is a nutrient, the exact improvements are not predictable for
any one person. It works at a cellular level and therefore the
action is general rather than specific. The changes arising
from Gerovital (GH3) with Procaine Hcl, are usually subtle.
Individuals used to the dramatic effects of synthetic drugs
may not notice the any difference day to day. In assessing the
benefits, experience shows that it is preferable to look back
over several months. Changes in physical and mental status then
can be evaluated.
CAN GH3 INCREASE SEXUAL POTENCY?
believe that decreased levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin lead
to impotence.Serotonin is a substrate of MAO. Ideally, MAO metabolises
the serotonin so it will not become too prominent. Rising levels of
MAO, which may appear after age 45 thus, accompany falling levels of
serotonin. GH3 has a demonstrated ability to inhibit excess MAO. Thus
it may tend to normalise serotonin levels and restore potency. Estrogen
and androgen production can be a factor in sexual characteristics and
performance as well. Parhon, Aslan and Danila and Untea conducted studies
in this area. They concluded that GH3 with procaine hydrochloride tends
to increase deficient estrogen and androgen levels. It appears that
this simulative effect only occurs where these factors are subnormal.
GH3 AFFECT HERPES?
there is noting that will eliminate herpes. However a relevant research
study was conducted by J. Earle Officer of the University of Southern
California. He showed that herpes I and herpes II viruses did not become
active in the presence of GH3
GH3 REDUCE CANCER RISK?
no definitive answer to this question. Studies by J Earl Officer also
showed that the C-type (cancer producing) viruses did not become active
during GH3 experiments. Dr Aslan reported a statistical decrease in
the appearance of neoplasms in patient populations using Procaine hydrochloride
GH3 PREVENT HEART ATTACK OR STROKE?
remains inconclusive. Studies by Cohen and Ditman and by Aslan indicated
a lowering of cholesterol levels in patients using GH3 The tendency
for the product to normalise arterial pressure and heart rate also may
play a role in preventing damage to the circulatory system. At the National
Congress of Professors in Italy, 1974 , the assembled scientists praised
GH3`s effectiveness against the accumulation of blood clots and cholesterol.
They also agreed that it does not pose any health risks. Soon after
beginning to take GH3 some people show an increase in cholesterol. Importantly,
this level is measured in the blood. A temporary rise may indicate a
mobilisation of the arterial deposits.
GH3 WITH PROCAINE HAVE ANY EFFECT ON ALLERGIES?
immune system responds defensively to the presence of various substances
from the environment. However, it may become sensitised to one of these
antigens and over react. The normal protective response can get out
of hand. The chemical consequences of this natural function gone awry
may become an even larger problem. Histamine output increases and this
may create many of the classic symptoms of an allergic reaction. Additionally,
stress may leave the body open to an allergic reaction when the adrenal
glands must respond more often. This can lead to a depletion of vital
chemical defences. GH3 may moderate these problems in several ways:
(1) Researchers Ghali, Cohen and Aslan assert that GH3 is an anti-histamic
(44) (2) Bucci has demonstrated that it moderates the adrenal response.
(3) Acetylcholine is a counterpart of adrenaline. Since DEAE is a precursor
to acetylcholine , it may promote a parasympathetic response during
times of stress.
DOES GH3 MAKE HAIR REGROW AND RECOLOUR?
is certainly ample scientific evidence that GH3 may help recolor and
Once again, the pharmacological action is not
clearly understood. It is known that endocrine imbalances reduced circulation
can lead to the weakening and thinning of hair. Poor nutrition or nutrition
inadequately communicated to the scalp may result in poor hair quality.
As already documented, GH3 reportedly helps restore endocrine balance.
Gerovital improves circulation to all parts of the body through vasodilatation.
PABA also is believed effective in improving hair quality. The ionised
and stabilised nature of GH3 may allow the PABA to perform even more
effectively. The regrowing and recoloring of hair does not occur at
all in some people. Even when it does, several years may pass before
appreciable results are obtained. Nutrient or endocrine deficiencies
may not be the cause in some instances of poor hair quality or hair
loss. In these cases GH3 may not help.

