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.
When were transfer factors discovered?
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:
