Stem cells play a crucial part in repairing the human body by repairing damaged organs. These stemcells cannot repair tissue or organs when they cannot reach them in sufficient quantity.

  1. Free amount of stemcells in the blood.
  2. The flow rate of the blood
  3. How hard is it to reach the target location (eg; the organ we want to repair).

Nutrients are the nourishing substances in food that are essential for the growth, development and maintenance of body functions. Essential meaning that if a nutrient is not present, aspects of function and therefore human health decline. When nutrient intake does not regularly meet the nutrient needs dictated by the cell activity, the metabolic processes slow down or even stop.

In this context the amount and type of nutrients depends on the cell activity. In short the more activity the more nutrients are required. According to Teresa A. Marshall and Connie C. Mobley an improper diet and to much or less activity can cause chronic deases.
