The cells in your body are alive. Like anything with life, they eventually die. Cell death causes all manner of problems, including inflammation and diseases that ultimately boost the aging process and shorten the human lifespan. Our knowledge of regenerative stem cell therapy means that it can be possible to use FDA-approved stem cell therapies to prevent the most debilitating signs of aging.
Aging is affected by several environmental factors, such as lifestyle choices, stress, pollution, disease, injuries, and toxin exposure. Though, several studies back up the idea of delaying or reversing aging is possible. Aging is driven by epigenetic (non-genetic) influences to gene expression. So, reversing these changes delays aging and potentially increases lifespan. Furthermore, doing so is one of the benefits of stem cells.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
“How does stem cell therapy work?” is the most common question we get. Stem cells repair systems in the body and replace your aging and dying cells to keep you healthy. Stem cell therapy garnered criticism because mesenchymal stem cells taken from umbilical cord tissue are options for stem cells, but this isn’t the only source of stem cells.
Adults have additional stem cells. For example, stem cells are found in fatty tissue and bone marrow, among other sources. We can use stem cells taken from adults as part of our stem cell therapy procedure to reduce inflammation and fight the signs of aging.
How Do Stem Cells Heal Inflammation?
One of the key benefits of stem cells is that they heal inflammation. So, how doe stem cells heal inflammation? It’s down to how stem cells influence white blood cells. Macrophages are white blood cells that make up the bulk of your immune system. There are two types of macrophage cells. M1 macrophages remove infectious and dead cells that trigger inflammation. M2 macrophages actively reduce inflammation.
M1 macrophages are connected to aging while M2 macrophages are connected to anti-aging. So, stem cells convert M1 cells to M2 cells. In turn, this gives your body more tools to actively reduce inflammation instead of just preventing it.
One of the other benefits of stem cells is that stem cells preserve mitochondrial health. As any high school science student knows, the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Stem cells use tunnelling nanotubes to bolster intercellular communication. The system detects the health of cell mitochondria and, when necessary, replaces a damaged or dying mitochondria with a healthy one from a stem cell.
How Do Cells Age?
First of all, the aging process is a complex one. Aging is a natural thing caused by genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle routines. All these factors take a toll on your body. The result of it all is unavoidable health problems. Your cells age as your body does. They can only divide a set number of times and inevitably die. A lack of healthy cell replication is what causes aging. The most common signs of aging are impaired hearing and vision, reduced bone density, reduced muscle mass, increased fatigue, and decreased cognitive function.
Aging causes diseases and other health conditions. Therefore, if we somewhat prevent or hinder the aging process, it would make it easier to manage those diseases. Stem cell doctors can use stem cells to fight against age-related conditions.
Stem Cell Therapy for Anti-Aging
With FDA-approved stem cell therapies, you’re supplying your body with more stem cells to repair and rejuvenate your organs. Stem cells have unique factors that allow them to regenerate cellular tissue and become cells in everything from bones to organs and skin. Stem cell therapy can help repair damaged tissue to keep your body running for longer.
The stem cell therapy procedure sees a patient receive stem cells – either taken from the patient themselves or donated from someone else. Stem cells are kept in frozen storage to preserve their quality and are thawed in a sterile environment prior to administration. The procedure is performed by highly trained stem cell doctors.
After that, the new stem cells aim to replace stem cell reserves gone over the past decade or so. With such a healthy amount of new stem cells, your body can get to work rejuvenating organs and refreshing the body as a whole. In addition to stem cell injections, Personal Cell Sciences also offers a patented topical personalized cosmetic line containing regenerative and growth factors obtained from autologous mesenchymal ASC’s obtained from one’s own fat.
Beyond anti-aging, the benefits of regenerative stem cell therapy can include:
- Increased feelings of vitality
- Increased libido
- Reduced pain
- Thicker, better quality hair
- Increased strength
- Better immunity
- Overall improvement in quality of life
Can Stem Cells Cure Aging?
Given everything we know about stem cells, our Santa Monica doctors can say that stem cell therapy can feasibly delay aging and potentially increase lifespan. Stem cells are vital for preventing aging. Furthermore, stem cells, when combined with natural anti-aging genes, create an effective shield against the signs of aging.
Increased wear and tear of stem cells reserves leads to more cellular damage and enhances the aging process. Additionally, stem cells can be combined with anti-aging genes to prevent cellular aging. Introducing more stem cells to the body through the stem cell therapy procedure rejuvenates existing cells and encourages graceful aging. It may even reverse some of the signs of aging.
It’s impossible to say for sure that stem cells can “cure” aging right now. However, there is certainly enough proof that stem cells slow down the aging process and may reverse it to a point.
