The ‘What’ and ‘How’ of Stem Cells
The restorative functions of stem cells health boost your immunity to fight the degenerative effects of age and heal scars, besides extending your life span and enhancing its quality.
Adult stem cells, primarily found in the bone marrow, the lining of the small intestine, and the layer of fat underneath the skin, can effectively replace damaged tissues and dying cells.
However, the quantitative and qualitative indices of these building blocks of your body deteriorate with age. But, the good news is that you can consciously take steps to support your stem cell health so that these function optimally.
Mind your nutrition
When we talk about boosting adult stem cell growth, nutrition appears as a natural solution because the diet is responsible for healing our bodies.
Loaded with sugar and salts, packaged foods cause cellular oxidization. Moreover, inflammation slows down stem cell activity, hampering their ability to self-renew or segregate into specialized cells.
So, ensure the food that you have is clean and wholesome. Include foods like berries with flavonoids to fight cell damage, cruciferous veggies to boost liver enzymes that eliminate toxins from the blood, mushrooms to detox the liver, and seafood, fatty fish, nuts, and seeds as a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Herbal supplements like spirulina, quercetin, and astragalus also support stem cell health. Bell Lifestyle’s Cell Restore is a safe and unique combination of these herbs and more that helps activate your stem cells naturally.
Stay active to boost stem cell activity
Comparing an active life interspersed with a regular fitness routine vis-a-vis a sedentary lifestyle, the volume of circulating stem cells in the body will be more in the former. Regular strenuous physical activities boost endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) that promote new blood vessels and capillaries, thus improving cardiovascular health. Research suggests that endurance exercise influences adult stem cells to segregate into bone rather than fat cells besides improving muscle health.
Adopt positive lifestyle changes
Smoking and alcohol consumption affects stem cell health. It is proven that non-smokers heal faster and better than smokers do. Regular intake of alcohol causes chronic neuroinflammation and a dysfunctional liver. Further, long-term high alcohol consumption leads to elevated triglycerides that suppress stem cell activities. Thus, quitting cigarettes and minimizing alcohol intake can induce healthy stem cell activity.
Another marker of a healthy lifestyle is adequate sleep, which is necessary to promote the regenerative abilities of stem cells.
Implement these tips to maintain the regenerative and restorative potential of your stem cells.
