Can you drink stem cells?

A new supplement made from algae claims to aid in the natural release of adult stem cells in the bone marrow By Anne A. Jambora Philippine Daily Inquirer

STEM cell nutritional supplement

Stem cells you can ingest? Not exactly. But this supplement claims it can increase the number of circulating adult stem cells in your body by up to four million. You simply take three capsules a day.

The 30-percent increase, however small compared to the surge of 10-20 million adult stem cells you get from a stem-cell treatment, is significant enough to keep you alert and energized, and even to repair damaged cells in your body, said Bernie Mercado, general manager of StemTech Philippines, the makers of the supplement StemEnhance.

Made from a natural-growing freshwater plant called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), also known as blue-green algae, StemEnhance is said to aid in the natural release of adult stem cells in the bone marrow and support the migration of stem cells to areas where theyre needed, enhancing the bodys natural mechanism of organ and tissue renewal.

Simply put, StemEnhance is an adult stem cell nutritional supplement.

Stem cell treatment enables doctors to focus on a specific organ. Thats not how this supplement works. If you take StemEnhance to make your skin look supple and young, but you also have a kidney condition, it will first repair the area that needs urgent attention. It might take some time before you can see a physical manifestation of its effects, in this case, younger-looking skin. The more damaged the organ, the more stem cells it attracts, Mercado said.

According to StemTech HealthSciences Inc. chief science officer Christian Drapeau, the bone marrow adult stem cells have the ability to become virtually any kind of cell in the body. If you take, for instance, an adult stem cell and put it in the heart, it becomes a heart stem cell; put it in the muscle and it becomes a muscle cell.
