Wellness at Century City

The Best Internist And Integrative Medicine Doctor In Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Cho incorporates thymic peptides, naturally produced by the thymus gland, in treatments to modulate the immune system. These peptides play diverse roles, including stimulating or suppressing immune responses, promoting repair and remodeling of tissues, enhancing neuroplasticity, and supporting stem cell differentiation. This approach is effective in treating chronic infections and aiding the body’s natural healing processes.

Thymosin Alpha-1: Natural Peptide for Immunity

The physiological processes that Thymic peptides—which are naturally produced in the thymus gland—include stimulation or suppression of immune responses, regulation of actin dynamics and cell motility, neuroplasticity, repair and remodeling of vessels of the heart and other injured tissues, angiogenesis, and stem cell differentiation. Essentially, thymic peptides modulate the immune system and can aid in the treatments of chronic infections.
