Erin Sharoni: Co-Founder, Juvicell

Nutritional supplementation is one of the most frequently raised topics in relation to longevity and healthy living.  But do we really need additional components in our diet, such as pterostilbene , sulforaphane and resveratrol?  Scientifically validated studies suggest some dietary supplements are beneficial to our health, but how do we decide which ones to take?  There are myriad considerations. To explore the subject, the LLAMA podcast is teaming up with JUVICELL, a nutraceutical product developed by US and German scientists. In this conversation with Peter Bowes, co-founder, Erin Sharoni, discusses the scientific, ethical and societal issues involved in developing a product that aims to extend healthspan.
