is an exercise physiologist by training. He spent 25 out of the
last 35 years as an adjunct or assistant professor at some academic
preparation level or universities. Don has always had one foot in
the fitness industry, whether in sales, marketing or education
roles or even applied sciences.
last job in the human performance section was as a sports scientist
for Ohio State, working closely with the wrestling program. He was
there from 2015-2018. The coach at Ohio wanted Don there, but the
athletic department did not care much for his presence.
made the athletic department make decisions they did not want to,
so he exited when he received an offer to enter the cannabis
industry. While working in exercise science, particularly in the
recovered space, they worked with heart rate variability, which is
used to measure athlete readiness.
the process of doing this, a couple of the pro guys in the industry
asked Don what he thinks about cannabis. Don did not know much
about cannabis at the time, but if his NCAA athletes tested
positive, they would get kicked off the program.
- Cannabis has been stigmatized so much that it
is hard to find excellent and accurate information on the subject.
However, with some push and resources from friends of his and an
incredible offer, Don decided to enter the cannabis
What does Spermedine do, and what is it responsible for?
- Spermidine triggers an interesting
intracellular process called Autophagy. It is a word seen in the
health and fitness community. It is associated with fasting and
intermittent fasting that triggers autophagy.
- Looking at Spermidine’s experimental models for
extending longevity, the one universal model is calorie
restriction. If you want increased longevity across the board,
calorie restriction is the critical factor to do that.
it is a challenge in itself, and you cannot starve yourself to
immortality. Autophagy ends up being the critical process so that
when there is a calorie restriction in your environment, your cells
recognize this and they begin a process called intracellular
cell could have a protein that misformed and is no longer
functional, but it is sitting there, gumming up the rest of the
process. During autophagy and intracellular cleaning, that
non-functioning cell gets used up and makes space for new
- Spermidine acts as a trigger for autophagy and
intracellular cleaning, therefore helping people live healthier,

How has COVID affected Spermidine? (21:18)
- Looking into Spermidine and the research that
is out there already, Autophagy's process contributes to immunity
drastically. Don has a paper that had been accepted and is in final
edits right now for a world-renowned journal that shows spermidine
supplementation to human sells stops COVID transmissions by
- Immunity is a big deal, especially in these
times. Dirty cells do not promote immunity, so when we start to
look at the process of autophagy, its relationship to immunity
becomes more significant.

autophagy is rarely allowed to happen within our bodies. With the

their metabolic health.
relation between poverty and COVID is high. People in populations
that are heavily crowded within inner cities are not crystal clear
and clean suburb classes. Even COVID has also affected them; they
have not been hit as hard as the already lower class populations
- Metabolic health could, however, be a problem
found within both populations. People need to start paying
attention to all the intracellular activators they have to help
them fix and improve their immune systems' metabolisms in the
SpermidineLIFE® is the world's first naturally extracted and
clinically tested dietary supplement to promote cellular renewal.
The active ingredient, spermidine, is considered key to slowing
down the cellular aging process. As the body ages, spermidine
levels decrease, along with the self-renewing power of its
