The thymus gland is one of the principle glands for the auto immune system. It is composed of two soft pinkish-grey lobes lying in a bib-like fashion just below the thyroid gland and above the heart. It is also known as the longevity gland.
The thymus produces T-lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell responsible for ”cell-mediated immunity.” This term refers to immune mechanisms not controlled or mediated by antibodies. Cell-mediated immunity is extremely important in resisting infection by mold-like bacteria: yeast, fungi, parasites, viruses, toxins and allergens. The function of the thymus gland is to program white blood cells, the body’s immune army, in their various tasks and then send them into the blood to recognize and destroy pathogens. It ”instructs” certain T-cells what to attack and when. Some of the T-cells, in turn, control other white cells, which are responsible for maintaining certain antibodies. Without the thymus’s instructions, the T-cells may fail to attack enemies like bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells, or they may even mistake some of your own cells for an invading enemy and attack you–known as autoimmune disease. Examples of autoimmune disease are: multiple sclerosis, cancer, atherosclerosis, adult-onset diabetes, and rheumatic diseases such as arthritis.
The thymus gland, weighs less than half of an ounce at birth, but by puberty, the thymus will reach to its maximum size of about 10 ounces. After age 20, the thymus begins to shrink (atrophy) and thymic cells progressively die off to be replaced by fat and connective tissue. At the critical early twenties stage, the abundance of well-functioning T-cells regulate the immune system and help the body fight off pathogens and disease. But with the inexorable shrinking of the thymus gland over time, by about age forty, the output of thymic hormones has decreased significantly, and the T-cells have begun to lose their effectiveness. It is this gradual loss of functioning T-cells that is thought to be responsible for many of the age-related changes in the immune system.
The thymus gland is also highly responsive to our emotions and shuts down when we are feeling stressed, unfulfilled, and without purpose. As a result, the white blood cells become fewer in number and less aggressive.
Support for the thymus gland can be achieved through a healthy diet; healthy sleep patterns so that the body produces melatonin and receives adequate rest; water and exercise, and our learning to manage stress effectively.
Life Choice Thymus gland is formulated from organic New Zealand lamb. Cellular delivery is as important as the gland itself. Zinc and B-6 must be available within the system for thymic absorption to occur, and because of this, we have formulated our Thymus with the best transporters, Zinc Picolinate and P5P—as usual, nothing but the very best.
What is Life Choice® Thymus Gland for?
The “T” in thymus represent T-cells (T-lymphocytes) one of the main adaptive components of our immune defence. Life Choice® Thymus Gland helps support the thymus gland and immune function.
What is the source of the thymus gland used in Life Choice® Thymus Gland?
Life Choice® Thymus Gland is derived from raw desiccated full gland concentrate (not extract) of Thymus Gland, sourced from non-GMO grass-fed New Zealand ovine (sheep). New Zealand tests every animal (oppose to North America that tests 1 of every 100 or so animal) for BSE and TSE. New Zealand does not inject their food livestock with antibiotics or growth hormones.
What are the ingredients in the Thymus Gland?
Thymus Gland (ovine = sheep) 200mg, B-6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate 37.3mg) 25mg, Zinc Picolinate 25mg.
Is Life Choice® Thymus Gland recommended for AIDS patients?
Yes, based on AIDS patients having lower than average T-cell count. Once infected with AIDS the AIDS patients sees a dramatic drop in their T-Cell production. According to clinical studies, and to support their immune system and raise T-Cells count it is recommended to take 3 capsules 3 times a day.
Is Life Choice® Thymus Gland recommended for seniors?
Yes, as we age our T-cell production declines, during our early twenties there is abundance of healthy well-functioning T-cells that regulate the immune system and help the body fight off pathogens and disease. With the inexorable shrinking of the thymus gland by about age forty, the output of thymic hormones has decreased significantly, and the T-cells have begun to lose their effectiveness.
Why is Vitamin B-6 and Zinc Picolinate added to this product?
Zinc and B-6 must be available within the system for thymic absorption to occur, and because of this, we have formulated our Thymus with the best transporters, Zinc Picolinate, no zinc translates to no immunity and B-6 in the methylated form P5P (pyridoxal-5′-phosphate) to aid in cellular delivery, nothing but the very best.
Is Life Choice® Thymus Gland VEGAN?
No, it is not. It is delivered from ovine (sheep).
Q: Is Life Choice Thymus Gland Kosher and Halal?
A: All Life Choice® glands including Thymus are produced Kosher and Halal friendly, Thymus gland is from lamb (all others from bovine). The livestock live their lives in fields eating green grass, free to wander and lie down as they please. They are free from growth hormones and not administered antibiotics. Animals are carefully managed to minimize stress levels, before being laid down they are naturally rendered unconscious so they are not aware of the process. Extra care is given to the cattle they must have passed ante-mortem and post-mortem inspection at the time of being laid down, the cattle originated from New Zealand and derived from regions/animals which were considered free of diseases of concern to the OIE, relevant to the trade in these products.
