Supporting the immune system is on everyone’s mind these days. Especially for those of us that are aging. Once over a certain age, we see our immune systems naturally shift. We have more inflammation and infections become harder to treat. There is a definite age component to immunity. One way to tackle this is to rejuvenate the body by immune-boosting.
The Need for Boosting Immunity
As we age, our cells lose healthy function and many become “senescent". Senescent cells are cells that no longer work properly yet still remain alive. They secrete inflammatory factors and cause chronic inflammation and damage in the body. They are linked to a decrease in NAD+, a key factor in energy generation and youthfulness. Their presence can exacerbate diseases like osteoarthritis, atherosclerosis, Parkinson’s, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
When we are healthy and youthful, these destructive cells are easily eliminated. As we age, however, senescence rises. The immune system spends its time dealing with inflammation. It has much fewer resources to fight off infections, like influenza. In this way, senescence and aging lead to a weakening of natural and acquired defense.
It's also important to keep in mind that the immune cells also age. Your T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, dendritic cells all grow old with you and can become senescent. They too need to be cleared out of the body. Senolytic treatments are necessary as an immune system booster, promoting resilience. A recent study1 shows how senolytic treatments remove senescent immune cells and contribute to an extended healthy lifespan.
Dealing with senescence is a priority in all Stemaid Programs. Our pluripotent stem cells and their supportive treatments -
- selectively eliminate senescent cells
- repair damage from years of chronic inflammation and senescence
- reprogram aging immune cells and tissues to a younger state
Pluripotent Stem Cells secrete senolytic, regenerative, and reprogramming factors that get the job done. They reset the immune system for healthy defense, repair damaged tissue, and buy you years of strong immunity.
Low senescence. A potent immune system. Healthy body. A longer and vibrant healthspan. That is what we're after.
What You Can Do Today to Start Boosting Your Immunity
There are many ways to support a weak immune system. Nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle are all key. Adding the intelligence of Pluripotent Stem Cells is the next level. The senolytic and regenerative power of these cells can rejuvenate your immunity by 10+ years.
Immune system rejuvenation is a real thing!
