Transfer Factors found in Colostrum are the primary communications mechanism used by the immune system to defend 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.
Transfer factors have three primary functions:
- Recognize and alert our immune system to the "threat"
- Condition our immune system to respond quickly to "threats"
- Remember the threats we encounter to quickly respond in the future
Colostrum, which is naturally found in all mammals’ milk, is a known and effective immune booster. The reason is because of colostrum’s high concentration of integral immune factors known as transfer factors as well as its presence of antibodies and immunoglobins. These key factors work together to stimulate healthy cell and tissue growth and repair damage caused by disease, medications or oxidative stress.
