Now, I will start off being honest. I am not sure if I am on the "stem cell" bandwagon just yet. But I will also admit I haven't researched the topic totally.
So when I first heard of C'Elle I was in shock! You see C'Elle is exclusive and revolutionary stem cell technology empowers women to safely and easily collect non-controversial, potentially life-saving stem cells found in menstrual blood. (Yes, menstural blood!)
When I first heard this I thought to myself, "NEVER!" I couldn't believe what I had heard.
But then I think back to the greatest Christmas gift I ever received! Remember the story I shared with you two weeks back? You know, the story about my sweet Princess Mimi receiving two blood transfusions in 2006? I wish I could personally thank the two individuals who shared their blood with my baby.
And I bet years ago, blood transfusions were not popular. I am sure their was controversy!
So I am starting to open my mind a little more to stem cell.
C'elle menstrual stem cells have demonstrated the ability to differentiate into other cell types such as heart muscle, cartilage, nerve and bone stem cells. This translates into the potential for future therapeutic developments to possibly treat major diseases like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, MS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's; as well as possible cosmeceutical applications like anti-aging and wound-healing.
So what are your thoughts on stem cell? I'd be happy to hear your comments!
