Types of Stem Cells
Stem cells: they stand at the crossroads of biology and miraculous existence, serving as the foundational cells for the human body. These cells possess the power to give rise to a virtually infinite number of new, healthy cells, and yet they are vastly unappreciated – that is, until now.
Your stem cells make up your body’s internal repair system, carrying out processes necessary for you to live healthfully and happily. Every single day, stem cells are faithfully working to repair injured or diseased tissue and replace damaged cells.
As humans, we have spent untold time and money on discovering the secrets of regenerative wellness; as it turns out, we have carried the keys to unlocking optimal wellbeing all along, in the form of our stem cells.
Types of Stem Cells
All stem cells have the capacity for self-renewal (copying themselves to create more cells of the same type) and differentiation (developing into other, more specialized cells). But beyond these two shared qualities, there are many variances in what the different types of stem cells can do and when they can do it.
Embryonic stem cells (fetal stem cells)
During the process of normal fetal development, embryonic stem cells are the foundation for a myriad of specialized cells to form a complete human body. Embryonic fetal cells are unique in that they are pluripotent, which means that they are able to give rise to every type of cell contained within a fully-formed body. However, when they are extracted in a laboratory setting, differentiation is halted, and their embryonic properties are preserved.
There are many moral issues associated with embryonic stem cells. Not only does the collection require the embryo to be taken before it has matured, but it can also put the mother’s life in danger. Achieve Vitality would never use these types of cells.
Amniotic fluid and placental stem cells
Extracted from the amniotic sac and placenta, respectively, these stem cell types are not generally useful for therapeutic purposes. Because they contain a high concentration of cellular debris and cannot be verified via a stem cell count, amniotic and placental stem cells are typically reserved for research only.
Autologous stem cells
Autologous stem cells are challenging to source from the human body, and they appear to be far less effective at self-renewal. An invasive surgical process is required to source adult stem cells, and the results are generally insubstantial.
Infiniti Stem Cells (umbilical cord stem cells)
Between a mother and her unborn child, the umbilical cord is a life-providing connection, so it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that umbilical cord stem cells are the most promising of all. The collection is completely safe, conducted via a simple and fast process that allows the cells to be used for Infiniti Cell Therapies.
With unsurpassed regenerative abilities and an incredible capacity for combating inflammation, Infiniti Cells have the potential to be one of the greatest breakthroughs in regenerative wellness.
Explore the Possibilities of Infiniti Cell Therapy
With a better understanding of the different kinds of stem cells, it’s easy to see why Infiniti Stem Cells have become an exciting topic for researchers and wellness advocates alike. Achieve Vitality is a leading provider of Infiniti Cell Therapy, opening a new door to enhanced wellbeing with advancements in regenerative wellness.
