In part 1 of this blog, we talked about the enormous cost of Immune System Dysfunction. But let’s look at a simple protein, one that our bodies make while we are young and diminishes as we age, that gives us the opportunity to optimize our immune system.
In the treatment of Immune Dysfunction, using thymic protein extracts has been researched since the 1970’s. Considerable proof has been found that demonstrates that thymic proteins are useful for boosting immune function related to several diseases and disorders including, chronic infections (viral and bacterial), certain types of cancers and some auto-immune disorders.
Supplementation with Thymic Proteins can be used when the body’s own defense mechanisms are attacking self-tissue. It was also discovered that repeated infections were reduced when sustained thymic proteins were use for a period of at least one year or more. The studies also confirmed that patients improved their immune parameters.
One of the most important indications for Thymic Protein A use in cancer patients, is the management of lymphopenia/leukopenia caused by chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Because of the severe drop in white blood cells, thymic protein use can bring up the white cell counts faster when they do fall or prevent dangerously low levels. Patients taking thymic protein conclude their treatment with lesser side effects than patients who do not take it.
Clinical studies have shown that Thymic Protein A is indicated in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and Scleroderma. These classic disorders occur because of an increase in antibody formation as a result of a high T-helper/T-suppressor ratio. T-helper/T-suppressor ratios were returned to normal in three months when Thymic Protein A was used in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Thymic protein use has shown significant improvements in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue, Cold and Flu, Fibromyaliga, Lupus Erythematosus, and Scleroderma.
There have been studies to determine if the use of thymic protein affects lymphocytes (T-cell), a type of white blood cell, plays in periodontal disease. Neutrophils, another type of white blood cell, have an important role fighting infection and bacterial plaque infections in the mouth. This is especially important to people who have diabetes and the geriatric population because they are the most likely to have depressed levels of neutrophils. Neutrophil growth is encouraged by lymphocytes, which are in turn encouraged by thymic proteins. Because of this relationship, lymphocytes have a major part in resisting periodontal disease, which can cause heart disease.
The bottom line is, our immune system ages over time just like the rest of our bodies. Add stress, medications, poor eating habits, environmental factors, and genetics to the mix, and it’s quite remarkable that we fend off as many illnesses as we do. However, at the source of healthy immune function we have to produce the correct cells to control inflammation and fight disease. To mature those cells, we need Thymic Protein A, which diminishes over time, as our thymic gland shrinks drastically with age.
Fortunately research has shown that supplementing thymic protein allows the immune system to mature the T-cells needed to its job. ProBoost Direct offers packets with 12 trillion molecules of Thymic Protein A.
