What are Stem Cells

The human body consists of more than 200 types of mature cells.¹ Whether it’s the heart muscle cells that beat rhythmically or red blood cells that deliver oxygen to every part of our body, all cells have a unique role to play.

Why Save Stem Cells

Stem cells are different but no less crucial:

  • They can multiply.
  • They can specialise to perform specific functions.
  • They can create new tissue when they divide and differentiate.

Why Save Now

Stem cells are precious because they have the ability to develop into different kinds of cells within the human body. This unique process of specialisation is what builds our complex organism.
Some of these stem cells remain in our body as a “reserve” and play a key role in regeneration in the case of damaged or aged tissue.
