The miracle of birth. Have you ever thought about it? I remember my daughter being born and being awe struck by the onslaught of emotions that swept over me. And for those of us who have been there, explaining those emotions to another who is about to go through the same experience with the same gravity and impact is simply impossible. I recall trying to describe this to a friend of mine who had married into an insta-family and had none of his own. He adopted those two children and then he and his wife decided to have a couple of their own. I harken back to asking him if he was prepared and he said it was no problem, he had two kids and this would be the third.  Taken-a-back by this, I asked him if he was sure. He said yes. Two days later he called me from the delivery room floor with his newborn in his hands, crying to tell me, NO, he was not prepared!

But, all the emotion aside, why is it a miracle? What is the miracle? As a Christian, I can site chapter and verse on the miracle of child birth. But let’s look at the science that goes into making mammalian birth possible.

From a scientific standpoint, the miracle truly starts with the whole reproductive cycle at the genesis of the pregnancy itself. The first “huh, you don’t say” for me, is the fact that despite all the body’s natural defenses against being infected with parasites, fungus and bacteria, mammalian females are able to be “infected” and then allow this “thing” to grow inside it without rejecting or expelling it. It is simply amazing that the body does not attack the embryo to reject and expel it as foreign tissue. Nature wraps the new embryo in a membrane made of chorion and amnion. The chorion being the outside facing membrane that is on the mother’s side and the amnion being on the inside which is the foal’s side.  This environment isolates the young life and protects it from the mother’s immune system which allows it to experience the greatest growth spurt the mammal will have in its life.

It is this very miracle that makes AniCell’s products come to life.  Inside the body, the amnion is naturally immune privileged and has been used in humans and animals without the risk of rejection.  Other properties of amnion include:

  • Naturally anti-microbial and able to resist certain infections

  • Naturally anti-fibrotic avoiding fibroblast activation and fibrotic tissue production such as scar tissue

  • Naturally anti-inflammatory

Unify these innate characteristics with the growth properties that sustained this amazing growth spurt such as pluripotent mesenchymal stem cells, collagen, carbohydrates, lipids, hyaluronic acid, laminin, fibronectin, cytokines, proteoglycans and other complex growth factors vital to growing connective tissue, amnion has the all-natural regenerative properties that preserves the ACTIVE LIFE of animals.
