  A long History of Research
Since the discovery of transfer factor in 1949 (See Dr. Lawrence pdf), over 3000 papers have been written about it and can be found in the medical literature. Over $40 Million has been spent on research throughout the world. One important example is this 1999 study “25 Years of Clinical Experience With Transfer Factor” from the University of Bologna, Italy. This document is a testament to the long-term safety of "Transfer Factor" usage. Their studies were done using Transfer Factor extracted from blood, and smaller amounts were used as it was both risky and expensive — but still very effective. At about that same time, scientists and doctors in the US began using Transfer Factor extracted from cow colostrum and chicken egg yolks.

  Transfer Factor BASICS™ Product information sheet PDF
  Ingredients:
   
 

IF+F™ is a proprietary blend of highly beneficial bovine colostral extracts (including transfer factor, proline-rich polypeptides, lactoferrin, growth factors), and bovine thymus gland. This component is for your immune system like a state-of-the-art instruction manual, plus graduate education, plus front-line tutoring from immune cell to immune cell.

   
 

Transfer Factor is a scientifically proven means of immune communication at the cellular level. Produced by the immune system, it is naturally designed to transfer highly concentrated, easily usable immune intelligence from one immune system to another, as from human mother to baby through her colostrum or “first milk.”

Proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) are another class of small colostrum-derived proteins that have ability to modulate certain immune processes.

Lactoferrin (LF) belongs to the family of iron-binding proteins. The LF found in the colostrum (first milk) of mammals offers many significant cross-species benefits.

Thymus gland extracts support the vital function of the thymus gland, which plays a critical role of preparing numerous immune cells for their functions in protecting and maintaining health.

Growth Factors, derived from colostrum, support multiple regenerative effects that extend to: 1) all structural body cells; 2) the gut; 3) muscle and cartilage repair; and 4) promotion of wound healing.

HLMO is a proprietary blend of Galacto-oligosaccharides, Lactulose and Fucoidan.

 

 

 

Xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) are prebiotics, ([non-digestible] dietary ingredients that pass unaltered into the lower GI tract and beneficially affect the host in many health-supporting ways. These include selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or more beneficial bacteria in the colon, decreasing the potentially harmful bacteria, supporting the gut epithelial and mucosal health, lowering intestinal pH, promoting normalization of bowel movements, and supporting numerous added general health benefits.

Galacto-oligosaccharides (Galacto-oligosaccharides; GOS) are non-digestible polysaccharides composed of 3-10 molecules of galactose and glucose. They are derived from lactose (milk sugar) and/or lactulose and are well recognized "prebiotics" that effect:
1) significant increase in the numbers of benefical bacteria, while 2) hindering or decreasing existing harmful bacteria.

Fucoidan, a fucose-containing sulfated poly-saccharide derived from brown seaweeds, provides exceptional health-enhancing bioactive properties. The oligosaccharide in fucoidan has been shown to provide benefits comparable to those of human oligosaccharides. It has been referred to as the "Milk of the Sea" in part because its healing properties include those comparable to human milk.

  AgariCeps™ Extract Blend is an ALL-ORGANIC proprietary blend of mushroom extracts selected for their exceptional biological potency. Mushrooms have been used to support healthy immune function for centuries by the Chinese, and in the late 1960s Western scientists joined those from the East in researching the mechanisms of mushrooms’ apparent benefits. This resulted in growing scientific evidence demonstrating their wide-ranging beneficial effects for human health.
