Transfer Factor: The Immune Connection
Transfer factors are small proteins that have the ability to express cell-mediated immunity from immune donors to non-immune recipients. Molecular Medicine, April 6, 2000.
A visit to a naturopathic physician who knew his stuff led me to an individual with an immune-enhancing compound called transfer factor. Because I agreed to give a talk on TF, I had to review the literature carefully and I became impressed by the data. Here was a natural product that not only boosted the immune system, it also calmed an over-reactive immune system often seen in people with autoimmune diseases, (something my youngest daughter struggled with).
Now, after countless hours of research and personal use, when anyone asks me about immune system boosters, my answer is always the same take transfer factor. I have used it
for years and have found that my resistance to disease has
dramatically improved. In fact, I so rarely get flu or
a cold anymore that when I encounter someone who has one, I
invariably ask them, Why are you sick? It
usually doesnt go over well, but I tell them that they
must enjoy being ill because it really isnt necessary.
What Exactly Is TF?
Transfer factor molecules are comprised of a few amino acids that act as immune messenger molecules that work in white blood cells. They are abundantly found within the colostrum of breast milk. When a mother nurses her baby,
transfer factors from her more experienced immune system
pass to her baby via the colostrum. Colostrum is rich in
immune components that pass to the newborn, affording its
more vulnerable and new immune system the advantages of a
much older, experienced one (its mother).
Moreover, this transfer of immunity to the infant confers protection on the baby until its immune system can make its own transfer factors. Transfer factors can now be extracted from cow colostrum, concentrated and offered in supplement form. These molecules are not species-specific making them cross-species compatible. While different mammals may have a unique colostrum mix, the transfer factors contained within their colostrum are the same. Transfer factors produced by a cow can work just as effectively in humans as they do in animals. The ability to receive immune data that is transferred from the cow to the human has the potential to revolutionize the way we look at immune support in
medicine. (See article: What is Transfer Factor?)
The Tri-fold Benefits of Taking TF
When you take transfer factor, you get three main benefits.
First your immune system is strengthened so that when you encounter health threats, your heightened immune cells react very rapidly. By so doing, they prevent the foreign organism from getting a toe hold; consequently, even if you do get sick, the infection will be milder.
Secondly, when you take transfer factor, you store these borrowed messenger molecules in your own immune data banks. As a result, when you are invaded by an organism that had
previously infected the cow, the acquired transfer factor
molecules stimulate your immune system to specifically recognize and react to this particular microorganism.
Third, transfer factor will help the immune system remember threats if they should return in the future.
You Can Lead A Horse to Water . . .
Informing my medical colleagues about TF along with other natural compounds like genistein, ginkgo biloba, etc., motivated me to intensely study the value of these and other alternative medicines. And, generally speaking, their reception was surprisingly warm. In other words, I was not openly rebuked. Of course, these were the same doctors I taught several of my new gynecological procedures to
(cryosurgery, colposcopy, endometrial ablation, etc.). In spite of their polite responses, and to my disappointment, none of these physicians took up transfer factor either personally or for their patients.
TF: Immune Support At It's Best
TF increases our army of natural killer cells. These remarkable cells seek and destroy potentially harmful invaders. Simply stated, the increased killer cell activity we get from taking supplemental transfer factor significantly increases our ability to stay healthy. Let me reiterate at this point that I would not presume to suggest any natural product unless it came with impressive scientific credentials, and TF does. Like genistein, TF had to win me over. Naturally, when word got out that I was interested in natural products, a number of prominent companies approached me with their line of products. Unfortunately, the science supporting many of their flagship supplements was lacking. Consequently, so was my interest.
My Introduction to 4Life Research
When I lost my original source of transfer factor to a network marketing company, I was disappointed, to say the least. I was less than enthralled with multi-level companies whose modus-operandi was often sell products at any cost and results be damned. When I met, however, with the principles of a company called 4Life Research located in
Sandy, Utah, I became impressed by their emphasis on scientific support.
Not only did they want to back transfer factor with their name and reputation, they also saw the health potential of genistein as well. After much interaction and input, I became convinced that these were people with integrity and sound scientific support for their product development. More importantly. I believed that their concern for impacting individual health was sincere.
TF Is Sophisticated Immune Support
Through a special and patented process, concentrated transfer factors can now be lifted out of cow colostrum, collected and offered in a pure and powerful concentrated extract.
Compounds That Complement TF
Whilethe immune-enhancing pathway that TF provides is unique, the addition of certain compounds can create a potent, multifaceted approach to immune defense building. The following natural substances have proven immune-boosting actions and work in tandem with the actions of TF molecules through different pathways.
Betaglucans: Betaglucans are considered the workhorse of the immune activating polysaccharides and are well absorbed when taken orally. They are currently under investigation as a supportive tool for HIV infection.
Mannans Mannans (specifically acemannan) is a carbohydrate extracted from the gel of the aloe vera leaf. It is this compound which is thought to make aloe gel so healing for burns and other skin disorders. Studies show that acemannan increases the number and killing capacity of T-lymphocytes by almost 50 percent. It also has significant
anti-tumor activity and can help prevent the replication of
health threats in the body. Acemannan is one of a few plant
extracts used in people with AIDS. Studies confirm that it
has significant value for bacterial, viral, and fungal
Glutamine: An amino acid called glutamine is important for immune system function. Liquid diets high in glutamine have been reported to help critically-ill people recover more rapidly. One double blind study giving athletes who were prone to respiratory infections glutamine reported 81% without subsequent infection compared to 49% in the placebo group.
Lactobacillus acidophilus: Helps replace friendly bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract which may help protect the body from potentially harmful organisms that reside in the intestine and can cause infection. Infectious diarrhea in children has been successfully reduced with acidophilus supplementation.
Zinc: Zinc supplements have been reported to considerable increase immune function. This effect may be especially important in the elderly who can easily become zinc deficient.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C stimulates the immune system by
enhancing interferon levels and boosting the activity of
certain immune cells. In controlled reports studying people
doing heavy exercise, cold frequency was reduced an average
of 50% with vitamin C supplements ranging from 6001,000 mg per day.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E enhances some aspects of immune cell activity especially in the elderly. A combination of
antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E significantly improved
immune cell number and activity compared to placebo in a
group of hospitalized elderly.
The Last Word on TF
Transfer factor is nothing less than an amazing natural compound that should be used by physicians everywhere. Last year alone, I flew over 200,000 miles in teaching capacities throughout the United States and Europe, and I NEVER BECAME ILL. We all know about the microbial hazards of re-circulated plane cabin air and yet here I sit, infection free. At the risk of going overboard, let me just say that I love what Transfer Factor has done for me, for my family, and for my patients.
