Where Spermidine Comes From

Spermidine is a naturally occurring polyamine. It’s found in all living tissues of plants and animals.

Spermidine and Your Diet

Humans naturally take in spermidine when they consume organic matter as part of their diet. So, most things you already eat contain spermidine.

The amount of spermidine, however, varies depending on the food you're consuming.
