Discover the benefits of nanoparticles
There have been many advancements in health and wellness since the turn of the 21st century, ranging from the world of sports nutrition to stem cells. With these advancements, athletes and fitness conscious people can now stay healthy and fit beyond years of intense training and competitive sports. So, there’s a sense of anticipation for what might happen next, and nanoparticles might be the next breakthrough that everyone’s been waiting for.
Nanoparticles are very similar to stem cells as they have regenerative properties, however, they are not identical. The nanoparticles are composed of hyaluronic acid, various proteins and growth factors that help cell repair. They can come from different human fluids from consenting donors.
Nurse practitioner, Kristian Adair, works in biologics and functional medicine. She began her career as a registered nurse and worked in advanced care areas. Adair has experience with cancer patients, post-surgery patients, pandemic, ER, critical care, and even neonatal and pediatric care. Her career eventually led her to sports medicine, where she began to network with professionals who specialized in the unique study of biologics. She also leads a very active lifestyle and considers herself a fitness enthusiast.
“Fitness is my life,” she says proudly. Adair has been studying nanoparticles for some time, and she’s excited about the potential they hold for many people looking to achieve personal fitness success. She makes it a priority to introduce nanoparticles to the clinics she works with because she is convinced of the positive differences they can make in those who receive application and undergo treatment.
“For clinics that work with alternative, functional, and holistic medicine, it’s well within reach,” Adair explained. “They can be used for a lot of different things.”
Advantages of nanoparticles
Nanoparticles can help reverse tissue damage and improve healing processes because proteins have properties that facilitate cell communication and promote tissue growth. Athletes in strength sports and people who are committed to developing their physique would benefit.
Plus, they can delay cartilage breakdown and help protect joints by forming a protective layer. Athletes who suffer from wear and tear from competition over a long period of time or people struggling with osteoarthritis may find this to be good news. Adair feels this would be a much better solution than using something that will only mask or relieve the symptoms.
“When you think of athletes and the stress they put on their muscles and joints, some of them are diagnosed with osteoarthritis at a very young age. Nanoparticles can actually repair and restore injured areas and treat the underlying problem.
Adair also pointed out that the benefits of nanoparticles are not designed to be short-term. Since they can help the person receiving them overcome the problems they are facing, they can return to the activities and sports they enjoy.
Nanoparticles will not only benefit athletes, but they can help everyone, even the military. Veterans who have served their country by touring while in service may have regular reminders of that in the form of wounds they need to heal or issues that linger long after they call it a career. Adair believes that nanoparticles would be an excellent ally for those who are or have been in service.
“Soldiers who have chronic injuries that affect their joints or even ligaments and tendons would benefit, but it goes far beyond musculoskeletal issues. Nanoparticles can help the cardiovascular system, even the lungs. It has been shown to help people who have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). That’s huge for veterans or other people who have been exposed to chemicals. These nanoparticles can reverse the damage to these lung tissues. »
People who even live with neurovascular problems, such as epilepsy or those who have seizures, can also see positive results from nanoparticle treatment.
“Many nerve problems are caused by initial trauma or inflammation without ever being fully repaired,” Adair explained. “These treatments can help do that.”
Apart from underlying health issues, Adair also shared that people who focus on anti-aging or who deal with cosmetic issues such as wrinkles or sunspots, hair loss and sagging skin can also see nanoparticle results.
“The results are gradual and every week you can notice improvements. There are different ways to apply the nanoparticles.
Treatments should be recommended by a doctor or provider. At the supplier’s discretion, the nanoparticles can be injected directly into the area to be treated, such as a joint for a local injury or the scalp if the intent is hair growth. It can also be applied by microneedling for anti-aging benefits or by intravenous injection for overall health. The advantage of IV administration is that the whole body receives treatment, unlike oral supplements or medications which are likely to be impacted by the digestive process. The number of treatments varies and is based on the problem being treated or if it is a general health and wellness issue. Aesthetic treatments have demonstrated results that last more than three years.
Adair shared that people who just want to focus on optimal health would benefit from just one treatment. However, people with one or more problems, such as those discussed above, may consider several treatments.
“Nanoparticles are not intended to temporarily reduce adverse symptoms or act as a band-aid treatment. So you won’t notice the results tomorrow,” she advised. “They stimulate your body to heal itself, so the benefits take time.”
“The highlight for athletes is that it’s something that can improve recovery and improve performance, helping them in the long run and for life,” she explained.
One of the problems potential patients may face is finding places or doctors who offer nanoparticle treatments, as they are not readily available everywhere. Physicians and primary care providers who want to offer treatments can contact a biologic drug company, such as Organicell, to order them. “If it’s more for quality of life, functional, or overall health reasons, you might consider going to a provider that offers alternative medicine,” Adair suggests.
There may be little exposure to nanoparticles now, but the FDA is studying nanoparticles for potential approval as of this writing. Adair is confident that there will be a lot more exposure to come, which she hopes will ultimately lead to more people improving their quantity and quality of life.
