I just saw an advertisement for Australia on Facebook and it was introducing some popular Australian dishes with colorful pictures. One of the dishes was avocado toast. As soon as I saw the photo, which was very eye-catching, I pictured myself sitting at a cafe in Australia and having it. Then, out of the blue, I felt it would go very well with natto.
In the last post, I shared with you that fermented foods such as natto, miso, soy sauce, and cheese, as well as mushrooms such as shiitake contain a polyamine called spermidine, which activates autophagy, according to Dr. Tamotsu Yoshimori, who was a co-researcher of Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, the 2016 Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine by discovering and elucidating the mechanism of autophagy.
So, spermidine is one of the keys. Are there any other foods that can activate autophagy?
