Transfer Factor FAQ’s

What are transfer factors?

Unlike common supplements you find in every health food store, transfer factors aren’t vitamins, minerals, or herbs (substances that add nutrients to your body). Instead, they’re molecules that transfer immune memory and knowledge from one entity to another, and are part of a ground-breaking approach to immune system support.*

What research has been done on transfer factors?

In the decades since Dr. Lawrence’s pioneering work on transfer factors, researchers and institutions have spent an estimated $40 million studying transfer factors and have published hundreds of scientific papers documenting the ways in which they impact the immune system.

An independent study reported that 4Life Transfer Factor® Tri-Factor® Formula and 4Life® Transfer Factor Plus® Tri-Factor® Formula boost natural killer cell activity by up to 283% and 437% respectively.*1

When were transfer factors discovered?

TF03_Img In 1949, Dr. H. Sherwood Lawrence, a New York University immunologist, determined that an immune system response could be transferred from a donor to a recipient through a white blood cell extract. He concluded that these extracts contained a “factor” capable of transferring the donor’s immunity information to the recipient. Dr. Lawrence subsequently coined the term “transfer factor.”

In 1998, 4Life® Founders David and Bianca Lisonbee licensed the patent to extract transfer factors from cow colostrum. The introduction of 4Life Transfer Factor® Classic opened the door to a new category of immune system support products. 4Life’s commitment to transfer factor research has progressively raised the standard for modern-day immune system supplementation.

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:

1. Recognize. Transfer factors help immune cells quickly identify invading threats.
2. Respond. Transfer factors help speed up the immune system’s response to a potential threat after it’s been identified.
3. Remember. Transfer factors lend a hand in remembering the specific makeup of the threats your immune system encounters, so the next time it’s encountered, your body knows exactly what it is and how to combat it.*
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 can 4Life Transfer Factor support healthy energy levels?  4Life Transfer Factor supports healthy energy levels by promoting the effectiveness of your immune system.* When your immune system is working as it should, you have plenty of energy to do the things you love. Plus, the more energy you have, the faster your body responds to new threats.
If I eat healthy foods, why do I need 4Life Transfer Factor?  Healthy foods provide your body with important nutrients that provide strength. Immune cells need this nutrition, but they also need education. 4Life Transfer Factor provides information to help immune cells know how to keep your immune system running at peak performance.*

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.

I don’t like swallowing capsules. How else can I take 4Life Transfer Factor?  4Life Transfer Factor comes in a variety of delivery systems to make daily immune system support easy. Whichever supplementation method you prefer, 4Life has a product for you. 4Life sprays, liquid supplements, gels, powder packs, chewable tablets, capsules, and topical products combine natural ingredients with patented 4Life Transfer Factor technology.
