Quad Immune Components

What is Quad Immune?

Quad Immune consists of Thymosin alpha 1, Zinc, Vitamin D and Vitamin B Complex with Vitamin C. Quad Immune’s components have been carefully selected for their clinically demonstrated immune system optimizing effects. Quad Immune supports the human immune response against viral infections, and Thymosin alpha 1 has been shown in studies to help regulate pro-inflammatory cytokine storms.

Thymosin Alpha 1

What is Thymosin alpha 1 (Tα1)?

Thymosin alpha 1 is a naturally occurring thymic polypeptide of 28 N-terminally acetylated amino acids. Wells Pharmacy Network compounds the synthetically manufactured peptide Thymosin alpha 1 (Tα1) in a sterile solution for subcutaneous injection. It is prepared in a vial at a concentration of 3mg/ml in a 5ml solution. Tα1 is a powerful modulator of immunity and inflammation as demonstrated in over 70 clinical studies, which generally report an improvement in subjects' immune response and improved recovery times to viral infections including SARS, HIV, Hepatitis B and C.

Thymosin alpha 1 exhibits a pleiotropic mechanism of therapeutic action, upregulating the innate immune response when required, and downregulating it when not needed. Tα1 acts as a multitask protein restoring immune system homeostasis and cell-mediated immune function in various pathological and physiological conditions, including viral infections.

How does Tα1 help the immune system?

Thymosin alpha 1 induces host-derived immune effectors and balances the Th1 and Th2 responses.

The effector cells improve immunomodulatory properties and augment T lymphocyte function, via:

  • modulation of interleukin-2 (IL-2)
  • stimulation of interferon-g (IFN-g) production
  • induction of T lymphocyte cells
  • induction of Natural Killer (NK) cells
  • stimulation of thymopoiesis

Studies show that Thymosin alpha 1:

  • increases major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class-1 and Toll-like receptor expression
  • downregulates terminal deoxynucleotide transferase (TdT) activity in TdT1 thymocytes
  • antagonizes activation induced (anti-CD3) and glucocorticoid-induced thymocyte apoptosis
  • stimulates Indoleamine-2,3-Dioxygenase (IDO) activity
  • increases FoxP3 IL-10 producing regulatory T cells
  • plays a role in feedback inhibition of cytokine production
  • dampens immune response to prevent a pro-inflammatory cytokine storm

What is Zinc?

Zinc is a chemical element found in human cells. Zinc is an important nutrient required by the human body to properly develop, grow, and maintain its structure and function. The human body needs Zinc to synthesize proteins and make DNA. Zinc also helps the human immune system to fight off various bacterial and viral infections.

How does Zinc help the immune system?

Zinc (as Zinc Picolinate) has been shown to:

  • support the proliferation of immune cells
  • decrease the incidence and duration of infections
  • reduce inflammatory response
  • reduce total mortality of elderly patients by 27%
Vitamin B and Vitamin C

What is Vitamin B Complex?

Vitamin B Complex is a combination of four B vitamins: B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (niacin), B-6 (pyridoxine), and B-12 (cobalamin). Each vitamin B is an important micronutrient with a crucial role in multiple human body systems and functions. Vitamin B Complex supports the nervous, cardiovascular, digestive, and immune systems, as well as healthy brain function, hormone production, cholesterol production, cell health, cell metabolism, red blood cell growth, muscle tone and overall energy levels.

How does Vitamin B Complex help the immune system?

Vitamin B Complex has been shown to:

  • aid the body’s ability to prevent infections
  • promote red blood cell growth
  • support cellular health
  • play a role in immune system development

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid or ascorbate) is a powerful antioxidant and an essential micronutrient needed by the body for tissue repair, neurotransmitter production, proper enzyme function, and immune system response.

How does Vitamin C help the immune system?

Vitamin C has been shown to:

  • regulate the cytokine storm immune response
  • promote development and maturation of T lymphocytes
  • promote development and maturation of Natural Killer (NK) cells
  • reduce oxidative stress on tissues and organs
  • inhibit systemic inflammation
Vitamin D

What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes calcium absorption and maintains appropriate calcium concentrations to enable bone mineralization, bone growth, and bone remodeling. Vitamin D plays a role in cell growth modulation, neuromuscular system, immune system, inflammation reduction, and overall optimal health.

How does Vitamin D help the immune system?

Vitamin D has been shown to:

  • inhibit viral replication
  • decrease inflammatory response
  • reduce infectious disease severity
