The umbilical cord matrix is a rich source of stem cells that produce neurons, which transmit signals throughout the nervous system. The glia in umbilical cord matrix supports the function of neurons and has been very effective in treating degenerative joint diseases as well as ligament and tendon injuries.


Where does umbilical cord matrix come from?

The umbilical cord attaches a fetus to the uterus of the pregnant mother so that it can receive nutrients and expel waste. The cushiony lining within it is called Wharton’s jelly, and this is where the stem cells reside, and from which they are harvested. The umbilical cord is typically discarded after birth, so the stem cells from Wharton’s jelly are not controversial, abundantly available, and can be stored cryogenically for later use.
