BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, 15th October 2012– Kittitian-born Dr. Allan C. Somersall, has been appointed to the prestigious Board of Stemtech International, Inc., a pioneer in the field of stem cell nutrition.
The Sandy Point-born Allan C. Somersall, M.D., Ph.D. is a renowned physician, scientist and gifted speaker and lives in Toronto, Canada.
“The creation of our Scientific Advisory Board showcases the high level of dedication we at Stemtech have to continuing clinical research and education related to our groundbreaking products,” said Ray C. Carter, Jr., Stemtech’s co-founder, president and CEO.
“Dr. Somersall will be a key advocate for stem cell nutrition, helping us spread the word regarding the importance of this new paradigm of wellness. Working closely with Christian Drapeau, co-founder and chief science officer, Dr. Somersall and our Scientific Advisory Board will be keys to the next step in the company’s evolution.”
During more than 30 years of practicing family medicine with specialization in ophthalmology and dermatology, Dr. Somersall has pursued and studied forward-thinking approaches to natural health as he also developed expertise in writing and lecturing.
He was attracted to Stemtech, he says, because, “Stem cell science is on the cutting edge of health and medicine today, since adult stem cells have been shown to be the natural renewal process of the body. Once I learned that Stemtech’s patented nutritional supplements have been proven to support the effectiveness of the body’s adult stem cells, I knew I wanted to help get this important message out to people everywhere.”
A gifted and much sought-after speaker, Dr. Somersall will be traveling throughout Canada and the United States, speaking on radio and television as well as holding seminars for Stemtech Independent Distributors and members of the public about the importance of stem cell nutrition, which he calls “the state-of-the-art intervention for people to live long and live healthy.” He is also currently working on a comprehensive book on the subject for the layman that is due in 2013.
Following Dr. Somersall’s recent presentation at Stemtech’s North American Convention, Christian Drapeau noted, “Allan combines a charismatic on-stage presence with a gift for making even complex material both memorable and enjoyable. People are in for a treat when he visits their area. I look forward to the contribution he and his fellow Scientific Board members will make as we work together to share Stemtech’s message.” He has lived in Canada since he matriculated at the University of Toronto in 1970.
In the years following, he earned a bachelor’s degree (with honors), a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in chemistry before completing his degree in medicine. He has authored five books on natural health subjects and successful living and has both authored and co-authored a number of original peer-reviewed publications.
The seven members of Stemtech’s Scientific Advisory Board work in concert with the company’s Business Advisory Board whose six prestigious members—led by Ambassador Ray Flynn of Boston—have lent their expertise to Stemtech since early 2012. Dr. Somersall and the Stemtech Scientific Advisory Board will advance the company’s mission to spread wellness and prosperity around the world.
Founded in 2005 by President & CEO Ray C. Carter, Jr., and Chief Science Officer Christian Drapeau, Stemtech began as a company with a single patented product, StemEnhance®, a unique formula of concentrated blue-green algae, aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA). In the years since, Stemtech has developed products for both humans and animals that enhance the natural renewal system of the body.
Drapeau, a botanical researcher and pioneer in stem cell science, has demonstrated that adult stem cells function as the natural renewal system of the body. Stemtech’s products enhance the work of the body’s stem cells by supporting the release of more stem cells, helping to circulate them in the blood and migrate them into tissues, where they can perform their daily function of renewal for optimal health.
Under the guidance of Carter, a leader in the direct sales industry and talented business strategist who heads a very experienced executive team, Stemtech supports a robust network of independent distributors meeting a worldwide demand that encourages global expansion. The company has open markets in more than twenty countries on six continents.
