Transfer Factor 4Life

The Battle Inside our Body

Our body is composed of roughly 37 trillion cells. From time to time cells die and replenished with new ones. But did you know that we have ten times more bacterial cells than our own cells? Most of them respect boundaries and are harmless. When others become unruly and invade our cells, our body fights back by sending soldier cells or T cells. Then the battle begins. When our body’s immune system is overpowered by the bacteria, that’s the time we take antibiotics to help our immune system fight the invaders.

When we take antibiotics, it kills the bad and good bacteria in our gut. Antibiotics can be a blessing for preserving human health but should only be used based upon clear evidence for a bacterial cause of infection,” explains Oluf Pedersen, one of the study’s lead authors and a professor at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research. After using antibiotics, not all of the good bacteria bounce back.  It is good that we can regenerate our gut microbiota, which is important for our general health. The concern, however, relates to the potentially permanent loss of beneficial bacteria after multiple exposures to antibiotics during our lifetime.

The good bacteria aid in the digestion of the foods we eat. The trillions of good bacteria in the human gut affect our health in multiple ways including effects on immune functions and metabolism. Rich and diverse gut microbiota are considered to promote health providing the human host with many competencies to prevent chronic diseases. In contrast, poor diversity of the gut ecosystem is a characteristic feature of chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, asthma, and gut inflammatory disorders.

Alternative to Antibiotics

Our body has the ability to remember previous threats. Natural immunity is for those who got sick with measles earlier in life will be immune afterward, and they won't get it again. When we are injected with the vaccine for measles, our body produces antibodies and remember the invader. Our body can then respond and depend itself when measles attack.

Did you know that we have ten times more bacterial cells in our body than human cells? Most of these bacteria are in our digestive system. Intestinal bacteria help to digest foods that we eat. Without them, it would be hard to digest food.

The first milk in all mammalian mother called colostrum, antibodies which give passive immunity to newborn babies has been proven to contain transfer factor. Colostrum contains IgA antibodies that are transferred to the gut of the infant, providing local protection against disease-causing bacteria and viruses until the newborn can synthesize its own antibodies.

The immune system is a versatile system encompasses more than a trillion cells, weighing about 1 kg and helps in recognizing, fighting, remembering invading pathogens. Each pathogen can bring out transfer factor, at least one transfer factor is created for every piece of a pathogen that the immune system faces. Transfer factors influence the activities of various immune components and also regulate cytokines. Imbalances in the production of transfer factor lead to the development of rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, hepatitis and so on.

What is Transfer Factor?

A transfer factor is a chemical that is taken from a human or animal that has already developed protection (immunity) against a certain disease.

Transfer factor (TF) is a low-molecular-weight lymphocyte extract capable of transferring antigen-specific cell-mediated immunity (CMI) to T lymphocytes. It has been used successfully as adjuvant or primary therapy for viral, parasitic, fungal, and some bacterial infections, as well as immunodeficiency, neoplasia, allergies and autoimmune diseases.

In simple words, transfer factor will allow us to get the same immunity from human or animal donors. The infant gets the same immunity through colostrum from the mother.

The life we are living must be healthy as long as we are. Our immune system gets activated only when we are exposed to infection. The greater the exposure, the better is the immunity. The molecule transfer factor is an immune-enhancing molecule produced naturally by our immune system aiding immunological memory of the recipient. It is not a drug or vitamin to cure our illness but it acts as a channel to our immune system. So, a balanced immune system is attained. Even though they found to be useful, the success rate varies depending upon the preparation of transfer factor, the right dose selected, the potency, the degree of illness and duration of infection.

Sources of Transfer Factor

The major sources of Transfer Factor are cow’s colostrum and egg yolk.

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 nano fraction 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 nano fraction molecules can be safely transferred to humans, making cow colostrum and chicken egg yolk excellent sources for immune system support.

