How does Thymosin Alpha 1 work? 

Thymosin Alpha 1 (TA1) is naturally produced in your thymus gland and creates disease-fighting T-cells for your immune system. As you age, thymosin production decreases, making you more vulnerable to infections, autoimmune diseases, and inflammation—that’s where TA1 peptide therapy comes in. 

TA1 is an “immune-enhancing” peptide and offers proven benefits including:

  • Exhibits antibacterial and antifungal properties
  • Increases vaccine effectiveness
  • Enhances the function of certain immune cells
  • Helps eradicate the unhealthy cells and stop infection or cancer growth
  • Strengthens the immune system

💡Note: You will need a prescription to receive TA1 peptides. If you’re in the Cincinnati area, our team at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates can determine whether TA1 is right for you and help you begin treatment.
