Resveratrol Provides Health Benefits To Diabetics

August 17th, 2017

Latest clinical study shows resveratrol helps to improve arterial stiffness and reduce oxidative damage in diabetics.

Resveratrol is a polyphenol.  Resveratrol has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  It has been widely publicized for its cardiovascular health benefits and stimulation of the SIRT1 enzyme that is responsible for the growth of new mitochondria (the engines of cells) that increase the metabolic rate, which has been found to aid weight loss, increase endurance and help slow the aging process.

Resveratrol also activates sirtuins, which are the same proteins activated by caloric restriction and exhibits anti-atherosclerotic effects.

According to a study published in July 2017 in the International Heart Journal, researchers demonstrated the intake of resveratrol improved arterial stiffness and reduced oxidative damage in patients with type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This study consisted of 50 patients with T2DM. All participants received either a supplement containing 100 mg of resveratrol or a placebo tablet for 12 weeks.  Researchers assessed body weight, BMI, a comprehensive metabolic panel, HbA1c, lipid profile, oxidative stress markers, blood pressure, and cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI). All patients followed the same diet and exercise routine.

After 12 weeks, the CAVI and systolic blood pressure significantly decreased in the resveratrol group compared to the placebo group. An increased CAVI is associated with cardiovascular disease, stroke and vascular dysfunction, and is a predictor of a future cardiovascular event independent of other traditional risk factors. D-ROMS, which is an oxidative stress marker, also decreased only in the resveratrol group.  Furthermore the study found resveratrol decreased reactive oxygen species production in vascular endothelial cells. Oxidative stress is elevated in chronic disease such as obesity and diabetes.

These results therefore support resveratrol supplementation as a strategy for mitigating arterial stiffness and reducing blood pressure and oxidative damage with patients who have type II diabetes.

Resveratrol is 250 times more effective when taken by buccal and intraoral delivery (absorbed through the oral mucosa (tissues which line the mouth). Its best source comes from Japanese knotweed (also known as polygonum cuspidatum). See reference links below.

All Stem Cell Worx products are delivered by intraoral application (spray in the mouth) and they contain a pure, 99% trans-resveratrol from Japanese knotweed.  For further details click this link:  www.stemcellworx.com

The Secret To Living Longer Is Out AND Living 15% Longer Is Not Far Off

July 31st, 2017

This week, Nature Journal revealed incredible science and research, showing a pea sized component of the brain that contains stem cells is vital to delaying aging and extending lifespan.

This breakthrough shows hypothalamus (a very small part of the brain) controls aging.  The treated mice remained fitter and lived 10-15% longer.

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York are aiming to launch clinical trials on humans shortly.

These stem cells keep a tight rein on aging. As their numbers decline naturally with time or if their function is disrupted, the body’s organs and metabolic processes age faster and death occurs earlier.

“Of course humans are more complex,” said Dongsheng Cai, who led the research. However, humans are likely to respond to the influence of hypothalamus stem cells in just the same way, scientists believe.

Previous experiments had already hinted that the hypothalamus, an almond-sized part of the brain in humans, played some role in the aging process, but what it actually was remained unclear until now.

In the first of a series of experiments in mice, the U.S.A. Team led by Cai showed that neural stem cells, which are found in a handful of brain regions at birth, disappear from the hypothalamus over time. The stem cells are known to form fresh brain cells in youth, but the process slows down dramatically in adults. Though small, the hypothalamus forms a crucial connection between the body’s nervous and hormonal systems.

To test whether the decline in stem cells was causing aging, and not itself a result of old age, the researchers injected mice with a toxin that wiped out 70% of their neural stem cells. The effect was striking. Over the next few months the mice aged more rapidly than usual, and performed much worse than the controlled group on a battery of tests of endurance, coordination, social behavior and ability to recognize objects.  “The mice aged faster when these cells were removed during early aging,” Cai said. The animals died months earlier than the healthy controlled animals.  Also when the stem cells in middle-aged mice were selectively disrupted artificially, it led to “greatly accelerated aging”.

Next, the scientists looked at what happened when aged mice received injections of fresh neural stem cells. This time the mice lived longer than controls, typically several months more, an increase of 15%. If a similar extension was achieved in humans, a person with a life expectancy of 80 years could live to age 92.

Miami Dolphins Quarterback Credits Stem Cells For Healing His ACL Knee Joint

May 31st, 2017
Source: The Miami Herald
By: Armando Salguero

Medical science has for years contended that the knee’s anterior cruciate ligament does not heal by simply regenerating. That’s the reason generations of NFL players have had surgery to repair ACL injuries.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill went another direction, not having surgery but rather choosing to rehabilitate the partially torn ligament and follow that with stem cell treatments. On Thursday, when Tannehill spoke publicly for the first time since the end of the 2016 season, he said his ACL was indeed healed.

“Yeah,” Tannehill said when asked specifically if his ACL had healed, “it’s really strong and ready to go.”
Tannehill discussed the stem cell treatment he underwent which he partially credits for his recovery.

