STEM CELL BREAKTHROUGH BY
The recent advances in stem cell research were listed as one of the most significant health-related stories in the past 25 years by CNN, second only to the complete mapping of the human genome.
Stem cells are in the news daily. A Google search for stem cells produced 59,400,00 results. Stem Cell Therapy has been shown to improve Heart conditions, Parkinsons Disease, Diabetes, Brain trauma, Stroke recovery.1 The number of diseases which could potentially be treated with stem cells is large and the list continues to grow.
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT STEM CELLS?
We all have stem cells but few of us know much about these small wonders.
Stem cells are the raw material from which all other cells can be made. The release of stem cells from the bone marrow and their migration to tissues is a natural process that happens every day. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells with the amazing ability to duplicate endlessly and transform into any type of cell in the body. Heart cells, brain cells, muscle and blood cells, to name a few, can all be generated from these powerful building blocks.
It had long been believed that embryonic stem cells alone had the capacity to become any cell in the body while adult bone marrow stem cells were limited only to the renewal of blood cells, bone and connective tissues
Christian Drapeau, Canadian author,2 research scientist and neurophysiologist, (McGill University) devoted many years studying the aqua botanical Aphanizomenon flos-aqua or AFA and its apparent health benefits.This small single celled water plant grows naturally in Klamath Lake ,Oregon. The volcanic springs and mineral rich waters are fed by the snow melt from the surrounding Cascade Mountains providing perfect conditions for the organic life-giving food to thrive. The AFA algae is harvested only at peak times of optimal growth, when it is the healthiest and most vibrant. It is then dried to preserve natural enzymes, over 64 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids.
Scientific research showed that AFA boosts the immune system- helps NK (natural killer) cells to seek and kill germs and viruses 3, promotes attention and improves concentration, supports cardiovascular health and promotes memory. The phycocyanin pigment present in the AFA has been shown to have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Drapeau began intensive research to examine this phenomenon. Initial results led Drapeau and colleague Dr Gitte Jensen to hypothesize the intriguing theory that adult bone marrow stem cells had the ability to become any organ or tissue cells and that isolated extracts of AFA triggered a significant increase in the number of circulating adult bone marrow stem cells.
In 2002, their theory was published in Medical Hypotheses.4 Other scientists worldwide continued to publish research that further strengthened what Drapeau and Jensen believed they had discovered.
In 2004, a U.S. Patent 5 was assigned to Desert Lake Technologies (DLT) where Christian Drapeau was Director of Research. This natural stem cell enhancing extract StemEnhance TM was tested in a double blind, crossover placebo controlled study and was shown to boost stem cell release by nearly 35%. One gram created about 3 million new circulating stem cells.
MORE STEM CELLS = GREATER HEALTH
Recent studies suggest that the number of circulating stem cells is a key factor in cardiovascular health. 6 The higher the number of circulating stem cells the greater is the ability of the body to heal itself. Other studies have indicated that simply releasing stem cells from the bone marrow can help support the body’s natural process of renewal of tissues and organs.
As we age, the ability to regenerate new stem cells begins to slow down. As the supply of fresh stem cells diminishes, so too does the body’s ability to repair damage to organs and tissues that become diseased or non functional.
Just as antioxidants are important to protect your cells from “free radical”damage, stem cell enhancers are equally important to support your stem cells in maintaining proper organ and tissue function in your body. Taking stem cell enhancers, tips the balance towards optimal health by supporting the body’s natural renewal system.
Drapeau & Jensen’s breakthrough natural botanical extract StemEnhance TM is the very first product on the market from the latest phtyoceutical product category called Stem Cell Enhancers.
By helping your body to help itself, the implications of this new stem cell enhancer , for your health and wellness, are profound.
