcinogen.
The glowing yellow haldi powder which lends color to your curry, has lead-chromate, causes anemia, paralysis and in young women, abortion.
And this is not some recent practice. Above examples are from old book (1974) I found in my father’s library.
“दिखाओपे मत जाओ,अपनी अक्कल लड़ाओ”- One good habit, lifesaving.
Shocking right? 🙂 We deserve it for our sheer incompetence to respect mother nature and blind race for greed!
And can you imagine the impact? Whole plethora of mental disorders! Zombies everywhere!! Psychopaths and rapists! I am not trying to fear-monger! This will be harsh reality of near future! (And so be prepared! More than books, educate your kids for strength building! ) In fact, it is happening all around! Have you not seen increasing number of such psychopath(s) hijacking society?
Who will help?
Of course, गौ माता! (Desi cows with hump. Scientific name: Bos Indicus) 
गौ माता has Surya-Ketu Nadi in hump. It is this special feature that makes her different from other breeds. It is this नाड़ी that transforms प्राणशक्ति from प्राण दाता सूर्य भगवान् ! Vitamin D3, the gross and raw form of biological solar power is bonus!
Milk of Gau mata is full of DHA!
As per this research , DHA with D3 controls Brain Serotonin, Affecting Behavior and Psychiatric Disorders!
Here  , I already shared that serotonin in blood makes mother’s milk more nutritious!
Can you connect the dots?
Desi Gau ghee is full of DHA Docosahexaenoic acid. No other source can compete with the ghee produced by churning method from desi Gau mata’s ethically procured A2 milk. One more condition is that ghee has to be prepared during Sunrise (Vitamin D3). All this is not possible in dairy from where we get your ghee :).
We see increasing number of kids in hyper active mode. ADHD and ASD. Many clinical disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression share as a unifying attribute low brain serotonin.
Serotonin production and function is linked to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, suggesting one way these important micronutrients help the brain function and affect the way we behave.
If anyone in your circle is suffering from insomnia (can’t sleep), migraine, headache, you can try this experiment of Desi Gau ghee nasal drops. Make ghee lukeworm and apply 1-2 drops in both nasal passages before sleeping. Do it for 90 days.
PS: Before you try ghee from any gau shala, make sure that calf is given enough milk and milk is taken once calf is satiated for that session. There are no hormone used to increase production of milk. Place should be neat and clean. Cows must graze in open land for 3-4 hrs daily. Cows must get clean drinking water.
It is not advisable for:
1) Pregnant lady or during menses cycle
2) After bath, exercise, meal and intercourse.
I personally prefer before sleeping.
It Is bos indicus who will bless this land again with abundance of digested Prana (her prasad in form of dung, urine and milk). Not some reductionist D#, K, Ca etc but wholesome Prana! Prana that replenish the sick and timid!
Free pasture land for grazing is must for quality prasad! More she graze under sun-light, better would be her prasad (including D3!)
It is important and more cost-effective to imbibe digested Prana (Raw Prana passing through digestive track of mother cow. Churned Prana). When ghee is prepared, potency of digested prana increases manifold! Far far better than Vitamin D3 injections which are difficult to digest for body!
Freely grazing cows => Serotonin + Sun rays + DHA from grass => Quality milk, dung and urine!
