    Ovine thymus is from 100% grass-fed, grass-finished sheep raised in New Zealand. The concept of glandular therapy is that oral ingestion of specific animal-gland material will strengthen the corresponding gland in humans*.

    DESCRIPTION:
    Primary Usage:

    • Immune Boosting*
    • Immune Modulating*

      Supreme Nutrition Products has decided to add several glandulars to its product line. Our first is freeze-dried, 100% grass-fed, ovine (sheep) thymus from young sheep raised in New Zealand. As with all of our products, there are no fillers, binders, flow agents, or other ingredients other than the capsule. Our thymus glandular product contains various peptides, hormones, etc. (i.e., thymosin, thymopoietin, and serum thymic factor). These components, like herbal adaptogens, help modulate, normalize, and optimize immune function. We decided with our glandulars to use ovine instead of bovine (cow) sources. Ovine is one of the most hypoallergenic foods and one of the cleanest domesticated animals. Also, ovine is generally harvested at a younger age than bovine.


      Supreme Nutrition Products has an amazing array of herbs with antimicrobial properties and immune-modulating properties to normalize immune function. We look at this glandular as a perfect complement to these, further helping in acute and subacute microbial issues therapeutically and preventatively.


      Thymus tissue has been used both in immune deficiency states and has the potential to help those with overactive or autoimmune conditions.


      Historically, Thymus tissue has been used in treating bronchitis, allergies (including hay fever) and sensitivities, recurrent infections, asthma, and hepatitis B & C (1,2,3).


      The concept of glandular therapy is that oral ingestion of specific animal-gland material will strengthen the corresponding gland in humans (“like treats like” as it will have all the enzymes, hormones, and co-factors the gland needs for proper functioning). Like most organ glandulars, other than the brain and intestines, it can contain a significant amount of vitamins and minerals, especially B vitamins.  


      One double-blinded placebo-controlled study on children with frequent respiratory infections found that treatment with thymus extract reduced the infection rate (4).


      Thymus glandulars were also shown to be helpful for food allergies in one study (5), as well as various dermatological conditions, including eczema (6,7,8) and autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (9). It has been used in the treatment of childhood asthma.


      Thymus extracts have been shown to modulate the production, maturation, and activation of T lymphocytes (10) and to stimulate the conversion of immature thymocytes (T6 cells) to non-dedicated T cells (T3 cells) in human bone marrow. In the more mature T cells, thymic extracts have been shown to effectively increase the number and function of T helper/inducer lymphocytes (T4 cells) and suppressor cells (T8 cells) (10).


      Thymus extracts have also been shown to reduce post-surgical infections, decrease the damage of chemotherapy and radiation, and have been used as adjuncts to mainstream therapy for neoplasms. Clinical studies have shown it is useful for herpes simplex and herpes zoster, psoriasis, etc. (10).
