Transfer factors are natural, microscopic molecules present in the bodies of all animals. They are messengers that disseminate immunity information about the presence of an immune threat – external or internal – and the appropriate response from immune cell to immune cell.
What are they ?
Extracts of colostrum (breast milk), through which immunity is transferred to the child, this fact excludes its pharmacological origin as an absolutely natural product, from a biochemical point of view are chain peptides consisting of dozens of amino acids, which store all the experiences of the immune system with the ability to transfer them.
How do they work ?
They do not heal in the literal sense, but work to make the immune system “smarter” and the body itself more capable of killing.
What do you mean by that ?
Teach the cells of the immune system to recognize and eliminate certain antigens (foreign substances), forcing a specific and appropriate response to each opportunity.
What are they for ?
In a generic way to support and strengthen our immune system against the aggressions from the environment, food toxins (which we do not know).
Are there any contraindications ?
Due to their nutrient composition, their low molecular protein profile of five thousand daltons or five kilodaltons (Kda) is naturally assimilable.
EVERYTHING THAT IS A TRANSFER FACTOR:
IT’S NOT A VITAMIN, IT’S NOT A MINERAL, IT’S NOT A HERB.
The transfer factor is a vital immune factor that gives us Mother Nature. Every mother who breast-feeding her baby passes on to her immunity all the information her immune system has collected during her life. This process begins with the first milk, called colostrum or colostrum. The most valuable weapon in elcolostros are the transfer factors.

Life is a risky undertaking
In a world where stress, environmental pollution, poor nutrition and new strains of “super germs” continuously undermine people’s immune systems. 4Life recognizes the importance of innovation in nutrition. We know that continuous progress to strengthen the immune system and promote better health for you and your family must be made to meet these daily challenges and achieve overall well-being.
Transfer factors, which are among nature’s strongest forces for transmitting and maintaining good health, have taken their place at the forefront of nutrition science. Simply put, transfer factors are small molecules that transfer immunity information from one organism to another, for example when breastfeeding from mother to baby.
Transfer factors provide support that goes beyond the vitamins, minerals or herbs known today.
The main features of Transfer Factors are
– Promotes the ability of the immune system to remember past invasions so that your body can respond more quickly to similar health threats
– Train the natural immune cells about acute and potential dangers with an action plan
– Shortens the recognition phase of a health threat and thus the duration of a disease
– Promotes or balances immune response by suppressing an overactive immune system
Transfer factors are produced by lymphocytes with cell-mediated immunity function. They carry the antigen-specific, cell-mediated immunity (delayed hypersensitivity) of the stem lymphocytes to unsensitized or naive lymphocytes. They can also increase the non-antigen-specific immune stimulation activity of the recipient lymphocytes. Transfer factors transmit immunity information-detection of pathogens and appropriate immune response-with inducer, suppressor, and antigen-specific factors.
* The suppressor factor prevents an overreaction of the immune system, as well as against itself.
* The antigen-specific factor carries critical plaques used by the immune system to identify foreign microbes and cells.
Transfer factors are found in even the most primitive immune systems. Therefore, the inducing and suppressing factors of the transfer factor are universal and can transfer immunity between different species. Therefore, transfer factors of a cow can transfer immunity to a human. The antigen-specific factor can transfer immunity between different species when there is a cross between antigen-specific pathogens.
Who needs to strengthen their immune function ?
There are people who are fit, happy and strong and never get sick or at least catch a cold. They have “heroic” immune systems. But even heroes have bad days. A suppression of the immune system usually occurs with increasing age and aggravating factors. Aspects such as unhealthy nutrition, chronic stress, obesity and underlying disease all contribute to dysfunctions of the immune system. In this immunocompromised state, disease occurs and chronic infection and inflammation take a heavy toll in suffering and cost.
It is hoped that advances in immunology will provide the tools to restore the immune system to its important role.
Our knowledge of transfer factors is getting better and better and we are on the threshold of amazing possibilities.
Functioning of the natural killer cells
The NK cell is a special type of lymphocyte because, unlike the T and BL lymphocytes, it requires no preparation or training to function. The NK cell has the ability to recognize strangers. Surgically transplanted tissue is often repelled by the NK cells, unless the tissue is very compatible and certain immunosuppressive drugs are administered. A cell that has transformed incorrectly, or a cell that has been infected with something, can lose its natural character and appear foreign to the NK cell.
The NK cell patrols all the cells of the body and makes physical contact through the “NK kiss”. If the kiss indicates that the cell is okay and not alien, grace is given to the cell. If the kiss reveals that the cells are a tumor or virus infected, this was the kiss of death and the cell is destroyed by two types of toxins produced by the NK cell.
The NK cell would earlier be considered as a primitive form of immunity. Today, however, it is clear that the NK cell is the most important component of the immune system and has a great influence on many immune functions. Therefore, well-functioning NK cells play many important roles in maintaining optimal functioning of the immune system and its balance.
