Germanium (Review)
Organic Germanium

An ESSENTIAL tool for health restoration and long term wellness enhancement

After having reviewed the main literature on Organic Germanium, looked in detail at the clinical results including those of lifelong Germanium researcher Dr Ashi and experienced it's results first hand, I now regard Germanium as an essential tool for all who want to achieve the best of health and wellness.
John Claydon, Founder of Regenerative Nutrition

There are many excellent looking remedies and supplements, so what is it that distinguishes Organic Germanium? In our opinion, Organic Germanium has a prime place in any significant/fundamental health recovery program. It "seizes control” of the basic mechanisms of health and disease and can lead to a successful outcome in virtually all common chronic and acute disease states.

Understanding the basis of chronic disease

The basis of chronic disease can be understood when we consider the fact that the very act of breathing and eating cause harmful byproducts to build up in the body. Fuel (food) is taken in, burnt with oxygen (metabolised), acid waste is produced, which is never fully eliminated from the body. Add to this all of the non-nutrient content, such as toxins, chemical additives etc., that are taken into one's body (orally, environmentally and transdermally) and it's little surprise that at some point the body will cease to cope with it and become "sick”.

Acid waste accumulation (in cells, tissues and bodily fluids) clog the lymphatic system, extracellular fluid and the cells. These acid wastes neutralise oxygen that should be used for proper cellular respiration and energy and an efficient immune system. Low oxygen levels reduce the energy output of the cells resulting in an impoverishment of all metabolic activity and efficiency. This process tends to become self perpetuating. Please see the article Disease: Acid Wastes, Oxygenation and Lymphatic Congestion

Low oxygen levels anywhere in the body lead to the development of disease, such as a proliferation of chronic infection such as Candida. Cancer cells will develop successfully only in a low oxygen environment.

Oxygen is the great cleanser and purifier

‘Human beings ingest food to live. What's not absorbed is discharged as excrement, but what is absorbed by the digestive system is burned in the body through a myriad of processes, and is ultimately discharged from the body as carbon dioxide and water. That is, gaseous carbon bonds with oxygen and leaves the body as carbon dioxide during exhalation, and another gas, hydrogen ions, bonds with oxygen and is discharged as water in the form of sweat or urine. Hydrogen, at this point, is a positive ion and is useless to a living body - in fact it is harmful. With the increase of this hydrogen ion, the acidity increases, pH being the measure of this acidity. This hydrogen ion acidifies the body and becomes the cause of disease, and what neutralizes the hydrogen ions is oxygen. The hydrogen bonds with oxygen and becomes water, which is discharged from the body. As the amount of hydrogen in the body increases, the need for oxygen to neutralize the hydrogen increases. When germanium is administered, it bonds with hydrogen in place of oxygen, and prevents the waste of oxygen in the body; this is how germanium helps the body's recovery and cell regeneration, playing a crucial role in maintaining the body's well being. "Germanium disappears from the body without a trace within 20-30 hours; large amounts of radical-laden germanium could be seen in the urine." Just from this we can see that side effects will not be a concern. Besides helping to discharge all kinds of harmful substances from the body in this way, germanium re-alkalinizes waste products that have already been acidified, promoting metabolism and greatly affecting the genes and bioactivity.’

Beneficial Properties of Organic Germanium

See also the list in the main article here

Organic Germanium encompasses almost all of the fundamentals of health restoration
  • Eliminates infections
  • Neutralises acid wastes
  • Helps to play its part in systemic alkalization where needed
  • Removes heavy metals including mercury
  • A major help in eliminating a variety of toxins
  • Increases cell oxygenation - a vital aspect in overcoming disease
  • Helps to normalize acid/alkaline levels
  • Balances blood sugar levels
  • Helps to balance blood pressure
As can be seen from the list above Organic Germanium is effective in many aspects of disease resolution, not just a single action. Principally, at the heart of it's efficacy, is it's dual role as an oxygenator and a superior antioxidant. Furthermore, the chelating effect makes it especially helpful for mercury, cadmium, and similar heavy metal poisoning. A surprisingly common occurrence and one of the foundations of modern disease.

Anti-oxidants: a brief definition

An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. They do this by being oxidized themselves. (Source: Wikkipedia)

We are as much electrical organisms as we are biological. Organic Germanium as a semi-conductor exchanges electrons in a way that delivers the all-encompassing health benefits detailed previously.

