The thymus gland is found in your chest‚ right behind your breast bone. The role of the thymus is to produce hormones and proteins that promote the production of T-lymphocytes‚ which are a type of white blood cell. These cells form a part of your immune system‚ protecting you from illnesses caused by bacteria‚ viruses and fungi. The thymus gland is at its largest size and works the hardest during your childhood years. Like all glands in the body‚ the thymus gland is sensitive to high levels of heavy metals‚ radiation‚ and toxic chemicals. The health of your thymus gland is essential to support the workings of your immune system. If your thymus gland does not work properly‚ your immune system may not work as well as it should‚ and you may find that you are more prone to suffering from infections. To ensure that your thymus gland is able to help you maintain a healthy immune system‚ you may be advised to take thymus gland supplements. These supplements are made from glandular tissue from animals‚ which is dried before being ground into capsules. The thymus extract contained within Integrative Theraputics’ Thymucin™ is made of small‚ broken down components that your body is able to absorb and use with ease. If you feel that your immune system hasn’t been fighting illnesses effectively‚ you may find this supplement helpful. The ingredients of thymus gland supplements are believed to stimulate your thymus gland and enhance your ability to ward off infections. Each capsule contains Thymucin™‚ a protein that supports that gland; it also provides astragalus‚ a Chinese herb that promotes healthy immune system functioning. A bottle of Thymucin™ contains 60 capsules‚ which is enough to last you for one month‚ depending on your dosage.