Serotonin regulates a wide variety of brain functions and behaviors. Here, we synthesize previous findings that serotonin regulates executive function, sensory gating, and social behavior and that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior all share in common defects in these functions. It has remained unclear why supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D improve cognitive function and behavior in these brain disorders. Here, we propose mechanisms by which serotonin synthesis, release, and function in the brain are modulated by vitamin D and the 2 marine omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Brain serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan by tryptophan hydroxylase 2, which is transcriptionally activated by vitamin D hormone. Inadequate levels of vitamin D (∼70% of the population) and omega-3 fatty acids are common, suggesting that brain serotonin synthesis is not optimal. We propose mechanisms by which EPA increases serotonin release from presynaptic neurons by reducing E2 series prostaglandins and DHA influences serotonin receptor action by increasing cell membrane fluidity in postsynaptic neurons. We propose a model whereby insufficient levels of vitamin D, EPA, or DHA, in combination with genetic factors and at key periods during development, would lead to dysfunctional serotonin activation and function and may be one underlying mechanism that contributes to neuropsychiatric disorders and depression. This model suggests that optimizing vitamin D and marine omega-3 fatty acid intake may help prevent and modulate the severity of brain dysfunction.—Patrick, R. P., Ames, B. N. Vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids control serotonin synthesis and action, part 2: relevance for ADHD, bipolar, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior.
Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages and serum vitamin D levels in early childhood
“Among children who drank both types of milk, each additional cup of non–cow’s milk beverage consumed was associated with a 5% decrease in 25-hydroxyvitamin D level,” the researchers write. The estimated was adjusted for clinically relevant variables, the authors note.
Interpretation: Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages was associated with decreased serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in early childhood. This association was modified by cow’s milk consumption, which suggests a trade-off between consumption of cow’s milk fortified with higher levels of vitamin D and non–cow’s milk with lower vitamin D content.
Last Sunday, my doctor friend and I were on shopping survey. We visited hyper shopping places in the city to study different processed food items and their ingredients.
We found many shocking ingredients. Maggi is just a tip of the iceberg. There are many dangers beyond heavy metals.
First shock was canola oil in feeding formula powder for infants!
This is insane. Canola oil for infants?
Like all modern vegetable oils, canola oil goes through the process of refining, bleaching and degumming — all of which involve high temperatures or chemicals of questionable safety. And because canola oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which easily become rancid and foul-smelling when subjected to oxygen and high temperatures, it must be deodorized. The standard deodorization process removes a large portion of the omega-3 fatty acids by turning them into trans fatty acids. Although the Canadian government lists the trans content of canola at a minimal 0.2 percent, research at the University of Florida at Gainesville, found trans levels as high as 4.6 percent in commercial liquid oil. The consumer has no clue about the presence of trans fatty acids in canola oil because they are not listed on the label.
A 2014 review article published in “Vascular Pharmacology” discussed the detrimental effects of heated oils on cardiovascular health, such as vascular inflammation and arteriosclerosis. 
Besides, 90% of Canola oil comes from Genetically Modified Rape seeds. GMO crops demands more pesticides so they come with high level of toxic chemicals. It affects body :
Blood platelet abnormalities
Retards normal growth (why it’s illegal to use in infant formulas)
Free radical damage
Higher cancer risks due to the hydrogenation process
And this highly indigestible food for kids? This was our first shock.
PS: You may find many researchers in support of canola. But beyond that, use this thumb rules to select oil:
1) Can your region grow this oil seeds?
2) Is it obtained from Genetically modified crop or not?
3) Is it obtained from cold-press method of high heating chemical process?
Your breastfeeding has everything that your infant need. Never substitute it with feeding formula. If you cannot feed for some reasons, use Desi cow’s milk. There are many home-made formulas that you can prepare using grains. Try them. Research about them. But never think about feeding formulas.
Always see ingredient and if you find canola oil, avoid. It is not for us.
Any oil that is not obtained by cold-press is not worth. (Although pressing and grinding produces heat through friction, the temperature must not rise above 120°F (49°C) for any oil to be considered cold pressed. Cold pressed oils are produced at even lower temperatures. Cold pressed oils retain all of their flavor, aroma, and nutritional value.). Gradually, find sources of such oil. Or buy your own home-use micro oil mill.
Processed food is fundamentally faulty from roots. So against the Art and Science of cooking. Try N-numbers of measures but it will remain life-consuming weapon. Weapon that can silently kill the generation after generation until civilization/community/nation.
Fact: 1 year or more years old ghee is potent medicine (So take it as medicinal quantity and not in large quantity).
