WHAT ARE ADULT STEM CELL'S
Adult stem cells are un-differentiated cells found throughout the body that divide and multiply to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissue.
Because they are unspecialised, they can develop into many of the different cell types the body needs for repair and regeneration, such as heart, muscle, connective tissue or even brain.
They can potentially divide without limit giving an endless source of regeneration. They are in fact the most powerful anti-ageing mechanism known to science today. Adult stem cells, which circulate naturally in humans, are different to embryonic stem cells which are derived only from an embryo. The most common stem cell is referred to as CD34 and is created in the bone marrow and released to the circulation naturally when required for tissue repair.
Adult stem cell therapy is the fastest growing area of regenerative medicine with many people around the world receiving therapeutic treatment of stem cell injections to overcome degenerative diseases. Substantial research now shows that increased stem cell activity is not only safe but beneficial
Colostem® was developed to help support and activate the body's natural stem cell population.

Breast milk contains stem cells?
Published in Science Network, Australia (11 February 2008 (Dr Mark Cregan, University of Western Australia)
Perth scientists discovered that breast milk contains stem cells. Link this to the fact that Colostrum contains factors that activate stem cells, and the knowledge of cell based immunity and we begin to understand why Colostrum is important for healthy growth and development. There appear to be many links between Colostrum and stem cells and it seems natural that a substance designed by nature for the development of the infant would contain factors that may assist with tissue regeneration and that it would be completely safe.

ALPHA LlPIDTM COLOSTRUM
Colostem® contains 400mg of specially selected Alpha Lipid™ Colostrum. As well as a natural source of antibodies, Alpha Lipid™ Colostrum is rich in bioactive compounds that activate immune cells such as cytokines, interleukins, interferon’s, growth factors and peptides such as proline rich polypeptides (PRP). Some of the growth factors include human growth hormone (HGH), insulin-like growth factors (IGF-1 and IGF-2), epidermal growth factor (EGF), fibroblast growth factor, platelet derived growth factor, and granulocyte colony stimulating factor, which has been used as a drug to stimulate stem cell proliferation and activation*.
Brown seaweed (Angel's Hair) extractsulphated polysaccharide, discovered by Dr Kyosuke Owa in Japan, who noted similarities
to fucoidan polysaccharide and human breast milk and called it "the plant equivalent of mothers milk"
Fucoidan is a multi-functional nutrient from the sea. It has been consumed as a health food in Asia and the Pacific for over 2000 years and is the subject of over 700 published scientific
The benefits of fucoidan are:
It defends against degenerative diseases, it is an anti-oxidant which protects against premature ageing, it has an anti-coagulant effect, it inhibits abnormal cell growth, normalises blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol, improves stomach upsets and
supports immune function. *
FUCOIDAN AND STEM CELLS
Fucoidan induces rapid mobilisation of stem cells in the body. Cells have sticky patches called ligands that help cell to cell recognition.
Leukocytes have a ligand called L-selectin.which acts as a "homing receptor" for leukocytes, directing them to where they are
needed. Fucoidan sticks to I:selectin resulting in a significant increase in stem cells (CD34) with the homing receptor.*
Resveratrol is produced naturally by several plants as a defence against attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi.
Resveratrol is sourced from red grape skins and Japanese knotweed. It is a longevity ingredient - thought to be a
factor in the French Paradox In mouse and rat experiments, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, blood-sugar-Iowering and beneficial cardiovascular effects have been reported. Experiments have shown that resveratrol treatment extended the life of
many species of animals. Physical endurance of mice was also substantially increased by resveratrol. *
The benefits of resveratrol are:
Resveratrol mimics effects of calorie restriction. Calorie restriction is the only intervention proven to prolong maximum life span and produce anti-ageing effects in a variety of organisms. French researchers suggested that resveratrol might help control weight gain by enhancing energy expenditure, and help prevent degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's which
are age related. Resveratrol supports blood vessel health, decreases oxidation of LDL, platelet aggregation and relaxes arterioles.
RESVERATROL AND STEM CELLS
There is some scientific evidence showing an interaction of resveratrol with stem cells. Resveratrol has been demonstrated to protect the cells in cartilage called chondrocytes which were derived from bone marrow stem cells. It also promotes the differentiation of bone cells called osteoblasts, and was shown to enrich stem cells invitro.*
