Taiwanese researchers have identified one possible reason that practitioners of the martial art tai chi tout its health benefits: shadow boxing apparently reinvigorates stem cells.

After more than a decade of short-term cures to erectile dysfunction, most aimed at symptoms rather than the underlying issues of nerve damage, a new approach has emerged from adult stem cell technology developed by RNL Bio. Dr. Ji Youl Lee and the RNL Stem Cell Technology Institute team, working at St. Mary’s Hospital in Seoul, found in animal studies that adipose (fat) derived adult human stem cells, grown in culture, were very effective in treating cavernous nerve injury.
When rats with cavernous nerve injury, the equivalent of erectile dysfunction in humans, were treated with RNL Bio’s patented

“Stem cells are early stage cells, formed primarily in bone marrow that can develop into any type of cell — heart, brain, or other tissues. Stem cells circulate with the blood, congregating in diseased or damaged tissues, where they replace the injured cells with healthy new cells.
“Stem cells form the body’s internal repair and rejuvenation system. Physicians consistently report that a greater number of the body’s