‘That Germanium is a semi-conductor and not a metal is a physiologically expedient phenomenon as well. This is because each cell, including blood, has semi-conductive characteristics, and since semiconductors cannot coexist due to their electrical properties, there needs to be no concern that Germanium will accumulate within the body; and the fact that it cannot accumulate in the body means that no matter how much Germanium is ingested over however long a period, there cannot be any side effects because Germanium is always discharged from the body.’
Dr Kazuhiko Asai PhD

Note: No matter how diligent we are with our diet, even following the principles of an alkalizing diet, the fact of life is that a low oxygen, acid based pathology will inevitably slip in. Yes, it helps to be careful with what food and drink we take in, but after years of following a high alkaline diet I have come to the conclusion that this is absolutely no guarantee to avoid disease. Focus should not be on an alkalizing diet, but rather a diet that is 95% or more unprocessed and unrefined foods and a good mixture of healthy fats, proteins and carbohydrates, with plenty of vegetables.

The effect of Organic Germanium on glands

The majority of people with medium to severe health issues usually have stressed or inefficient adrenal and/or thyroid glands. The adrenal glands are usually the main stumbling block to healing. Germanium can be a great help in overcoming this block and restoring adrenal gland function, but the sufferer from chronic adrenal insufficiency may diligently try all sorts of remedies, such as Organic Germanium, and fail to get well after months or even years of trying, even experiencing aggravation of their condition. Often the very important remedies, such as Organic Germanium, that could bring about a clinical improvement appear to be the worst aggravators. This can be avoided! The weaker/more frail individual and individuals with adrenal insufficiency will usually need to support their adrenal glands prior to and during the use of Organic Germanium by the use of safe doses of the bio-identical hormone hydro-cortisone, as discussed in the article Health Restoration: The Necessity to Support Adrenal Hormone Output

Related to this discussion concerning the adrenal glands, the major gland that adjusts to various types of demands, adaptations and so called stress, is the word adaptogen. Organic Germanium is an adaptogen. An adaptogen is defined as: a substance which helps to normalize body functions indirectly. An adaptogen is classified as nontoxic and having a nonspecific effect, enhancing your ability to cope with any stress (physical, emotional, or chemical) as needed. Two further xamples of adaptogens are Ginseng and Peruvian Maca. Analysis of the most effective adaptogens in the plant kingdom reveal that they have a greater germanium content than other herbs and root tonics. Adaptogenic effects are thought to be primarily focused on the adrenal glands.

"Organic Germanium has a beneficial effect on glands in general; a pathologist friend reported that all mice to which the germanium compound was administered had an increased weight of their endocrine organs, especially the adrenal and thyroid glands. They became a reddish colour. Indicating blood viscosity had decreased, thus facilitating blood flow”
Dr Kazuhiko Asai PhD
Dosage Levels

The most important thing to come out of this review is changes to dosage levels, as follows.

Adults (50-80kg)

Maintenance usage: 3 capsules per day (minimum suggested usage). This can be used for gradual health boosting, detoxification and as a long term anti-oxidant and cell oxygen enhancer and general health protector.

Intensive usage: 6 to 8 capsules per day. This can be used for significant health problems, infections, acute illness and/or as part of a regenerative program to help detoxify old acid wastes and to regenerate stagnant glands and organs.

Children/Low Weight Adults (25kg to 40kg) Use Organic Germanium at 50% level of the above recommendations

For those under 25kg or over 80kg Please contact us at with your details for personal recommendations.

Organic Germanium is best taken on an empty stomach or just before food

It is more effective to split your selected dose over 2-4 times a day, depending on how many per day you are taking. For example, if your selected dose is 8 capsules per day it is preferable to take 2 on rising and then a further 2 before each of your 3 main meals. If however you are taking a maintenance dose of 3 capsules per day, then take one before each meal.

Due to Germanium's powerful action it is generally advisable to introduce it gradually into your system over a period of two weeks or more. For example, the first week take 1 capsule per day, the next week 1 capsule twice per day and so on until your desired usage level is gained. More robust individuals can start at higher levels and increase up to their desired usage level faster. For example double the levels suggested above. Conversely, the weaker/more frail individual should start at lower levels and increase up to their desired usage level more slowly. For example half the levels suggested above (capsules can be opened and the content split in halves). If systemic changes are perceived to be too quick, then do not take Organic Germanium one day per week. This should slow down the changes. For urgent/serious health problems, such as cancer, pain is often relieved in less than an hour by taking a high dose (8 capsules for example).

Any health restoration program utilising Organic Germanium will involve an adaption period. This can include detoxification symptoms including headache, symptoms of having a cold or influenza and/or in some cases nausea etc. See the article Adapting To The Regenerative Process

‘A patient may feel a certain warmth surging throughout his body within 10 minutes of so after taking the compound - some people actually feel as if they have been given a mixture that included alcohol. yawning soon ceases, blood becomes less viscous and complexions take on a healthy glow. Carbon monoxide poisoning is quickly cured, and people feel cheerful, sleep soundly and wake in good humour. They also show evidence of increased mental powers, along with numerous other overall positive effects’
Dr Kazuhiko Asai PhD

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.
