4Life Transfer Factor Classic dosing for a 4-year-old
A question from a client: Hello, my question is about the dosage for a 4-year-old child. The child goes to kindergarten and gets cough and runny infections quite often.
At the outset, I must emphasize that 4Life Transfer Factor Classic is a dietary supplement and dietary supplements are not medicines and are not intended to treat any disease. Their task is to supplement the diet, i.e. replenish nutrients. Therefore, in the case of dietary supplements, we are not talking about "dosing". Instead, the "daily portions" are used. I must also make it clear that in the case of toddlers (1-3 years) and preschoolers (4-6 years), a paediatrician should be consulted prior to administering any new food, including dietary supplements.
Coming back to your question, the recommended daily dose of the supplement on the 4Life Transfer Factor Classic packaging is 3 capsules a day. This is the portion dedicated to healthy adults by default.
According to the current knowledge, colostrum bovinum - the only ingredient of the dietary supplement 4Life Transfer Factor Classic - is safe for supplementation in young children, even infants. However, there is no need to use the "adult" portions. Our experience shows that in the case of young children (if, of course, the doctor agrees to supplementation), you can start administering the supplement from 1 capsule. If necessary, the portion can be increased, of course by observing the effects that should be visible in the first 2 weeks of 4Life Transfer Factor Classic supplementation.
