How is 4Life Transfer Factor different from other products?

Today, almost all immune system products on the market (vitamins, minerals, and herbs) have one thing in common: they provide temporary nutrition. However, the best long-term solution for an active, balanced immune system response is information. 4Life Transfer Factor works with your body's immune system in a unique way. It teaches your immune system to recognize, respond to, and remember potential invaders. Looking beyond simple nutrition to providing vital information is a profound paradigm shift, and only 4Life Transfer Factor products leverage this innovative approach. 

How does 4Life Transfer Factor support the immune system?

Transfer factors are some of the most unique molecules in your body. They carry important messages to immune cells. Transfer factors help the immune system to:

What are Transfer Factors?

In the first critical days of life for humans and other mammals, a mother passes on vital immune know ledge through the first meal—colostrum—which contains transfer factor molecules. 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.

How It Works?

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

• 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.

Transfer Factors aren’t vitamins, minerals, herbs, or fruit. Transfer factors are messenger molecules that convey wellness information. They help support the maintenance of general well-being. Transfer factor is a theory that immunity information in the body can be transferred from cell to cell. A cell has the ability to teach the immune system. 4Life Transfer Factor Science educate your immune cells, supporting your immune system’s ability to recognize, respond to, and remember potential threats.

Transfer factors are small peptides of approximately 44 amino acids that "transfer" or have the ability to express cell-mediated immunity from immune donors to non-immune recipients. 4Life Transfer Factor™ products are derived from egg yolk and cow colostrum extracts containing antigen information, providing the broadest spectrum transfer factor available. 

Transfer factors educate the immune system to recognize self from non-self, thus support healthy immune system function. Because it instructs the immune system to act appropriately, transfer factors are effective in supporting normal inflammatory response in the body, a key to healthy body system function.

4Life Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula combines Transfer Factor E-XF™ with a proprietary formulation of innate and adaptive immune system enhancers such as Inositol Hexaphosphate, Cordyceps, Beta Glucans, Maitake and Shiitake Mushrooms. These ingredients work together to trigger and enhance the various immune protective mechanisms of the body. Clinical studies show that 4Life Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula can increase Natural Killer cell activity up to 437 percent above baseline (Blind Independent study conducted by Dr. Anatoli Vorobiev, Head of Immunology, at the Russian Academy of Medical Science.).

In 1998, 4Life™ Chief Executive Officer David Lisonbee came across a patent for the extraction of transfer factors. Transfer factors are molecules found within the immune systems of all mammals and birds. Dubbed “the memory molecules,” transfer factors serve as important components of the immune system throughout your entire life.

Colostrum is known to create transfer factor in the body which in return helps build up the body’s immunity to remember certain illnesses.

All our transfer factor products are fully imported from the USA and Halal certified.

Where does 4Life Transfer Factor come from?

Nature has perfected a way to help keep its young healthy. A mother passes on vital immune know-how (gathered from her own experiences) in the first critical days of life. Mammals pass on this information through the mother’s first milk, or colostrum, while other animals pass the information through egg yolk. Transfer factors and nanofraction molecules are important components of this education, acting as nature’s first supplements. 

Chickens and cows live outside, exposing them to a variety of germs, which their immune systems must battle in order to stay healthy. Transfer factors and nanofraction molecules can be safely transferred to humans, making cow colostrum and chicken egg yolk excellent sources for immune system support.
