2 Why are stem cells important?
Stem cells are extremely useful in the natural process of healing and regeneration of skin cells. They have the ability to transform into any type of cells in order to aid the regeneration process of the body. And they are found in any and all living things.
Even our skin is full of stem cells, which we start to lose as we start to get old and by the age of 50, we have lost 98% of these regenerative skin cells. “When you’re young, the average turnover for your skin is about 25 to 30 days,” explains Dr. Hal Simeroth, an expert in stem Cell research.
“When we get older, the production slows down, [and] the turnover can take up to 60 days. When it’s exposed to the elements longer, it loses that youthful vibrant look.” concludes Dr. Simeroth
