The Thymus is a forgotten, but very important organ linked with immune health and longevity.
Thymus involution (aka atrophy) alters immunity and impacts repair processes associated with aging.
Accelerated aging (involution) is linked with reduced life expectancy and higher prevalence of age-related diseases.
This brief video goes into the some more details.

How Your Thymus Impacts Immunity
Thymus involution alters immunity and impacts repair processes associated with aging. Accelerated aging (involution) is linked with reduced life expectancy and higher prevalence of age-related diseases.
Thymic involution is linked with increased inflammation and the accumulation of altered T cell (T lymphocytes). Overtime, this can create imbalances in the body’s ability to repair and accumulation of more senescent cells.

Weight Gain May Accelerate Thymic Involution
Weight gain may accelerate thymic aging, reducing repair and altering immune health, scientists say.
Biopsies of overweight animals suggests fat deposits in thymus (ectopically) altering it's function.

Epigenetic Clock Test Reveals Biological Age, A Proxy of Thymus Atrophy
Thymus Revive is a targeted glandular-specific support derived from purified calf thymus extract (Neonatal Thymus Concentrate (bovine)). The calfs and their parents are grass-fed, pasture raised.
