Spermidine is a naturally occurring compound found in various foods that has gained significant attention for its potential health benefits.
Think of it like a ""house cleaner"" for your cells: it helps to tidy up, remove cellular clutter, and ensure things run smoothly. This cleaning process, scientifically termed autophagy, is believed to play a key role in ageing, making spermidine a topic of interest for those keen on healthy ageing and longevity.
Additionally, this compound offers a range of benefits, from supporting heart health to possibly bolstering our brain function. By incorporating spermidine, research suggests this is a step towards better overall wellness and potentially a longer, healthier life.
The need to know
What are the benefits?
Longevity for heart
Longevity autophagy activator
Spermidine's primary mechanism revolves around autophagy activation.
Promoting this process encourages cells to recycle damaged components, potentially slowing down the ageing process, reducing cellular waste, and allowing cells to function optimally.
Furthermore, its effects on reducing oxidative stress and inflammation might be at the heart of its cardiovascular benefits.
How will I know its working?
Improved general well-being and vitality.
Enhanced cognitive clarity and brain function.
Noticeable support in cardiovascular health.
When to take it?
Take 1 capsule daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.
Serving Size 1 Vegetarian Capsule
Per Serving% Daily
98% Spermidine HCl
* Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
