CAROL Vorderman has revealed her surprising secret behind her youthful good looks – and it's not for the weak.
The TV host, 61, revealed she takes supplements – including one containing an ingredient called Spermidine.
What is Spermidine?
Spermidine is found naturally in cells and certain whole foods. It is also available in supplement form. It is predicted to be the longevity supplement as it mimicks the effects that caloric restriction has on cells in the body. It can boost the health and longevity of a health lifestyle, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
In a video, posted on her Instagram, the British TV presenter, told fans that the reason why she feels "on top of the world" at the age of 62, and why she manages to still look good is because she takes these supplements.
In the video, Carol begins: "When you get to know me, you'll know that I treat life as one big experiment, and I love it. "
She explained to her fans that she has been looking into "the latest science-backed compounds, Spermidine activates a cellular cleanup process called, autophagy. "
Adding: "If you haven't heard of the process, cell autophagy is so important that it won a Nobel prize for the Japanese scientist who explained how it works."
The presenter then told fans that she takes other supplements but they "perform different tasks."
She concluded the caption: "This one I think is particularly important for those of us that causes dysfunction as we get older."
