What Are Stem Cells ?
A stem cell is like a newborn cell which has not yet decided exactly what kind of cell it will eventually become. After a male sperm cell fertilizes an ovum (a female egg cell), the rapidly-dividing cells which form the tiny human embryo are all stem cells known as embryonic stem cells.
Adult stem cells are a special kind of "undifferentiated" body cells which have the ability to transform themselves into other specific kinds of "differentiated" cells which form the tissue of an organ such as the heart or liver or brain. In general, a stem cell will be influenced by the cells in its immediate environment and form into the same type of cell, such as a heart cell, liver cell, brain cell, or pancreas cell.
Adult stem cells are most abundantly found in bone marrow, and are sometimes referred to as bone marrow stem cells. A healthy body continuously produces these adult stem cells, which then circulate through the blood stream and function to replace dysfunctional cells, thus fulfilling the natural process of maintaining optimal health.
You may have heard news reports of "embryonic stem cells" being taken from an unborn human fetus, but here we are talking about adult stem cells which are produced in your own body. Because they are your own body cells containing your own DNA, your immune system does not identify them as a foreign organism and then attack and destroy them.
Thus adult stem cells are not affected by the "rejection" problem which often occurs when embyronic stem cells from outside sources have been unsuccessfully transplanted. And the ethical or religious issues associated with harvesting embryonic stem cells from a human fetus are simply not relevant to adult stem cells, because they are naturally created within your own body.
Recent advances in stem cell research were listed as one of the most significant health-related stories in the past 25 years by CNN, second only to the complete mapping of the human genome.
What Are Bone Marrow Stem Cell Enhancers ?
Recent scientific developments have revealed that adult stem cells produced in the bone marrow can travel throughout the body and act to support optimal organ and tissue function. As we get older, our natural production of adult stem cells diminishes, and we start to see signs of aging and less than optimal functioning of our organs and tissues.
Stem cell enhancers are products that support the natural role of adult stem cells in the human body. StemEnhance supports the release of adult stem cells from bone marrow and into circulation throughout the body.
"Stem cells are primal undifferentiated cells which retain the ability to differentiate into other cell types. This ability allows them to act as a repair system for the body, replenishing other cells as long as the organism is alive. Medical researchers believe stem cell research has the potential to change the face of human disease by being used to repair specific tissues or to grow organs."

What Is StemEnhance™ ?
StemEnhance™ is a breakthrough, all-natural, botanical extract that supports wellness by helping your body maintain healthy stem cell physiology. It is the very first product on the market in the exciting and promising new phytoceutical product category known as "stem cell enhancers". U.S. Patent #6814961 for this propietary product has been granted to StemTech HealthSciences Inc. of Klamath Lake, Oregon, USA, and a second patent is pending.
Several clinical studies have been conducted on this stem cell enhancer product, in addition to some in-vitro trials.
StemEnhance™ is not a drug, and is not intended to "treat" or "cure" any disease. It is a natural food supplement derived from a tiny natural freshwater aquatic plant that simply supports your body's own ability to heal itself. This unique plant, a cyanophtya whose scientific name is Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae or AFA, can be harvested in only one place - the mineral-rich waters of Klamath Lake, 1400 feet above sea level in the Cascade Mountains in the state of Oregon, USA.
Upper Lake Klamath is one of the cleanest lakes in the USA, yet the deep layer of sediment at the bottom is extremely rich in minerals because for centuries it has been fed by many mountain streams washing down from the volcanic mountains which surround it. The area enjoys about 300 days of sunshine per year, which provides an ideal growing environment for this remarkable fast-growing and highly nutritious plant.
Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae has never been successfully cultivated commercially, so this tiny, free-floating, underwater plant must be harvested in the wild from the waters of upper Klamath Lake at the peak of the summer growing season. AFA is a highly unusual single-celled organism that has a very high chlorophyll content (about 7 percent by weight) and is extrememly rich in Beta Carotene (Vitamin A precursor). The chlorophyll gives it a very dark green color, thus AFA is known as a blue-green algae.
Yet, unlike all other plant organisms, AFA does not have a cell wall made of undigestible cellulose - which makes the nutrients in AFA more "bio-available" than the nutrients in all other types of algae. Overall, the human body will absorb approximately 95 percent of the nutrients in this algae "super food".
Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae also has a very rich content of high-grade protein (about 70 percent by weight). AFA contains all 22 essential amino acids in the most bio-available form (about 98 per cent bio-available).
And the relative amounts of each amino acid in AFA are so close to the amino acid spectrum which is optimal for the human body, that AFA blue-green algae has been called "the most complete brain food of the world". AFA is also considered the best non-animal source of natural Vitamin B12. And one gram of Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae contains approximately 50% of the daily recommendation (USRDA) for Vitamin K.
The nutritional benefits most often reported by consumers of this Klamath Lake AFA blue-green algae are:
- increased energy levels
- heightened mental clarity
- improved memory and recall
- relief of inflammatory conditions
- an overall feeling of well-being.
Compared to another well-known nutritious blue-green algae known as Spirulina, the AFA Blue-Green Algae has about 40% more Calcium, 100% more Chromium, 275% more Chlorophyll, and five to ten times the Vitamin C content of Spirulina. The assimilation rate of Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae exceeds 95%, while Spirulina is only 50% to 60% assimilated by the human body.
Each 2-capsule serving of StemEnhance™ contains 1 gram of Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae (500 mg. per capsule).
What Benefits Can You Get from the StemEnhance™ Product ?
This natural health product is designed to enhance, by about 25 to 30 per cent, your own body's ability to perform its natural function of releasing adult stem cells from the bone marrow into circulation throughout the body.
The effectiveness of StemEnhance™ as a stem cell enhancer was demonstrated in a triple-blind study. Volunteers rested for one hour before blood samples were taken to establish baseline levels. After the first blood samples were taken, volunteers were given either the StemEnhance™ capsules, or a capsule containing a placebo. Thereafter, blood samples were taken from the test subjects 30, 60, and 120 minutes after taking the capsules. The number of circulating stem cells was quantified by analyzing the blood samples from the test subjects using Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting (FACS).
Consumption of StemEnhance™ triggered a significant 25% to 30% increase in the number of circulating stem cells.

