ADULT STEM CELL NUTRITION: Providing Not Just a Whimper of Hope but a Real Revolution

At approximately the age of 35 the body starts to break down at a more rapid rate. Recovery from injury takes longer, cholesterol levels start to rise, as does the blood pressures, hair begins to grey and fine lines set in. Your cancer risk increases as well. If you are not leading a preemptive style approach to maintaining optimal health, you begin to collect health conditions. One of the reasons for this decline in health is the reduction in the release of adult stem cells into the blood stream, a supply which is readily available in your very own bone marrow.

Stem cell research is considered a controversial subject because often times it appears to go against nature. The greatest point of contention involves embryonic stem cell lines - those cells which are harvested from human embryos. Granted this type of cell has the remarkable ability to evolve into any type of cell needed in the human body (known as pluripotent capabilities), the harvesting of these pluripotent cells is controversial because one life has to end for another to benefit from the use of their cells. This is not the case with regards to adult stem cells (ASCs). As research continues on all aspects of stem cells, it is becoming increasingly apparent that we do not have to take a complicated and controversial approach to medically advance ourselves. Recent results have given us reason to be hopeful that adult stem cells also have the ability to become nearly any type of cell in the body.

What exactly are stem cells?
Stem cells are primal cells they are in essence the very beginning of life. When a sperm unites with the egg, the very first cell created is a stem cell. Also known as master cells a stem cell has the ability to differentiate into other cell tissue types. This ability allows the stem cell to become many different types of cells as needed by the body and, therefore, act to support optimal organ and tissue function. Is your heart in need of repair, skin, eyes, liver, stomach, brain? Studies now have demonstrated ASCs have the ability to act as a repair system, rebuilding and restoring healthy functions and replenishing other cells as long as the organism is alive. This potential is reinventing the way we treat and prevent disease.

Introduction to Stem Cell Nutrition
The National Health Institute lists seventy-four treatable diseases using ASCs in therapy - an invasive and costly procedure of removing the stem cells from one’s bone marrow (or a donor’s bone marrow) and re-injecting these same cells into an area undergoing treatment. For example, this procedure is sometimes done before a cancer patient undergoes radiation. Healthy stem cells from the bone marrow are removed and stored, only to be re-inserted after radiation into the area of the body in need of repair. This is a complex and expensive procedure, not accessible to the average person. However, there is now a way that every single person, no matter what their health condition, can have access to the benefits of enhancing their body’s innate ability to repair every organ and tissue using stem cell nutrition.

StemEnhance is the very first product of its kind, creating a category of nutritional products known as "stem cell enhancers". StemEnhance’s method for enhancing stem cell trafficking” is protected by U.S. Patent #6814961 granted to Stem Tech Health Sciences Inc. of Klamath Lake, Oregon, USA and a second patent is pending.

Dr. Christian Drapeau has been pioneering the research for the past two decades on the key nutrient in StemEnhance, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) responsible for the release and migration of millions of adult stem cells. AFA is fresh water, edible species of blue-green algae known to be one of the oldest and most nutritious foods on the planet. This simple organism is complete nutrition in its most basic form, providing the building blocks of health. Not only does StemEnhance promote the rapid release of stem cells from the bone marrow but it increases their ability to get to the damaged tissues that need them most by perfecting their homing mechanism. Although AFA grows in many other areas of the world the biomass accumulating in Kalamath Lake is unique in both its abundance and purity and this is the location of harvesting for StemTech’s fresh supply of AFA.

When you take two capsules of StemEnhance, the ingredients help to support the release of millions of stem cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. The L-Selectin ligand found in StemEnhance blocks the receptors on your stem cells that keep them anchored in your bone marrow, therefore allowing them into circulation. These results were demonstrated in a triple blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study conducted by Dr. Christian Drapeau. The results were quite dramatic. Volunteers rested for one hour before establishing baseline levels. After the first blood samples, volunteers were given stem-enhancers or a placebo. Thereafter, blood samples were taken at 30, 60 and 120 minutes after taking the consumables. The number of circulating stem cells was quantified by analyzing the blood samples using Fluroescence-Activated Cell Sorting. Consumption of stem enhancers led to an increase in the number of circulating stem cells, while consumption of the placebo did not lead to any statistically notable effect. Within 60 minutes of consumption, a 25 to 30% increase adult stem cells was measured, or approximately 3.5 million in additional circulating stem cells. This study confirmed that StemEnhance effectively supported the release of stem cells from the bone marrow. Through a natural process, those stem cells then travel in the bloodstream to areas of the body where they are most needed.

Migration of AFA to Distressed Sites
Recently, extensive research was performed by the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, Canada, led by Dr. Gitte S. Jensen, on the effect of AFA on the immune and endocrine systems, as well as general blood physiology. The results were remarkable. It was discovered that consuming AFA had a profound and unique effect on natural killer cells. The results were published under the title; Effects of the Blue Green Algae Aphanizomenon flos-aquae on Human Natural Killer Cells,” Chapter 3.1 of the IBC Library Series, Volume 1911, and Phytoceuticals: Examining the health benefit and pharmaceutical properties of natural antioxidants and phytochemicals.”
The results were as follows:
Within two hours after eating 1.5 grams of AFA, an average of 40% of the blood natural killer cells (one billion) left the bloodstream and migrated into the tissues. They further discovered that in some cases the natural killer cells remaining in the bloodstream had two to three times as many adhesion molecules as they did before the AFA was consumed. After a few hours, the natural killer cells returned to the bloodstream.
Additional Health Benefits Attributed to AFA
The health benefits of AFA have been reported for more than two decades, however, it is only recently that science has fully explained the mechanisms by which AFA acts on the body. The following are a few of the most notable benefits attributed to AFA:

1) stimulates the release of stem cells from the bone marrow and, therefore, stands as an unequaled natural products for regeneration and healing

2) stimulates the migration of natural killer cells, a type of lymphocyte involved in eliminating cancerous and virally infected cells, offering powerful immune support

3) an excellent source of highly bioavailable Omega-3 fatty acids, carotenoids and chlorophyll which promotes a healthy heart and benefits the treatment of ADD

4) contains phycocyanin, the blue pigment, which helps prevent inflammation and pain and protect the body against heavy metal toxicity and pesticides

5) significant source of phenylethylamine (PEA), known to increase mental alertness, concentration, elevate mood and alleviate depression and symptoms of ADD

6) rich source of vitamins and minerals.

What can StemEnhance do for you?
StemEnhance is not a product based on anecdotal evidence (although the remarkable stories are rapidly accumulating) but rather a body of collected evidence. Everyone is different so the stories are both dramatic and varied. The body knows what it needs as do these master cells. People who have difficulty getting around due to joint pain are regaining their ability to walk as cartilage is being repaired. Patients with MS and Parkinson’s are finding accumulated damage is being repaired and symptoms are lessening. It is helping people improve their vision because adult stem cells are involved in eve health. One woman who used to be plagued with frequent migraines has not had a single one since starting StemEnhance. Additional stem cells circulating in the body can support the repair of heart muscle, the liver, digestive system, and most definitely the skin and brain function. The results can be quite extraordinary. In essence, StemEnhance can make you look and feel years younger in as little as one month. In fact, the company offers a 100% thirty day unconditional money back guarantee. If you do not feel your health improved after one month of taking StemEnhance, you could request a full refund of your money. The odds of attaining optimal health have never been this good.
