Thymosin Beta 4
Thymosin Beta 4 is a naturally occurring peptide. It is found in high concentrations in blood platelets, wound fluid and other tissues in the body. Tβ4 is not a growth factor; rather, it is a major actin regulating peptide. Tβ4 has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. The gene for Tβ4 has also been found to be one of the first to be upregulated after a wound occurs.
Thymosin Beta 4 is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring peptide present in virtually all human and animal cells, Thymosin Beta 4 (TÃŸ4). It is a first-in-class drug candidate that promotes the following*:Endothelial (blood vessels) cell differentiationAngiogenesis (growth of new blood cells from pre-existing vessels) in dermal tissuesKeratinocyte migrationCollagen deposition; andDecreases inflammation.Thymosin Beta 4 offers many benefits to the equine world in performance racing. Recent trials by some of the world’s leading trainers on their prize winning equine members of both genders, have been credited by a huge boost in their race-day results, something long desired in the racing world. These trials along with clinical trials have indicated the following benefits associated with the use of Thymosin Beta 4 on mares and stallions*:Relaxed muscle spasmImproved muscle toneIncrease the exchange of substance between cellsEncourage tissue repairStretches connective tissueHelps maintain flexibilityReduces inflammation of tissue in jointEnhances nutritional components in the animalPrevents the formations of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons and ligaments.When these proven benefits are viewed in conjunction with the fact that 60% of a horse’s body weight is muscle, it is clear to see the full potential of TB500 can be reviled in by majority of the horse’s body.In a racing era that surrounds itself around gaining that competitive edge through the use of various substances, none will deliver the results that will be experienced with the use of Thymosin Beta 4 Perhaps the greatest selling point of the product is that it’s 100% DRUG FREE and DOES NOT SWAB. This allows the peptide to be used right throughout racing spells in both training and competition completely free of any banned substance.
