The number of stem cells and stem cell activity diminish as a person ages.
However, it should be noted that degree of stem cell activity determines the amount that can be cultured and not the effectiveness of the cells. This means older depositors may have fewer stem cells and the cells may be more difficult to culture, but cells cultured from their stem cells will not necessarily be any less effective. Bethesda Clinic’s technology alliance partner RNL Bio has developed a standardized procedure for culturing massive amounts of stem cells from just a small amount of source cells. How much you can benefit from stem cells in the event that you fall ill depends on how fast you can receive those stem cells into your system.
Because the necessary the amount of stem cells must be gained and cultured as quickly as possible, take too long and you can miss out on that small window of opportunity for effective treatment. This is why you should deposit your stem cells now.
