Thymus Gland - Immune System Support

Thymus Gland

The thymus is a small gland located behind the upper chest area, which plays a key role in proper immune functioning. This gland peaks in size at puberty, and then begins steady involution (shrinkage), until eventually it becomes incapable of producing certain proteins the immune system needs.

All white blood cells (WBC’s) originate in the bone marrow. Some cells which can mature upon their release from the marrow are termed B-cells (“B” for bone). Other WBC’s are still immature when released from the marrow, and must travel to the thymus to receive proteins for activation. These cells are termed T-cells (“T” for thymus gland).

The T-4 Helper cell is the “manager “ of the immune system. It is one kind of white blood cell that needs a thymic protein to be activated. Without a specific protein (protein A), the T-4 cell cannot function, and immune activity suffers.

ProBoost™ Thymic Protein A supplies the missing thymic protein and activates the T-4 Helper cell.

Thymic Protein A

Thymic Protein A, the active ingredient in Proboost, is an essential substance, necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system; specifically the portion named "cell-mediated immunity” which controls how viruses, bacteria, and other harmful agents are controlled and disposed of by the immune system.

Scientific studies, performed on in vitro cells, animals, and humans, have all shown significant benefits in supporting and strengthening the immune system by activating the T-4 helper cells. Reported results include increased immunity, improving sleep and energy, and restoring quality of life for ill individuals.

The thymus gland, which is the centerpiece of the immune system, gradually decreases in size and functionality beginning at age three. By age 40, the thymus gland is no longer capable of producing sufficient levels of a critical protein, thymic Protein A, needed to program T-cells to jump-start an immune response. ProBoost® was developed to meet this thymus shortfall. Thymic Protein A, the active ingredient in ProBoost®, has the same biological activity as the natural thymic protein that is produced by the thymus gland. ProBoost® helps your body to jump-start an immune response.

Over the past six years since Thymic Protein A was introduced as an oral nutritional supplement, several human studies have further substantiated the scientific findings that this protein ALONE, in its purified state, has tremendous immune regulation capabilities as both a stimulant and a down-regulating agent, depending on the bodys requirements. Two studies were completed one involving chronic fatigue syndrome (CFIDS) which showed improvement both clinically and by diagnostic testing, the second study involving Epstein-Barr (EBV) patients, it also showed improvements both clinically and by diagnostic testing.

“The single best immune system supplement available. – Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D. Director, Annapolis Research Center

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, empty one packet under tongue and allow to dissolve for 3 minutes. Use 1-3 packets daily, as often as every 4 hours, or as directed by a health care practitioner.

Ingredients: Each pack contains 4 micrograms freeze-dried, purified Protein A from calf thymus cell culture, in a base of maltodextrin.
