Re: TRANSFER FACTOR - uwagi
Podejrzewam, ze Twoje dolegliwosci z biegunka, sa zwiazane z tym, ze nie
tolerujesz laktozy ( moze to byc na wskutek braku produkcji enzymu laktazy - 30
% Polakow traci zdolnosc produkcji laktazy w wieku doroslym, albo masz pasozyty
jak lamblie w jelicie cienkim i one to utrudniaja wydzielanie laktazy).
Laktoza nie rozkladana na cukry proste gromadzi sie w jelicie cienkim i sluzy
za pozywke dla bakterii gnilnych - stad biegunka.
A Transfer Factor zawiera sladowe ilosci laktozy.
Wiec ci co nie toleruja wcale laktozy albo maja b. niski prog tolerancji
laktozy beda miec klopoty.
Podaje inf. na ten temat ze stron angielskich:
Can persons who are lactose intolerant use Transfer Factor XF?
Yes! Lactose intolerant persons can consume up to three grams of lactose
without difficulty due to colonic bacterial digestion. The amount of residual
lactose is well below these sensitivity limits.
A warning about Fraudulent Transfer Factor Preparations
Be wary of anyone selling "Transfer Factor" over the internet, especially if
they claim to have "pure TF." No one has yet purified TF. The closest anyone
has come are those few scientists deriving TF in tissue culture, from clonally-
expanded lymphoblastoid cell lines (of mammalian origin), in presence of
specific antigen. Furthermore, depending on what molecular-weight cut-off
(i.e., microfiltration pore size) is used, preparations purported to contain TF
may also contain other cytokines, especially Interleukins, Interferon-alpha, -
beta, and -gamma, and Tumor Necrosis Factor. At the very least, ask what cut-
off is used, whether the preparation has been tested for other cytokines,
whether the potency of the "TF" has been measured and if so for which specific
antigen. (If more than one, ask relative potency to each.)
Do not take TF for CFIDS unless immunologic tests have been performed to
exclude other diseases with identical symptoms, e.g. Lyme disease. Optimal
therapy for these differs from that of CFIDS; there is a different one for each
cause. Beware of physicians stating Lyme disease to be the cause of CFIDS; it
is a separate disease with specific diagnostic tests and a different therapy.
If you have adverse reactions to milk, do not take TF derived from bovine
colostrum unless lactose, casein, and cytokines have been proven to be absent;
ask for proof! Furthermore, presence of concentrated cytokines in product sold
as a nutritional is probably a violation U.S. Dietary Supplement Health
Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994, since the Act only permitted continued sale of
product as nutritional if it had been considered one prior to that time. Also
ask if person suggesting use is an M.D., and whether licensed in that state or
If anyone claims to be expert on TF, contact ITFS to see if claimant is member
thereof; and if claims to be INTERNATIONAL EXPERT, look in WHO's WHO IN
MEDICINE & HEALTHCARE, & WHO'S WHO IN THE WORLD, to verify.
Claims by various companies that their concentrated bovine colostrum
constitutes antigen-specific TF, without proof by potency assay -- or
purporting to have TF for streptococci, staphylococci, salmonella etc. -- are
bogus. Furthermore, any product claimed to treat / cure / prevent a specific
disease / virus / antigen, cannot be sold as a "nutritional" under DSHEA.
Beware any company advertising on Internet or via Emails addressed to "All
health care providers" (or using similar language) that asks reader to call a
toll-free 800 number, which responds with a lengthy recorded message. Any
company that lists an 800 number on the Web, does not answer when you call, but
asks you to leave your phone number for them to call you back, is probably
fraudulent. Suggest you call 3 times at different times of day; if you never
reach a live person, only call-back number, it is probably fraudulent.
Any company selling both "TF" and 1,3 D beta glucan is probably fraudulent.
Exorbitant claims have been made for latter; it is a yeast, very easy to buy
and encapsulate. There have been no published papers showing its efficacy in
any human disease, only in vitro studies that it boosts macrophagocytic
capacity. This will EXACERBATE autoimmune hemolytic anemia and autoimmune
thrombocytopenia! These diseases are often silent because bone marrow can
compensate for the increased destruction rate by producing these at 6-8 fold
normal; if compensation occurs, person will develop the disease; if person
already symptomatic, it will cause exacerbation.
