The best longevity molecule.

Spermidine dissolves unwanted debris that is clogging up the systems, especially in the elderly, like me and Janet. Beans are the only food that contains therapeutic dosages of spermidine. Maybe that is why poor peasants all over the world live longer than the wealthy capitalists.

Dr. Joseph M. Mercola, D.O., who is a well known practitioner of alternative medicine and internet personality, has produced one of the better written and more informative articles about spermidine consumption, including its link to increased longevity, reduced risk of food allergies in children, cardioprotective properties and use in diabetes management, and its protective effects against liver damage and cancer.

Of particular interest is the list he provides of foods rich in spermidine, after which he states:

"Research performed in 2011 at Sweden's Karolinska Institute found vegetables and
meat products to be among the richest sources of spermidine. The scientists noted the
content of polyamines in aged cheese, however, which has the highest spermidine
content of all dairy products, varied considerably between studies."

Dr. Mercola then concludes:

"As you can see above, there are plenty of foods rich in spermidine from
which to choose. Since you cannot afford to miss out on this beneficial
antiaging compound that has been shown to possess anticancer and
cardioprotective properties, you'll want to ensure your daily diet includes
one or more spermidine-rich foods."

I think Dr. Mercola is absolutely wonderful. He also runs 3 miles a day although he is 65. Most of the doctors who are antagonistic against him can't even walk across the room without huffing and puffing.
