Thymosin Alpha 1 – 5mg (5 Vials)

What is Thymosin Alpha 1?

Thymosin Alpha 1 has a great many benefits but one of Thymosin’s finer benefits is its ability to boost your immune health. It does this through its work with killer T-cells. Among other benefits associated with Thymosin Alpha 1, you can expect to relieve Lyme disease as well as inflammation within the body. Here at Paradigm Peptides, our Thymosin Alpha 1 comes as a 10mg vial in crystalline form. Once received, you will need to reconstitute your product before use.

Thymosin Alpha 1Thymosin Alpha 1 – What You Should Know

Thymosin Alpha 1 is a peptide derived from the protein Prothymosin Alpha. Originally believed to be part of the thymic factor and hormonal maturation of T-cells, it was later found that Prothymosin was actually a protein charged with the quick reproduction in cells. However, to that same end it was discovered that if researchers and scientists only took a small fraction of the protein and created a synthetic peptide from it, the peptide would then be able to aid in the boosting of immune health. Thus, thymosin was born.

T-Cells: What Are They & Why Do They Matter?

Before we can get into how Thymosin Alpha 1 can help you, we need to understand what T-cells are and how they work within the body.

T-cells are lymphocytes, these are a type of white blood cell that is part of the immune system. They include other cells referred to as B cells and natural killer cells. They each play a major role in your body’s adaptive immune response. This is the process where your body attacks pathogens and prevents them from growing and gaining momentum within your body. The cells themselves are produced from hematopoietic stem cells which are found in our bone marrow. Once created they trek to the thymus and take up their maturation there.

But if you think there is only one form of T-cells, you are sorely mistaken. There are multiple types. However, the most common are the killer cells and helper cells. These are the cells that kill viral cells directly and foreign cells indirectly based on their use. Another common type of T-cells is the regulatory variation. This is the cell in charge of making sure that your body doesn’t attack its own cells, thinking it’s a threat. In the case where your body does attack its own cells, you more than likely have an autoimmune issue.

What Is Thymosin Alpha 1?

Thymosin Alpha 1 in its synthetic form is actually a derivative of the protein referred to as Prothymosin Alpha. This is a protein known to be highly acidic but is still widely available within the cells of mammals. Upon its finding, Prothymosin Alpha was thought to be a thymic factor and to have a role in hormonal maturation of t-lymphocytes or T-cells. As time passed and studies on Prothymosin Alpha occurred, the protein was found to have more of a role in the quick reproduction of cells instead.

How does Thymosin tie into all of this? Well, it is actually the first fraction of Prothymosin Alpha that makes up the synthetic peptide. In the 28 amino acid peptide, researchers found that in this form it was able to help restore the immune system.

Benefits Of Thymosin Alpha 1

Thymosin has two main areas that it helps with when it comes to your health. The first and most benefitted being the immune system. However, Thymosin Alpha 1 also has the ability to help with inflammation to an extent as well. Thymosin is said to have somewhat of a pleiotropic effect. This is when one substance has the ability to influence another. It’s able to do its work by essentially working with our body’s T-cells and the maturation of the killer variation of this specific cell type. How so? Well, Thymosin Alpha 1 is able to aid in the stimulation of cytokine process.

Additional Thymosin Benefits:

  • Treatment for Lyme Disease
  • Boosts Immune Health
  • Aids in Inflammation Reduction

Thymosin Alpha 1 Side Effects

Most side effects associated with Thymosin have more to deal with the injection site itself and in most cases, they subside with time. Some things you may experience include redness, swelling, or irritation at the injection site. Again, this is common especially when first starting a new compound. However, if these symptoms persist or get worse, you will want to speak with your doctor.

Thymosin Alpha 1 Applications:
