TB-500 is a synthetic peptide version of the naturally occuring healing protein present in about all human and mammalian cells known as Thymosin Beta 4 (TB4). Research has shown TB 500 to have beneficial effects on wound healing, injury recovery, flexibility, and inflammation. These desirable effects are accomplished through TB 500’s influence on blood cell and blood vessel development, cellular differentiation, and cell migration. A major part of its healing capability stems from the peptide’s regulation of actin, a cell building protein essential to healing and wound repair.
There are many positive effects associated with Tb500 use, including enhanced recovery, reduced inflammation, and improved flexibility. The peptide works very effectively to aid recovery of slow healing injuries such as those to connective tissue, i.e. tendons and ligaments. Muscle injuries and injuries to skin are greatly helped as well.
TB-500 is a naturally occurring peptide found in high concentrations in blood platelets, wound fluid and other tissues. TB-500 peptides for research are not growth factors; rather major actin regulating protein peptides. TB 500 has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured and/or damaged tissues.
