    TB500 log - injury recovery

    Starting 2-3 weeks ago I did something to my shoulder, I can't do benchpress or shoulder press now, if I do any exercise with my palms are facing out it hurts my shoulder so I have to work around it. It didn't happen all of a sudden, just gradually happened. At first it was kind of a sharper pain (not real sharp) right below my shoulder/delt where my upper arm begins, right in between there it was this one spot where the pain would come from. It has now become a duller pain in the whole shoulder, I feel like it has reduced a little from the sharpness coming from the one spot.

    I came across somebody wanting to use HGH for injury recovery and was told about TB500 about how much better it is for recovery. Even though I have HGH I can't run it because I'm diabetic and it makes me insulin resistant and my blood glucose was high all the time. So, I felt like TB500 was my only option. I started Googling and I can only find positive reviews and logs by people using this compound. I can't find any negative comments.

    I took the first shot on Monday. There's a couple different ways people are dosing but, it's relatively similar. I'm going to run it this way:

    week 1 - 4mg (2mg - on Mon/Thurs).
    week 2-6 - 2mg a week

    If I see results then I'll continue to run it 2mg every month.

    I'll continue updating this log with my progress if my shoulder is healing or not.

    Here's some info on TB500 but, if you Google "TB500" you'll find everything you need to know:

    "TB-500 is a synthesized version of Thymosin Beta 4, a peptide that naturally occurs in all animal cells. The natural version of this chemical is used by the animals body to improve differentiated endothelial cells so they can perform specialized functions.

    This helps the body to grow new cells and dermal tissue to replace any that have aged or been damaged. Thymosin Beta 4 has also been found to play a role in decreasing inflammation, keratinocyte migration and collagen deposition.

    The artificial form of this chemical; TB-500 is being investigated for its roles in regulating Actin. This is a cell building protein that helps to encourage cell movement and structure. There are thousands of similar proteins in each animal cell, but actin makes up approximately 10 percent of these proteins, making it an essential part of the genetic makeup of these cells."

    More info:

    TB-500 is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring peptide present in virtually all human and animal cells, Thymosin Beta 4 (T√4). It is a first-in-class peptide candidate that promotes the following*:



    Endothelial (blood vessels) cell differentiation

    Angiogenesis (growth of new blood cells from pre-existing vessels) in dermal tissues

    Keratinocyte migration

    Collagen deposition; and

    Decreases inflammation.


    TB-500 offers many benefits to the equine world in performance racing. Recent trials by some of the world‚s leading trainers on their prize winning equine members of both genders, have been credited by a huge boost in their race-day results, something long desired in the racing world.


    These trials along with clinical trials have indicated the following benefits associated with the use of TB-500 on mares and stallions*:



    Increase muscle growth with huge increases in endurance and strength noted

    Relaxed muscle spasm

    Improved muscle tone

    Increase the exchange of substance between cells

    Encourage tissue repair

    Stretches connective tissue

    Helps maintain flexibility

    Reduces inflammation of tissue in joint

    Enhances nutritional components in the animal

    Prevents the formations of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons and ligaments.

    I can't say that TB500 is better than hgh for recovery from injury. I would guess that there's no way that could be true. What it does do, amazingly well, is reduce inflammation and all but eliminate tendinitis symptoms. It has been crucial for my knees. Nothing beats my seros for recovery from a brutal workout, and from everything I've ever seen, nothing compares to its collagen synthesis properties either.
    Conquer yourself through wise experimentation.

    I shouldn't have said that I heard it's "better" than GH, I read some people say it's "quicker" but, then again that's all bro science and I have no idea and should've probably left that part out. I'm not trying to say it's better and can't know for myself by comparing it either since I can't run GH.

    Great idea for a thread!

    I've had 100% recovery from tendonitis, and 100% relief from shoulder pain due to TB.

    Hope you experience the same results.

    Good luck!

    did 2nd shot today, obviously too early to see anything yet. was at the gym today was arms day, was having issues with shoulder press on the machine couldn't do it, too much pain in my right arm when I'd try to push up on the bar. switched to dumbell shoulder press and if i angled it a certain way I was able to do it. couldn't do overhead tricep extensions with the rope either, did 1 set but, it was hurting, can't tell where the pain is coming from exactly sometimes in my shoulder and sometimes feels like it's in my bicep also. the pain only comes from movements if i'm just sitting here for example there's no pain, trainer said that was good so we're just working around it and not doing exercises that aggravates it.

    Most people are doing 5mg the first week. I stated in my first post that I was going to do 4mg because my vials are 2mg each and I guess some sellers offer it as 2.5mg per vial. I'm thinking I'm just going to end up doing 5mg also. I'll just do 1mg later tonight, didn't have time earlier to reconstitute a new vial so just did the 2mg. Then next 2 weeks I'll probably do 2.5mg then 2mg after that. I'll update my exact dosing schedule when I'm done with the first few weeks.

    also I should probably add that I'm doing the shots sub-q seems everybody is doing their shots like that, it doesn't have to be IM or at the source of injury it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    I had severe tendonitis in both elbows that started when I first got back in the gym after a long lay off. I let it get to the point that it was ****ing unbearable to shake someone's hand or pick up a bottle of water. I tried conventional therapy which provided no relief. I then started running tb500 and getting therapy from Arrosti(which hurts like a mofo) after about 3 months I was back to 95%. I will still get a flare up every now and then but a little ice and I'm good to go.

    Have you stopped running tb500 or are you running a maintenance dose? I've read two theories so far, some say to run a maintenance dose some say to cycle it as needed (when in pain).

    I'll be starting TB500 soon as well. I have right Bi tendonitis that has gone on forever. It is better than it was but doing any kind of Bi work is almost impossible. I want to be able to train BI's on my next cycle.

    I ran it at around 5 mg a week till I felt I was healed. Never went to a maitinence dose. I will run it again at the sme dose if I get a flare up that decides to hang round.

    Thanks for posting a log user. I have used gh for shoulder recovery subq and IM post shoulder surgery. I still have a lingering pain in my other shoulder since last nov. I've been looking into TB500 and have read Times Romans's threads on other boards regarding its success. I will def be following this thread closely.

    PM sent. Our new sponsor Hardcore Peptides (banner on the left) has it, though I didn't get it from there. Just saying that's an option as well.

    Also I don't know if it's maybe just in my head but, today I feel like I'm getting a little more range of motion before feeling it in my shoulder/bicep/upper arm. It's still there and noticeable but, earlier this morning I was rotating my arm around and just seemed like I was able to get more rom than before. Also at work I do some shipping and though I did still feel it pulling items out, I want to say it was a little less than usual. If it really did improve it's not anything major, it's very minor but, something in me just wants to say there seems to be some very minor improvement today.

    We'll see, hopefully I'm not just getting my hopes up. It's just that everybody (and I mean everybody, every person that has used it and posted feedback) seems to have positive experiences with this and I don't think my issue is as bad as others, some people needing surgery and using this, I think mine is not nearly that bad so I'm hoping I will recover quick.

    I'm also doing my shot all at once on the same day once a week, except for the first week I split it. I think that's what most people are doing, not really sure.