“I did a lot of research and finding options that were available to me and finding what fit,” Tannehill said. “I spent a lot of time researching and talking to people who are familiar with all the different types of treatments. That seemed to be the best fit for the injury that I had.”

“That’s the basic concept. So your blood stream is carrying stem cells to all the injuries you have throughout your body. Your ACL never completely heals because of lack of blood flow and so they’re just artificially becoming the blood stream to carry the stem cells to the location.”

Can Stem Cells Be The Key To Fighting Disease And Living Longer?

February 19th, 2017

When we get sick, it’s common for us to reach for some medicine or maybe even have surgery to deal with disease or pain, but what if you could use your own healthy cells to fight back instead?

Right now, there’s a procedure being performed in metro Detroit where healthy stem cells are stored so they can be reintroduced to your system and potentially have life changing or life saving benefits.

Dr. Michael Schenden is the first plastic surgeon in the US to perform the Forever Labs stem cell collection. He starts by harvesting the bone marrow to save those healthy stem cells.

“They should be available for many, many different medical applications is a wonderful thing,” says Dr. Schenden.

The company behind this procedure is based in Ann Arbor and it’s called Forever Labs.

We’re told about 30 people have decided to store their stem cells this way. Sonja Michelsen is one of them. She had her daughter in her early 40s and felt like storing her own stem cells could pay off in the future.

“I want to be able to be here with her throughout her life,” she says.

She knows there’s no guarantee banking her stem cells will help her in the future, but she sees it as an investment that could pay off if her health takes a turn.

“To have that peace of mind that you do have something to use down the road .. is huge,” she says.

Steven Clausnitzer is CEO of Forever Labs. He says by re-introducing your own healthy cells, you may be able to fight disease in the future.

“There are a number of ways people are already using these cells. Maybe the most promising .. orthopedic surgeons .. are reintroducing them into joints in lieu of surgery,” he says.

Clausnitzer says there are about 500 clinical trials right now that are using stem cells that, one day, may be able to treat everything from osteoarthritis to multiple scleroses to cardiovascular disease.

This kind of stem cell banking is a 15 minute outpatient procedure. It starts with a local anesthetic in the lower back.

He says the number of your stem cells diminishes with age, as does their therapeutic quality.

“My stem cells were stored at 38. I’m going to turn 40 this year. I rest assured knowing I have my 38-year-old stem cells rendered biologically inert. They’re no longer aging .. even as I do,” says Clausnitzer.

Mark Katakowski is president of Forever Labs. He says his research showed him the rejuvenating and healing power of stem cells in animals. He believes it can have the same effect in humans.

He says the best time to store the stem cells is when you’re young.

“There’s a slower decline between 20 and 40 years-old and then it picks up. When you put them in the right place at the right time, they can actually improve recovery in a bunch of therapeutic applications,” he says.

Katakowski says there’s no limit as to how long they can be stored.

Should a person pass away, their stored stem cells would be destroyed unless arrangements have been made for them to be given to a family member.

At this point, the procedure is not FDA approved. The Forever Labs stem cell collection isn’t covered by insurance. It costs around $3,500 to have the procedure done and $250 a year for storage.

The company says it plans to bring the first clinical trials for longevity to market in the next 7-10 years, once there is a large enough differential time between when our first clients stored their cells and can then reintroduce.

It says its goal is that its clientele will be able to participate in the first longevity based human trials utilizing autologous stem cell treatments of healthy individuals.

 

82 Year Old Racing Legend A.J. Foyt To Undergo Stem Cell Therapy

February 15th, 2017

Racing legend A.J. Foyt is hoping to find the “fountain of youth.”

The 82-year-old four-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 told Verizon IndyCar media that he plans to undergo stem-cell therapy to help repair his ankles and shoulder. He will also have stem cells injected into his blood.

Foyt’s body has taken quite a beating over the years. He suffered a broken back during a NASCAR race in 1964 and broken feet and legs during a 1991 IndyCar crash. In 2005, he was stung more than 200 times by bees while trapped under his bulldozer at his Texas ranch. He’s had knee and hip replacements, and in 2014 underwent triple-bypass heart surgery.

Foyt will undergo the therapy in Cancun, Mexico, as the treatment is not available in the United States.

“It used to be you would have to go to Germany to get this procedure, but now it’s available in Cancun and that is probably where I’ll have it done,” Foyt said Saturday during the Verizon IndyCar Series open test at Phoenix Raceway. “I’m not in good health like I used to be and, if my son Larry hadn’t taken over (running) the team four years ago, I would have had to shut it down. It’s something he likes to do and I’m backing him 100 percent.”

“I feel better this year than I did last year,” Foyt continued. “If I get to feeling bad, I probably won’t show up at the race. But I’m going to do that stem cell deal. My wife, Lucy, has been pretty sick lately. Dan Pastorini (the former NFL quarterback) did it and it helped him. Peyton Manning (the former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos quarterback) did it for his neck and it really helped him. Tony Dorsett (the former Dallas Cowboys running back) did it, so I think we should try it.”
