While antiaging therapies of all kinds have captured the attention of researchers and the public alike, few are as well-known or enticing as the holy grail of longevity — stem cell activation. Able to become any sort of cell in the body, stem cells offer a unique capacity to rejuvenate and replenish our tissues and organs, literally reversing the damage caused by aging and the wear and tear of life’s trials. Stem cell therapies are now the focus of an immense amount of research and investment — in September this year, the world’s largest public stem cell bank was opened in California — and they are becoming steadily more available to the public. Stem Cell Worx, a vitality-boosting intraoral spray, is one of the foremost of such products on the market and more than worth a look for those seeking more out of their lives.
The evidence for stem cell therapy as an antiaging and longevity aid grows by the minute as research continues around the globe. A study conducted by researchers Korea, published in August, showed stem cell injections not only made rats live almost a third longer than normal but also improved their physical and mental activity levels throughout their lifespans.
Another study in the US saw mice with progeria, a genetic disorder that causes premature aging, treated with stem cells to great results. As their number of stem cells increased, the mice gained size, grew new blood vessels in their brains and muscles and lived longer — up to three times longer in fact.
Although we have known about stem cells for around a century, it’s only in the past few decades that we have truly begun to unlock their potential. One major development in this journey has been understanding that there are three general types of stem cell: embryonic, induced pluripotent (iPSC), and adult, each of which have their own potential benefits and limitations.
Embryonic stem cells are, as their name suggests, derived from embryos. While capable of developing into any sort of cell and thus holding antiaging potential, they also possess a number of limitations:
That said, embryonic stem cell research still shows promise, particularly in the fields of organ replacement and genetic development.
Induced pluripotent stem cells are not true stem cells but regular cells that have been genetically reprogrammed to function in the same way. While this avoids the immunity and ethical issues faced by embryonic stem cell research, iPSC therapy is in its early stages and there are still questions over whether the genetic reprogramming required to create iPSCs could, in very rare cases, also generate cancerous cells.
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found throughout the bodies of children and adults, responsible for repairing and renewing the body’s organs and tissues. Because they aren’t foreign to the body there is no risk of immune reaction, nor is there an ethical issue, and they appear to pose no cancer risk. Their major limitation is that they degrade as we age and they are difficult to grow — which is why much of stem cell antiaging research now focuses on how to improve the function and lifespan of these cells.
Stem Cell Worx Intraoral Spray is a concentrated, natural, and clinically tested nutritional supplement that, as well as providing antioxidant and immune benefits, provides targeted support to your body’s own adult stem cells. By enriching and releasing more adult stem cells, Stem Cell Worx aids the body’s self-repair mechanisms, helping you to maintain optimal levels of health and well-being.
The remarkable antiaging properties of Stem Cell Worx Intraoral Spray are thanks to its ingenious blend of high-quality ingredients. Along with a healthy dose of magnesium, iron and zinc and essential vitamins A, B1, B2, B12 and C, the spray also includes three key compounds: bovine colostrum, trans-resveratrol and fucoidan.
Bovine colostrum is produced by cows for several days after giving birth, and contains up to 100 times the number of antibodies found in regular milk. Providing calves with the strength to survive their first few days outside the womb, it is a potent combination of protein, vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates and immune factors. It is most commonly used by athletes to burn fat and build muscle and by medical practitioners to support patients’ immune systems, kill bacteria and fungus and even aid in the repair of the nervous system.
It is also a notable antiaging supplement: the growth and immune factors present in bovine colostrum attach to adult stem cells in the body, strengthening them and their capacity to successfully reproduce. This counters the age-induced degradation of adult stem cells, allowing the body’s organs and tissues to continue to repair themselves and function much more efficiently — essentially increasing healthy lifespan.
Bovine colostrum has been tested in over 5000 published clinical and laboratory studies and has proven to be safe and effective for a range of therapeutic uses.
Trans-resveratrol, now known as the compound that makes red wine beneficial for health, is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Found in the skin of red grapes, as well as in some berries and Japanese knotweed, trans-resveratrol protects plants from harmful fungus and bacteria. In much the same way, trans-resveratrol can protect the human body, helping to reduce damage to cells from free radicals. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect, meaning it may help reduce blood clots, lowering incidence of heart attack and stroke.
There is evidence to suggest trans-resveratrol may support stem cell growth in bone marrow, particularly the mesenchymal cells, which are necessary for forming healthy bone, cartilage and fat cells.
Through various human and animal model studies, trans-resveratrol has also been associated with a number of other health benefits including:
Fucoidan, found in brown seaweed, a staple in the diets of many coastal populations, has been shown to possess a number of antiaging properties. Research in over 850 clinical trials has demonstrated its potential as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, high blood pressure suppressant, and even as a potential anti-tumor and anti-carcinogenic agent.
Fucoidan, much like trans-resveratrol, also supports mesenchymal cells, and studies have demonstrated its capacity to reduce oxidative stress and promote vascular regeneration. Further, in separate studies, researchers have shown fucoidan may reduce the spread of lung cancer and limit colon tumour growth in mice.
Intraoral sprays have been proven as one of the most effective ways to take nutrient supplements. Sublingual dosing (spraying under the tongue, holding for 5-10 seconds then swallowing) allows up to 95% of nutrients to be absorbed, compared to the 10-20% allowed by capsules and tablets. This is because the sub-mucosal membrane, which sits under the tongue, allows nutrients a direct route into the bloodstream.
The combination of these ingredients and the efficacy of their delivery make Stem Cell Worx Intraoral Spray a remarkably potent antiaging supplement, capable of not only protecting your body’s cells but promoting their innate ability to repair themselves.
By activating adult stem cells through the synergistic effect of immune and protein factors, Stem Cell Worx makes it possible to withstand the effects of aging. Rebuild, restore, rejuvenate and nourish your body and enjoy the freedom of a healthier life.
