Holy Fruit Turns on Healing Stem Cells

Al Sears, MD, CNS – New research has found a way to dramatically increase the number of stem cells circulating in the blood using the “holy fruit of the Himalayas,” or seaberry. This bright orange fruit has been used for thousands of years to treat inflammation and infections, boost immunity, and slow the aging process.

Modern research explains why it works. In the study, 12 healthy adults had their blood drawn before and after eating either seaberry extract or a placebo. Data on stem cell activity was analyzed following each blood draw.1

Within two hours of eating the berry, researchers found that:

  • Progenitor stem cells capable of cardiovascular maintenance and repair increased 24%.
  • Endothelial stem cells increased by 33%. These multipotent stem cells found in bone marrow, have the ability to develop into multiple specialized cells.

Increasing the number of circulating stem cells in your body has been proven to potentially repair:

  • Acute myocardial infarction2
  • Stroke3
  • Bone fracture4
  • Muscle injury5
  • Spinal cord injury6
  • Inner ear damage7

Boost Your Stem Cells Easily at Home

  1. First take seaberry extract daily. To get the results researchers saw in the study, take 500 mg daily. It’s available as a softgel, powder and juice. Look for certified organic, non-GMO products.
  1. Second, try fasting for two days every six months. A study from the University of Southern California shows that this kind of fasting causes stem cells to awake from their normal dormant state and start regenerating. This practice destroyed damaged and older cells, and caused new cells to be born, effectively renewing the immune system.8
  2. Finally, workout intensely. A study in the European Heart Journal showed that vigorous exercise in mice activated 60% of their cardiac stem cells.9 In a human study, researchers proved that strenuous exercise leads to high levels of stem cells in bone, liver and other organs.10
