Before we dive into the anti-aging effects of Stem Cell Therapy, I have to warn you… it may be a little morbid at times. Hang in there…
As we grow older, we age, and the aging process gradually leads to death. That is a cycle of life that begins at the cellular level. We start aging because our cells become sick, and they die. Our body keeps making new cells to replace the dying cells. However, the rate at which our cells die increases, and the rate of new cells replacing them decreases. It leads to a cascade of events that leads to inflammation and disease that reduces the human lifespan.
Several environmental factors can speed up aging, including stress, pollution, lifestyle, injuries, disease, and exposure to toxins. Scientists have observed that reducing the harmful environmental factors and living an active lifestyle can delay the aging process.
Of course, our cells continue to die as we age regardless of environmental factors and lifestyle, and we cannot stop aging indefinitely. However, we can slow down the natural process through stem cell therapy for anti-aging.
While it is often referred to as “anti-aging,” what we really mean to refer to “age-defying” as the correct term for it because stem therapy does not reverse the effects of aging – it delays the effects of aging. The goal here is longevity, to live longer but also to be healthy as we age.
In this post, we are going to take a closer look at the signs of aging and discuss the “anti-aging”, or longevity, effects of stem therapy. Additionally, we will tell you how Innate Healthcare is innovating stem cell therapy for longevity to provide you with a more effective treatment.
The 10 Signs of Aging
There are many symptoms that begin showing as we age. As our cells continue dying and the rate of regeneration decreases, our cells do not replicate and perform as well as they used to. Gradually, our body begins to age, and it results in multiple symptoms, including:
- Impaired vision
- Impaired hearing
- Decreased immune system function
- Decreased cognitive ability
- Loss of strength in muscles
- Loss of bone density
- Less efficient metabolism.
- Loss of energy
- Hair loss
- Decreased balance and overall mobility
How Stem Cell Therapy Can Help Defy Aging
Stem cells are specialized cells in our bodies that are designed to improve the immune system and restore damaged tissue. Stem cell therapy using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from umbilical cords (UC-MSCs) can counteract inflammation by regulating the immune system and prevent it from going into an aggressive pro-inflammatory state. MSCs also regenerate the damage done by our immune system in the autoimmune attack by secreting healing activators to the surrounding area.
Effectively speaking, the anti-aging effects of stem therapy come from the ability of MSCs to encourage our immune system to remain in an anti-inflammatory state and heal the damaged cells, restoring them far better than they would without the support. The result is a rejuvenating effect that can make a person receiving stem therapy for anti-aging, look and feel younger.
Several studies have observed the anti-aging effects of using MSCs derived from umbilical cord tissue. One study observed [https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30417126/] that topical application of UC-MSCs had an “anti-wrinkle effect and significantly decreased dermal density in women.”
Another study [https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30498696/] observed the effect of MSC stem therapy on elderly individuals. The double-blinded, dose-finding study showed that UC-MSCs is a safe treatment that shows significant physical performance improvements and reduces inflammatory biomarkers.
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the US, and stem therapy is providing promising results to combat it by regenerating and repairing heart tissue.
What to Expect During Longevity Stem Cell Therapy
At Innate Healthcare, we combine the use of UC-MSCs with other treatments to tailor the stem cells to treat specific conditions that our patients face, providing them with more effective results from stem therapy.
Stem cells play a pivotal role in slowing down the aging process. However, we use a personalized approach that involves helping you adapt your lifestyle, diet, and other factors to further enhance the effectiveness of stem therapy to give you a more effective overall treatment.
Some of the results you can expect during our longevity stem cell therapy include:
- Improved quality of life
- Increased vitality
- Decreased pain
- Increased capacity and endurance for physical activities
- Increased libido
- Improvement in hair and skin
- A stronger immune system
How Stem Therapy can Reduce the Effects of Aging
UC-MSCs are the most youthful stem cells that are far better at regulating the immune system, preventing autoimmune attacks, and providing regenerating effects. Stem therapy for longevity involves administering high doses of young MSCs in the best possible route by your doctor.
Before administering the MSCs, we administer large doses of intravenous (IV) minerals, vitamins, and amino acids to prime your body to begin the age-defying process that stem cells can begin. Priming your body makes it easier for the stem cells to bypass through your lungs and for the body to accept it to begin experiencing the age-defying effects.
Advantages of Using Allogeneic Umbilical Cord Tissue Stem Cells
Stem cells are present in your aging body as well. However, they are no longer as effective as they used to be when you were younger. That is the reason why we use UC-MSCs for stem therapy. Umbilical cord tissue-derived stem cells are a more abundant source of MSCs that produce a greater number of youthful and high-quality stem cells.
Using allogeneic (not derived from your own body) stem cells is also possible because stem cells are not rejected by the body when they are administered. Using MSCs also allows us to provide you with the treatment without using any invasive procedures to extract any stem cells from your body.
We can administer UC-MSCs safely and several times to compound their beneficial effects for your body.
