Healthy ageing: a topic that is becoming increasingly important for more and more consumers. The population is getting older: 25% of the European population is already over 60 years old, and the trend is rising1. With a higher life expectancy in general, many people no longer just want to “grow old”. Nowadays it is about healthy ageing, a high quality of life into old age is strived for. Consumers are taking a proactive approach and are more aware than ever of the connection between ageing, health and nutrition. Stimulating autophagy with the right food can be a delicious way contribute to healthy aging.
What is “Healthy Ageing”?
Slowing down the ageing process and thus preserving people’s health and quality of life – that is the goal of Healthy Ageing. In addition to to genetic predisposition, factors that can be influenced by the individual play a role here. Nutrition is one of them. For this reason, using food to stay healthy longer has become a trend in all age segments, from Gen Z to the best agers.2

Functional Foods & Spermidine
Functional foods, meaning foods that can positively affect health due to specific nutrients, are receiving more and more attention in this context. Spermidine, as a natural cell protector and natural autophagy-promoting polyamine, is one of these nutrients. Hence, spermidine-containing functional foods have also seen a significant increase in new product launches in recent years.3

What is the autophagy
The autophagy process is some kind of “cell recycling”. Stimulating this cell regeneration process – e.g. through spermidine in high concentrations – can lead to health-protecting and life-prolonging effects. And: spermidine is the only endogenous substance that has a positive effect on autophagy for SpermidineEvo® we use wheat germ because it has the highest spermidine concentration of all foods – higher than soybeans, buckwheat or rice.
