Today I am devoting my entire blog to the power of Adult Stem Cells, and how new research is showing that you can use a natural super food supplement called AFA, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, to stimulate the production, as well as the migration of your own stem cells, from your own bone marrow.
AFA, is a fresh water, edible species of blue-green algae known to be one of the oldest and most nutritious foods on the planet. It grows primarily in Klamath Lake, in Oregon, as a wild aquatic algae. This simple organism contains complete nutrition in its most basic form providing all the building blocks required for ideal health.
Recently, extensive research was performed by the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, Canada, led by Dr. Gitte S. Jensen, on the effect of AFA on the immune and endocrine systems, as well as general blood physiology. The results were amazing. It was discovered that consuming AFA had a profound and unique effect on natural killer cells.
Here were the results...
“Effects of the Blue Green Algae Aphanizomenon flos-aquae on Human Natural Killer Cells,” Chapter 3.1 of the IBC Library Series, Volume 1911, “Phytoceuticals: Examining the health benefit and pharmaceutical properties of natural antioxidants and phytochemicals.”
The results were as follows:
Within two hours after eating 1.5 grams of AFA, an average of 40% of the blood natural killer cells (one billion) left the bloodstream and migrated into the tissues. They further discovered that in some cases the natural killer cells remaining in the bloodstream had two to three times as many adhesion molecules as they did before the AFA was consumed. After a few hours, the natural killer cells returned to the bloodstream.
Other health benefits of AFA have been reported for more than two decades, however, it was only recently that Dr. Christian Drapeau discovered the science that fully explained the mechanisms by which AFA acts on the body.
The following are the most notable benefits attributed to the consumption of large amounts of AFA, as reported by Paula Rothstein in her article "ADULT STEM CELLS: Are these Master Cells the Elixir of Youth?":
1) stimulates the release of stem cells from the bone marrow and, therefore, stands as an unequaled natural product for regeneration and healing
2) stimulates the migration of natural killer cells, a type of lymphocyte involved in eliminating cancerous and virtually infected cells, offering powerful immune support
3) an excellent source of highly bioavailable Omega-3 fatty acids, carotenoids, and chlorophyll which promote a healthy heart and benefits the treatment of ADD
4) Contains phycocyanin, the blue pigment, which helps prevent inflammation and pain and protect the body against heavy metal toxicity and pesticides
5) significant source of phenylethylamine (PEA), known to increase mental alertness, concentration, elevate mood, and alleviate depression and symptoms of ADD
6) contains a unique and potent anti-inflammatory
7) rich source of vitamins and minerals.
What I have tried to do below is give you information in both written and video form so you can see just how important this discovery is.
I start by giving you a glimpse of the power of stem cell medicine, as described by a famous futurist and medical doctor, Dr Patrick Dixon, author of Futurewise. Watch 3/4 of the video, until he gets into explaining how longer healthier lives will effect the forecasts for life insurance and pensions risk.
Next I introduce you to Dr. Christian Drapeau, and his research on AFA, and his new product called Stem Enhance. Stem Enhance is a concentrated version of AFA, concentrating on just a few nutrients that are contained in the whole wild AFA algae. It is concentrated at a 5 to 1 ratio.
It is my personal belief that it is always better to use the whole nutraceutical, herb, or phytonutrient compound, rather than a fractured version of it, even though it is more efficient based on how many capsules or tablets you have to take.
All of the research that led to the discovery of the amazing benefits of AFA were observed over decades using the whole wild blue-green aquatic algae.
AFA is very powerful and should be taken in small amounts and then built up over time, to a level that will achieve the stimulating and migrating benefits described by Dr. Drapeau in his research. It can be cleansing in the beginning and it does increase mental function and clarity to a very high level. So take it slow and build up if you decide to try it. I don't recommend you take it at night as it can cause brain churn.
