Glandular Therapy‚ which is the principle behind Progressive Labs' Thymotrate‚ gained notice in Western medicine around the middle of the 1900s‚ although it may have existed in the traditional medicines of many cultures and societies throughout history. Glandular therapy (or organotherapy) is the use of endocrine glands from animals as supplementation to possibly aid in the development and function of human endocrine glands‚ which would then potentially aid in various metabolic processes. The glands used in organotherapy supplements‚ like Thymotrate‚ are generally dried and purified extracts.
Since Thymotrate specifically features thymus concentrate‚ it's formulated to possibly support healthy thymus function in humans.
The thymus plays a vital role in our immune system. It's responsible for supporting the essential cells of the adaptive immune system called T cells (or T-lymphocytes). These white blood cells are divided into two types: killer T-cells and helper T-cells. Killer T-cells are able to identify a certain antigen of an invading substance‚ allowing them to search for and potentially eliminate the unwanted substance. Helper T-cells‚ on the other hand‚ function as their name implies‚ they help other white blood cells in the immune system by dividing and releasing cytokines‚ tiny proteins that are meant to help out during the immune response. Different types of helper T-cells exist to assist in different types of immune responses.
Therefore‚ since Thymotrate features porcine thymus concentrate‚ it is believed that it may help support the healthy function of our thymus‚ which would then promote a healthy immune system.
Progressive Labs recommends a dosage of one capsule three or four times a day. However‚ it's also possible that your healthcare practitioner may suggest a different dosage.
