Commonly Asked Questions about 4Life Transfer Factor® Innovation

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 information from one entity to another, and are part of a ground-breaking approach to supporting your well-being.


 

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 new 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 body?

Transfer factors are some of the most unique components in your body. They carry important messages. Transfer factors help the body to:

1
Recognize. Transfer factors help the body quickly identify invading threats.
2
Respond. Transfer factors help speed up the body’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 body encounters, so the next time it’s encountered, your body knows what it is and how to combat it.

How is 4Life Transfer Factor different from other products?

Transfer Factor teaches your body 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.

What studies support 4Life Transfer Factor?

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 healthful foods, why do I need 4Life Transfer Factor?

Healthy foods provide your body with important nutrients that provide strength. The body needs this nutrition, but they also need education. 4Life Transfer Factor provides information to help the body know how to keep running at peak performance.

Where does 4Life Transfer Factor come from?

Nature has perfected a way to pass immune information from mother to baby. A mother passes on vital immune system knowledge (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.*
