StemEnhance Facts - A FAQ on StemEnhance

StemTech Health Sciences was founded in 2005 in order to bring a new breakthrough product technology to the marketplace. This Product is called StemEnhance and is the beginnings of a natural, phytoceutical dietary supplement started as a conceptual theory in the mind of a research scientist at the turn of the century. The following article was created to provide specific information on StemEnhance. Read the FAQ and judge for yourself.

What is StemEnhance?

StemEnhance is a blend of two compounds extracted from the widely consumed aquatic botanical Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA). One extract, which contains an L-selectin ligand, supports the natural release of stem cells (CD34+ cells) from the bone marrow. The other extract, a polysaccharide-rich fraction named Migratose™, may support the migration of stem cells out of the blood into tissues.

What is the science behind StemEnhance?

The effect of StemEnhance on stem cells was tested in a triple-blind study. In brief, volunteers rested for one hour before the first blood sample, which established the baseline level in the number of circulating stem cells. After the first blood samples, volunteers were given StemEnhance™ or 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 Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting (FACS). Consumption of StemEnhance™ triggered a significant 25% increase in the number of circulating stem cells.

What is the recommended dose of StemEnhance?

One gram of StemEnhance™ triggers a significant 25-35% increase in the number of circulating stem cells. The effect lasts for a few hours. The recommended dosage is therefore 2 capsules once or twice day, at least 6 hours apart.

Can StemEnhance deplete the bone marrow? Do we have a finite number of stem cells?

No, StemEnhance will not deplete the bone marrow. The bone marrow constantly produces stem cells for the entire life of an individual. Stem cells released by the bone marrow are responsible for the constant renewal of red blood cells and lymphocytes (immune cells).

A 25-30% increase in the number of circulating stem cells is well within physiological range and does not constitute stress on the bone marrow environment. The amount of active bone marrow amounts to about 2,600 g (5.7 lbs), with about 1.5 trillion marrow cells. A 25-30% increase in the number of circulating cells triggered by the consumption of 1 gram of StemEnhance™ corresponds to approximately 3 million cells, which is a small portion of the cells present in the bone marrow. Stem cells that do not reach any tissue or become blood cells return to the bone marrow.

What happened to stem cells if they do not reach a tissue?

Stem cells released from the bone marrow that do not reach a tissue simply home back to the bone marrow after some time.
