Stem cells can be found from a variety of sources, such as;
Adipocytes - Also known as lipocytes and fat cells, are the cells that primarily compose adipose tissue, specialized in storing energy as body fat.
Bone Marrow – Stem calls can be found in adult bone marrow, but they must be harvested from an adult donor. While the process is minimally invasive, it’s not exactly fun, either. The ability to collect these cells is often determined by the age and health of the donor.
Placenta and Cord Tissue – This type of stem cell is derived from the mesoderm during embryonic development and can differentiate into cells of that germ layer, namely muscle, cartilage, nerve and fat.
Amniotic Fluid – Similar to marrow cells, stem cells can be harvested from a sample of amniotic fluid during a pregnancy.
Teeth – Developing teeth provide a lower risk source of stem cells that can have a variety of medical uses.
