Types of Stem Cells

Stem cells are the foundation for every organ and tissue in your body. There are many different types of stem cells that come from different places in the body or are formed at different times in our lives. These include embryonic stem cells that exist only at the earliest stages of development and various types of tissue- specific (or adult) stem cells that appear during fetal development.

All stem cells can self-renew (make copies of themselves) and differentiate (develop into more specialized cells). Beyond these two critical abilities, though, these stem cells’ ability decreases with age, chronic degenerative illnesses and disorders as well as unhealthy lifestyles.

In the past decades the approach of Cell therapy has achieve great lengths in regaining optimum health through restoration of our cells. Cell therapy is an introduction of active stem cells in our body to restore our weak cells.

In this section we look at a chronological timeline of various types of cells used in cell therapy – from Old technique to New technique.
