Stem Cells and Skin Care

Stem Cells and Skin Care

The latest skin care must have ingredient is plant stem cells.  Now if you’re asking yourself why exactly you need or want to be using these substances which are technically called meristem cells on your skin, this article is written for you.

So first of all what exactly are “stem cells”?  Well, the simple answer is stem cells are precursor cells.  They are essentially blank cells that can be turned into any other type of cell.  They stay dormant until they are triggered to become specialized.  Scientists refer to them as “pluripotent”.  That means they are potent in many different ways.   Stem cells in other words are like magical raw material “master” cells that be me transformed into bone cells OR skin cells OR brain cells or any other of the 220 different types of biological cells.  That’s pretty cool.  This pluripotent property makes stem cells the ideal raw material for the body to use to repair various organs and tissues in the case of injury, damage or simply wear and tear.  And it makes them potentially very useful for medical treatments that can restore and regenerate the health of bodily systems that contain cells damaged from disease

The skin which is turning over and subject to more damage than most other systems in the body understandably contains large concentrations of stem cells.  Thus manufacturers of skin care products have become intrigued with the use of these elements as for their potential use in skin care products.

The "Truth" About Anti-Oxidants

Anti Oxidants

I get lots of letters.  Mostly they’re honest questions from folks trying to resolve health issues and get back on track with taking care of their bodies, getting off prescription drugs and getting on a good nutritional supplement program.  Sometimes I get positive feedback or kudos encouraging me to carry on with my efforts to wake people up to the power of nutrition.  And sometimes (not too often fortunately) I get letters criticizing my work or the positions I take on health care, prescription drugs or vitamin and mineral supplementation.  Yesterday, I received a note that falls into that last category from a gentleman in Texas that referenced a story that appeared in the mainstream media questioning the health benefits of anti-oxidant type supplements.

The article threw cold water on the importance of these highly regarded nutritional substances and attempted to debunk the idea that they could have beneficial effects on health on longevity.  Even worse, it was headlined “We Spend Millions on Anti-oxidants, But Now Researchers Say They Make Our Bodies Age Faster” and implied that anti-oxidants may even have a harmful pro-aging effects.

Pharmacological Poisoning

Pharmacological Poisoning

Mrs. Adams looked grumpy, but who could blame her? She had just gotten out of the hospital. Her first stop after being discharged was my pharmacy and her first order of business was having a stack of prescriptions filled. Aside from the fact that Mrs. Adams was going to be parting with a significant chunk of change (she had a twenty dollar co-pay which meant her 12 prescriptions were going to costing her 240 bucks), she was also about to bombard her biology with enough chemical poisons to make her body eligible as a toxic waste dump. To compound her problems, unbeknownst to Mrs. Adams and probably her doctor too, not only were her pharmacological protocols going to be poisoning her body, but even worse, unless she was savvy enough to get on a supplement program, she was inevitably going to be dealing with the consequences of nutrient deficiency. This deficiency could conceivably lead to a whole host of pathological symptomology and might even shorten her life.

One of the more significant, if under-appreciated, aspects of prescription drug toxicity, involves the depletion of nutritional raw materials that fuel the detoxification system, the collective term for the ordinarily extremely effective purifying processes that are, for the most part, housed in the liver. That’s because these detoxifying biochemical reactions all depend on the must-have “essential” nutrients, known as the “Mighty 90”, to do their work. In fact, every chemical reaction in the body depends on these essential substances. In the presence of excessive poisons (drugs), detox “machinery” can become like a metaphorical sinkhole, diverting and draining nutritional elements and keeping them from participating in the many other biochemical reactions. They are responsible for maintaining the health and integrity of the human body.
