Transfer Factor is the smallest
molecule in colostrum. Every mother who breast-feeds
her infant passes on her own immunity - in fact she
passes on all of the information her immune system
has gained during her lifetime. This process begins
with the first milk; the pre-maternal milk called
colostrum. The most valuable of the "immunity
weapons" in colostrum are the smallest molecule
called Transfer Factors.
What does Transfer Factor do?
Boost the immune system. Transfer Factors power
up our immune system by boosting Natural Killer
(NK) cell activity. NK cells are a key part of
our body’s defense against potential threats. They seek and destroy
potential threats through direct contact.
Increase the intelligence of the immune system.
Transfer Factors raise our immune I.Q. Transfer
Factors download a ‘blueprint’ of the mother’s
immune system to the recipient. This provides
thousands of new ‘photographs’ for our immune
system to quickly recognize new threats. They
provide accurate information to build a swift
attack, cutting down the time it takes to fight
against threats. They provide immune markers to more
quickly guide T cell reactions to an invader.
Suppresses an over-active immune system. An
out-of-control immune system attacks healthy
cells. The suppressor fraction of Transfer
Factor dampens down this activity. This fraction
of Transfer Factor is particularly effective in
helping an overactive immune system ... in modulating
the immune system - and much, much more.
3. Is Transfer
Factor protected by Patent?
Yes. US Patent 4,816,563 covers the molecular
extraction of Transfer Factor from colostrum. The
Company owns the uniqueness and exclusivity in these
4. Do Health
Professional work with Transfer Factor?
Yes. There are already Health
Professionals working with Transfer Factor around
the world, including many renowned surgeons and
doctors who recommend Transfer Factor to all their
5. Where does the
colostrum come from?
From Dairy cows supplying milk to the domestic milk
market. For many years colostrum was poured to waste
- this resource is now naturally processed to give
us Transfer Factor. Of course enough colostrum is
kept to provide for the newborn calves.
6. How is Transfer
Factor extracted from colostrum?
The colostrum is collected and through a special
process of molecular filtration, everything but the
Transfer Factors are removed. They are then
naturally dried and encapsulated for daily oral use.
7. Why not just
supplement with colostrum?
Transfer Factors are non-allergenic whereas
colostrum contains many antibodies, large milk
proteins designed for the calf – primarily casein
and immunoglobulins that can cause allergic
reactions to many people. In other words, Transfer
Factor is not species-specific – it is identical in
all mammals. This means that from cow to human, the
colostrum may be different, but the transfer factors
are the same. Colostrum
also contains only random amounts of Transfer
so you would have to take about 75 times the amount
to get the same result.

10. How safe is Transfer Factor?
Transfer Factor is 100% safe, natural and completely
non-toxic. Researchers have given massive dosages to
volunteers with no negative side effects.
Transfer Factor been scientifically validated?
Transfer factors were discovered in 1949 by the
Dr. H. Sherwood Lawrence.
Since that time, world-leading scientists and physician have established the
safety and outstanding immune system support of transfer factors with valuable
medical research and hundreds of scientific papers documenting their benefits.
With the recent achievement of transfer factor extraction processes from cows
and chickens, transfer factor science has entered into an exciting new era.
have been over 3,000 scientific studies published on Transfer Factor.
Dr H Sherwood Lawrence passed away on April 5,
2004. Dr. Lawrence had a long and distinguished association with NYU School
of Medicine and Bellevue Hospital. He served as both the Associate Chair of
the Department and as Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases &
Immunology for more than 40 years. His research concentrated in immunology,
most notably in Transfer Factor. Among the numerous awards which Dr.
Lawrence received for his scientific achievements was the Solomon A. Berson
Medical Alumni Achievement Award in 1970, and. the H. Sherwood Lawrence Firm
in the NYU Department of Medicine is named in his honor. Dr. Lawrence
continued his career as a Bellevue physician, teacher, and researcher until
he was in his eighties.
12. Can anyone take
Yes – even newborns. Removal of the milk allergens
and lactose leaves the essence of the immunological
information in the form of Transfer Factor. Mammals
of all kind benefit from taking Transfer Factor.
Nature designed transfer factors especially for
infants. Pediatricians give 4Life Transfer Factor
to children. You can feel good about giving this
product to your entire family.
13. Is there research
data readily available?
Yes. As we have said, there are over 3,000 published
research papers on Transfer Factor. This research is
available in books, videos, audios and websites by
Here are a few...Medline
Transfer Factor Abstracts.
Anyone in the health industry can

14. I'm a
generally healthy person. Why do I need to take
4Life Transfer Factor?
Even when you feel
"healthy" your immune system may be working overtime
to keep you that way. You may not necessarily be
unwell, but you might feel tired, fatigued and
generally "run down". 4Life Transfer Factor can
help support your immune system when it has become
4Life Scientists have
perfected a unique and unconventional method,
according to the Transfer Factor patent, for
producing Transfer Factor XF (4Life Transfer
Factor). Unlike other spray drying processes,
Transfer Factor XF is produced under low heat and
proprietary processing techniques that ensure a high
potency product and longer shelf life.
Every batch of Transfer
Factor XF is validated for the highest activity and
quality. Transfer Factor XF is produced naturally.
No chemical additives are used during this process
so that the product stays natural, consistent and
chemical free in every batch.
