Thymomodulin (GMP) 

Many studies report about clinical evidence for Thymomodulin. According to clinical examinations, the regular application of Thymomodulin reduces the susceptibility to infections.

Thymomodulin is a powerful immunomodulator

A weakened immune system is an ideal situation for opportunistic infections which often take a chronic or recurrent course.
Immunodeficiencies such as recurrent respiratory infections, asthma, atopic dermatitis, atopic eczema and food allergy are examples of clinical conditions where Thymomodulin can provide a visible improvement in the general conditions of many patients:

The Thymus glands are submitted to a special extraction process developed by our company. No alcohol or other solvents are used in the production.

The Thymus gland

Thymus Gland is a small gland in the upper chest under the breastbone. By the age of 20 the gland begins to shrink and its activity decline throughout a life thereafter.

Functions of the Thymus Gland

The Thymus gland plays a crucial role in growth as well as in developing and improving the immune system. In the human body the thymus gland creates ‘T-4 helper white blood cells.

It also generates the ‘T-8 killer white blood cells’

Both cell types are white blood cells that protect the body by producing antibodies and locating invaders such as viruses and bacteria.

Absorption of BIOFAC Thymomodulin oral grade

Even though proteins are digested into peptides and amino acids in the gut, it is well known that significant quantities of proteins, such as gliadin from wheat, milk immunoglobulin and hemoglobin will enter the body intact. The proteins in BIOFAC Thymomodulin will enter the body via a process called a ‘pinocytosis’; this absorption takes place in the small intestine.

BIOFAC Thymomodulin Cosmetic Grade

Thymomodulin is recognized as a substance activating and re-activating the cell system and thereby promoting defense mechanism of the skin. It promotes regeneration of the fibroblasts damaged by UV-light.
