Who is Active Stem?

Another marketing company blanketing social media with hype and webaloney.

LCR Health operating as scienceasasolution combines a handful of anti-aging compounds in a “proprietary blend” (in order to hide the actual amounts) and sells it for $46.99. This is a quote from their site, accessed on 04/13/17 at:

“What makes Active Stem different from other anti-aging supplements?

Active Stem works on a cellular level by boosting the proliferation of adult stem cells – or “master cells” – in your body. This repairs damage to your muscles, organs, skin, and brain.”

Now, healthy skeptics, repeat after me: “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”

What evidence does LCR Health provide to demonstrate that taking their product will increase stem cells and brain repair? NONE. ZERO. ZIP.

Yeah, it’s that bad. And getting worse. Someone oughta do something about that.


Was this Informative?
How was the Presentation?

    I usually agree with you guys but in this particular case, calling it a “scam” might be a bit harsh unless you consider the entire “anti aging” and vitamin supplement industry a scam all together. I have done a bit of research on this subject purely for my own personal use and although there is no “actual” proof that it increases stem cells, the fact is that all of the ingredients are known to help repair the body on a “cellular” level and have found that buying these ingredients separately would cost approximately the same or more. As far as the term “proprietary blend”, its just too easy to imitate a product especially if it shows strong interest, so I really can’t blame any company from trying to delay the eventual “generic” version. Everyone is different and results will always vary from person to person. There are too many products to mention that the scientific community claimed have no actual “evidence” of improving health or lifestyle but still have avid believers based on their own personal experience. The bottom line should always be to be skeptical of extreme claims but the results may be significant enough in any particular person to show overall improvement. I intend to purchase this product and try it for 30 days. I will provide another comment after use with my own personal results and experience. Thank you.

        I have been on for 3 weeks, partly. Very bad taste and working on mix of juices that can tune down the bad taste. Naked smoothies seem the best. Results were immediate. Skin better, psorasis, better, back aches better. I was a skeptic, but this makes the claim only to enhance the bodies output of stem cells to solve it’s own problems. Seems to be moving me in proper direction. More as we go.

    I just wants to make a question: all the studies mentioned in this video are False, as well the results that they said the studies has produce?
    This is the video:

      Hi Cesar, The studies mentioned in the video are not false, but the use of these references to support the product is misleading for two reasons. 1. the manufacturer of the product does not disclose the AMOUT of the listed ingredient. In the nutritional supplement industry, it is common for companies to provide 100 mg of a key nutrient, and support that with a reference to a published study. But when you read the published study, you find that they used 500 mg. In the case of LCR Health, you have to wonder why they do not disclose the amount of each ingredient. They will say that it is to protect the “secret” formula. I say, “webaloney.”
      2. The bait and switch is clearly evident, in that their repeated claim is for an increase in adult stem cells. NONE of the cited references demonstrate a measurable increase in stem cells in a human being. I agree that all the ingredients are valuable, but NONE have been shown to increase stem cell production; not individually or in any combination.

    The taste isn’t bad. I usually mix a scoop with hot water to dissolve it then I pour in some pomegranate juice. When I have taken it with only water, it’s okay tasting.

    My husband and I both take Active Stem and we have been taking it for over 6 months. It works. Less fatigue, blood pressure is down, and has improved my husband inflammation. It works and I’m not being paid to write this review for all you nay sayers.

    Recently purchased 90 days worth. I will try to keep you posted. So far so good! Only like the early morning to take this. It does better and I do eat about 4 saltines with this as I am only mixing with water. I have been taking for about a week and I do feel a difference. I am sure as with most things, I will know more as more time is past.

    i have tried it for 10 days and only 3 time per week
    my skin has amazingly healed my usual dry cracked and bleeding around tips of my fingers – no more newskin!
    It does taste bad in only water because of the berry flavoring. I bought it for use to help heal a torn miniscus but the positive skin side effect is enormous.
