What is Thymosin B4?

Thymosin Beta-4 is a 43-amino-acid peptide that promotes healing throughout the body. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. Found naturally in higher concentrations at injury sites, the water-soluble protein can repair tissue damage and regulate cell migration to a site. It can improve wound healing and repair not only the skin, but also the brain, spinal cord, and heart.

In addition, TB4 has a low molecular weight and doesn’t bind to the extracellular matrix. This enables it to easily travel throughout body tissues, which promotes a faster rate of healing. The peptide travels long distances, so it usually doesn’t have to be injected directly at the injury site.

Thymosin Beta-4 is most often used by people looking to quickly recover from injuries. Athletes may use it to speed healing and get on the field sooner; they can also benefit from enhanced muscle growth, tone, and stamina. However, the peptide has numerous other benefits, ranging from improved muscle development and repair to stretching of connective tissues to improve flexibility, to the prevention of fibrous band formation in body tissues. It is also used to treat:

  • Arthritis: Effective in treating inflammatory conditions, TB4 can act on inflamed tissue and even help improve mobility by minimizing joint inflammation.
  • Blood clots: It has also been found to be effective at treating blood clots and promote the growth of new blood cells.
  • Soft tissue damage: Injuries to muscles, tendons, and ligaments are more readily repaired when Thymosin Beta-4, which can also reduce scar tissue, is introduced.
  • Diseases: TB4 can help treat conditions such as autoimmune diseases and infections, as well as Lyme disease and traumatic brain injuries.
  • Muscular health: Improvements in the rate of muscle repair and growth have been noted, while it’s also possible to control muscle spasms.
  • Cardiovascular/neurological damage: TB4 has been found to promote new blood vessel formation, or angiogenesis, as well as neuron formation and improved axonal density in the brain.
