|Stem cells in anti-aging and the role of RegAmp™
Despite ageing being a natural and inevitable process for every human being there is still merit to maintaining health and keeping the body as 'young' as possible, both for preventing diseases that are associated with age as well as enjoying the aesthetic benefits of youth. It is known that a decrease in the number of stem cells impacts the ageing of human tissues. Stem cells help to replenish ageing and damaged cells, which serves to maintain healthy and functioning tissues.
The impact of newfound knowledge into the link between stem cells and ageing would likely have an enormous effect on our ability to then manipulate the process and slow down the ageing process. By slowing the ageing process, the development of age-related diseases could be reduced, thereby reducing both the frequency of the diseases as well as the morbidity associated with their onset.
For those focused on the visual signs of aging, including wrinkles, an understanding of the relationship between stem cell therapy and aging had led to treatments to slow the ageing process of the skin. Whether your own personal concerns relate to the aesthetic effects of aging or the effects related to organ health and disease, the correlation between stem cells and ageing is one that we take an active interest in and promote.
Various studies have looked at the correlation of stem cells and aging. One looked at several factors involved in the control of stem cells and aging. The team looked at a specific group of bone proteins known as bone morphogenic proteins. These proteins are heavily involved in tissue development around the body. Researchers discovered that when these particular proteins decreased with age, the stem cells were less able to multiply. This ultimately led to a reduction in the numbers of stem cells present in the body. In addition, when the activity of these proteins increased, the stem cell populations also increased, which further strengthened the connection between stem cells and aging.
On a positive note as we age, inflammation increases throughout the body, especially in areas like the arteries, brain and kidneys. This means that these stem cells, just like other cells in our bodies, are susceptible to the degradation that comes with age. However, we know from treating patients that stem cells are attracted by inflammation, so it makes sense that, if we infuse large numbers of stem cells with RegAmp, we will have improved uptake due to the presence of inflammation in target organs.