  1. I enjoyed reading such an interesting post on immunity. I think antibiotics were given far to freely by doctors. There seems to be more awareness now and people are becoming educated on the subject. Quality probiotics can help maintain healthy gut flora, but the transfer factor sounds very interesting. I’ll certainly take a closer look at the products you recommended.

  2. So true what you say about our immune systems being broken down with years of antibiotics and what we put our bodies through with diet and all. Good information presented here.

    But, I am a bit confused with your post, is Transfer Factor 4Life a product that you sell that I can use instead of antibiotics?

    • There are 2 ways to fight the invaders: our natural immune system and antibiotics. When we are vaccinated we get immunity from certain diseases like measles. When our body cannot fight the invaders we take antibiotics. Transfer factors are molecules from T-cells of the cow’s colostrum or chicken egg yolk. It contains immunity information from the cow or chicken. When we take the transfer factors, the immunity acquired by the donor cow or chicken is transferred to our immune system. In this process, the transfer factor empowers our immune system enabling our body to recognize, fight, and remember the invaders. Transfer factor boosts and balances our immune system. The immunity acquired by cow and chicken are transferred to our system and we become protected from invaders.

  3. Great article. Much information and some of them I did not even know.
    We need to take a good care of our body and mind. Health is everything and if we don´t have health, we have nothing.
    I myself am eating a lot of vegetables, fruit and taking some supplements which are good for immune system.
    Thumbs up.

    • Balanced diet and exercise have a great role in our overall health. But we need to have a strong immune system to counter attacks from microbes and toxins. By taking transfer factors, we get the same immunity that cows and chicken have. Transfer factor can be mixed with specialized herbs to cure target diseases.

  4. I am going have to look at getting this for my wife as she suffers from some leftover cancer. We want to make sure it is all gone.

    I have never heard of Transfer Factor before, so thank you for bringing it to the forefront.

    Anything we can do to improve her immunity is good for us. Does she need her Dr. permission to use this?

    • Yes, you can ask her doctor about this. Transfer factor is a dietary supplement. You can find the full prescribing information HERE. Another sort of information about transfer factor HERE. Please have time to read these articles which are very valuable for our health.

  5. Wow, such an interesting and informative article Emilio. I have learned so much information from your article about our immune system, good and bad bacteria.
    I think these days people tend to use antibiotics too much and sometimes it’s not necessary, because like you said, our bodies are capable to fight some bacteria. I think antibiotics should be the last choice because they weaken our immune system and destroy good bacteria as well.
    I never heard of transfer factor before and didn’t know that we can improve our immune system from certain disease by using these kinds of supplements. Thank you for sharing this valuable information Emilio.

  6. Wow, I am glad I came across this article. It was indeed an eye-opener. I am definitely sharing this with others.

    Quick question, please. Can antibiotics and the transfer factor be consumed at the same time?

    • Antibiotics kill the bad and good bacteria in our gut. Transfer factor gives us the immunity acquired from cow’s colostrum and chicken’s egg yolk. It recognizes the bad bacteria from the good ones and kills them in contact. It suppresses also autoimmune diseases like psoriasis, asthma, diabetes, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. When you have a strong immune system, you don’t need antibiotics. You can try and experience the healing effect of transfer factors.

  7. A very interesting read. I didn’t realise that antibiotics killed the good bacteria as well as the bad. These days doctors give out antibiotics like sweets. Now I know that if I am offered antibiotics I will think again.

    • Hi David! You have to try transfer factor because it’s the natural way to fight invaders and toxins entering our body. It has no side effects, unlike antibiotics which can harm our microbiota.

  8. Very interesting article. I think I have heard about transfer factors before but was not really aware of what they are. I have been trying to avoid antibiotics as much as possible but when I was younger I had to take them quite often because of sinusitis. My son is now 2 years old and luckily he has never had to take antibiotics so far. Taking transfer factors to boost your immunity in a natural way sure sounds like a good option!
