Standard Process Thymex- Boost Your Immune System Naturally- Uses, Side Effects, Benefits & Dose

By Dr. Candy Akers

Thymex is a great supplement if you are looking for an immune system boost. It targets the thymus gland, which is the "master gland" of the immune system.

This Thymex supplement is not like most other thymus supplements on the market. Thymex, made by Standard Process, is a super-concentrated cytosol extract from the cells of the thymus gland. 

The concentration of this product results in a large immediate boost to the immune system.

I was having trouble getting over a cold and a friend recommended this product suggesting that it might help strengthen my immune system. I began recovering right away and I believe the Thymex was a big part of it..

I am in a high risk group due to age, liver disease, allergies/asthma and hypertension. Well, despite trying my best, I still got sick with Covid a week ago, and I believe due to taking this product together with Vitamin D, I am recovering quickly with no complications. No breathing problems at all. I highly recommend this product.

I absolutely love thymex. As soon as I start to feel run down I take it multiple times a day and can usually avoid getting sick. I swear before this my immune system was so weak I would get sick so often. No longer a weakling!

I had a severe tooth infection for over a year. Tried round after round of antibiotics to get it under control to I could have a root canal finished. But the infection was actually WORSE every time I went back in for a check up! After being so sick for months form taking antibiotics it was suggested by a friend that I try Thymex. I stopped taking antibiotics and 10 days later infection was CLEARED!!!!!!
