I have exciting news to share with you. It’s about an important anti-aging technology breakthrough.
This discovery harnesses your body’s own powerful healing factors to repair and regenerate your skin. It can take years off your appearance.
And give you the confidence you need to walk out your door with no make-up on.
There’s no surgery… no injections… no peeling… no painful chemical burning. It’s like nothing we’ve seen before.
In fact, this breakthrough treatment can:
- Bring back youthful elasticity
- Smooth your skin and erase fine lines
- Tighten and reduce sagging around your eyes, cheeks and mouth
- Lighten and brighten age spots
- Protect your skin from further sun damage
And according to my patients who’ve used it, it gives you the confidence you need to go out with a bare face.
This discovery uses your body’s own “growth factors” to repair damage.
Growth factors are your body’s messengers. They carry messages from your stem cells to damaged tissues.
You already know that stem cells are your body’s master cells.
But they’re also your skin’s ultimate natural cure. Whenever you have damaged skin, stem cells travel to the injured site. They act like first responders. They take charge of the scene and give orders to the local cells and tissues.
Growth factors carry the message to make more cells so that tissues can regenerate with new growth. But unfortunately, your supply of growth factors diminishes as you age. That’s why you develop wrinkles, sags and age spots.
In the last few years, researchers have discovered another way to easily access stem cells containing these growth factors.
The fat in your body is a storage facility for stem cells that produce growth factors. These cells are called “adipose-derived stem cells,” or ADSCs.
Studies show that ADSCs stimulate collagen1 and protect skin cells from UVB radiation.2 They can to increase the thickness of your skin layers and reduce wrinkles.3
But working with ADSCs isn’t easy. They’re almost impossible to grow in a lab. And they haven’t been stable enough for use in skincare products.
But researchers recently found a way to get the benefits of stem cells without using the cells themselves.
They discovered that when ADSCs are soaked in a solution, they emit a lot of the growth factors that regenerate your skin.4
And when you apply this solution that contains the growth factors alone to skin, it has the same effect as the stem cells themselves.
In fact, the stem cell bath is even MORE effective than stem cells for healing skin.
One clinical study looked at 14 patients with sun damage on their faces. They were given a facial cream containing multiple types of growth factors. They applied the cream to their face twice daily. After 60 days, fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes dropped 14.1%.
In addition, collagen formation increased 36% and the thickness of the epidermis expanded 30%.5
In another study, 12 patients with facial wrinkles applied a growth factor cream on half their face twice a day. On the other half they applied a cream without growth factors. After three months, the researchers saw a 21.7% improvement in wrinkles from the growth factors.6
Until recently, no one had figured out a way to use stem cell therapy in an inexpensive, practical way. But that’s changing. Today, there are cutting-edge anti-aging serums that contain growth factors and can rejuvenate your skin.
Boost growth factors at home
In the meantime, I suggest boosting your growth factors at home. I came across a study that found using a combination of blueberry, green tea extract, carnosine and vitamin D3 can increase the growth factors in your stem cells by an amazing 68%.7
Here’s what I recommend you include in your diet:
- Eat as many blueberries as you can. If you can’t find fresh organic blueberries, supplement with 500 mg of organic whole blueberry extract a day.
- Drink green tea twice a day. The active ingredient in green tea, EGCG, prevents and repairs cell damage, including stem cells.
- Add carnosine. I recommend getting 1,000 mg of carnosine every day. Grass-fed, pasture-raised meat is the best way to get carnosine. Or you can supplement with natural L-carnosine. Take 500 mg twice a day.
- Get enough vitamin D. The best way is to get 20 minutes of unprotected sun every day. That’ll give you about 5,000 IU. I recommend supplementing with a kind of vitamin D3 called cholecalciferol. It’s the same vitamin D3 your body produces. Just be sure to avoid the synthetic form of vitamin D2 in most multivitamins because it is less potent and less absorbable.I also suggest you supplement. Take 2,000 IU daily, preferably in the morning but never at night. That’s because vitamin D is inversely related to melatonin, your sleep hormone, and may keep you awake.
To Your Good Health,
