Aunt Flow, as I fondly call it for menstruation, always visits women once a month and stays for 3 to 7 days. Most of us, women, find it annoying every time we anticipate her arrival, especially when she will come on days that we do not want her to be there.

However, no matter how annoyed we maybe, Aunt Flow (menstruation) will always be visiting us (until late 40s or early 50s), women, because it is the normal monthly discharge of blood and tissue from the uterus that results when ovulation is not followed by conception.

I cannot forget how my professor in Physiology coined menstruation as the "frustrated ovum." Yes, frustrated and that is why she pesters us during her monthly visit. But annoyed no more ladies because scientists are now investigating its usefulness.

According to C'Elle, study shows that "menstrual fluid contains self-renewing stem cells that can be easily collected, processed and cryo-preserved for potential cellular therapies that may emerge in the future." Further, the menstrual stem cells that come from the endometrium have "many properties and characteristics similar to both bone marrow and embryonic stem cells."

These stem cells from the menstrual blood may be utilized in the future to treat life-threatening medical conditions like diabetes, stroke and heart disease, and neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, and spinal cord injury.

So women, let's be part of this exciting and life-saving research by donating our own menstrual stem cells. Watch and listen C'Elle Testimonials to learn more. And Order C'elle Now and start saving future lives.
