Not all stem cells are created equal. Beyer Stem Cell Institute utilizes umbilical cord-derived stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells from the umbilical cord blood are known to have three very important properties: they help reduce inflammation; modulate the immune system; and secrete factors that helps tissue to regenerate.
Human umbilical cord stem cells have an innate intelligence and activate the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. They seek out inflammation and degeneration. In other words, they give your body a boost of fresh, “day 0”, stem cells to help with regeneration. Our stem cells age with us and we lose a significant percentage over time. That's why as we age, we don't recover as quickly as we did when we were younger.
Umbilical cord stem cells reside in the umbilical cords from healthy newborn babies and healthy mothers. Like all post-natal cells, they are categorized as “adult” stem cells. The umbilical cord tissue is donated by pre-screened and tested healthy mothers and healthy babies in the United States. We abide by the most stringent FDA and medical guidelines.
