Organic Germanium (Ge-132) is a trace mineral found in the earth's crust. It has been studied extensively in Japan, where Dr Kuzihiko Asai discovered that certain medicinal plants and beneficial herbs, spices and mushrooms that have renowned systemic health benefits show a relatively larger amount of germanium that most other herbs and foods etc.
This supports his thesis and observation over many years that organic germanium has a primary ability to normalise all kinds of health problems be they minor or serious.
By isolating and discovering how to synthesise organic germanium he established a brilliant nutritional product capable of tremendous health support and improvement.
His studies indicate doses of 100-300mg daily are useful in the treatment of many diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, food allergies, Candida albicans, chronic viral infections and cancer. However in his practice and recommendations he suggests that some people need higher dosage for maximum help with serious or chronic health conditions (i.e. up to 1,500 mgs daily). Organic germanium is also often used for pain control. Dr Asai writes at length about this in his book "Miracle Cure: Organic Germanium"

Germanium binds to oxygen to improve cellular respiration. It has both anti-viral and anti-fungal actions. Most importantly it increases the natural production of interferon which leads to the mass production of antibody-generating cells. It is believed that germanium acts predominantly by stimulating the body's own natural defences.
It is a 100% safe product and is not retained in the body. 48 hours after its absorption it will be out of the body.
No one can predict how effective organic germanium might be for you or for anyone else. We do know that it's safe. The evidence validating its benefits has been increasing daily. Germanium's remarkable effects on the immune system have been documented in medical journals. It has also been selected as one of six substances to be studied in the treatment of AIDS, chosen at the International AIDS Treatment Conference held in Tokyo, Japan.
In true adaptogenic style, organic germanium appears to work to alleviate minor or major health imbalances, or to keep you free of problems. So it appears to be both therapeutic and preventive.
Germanium is as old as the earth's crust, but its application is in tune with our new and increasing understanding of energy medicine.
We have another short and interesting book about organic germanium available for download on our website. "Germanium: A New Approach to Immunity - by Betty Kamen, ph.D". We recommend this small download to everyone interested in energy medicine and therapeutic and preventive supplementation. Again, see the "further reading" tab on the article page here.
Because we offer organic germanium at one of the best prices in the world, we are often asked if this means it is of a lesser quality, or in some way different to other products that can cost more than ten times as much; the answer is an emphatic NO. We supply organic germanium Ge132 made to Dr. Asai's exact specification. We have a certificate of analysis which shows purity, and we would never accept less than 99.9%. Many unscrupulous marketers claim that other brands are the "wrong type" or lesser quality, even going so far as to say they are dangerous. This is simply untrue. These scare tactics are bad for the truth and bad for the supplement industry as a whole. There is only one type of Ge132 organic germanium and if it was the wrong type it would not be Ge-132.
