Immune Support with Thymosin Alpha-1
Thymosin alpha (Ta1) is a naturally occurring thymic peptide. It plays a key role in the control of immunity, tolerance and inflammation. It acts on the innate immune system as an endogenous regulator of both inflammatory and adaptive immune responses. Studies have shown increased natural killer cell function in immunocompromised patients such as those with auto-immune conditions or cancer. Natural killer cells engulf viruses, bacteria, fungi, and cancer cells. Ta1 treatment also leads to an increase in glutathione which has important anti-viral effects, and is a major anti-oxidant produced by the liver.
Importantly, it has also been shown that Ta1 helps in the production of regulatory T cells via IDO which leads to an inhibition of cytokine production. This dampens the immune response to prevent a proinflammatory cytokine storm.
This injection is simple and done in the comfort of your home to keep your immune system strong and balanced should you be exposed to COVID-19.