GH3 FORTIFY THE BODY AGAINST COMMON ILLNESS?
and her associates noted that 38% of subjects using GH3 showed a reduction
in absenteeism from work. A two year study by Untea and Bercu revealed
that 76% of labourers doing piece work increased their incomes during
the study if they were on Gerovital GH3 with procaine HCl. These same
workers experienced better concentration on the job and an absence of
fatigue. As mentioned earlier, a serious influenza epidemic swept through
Europe during one of the Romanian studies. Dr. Aslan reported a mortality
rate of 3.2% in patients on GH3 In the untreated group, the mortality
rate was 13.9%. An American report noted similar results 3.3% mortality
was found among GH3 users, while the untreated group showed a 12.0%
IS THE ROLE OF MAO IN DEPRESSION? CAN GH3 CORRECT IT?
serotonin and noreprinephrine apparently are needed for proper neural
responses. Most researchers believe that deficient levels result in
depressive syndromes. This soon leads to fatigue pessimism, withdrawal
and inadequate functioning. MAO is believed to metabolise these neurotransmitters
so they will not become too prominent. If they were, it might result
in excess neural firing and "manic" behaviour. Conversely, if MAO builds
up to a higher level, there may be a deficit of neurotransmitters as
the MAO does its job too well. GH3`s reported capacity to balance MAO
action may reduce the problem. In contrast to many MAO inhibitors (where
a tyramine-restricted diet is needed) GH3 acts as a reversible inhibitor
of MAO. It isolates the MAO from the neurotransmitters and thus prevents
there over metabolisation. Under stress or in the presence of tyramine,
the procaine reverses this action so the MAO can perform its other necessary
DOES OSTEOPOROSIS RESPOND TO GH3?
is primarily caused by a breakdown of bone structure and a loss of calcified
tissue. It generally advances with age and therefore usually is identified
with geriatric patients. However NASA physicians reported that space
travellers in the weightless condition showed an alarming advance of
osteoporosis. GH3 treated patients have shown a significant reduction
in osteoporosis. Results have been reported both in preventing and reversing
it Gerovital GH3 apparently encourages the body to retain calcium. Further,
researchers report that over a period of several years remineralization
of the whole skeleton can occur. A general thickening of the bones has
been noted in patients treated with GH3 as well. GH3 may improve osteoporosis
by its stimulation of the estrogens and androgens as previously documented.
These two hormones currently are used as treatments for the condition.
CAN Gerovital H3 (GH3) DO ANYTHING FOR SICKLE-CELL ANAEMIA?
in one laboratory study showed that, when exposed to procaine, sickled
cells would re-oxygenate. They concluded that procaine in GH3 competes
with calcium for membrane binding sites. Calcium is believed largely
responsible for the brittle form of haemoglobin. This was a laboratory
study only. However, the investigators took the position that procaine
held promise for controlling sickle-cell deformity.
WHAT EFFECT DOES GH3 HAVE ON BLOOD SUGAR ABNORMALITIES?
no extensive data on the subject. One study showed easier management
of blood sugar level in diabetics using GH3 as an adjunct to insulin.
It also suggested that blood sugar levels tended to become normal in
cases where the values were aberrated slightly.
WILL GH3 HELP REDUCE STRESS?
anti-adrenergic properties and functions as a muscle relaxant. Both
these factors may provide greater resistance to stress. As already explained,
DEAE participates in the production of acetylcholine, the counterpart
of adrenaline. GH3 facilitates both the elimination of toxins and the
inhibition of excess MAO. Researchers consider these factors aspects
of stress reduction as well.
DOES GH3 HELP MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENTS?
a West German surgeon, conducted a clinical trial with 87 multiple sclerosis
patients. The Gerovital
injections and ampoules and tabltes treated subjects, showed "remarkable improvement"
No extensive clinical investigation has been undertaken in this area.
WHAT WILL GH3 DO FOR BODY WEIGHT?
GH3 may act as a balancing factor. Clearly patients in a state of degeneration
may fail to maintain a minimum safe body weight. Some geriatric patients,
for example gradually "waste" away as they lose lean tissue. Studies
demonstrate that the anabolic properties of GH3 can promote weight gain.
At the same time, a slow metabolic rate can result in the failure to
catabolize undesired body fat. Clinical inquiry suggests that Gerovital
H3 increases a deficient basal metabolic rate.
HOW DOES GH3 AFFECT THE SKIN?
research indicates that GH3 may contribute to the disappearance of age
spots and wrinkles. GH3 may improve skin elasticity and promote faster
healing. These changes may result largely from improved circulation
to the skin surface. Many users of GH3 are reported to have that "youthful"
appearance which belies their chronological age. These observations
are not necessarily far-fetched. We can assume that first impressions
of ageing arise primarily from the appearance of the hair and skin.
Both these surface measures of age seem positively affected by GH3.
Scientific reports as a whole suggests that the Gerovital (GH3) may
prolong and to some extent restore the skin quality.
WILL GH3 EXTEND LIFE?
most significant studies on increased life span were conducted by Professor
Berger in France and by Richard Hochschild of Corona del Mar, California.
