Lactoperoxidase is a peroxidase enzyme. This is secreted from the mammary, salivary and other mucosal glands. It functions as a natural and organic antibacterial agent. It is a member of the heme peroxidase enzymes. It is used in many different kinds of preservative foods, cosmetics, and ophthalmic products like igg powder. It is also used in dental and wound treatments. It also has many anti-tumor and anti-viral agents.
Lactoperoxidase is a very effective antimicrobial agent that is popularly used as an antibacterial and antimicrobial agent that is used in the microflora in milk and milk products. By adding hydrogen peroxide and thiocyanate the lactoperoxidase system is activated. This helps in extending the shelf life of refrigerated milk and processed milk. It is heat resistant.
Lactoperoxidase and oral care
Lactoperoxidase is considered to be extremely appropriate for the treatment of oral problems such as gingivitis and paradentosis. Lactoperoxidase is also added to toothpaste and mouthwashes. This agent helps in reducing oral bacteria and also the acid produced by those bacteria.
Lactoperoxidase and cosmetics
A mixture of lactoperoxidase, glucose and, glucose oxidase, iodide, thiocyanate is very effective in preserving cosmetics. It increases the shelf life of cosmetics and is completely safe to use.
Cancer and infections
Glucose oxidase and lactoperoxidase together are very effective to kill tumor cells and also fight many viral infections. Also, macrophages that are exposed to lactoperoxidase gets stimulated and kill cancer cells.
Innate immune system
The antibacterial properties of lactoperoxidase play a very crucial role in the immune defense system in humans. Lactoperoxidase efficiently inhibits the helicobacter pylori in a buffer.
Benefits of lactoperoxidase supplement
There are several benefits of lactoperoxidase supplement. It has been proven to show that it is bacteriostatic against gram-negative organisms. It also exhibits the pH-dependent bacteriocidal action to fight the gram-negative organisms that are found in thiocyanate and hydrogen peroxide. Lactoperoxidase also provided antimicrobial properties and is resistant to proteolysis. It also provides protein iodination.
The present invention is related to the milk products that are treated with an enhanced lactoperoxidase system. The lactoperoxidase supplement is activated by hydrogen peroxide source. Also, an oxidizable agent has added for example a halide to a milk composition. This process is done to inactivate the spoilage organisms and bacterial pathogens found in milk. The enhanced lactoperoxidase can be used in conjunction with pasteurization to profoundly reduce or remove the bacterial load that is found in waste-milk. The invention is also related to the methods of treating the waste-milk so that it can kill the bacteria by using the lactoperoxidase supplement.
In the last few years, several clinical studies show that the clinical efficiency of the laparoscopic system is effective in oral hygiene products. It is used in toothpaste. The application of this agent is not only restricted to treating caries, gingivitis, and periodontitis it can also be used in the treatment of the burning mouth syndrome that is called glossodynia. When combined with lactoferrin, lactoperoxidase also fights halitosis. It is also used to improve the symptoms of xerostomia.
