Why Are T Cells SO Important?

T cells are immune cells produced by the thymus gland; they are released from the thymus gland and enter the bloodstream, ready to wipe out any foreign invaders in the body and a major killer of cancer cells. Issues with T-Cell production has been a concern for those with measurable immune compromise and/or serious disease. In a recent 2020 paper published in Science, researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Newcastle University, and Ghent University, Belgium, mapped thymus tissue throughout the human lifespan.

It seems to be a very interesting to help establish which genes are switched on to up regulate the immune system and the production of the right subtypes of T cells. The findings and mapping of the immune system is an exciting new project that’s putting the “jigsaw pieces together to get a bigger picture of how immunity develops.” Senior author, Dr Sarah Teichmann, from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and co-chair of the Human Cell Atlas Organising Committee, said: “This map of the thymus is an important part of the Human Cell Atlas mission to chart every cell type in the human body. It is helping us learn about developmental pathways within the body, and the age-associated decline of the immune system. This has applications in cellular engineering, including the possibility of creating an artificial thymus for regenerative medicine.”

In natural medicine, we have long known the importance of stimulating the thymus gland to help up regulate immune activity. Products like Cytozyme-THY supplies glandular specific support in the form of Neonatal Thymus Concentrate (bovine), combined with SOD and catalase, important antioxidant enzymes. I love Biotics products as they have been at the forefront of glandular production. Glandulars from Biotics Research are prepared strictly from BSE-free countries and collected under USDA inspection. Most Biotics Research glandular products incorporate tissues from newborn calves, harvested specifically for Biotics Research, to ensure quality and to provide a reproducible source of the bovine tissues. Inevitably, in certain cases, adult organs must be used, as in the case of ovarian and orchic tissue, which is unobtainable from very young animals.

While we hope this new research will give us exciting results to improve our immune response, adding Cytozyme-THY to one’s immune support can help stimulate direct, natural production of one’s personal immune attack.