They undertook independent studies. Their results demonstrated that
male animals lived 30% longer than the controls. Interestingly, extension
of lifespan in the females was much less. Dr. Aslan`s longitudinal studies
showed a reduction in mortality rate in humans as well. It is important
to remember that the human form has a limited lifespan potential. Only
so many generations of body cells can be reproduced. The human
system is designed to survive approximately 120 years.
the cells rapidly lose their reproductive capacity. To whatever extent
someone lives less than this may be the result of stress, accidents
or poor overall health management. Dr. Aslan did not claim that GH3
makes possible the extension of life beyond this limit, she rather believed
that it may be possible for people to "die young" but at an advanced
age. The goal is to reach an extended age without the degenerative problems,
which too often detract from the quality of life.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO OVERDOSE ON GH3?
Wagner of Columbia University conducted studies on Gero vital H3 (GH3).
He gave subjects more than 60 times the normal equivalent dosage of
GH3 for more than four months. He determined that there is no build
up of procaine in the cells. In this sense, the procaine acts no differently
than other water soluble B-vitamins. Dr. Wagner and most other investigations
agree that GH3 acts on sites in the body in a benign fashion. It dose
not damage tissues or alter the basic structure of the organism.
DOES GH3 CURE HEALTH PROBLEMS?
cure is improper because we are discussing a nutrient. Dr. Aslan points
out that the real value of GH3 is that it can be used nutritionally
to reinforce specific medical treatments of health programs. Gerovital
also may provide a measure of protection against health problems which
otherwise would develop.
IS GH3 HABIT FORMING?
report strong attachments to Gerovital H3 (GH3) health benefits. However,
they cannot become physically dependent on it. Pharmacological investigation
by Goodman and Gilman concludes procaine HCl in GH3 is incapable of
WHY ARE SULFONAMIDES AND NIACIN CONTRAINDICATED FOR GH3?
drugs and straight niacin (not niacin as part of a multi-vitamin) can
neutralise the effects of the procaine. However GH3 does not interact
with them in a harmful manner. PABA is antagonistic to sulphonamides
and therefore will cause a mutual decrease in effectiveness. Niacin
dilates the blood vessels to such an extent that procaine is forced
quickly out of the system.
CAN GH3 PROMOTE DETOXIFICATION?
toxins, which accumulate in the body from food and water, may be purged
on GH3 This detoxification resembles that experienced on a sudden change
of nutritional intake, fasting or a vitamin program. Such a "healing
crisis" usually features headache, mild nausea or flu like symptoms.
Somewhat less that 20% of GH3 users experience these reactions.
WHY IS A RESTING PERIOD RECOMMENDED EACH MONTH?
resting period, where no GH3 is taken, is recommended for GH3 Taking
any vitamins without a break may eventuate in decreased responsiveness
on the part of the body. Stopping Gerovital for a few days each month
allows the cells time to recover their sensitivity.
WHY HAS THE ISSUE OF GH3 BEEN OBSCURED?
touched upon previously GH3 probably has not been obscured as much as
neglected. An allopathically oriented medical establishment logically
would suppress an inexpensive vitamin, which appears to improve a large
range of physical ills. However, the facts do not substantiate this
assumption. Actually, many physicians support GH3 and make it available
to their patients. They believe that GH3 may do some good, while it
can`t do any harm.
of investigations on GH3 generally do not appear in the major medical
journals in America. On the contrary, reports suggesting low efficacy
have received more press. Importantly, 85% of research on GH3 backs
up DR Aslan`s original claims. 100% of studies using the true formulation
resulted in conclusions parallel to those of Dr. Aslan's Gerovital.
of the art in medicine, as in many fields, develops through the flow
of information in trade journals. If a certain advance does not appear,
then the practitioners of the field cannot use it. In the medical field,
failure to practice the state of the art may result in lawsuits and
the lifting of one`s licence. In similar fashion, a licenced person
who does not represent the state of the art stands above reproach.
distressing factor is the emphasis on patentable products. Pharmaceutical
representatives encourage the physician to be "up-to-date". These primary
sources of information lean toward profitable patent drugs. Expensive
studies are a bad investment if a product such as GH3 is not patenable.
Lacking approval as a drug leaves Gerovital with less glamour in the
medical mind. It is then only what it is - a simple nutrient.
GEROVITAL H3 (GH3) has been established as possibly the most
exciting remedial discovery for mankind, since the principles
of hygiene were reluctantly accepted by the medical profession
in the 19th century.
