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.
