WHAT IS TB 500
TB-500 is a synthetic peptide of the naturally occuring healing protein present in about all human and mammalian cells known as Thymosin Beta 4 (TB4). TB 500 is thought to have beneficial effects on wound healing, injury recovery, flexibility, and inflammation. Research indicated the effects of TB 500 are on blood cell and blood vessel development, cellular differentiation, and cell migration. The healing capability is due in large from the peptide’s regulation of actin, a cell building protein essential to healing and wound repair.
TB 500 is produced in the thymus gland and is found in high concentrations in wound fluids. Research demonstrates it has wound healing properties in addition to healing and repair of skin, cornea, and heart.
TB 500 is a naturally occurring peptide also found in high concentrations in blood platelets. TB-500 peptides for research are not growth factors; rather major actin regulating protein peptides. TB 500 plays an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured and/or damaged tissues. The gene that codes for Thymosin Beta-4 was noted in a study to be one of the first to be stimulated after an incident of injury.
Present in almost all human and animal cells, Thymosin Beta 4 is naturally occurring wound healing peptide. TB 500 , a synthetically made version of TB4 that facilitates comparable healing and recovery by helping building new blood vessels, muscle tissue fibers, blood cells, and facilitating cell migration. For a stressed and injured person, TB 500 can offer an extremely desirable wound healing effects.
Important information: unlike BPC-157, TB-500 is absolutely, 100% banned by WADA and most other global sporting organization both in-competition and out-of-competition. You should NOT use this if you are competing in any such sanctioned sport as it definitely falls under the banned category of “Peptide Hormones, Growth Factors, Related Substances and Mimetics (S2)”.
TB 500 BACKGROUND INFORMATION
As stated previously, TB-500 is a synthetic version of Thymosin Beta 4, a protein peptide that occurs naturally in the bodies of both animals and humans. Although TB-500 is available for research purposes, it is commonly used by many veterinarians who conduct clinical trials using TB-500 on horses. It is used to help promote healing from injury and reduce recovery time. Studies on horses with thymosin began in the 1960s. Dr. Allan Goldstein formulated thymosin alpha 1, in order to increase immune cell activity and subsequently thymosin beta 4 or TB-500, in order to accelerate healing and wound repair.
In horse racing TB 500 as shown signigicant reduction of inflammation and the inhibition or reduction of adhesions from injury. The human use of thymosin began in 1974, with the first reported case being a young girl who was injected with thymosin due to a nonfunctioning thymus gland. Since then, an increasing number of athletes and biohackers have been using thymosin all for the very same reasons of repair, reduction of inflammation and to speed up recovery.
HOW DOES TB 500 WORK
TB 500 aids in recovery by increasing actin. By up-regulating this cellular protein, TB 500 is able to boost actin’s positive effects. Actin helps to promote cell migration and proliferation. As a result, new blood vessels form and inflammation can be regulated so that healing and recovery are optimized. In addition, TB 500 can travel a long distance in the body because of its unique molecular structure. Therefore systemic effects occur to help both local and distant sites of injury including reduced inflammation and optimizing flexibility. A noted benefit vs side effect is the regrowing and darkening of hair.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TB 500
- Enhanced Recovery
- Reduced Inflammation
- Improved Flexibility
- Aid Recovery of Slow Healing Injuries such as those to connective tissue, i.e. tendons and ligaments
- Boost Muscle injuries recovery
- Promote healing of skin injuries
WHAT IS THE DOSE OF TB-500
TB500 comes as a lyophilized (freeze dried)powder that needs to be reconstituted with bacteriostatic sodium chloride 0.9%.
Doses can range from 5 mg to 20 mg per week by SQ or IM injections divided into 2-3 injections per week. It is then lowered after the first 1-2 weeks to a maintenance dose approximately 1/2 of the original weekly dose and administered once a week thereafter.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF TB 500
There are many positive effects associated with Tb500 use, including enhanced recovery, reduced inflammation, and improved flexibility. The peptide works very effectively to aid recovery of slow healing injuries such as those to connective tissue, i.e. tendons and ligaments. Muscle injuries and injuries to skin are greatly helped as well. From reports from users and researchers around the globe, TB 500 seems to cause very few, if any, serious negative side effects.
Most peptides generally can produce a lightheadedness or nauseous feeling upon injection. Also, flu-like symptoms are prevalent among many other peptides as well. However, the incidence of these negative side effects occurring with TB500 administration is reported to be very low, if at all. TB 500 appears to be a very well tolerated peptide among users.
