How Peptides Can Strengthen Immune
Peptides contain several potentials that can strengthen the immune system and improve the body’s overall health condition.
One of the functions of peptides is to help the body fight external attacks on the immune system. Each and every day, we expose our bodies to various biological and environmental hazards that can affect our health. Our exposure to different foods, stress, emissions, hazardous waste, and other potential physical conditions can weaken the immune system, especially as we age.
Peptides can boost your immune system and overall health.
Many clinical studies have shown how peptides function as immunomodulating agents. Immunomodulating agents are substances that can suppress or stimulate the immune system and may help combat cancer, infection, or other diseases.
Within our bodies are natural killer cells (also known as NK cells, K cells, and killer cells). They are a type of lymphocyte (a white blood cell) and a component of the innate immune system. Peptides, such as Thymosin Alpha-1, have a primary function to regulate the production of T cells, which is an integral part of the immune system. Peptides can enhance the natural killer system and stimulate the immune response by stimulating stem cells and augmenting the production of new immune cells. With this activation, all cells are coordinating to kill bacterial, fungal, or viral infections as well as tumor cells. It improves the response to vaccines by stimulating antibody production.
When your body is armed with peptides, they act to stop the immune response or cause the immune response to generate tolerance. In essence, they are focused on improving the immune system, and essentially finding invaders that are trying to attack to provide a stronger defense against these invaders.
Thymosin Alpha-1 (Ta1)
Thymosin Alpha-1 is a peptide or a small protein, produced naturally by the thymus gland. This peptide is made up of 28 amino acids that has been found to regulate immune function. The thymus is where immune cells known as T cells mature and are released when prompted to do so by the T α 1 peptide. T cell production and action within the body is vital to adaptive immunity. This is the mode by which immune cells are able to recognize and kill foreign invaders. Specifically, T α 1 has been shown to enhance the function of certain immune cells called T and dendritic cells. These white blood cells play pivotal roles in the body’s defense process to anyone with a depressed immune system or suffering from an infection.
It is an FDA approved medication that is widely used in multiple types of cancer and viral illnesses.
Benefits of Thymosin Alpha-1
- Enhances the function of certain immune cells called T and dendritic cells
- Suppresses tumor growth
- Exhibits antibacterial and antifungal properties
- Help eradicate the unhealthy cells and stop the infection or cancer growth
- Increases vaccine effectiveness
Protects against oxidative damage
Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus. Its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an important part of the immune system. The predominant form of Thymosin is Thymosin Beta-4, In addition to its role in the immune system, Thymosin Beta-4 plays a role in tissue repair. Thymosin Beta-4 has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. The gene for Thymosin Beta 4 has also been found to be one of the first to be upregulated after injuries.
TB-4 is often prescribed for post-surgical healing, acute injury and aging athletes.
Benefits of Thymosin Beta-4
- Encourages the growth of new blood cells in tissue
- Increased endurance and strength
- Prevents the formation of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons, and ligaments
- Calms muscle spasm
- Improved muscle tone
- Increased exchange of substances between cells
- Encourages tissue repair
- Stretches connective tissue
- Helps maintain flexibility
- Reduced inflammation of tissue in joints
BPC-157 or Body Protection Compound has therapeutic applications in systemic diseases that affect the whole gastrointestinal tract, such as inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and “leaky gut” syndrome. The “gut”, is one of the most complex areas of your body and has a tremendous impact on your overall body and health. A healthy immune system, therefore, can start in the gut.
It is important to note that BPC has no direct effects whatsoever. All of the tissue healing effects come from signaling your body to perform natural tasks that it has been designed to do! BPC-157 comes in both oral and injection forms and is prescribed by a medical practitioner.
If your immune system weakens, it essentially is ineffective in protecting the body as a whole. A weak immune system will lack the required functions to fight pathogens that enter and attack the body. The results are evident in several areas both physically and mentally and can include:
Inflammation of the body’s internal organs, cold’s, flu, allergies, inability to fight common viruses, blood disorders or abnormalities, autoimmune disorders, loss of appetite, digestive problems, and abdominal cramping or GI issues. This can lead to poor overall well-being, frequent sickness, and a long recovery process.
Benefits of BPC-157
- Improves digestive function
- Protects and heals inflamed intestinal epithelium (leaky gut)
- Protects liver from toxic insults (alcohol, antibiotics, etc.) and promotes healing
- It has also been shown to help in Inflammatory bowel disease
- Accelerated wound healing (muscle, ligament, tendon, nerve)
- BPC-157 increases growth hormone receptors
- Has been shown to decrease pain in damaged areas
- Promotes the outgrowth of tendon fibroblasts, cell survival under stress, and the migration of tendon fibroblasts
BUild YOUR defenses
Is a dietary supplement with Vitamins A, D and K2 (as MK-7)
Is a fat-soluble vitamin with multiple functions in the body. It is required for normal development, growth and maintenance of the skeleton throughout life. Vitamin A supports the number and activity of osteoclast cells which break down bone tissue, an ongoing process of skeletal maintenance called bone remodeling.
(Cholecalciferol) is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for maintaining normal calcium metabolism. It supports calcium absorption in the gut and helps maintain adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone.
Known as menaquinone (MK- 7) is the form that has been shown to support normal bone formation.

In Times of Change
The reality of the Corona Virus Covid-19 has caused a lot of fear and a feeling of helplessness amongst the world. Here in the USA, we are learning to adapt to the changes upon us. Unfortunately, the reality is that other than preventative measures such as social distancing, frequently washing our hands, performing the best hygiene practices and generally trying to avoid exposure, there is not much we can do. It only makes sense that we should boost our immune system so that we can improve our chances to fight off disease.
