Leslie Kenny’s life was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis in her 30s. When her doctors told her lupus had a life expectancy of 5 years and that rheumatoid arthritis could only be managed, not cured, she set out to optimize her health as best she could using safe, natural solutions.
She began helping life sciences academics at European universities including Oxford, where she lives, to raise money for their discoveries. It was at a meeting with one such scientist that she learned about a natural compound called spermidine, rich in a traditional Japanese dish she had grown up with, natto. Spermidine was showing great promise supporting health as we age.
Leslie immediately wanted her octogenarian mother back home in California to take it. Unfortunately, spermidine wasn’t available in the US or really even known there. Spotting this unmet need, she decided to bring it to the US herself. Today, at age 57, Leslie is living proof that we can get better with age, so long as we take responsibility for our health and meet our doctors halfway.
