According to the U.S. government’s National Institutes for Health (NIH), “Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Serving as a sort of repair system for the body, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.”
This revelation has opened up huge opportunities in the stem cell research arena, creating a major frenzy among medical researchers. After all, the number of potential health benefits provided by cells that can become different types of cells when needed is only limited by the size of one’s imagination!
The use of embryonic stem cells is controversial on many levels. But what most people don’t realize is that during recent years, the scientific community’s intense interest in the potential benefits of stem cells has led to many exciting discoveries in a closely related area – that of adult stem cell function.
Under no circumstances should adult stem cells be confused with embryonic stem cells – they are entirely different.
Embryonic stem cells develop in the embryo from a ball of cells (called a “blastula”)
Medical researchers, whose focus is on what to do AFTER someone begins to have health challenges, are working feverishly to overcome the many problems inherent in stem cell transplants, such as the issue of immune rejection.
However recent scientific data shows that greater numbers of the body’s OWN circulating adult stem cells equate to greater health and wellness. And, based on the significant results of a double-blind peer reviewed clinical study, a momentous breakthrough has now been made in this area.
In essence, the study showed that by simply adding 2 capsules a day of a patented concentrate of an aqua-botanical known as Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) to the diet, the number of circulating stem cells was increased by an average of 25%. The health implications of this study are huge, and for those who help get this AFA concentrate into the marketplace the financial potential is extraordinary.