Based on Drapeau's research and his double blind studies, the consumption level of 10 grams of wild AFA, divided into 2 dosage times, 5,000 mgs upon awakening (10 tablets), then 5,000 mgs (10 tablets) about 6 hours later. This consumption level, according to Dr. Drapeau, will support the release of as many as 4 million new stem cells into the blood stream, thereby assisting the body in regaining and maintaining optimal health. A greater number of circulating stem cells equals greater health.
This is what I recently started doing. First I built up slowly taking 2 tablets, twice a day, then 3, then 4 etc, until I could handle 10 tablets twice a day. I take the whole wild AFA from NSI, called Klamath Blue-Green Algae. It is a high quality product wild crafted and freeze dried to protect nutrient status.
If you want to try it for yourself, try the small bottle first, then if you like it, try the 500 tablet bottle for price and convenience there after.

Christian Drapeau on Adult Stem Cell Therapy... Video
Dr. Christian Drapeau has been pioneering the research for the past two decades on the key nutrient in StemEnhance, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) responsible for the release and migration of millions of adult stem cells. AFA is a fresh water, edible species of blue-green algae known to be one of the oldest and most nutritious foods on the planet. This simple organism is complete nutrition in its most basic form, providing the building blocks of health.
Christian Drapeau's theory that Adult Stem Cells are nothing less than the human body's natural healing system has profound implications for every area of modern medicine.
The idea that heart disease, diabetes, liver degeneration, and other medical conditions could become things of the past is no longer science fiction: because of recent Adult Stem Cell research breakthroughs, these are real possibilities in the short term.
Over the past few years a number of studies have demonstrated that an important parameter in the stem cell system of renewal is the number of circulating stem cells. The higher the number of circulating stem cells, the higher the number of stem cells available to migrate in various organs and tissues. As they migrate in tissues, stem cells become cells of that tissue, regenerating the tissue.
For example, the risk of cardiovascular disease was linked to the number of circulating stem cells; less stem cells circulating in the blood was linked to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. It is now know that stem cells are attracted to the heart when the heart is lacking oxygen. As they migrate in the heart, stem cells can differentiate and form new capillaries that bring oxygen and nutrients, reducing the risk of heart attack for example. Similar observations were made with other diseases such as muscular dystrophy where the rate of progression of the disease has been linked to the number of stem cells circulating in the blood, to the point that the number of circulating stem cells has been shown to be one of the most important predictors of disease progression. Likewise, the progression of pulmonary arterial hypertension, arthritis, atherosclerosis, lupus erythematosus, kidney failure, and even migraine have all been linked to a reduction in the number of circulating stem cells.
Therefore, recent studies in the field of stem cells research suggest that the next important parameter in health will not be your cholesterol level, or the level of oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, but the number of circulating stem cells. More stem cells in your blood, the greater your health. So anything that can increase the number of circulating stem cells would contribute to improving your health.
Christian Drapeau, MSc., Chief Science Officer - 45 min. Video on Stem Enhance...
Dr. Drapeau explains why he developed his product Stem Enhance. He markets this product through a Network Marking Program. While you can get the same benefits from taking AFA as a whole supplement, like I do, he explains the science behind why you might want to consider taking either his product or the whole wild blue-green AFA.
If you are working on the heart, make sure you are taking plenty of C as well. Here is why...
Richard T. Lee, M.D., senior author of a study published by the American Heart Association says: "We have been taught for decades that when your heart cells are dead, they are dead and there is nothing we can do about it.We are excited about anything suggesting that we can grow more heart cells."Lee and his colleagues tested 880 bioactive substances – including drugs and vitamins – approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to see if they stimulated the mouse stem cells to become heart muscle cells. The cells were genetically altered to give off a fluorescent bright green color when viewed under a microscope if they had become heart muscle cells."We only got 1 out of the 880 to light up, and that was from ascorbic acid, the chemical commonly known as vitamin C," says Lee, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and a lecturer in biological engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass.
