In 2000, Dr. John Capello was stricken with Parkinson Disease symptoms and was forced to retire from the active practice of medicine. This facilitated a search that led him in 2005 to uncover scientific data regarding the ability of certain botanicals to increase adult stem cells in the body’s circulation. Many hours of research were invested by Dr. Cappello to validate the reality of this phenomenon as it related to adult stem cells and the body’s own way to renew itself. Fortunately, Dr. Cappello discovered a way to improve upon what was then available and made it part of his personal daily regimen. Within several months, not only did the Parkinson Disease symptoms begin to disappear but he also experienced improved joint functions. Through his personal experience, Dr. Capello developed a line of patented and patent pending nutraceuticals that contain the science of stem cell nutrition. The products were made available through a direct sales channel that established a large number of loyal customers who were sold on the health benefits.
