Stem cells are the most important cells in our body. They are biological cells that have the potential to regenerate tissue over a lifetime. They are un-programmed, found in all multicellular organisms, and can divide and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types (with specific functions) and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In humans and animals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts, and adult stem cells, which are found in various tissues.
In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells (these are called pluripotent cells), but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin, or intestinal tissues.
They are typically activated in response to an injury. They are also the source of continous skin growth and cell regeneration, but they can be harmed by internal (stress, smoke, unbalanced diet etc.) and external (UV radiation, pollution etc.) factors, and then their regenerating capability is jeopardised. It is therefore essential that we replenish lost skin stem cells, which can be achieved by using products with plant stem cells.
Plant stem cells serve as the origin of plant vitality, as they never undergo an aging process, they maintain themselves while providing a steady supply of cells to different tissues and organs in plants. They replenish dying cells, and fix damaged tissue while continuously renewing themselves. Meristematic (stem) cells are incompletely or not at all differentiated, and are capable of continued cellular division (cell regeneration). They are concentrated in the roots, buds and fruits of plants.
Plant stem cells are characterized by two distinctive properties: the ability to create all differentiated cell types and the ability to self-renew such that the number of stem cells is maintained. Plant stem cells never undergo the aging process but immortally give rise to new specialized and unspecialized cells, and they have the potential to grow into any organ, tissue, or cell in the body. They have regenerative powers that facilitate plant growth and production of new organs throughout lifetime.
Unlike animals, plants are immobile. As plants cannot escape from danger by taking motion, they need a special mechanism to withstand various and sometimes unforeseen environmental stress. What empower them to withstand harsh external influence and preserve life are their stem cells. In fact, plants comprise the oldest and the largest living organisms on earth (think of the thousands of years old and still living Red Pines in California). This is possible because they have a modular body plan that enables them to survive substantial damage by initiating continuous and repetitive formation of new structures and organs such as leaves and flowers.
