Metformin Treatment for Anti Aging

At Stem Cell Treatment Institute advanced procedures are performed at some of the most scientifically advanced hospitals in the world.

Metformin Treatment

In one study lasting more than 10 years, patients who primarily received metformin had a 39% reduction in the risk of heart attack and a 36% reduction of death from any cause!

How Metformin Functions
Metformin reduces blood glucose levels primarily by suppressing glucose formation in the liver (hepatic gluconeogenesis).

More importantly, it activates an enzyme called AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase) that plays an important role in insulin signaling, systemic energy balance, and the metabolism of glucose and fats.

Activation of AMPK is one mechanism that may explain why diabetics prescribed metformin have sharply lower cancer rates.

Metformin reduces triglycerides, glucose, insulin and hemoglobin A1C (a marker of long term glucose control).  These blood markers are all proven heart attack risk factors.

Eternal-youth seekers have great reason to cheer with the revelations of science about Metformin and anti-aging.

With aging, the cells of the body begin to decay. They lose their ability to regenerate and repair tissue. Changes begin to show on the skin; the internal organs such as the heart, the sex glands, the immune system etc. begin to lose their functional efficiency. At this point, you begin to look and feel aged.

Aging also opens the door to a number of diseases like arthritis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart complications, and even cancer. Most of them can be traced to deficiencies at the cellular level.

Anti-Aging Stem Cell Therapy is also available.

Stem Cell Specialist

Stem Cell Specialist Dr. Lopez works with a team of highly trained and experienced specialists including neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, hematologists, ophthalmologists, and pediatricians.

We offer Stem Cell treatments with enhanced or manipulated stem cells. These expanded and mobilized stem cells have been found to provide better results than non-manipulated stem cell applications.

Manipulation or amplification of the stem cells is done in the lab, where care is taken to retain the cell properties. These expanded and mobilized cells provide superior results and cell recovery has been found to occur twice as fast as with non-manipulated stem cell applications.

Studies where both types of cells were used show that results were quicker and were obtained predominantly from the manipulated stem cells.

Stem Cells can come from the patient’s fat or bone marrow, but stem cells from donor placenta or umbilical cord blood is also available and may have improved benefits. Donor characteristics (i.e., age) play a key role in treatment success. Your individual situation will be considered and suitable options will be discussed.

As we age our stem cells become less prolific and less effective. For this reason younger cells are often preferred. We do not need to go all the way back to an early stage embryo to get young cells. Young cells can be used from The Placenta, or Umbilical Cord (cord blood cells), and other young sources. These young cells are more likely than stem cells found in adult sources like bone marrow and adipose tissue (fat) to have proliferative properties. This means that stem cells found in placenta and cord blood have a greater ability to regenerate.

In some counrties (US and Europe) requlations limit access to these advanced stem cell sources. Fortunately our International Health Department Permit, a COFEPRIS, is on a Presidential level, insuring access to the highest level of quality stem cells.
