How Age Impacts Stem Cell Concentrations
Every person, regardless of health, loses stem cells over the course of their life. At birth, 1 in 10,000 of our body’s cells are stem cells. By age 16-18, only 1 in 100,000 cells are stem cells. By age 50, 1 in 400,000. Between age 70-80, only 1 in 2,000,000 cells are stem cells. These numbers could be even worse when you factor in circumstances such as the current health of the individual.
This means that your ability to use your own stem cells effectively in treating yourself decreases with age. The stem cells you will get from a younger donor will be much more concentrated than those you can get from yourself in virtually all cases. The fact that they come from an outside donor does not impact their effectiveness so long as they are the right kind of stem cells, containing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as described on our FAQ page, as they have the ability to differentiate into different cell types. For this reason, your body does not ‘reject’ stem cells like we think of a body rejecting an organ transplant if it doesn’t match perfectly.
In an article released in the last few years by the World Journal of Experimental Medicine, researchers on the subject concluded that, “we grow old partly because our stem cells grow old with us.” They went a bit further and stated that, “With the sharp rise in the aging-associated diseases, the need for effective regenerative medicine strategies for the aged is more important than ever. Fortunately, rapid advances in stem cell and regenerative medicine technologies continue to provide us with a better understanding of the diseases that allows us to develop more effective therapies and diagnostic technologies to better treat aged patients.”
With umbilical cord blood derived stem cells, strong in MSCs, Stem Cells LA & Regen LA welcome you to a new advancement in antiaging treatment!

Stem Cells LA is the best choice for stem cell therapy in Los Angeles. We utilize treatments of up to 30 million heterogeneous umbilical cord stem cells including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for conditions including autoimmune disease, heart disease, orthopedic disease, neurological disease, urologic disease, erectile dysfunction and antiaging. We even use the restorative properties of stem cell treatments to help reduce healing time from procedures such as hair transplants and now offer stem cell therapy for neuropathy, arthritis and hair loss with stem cell-infused PRP therapy. Only a doctor can help you decide if stem cell and/or PRP treatments are right for you.
