Why should you store your stem cells now?

Your young stem cells are uniquely valuable to you. They can be used to fight disease and have the potential to be used in anti-aging therapies in development. However, as we age, the number and quality of these stem cells diminish. Storing your stem cells now for future reintroduction may help you live a healthier, longer life.

What Is the Best Age to Have It Done?

When is the best time to plant a tree? The answer is 20 years ago, or at least in the past. The same is true with your stem cells. Unlike wine, your cells do not get better with time. Cellular senescence continues throughout one’s lifetime. Our youngest patient was 21 years old and our oldest was 68. It would be more advantageous to have access to your own 21-year-old stem cells. That said, your 68-year-old cells could be a boon to your 80-year-old self. In short, the sooner, the better.

Fighting Disease

The clinical use of bone marrow stem cells is fast expanding. In fact, there are over 500 clinical trials using the cells we collect to fight age-related disease, including heart disease, osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis, kidney failure, stroke, autoimmune diseases, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and many more. You can think of stem cell banking as a way to ensure you have access to the treatments of tomorrow.

Living a Healthier Life

We have all witnessed the people we love getting older. Often, they’re more prone to disease due to a weakened immune system and they’re more prone to injury due to declining bone density and vasculature. Bone marrow is a wellspring for stem cells that replenish your blood, bone, immune system, and other vital tissues. Research suggests the decline in the number and viability of these stems cells plays a role in the physical decline associated with aging. If you could have access to your younger stem cells later in life and could expand and reintroduce them, it’s possible that you would then have younger bones, younger blood, and a younger immune system. You could have a biologically younger body.

Having More Quality Time

What if you could expand your healthspan, not just your lifespan? Due to medical advancements, humans are living longer than we have ever lived. However, though we are living longer, we are not necessarily living better. Not many people would opt for more years if it meant chronic illness and dementia. What if you could live longer and maintain your health?

Young bone marrow stem cell transplantation has been used to extend lifespan in mice while increasing their bone density. This technology may translate to humans. However, to have access to young, genetically-matched stem cells for the future, you need to store yours today.

What is the Procedure Like?

It is a 15-minute, painless, out-patient procedure. Most clients return to work the same day. If you have any questions about the procedure or would like to be put in touch with someone that has banked their stem cells, reach out to founders@foreverlabs.com, and they’ll be happy to answer your questions and put you in touch with someone that’s had the stem cell collection.

Remember, your stem cells will never be as young as they are right now! Learn more by checking out this video.
