Adult Stem Cells -vs- Embryonic Stem Cells
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found throughout the body after embryonic development that divide to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues.
Stem cells are the foundation cells for every organ, tissue and cell in the body. They are like a blank microchip that can ultimately be programmed to perform particular tasks. Stem cells are undifferentiated or "blank" cells that have not yet fully specialized. Under proper conditions, stem cells begin to develop into specialized tissues and organs.
Additionally, stem cells can self-renew, that is they can divide and give rise to more stem cells. They can be found in children, as well as adults.
Research into adult stem cells has been fueled by their abilities to divide or self-renew indefinitely and generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate — potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells. Unlike embryonic stem cells, the use of adult stem cells in research and therapy is not controversial because the production of adult stem cells does not require the creation or destruction of an embryo.
Adult stem cell treatments have been successfully used for many years to treat leukemia and related bone/blood cancers through bone marrow transplants. Adult stem cells are also used in veterinary medicine to treat tendon and ligament injuries in horses. The use of adult stem cells in research and therapy is not as controversial as embryonic stem cells, because the production of adult stem cells does not require the destruction of an embryo.

“invisible living flower of the water”
is an all-natural patented supplement that helps to increase the release of adult stem cells or what are also known as progenitor cells noted below. It is not to be confused with any other product that has less than 750 mg. of active ingredient per capsule and could consist of merely fruit extracts and/or simply Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) extracts.