Doctor says about GH3 - "I am a consultant in the National Health
Service, currently practising in Hampshire. I have recommended Gerovital
H3 (GH3) to various adult patients, colleagues and friends, as well
as taking product self. Ignoring the wealth of research material available,
I myself have observed what I believe to be major improvements in arthritic
and other physically degenerative problems, and possibly even more significantly,
in depressive syndromes. I am aware that Gerovital - H3 (GH3) is a MAO
( mono-amino oxidase ) inhibitor, and as such gradually allows the body
to produce some MAO after a period, unlike all other MAO blockers used
in treating depression which have inherent side-effects, My own observations
lead me to believe that Gerovital H3 (GH3) has no side-effects. I have
no hesitation in recommending this product to the public generally!"
(Dr. J. MB., Ch.B Hampshire)
year old lady says - "I have been taking Gerovital - H3 for the
past 18 months and can only describe them as marvellous. How at the
age of 85 my hair is beginning to thicken up and regain its fair colouring.
My hairdresser remarked 6 months ago that if she didn't think it was
impossible, she would say my hair had changed texture & become stronger
- so it had. I am feeling 20 years than my actual age and am able to
enjoy life in its entirety. This I put down to the benefits I derive
from the tablets. I hope to be able to continue with them all my life.

US company president says about GH3
- "When first introduced to the product called Gerovital - H3 (GH3)
, I was very sceptical as I have used other products before, and all
have failed. After a person gets "burned" a few times, one just gives
up. In meeting with you and your staff, my sixth sense was activated
by the strength of your confidence in the product , and purchased a
3 month trial of GH3 to test on my mother who has a severe case of Arthritis
in her hands, and for myself for undue stress placed upon me as President
of a corporation.
less than a week, when my mother informed me that not only has the pain
left her hands, but she can now thread a needle and knot it. My mother
is 84 and she has not threaded or knotted a needle for the past 8 years.
She has stopped taking Tynol, Ben Gay and Heat, as she does not need
them any longer. She also say's that she can even walk better, and I
have been a witness to all improvements. Also the ringing in her ears
have also reduced with GH3.
have been astronomical, as I am more cool headed, my memory has improved,
and I feel better, quite better than ever before. The best is, I have
had an ear infection for the past 6 months, and have seen 3 different
physicians. Wearing an hearing aid was said to have caused some of the
problems. I have been on numerous drugs, prescribed by each physicians,
and have spent well in excess of $500 for office visits and drugs, and
the problem remained since last week. Each can be verified by receipts
and empty drug bottles.
H3 (GH3) arrived in December, I took 2 pills a day for about 2 weeks
and felt improvements, but had to stop as new drugs were issued to me
by my physician. My ear was draining constantly. I carried cotton swabs
with me in my suit coat so as to wipe the liquids that drained from
the ear. Attending meeting, talking on the telephone and persuing my
selling career was a great hardship on me, as the liquids draining would
wipe out the sounds of the person I was talking to. Two weeks ago, after
leaving the doctors office with a new prescription, I decided to put
Gerovital H3 (GH3) to work, as I have tried everything else and with
no profound results.
two GH3 tablets instead of one each time. The second day, my ear has
stopped draining and the fullness around the ear lobe has left. The
sounds of peoples voices are no longer muffled, and I can speak on the
phone quite easily. I carry no more cotton swabs. I can't believe it,
yet I am a walking specimen of what Gerovital H3 (GH3) has done for
me. I am more than happy with the results of GH3 and each day, I find
new improvements taking place." (G.M. Kansas City, USA)
girl with MS says - "I feel I must write to an tell you how my life
has changed since taking Gerovital H3 (GH3). I was struck down by Multiple
Sclerosis at the age of 18 six years ago. My body was deteriorating
month by month, my brain would not function properly, my legs often
collapsed underneath me and when I opened my mouth to speak it didn't
make sense. I was a really nasty person to live with. I started taking
GH3 on the 9th of February and within two weeks began to feel better.
With GH3 my thinking became clearer, my legs have not given way since
then and I am ahead of my studies. I go to parties and my Mother tells
me I am an angel to live with, in fact it's like being reborn. Thank
you for bringing me back to live a normal life." ( Anna W. Hammersmith
of 14 year old with low blood sugar says - "Our 14 year old daughter
is using Gerovital - H3 (GH3) with wonderful results. She got sick last
fall, lost weight, didn't have any appetite and felt weak. Till Christmas
the Doctor told us she should quit school. All they could find wrong
was (low blood sugar). We tried everything we knew, vitamins, tonics,
chiropractor treatments and just everything we could think of, Still
she made very little improvement , she looked very sick and pale. In
March we discovered Gerovital - H3 (GH3) so we started her on that,
she made a big improvement in just a few days and is improving since.
Her appetite got better and she is gaining weight. In just 6 weeks her
low blood sugar was back to normal. After using GH3 for 2 months she
is doing any kind of hard work. Thanks to Dr. Aslan GH3."
