How Transfer Factor Works

Transfer factor is an all natural substance that works by "teaching" your own immune system to identify infectious agents that attack your body every day.

Dr Rob RobertsonRob Robertson, MD - "Transfer factors are tiny protein molecules that are produced by immune cells called T-cells. It allows the immune system to remember conditions for which immunity has already been established. When a person has been infected, for example, with chicken pox in childhood, their body develops a memory of that illness, and prevents the person from becoming re-infected with it later in life. In the future, the specific immune transfer factor molecule for chicken pox will endow the immune system with the exact ‘blueprint’ of what chicken pox looks like, and the body will be able to quickly recognize and respond to any possible re-infection.

Many of these transfer factors - or "immune memory molecules," were introduced to us from our mother’s milk or colostrum, which is the richest source of concentrated transfer factors known to scientists. Transfer factors in colostrum have the sole purpose of transferring immunity from the mother to the baby’s immature immune system. All mammals produce transfer factor, but scientists prefer to work with chicken and normal bovine colostrum. A healthy cow already produces millions of different transfer factors, but when the cow comes into contact with a pathogen such as a virus, it produces a new transfer factor for that specific virus or pathogen.

For individuals challenged by specific pathogens – such as those suffering with chronic illnesses like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, supplementation with the appropriate transfer factor molecule may provide the ‘missing link,’ thereby allowing the immune system to target and destroy the offending pathogen, and mitigate the symptoms of the disease."

The two most abundant and safest sources of transfer factors come from cow colostrum and egg yolks. 4Life uses these sources in its products to harness both the broad spectrum and targeted immune benefits they provide. Both the cow and the chicken live mainly outside where they eat from the ground, drink from a shared water source, endure all types of weather conditions and contend with all the challenges that come with living in a herd. These open environments leave them exposed to a variety of germs, bacteria and viruses every day, which their immune systems must battle against and then maintain in their memory to keep them healthy throughout their lives. Fortunately, the heroic nature of their immune systems gives them the strength they need to survive. 

With Transfer Factor you have the ability to borrow and utilize immune memory from the cow and the chicken so when you come in contact with the same infectious organisms, you have an incredible advantage~ your system is ready to remember, recognize and respond to foreign invaders faster and more aggressively.  4Life uses both the cow and chicken to source polyvalent, or broad-spectrum, transfer factors that provide a wide range of immune support. For targeted support, egg sources are specially farmed to benefit specific body systems. Transfer Factor represents a foundation of health for animals and humans alike. They are rare elements that remain constant, no matter what the source, and can be universally shared to strengthen immunity— to protect and enhance life.
