Dear friend,

Gamma Globulin is basically the ANTIBODY that your 
body produce and release into the blood to fight 
the germs.

Our body make gamma globulin naturally.  Sometimes
the drug company buy our blood and EXTRACT the 
gamma globulin from it.  They do sell the 
gamma globulin in a bottle.

Doctors use the "bottled" gamma globulin to 
help some type of patients to develop a quick
resistant to germs.  But this "protection" 
does not last very long.

Hope my 2 cents help.
