Umbilical cord stem cells are derived from the umbilical cords of healthy babies who are not harmed in any way. These cells have the ability to repair, replace and restore every type of tissue in the body. Their long term benefits come from their secretion of growth factors and messenger molecules as well as their anti-inflammatory and immune modifying effects. Their benefits are much improved with the use of Peptide therapies, specific supplements, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and self-care which consists of optimizing sleep, exercise, diet and stress management.
Research to date has shown that Umbilical cord stem cells have beneficial properties that are equal to or greater than those of adipose or bone marrow-derived stem cells which come directly from the patient. This seems to be especially true in autoimmune diseases and neurodegenerative disorders.
Stem cells are used for disorders of and damage to joints, the nervous system, the heart, the lungs and in autoimmune disorders. But we also understand that they help promote the replacement of the very cells we lose as a result of aging. For this reason, stem cells are considered another valuable tool in Anti-aging medicine.
