Recently, the fantastic benefits of amniotic fluid (AF) have been discovered by physicians and scientists as a great alternative to surgery and pain treatment. Amniotic fluid possesses no living stem cells but it does contain an extensive array of many other regenerative components and molecules which increase your body’s self-repair ability.
Amniotic fluid is obtained from consenting, healthy mothers scheduled to undergo caesarean sections. The collection of amniotic fluid from these pregnant moms doesn’t in any way affect the baby, the mother, or the delivery process and once donated, it is processed, screened, sterilized, and finally frozen. This fluid is rich in growth factors, beneficial structural proteins like cytokines, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and many other nutrients proven to have the ability to aid tissue regeneration, enhance cellular repair, and reduce inflammation.
Amniotic fluid is considered “immunologically privileged” because it doesn’t exhibit an immune reaction like rejection. This makes it possible to be injected with amniotic fluid without any need for blood type matching.
