Explanation of transfer factors
Have you ever wondered how many components of your body and immune systemknow what to do and when to do it?
When a bacterium, virus or fungus enters your body, dozens of immune system cells, molecules and body chemicals move into action and work to together to defeat the invader or kill a mutated cell thathas become cancer. Once the battle with the pathogens is being won, this army of immune systemcomponents knows to quiet down and decrease activity. If they didn’t you could develop anautoimmune condition such as lupus, MS, diabetes type 1, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis or oneof more than one hundred other autoimmune conditions.Your immune system has smart cells or smart molecules that regulate all of this activity. One class of these smart peptides is called transfer factor. You have millions of transfer factors in your body rightnow. Without these regulators, your immune system would be chaotic and less effective. Transfer factors move throughout the body in a soup or team of communication molecules. Transfer factors belong to a class of immune system molecules called cytokines. Cytokines are communicationmolecules. A great deal of communication takes place within your immune system at all times.
Memory Molecules
Transfer factors also store information about the activities of your immune system. For example, if you had chicken pox as a child you are unlikely to develop this condition again. Why? Chicken poxgerms enter your body off and on throughout your life. The reason you do not develop chicken poxagain is that your immune system remembers the characteristics of the germ and how it was defeated.This information is stored in a number of immune system components such as antibodies and transfer factors. Transfer factors are more sophisticated and have a broader range of influence than doantibodies. When your body is attacked or cells mutate, transfer factors regulate a host of immunesystem components to move into the battle. Once the battle is over, there is a feedback function withinthe transfer factor soup that alerts the transfer factors that they need to down-regulate the activity.
Recognition and Modulation
Another benefit of the recognition properties of transfer factors is in the case of allergies. An agent thatcauses allergies should pass through your body without triggering an immune system response. Whenthe recognition function of the immune system does note recognize the dust or pollen as an innocentfactor, it attacks it and secretes histamine and other inflammatory agents. Transfer factors assist theimmune system in recognizing threats and then can up-regulate its activities or down-regulate itsactivities. They modulate the immune system. Transfer factors influence the activities of a greatnumber of immune system components such as natural killer cells, T-killer cells, macrophages,monocytes, interferon, a number of interluekins, etc. Some of these cytokines involved ininflammation are regulated by transfer factors. When your transfer factors do not recognize a problem,you get ill with such things as a cold, flu, infection, hepatitis, herpes, allergies, MS, rheumatoidarthritis, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and many other illnesses.Due to stress, pollution, pesticides, poor diet, genetic factors, mutating germs, etc., your natural bodytransfer factors do not do the job that they were created to do. What is the difference between a personwho develops cancer and one who doesn’t? What is the difference when one person in a familydevelops the flu but another doesn’t? Why do some people develop heart disease but others livingalmost exactly the same don’t? The difference is in the immune system.
 
Scientists in Japan recently conducted a major study of individuals who had low natural killer cellactivity. Those that were low in natural killer cell activity developed cancer at a greater rate thanindividuals with a higher level of natural killer cell activity. The immune system makes all thedifference!
Your Immune System - A Priority System
The immune system even affects your energy levels. The immune system is the #1 priority system inyour body. Why? Because it fights for your life every day. A simple cold germ could multiply until itkilled you if your immune system didn’t stop it. Germs enter your body several times per day. Any oneof them could kill you. Your body is constantly under attack from free radicals that mutate cells.Macrophages seek out these mutating cells and kill them. Once the macrophage kills the cell, itsecretes a chemical that creates a fibroblast, which is very important to the birth of a new cell.Since the immune system is the priority system, it gets your body resources first when you are under attack. Think about how you feel when you are ill. The majority of how you feel isn’t from the germ inyour body; it is from the reaction of your immune system. Your immune system uses vitamins,minerals, cellular energy, oxygen, hormones, and many of the other body resources. When your bodyis under attack, the immune system drains the rest of your body of these resources causing you to feeltired and weak.Even a healthy person needs outside assistance to help his immune system, which is constantlyworking hard to keep the individual healthy. Consider this. The immune system should function at 60-70% of its capacity so that when a germ enters the body or cells mutate, it can increase its activityquickly to defeat the threat. When the immune system is working at 90-100% of its capacity becauseof stress, pollution or some other reason, other systems will suffer and you may develop a healthcondition or experience premature aging.Transfer factors are very central to all of this activity. Transfer factors are even involved in the level of antioxidants in your body and within your cells such as glutathione, catalase, and ascorbic acid. Your own natural transfer factors are involved in your body’s level of glutathione-S-transferase, the primarydetoxification agent in your cells.
