Thymic Protein A

      The thymus gland is the core of the human immune system. The thymus gland, which is located behind the sternum (breast bone), shrinks as we age, resulting in a decline in immune function. (5)

      In our early twenties we have an abundance of well-functioning T-cells that regulate the immune system and help the body fight off pathogens and disease. Over time, our thymus gland shrinks and the output of thymic hormones decreases significantly. It is the gradual loss of thymic hormone and functioning T-cells that is thought to be responsible for many of the age-related changes in the immune system.

      Animal extracts and synthetic thymic hormones have demonstrated the ability to dramatically reverse thymic atrophy and restore levels of immunity to much more youthful levels. Thymic extracts and thymic hormones are also among the few agents that are documented to extend the life span of experimental animals. (7)(8)

      Thymic Protein A was first discovered and isolated by Terry Beardsley, Ph.D., an immunologist and experimental biologist from Baylor College of Medicine in Texas. Dr. Beardsley is considered one of the leading experts in the world on the thymus gland. After much research Dr. Beardsley discovered a complete, biologically "intact" 500-amino chain protein that fits into the receptor sites on T-4 cells to "turn on" and program the cells for their disease-fighting functions. He named the peptide Thymic Protein A. Dr. Beardsley further developed an oral delivery system to avoid the protein degradation that occurs in the stomach. (9)(10)(12)

      Since Thymic Protein A was introduced as an oral nutritional supplement, thousands of individuals have consumed this product. Hundreds of medical doctors are using it for a variety of immune-related illnesses with no adverse reactions.

      Thymic Protein A is protein that has been formulated for effective absorption through the sublingual mucosa. Administration is by placing a packet of powder under the tongue and hold it there where it is absorbed directly into the blood stream. Dosage recommendations vary, ranging from one to two packets per week to several packets per day. The more T-cells that are functioning properly, the greater the immune response against infections and pathogenic agents. The reported benefits of Thymic Protein A include increased stamina, energy, well being and ability to ward off infections. (1)(5)(6)

      For best results, general supplementation with a complete vitamin mineral supplement is recommended. Vitamins A. and C and Zinc in particular are known for their immune system support roles.

      Dosage recommendations vary from one per week as preventive maintenance to three per day for immune compromised or ill individuals.
