Anti-Aging Properties of MSCs

Posted by on Aug 1, 2014 5:54:37 AM

Mesenchymal Stem Cells are able to stimulate muscle-building cells that lose function with age.

A recently published study by University of Illinois Kinesiology and Community Health Professor Marni Boppart has identified mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] as a tool for rejuvenating muscle to prevent age-related injuries and disabilities. In addition to their ability to differentiate into other cell types, MSCs were found to secrete growth factors that stimulate the activation of the multiple cell types comprising skeletal muscle, including muscle precursor cells and satellite cells, which lose function with age.

Muscle precursor cells and satellite cells are directly responsible for the reconstruction of muscle and enhancement of strength after exercise. Over time, however, the loss of function in these cells renders patients vulnerable to injuries and degenerative conditions. Mesenchymal Stem Cells [the same type found in teeth] can reactivate the muscle cells and tissues that have become dysfunctional with age, resulting in the reversal of age-related disabilities, injuries, and declines in muscle mass and function.

Another recent study from the University of Colorado Boulder found that younger stem cells have significantly more regenerative potential than older stem cells. This research shows the importance of preserving your own stem cells while they are still young, so that they can be used later in life. To learn more about the value of preserving your own MSCs [the type of stem cells found in teeth] for use in future regenerative therapies and how to bank your own stem cells through a non-invasive and affordable method by recovering your dental pulp stem cells, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
