United States of America (Press Release) November 7, 2008 -- StemEnhance from StemTech HealthSciences is the Best Sports Nutritional SupplementsHelping with Exercise & Recovery, Coping with Inflammation, and Helping with Cardiovascular HealthThe Role of Stem Cells in Exercise and RecoveryAsk any physician and they will tell you that exercise is essential to optimal health. What many physicians won’t mention though - especially to non-athletes - is that the key to sustaining optimal health is to balance the breakdown of the body with its renewal. Thanks to years of research, science has now established that the efficiency of your body’s renewal system depends upon your body’s ability to release adult stem cells. In a nutshell, the greater your ability to release adult stem cells the more efficient your renewal system and the better your body’s ability to sustain good health. The body is naturally programmed to balance the breakdown and renewal processes but when it gets out of balance problems can develop. In an athlete, this issue of balance between breakdown and renewal is more complicated. For people who are working to improve their performance in a sport or are working toward competition — even amateur competitions — paying attention to natural renewal is critical. For athletes, it is not enough merely to sustain the body’s health; an athlete’s body also needs extra support for recovery. This is where a patented aqua-botanical concentrate of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) found in a respected clinical study to enhance the body’s natural release of adult stem cells, comes into play. Both “weekend athletes” and reformed “couch potatoes” are doing what is — by all accounts — good for you. Nevertheless, most every one of these people has experienced muscle soreness after exercise or sport. In medical terms, this discomfort is called “delayed onset muscle soreness” (DOMS), and is thought to be a result of microscopic tearing of the muscle fibers. In addition to small muscle tears, there can be associated swelling in a muscle, which may contribute to soreness.The amount of tearing (and soreness) depends on how hard and how long a person exercises and what type of exercise he or she does. In fact, any movement you are not used to can lead to DOMS. The weekend athlete limps in on Monday morning because of these microscopic tears, which cause loss of muscle strength, flexibility and power. As the body repairs these microscopic tears, we become stronger. This is recovery.How quickly and how effectively an athlete’s body can recover affects his/her ability to train without getting injured. This is where the extra support given by the AFA concentrate becomes so valuable for everyone who is exercising to any level. By giving extra support to the body’s natural renewal system, we can support this natural process of recovery from exercise to build strength and stamina.

Please read the following article Stem Cells and the Inflammatory ProcessThe word inflammation comes from the Latin inflammatio, which means “to set on fire.” Most people associate it with skin that becomes red, painful and swollen after they get a bug bite or a splinter. Those are common symptoms of acute inflammation. The inflammatory response is a normal process, and an important mechanism for health; without it, wounds and tissues would not heal. But as with most physiological functions, it is vital that there is a balance. Unfortunately, inflammation that becomes chronic is one of the most troublesome processes in the body.Chronic inflammation causes significant disruption of the normal functions of cells and – unlike acute inflammation – is usually silent, invisible and persistent. We can't see it or feel it, but it can cause a host of health-related problems that plague today’s society. One of the reasons chronic inflammation is such a problem is that it appears to interfere with the ability of your adult stem cells – your body’s natural agents of renewal – to do their job. Scattered chronic inflammation at the cellular level makes it difficult for your stem cells to know where they are needed, because cells everywhere appear to be signaling them. Kind of like trying to hear someone in the middle of a stadium full of people who are all shouting at the same time.Causes of chronic inflammation include the persistent presence of pathogens, environmental pollutants, negative genetic factors and lifestyle, among other things. While not all of these causes are within our control, some definitely are. For instance, lifestyle factors that create inflammation include poor sleep, lack of exercise, chronic stress and an inflammatory diet.Inflammatory diets are those high in saturated fats, trans fats (hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils), margarines, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, dairy products, soda (diet and regular), well cooked red meat, MSG, nuts (except almonds and walnuts), white and brown sugar, and white flours.Anti-inflammatory foods include vegetables (especially dark leafy greens), fish and fish oils, flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, fruit (especially pineapple, mango and papaya), oats, olive oil, brown seaweed and barley.Obviously, you can significantly improve your quality of life by living an anti-inflammatory lifestyle. However, a more practical alternative in today’s helter-skelter world is to take Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) concentrate, which gives extra support to your natural stem cell renewal system. A recently published study showed an increase in circulating stem cells of 25% with just 2 capsules of this AFA concentrate daily.

To exercise and to be healthy you need a good cardiovascular system working for you. Please read the following article to see how StemEnhance can help with that as well.Science Update: Stem Cells and Cardiovascular HealthThanks to a growing body of research, scientists are now recognizing that having more stem cells in one’s bloodstream could be one of the greatest strategies for optimal health. For example, a number of recent studies have shown that a greater number of circulating stem cells equated to greater cardiovascular health. Let’s look at some of these studies in a little more detail so you can grasp the potential benefits of supporting your body’s natural release of stem cells into the bloodstream …In 2001, Vasa et al reported that compared to healthy individuals, people with cardiovascular problems had fewer endothelial progenitor cells (EPC’s) in their bloodstream. EPC’s are a type of stem cells responsible for the development of new blood vessels. The study also demonstrated that the EPC’s isolated from people with cardiovascular problems showed less ability to migrate in tissues. The Vasa group also reported that smokers had fewer EPC’s in their blood.In 2004 Schmidt-Lucke et al measured the number of EPC’s in the bloodstream of 120 individuals (43 controls and 77 individuals at risk for cardiovascular problems) and observed these individuals for ten months. At the end of this time, the authors reported that a reduced number of circulating EPC’s was linked to a poor cardiovascular health prognosis. The next year, in a similar but more extensive study, Werner et al measured the number of EPC’s in the bloodstream of 19 individuals, and observed these individuals for one year. Overall, the people with more circulating EPC’s experienced fewer cardiovascular problems and, conversely, the people who had fewer EPC’s in their blood showed increased incidences of cardiovascular events.Thanks to recent studies, scientists now understand why greater numbers of stem cells in the bloodstream equate to better cardiovascular health. In essence, when a tissue has poor blood circulation, it lacks oxygen. And when a tissue lacks oxygen, it releases compounds that accomplish two specific tasks: 1) attraction of EPC’s into the tissue, and 2) conversion of EPC’s into capillary cells. Therefore, whenever a tissue is lacking oxygen, a process is triggered whereby circulating stem cells migrate to the tissue and contribute to the development of new capillaries. This leads to greater delivery of oxygen and nutrients, thereby helping the tissue maintain better health. When we understand that poor oxygen and insufficient nutrient delivery to organs and tissues are two of the most common underlying causes for a wide variety of health problems, it is clear that increasing the number of circulating stem cells becomes one of the most valuable strategies for maintaining optimal health.Disclaimer: This article is for educational purposes only and does not constitute medical advice.
