Spermidine-rich wheat germ extract
Spermidine first isolated from Wheat Germ, is a water-soluble polyamine ingredient that occurs naturally in all tissues of our human bodies and also found in many other organisms like animals, plants, and typical dietary foods.
Spermidine is a small molecule with a molecular weight of 145.25, and unique CAS Registry Number as 124-20-9. It’s stable at room temperature. The color of Spermidine-rich wheat germ extract is white to yellowish powder, while for synthetic spermidine powder, the color is white to off-white. Spermidine is also available in the chloride form as spermidine trihydrochloride or spermidine 3 HCL (CAS 334-50-9).

There are two main ways for obtaining bulk spermidine, one is from natural foods, the other is from chemical synthesis.
There are several foods high in spermidine, such as wheat germ extract, fruits, grapefruit, yeast, mushrooms, meat, soybeans, cheese, Japanese Natto (fermented soybeans), green peas, rice bran, cheddar, etc. That’s why the Mediterranean diet is so popular since a high polyamine content in it. Below is the amount of spermidine content in foods from Wikipedia:
According to the literature, wheat germ is the best food that has the highest spermidine.
Spermidine is made of Fermented wheat Germ raw materials, through cleaning, slicing, water extraction, concentration, drying, pulverization, and sieving to obtain powder, and then tested and packaged in GMP workshop, and finally qualified Spermidine powder is obtained.
