Why Our Bodies Need Spermidine
Spermidine! The powerful anti-aging molecule with a funny name. What's the deal with the name? No, there's no sperm in Spermidine. And Spermidine isn't derived from sperm. It got it's name because it was first discovered in sperm. But it's naturally produced by our bodies and found in a wide range of organisms and foods.
Spermidine, a type of Polyamine (meaning it has two or more primary amino groups), is a cellular component that plays an essential role in cell growth and repair.
As we age, our bodies produce lower amounts of Spermidine, contributing to impaired autophagy and reduced cellular function.
It's essential to maintain high levels of Spermidine in order to keep our autophagy levels high, our cells healthy, and our cardiovascular, metabolic, & neurological systems supported.
Fermented Wheat Germ Extract is one of the most potent sources of Spermidine found in nature.
