Aging is a natural process. We as humans, usually try to slow down or “cheat” the process by testing a variety of remedies. These solutions may include natural (better diet) and unnatural (plastic surgery) ways. So, researchers are finding ways to use stem cell therapy for anti aging.
What is Aging?
“Aging, growing physiological changes in an organism that lead to senescence. Also a decline in biological functions and in the organism’s ability to adapt to metabolic stress.”
With time, aging takes place in a cell, organ, or entire organism. Therefore, it impacts the ability of organisms in regulating body functions and homeostasis. Similarly, several disorders are linked with aging. Such as diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, and heart and neurodegenerative diseases. Stress, lifestyle, pollution, or exposure to toxins are some of the environmental factors that may speed up aging. Along with environmental factors, epigenetic changes also cause rapid aging. Hence, stem cells might have the ability to reverse or slow this process.
Signs of Aging:
- loss of energy
- reduced vision and hearing
- weaken immune system
- loss of muscle strength
- dry or itchy skin
- hair loss
Stem cell therapy for anti-aging
Scientists are now studying how stem cells in the hypothalamus might play a key role in managing age. Dr. Dongsheng Cai, from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY, with a team of specialists, found that adding fresh stem cells to the hypothalamus can help stall aging. Thus, researchers are now able to find the specific cells responsible for the process. With the present knowledge of stem cells, delaying aging is possible. Similarly, helping in improved health and lifespan.
Mesenchymal stem cells are widely used in curing many diseases. These are adult stem cells, that have anti-inflammatory, self-renewal, and immunomodulatory factors. Therefore, adding new stem cells can repair existing cells in the human body. As a result, allowing our body to reverse some age-related effects. Also, this helps to age more gracefully.
Benefits of Stem cell therapy:
- Increased strength and balance
- Boost Immune system
- Thick hair
- Improve the quality of life
Although, there are many ways to slow down or prevent aging. But as a natural phenomenon, aging cannot be stopped. There are many aspects of aging. Hence, the number of theories about aging. However, not a single theory explains the whole process of aging.
