SUNRISE, Fla., Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced its Chief Science Officer, Dr. Kristin Comella, will host a live webinar open to the public with Ben Greenfield -- a leading biohacker and fitness expert and CEO of health company Kion-- who recently had penile stem cell injections to enhance sexual performance.
Greenfield, a self-professed 'biohacker' who recently received stromal vascular fraction treatments (SVF) for erectile enhancement as part of his ongoing exploration of optimal physical performance, including penile enhancement, says as a result of the treatment he has experienced penile enlargement and more frequent erections.
"My drive to discover cutting-edge therapies is what led me to U.S. Stem Cell, and my results certainly convinced me of the validity of this treatment," said Greenfield. "The opportunity to dictate our own therapies to enhance performance in all arenas of health is an empowering part of physical performance, and it is a demonstration that regenerative medicine is here now."
"Because so many patients are seeking holistic alternatives to sustain sexual performance, and because it's Valentine's Day, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to discuss the use of autologous stem cells in this arena," said Dr. Kristin Comella, USRM's Chief Science Officer. "Ben's experience and his willingness to be open about sharing his journey will give a lot of people the opportunity to ask questions in an anonymous setting, so that they can learn more about whether the benefits of SVF is right for them."
SVF involves using USRM's proprietary AdipocellTM kit to help isolate a patient's own stem cells from their fat cells. Studies of stromal vascular fractions used in ED therapy are starting to emerge, as is documented in a scientific paper featured in EBioMedicine's January 2017 issue.
Autologous stem cell treatments harvested from the patient's own fat could provide healthier alternatives to the use of pharmaceuticals for erectile enhancement and dysfunction (ED) — a worldwide market that is estimated to be more than $4 billion annually and has slowed in growth due to toxic side effects from pharmaceuticals currently on the market, according to a report by Grand View Research published in July 2016. As a result, more men and women are seeking out stem cell therapy to enhance sexual performance, which to date has yielded more than 35 scientific studies about stem cell therapy and sexual enhancement.
"Enhancing Sexual Performance with Stem Cells," is the second in a series of webinars by USRM and Dr. Comella, dedicated to educating, informing and demystifying the public about the practice of regenerative stem cell therapy. The first webinar, "Facts About Stem Cell Therapy," which was broadcast live last Friday, can be accessed as a playback here: http://www.brainshark.com/Stemlogix/vu?pi=zHEz136Dfmz5OLvz0
Greenfield, who was voted in 2013 and 2014 as one of the world's top 100 most influential people in health and fitness by Greatist, coaches top CEO's, chefs, biohackers, endurance competitors, and professional athletes from the UFC, NHL, NBA, NFL and beyond – all while advising and investing in top companies in the health, fitness and nutrition industries. He was voted in 2008 as Personal Trainer of the Year by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and is a regular contributor to Huffington Post. He is also the CEO of Kion Health and hosts the highly popular Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast, one of the top-ranked health and fitness podcasts in iTunes. He has a bachelor's degree and master's degree from University of Idaho in sports science and exercise physiology and personal training, plus strength and conditioning certifications from the NSCA.
