NAD+ Promotes Stem Cell Renewal and Regenerates Mitochondria
Life Extension® receives many inquiries about stem cell infusion therapies offered in the United States and other countries. Our current view from small human trials is that there may be a benefit to infusions of exosomes that are naturally secreted from healthy stem cells. Stem cell exosomes have regenerative properties that help restore functional cells needed to maintain tissue and organ viability. Overlooked when considering exosome treatments is the ability to rejuvenate existing stem cell pools u..