How StemEnhance™ Works
StemEnhance™ is a blend of two compounds extracted from the cyanophyta Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae (AFA). These compounds are carefully extracted in a patented proprietary process which does NOT utilize chemicals or harsh agents.
One extract, which contains an L-selectin ligand, supports the release of stem cells (CD34+ cells) from the bone marrow, which then circulate in the blood stream. The other extract, a polysaccharide-rich fraction named Migratose™, may support the migration of stem cells out of the blood into body tissues.
One gram of StemEnhance™ triggers an average 25 to 30 percent increase in circulating stem cells. The effect lasts for a few hours.
Suggested Serving: 2 capsules taken orally one or two times per day, at least 6 hours apart.
Servings per container: 30 (One serving is 2 capsules, about 1 gram. Each bottle contains 60 capsules.)
One bottle will supply 30 days of typical use, when taking 2 capsules once per day (or 15 days when taking 2 capsules twice per day).

Check, E., Cardiologists take heart from stem-cell treatment success, Nature 428(6986):880, 29 April 2004: "Adult stem cells have long been viewed as less flexible than embryonic stem cells, which can divide to produce any cell type in the body. But recent studies of human cells suggest that adult stem cells can also turn into many cell types, including heart, brain and liver cells."

Live Longer, Live Better!According to Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes, a human body which is receiving proper nutrition is quite capable of dealing with almost any disease - from degenerative disases to those diseases caused by bacteria and virus infections.You may not realize that the human body is constructed to work well for over 100 years! Current estimates indicate that the Baby Boom generation will live to age 100. But how well they will live depends on how well their bodies will work throughout those 35 "golden years" from age 65 to 100.
We could have a long and active life if we would only put as much effort into maintaining our bodies as we put into maintaining our short-lived automobiles! Some people do remain in a healthy and active state well into their nineties; while others are diseased and decrepit (or died of a disease) before they even turn seventy. Does this difference lie within the person's DNA or body chemistry - or does it depend on the person's lifestyle and eating habits?
You do NOT have to accept the common belief that degenerative diseases are just a normal part of getting older. The truly "normal" state of health for senior citizens is "healthy" and "active" - not "diseased" and "drugged"! Which state do YOU really want to be living in?
Think about this... after retirement at age 65 you could live for another THIRTY YEARS - if you take care of your health and nutrition.
To put that into perspective, thirty years is how long you live between ages 35 and 65 - and that's a long time to experience life with all its adventures and pleasures! Would you want to be healthy and active and enjoying life throughout those thirty more years after age 65 - or be sitting and suffering in a wheelchair in some nursing home, taking five different drugs for five different disease conditions?
Now you can consume this miracle food supplement daily, simply by taking 2 capsules of StemEnhance™
