Natura Therapeutics, Inc. Introduces NutraStem®, a Stem Cell Nutritional Supplement, to the Nutraceutical Market


Tampa, FL, November 10, 2006 - Natura Therapeutics, a science-based nutritional products company, located in Tampa, FL, launches NutraStem®, a nutritional supplement that supports the body’s self-repair mechanisms through the care of existing, and the proliferation of new, adult stem cells. NutraStem® utilizes a specific combination of all-natural ingredients that are commonly taken by health-conscious individuals today. It is the patent-pending formulation of these ingredients that make NutraStem® unique. The ingredients in NutraStem® work synergistically to positively impact the body’s stem cell nutrition in two ways. First, NutraStem® encourages the proliferation of new adult stem cells. Stem cells are often referred to as “blank cells,” meaning that they can develop into most tissue and bone cells in the body. When new adult stem cells are created, they begin to work on the problem areas of the body that often arise as we age. Second, the combination of all-natural ingredients along with antioxidants in NutraStem® work together to protect the body’s existing stem cells from the often harmful effects of freeradicals. One of the primary antioxidants within NutraStem® is green tea, which has been used in Chinese medicine for generations. In addition to supporting the body’s defenses against freeradicals, green tea helps to support normal cholesterol levels and enhances the proliferation of stem cells in the body, particularly within the skin.  

About Stem Cells

Modern science has proven that stem cells are essentially the building blocks of our body. Additionally, science has shown that adult stem cells are found in most organs, tissue, and especially bone marrow. These cells are pre-programmed to migrate toward problem areas within the body and begin a repair process. However, as our bodies age, adult stem cell production and efficacy lessen, and we in turn become more prone to illness or injury.
