- Combines substances studied for their role in bone marrow adult stem cells.
- Excellent prospects for increasing quality of life and average lifespan.
Stem cell therapy represents both a major medical advance and a great hope in the fight against degenerative conditions for which medicine has so far only provided short-lived or temporary solutions. It is now possible, in some countries, to have injections of adult stem cells extracted from bone marrow, or indeed ‘cultivated' after extraction from adipose tissue, though more generalised application of this method is still some way off, due to its cost and complexity.
Among the nutrients shown to be most active in this area are:
It is this issue that most studies have concentrated on in recent years, and certain researchers have indeed managed - by using nutrients and botanical extracts - to stimulate and increase numbers of adult stem cells in bone marrow. Researchers are focusing on bone marrow as the source of this regeneration activity, as these cells are renewed on a daily basis, producing new lines of red and white blood cells and platelets. Mature cells are then released into the bloodstream to fulfilll their vital, regenerative functions.
Epidemiological studies show that a diet rich in colourful fruits and vegetables, and thus polyphenols, can lower the risk of neurodegenerative diseases such as cognitive deficiency, dementia, Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease. Research has demonstrated that certain natural substances can affect adult stem cells, and as a result, increase neurogenesis and improve cognitive ability. Scientists therefore examined a synergistic combination of extracts of blueberry, green tea, L-carnosine and vitamin D3. When given to rats, this unique combination clearly reduced oxidative stress, and in particular, demonstrated its ability to encourage proliferation of neural stem cells as well as their migration to damaged brain cells (for example, following a stroke).
While stem cells are the subject of extensive study in the field of anti-aging medicine, other approaches have also revealed positive results in combatting the effects of aging. For example, cell metabolism can be stimulated by supplementing with nicotinamide riboside. Scientists have also discovered that damaged DNA can be repaired with the help of certain molecules such as AC-11.

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defenses, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.
Aging is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the aging process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
