What is spermidine?

Answer: Spermidine is a naturally occurring “polyamine” that is present in ribosomes and living tissues.

Is spermidine safe to eat?

Answer: Absolutely! Early studies show that a spermidine-rich diet may even contribute to a longer lifespan. It is likely that most foods you eat every day as part of your usual diet naturally contain spermidine. Some foods contain more than other foods.

Where does your spermidine come from?

Answer: We scoured the earth for spermidine-rich foods to extract to create spermidineLIFE®. Ultimately we found that spermidine-rich wheat germ is one of the highest concentrations of natural spermidine. We test our wheat germ before and after our proprietary extraction process to ensure our supplements are spermidine-rich, safe, and up to our quality standards.

Why is spermidineLIFE® good for you?

Answer: Early studies show that spermidineLIFE® may trigger the cellular process known as “autophagy” in our bodies. Studies have shown that autophagy could have a number of significant benefits for human cells. We recommend that you always do your own research and always consult your doctor prior to taking any new supplement. We hope that our website might provide you a head-start with your research into spermidine and wheat germ extract.

What is in a spermidineLIFE® capsule?

Answer: spermidineLIFE® capsules contain natural wheat germ extract, zinc, and thiamine. To maintain quality control and product consistency, our capsules are created with and coated with commonly-used food-safe ingredients including hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, food starch-modified, shellac, talc, and glycerin.

I am allergic to wheat, can I take spermidineLIFE®?

Answer: As always, we recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to taking any new supplement. spermidineLIFE contains wheat.  Though our product only contains around 1.36 mg of gluten per recommended daily dose, spermidineLIFE is naturally extracted from wheat germ and will contain wheat and gluten. If you are allergic to wheat, gluten, have gluten insensitivity, we do not recommend taking spermidineLIFE®.

Can spermidineLIFE® trigger food allergies?

Answer: We recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to taking any new supplement. spermidineLIFE capsules contain wheat germ extract, zinc, thiamine, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, food starch-modified, shellac, talc, and glycerin. spermidineLIFE® contains wheat. 

Does spermidineLIFE® contain gluten?

Answer: Yes, spermidineLIFE contains wheat and gluten. spermidineLIFE® contains around 1,700 mg of gluten per 1kg of spermidineLIFE extract, or about 1.36mg of gluten per recommended daily dose.

Are spermidineLIFE® capsules vegetarian?

Answer: Yes! spermidineLIFE® capsules are vegetarian.

Are spermidineLIFE® capsules vegan?

Answer: No, spermidineLIFE® capsules are not vegan. The content of the capsules is vegan and can be consumed independent from the casing. If you are vegan, we recommend discarding the casing and mixing the capsule contents with your favorite food or beverage. The casing contains trace amounts of shellac used to improve shelf life.

Where can I buy spermidine?

Answer: Spermidine is a naturally-occurring polyamine and is present in low amounts in many of the foods that you probably already eat as part of your normal diet. For those who wish to take additional spermidine as a dietary supplement, spermidineLIFE® is available via our online store here.

How much spermidine should I take daily?

Answer: As always, we recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to making changes to your diet or taking a new dietary supplement. Our recommended daily dose of spermidineLIFE contains 1mg of spermidine. We third-party lab test every batch of spermidineLIFE® wheat germ extract to verify that our daily dose contains 1mg of spermidine. Early research leads us to recommend that everyone should consume increased levels of spermidine for life to maintain optimum cellular performance and longevity.

How long does spermidineLIFE® take to work?

Answer: Your body will take time to adjust to increased levels of autophagy and reap the benefits of spermidine supplementation. Our early research shows that it may take at least one month of spermidine supplementation at 1mg per day to begin to see positive indications. As early research shows, spermidine supplementation may have a wide variety of positive indications. Every human body is unique. Some humans may see relatively immediate benefits from spermidine supplementation and others may see little realized change as some positive indications are very long-term. We recommend that you occasionally journal about your body’s reactions to spermidine supplementation and share with us via social media about your progress during your spermidineLIFE® journey. Pay particular attention to any weight gain and loss, sleep quality and energy levels, skin and hair condition, or injury/illness recovery. Our early anecdotal experience shows that these may be the areas that you may most readily recognize positive indications. Others such as longevity, cardiovascular health, immune system support, liver health, etc. may be unrecognizable on a daily physiological basis.

I am a diabetic, should I take spermidineLIFE®?

Answer: As always, we recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to making changes to your diet or taking a new dietary supplement. Early research shows that spermidine and spermidineLIFE® may have positive indications that may benefit many diabetics.

Where is the best place to find information on spermidine?

Answer: As always, we recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to making changes to your diet or taking a new dietary supplement. We also recommend that you thoroughly do your own research on spermidine and its positive indications prior to taking spermidineLIFE or making changes to your diet. We hope that the resources provided to you on our website will be a good starting point for your research. Additionally, studies on spermidine, autophagy, and spermidineLIFE® have been conducted globally and have been published in many readily-available scientific journals. Other resources may be readily available online. As always, feel free to reach out via social media with any questions you may have that we might be able to assist with.
