Transfer Factors and Your Immune System

BM, CHI


Your immune system’s job is to keep you healthy, quickly get rid of cellular waste and debris, and prevent unwanted organisms from invading and growing in your body. Generally, immune cells do three things: recognize, respond to, and remember potential health threats.

Transfer factors, the foundation of our Tri-Factor® Formula products, assist the immune system to work smarter and faster.


What Are Transfer Factors?

Transfer factors are small protein found in the immune system of all higher mammals. They transfer immune information from one immune cell to another. This information permanently changes how the newly-educated immune cell function. With better recognition, response and memory, these immune cells can function faster and more efficiently.

Transfer factors help the immune system recognize, respond to, and remember potential health threats.


Where can we get transfer factors?

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.

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 molecules can be safely transferred to humans (without losing its function) making cow colostrum and chicken egg yolk excellent sources for immune system support.


Where does 4Life Transfer Factor® come from?

In the late 1980s, a group of researchers discovered transfer factors in cow colostrum and patented the extraction process. After conducting their own research, 4Life Founders David and Bianca Lisonbee started 4Life® in 1998 to share 4Life Transfer Factor products with the world.

4Life holds patents on both the extraction of transfer factors from chicken egg yolks and the combination of transfer factors from chicken egg yolks and cow colostrum. There are several differences in the transfer factors from cow colostrum and chicken egg yolks.


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.
