The Straight-Ahead Truth as to How and Why it Works
TB500 is one of the more interesting peptides being used by thousands of people to help heal injuries faster. It’s also been studied more than most other peptides because it’s been used in veterinary medicine (mainly with racehorses), so there is a considerable amount of evidence as to its efficacy.
What is TB500?
Simply put, TB500 is a synthetic version of the healing protein released by the thymus gland (Thymosin Beta 4). That, in turn, creates T-cells which work to boost the immune system to fight off disease; plus, heals damage to the tendons, muscles, ligaments, and bones. It also reduces inflammation, increases collagen, and determines how well we recover from injuries. In short, the number of T-cells we have is a main component to one's health and TB500 essentially gives you "more."
More Benefits of TB500
TB500 also upregulates actin and myosin which open blood vessel pathways resulting in increased stamina and greater potential muscle growth. As an added benefit, it may help heal damaged heart tissue!
The molecular structure of TB500 (a sequence of amino acids) is created to resemble the same amino acid structure naturally released by the thymus gland. They are so close, in fact, that the TB500 works very much in the same way the body recognizes the molecular structure of Vitamin C in a vitamin pill (created in a lab) as it does to the Vitamin C in an orange.
TB500 vs BPC157
This similarity to endogenous thymosin is the main difference TB500 has over BPC157, which is another popular healing peptide. BPC157 does not exist in nature; therefore, it works on a completely independent principle. (More on that in an upcoming article.)
There is speculation that with enough T-cells we can prevent all disease, including viruses and cancer; thus, making the use of TB500 a potential game-changer in the field of anti-aging and longevity! Not to mention, a treatment for a host of illnesses. But we’re a long way from that…for now.
TB500 Side Effects
Of course, as is the case with any synthetic substance, there are potential side effects. In the case of TB500, the side effects appear to be mild. The most common side effects include face flushing after injection, possible headache, dizziness, and lethargy. The boost to the immune system may have some contraindications for people with auto-immune diseases, such as psoriasis, Hashimoto’s, and rheumatoid arthritis. It is best, of course, to consult with your Primary Care Doctor or Specialist first before starting a new medication.
The main concern with TB500 is making sure that what you buy is genuinely from an approved compounding pharmacy through a prescription. Avoid any products with packaging that says, “NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.” That message gets scammers off the hook.
TB500 is a fascinating product with enormous potential, and it’s something that definitely deserves the attention of anyone looking for improved performance, more muscle, and overall superior health. Contact us for a consultation today.