Transfer Factors versus Regular Nutrients
Transfer factors work completely differently in your body than nutrients. Each nutrient has a narrowrange of function in the immune system. Nutrients can nourish immune system components, act as acatalyst and turn on certain receptors in immune system cells. Transfer factors regulate all of theseimmune system components. The influence of transfer factors on a particular immune systemcomponent is many times greater than any nutrient. Transfer factors, as smart cells, have feedback functions that nutrients do not have. Transfer factors actually enhance the efficiency of nutrients.
You Have Transfer Factors in Your Body Now, Why Consume More?
Our transfer factors have been conditioned over hundreds and even thousands of years to deal with theenvironment. Modern society developed over the past hundred years; before this, your immune systemdidn’t have to deal with the magnitude of pollution and stress. There were no pesticides and growthhormones in and on our food. We didn’t have fast foods with tons of sugar and trans-fats. Societywasn’t as stressful as our immune system was developed. Hunting animals for food, as our forefathersdid, was far different than today’s world of financial problems, relationship challenges, and attacksagainst our self-esteem. In response to stress, our bodies pump cortisol into our systems, whichsuppresses our immune systems.
 
Modern travel has also created a problem for our immune systems. The immune systems of localnatives had only the local germ species to deal with. Their immune systems were conditioned tohandle the local types of germs. Now we travel around the world within hours, transporting foreigngerms into local populations. The immune system is overwhelmed with invaders that it is not familiar with.
The History of Transfer Factors
Our immune systems require assistance to deal with all of these new threats. This is where 4LifeResearch’s Tri-Factor with NanoFactor comes into the picture. In 1949, Dr. Lawrence discovered thatwhen you transfer blood to another person, some of the donor’s immunity is transferred to thereceiving person. From this discovery, research began its journey through the 1950s, 1960s, and1970s. Scientists believed they had found that ultimate immune system and health enhancer. They believed that transfer factors would be the ultimate natural medicine. As technology increased, moreand more was learned about the benefits of transfer factors. More than 3500 studies were conductedand $40 million (USA) was invested into research. Scientists from more than 60 countries wereinvolved in this research. Two developments stopped this progress. First was the development of antibiotics. Antibiotics were inexpensive to manufacture. They were effective. Antibiotics took theshow.Another development was the contamination of the world’s blood supply by HIV and hepatitis C virus.Up until this time, the only known source of transfer factors was derived from blood. Researchstopped in its tracks.In 1986, two hog scientists discovered that mothers passed down their transfer factors to their babiesthrough the placenta and colostrum in order to give the baby’s immune system a chance to survive ahostile environment of pathogens. These scientists found the cows did the same thing. Often calveswill not survive if for some reason they do not receive the colostrum from the mother. Research beganto move forward again. Antibiotics still reigned as king in the medical world. Many scientists thatworked with transfer factors derived from blood didn’t think transfer factors from colostrum wouldwork, so they didn’t enter the research.Three events in history changed all of this. First, technology advanced. Secondly, germs began to become resistant to antibiotics. Third, 4Life Research created a large consumer base from which theyderived a great deal of information about how transfer factors affected the health and immune systemsof more than a million customers. Now research is exploding!Every year and sometimes every month, something new is discovered about the effectiveness androles of transfer factors. 4Life Research first brought a line of Transfer Factor products to the marketthat contained transfer factors from cow colostrum. Next, our in-house scientists discovered that eggscontained transfer factors and the combination of the two increases their effectiveness by 185%.Transfer factors from colostrum and eggs were found to be actually superior to transfer factors fromhumans because animals are exposed to many more species of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Animalslive in the wild while humans try to keep sterile. Animal transfer factors have hundreds of years of more exposure creating a more functional transfer factor.
4Life Transfer Factor’s Effect on the Human Immune System
As technology increased, the discoveries by the scientists at 4Life Research continued. Research hasfound that 4Life Research’s Transfer Factor containing both the bovine and eggs transfer factors canincrease the effectiveness of natural killer cells by 437%! 4Life’s Transfer Factor product in one studyreduced oxidation by 35-43% at the cellular level. No antioxidant known to man can do this andtransfer factors are not even antioxidants. Transfer factors achieve this through their regulatoryfunctions. This study found that there was an increase in the availability of the body’s antioxidants,
