A Strong Functioning Immune System Means a Healthy Horse

Updated: Nov 1, 2019

Most don’t give the Immune System a second thought until a problem arises. Massively efficient and complex, the immune system is designed to protect the horse from a myriad of potential dangers, ranging from bacteria, viruses, toxins and a host of environmental threats.


The Immune System is our natural defense against everything in our environment. A decline in immune function, leads to greater vulnerability to illness and infection.


One of the biggest risks to your horses immune system is stress. Stress, whether physical or mental, weakens the immune system. You may be thinking, great, my horse doesn’t have stress. Not so fast...just living creates stress, especially these days. Most are aware of common stressors, things like, travel, workload/training, competition and illness. What people aren't aware of is that even the “backyard” horse who is only used for pleasure and goes on occasional trail rides is also dealing with stress.

Things that can cause stress consist of, turnout with new horses, being stalled/confined in a small space more often than not, if your horse is bullied by a more dominant horse or pasture mate, not being able to mingle or have contact with other horses (horses are herd animals), change in routine, not being fed consistently or as nature intended (constant grazing/eating 24/7).


Weather changes can also stress your horses immune system. Being exposed to weather extremes. Extreme heat can often highlight a problem that was brewing. Horses tend to tolerate cold better than heat, but cold and wet together is not a good combination without sufficient shelter. A topic to dig into another time.


People don’t realize that their horses are stressed, because they can be very stoic, they don’t show it outwardly because they are prey animals, and in the wild if they let their weakness be known, they would be an easy target.


How do you support your horse’s Natural Defense, The Immune System?



In today's world it isn’t enough to eat healthy and exercise. With exposure to threats in every walk of life, the immune system is constantly being challenged by invaders. It must be vigilant in order to remain healthy. Transfer Factor products are designed specifically for our time, to support the immune system in a specific and unique way.





What are Transfer Factors?

Unlike common supplements you find in every health food store, Transfer Factors aren’t vitamins, minerals, or herbs (substances that add nutrients to your body). Instead, they’re molecules that transfer immune memory and knowledge from one entity to another, and are part of a ground-breaking approach to immune system support. Discovered over 50 years ago.


How does 4Life Transfer Factor support the immune system?

Transfer factors are some of the most unique molecules in your body. They carry important messages to immune cells. Transfer factors help the immune system to.


How is 4Life Transfer Factor different from other products?

Today, almost all immune system products on the market (vitamins, minerals, and herbs) have one thing in common: they provide temporary nutrition. However, the best long-term solution for an active, balanced immune system response is information. 4Life Transfer Factor works with your body's immune system in a unique way. It teaches your immune system to recognize, respond to, and remember potential invaders.

Looking beyond simple nutrition to providing vital information is a profound paradigm shift, and only 4Life Transfer Factor products leverage this innovative approach.


If I eat healthy foods, why do I need 4Life Transfer Factor?

Healthy foods provide your body with important nutrients that provide strength. Immune cells need this nutrition, but they also need education. 4Life Transfer Factor provides information to help immune cells know how to keep your immune system running at peak performance.


Malik and I have been consumers of Transfer Factor for 12 years and going strong. This is one product I will always have in my barn for Malik, and in my kitchen for me! I can only speak of my personal experience with my own horse in this blog post. Because I board Malik, we come into contact with many ailments that plague the horse world. Things like strangles, pigeon fever, scratches, and many bacteria and viruses. I attribute this product to not contracting these things when everyone else does. A strong functioning Immune System means a healthy horse!
