what do spermine and spermidine do?

  Early on in the study of semen, hints of spermine’s function bubbled up from varying lines of inquiry. A Russian researcher by the name of Poehl isolated spermine and suggested that its structure could lead to physiologically rejuvenating effects. Specifically, he postulated that spermine would increase alkalinity in the blood, and therefore increase the blood’s carrying capacity as a ’dynamogenic’ for enhancing human physiological abilities. He was wrong, but spermine did turn out to have some very stimulating functions.
