Frequently Asked Questions about StemPlex

  • Who can use StemPlex?
    The product is suitable for anyone who wants to support his or her body's natural renewal system.*

  • Who should not use StemPlex?
    There are no indications for anyone not to use StemPlex, but if you have a medical condition or are taking any prescription medication, we recommend that you consult with your health care professional.

  • Is StemPlex suitable for animals?
    StemPlex was formulated for human consumption. One must exercise caution when using this product for animals. For example, while the benefits of adequate dietary vitamin D are well established in dogs, the potential deleterious effects of over-supplementation of vitamin D should also be acknowledged. Since one capsule of StemPlex contains 1,000 IU vitamin D, supplementing a dog's diet with StemPlex should be discussed with the animal's veterinarian. By extension, it is wise to consult with a health care practitioner before incorporating nutritional supplements into any animal's dietary regimen.

  • Does StemPlex need to be taken with food or can it be taken by itself?
    StemPlex can be taken with or without food. Taking StemPlex with food may slightly increase the absorption of fat-soluble substances like vitamin D.

  • Should you take both capsules of StemPlex at the same time?
    It is best to take both capsules at the same time. StemPlex is formulated to match the concentration that was used in the research.

  • Is there any advantage to taking more than the recommended amount of two capsules of StemPlex per day?
    We have no data beyond the recommended amount of two capsules of StemPlex per day. We have no reason to believe that there is further benefit from taking more than two capsules per day. Since toxicity can occur from consuming large amounts of vitamin D, we don't recommend taking more than four capsules per day.

  • Is there caffeine in the green tea extract?
    The green tea extract in StemPlex contains very little caffeine. In the final formula, the amount of caffeine is less than 10 mg per serving. As a comparison, an 8-oz cup of coffee contains 60-150 mg.

  • What form of vitamin D is used in StemPlex?
    Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the form of vitamin D used in this product. It is obtained from lanolin, an oil that is pressed from wool.

  • What is the source of carnosine?
    Carnosine is derived from a microbial fermentation process - similar to how fungal enzymes are produced. Carnosine is sometimes derived from feathers or hair, but after carefully researching this matter with our vendor, we determined that the carnosine we use is not derived from an animal source. It is derived from a microbial fermentation process.

  • Does supplementing the use of StemPlex with enzymes help StemPlex become more available?
    Although it is perfectly fine to take this product all by itself, it is true that using it in conjunction with enzymes will assist in the digestion and availability of the ingredients in StemPlex.

  • Does StemPlex stop working after a period of use?
    In vivo animal testing data suggests that the product works for continued periods of time, priming the stem cells to be ready when needed by the body.*

  • What evidence shows that StemPlex is safe for long-term use?
    StemPlex is a combination of several natural ingredients (blueberries, green tea, vitamin D, Super Blue Green® Algae, and carnosine, a naturally-occurring amino acid) that have been consumed by humans for decades or, in the case of blueberries and green tea, hundreds of years without adverse effects.

  • Do the ingredients in StemPlex increase cell proliferation?
    In vitro research has shown the combination of natural ingredients in StemPlex may increase stem cell proliferation. However, if you have a pre-existing medical condition you should always consult with a health care professional prior to taking this or any other dietary supplement.

  • Where are stem cells found in the body
    Adult stem cells have been identified in many organs and tissues including the brain and heart.

  • What is the lay interpretation of Dr. Bickford's scientific article?
    Dr. Bickford's first research study reports the effect of the ingredients in the StemPlex formula on the proliferation (growth) of stem cells in vitro. Three types of adult stem cells were tested and were shown to increase the proliferation by as much as 70% in vitro.* The research article is available for purchase from Simplexity Health.

  • What are bone marrow, CD34+, and CD133+ cells?
    The bone marrow is one of the places in the body where many stem cells are located and thus is a source of stem cell population. The CD34+ and CD133+ cells are specific types of stem cells that are released from the bone marrow into the blood.

  • Since the testing was done in vitro, will the product have any effect in the body (in vivo)?
    The data presented is published in peer-reviewed scientific literature. To date, the published literature on StemPlex shows data on human stem cells in culture (in vitro). Research is continuing on this formulation to show the effect in the body (in vivo). The results of ongoing studies indicate positive effects in vivo. The animal studies are available from Simplexity Health.

  • How does StemPlex interact with our DNA?
    There is no data to suggest that the ingredients in StemPlex interact with DNA.

  • The study estimated the number of stem cells by a process known as "MTT cell proliferation assay," which measures mitochondrial activity. Is this a good measure of stem cell count?
    Studies have shown that the MTT assay accurately reflects the number of stem cells in the culture and this is the reason that this assay was chosen by the scientists who did the research.
