Thymosin alpha 1 peptide is an immune-boosting medication that can improve your body’s ability to fight disease. It stimulates the production of helper T cells that hunt for and destroy bacteria, viruses, and other threats to your health.
Ta1 is a powerful peptide produced by the thymus gland, a vital part of your immune system. It helps your body produce more T cells to fight infections, as well as reduce inflammation associated with chronic diseases.
It has been used to treat a number of conditions, including Hepatitis B and C and immunodeficiency diseases. It also alleviates symptoms of Lyme disease and chronic fatigue.
Your doctor may recommend a course of thymosin alpha 1 therapy, along with other peptides that work best for you. Your treatment plan can include a combination of medications and changes to your daily routine, such as diet and exercise.
You can get thymosin alpha 1 by subcutaneous injection to a fleshy area, typically the stomach or abdomen. You should use a clean, sterile syringe to administer the medication.
You might experience redness and pain at the injection site or muscle atrophy. However, these side effects are rare and are not likely to be serious.
Increasing your Thymosin Alpha-1 level
Your level of this peptide changes as you age. People who have autoimmune disorders or who are fighting off illness often have lower levels of Thymosin Alpha 1.
A thymus gland biopsy or blood test can tell your doctor about your thymosin alpha 1 levels. If they are low, your doctor can prescribe an increased dose of thymosin alpha 1 to boost your immune response and fight infection or disease.
