Whether you are one who likes to start fresh at the change of a year or one who runs with inspiration when it comes, there’s no denying that a fresh start is both regenerating and renewing. With the change of the year, January is a natural time to renew a variety of things. It could be your business plan–if you are an entrepreneur, your wellness–if you are a goal setter, or your commitments–if you are a time manager. No matter what it is, we could all use a little renewing somewhere. In fact, when it comes to health, renewing is a must and it actually happens regularly in your cells. Your adult stem cells to be exact.
Ok, what exactly are adult stem cells and why should you care that they are renewing? By definition, adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body that multiply through division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Basically, stem cells are just waiting to be assigned wherever they are needed most in your body. It turns out, this need to renew is actually a matter of health and quality of life as each and every one of us need to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. So, let’s look a little more closely at these valuable adult stem cells…
Stem cells are naturally occuring in the body, often referred to as “master cells” that can develop into many different cell types in the body, such as muscle cells, red blood cells, or skin cells. New stem cells migrate to the areas in the body where they are needed most, serving as a repair system for the body. You can consider them the “blank checks” of the healthy body that supports the body’s natural renewal system!
In our youth this system (typically) functions like a well oiled machine or better! But as we age, the process for creating new cells slows. With that, it’s in our best interest to keep these valuable adult cells healthy and happy, but how?
Like many things in life, the answer falls under living a healthy lifestyle. This starts with the foods you eat, when you eat, and the nutrients you provide your body through supplementation. Studies have shown that fasting or cutting caloric intake for short periods of time can help stimulate stem cell production. There is also research that shows that certain foods can support or hinder this renewal process. And, the biggest culprit on the “hinder” list is sugar (not surprising, right?). Skipping the scientific jargon that no one but the professionals understand, in a nutshell, sugar makes it difficult for stem cells to thrive. But what about those nutrients that support stem cells?
Research is showing that foods and ingredients rich in antioxidants and polyphenols are beneficial for stem cell health and production. Let’s look at a few of these foods and ingredients:
Green Tea Extract: Green Tea Extract is rich in antioxidant polyphenols, flavonoids, and catechins, which are thought to be more powerful at halting cellular oxidation than vitamins C and E.
Wild Blueberries & Wild Blueberry Extract: Wild blueberries are naturally high in antioxidants. Studies suggest dietary supplementation with foods high in antioxidants, such as blueberries, can prevent and even reverse cellular and behavioral parameters that decline as a function of aging.
Carnosine: Carnosine is an antioxidant amino acid naturally present in the human body that may delay the natural aging of cells and extend the lifespan of adult stem cells. Research on cellular senescence (the end of the life cycle of dividing cells) suggests that the dietary nutrient carnosine has the remarkable ability to rejuvenate cells approaching death, restoring normal appearance and extending cellular lifespan.
Vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is the type best recognized by our bodies. Recent laboratory studies demonstrate that vitamin D3 has a dramatic effect on stimulating the proliferation of various forms of stem cells, particularly those involved with the immune system.
Organic Wild Microalgae®: A near perfect superfood and rare type of blue green algae, organic Wild Microalgae is nature’s nanotechnology!
