Announced this week, Upgrade Labs will sell the anti-aging dietary supplement, spermidineLIFE from its US brick and mortar retail locations throughout California.
“spermidineLIFE has seen significant interest from ‘biohackers’ for its ability to trigger the body’s cell renewal process and autophagy, which has very promising implications for maintaining youthfulness into older age,” says Daniel Dietz, CEO of Longevity Labs.
“Based on our customer interests, partnering with Upgrade Labs was the perfect match as its clients are interested in achieving the highest level of youthfulness.”
Containing thiamine (vitamin B1) and zinc, spermidineLIFE’s key active ingredient is spermidine, an aliphatic polyamine compound found in ribosomes and living tissue and considered core in maintaining youthful cell function.
Discovered in semen, but found in almost all plants in trace amounts, Longevity Labs claims that spermidine produces the same benefits as fasting and autophagy by cleaning cells of toxic material.
spermidineLIFE, which was launched in Europe in 2019 has been recognised by EFSA as a Novel Food. It was awarded the German Innovation Award 2021 in May this year, following initial success in 2020, where it was named most innovative product at the Pharma Trend – Image & Innovation Awards.
Commenting on this latest agreement, Dave Asprey, CEO of Upgrade Labs says, “I am happy to now offer spermidineLIFE from Longevity Labs because it helps the body replace damaged cells with younger healthier cells. Getting younger is a reality!”
“Upgrade Labs uses cutting-edge technology to exponentially improve health at the cellular level. Having more energy and looking better starts at the cellular level.”
Asprey, also the founder of Bulletproof Coffee, adds that spermidineLIFE will be offered at a significant discount to Upgrade Labs members. The product is also available in the US via its website, launched in August 2020.
Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Vienna, Austria, with production facilities in Graz, Austria, Longevity Labs also make available spermidineLIFE Memory+ to EU consumers.
The product is said to contain zinc to support brain cell renewal while also boosting brain performance and mental well-being using iron, thiamine (vitamin B1), saffron and Brahmi.
The range also extends to spermidineLIFE Immune, that combines spermidine with shiitake mushroom powder, vitamin C, zinc and vitamin B1.
