The thymus is a small gland located behind the upper chest area, which plays a key role in proper immune functioning. This gland peaks in size at puberty, and then begins steady involution (shrinkage), until eventually it becomes incapable of producing certain proteins the immune system needs.
All white blood cells (WBC’s) originate in the bone marrow. Some cells which can mature upon their release from the marrow are termed B-cells (B for bone). Other WBC’s are still immature when released from the marrow, and must travel to the thymus to receive proteins for activation. These cells are termed T-cells (T for thymus gland).
The T-4 Helper cell is the manager of the immune system. It is one kind of white blood cell that needs a thymic protein to be activated. Without a specific protein (protein A), the T-4 cell cannot function, and immune activity suffers.
ProBoost Thymic Protein A supplies the missing thymic protein and activates the T-4 Helper cell.
