What Is StemEnhance™?
StemEnhance™ is a breakthrough, all-natural, botanical extract that supports wellness by helping your body maintain healthy stem cell physiology. It is the very first product on the market in the exciting and promising new phytoceutical product category known as "stem cell enhancers". U.S. Patent #6814961 for this proprietary product has been granted to StemTech HealthSciences Inc. of Klamath Lake, Oregon, USA, and a second patent is pending.
Several clinical studies have been conducted on this stem cell enhancer product, in addition to some in-vitro trials.
StemEnhance™ is not a drug, and is not intended to "treat" or "cure" any disease. It is a natural food supplement derived from a tiny natural freshwater aquatic plant that simply supports your body's own ability to heal itself. This unique plant, a cyanophtya whose scientific name is Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae or AFA, can be harvested in only one place - the mineral-rich waters of Klamath Lake, 1400 feet above sea level in the Cascade Mountains in the state of Oregon, USA.
Upper Lake Klamath is one of the cleanest lakes in the USA, yet the deep layer of sediment at the bottom is extremely rich in minerals because for centuries it has been fed by many mountain streams washing down from the volcanic mountains which surround it. The area enjoys about 300 days of sunshine per year, which provides an ideal growing environment for this remarkable fast-growing and highly nutritious plant.
Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae has never been successfully cultivated commercially, so this tiny, free-floating, underwater plant must be harvested in the wild from the waters of upper Klamath Lake at the peak of the summer growing season. AFA is a highly unusual single-celled organism that has a very high chlorophyll content (about 7 percent by weight) and is extremely rich in Beta Carotene (Vitamin A precursor). The chlorophyll gives it a very dark green color, thus AFA is known as a blue-green algae.
Yet, unlike all other plant organisms, AFA does not have a cell wall made of indigestible cellulose - which makes the nutrients in AFA more "bio-available" than the nutrients in all other types of algae. Overall, the human body will absorb approximately 95 percent of the nutrients in this algae "super food".
Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae also has a very rich content of high-grade protein (about 70 percent by weight). AFA contains all 22 essential amino acids in the most bio-available form (about 98 per cent bio-available).
And the relative amounts of each amino acid in AFA are so close to the amino acid spectrum which is optimal for the human body, that AFA blue-green algae has been called "the most complete brain food of the world". AFA is also considered the best non-animal source of natural Vitamin B12. And one gram of Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae contains approximately 50% of the daily recommendation (USRDA) for Vitamin K.
The nutritional benefits most often reported by consumers of this Klamath Lake AFA blue-green algae are:
- increased energy levels
- heightened mental clarity
- improved memory and recall
- relief of inflammatory conditions
- an overall feeling of well-being.
Compared to another well-known nutritious blue-green algae known as Spirulina, the AFA Blue-Green Algae has about 40% more Calcium, 100% more Chromium, 275% more Chlorophyll, and five to ten times the Vitamin C content of Spirulina. The assimilation rate of Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae exceeds 95%, while Spirulina is only 50% to 60% assimilated by the human body.
Each 3-capsule serving of StemEnhance™ contains 1 gram of Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae (333 mg. per capsule).
What Benefits Can You Get from the StemEnhance™ Product?
This natural health product is designed to enhance, by about 25 to 30 per cent, your own body's ability to perform its natural function of releasing adult stem cells from the bone marrow into circulation throughout the body.
The effectiveness of StemEnhance™ as a stem cell enhancer was demonstrated in a triple-blind study. Volunteers rested for one hour before blood samples were taken to establish baseline levels. After the first blood samples were taken, volunteers were given either theStemEnhance™ capsules, or a capsule containing a placebo. Thereafter, blood samples were taken from the test subjects 30, 60, and 120 minutes after taking the capsules. The number of circulating stem cells was quantified by analyzing the blood samples from the test subjects using Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting (FACS).
Consumption of StemEnhance™ triggered a significant 25% to 30% increase in the number of circulating stem cells.
Chief scientist Christian Drapeau explains that adult stem cells, their role in maintaining human health, and how StemEnhance™ can significantly increase the quantity of adult stem cells released into the bloodstream from your own bone marrow (9 minutes).
How StemEnhance™ Works
StemEnhance™ is a blend of two compounds extracted from the cyanophyta Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae (AFA). These compounds are carefully extracted in a patented proprietary process which does NOT utilize chemicals or harsh agents.
One extract, which contains an L-selectin ligand, supports the release of stem cells (CD34+ cells) from the bone marrow, which then circulates in the blood stream. The other extract, a polysaccharide-rich fraction named Migratose™, may support the migration of stem cells out of the blood into body tissues.
One gram of StemEnhance™ triggers an average 25 to 30 percent increase in circulating stem cells. The effect lasts for a few hours.
Suggested Serving: 3 capsules taken orally one or two times per day, at least 6 hours apart.
Servings per container: One serving is 3 capsules, about 1 gram. Each bottle contains 90 capsules.
(One bottle will supply 30 days of typical use, when taking 3 capsules once per day.)
Our breakthrough serum revitalizes the skin’s appearance, restoring and maintaining its youthful vibrancy.
DermaStem's®all-natural ingredients support the ideal environment for the natural regeneration of the adult stem cells, and the natural process of skin renewal.
“Within just 30 days with DermaStem, the skin on my face showed remarkably fewer wrinkles and increased softness, so DermaStem has replaced the organic product I have used for over two years. Now I notice that the areas around my eyes have fewer wrinkles, and that the ‘problem areas’ around my lips and on my neck are much smoother. Several of my friends have actually suggested that I must have had a ‘mini-facelift’ or that I had a facial laser treatment! But it’s all because of this amazing product. I am a true believer in the power of DermaStem.”

Christian Drapeau, MSc
Stemtech Chief Science Officer
As the global healthcare community has grown to accept the solid science behind the stem cell theory of renewal, Christian has become a sought-after expert on the subject of adult stem cells on the world stage. Along with the development of groundbreaking nutritional supplements that support the work of the body's adult stem cells, Christian began a quest for just the right ingredients to support the natural renewal of the body's largest organ, the skin. Ten years ago, he began working in earnest with "a kindred soul," Shakahn Kukulcan, whose dedication to bringing the benefits of Nature to the people of the world matched Christian's own dedication. DermaStem is the result of this transcendent collaboration.
Self-described as "tenaciously iconoclastic" and haunted by the proliferation of the use of synthetics and toxic chemicals in many "natural and organic" skin care products, Shakahn traveled the world for years in search of the best ingredients from Nature that could be developed into a truly organic, chemical-free skin care product that would be healthy and nutritious enough that you could "feed them to a baby."
Years of Shakahn's solitary research and a fortunate collaboration with Christian Drapeau led to the discovery that one "secret" of achieving an all-natural, innovative skin care product was that each plant had to be cold-water infused. No heat or preservatives, no alcohol, no chemicals could have any part of the process. In 2010, Christian and Shakahn presented the results of their work: an all-natural blend of Nature's most effective ingredients that restructure the skin at the cellular level and restore youthful vitality to the surface of the skin. From Nature and two very dedicated scientists comes DermaStem.
