Commonly Asked Questions about
4Life Transfer Factor® Innovation
What are transfer factors?
Unlike many supplements you find in health food stores, transfer factors aren’t vitamins, minerals, or herbs (substances that add nutrients to your body). Transfer factors are molecules that transfer immune system memory and knowledge from one entity to another. Transfer Factor science is part of ground-breaking innovation for immune system support.
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 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 immune system?
Transfer factors are some of the most unique molecules in your body. They carry
important messages to immune system cells. Transfer factors help your immune
system do three big things:
Recognize. 4Life Transfer Factor helps immune cells quickly identify invading threats.*
Respond. 4Life Transfer Factor helps speed up the immune system’s response to a potential threat after it’s been identified.*
Remember. 4Life Transfer Factor helps your immune system remember the specific makeup of previously encountered threats, so your body knows how to combat those same threats again.*
