Supplementation With Spermidine May Help Improve Memory

Spermidine is a naturally occurring compound that plays an important role in the metabolism of cells and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. A new study has found that supplementation with spermidine may help improve memory.

Eighty-five adults between the ages of 60 and 96 participated in the study. Half of the participants consumed a wheat germ roll containing 3.3 mg of spermidine daily for 3 months. The other half consumed a wheat bran roll containing 1.9 mg of spermidine. The researchers administered memory tests at baseline and at the end of the study period. They also measured levels of spermidine concentration.

Participants in the high spermidine group saw significant improvements in performance on the memory tests compared to those in the low spermidine group. Participants in the high spermidine group with mild or moderate dementia saw the most significant improvements. In addition, spermidine concentration levels increased in the high spermidine group, compared to no increase in the low spermidine group.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt. It was published in the May, 2021 issue of the journal Wiener klinische Wochenschrift.
