What is Transfer Factor?

As nature’s first supplement, these memory molecules transfer immune  experience to educate and prepare the newborn’s immune system to function in the world.

While vitamins and herbs provide nutrition to the immune system, transfer factors provide information so immune cells can do their jobs faster and more effective. Numerous research revealed that transfer factor molecules are abundant in nature.

Transfer Factor is known to be the only supplement in the world made by the immune system for the immune system. Transfer Factor molecules are completely unique, they contain information that can be transferred from one immune system to another. What it does is it educates, enhances, and balances the immune system which causes a positive domino effect on the entire human body.

Transfer Factor has three main functions. First, it educates or teaches the immune system cells to recognize different threats or abnormalities inside the body.

How It Works?

• Help immune cells quickly recognize foreign invaders or other potential threats
• Help the immune system respond more efficiently after an invader has been identified
• Lend a hand in remembering how to tackle each problem your immune system encounters, so your body knows exactly what to do next time

Second, it helps stimulate the activity of the immune cells responsible to fight invaders and threats.

Third, it helps balance the immune system when it is over reactive, a condition wherein good cells fight other good cells due to immune system error.

The strange molecules attached to the immune cells were the one responsible for transferring of immunity, and so he called them Transfer Factors.

4Life Research was at the forefront and hundreds of scientists were challenged to find Transfer Factor in other sources. US$ 42 Million was spent on research.

Babies that were not breast-fed during the first three days of birth are more prone to immune invaders. These led to the discovery of Transfer Factors in the first three days of milk called “Colostrum”. In cows, its found within the first five days or first 9 gallons of milk. Chicken egg yolk also contained similar Transfer Factor molecules. After testing these molecules were found to be similar in structure and are non-specie specific, meaning they can be transferred from humans to animals and vice-versa. They carry immunity codes or antibodies transferred from mother to baby, which helps the young offspring survive the first six months of life.

Through a patented filtration process, 4Life extracts transfer factors from cow colostrum and chicken egg yolks for the foundation of its Transferceutical products. People of all ages can benefit from nature’s first supplement by borrowing immune memory from the strong immune systems of these two animals.
