Reports of human use of thymosin dates back as far as 1974 – when a young girl became the first person to receive injections of thymosin because she was diagnosed without a functioning thymus gland.
TB-500 has been shown to offer many of the same effects of growth hormone (GH), including:
-Increasing strength through muscle growth
-Speeding up the healing process for wounds
-Reducing acute/chronic pain and/or inflammation
-Increasing hair growth
So, how does this stuff work?
The main functionality of TB500 hinges on the ability to upregulate cell building proteins such as actin, which is a protein that forms (together with myosin) the contractile filaments of muscle cells, and is also involved in motion and metabolism in many other types of cells.. Upregulation of actin allows TB500 to promote healing, cell growth, cell migration and cell proliferation. This not only helps build new blood vessel pathways but also upregulates the type of “good” inflammation that is directly correlated with faster wound healing.
Due to its molecular structure and low molecular weight, TB-500 is very versatile, mobile and possesses the ability to travel long distances through tissues. This means that when targeting injured areas (chronic or acute), TB-500 has the ability to circulate through the body and “find” those areas of injury in order to enhance the healing or growth process. Many users have also noted the added benefits of improved flexibility, reduced inflammation in tendons, re-growth of lost hair, and darkening of grayed hair.
Currently, studies are also being conducted on the ability of TB-500 to heal damaged heart tissue, including “athlete’s heart”, also known as ventricular hypertrophy.
In the past, TB-500 has been used extensively for race horses to prevent muscular adhesions and injuries from forming, although it is not a prescription veterinary drug, and MedivetEquine reports that TB-500 offers a variety of benefits to all mammals, regardless of size, including:
- Promotes rapid surface wound healing with little to no scarring and very little discomfort
- Heals at a cellular level, stem cells are the main ingredient to wound healing and body organ regeneration
- Assists with regeneration of blood vessels
- Has been used to improve diabetes in dogs
- Reduces inflammation of the joints
- Increases stamina levels during longer bouts of endurance
In the majority of humans who experiment with TB-500 injections, TB-500 is most often used for acute injuries or wounds that would heal slow (when you need them to heal fast), or for more chronic injuries where the healing doesn’t seem to be happening.
