Stem cells enhancement may help you to repair and regenerate!!
Stem cells are specialized cells with two specialized functions: self renewal by creating cells of same type, and differentiation by creating different cell types.
Stem cells are unspecialized cells which give rise to specialized cells. In other words, all other cells in a developing body stem from these cells. Stem cells can renew themselves by cellular division and can also differentiate into other cells. In the early stage of an embryo, stem cells are pluripotent, meaning that they can develop into any cells. From birth onward, stems cells become multipotent, meaning that they can only develop into certain designated cell types.
Many stem cell types exist. Found in blood, bone marrow, and umbilical cord, hematapoetic stem cells are stem cells which can differentiate into blood cells. Found in bone marrow, fat, umbilical, and umbilical cord, mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into bone, cartilage, muscle, and fat.
Stem cells most likely are found in the lining of tiny capillaries throughout the body.
With aging, the number and functionality of stem cells decline, and the rate of destruction and wearing out of stem cells increases. As such, stem cells cannot be produced in sufficient quantity and quality compared the rate of destruction, cellular function eventually declines progressively.
Is aging of stem cells the only reason for our aging?
The causes of aging are numerous, ranging from genetic to acquired causes. Only a handful of causes can be clinically treated. These include lifestyle, detoxification, antioxidant, free radicals, chronic inflammation, hormonal imbalance, decreased immunity, decreased DNA repair, and ultimately stem cell decline. Consequently, the ultimate result of accelerated aging is, of course, DNA aging.
Thus, optimized antiaging regimen requires treatment of multiple causes, not just stem cells.
Source of Stem Cells
Adult stem cells are harvested from adult blood, bone marrow, and fat, whereas neonatal stem cells are harvested from umbilical cord blood and umbilical cord tissue.
Pure stem cell products containing only stem cells are derived from umbilical cord blood. The preparation is processed and manipulated by pharmaceutical companies in FDA approved facilities. These products are pure stem cells and are considered as drugs. Currently, the only FDA approved pure stem cell product is for certain blood diseases.
Products containing both stem cells and non-cellular components can be derived from one’s own tissue of blood, fat, and bone marrow. The preparation is processed by doctors in under clinical protocols in clinic or hospital settings for same day injection. The preparations contain both cellular and non-cellular components. These preparations are considered as grafts and not drugs. Since adult cells are aged, both the quality and quantity of preparation are less.
Products contain both stem cells and non-cellular components can also be derived from neonatal placenta and umbilical cord. The preparation is processed by laboratories under FDA guidance in FDA approved facilities for subsequent storage and injection. The products also contain both cellular and non-cellular components. The products are also considered as grafts and not drugs. Since neonatal cells are very young, both the quality and quality of preparation are greatly enhanced.
Are stem cells considered as drugs?
Biological products are not considered as drugs by the FDA when they:
1.Have no significant manipulation
3.not combined with ingredients other than FDA approved list
4.do not have systemic effect and are not dependent on cells
How do stem cells work?
Stem cells primarily restore, repair, regenerate, and rejuvenate.
When disease, injury, trauma, or inflammation occurs, the damaged sites typically have a low oxygen environment. At these damaged sites, the micro blood vessels become sickened and release biochemical signals to attract the stem cells to come to help.
Stem cells will then become activated and “home” into these disease sites to restore, repair, and regenerate. When stem cells are injected intravenously, the majority of the cells ends up in the lungs but a minority still seem to be able to home in and target the whole body for multiple disease sites. Alternatively, when stem cells are injected into or near a localized disease site, these cells seem to concentrate on that particular damaged area.
Even though injected stem cells may stay at the disease sites for a very short period of time for about two days, stem cells exert a tremendous degree of healing power. When attracted to these disease sites, these stem cells secrete celluar elements of potent biochemical signals to activate other cells and recruit more local stem cells. In turn, more numerous biomolecules are made. Injected stem cells also stimulate the local stem cells to regenerate into needed cells to replace the damaged cells to heal.
Stem cells functions are optimized by laser stimulation, antoxidant energization, cytokines enrichment, free radical reduction, hormone replenishment, and improved DNA repair.
What are Cytokines?
Cytokines or growth factors are interchangeable terms which describe signaling biomolecules derived from cells or cellular components. These biomolecules provide biological signalings to secreting cells, neighboring cells, and even remotely located cells.
Cellular elements of exosome, cytokines, and growth factors
Cellular released elements such as exosome, cytokines, and growth factors are potent protein biomolecules produced upon stimulation by a broad range of cells and exert tremendous effects on cell signaling. These factors heal damage, reduce inflammation, control the immune system, promotes growth, stimulate microcirculation, and participate in tissue engineering.
In essence, the ultimate benefits of stem cells may be the potent bioactive molecules released by stem cells. More and more recent research have demonstrated that cellular derived elements, the potent signaling cytokines and bioactive molecules, rather than the cells themselves, may be responsible for the reparative and regenerative capacity.
As such, umbilical cord extract, autologous blood stem cells and fat stem cells all contain these specialized reparative, regenerative, immune modulating, growth stimulating, microcirculation stimulating, and anti-inflammatory healing cellular elements.
What is the safety of stem cells?
For the past three decades, stem cells rich bone marrow has been used in nearly ninety diseases, and umbilical cord blood has been used for blood derived cancers. These treatments have been safe and effective, without significant stem cell related diseases or cancers.
