What is Thymosin Alpha-1?
Thymosin Alpha-1 is a major component of Thymosin Fraction 5 found in the thymus. The thymus is responsible for regulating the immune system. Thymosin Alpha-1 is prescribed to optimize the performance of your immune health and improve general wellness by preventing infections such as the common cold or the flu. It acts to augment T-cell function; T-cells are a part of the adaptive immune system which fights off infection.
How does Thymosin Alpha-1 work?
T-cells come in two forms: killer and helper cells. Killer T-cells are responsible for hunting down and destroying our body’s own cells that are cancerous or infected with bacteria or viruses. TA1 is thought to modulate the immune system by augmenting T-cell function. TA1 may affect thymocytes by stimulating their differentiation or by converting them to active T-cells.
