Thymosin Alpha-1 (Tα1) is a thermostable peptide fragment composed of 28 amino acids, naturally produced by the thymus gland. It is considered as a game changer in the medical industry. Although miniscule in size, it is a significant and powerful peptide that boost and regulate immune function.
Approved by the FDA as a prescribed medication, Thymosin Alpha-1 is increasingly being used to treat viral illnesses, inflammation and tumors including but not limited to cancer, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B and C, Lyme’s disease, psoriatic and rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus. It works as an excellent immune system modulator, treating not only severe illnesses but more importantly, preventing potential illnesses and autoimmune attacks caused by infections and viruses, from starting in the first place.
Partnered with regular exercise, right food intake and general healthy lifestyle, Thymosin Alpha 1 becomes an effective medication that protects our health from illnesses and other health conditions. Previously administered as an injection, it has now become more accessible and easier to use as a nasal spray form.
By overseeing and stimulating the T cells, Thymosin Alpha-1 “scouts” inside the body by proactively detecting and eradicating foreign invasive organisms such as viruses, bacteria and unhealthy cells, which could lead to life threatening illnesses such as cancer. Once needed, the Thymosin Alpha-1 prompts the thymus gland to release fully developed T cells in order to attack foreign organisms in the body. In the process, Tα1 enhances the T cells’ function and acts as an endogenous regulator. As a result, the person’s immune system is significantly improved and strengthened.
Thymosin Alpha-1 has been administered to treat people of all ages including children and elderly. Although we all naturally produce this peptide, each person’s varying health conditions affect the levels of their Tα1 differently over time. Some people naturally reduce the production of this peptide as they age. This is the reason why older people and those who have chronic illnesses can benefit the most from this treatment.
For most people, Thymosin Alpha-1 is easy to tolerate. Major side effects have not been identified for this medication. To avoid any adverse reactions or side effects from taking place, inform your doctor regarding your current medical condition including allergies, illnesses and medications being taken as well.
Before starting with this treatment, inform your doctor regarding your existing and previously taken medications, vitamins, supplements and treatments to ensure your safety.
