Description: Stem cell enhancers are one of the most recent breakthroughs in natural health care. What is it and how can it help you maintain great health? First let's talk about stem cells. Stem cells can be thought of as master cells. You've probably heard in the news about the controversy of embryonic stem cells. Indeed, stem cells are found in human embryos, but they are also found in adult tissue. Adult stem cells are most abundantly found in bone marrow. What they do is to circulate and function to replace dysfunctional cells, thus fulfilling the natural process of maintaining optimal health. In other words, a stem cell is a cell that has the ability to duplicate itself endlessly and to become cells of virtually any organ and tissue of the body. Embryonic stem cells are cells extracted from the very early embryo, which has an exceptional ability to duplicate in a test tube, and to become cells of almost any tissue. Adult stem cells are cells found in an organism after birth. Until very recently, it was believed that adult stem cells could only become blood cells, bone and connective tissue.
