Thymogen accelerates healing of wounds in diabetics, improves sports performance as well?

For years, Russian doctors have used the dipeptide Thymogen, which is available on the gray market in the West. According to a 2019 patent, Thymogen accelerates the healing of diabetic foot ulcers. The way Thymogen works suggests that this dipeptide may also be interesting for endurance athletes. Thymogen improves the supply of oxygen to the tissues.

The way Thymogen works suggests that this dipeptide may also be interesting for endurance athletes. Thymogen improves the supply of oxygen to the tissues.


What is Thymogen?
Thymogen is a dipeptide. It consists of a tryptophan molecule bonded to a glutamic acid molecule. Thymogen was developed by the same Russian researchers who also invented and studied peptides such as Vilon, Livagen and Epitalon. They are especially interesting for longevity purposes.

You can read more about this line of research here. The post is mainly about Epitalon.

In online stores that sell research chemicals you will find injectable preparations with Thymogen, but also inhalers. These are intended for intranasal administration.

You can see the structural formula below.

The patent
The patent describes the use of Thymogen in diabetics with chronic foot ulcers. Wounds on the lower body are difficult to heal with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. If those wounds become infected, the sequences can be serious.

With diabetes, blood vessels are damaged and the supply of oxygen - and nutrients - to the tissues is reduced. According to the patent, Thymogen increases oxygen transport to the tissues. This is evident from the decrease in HIF-1-alpha by Thymogen. HIF-1-alpha becomes active due to oxygen deficiency.

The patent says that when administered via an inhaler or an injection, the effective doses are between 1 and 10 micrograms per kilo of body weight per day. The patent describes human research conducted with diabetics with wounds on their feet. The passage below gives the doses tested and the duration of administration.

In type 2 diabetics who did not yet need to use insulin, Thymogen reduced the concentration of HIF-1-alpha in the blood of the test subjects in the experimental group. You can see that above.

Administration of Thymogen reduced the classic symptoms of foot problems due to diabetes. Thymogen also accelerated the healing of the wounds.

After consuming gelatine hydroxyprolyl-glycine makes your muscles bigger and stronger
The dipeptide hydroxyprolyl-glycine, which appears in your blood after you've eaten gelatine or collagen, probably has an anabolic effect. It stimulates the formation of muscle fibres - and makes them bigger and stronger.

L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine helps dehydrated athletes to better times
A dipeptide protects endurance athletes from performance loss through dehydration.

Anabolic effect of dileucine greater than that of leucine
Research firm Increnovo discovered that the dipeptide of leucine stimulates muscle protein synthesis more strongly than regular leucine.
