What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are unspecialized cells in our bodies that have the capacity to change into any healthy cell in our body. Meaning they can change into skin, bones, heart and muscle cells to name a few. They have the ability to replicate substantially as compared to normal somatic cells such as skin. Stem cells are located throughout our body in almost every organ and tissue such as bone marrow, fat, teeth, muscles, etc. However, as other cells in our body, stem cells also age as we do.
