Stem Cells & Anti-Aging
Adult Stem Cells and Anti-Aging
The human body depends on adult stem cells in the bone marrow to repair damage and stay healthy. The vital role adult stem cells play in both health and disease is one of the greatest health discoveries of modern times. As we age, our stem cell production from bone marrow declines. This is one of the causes of aging. Exposure to various environmental and dietary toxins, stress, oxidation, inflammation and hormone decline are causes of aging as well.
The decline of adult stem cells can lead to un-repaired damage in virtually any body part. It can also lead to tissue breakdown, aging and loss of health. Without active and vigorous adult stem cells, good health is compromised long-term. Scientific anti-aging research shows adult stem cell release rates from the bone marrow drop at an astonishing rate as we age.
The percentages are as follows:
- 35 years – the stem cell release rate drops by 45%
- 50 years – the stem cell release rate drops by 50%
- 65 years – the stem cell release rate drops by 90% (leaving only 10% of adult stem cells circulating in the blood stream and this is when we need them the most to fight disease, sickness, and just plain ‘GETTING OLD”!
A baby has adult stem cell circulation of 100% in their blood stream. When a child fractures a leg or has injuries and illnesses, they heal and repair quite rapidly because their system of adult stem cell release into the blood stream is functioning at optimal levels. As we age, everything slows down. It takes a longer time to get over coughs and colds, heal cuts and scrapes, and eventually get out of bed in the morning. One reason for this is our adult stem cells are not released as efficiently from the bone marrow as we age. Like a car or any other piece of equipment, our bodies begin to wear out over time. Stem cell nutrition is a way to maintain optimal health over time by maintaining optimal stem cell function like a younger person.
The good news is that it’s not too late to combat the aging process. Your own adult stem cells will fight the “look old … feel old” war. Have you ever noticed the length of time it takes for a cut or bruise to heal now compared to when you were a teenager? You heal slower because you have less healthy adult stem cells circulating in your system now compared to when you were younger.
How does an increase in the number of circulating stem cells lead to optimal health?
Circulating stem cells can reach various organs and become cells of that organ. This helps the organ regain and maintain optimal health. Recent studies have suggested that the number of circulating stem cells is a key factor for optimal health. Higher numbers of circulating stem cells ensures a greater likelihood that the body will have the ability to heal itself. Scientific interest in adult stem cells has cantered on stem cells having the ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely. Stem cells can also generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate. This allows the potential for the stem cell to regenerate the entire organ from a few cells.
