Tasty Snack Fights Cancer, Boosts Life Span 25%
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
We all want to live a long, cancer-free life.
But it seems like every time you turn around, there’s a doctor or news reporter telling you that just about everything can give you cancer.
As it turns out, though, this simply isn’t true.
Because researchers from Texas A&M University have discovered that one of your favorite treats may actually reduce your risk of cancer and increase your life span by up to 25 percent.
I’m talking about cheese!
And if you’re not already eating this satisfying snack, this most recent study will make you want to.
For the experiment, researchers fed spermidine, a special compound found in aged cheese, to mice predisposed to develop liver cancer.
Amazingly, the spermidine significantly reduced the mice’s risk of developing liver cancer.
But the good news didn’t end there…
The spermidine also increased their life spans by a whopping 25 percent!
Just imagine what all those extra years could mean for you.
Experts concluded the spermidine is so powerful because it can help shield the body from oxidative stress — one of the key drivers of all disease.
Spermidine supplements aren’t readily available at the moment. But that could change soon.
Human clinical trials focusing on spermidine’s effect on cognitive decline are currently underway. We will update you on the results in the future.
In the meantime, you can get spermidine from eating aged cheeses or other delicious foods like mushrooms, whole grains and legumes.
 Spermidine prolongs lifespan and prevents liver fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma by activating MAP1S-mediated autophagy
