Dolphins Decoded: Unraveling Marine Mysteries for Human Health – Episode 224

Welcome to the Gladden Longevity podcast, and in this episode, Dr. Gladden speaks with  Stephanie Venn Watson. Dr. Stephanie Venn-Watson, CEO of Seraphina Therapeutics, is a veterinary epidemiologist and public health scientist. With a background in Animal Physiology, Veterinary Medicine, and Public Health, she leads Seraphina, known for its research on pentadecanoic acid (C15:0). Fatty15, a C15:0 supplement, offers three times more cellular benefits than omega-3s, promoting long-term health. Users report improved metabolism, reduced anxiety, and better sleep within six weeks. This podcast emphasizes the critical role of C15:0, an essential fatty acid, in maintaining physiological health. She highlights a concerning population-wide crisis of C15:0 deficiency resulting from reduced-fat diets and the preference for plant-based milk alternatives devoid of C15:0. This deficiency, developed over 40 years, contributes to chronic diseases. C15:0, targeting key aging hallmarks, proves beneficial for metabolic, heart, liver, and immune health, as well as mood regulation and improved sleep.