In select settings, stem cells have also been used to treat:
1.Skin: acceleration of wound repair and healing
2.Cosmetic: hair loss, tissue engineering
3.Cardiovascular: heals damaged heart
4.Immunity: regulates the immune system
5.Respiratory: improves respiratory function
6.Metabolic: normalizes blood sugar
8.Improves liver/kidney function
9.Neurological: cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease,
10.Musculoskeletal: osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, injury
11.Eyes: diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration
12.Sexual function: improves sexual functions
How to compare the stem cell products?
1.Realize that stem cells function best when other body function are optimized. As such, when only stem cell preparation is given, the effects can be short-lived, minimal, unnatural, imbalanced, and requiring very high cost and dosages. The factors which need to be optimized simultaneously include exercise, diet, sleep, stress reduction , antioxidant and free radical levels balancing, detoxification, hormonal balance, cytokines and growth factors, and DNA repair.
As such, a patient can choose to receive only stem cell injection, or a more comprehensive approach to stem cells.
2.Recognize the difference between adult and neonatal preparation of stem cell products. Recall that neonatal products have much younger cells and thus both the cellular and non-cellular component have significantly higher functionality and capability.
3.Determine local versus antiaging effects desired. For local repair, non-celluar components of scaffolding proteins and extracellular matrix are important. For anti-aging, live cells are important. For growth, cytokines and growth factors are essential.
4.Request a certificate of analysis for laboratory preparation to determine FDA registration, compliance, live cell count, and CFC(colony formation unit) count.
5.Review before and after diagnostic testing to see results of all anti-aging treatment to examine objective improvements.
Umbilical Stem Cells
What do living placenta and umbilical cord contain?
Umbilical and umbilical cord tissue provides both protection and nourishment. Umbilical and umbilical cord numerous highly powerful bioactive molecules and stem cells, which all can aid repair of the body.
Residing inside the umbilical and cord, stem cells help to repair, regenerate and rejuvenate the body. These cells have not acquired genetic markers and thus are immune from rejection by both the mother and other recipients. These cells can home in to areas of disease, seed targeted areas, and begin renewal, differentiation, and repair. These cells can also secrete numerous potent signaling cytokines to promote differentiation, reduce inflammation, stimulation one’s own stem cells, and control the immune system.
How are umbilical cord stem cells different from adult stem cells?
Adult stem cells derived from one’s bone marrow or fat. The functionality of these aging cells is much lower than the young umbilical umbilical cord stem cells. Compared to adult stem cells, these young perinatal stem cells are much more capable of regeneration and repair. For example, stem cells at birth are capable of making 1 billion stem cells in one month, whereas adult stem cells at age 60 can only make 200 cells every month.
How is umbilical cord extract prepared?
Umbilical Cord Extract uses human umbilical amnion and cord extract in flowable fluid form.
Umbilical cord and amniotic tissue are obtained from umbilicals during cesarean section from health screened and tested mothers, processed into flowable fluid extract, with growth factors and/or cells extracted and frozen with liquid nitrogen to -196 degree Celsius to preserve stability. The extraction process maximizes stem cell function and viability A stabilizer called DMSO is subsequently added as a cryoprotectant. Individuals with known sensitivity towards DMSO should not use tissue prepared containing DMSO.
Umbilical cord extract contains specialized reparative, regenerative, immune modulating, anti-inflammatory, growth promoting, microcirculation stimulating, and stem cell stimulating healing signaling cytokines and cells.
Biologic tissue are collected, processed, screened, tested, stored, and distributed I compliance with all FDA regulations concerning HCT/Ps. Despite all these safety measures, no claim of complete safety and biological properties can be made. As such, occurrence of complication can include but is not limited to transmission of communicable disease, transmission of infectious disease, and/or immune or allergic reaction to implanted or injected biologic product.
Umbilical cord extract is sourced at Utah Cord Bank. Each cc of umbilical cord extract contains about 7.4 million live cells and hundreds of types of bioactive molecules.

Before treatment, adequate hydration and nutritional intake are required. One hour prior to laser starting, natural photosensitizer antioxidant compounds can be given orally.
Subsequently, laser stimulated and antioxidant energized micronutrients are administered intravenously.
While the antioxidants are administered, low level laser of multiple wavelengths is used both to amplify the powerful antioxidant effects, cleanse and energize the blood cells. The laser is administered intravenously via the intravenous catheter.
Stem cell preparation may be given next. There are several methods.
1.Umbilical Cord extract, without laser stimulation, antioxidants, and autologous blood stem cell enrichment, is injected intramuscularly, subcutaneously, and/or intravenously.
2.CordStem, the laser stimulated, antioxidant energized, and autologous blood stem cell enriched umbilical cord extract is injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously.
3.BloodStem, the laser stimulated, antioxidant energized, and autologous growth factor enriched blood stem cells are injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously.
4.Alternatively, LipoStem, the laser stimulated, antioxidant energized, and autologous blood stem cell enriched fat stem cells are injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously. In a surgical center, liposuction is performed under local anesthesia to remove about 200 cc of fat. This fat is then processed with specialized equipments to fractionate to produce a stromal vascular fraction containing the fat stem cells. LipoStem is the then produced by laser stimulation, antioxidant energization, and autologous blood stem cell enrichment.
Treatment consists of a basic package of sessions of laser stimulated and antioxidant energized micronutrients, with sessions of laser stimulated, antioxidant energized, and autologous stem cell enriched umbilical cord extract injection (CordStem), blood stem cells(BloodStem), or fat stem cells(LipoStem).
