Transfer Factors Common Side Effects
It is never too late to seek support for our immune system. And with today’s transferceutical advances it is even easier for us to finally have a strong and vibrant immune system. You see Transfer Factors has been described as the most promising breakthrough in health care. Nature itself gave us the key to a strong and healthy immune system.
Science did found a way for us to support our immune system daily, but with this comes the common concern with all orally taken supplements, what are the side effects?
Are There Any Side Effects That We Might Experience While Taking Transfer Factors?
When you first take Transfer Factor the initial reaction that might be experienced are similar to getting a vaccination that we have not been exposed to its pathogen yet.
This initial reaction typically includes flu-like symptoms (proportional to the severity of your illness):
- Soar Throat
- Runny Nose
- Body Aches
But fear NOT, these symptoms will go away.
Showing any of this symptoms prove that the immune system has been activated and that it’s working its magic to vanish the body’s infections.
This initial reaction is also known as Herxheimer’s reaction, meaning detoxification.
This is a positive sign and not some side effects that we should fear. What this is showing us is that the Transfer Factors have already started to kick our immune system into action and it is cleaning the body of any debris so it can protect our body from threats and intruders.
So How Safe Are Transfer Factors?
There’s been research done where huge doses of Transfer Factors have been given to volunteers, well in the attempt to trigger some kind of adverse reaction and no negative side effects were observed, even with massive doses.
Also, Transfer Factors have been consumed for many years now with no side effects reported. Even when trying to overdose no side effect has been noted.
Dr. Darryl See, MD performed an in vitro study (on cultured blood) which showed no toxicity on the blood markers when Transfer Factor was added at the amount of 2,000 times the recommended dosage.
And for the biochemistry concern, there is no problem. Molecularly the structure is exactly the same as what is in our blood. The only difference is that the 8 amino acids rearrange themselves to recognize the antigens each particular Transfer Factor has been exposed to.
Although there are no known negative side effects while taking Transfer Factors, transfer factors are immune modulators, and they are not recommended for people with transplants where there is a need for immune suppression and there are insufficient studies to know if transfer factors are beneficial or harmful during pregnancy.
