Thymus Gland Hormones
The thymus gland is located over the heart. It controls immunity, allergy, blood cell production, tissue repair, bone growth, and protein synthesis.
Nervous system: varies with secondary gland type. Usually sympathetic-dominant or balanced.
- The hormones thymosin and thymic humoral factor stimulate the major immune responses. Thymosin also inhibits mental, emotional, and physical functions in favor of rest when ill.
- In contrast thymopoietin reduces immune responses but stimulates allergic responses. It also re-stimulates mental, emotional and physical functions.
- Thymulin (bound to zinc) controls tissue repair and bone and tissue growth.
- The thymus also makes all other hormones and neuropeptides in the body to some extent.