Doubt : Which breed’s ghee? Can buffalo ghee or Jersey cow ghee give same results?
Some procedural facts about ghee:
1) Ghee should be from desi breed Bos Inducus
2) Milk should be procured as per ethics of worship*
3) Ghee should be prepared using traditional manthan method (Majority of pure ghee claimers prepare it using fat separation method)
4) Ghee should be prepared before sunrise by human interventions (without automatic machines)
5) Ghee should be preserved in dark area of home in chini mitti bottle or glass bottle (Good is glass is non-transparent like many modern pharma drugs come in)
Last two points also applies to Jaggery preservation.
Why not Buffalo ghee or Jersey ghee?
1) Spiritual reason:
General tendency of Buffalo or Jersey cow is Tamasik in nature. Milk procured from them too carry their subtle nature. Tamasik tendency cannot cure any sickness. It is devoid of Prana shakti.
Buffalo is exception in some cases as in few ayurvedic texts buffalo milk is prescribed as medicine but not buffalo ghee.
2) Physiological reason:
Protein in Jersey milk is A1. It is now well-established fact that A1 milk is not good to consume for humans. Besides, Jersey cow gives amaple amount of milk so nutritional density in milk is lower than Desi Cow breed (and so prana shakti is also divided).
Buffalo milk’s fat is not digestible i.e. long chain fatty acids. So ghee is difficult to digest. Person with Pitta tendency also feel hard to digest. In sickness, digestion power is at lowest level.
Desi Gau mata as hump which helps to convert Prana shakti from the Sun and instill it in her prasad (mutra, gobar, milk). One of the fundamental reason of quick healing is : Prana shakti.
Buffalo and Jersey lacks this. So devoid of Prana shakti.
More potent prana shakti attracts more pro-biotics to colonized in old ghee. When you take them as medicine, it can heal the cell-level metabolism as well as organ-level metabolism.
****Ethics of worship Gau mata: Do not treat her as milk machine. Only take excess milk once calves are satiated. Do not force artificial pregnancies. Do not force hormones to increase milk yield. Do not keep them in prison. They must graze daily in jungle or Gauchar.
You may digest the buffalo ghee but the amount of Prana you lose is difficult to replenish by ordinary humans. So what happens?
As per research  , Suicide has been around for as long as human society, ranking among the top 13 causes of death in all ages worldwide and continues to challenge our collective wisdom. The present study showed that suicide rates have increased since 1994, indicating a grave problem that needs to be solved.
Two things to note:
Suicide is extreme stage of depression
Indian market was flooded with fast food with 1991 liberalization
As per this research  , A diet high in refined carbohydrates may lead to an increased risk for new-onset depression in postmenopausal women, according to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Consumption of carbohydrates increases blood sugar levels to varying degrees, depending on the type of food ingested. The more highly refined the carbohydrate, the higher its score on the glycemic index (GI) scale. The GI scale, which goes from 0-100, measures the amount of sugar found in the blood after eating. Refined foods such as white bread, white rice, and soda trigger a hormonal response in the body to reduce blood sugar levels. This response also may cause or exacerbate mood changes, fatigue, and other symptoms of depression.
The investigators found that progressively higher dietary GI scores and consumption of added sugars and refined grains were associated with increased risk of new-onset depression in post-menopausal women. Greater consumption of dietary fiber, whole grains, vegetables, and non-juice fruits was associated with decreased risk. This suggests that dietary interventions could serve as treatments and preventive measures for depression. Further study is needed to examine the potential of this novel option for treatment and prevention and to see if similar results are found in the broader population.
 Trends in rates and methods of suicide in India
We (Dharma based living) see food as a whole. We don’t reduce food into nutrients. And then choose food based on nutrient!
Protein-rich! – That is not the goal of dharma-based meal selection! Prana-rich! -is the goal. Digestion-friendly meal is our goal.
Read it.Why and how vegetable proteins provides more sense of soulfulness.
