Thymosin Alpha-1 is a peptide chain that is made by the body. Its purpose is to help regulate the immune system by augmenting the function of the cells that fight off infections. Studies have shown that Thymosin Alpha-1 helps fight off viruses, bacteria, and fungal infections. It also modulates the immune system to fight cancer cells, make vaccines more effective, and kill cells that are unhealthy and are no longer useful to the body.
This peptide can be produced in a compounding pharmacy and used as natural therapy to enhance our immunity and prevent infections. The peptide is FDA approved and is injected into the fat under the skin twice a week for prevention, or more frequently for an active infection. Because the compounded version of this peptide is identical to that made by the body, there are few, if any, side effects.
45 Urgent Care is introducing a new service that includes the use of Thymosin Alpha-1 as both a preventive measure and a treatment for viral infections. We are currently prescribing it to treat patients who are COVID-19 positive because of its known effectiveness against viruses.
