According to a recent study conducted by scientists at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, stem cells may hold the key to replacing the body’s unwanted storage of white fat cells with calorie-burning brown fat cells. The researchers studied the stem cells that typically mature into white fat cells, and, after screening the effects of 1000 compounds on the cells, they found two that stimulate the stem cells to differentiate into brown fat cells instead.
While an alternative method of fat loss could not completely substitute the health benefits of exercise, the ability to produce metabolic change with a patient’s own mesenchymal stem cells would be a breakthrough for regenerative medicine. With further research, such a therapy can be harnessed to treat patients suffering from metabolic disorders such as obesity and diabetes.
As personalized regenerative medicine advances, autologous stem cells will become an invaluable resource to families and individuals who seek to ensure that they will have access to the best in medical care should the need for it arise. One of the most convenient and affordable sources for recovering and banking your own stem cells is dental stem cells.
