Thymosin Beta-4 (TB-500) plays an essential role in different stages of wound healing. It does so by first fighting off pathogens that may be present at the site of injury. It then inhibits cytokines to prevent inflammation which may continue to cause further damage and then promotes stem cell migration and differentiation which help in the closure of wounds. One of its main functions also pertains to angiogenesis (the physiological process through which new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels).
Equine athletes often end up in a situation where a bruise or a wound hinders their progress and slows them down or a sprain or strain may even sideline them. Here is where a peptide like TB4 comes to the rescue. Known for its wound-healing properties, this peptide can also further enhance muscle growth, tone, and stamina.
What is Thymosin Beta-4?
Thymosin Beta-4 is a small, endogenous peptide that is originally isolated from the Thymus gland and comprises forty-three amino acids. Thymosin Beta-4 belongs to the ‘Thymosin’ family of lymphocyte growth factors initially extracted from calf thymuses, with Thymosin Beta-4 being the most abundant of Beta-Thymosins. Thymosin Beta-4 is mainly found in the thymus gland but is also present in the spleen and peritoneal macrophages.
Benefits of Thymosin Beta-4
The benefits of Thymosin Beta-4 have been explored through clinical trials on both human and animal models, including equines. One of the premium benefits of Thymosin Beta-4 is the ability to modulate the wound-healing process through its anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic properties. This greatly benefits equine athletes who frequently experience muscle tears and skin damage.
Thymosin Beta-4 may also protect equine athletes from any adverse complication that may accompany an injury and then helps them recover faster. Not only this but Thymosin Beta-4 is also known to enhance strength and stamina, thus proving a must-use for equine athletes!
The equine liver can be injured due to blunt trauma, diseases, or medications that disturb the equine body’s biochemical functions. In such instances, Thymosin Beta-4 employs anti-oxidative functions in the tissues of the liver and prevents fibrotic scar formation. This keeps liver function intact.
By alleviating inflammation in diseased and damaged tissues, Thymosin Beta-4 exerts therapeutic effects on a multitude of disorders.
