On the other hand, stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can become any cell the body needs. These cells can regenerate damaged or worn-out tissues.

Remarkably, just one day post-treatment, Bjornsson reported feeling better. “I don’t have any shortness in my chest; my lower back is sore, my knees are fine,” he stated. Dr. Tom, the specialist overseeing his treatment, told him that the benefits would accumulate over time. “You’ll feel benefits within a month from now and then every month, it’s gonna be more and more,” he was told.
