4Life Research brings you TF for Pets

Transfer Factor; "Designed by the immune system, for the immune system."

Transer Factor Pets is the Ultimate Immune System Booster for animals
A Major Breakthrough in Health Care and Prevention for your Pets

Transfer Factor Plus for PetsThis is truly the missing link in the nutritional approach to preventive medicine for pets. It is a powerful immune system activator that has the ability to boost the immune system in an entirely different way. They strengthen an underachieving immune system or bring the overactive immune system into balance. Dr. Joe Ramaekers, DVM  

Transfer Factor Plus is the most advanced immune support supplement ever formulated for animals (and people).  These high-quality Human Grade ingredients provide triple strength protection with Transfer Factor XF, ThyRx, and Cordyvant.  This powerful and proprietary blend of ingredients works together to activate and enhance the immune system's ability to respond to the many pathogens your pet comes in contact with. In many ways, our pets face even more health challenges than we do, because they come in contact with a less clean environment than humans, and are therefore more susceptible to many other pathogens.  Because of this, it is much more important to provide them with the immune support that keeps them healthy and happy.

Boost Your Pets Immune IQ

Transfer Factor can result in UNPRECEDENTED HEALTH BENEFITS that were previously unavailable in Veterinary medicine.

Key Points

• Transfer Factor Plus: This proprietary blend of immune enhancing ingredients features patented Transfer Factor XF, the immune system messenger that transfers critical immune information to mammals, along with other powerful ingredients such as ThymuPro and Cordyvant for superior immune strength.

Animals have unique demands upon their immune system. They are exposed to many different types of germs and microbial threats, such as impure drinking water, or even contact with other animals and rodents. They are under frequent contact with threats to their immune systems. Supporting their needs with Transfer Factor Plus will provide the power needed for optimum health.

What are transfer factors and how do they work? 

Transfer Factor Canine as well as the Transfer Factor Feline are a safe substance for all animals.  Transfer factors are the primary communications mechanism used by the immune system to defend your pet against harmful microbial threats.  Transfer factors are small molecules that consist of specific sequences of amino acids.  These small compounds naturally occur in all mammals and are passed from mother to newborn through the mother's first milk called colostrum.  These small transfer factor molecules then start to educate the newborn's naive immune system, which in turn will protect them from the microbial threats they encounter all their life.

Transfer factors have three primary functions.  When we encounter a potential microbial threat transfer factors: 1) recognize and alert our immune system to the "threat"
2) condition our immune system to respond quickly to "threats"
3) remember the threats we encounter to quickly respond in the future.

It is the identification process of the immune system that is so critical. If your body can identify a pathogen quickly, it can mount a response against it quickly. By transferring information from cell to cell, transfer factors serve as "teachers" of new cells, thereby ensuring a stronger immune system capable of withstanding our often harsh environment.

Key Components in Transfer Factor Products

This is 4Life's original proprietary extract of transfer factors. Derived from bovine colostrum, transfer factors are immune system molecules that contain the intelligence codes for immune recognition and balance.  They literally transfer immunity across species from a competent host to a recipient.

ThymuPro- Thymus Complex Containing Thymus Protein and other Proteinaceous Compounds which support T-cells.

Cordyvant  Cordyvantª is a proprietary combination of glyconutrients (IP6, Beta Glucans and Aloe Vera) which support the innate immune system. In addition, glyconutrients activate white blood cells to produce antibodies without the help of T-cells.

Montmorillonite:  Montmorillonite provides a rich spectrum of essential trace minerals that activates enzymes necessary for proper digestion and energy. These trace minerals also help your pet maintain strong bones and teeth.

Brewers Yeast:   Brewers yeast contains important nutrients that help promote healthy-looking skin and coat.

Note: If your animal is sensitive or intolerant of brewers yeast, use the human formula, Transfer Factor Plus, which is yeast free. Many veterinarians recommend giving the human formula, TF Plus, to their animals. The content of the capsule can be sprinkled in the animal's food.

Transfer Factor Canine Testimonials

Subject: Dog's recovery from Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia (AIHA)
Date: Sunday, October 12, 2003
From: Dave Burrows in Eastbourne, United Kingdom
[email protected]

My dog Arnie had been given up on by the vet. He had acute anaemia caused by his white blood cells killing his red ones and quite honestly we were making arrangements for his funeral. After one week on Transfer Factor we noticed a dramatic improvement. Three months later, after finishing the entire course, Arnie is doing so well that he no longer needs Transfer Factor . He now has so much energy on his new diet (James welbeloved) that we have to restrict his intake or we could be pulling him off the ceiling. He is putting on weight steadily as is his partner Heidi, She has been on Transfer Factor also and it has cured her scaly flaky skin condition on her back.

Dr. Richard Bennett, Ph.D.  Bacterial infections, viral infections and immune system fatigue cause a host of disease problems in pets, especially in very young and older animals.  Transfer Factor Plus naturally provides full immune system power.  Transfer Factor Plus for pets is a natural and science based product for the health of all our animal friends.
Dr. Bennett is an Infectious Disease Microbiologist and Immunologist.

Dr. William Hennen, Ph.D.  "Transfer factor make up a highly concentrated immune messaging system, designed by nature to transfer immune programming from one individual to another, both human and animal alike."   "Transfer factors are the most exciting discovery in immunology. As the 21st Century unfolds, transfer factor will be one of our greatest keys to health and well being." 
Dr. Hennen is Vice President of Research and Development at 4Life Research.

More Testimonals

Recent in vitro and in vivo studies on Transfer Factor Plus documented an increase in Natural Killer cell activity by 248% and 269% respectively, over baseline immune response. The NK cell is the animal's first line of defense against many pathogens... bacteria, viruses, parasites, and of course malignant tumor cells.

Why veterinarians and others prefer to give their pets the human formula -

Many veterinarians recommend the human formula, Transfer Factor Advanced instead of the pet formula for their sick animals. I find it is easier to give the contents of a small capsule of TF Plus, to a very sick dog or cat, especially if they have difficulty eating. The Canine and Feline Complete formulas contain yeast and some dogs have a sensitivity to yeast which may give them loose stools or cause skin inflamation.

Although Transfer Factor (Classic or Advanced Formula) and Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula are best given throughout the day, satisfactory results have been obtained by giving the dose once a day. The 4Life company recommends to double or triple these amounts to start out with, if the animal is ill; in order to increase the efficiency of the immune system further. There is no report of overdosing on TF or TF Plus even when consuming massive amounts

Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula™ increases NK cell activity by 437%.  Natural Killer cells, or NK cells, are important immune cells that provide a crucial first defense against infectious agents and diseased cells.  Once activated, NK cells react in two ways.  First, they promptly secrete chemical messenger proteins that modulate emerging immune cell responses.  Second, they become potent killers of infected cells.  Without Natural Kill cells, threatening conditions can get a strong foothold before additional immune responses are able to kick in.Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula™ increases NK cell activity by 437%.