Beans and peas increase fullness more than meat
Meals based on legumes such as beans and peas are more satiating than pork and veal-based meals according to a recent study by the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Nutrition, Excercise and Sports. Results suggest that sustainable eating may also help with weight loss.
Numerous modern dietary recommendations encourage high protein consumption to help with weight loss or prevent the age-related loss of muscle mass. Furthermore, consuming more vegetable-based protein from beans and peas, and less protein from meats such as pork, veal and beef, is recommended because meat production is a far greater burden on our climate than vegetable cultivation. Until now, we haven’t known very much about how legumes like beans and peas stack up against meat in satiating hunger. As a result, little has been known about the impact of vegetables and the possibility of them catalyzing or maintaining weight loss.
High protein vegetables fill more
The recent study demonstrated that protein-rich meals based on beans and peas increased satiety more in the study participants than protein-rich veal and pork based meals. In the study, 43 young men were served three different meals in which patties – consisting of either beans/peas or veal/pork – were a key element. The study also demonstrated that when participants ate a protein-rich meal based on beans and peas, they consumed 12% fewer calories in their next meal than if they had eaten a meat-based meal.
“The protein-rich meal composed of legumes contained significantly more fiber than the protein-rich meal of pork and veal, which probably contributed to the increased feeling of satiety”, according to the head researcher, Professor Anne Raben of the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports.
Sustainable eating can help weight loss
Most interestingly, the study also demonstrated that a less protein-rich meal based on beans and peas was as satiating and tasty as the protein-rich veal and pork-based meals.
“It is somewhat contrary to the widespread belief that one ought to consume a large amount of protein because it increases satiety more. Now, something suggests that one can eat a fiber-rich meal, with less protein, and achieve the same sensation of fullness. While more studies are needed for a definitive proof, it appears as if vegetable-based meals – particularly those based on beans and peas – both can serve as a long term basis for weight loss and as a sustainable eating habit”, concludes Professor Raben.
Conclusion: Vegetable-based meals (beans/peas) influenced appetite sensations favorably compared to animal-based meals (pork/veal) with similar energy and protein content, but lower fiber content. Interestingly, a vegetable-based meal with low protein content was as satiating and palatable as an animal-based meal with high protein content.
Most of us eat food for taste and not to satisfy needs of the body. Instead of strict division of food eating habits, one must develop synergy with the local face of the mother nature. Food has to be local. In extreme terrains like desert or jungle, there can be variation. But for most of mankind, body physiology is more inclined to suggest vegetarian food.

It is tomfoolery to eat for tongue-lust.
I extend this research and say: you are what your 7 generations ate. Not only food, but also mental imprints, habits, conditioning and all!
So, your food habits (or all habits) in teen age or youth , are not only affecting your old age but all upcoming generations! Don’t curse them by your mindless living!
If you have teen-age boy and girl, groom them. Explain them importance of living and eating disciplined food!
Do read, learn and take care for all would-be mothers! Parenting is National duty!
You are what your mother eats
For years, pregnant mothers have questioned their nutritional habits: “Will eating more cause my baby to be overweight?” Or, “I’m eating for two, so it won’t hurt to have an extra serving, right?”
While many factors, such as the age of the mother, overall health and genetics ultimately play a role, the correlation between a mother’s nutrition habits and metabolism has been proved to directly impact the growth of her child. And researchers at OHSU in Portland, Oregon, believe they may be one step closer to knowing why.
In a study published online in Nature Communications, the research team, led by Jae W. Lee, Ph.D., has demonstrated that two neurons key to growth and metabolism — GHRH and AgRP — are developmentally interconnected.
Located in the hypothalamus region of the brain, within a grouping of neurons known as the arcuate nucleus, GHRH, or growth hormone-release hormone, neurons orchestrate body growth and maturation. Meanwhile, AgRP, or Agouti-related peptide, neurons stimulate feeding and suppress energy usage.
