Aging & Stem Cells

 The Process of Aging 

From the minute we are born we start to age.

Something about Stem Cells


What is the Purpose of Stem Cells? 

These are cells that produce fresh cells in all of you tissues and replace old and damaged cells as you age

There are two categories of stem cells :

  • Embryonic – these are the cells that exist at time of conception, as an embryo, fetus and new born baby . These are known as pluripotent meaning they have the potential to become any type of cell.
  • Adult – these are stem cells that continue to be produced throughout youth and adulthood. They are known as multi-potent and their fate is sealed meaning they can only become what they are programmed to become ie neural stem cells, mammary stem cells, mesenchymal (MSCs) stem cells that become skin cells
