Immune Support

One of the biggest functions of proper hormone balance in the body is providing strong support for the body’s immune system. When the body is functioning as it should, it will be stronger and stand a better chance of being able to fight off infection and other potential threats. Many things could cause your immune system to be deficient in many areas, from chronic health conditions to a simple hormone deficiency and everything in between. Of course, there is more than one set of hormones that affect the immune response of the body, so it’s critical to learn more and find out what your body is missing.

Which Hormones Affect Immunity?

Several hormones could have an impact on your immunity. When the hormone levels are out of balance—either too high or too low—the body’s immune system can be affected. Some of the systems and hormones that could affect immunity include:

  • Adrenal glands
  • Thyroid
  • Estrogen and Progesterone
  • Testosterone

What many people don’t realize is that sex hormones can also have an impact on the body’s immunity. Testosterone is known to produce an immunosuppressive response while estrogen will typically enhance the immune system. The function of sex hormones is vast but their role in immune support cannot be ignored. Those who are struggling with an imbalance related to testosterone or estrogen could face any number of issues related to immune health if the imbalance is severe enough. 

Of course, with all of these potential hormone imbalances, how can you know what’s going on? This is where you’ll need to work with hormone specialists and your doctor to determine where you are lacking so that you can get the right therapy and supplemental hormones that your body needs most.

Thymosin Alpha 1

Thymosin Alpha 1 is a peptide that is produced by the thymus, which is where the T cells of the immune system mature until they are released by this peptide. Once the T cells are released, they can go to work protecting the body against various threats and invaders. When the T cell production in the body isn’t working as it should, the entire immune system could be affected.

Regulating the levels of Thymosin Alpha 1 will help improve the function of immune cells overall, which can help eradicate bad cells and even suppress tumor growth. It may also protect against chronic and acute infections, increase the effectiveness of vaccines, and more. Essentially, this peptide helps the body find and eradicate unhealthy cells, which is why it is critical to immune health.

Thymosin Beta 4

Thymosin, which is again secreted by the thymus, is responsible for stimulating T cell production and regulating the body’s immune response regarding T cell operation. It can also assist in tissue repair and muscle development, among other things. This hormone is also responsible for assisting in developing B cells to assist in the production of antibodies in plasma cells, and Thymosin Beta 4 is the most common form found in the body. Supplementing your hormones when this is lacking will offer plenty of benefits for immune support.

Therapy that includes this hormone may be able to reduce inflammation in the tissues and joints, encourage tissue repair, stretch connective tissues to keep them flexible and in good condition, and even encourage the development of new blood cells in the body’s tissues and muscles. As an immune support agent, TB4 has also been used for things like HIV/AIDS therapy, managing colds and infections, and even as part of managing inflammatory conditions.

LL-37

This peptide is one that has antimicrobial properties, and that has proven to work against many pathogens that are both Gram-positive and Gram-negative. In some cases, antimicrobial peptides, also known as AMPs, may be able to offer an alternative to traditional antibiotics. This specific peptide can inhibit a lot of bacterial and microbial activity and balance tissue inflammation, control infection, and even help promote wound healing. This is known as a multifunctional host defense peptide, which essentially means that it can stimulate a variety of responses in cells throughout the body. Therefore, when it is lacking, it can have several negative effects on the body.

The Importance of Immunity in a Post-COVID-19 World

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, immune health and support are a hot topic for many. After all, those who are most at risk of contracting this illness are those who have compromised immune systems or chronic health conditions that affect their ability to stay healthy or recover from illness and injury. Thus, improving the immune system through hormone therapy could prove to be beneficial not only for the sake of your overall health but for keeping you protected from the ongoing risk of contracting this disease.

Just because the world is coming back to life doesn’t mean that the risk is gone. Now more than ever, in fact, people need to be cautious and prepared to protect themselves in the best way possible. With hormone therapy for immune support, more people will be able to feel confident in their ability to stay healthy. It may not be the right solution for everyone, but it’s worth considering for those who need a little more help with their immune support.
