Immune System Support

Thymosin Beta 4

Thymosin beta 4 (TB4) is the predominant form of thymosin in our bodies. It has been found in high concentrations in wound tissue and certain blood cells involved in clotting, signifying its important role in the healing process. In fact, recent studies have revealed that the first gene to be up-regulated after an injury is the TB4 gene. As the body begins the recovery process, TB4 aids in the creation of new vessels in the injured area, which carry blood, nutrients, and repairing substances to the site. TB4 also has anti-inflammatory properties, and works to decrease the amount of inflammatory substances, called cytokines. Inflammation plays a large role in many of the symptoms associated with a large number of conditions (i.e., Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, infections, etc.), making the potential impact of TB4 quite extensive.

The discovery of the role of TB4 in the process of immune regulation has lead to its use as a valuable therapeutic agent. TB4 has been used in the treatment of HIV, AIDS, Influenza, colds, and various infections. It has been utilized in the management of various inflammatory conditions, as well as part of treatment following heart attack due to its cardio and neuro-protective effects.

TB4 is very well tolerated and has not been found to cause any significant side effects. It can be taken on its own or in conjunction with an existing therapy, making it a versatile and valuable drug.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS

  • Calms muscle spasm
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Increased exchange of substances between cells
  • Encourages tissue repair
  • Stretches connective tissue
  • Helps maintain flexibility
  • Reduced inflammation of tissue in joints
  • Encourages the growth of new blood cells in tissue
  • Increased endurance and strength
  • Prevents the formation of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons, and ligaments

CONTRAINDICATIONS

None known at this time, but recommended use is short term (not intended for continuous or long-term use).

Thymosin Alpha 1 “Immune Enhancing” Peptide

Thymosin Alpha 1 naturally produced in our thymus gland. The thymus gland produces disease-fighting T cells for our immune system. As we age, our body produces less thymosin, which increases our risk of infection, autoimmune disease, and inflammation, all leading to increased risk of chronic disease.

TA1 is an “immune-enhancing” peptide.  Multiple articles have been published using both TA1 for conditions including chronic hepatitis, multiple sclerosis and cancer.  TA1 has been approved for use in over 35 countries.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS

  • 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

POTENTIAL side effects

  • Hives
  • Redness at injection site

CONTRAINDICATIONS

None known at this time

BPC 157 “The Healing” Peptide

BPC stands for “Body Protection Compound” and is found in human gastric juice.  BPC has therapeutic applications in both wound, tendon and ligament healing, as well as in treating gastric ulcers, inflammatory bowel diseases, and “leaky gut” (also called intestinal permeability, a condition in which the lining of the intestine becomes porous, allowing toxins, bacteria, viruses, yeast and food proteins to enter the body, often triggering an unwanted immune response).  Leaky gut is thought to contribute to many chronic medical conditions.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS

  • Promotes repair of tendons, ligaments, muscle, bone, intestine, and nervous system
  • Increased cellular repair and regeneration
  • Increased collagen production
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Addressing leaky gut (intestinal permeability)

potential side effects

  • Hives(allergic reaction)
  • Redness at injection site

CONTRAINDICATIONS

None known at this time.
