Several thousand studies confirm the immense potential of spermidine for health. The body's own substance promotes the self-cleansing process.
Spermidine was first discovered in male seminal fluid, which also gave the substance its name. But it is now known that spermidine occurs as a messenger substance in every body cell and has far-reaching positive effects on health. This took time, because for a long time researchers thought that spermidine was only important for the growth of sperm. Until 2009, when Austrian scientists Frank Madeo and Tobias Eisenberg made the groundbreaking discovery and were able to prove in a study at the University of Graz that spermidine causes our cells to age more slowly.
"This is an essential finding for a perhaps longer, but quite certainly healthier life. In the meantime, more than 13,000 studies have clarified the immense potential of spermidine. It is not for nothing that spermidine is also called a miracle cure for old age," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.
The focus is on autophagy. This is a complicated, endogenous self-cleansing process that breaks down molecular waste in the cells. Every day, for example, defective cell components, damaged and pathogenic proteins, toxic substances etc. accumulate. Autophagy, the body's own waste disposal system, now ensures that all the junk is regularly removed. For this, sufficient spermidine is needed. This is the reason why spermidine is also present in the entire human body.
"In order to boost autophagy again, it is therefore advisable to put more spermidine-rich foods on the plate. This signals the cells to start the self-cleaning process again, which in turn protects against deposits, premature ageing and diseases," emphasises Frank Felte.
It is estimated that about one third of the spermidine we need for autophagy is produced by our body cells themselves. In addition, spermidine is produced by certain intestinal bacteria. Thus, our body produces about 50 percent of the spermidine content itself, which is needed for the autophagy mechanism.
Natura Vitalis has created an anti-aging programme for the entire body with "Spermidin - High Dose". "In order to cover the high demand for spermidine for a long-term effect, researchers consider an additional intake of spermidine through dietary supplements to be sensible," emphasises Frank Felte. "This also allows you to control the amount you take in much better. Since spermidine is a natural substance, it has no side effects and can therefore be taken additionally in capsule form without hesitation." One capsule of the Natura Vitalis product contains 2.5 milligrams of spermidine. Taken in the morning and evening, the dietary supplement in combination with a healthy, balanced diet means that people always supply their bodies with sufficient amounts of highly concentrated spermidine.
Speaking of a healthy diet, spermidine is found in certain foods such as peas, soybeans, broccoli, cauliflower), whole grains, apples, pears, grapefruits, lettuce, mushrooms, seeds, nuts and potatoes. The king among the spermidine suppliers is the wheat germ. This contains more spermidine than any other food, making it the undisputed number 1 when it comes to spermidine content in food.
