In this episode, Leslie Kenny joins Dr. Olli Sovijärvi to discuss the various health benefits of Spermidine, its natural food sources, and recommended supplementation.
Leslie Kenny is an Oxford-based entrepreneur born in California and a graduate of Berkeley and Harvard Business School. In her 30s, her life changed dramatically when she was diagnosed with an array of autoimmune conditions - lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism. Her doctors told her there was no cure and that they could only be managed with strong immunosuppressants.
Raised with the mentality that it's best to work with your body's innate wisdom to heal itself, Leslie chose to instead support her immune system in its natural abilities. As well as becoming a certified health coach, Leslie began helping scientists at leading European universities, including the University of Oxford, to raise money for their health discoveries.
It was at a meeting with one such scientist that she learned of a compound called spermidine. Because it was a natural and food-derived compound, not a drug that would bring in more money, no one was interested in promoting it. So with the support of esteemed University of Oxford scientists and doctors that make up our Board of Scientific and Clinical Advisors, Leslie launched Oxford Healthspan with its flagship product, the plant-derived spermidine supplement Primeadine®.
