What Are Stem Cells? 

Stem cells are cells that can turn into other cells. The process involves meticulous engineering in a laboratory until the cells divide and create daughter cells. These turn into specialized cells with specific functions that assist in regeneration in certain areas of the body. That is why it is used for treatment by specialists in a regenerative center to help patients with complications in areas like the heart, blood, bones, and muscles.

Throughout the years, researchers have found that there are many sources of stem cells. These sources come from certain essential parts of the human body that have evolved in varying stages of development. These include: 

  • Embryonic Stem Cells

These are stem cells harvested safely from embryos in their early stages or at least three to five days old. At this stage, it is called a blastocyst, which is identified as pluripotent as it can …
