p> I wanted to write to update you on my experience with the BPC 157 Wolverine Complex. I want to start with a recap of my medical background. I am 45 years old in October; in July of 2017 I was medically retired due to a partial knee replacement that did not have a good outcome. Since then I live in an almost constant state of pain. That coupled with my other knee being rebuilt, double ankle surgeries; mesh surgery to my stomach (x2); multiple broken bones and various other issues have made that pain worsen over time. Upon retiring I started to rebuild my lost muscle and began lifting heavy again. Although I have gain my muscle back (thanks to Pellets/ GHRP2 / GHRP 6) my pain only continued to get worse. I started the Wolverine Complex approximately a month ago; and have noted the following: -My day to day pain has decreased -My tendinitis (both biceps/elbows) has disappeared -The arthritis in my knees, ankles and feet has improved.


Processing and Safety

How are the cells processed and are they safe?

  • The umbilical cord is processed in the hospital according to the rules and regulation of the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).
  • Approximately 4 weeks prior to a scheduled caesarean section, the mothers OB/GYN asks her if she would like to keep and store her unborn child’s umbilical cord for future use.
  • If the mother declines then she is asked if she would like to donate the umbilical cord. If she agrees, she undergoes a review of her medical history, social history, and a blood test.
  • If she is deemed an acceptable donor according to prevailing rules of the AATB, then at the time of her caesarean section an experienced technician will clamp the umbilical cord, take it to a clean room, and remove the contents of the umbilical cord and place it into a blood bag.
  • The bag of umbilical cord blood is then delivered to the lab for processing. Once at the lab, a sample of the umbilical cord blood is sent to a 3rd party independent FDA registered lab for testing  according to United States Pharmacopeia rule 71 (U.S.P. 71), which is a test for known communicable diseases.
  • While that test is taking place the stem cells are then processed and removed from the red blood cell products. A sample of the finished stem cell product is then sent to a different 3rd party independent FDA registered lab for sterility testing.
  • Only after both lab reports come back as “clean” and have passed the regulatory requirements, are the processed umbilical cord stem cells available for distribution.

Are Umbilical Cord Stem cells from another person safe to put into my body?
Yes, allogeneic (taken from another person of the same species) cells are safe to put into your body. When the umbilical cord is processed, all the red blood cell components that could cause a negative reaction are removed.  Also, the umbilical cord cells are naïve/immature and do NOT react the way a mature adult cell would act. “Mesenchymal stem cells produce huge quantities of bio-molecules, some of which are immunosuppressive; MSC’s put up a curtain of molecules around themselves that allows donor (allogenic) MSC’s to be transplanted into a recipient, free from an immune response.

Do Stem Cells cause cancer or cause cancer to grow?
No, the fact that stem cells do not duplicate themselves within the body is a major reason that stem cells do not proliferate nor cause cancer to grow. Multiple studies are being done around the world showing that stem cells can actually fight cancer and stop the growth of cancer cells. This research is ongoing and the exact effects of stem cells for the treatment of cancer is, as of yet, unknown.
