They are potent, safe, and specific, with little to no side effects. Peptides are essentially made of amino acids. When certain amino acids are combined, they can create different kinds of peptides.

What is Thymosin Alpha 1?

Thymosin alpha 1 (Tα1) is a powerful modulator of immunity and inflammation. Thymosin is a peptide, or small protein, produced naturally by the thymus gland. It is one of several polypeptide hormones secreted by the thymus that controls the maturation of T-cells, which actively participates in the immune response. The thymus is a critical part of your immune system, where individual T-cells are tailored to respond to the millions of bacteria, fungi, or viruses that could invade your body. It is most often given for chronic viral diseases but has also been shown to increase innate immunity factors and help fight against harmful autoimmune processes. It is given to help control inflammation associated with chronic diseases, which can cause excess fatigue.
