Spermidine may have a preventative effect on age-related cardiovascular diseases. Spermidine may improve cellular respiration by increasing the mitochondrial content of heart cells. Myocardial muscle cells, the so-called cardiomyocytes, which are responsible for the contraction of the heart, take up spermidine via a specific cellular transporter, potentially triggering autophagy. Increased NO availability in these cells may lead to reduced systemic inflammation.
