What is it?
Thymosin Alpha 1, often characterized as Thymosin α1, is a peptide fragment found in prothymosin alpha. Prothymosin alpha is a protein found in humans and other mammals. So far, we understand that the main function of this particular protein and its peptide fragments are to initiate the restoration of immune systems in mammals that have poorly function thymus glands. Both in animals and in humans, it’s been proven to enhance immunity but a considerable amount.
In humans and our monkey-family cousins, the thymus is a special lymphoid organ that rests between our hearts and sternums. Its main function is to enhance our immune systems by creating T cells from hematopoietic progenitor cells. Think of the thymus as your own personal center for disease control. For various reasons, the center of disease control may lose power or struggle to come up with the antibodies needed to fight off disease. That’s where the Thymosin Alpha 1 can come in and help act as a substitute for your body’s CDC.
