Peptide Thymosin Beta – 4

Those taking Thymosin beta-4 will eventually notice their regular illnesses gradually dwindle or stop completely.

Those who were athletes could probably share at least one story of an injury that they once endured. These injuries can range from mild (such as an ankle sprain) to severe [such as a herniated disc in the spine or a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)]. Regardless of the level of severity, any type of injury will lead to swelling, thus causing inflammation. Although, inflammation is not just primarily caused by injuries. It can also be triggered by environmental toxicity or a buildup of malevolent pathogens from poor diet or constant exposure to toxic chemicals. Inflammation occurs when the body’s immune system sends white blood cells to fight against an infection, which explains the swelling of muscles, organs, or tendons. Inflammation can also generate bacterial buildup and spread to other parts of the body, thus leading to more chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, joint disease, diabetes, and even cancer.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) stated that “chronic inflammatory diseases are the most significant cause of death in the world¹” while the World Health Organization (WHO) ranks chronic disease as the “greatest threat to human health¹”. LifeWorks Wellness Center specializes in tending to those who suffer with diseases that are induced from inflammation. To do this, we establish a few treatment methods for patients that include intravenous therapies, detoxification, a natural diet plan, supplementation, and peptides. One particular treatment method that has proven great results from patients is peptide Thymosin Beta – 4 (TB4).

What is Peptide Thymosin Beta – 4?

When our body lacks a certain amount of proteins or doesn’t create enough of it naturally, this can greatly alter how certain functions within the body operate. For this reason, LifeWorks Wellness Center offers peptides as a solution for protein deficiencies to release amino acids to augment those particular tasks. TB4 is a peptide that contains 43 amino acids and is naturally produced throughout the entire body. It is found within different cell types (except red blood cells), tissues, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva, wound fluids, blister fluids and blood plasma. It is a regenerative peptide that regulates the activity of muscles, increases muscle growth, and improves healing. As an injectable peptide, it is used to perform these same activities for a faster healing process.

The Benefits of Thymosin Beta – 4

Since TB4 contains anti-inflammatory properties, the peptide can be used to tend to a wide range of conditions. If permitted, athletes use it as a speed healing method in order to continue practicing their sport of choice in a timely manner. While it’s mainly a healing peptide, it includes an assortment of other benefits such as:

  • Enhanced muscle growth
  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduce pain
  • Improve stamina
  • Stimulate angiogenesis
  • Quickly repair tissues

As a result, this can help treat those who suffer from conditions such as blood clots, soft tissue damage, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, muscle injuries, neurological disorders, and autoimmune disease.

Side Effects of Thymosin Beta – 4

Patients may experience a slight reddening or discomfort at the injected area. Temporary side effects include slight fatigue, lethargy, and headaches, however these aren’t expected to last long. If one continues to experience these side effects or they have worsened, please contact a LifeWorks practitioner as its possible one may be experiencing an allergic reaction or are not injecting the peptide correctly.

Fighting Inflammation at LifeWorks

Inflammation is defined as the “body’s process of fighting against things that harm it².” This response triggered by the immune system releases antibodies and an increased blood flow to the damaged area. If this lingers for too long, the inflammation can spread to other parts of the body and induce chronic conditions that affect the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and gut. It’s up to the individual to be extremely proactive in preventing inflammation from developing into something more serious.

If you or someone you know has suffered an injury, experienced chronic pain, or has endured long-term inflammation, please call to schedule an appointment at 727-466-6789 or contact us online.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
