ThyMune 60 caps | Karuna Health - Balanced thymus tissue complex for immune support
The thymus gland is critical to immuno-competence. The thymus secretes a family of polypeptide hormones that act on the structures and functions of the cellular immune apparatus, such as the maturation of precursors into fully competent T-cells. Age-related atrophy results in reduced thymus activity in later years.
ThyMune supplies thymus tissue polypeptides along with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and Echinacea extract for a broad spectrum approach to immune system support.
The thymus secretes a family of polypeptide hormones that act on the structures and functions of the cellular immune apparatus, such as the maturation of T-cell precursors into fully competent T-cells (J Immunopharmacol 1979;1:277-310).
Thymus function declines with age, correlating with atrophy of the gland itself, and with the progressive, age-related loss of normal immune regulation (Clin Exp Immunol 2001; 125:409-13, J Clin Immunol 2000; 20: 250-6).
Controlled clinical studies demonstrate that oral thymus supplements can have optimizing effects on immune function (Pediatr Med Chir 1990;12:229-32, Drug Today 1989; 25:337-62, Med Oncol Tumor Pharmacother 1989;6:5-9).
Optimum immune function is facilitated by adequate intake of vitamin C (Adv Nutr Res 1984;6:
19-45), beta-carotene (Proc Nutr Soc 1991;50:263-74), vitamin E (JAMA 1997;277:1380-6) and zinc (Fed Proc 1986;45:1474-9).
Extracts of Echinacea species contain polysaccharides, alkylamides/polyacetylenes and caffeic acid derivatives that have immune-stimulating effects such as proliferation of natural killer cells
and monocytes, activation of macrophages, and production of cytokines (Int J Immunopharmacol 1997;19:371-9; Immunpharmacol 1997;35:229-35; J Natl Cancer Inst 1989;81:669-75).
