They know what’s going on in Japan and in Russia – they use organic germanium in alternative cancer therapies because germanium has the ability to modify the body’s biological response to tumors.
Organic germanium can alleviate many health concerns, such as memory loss, and it slows the aging process because it is a powerful anti-oxidant.
You can eat germanium in many foods, like mushrooms.
It’s also found in fossilized plants, in many various foods, in mineral water, and in healing plants and herbs. Like all healthy food nutrients, the content of germanium in plants depends on the soil where the plants are grown.
How Germanium Works
Organic germanium stimulates electrical impulses on a cellular level, so this plays an important role as an oxygen catalyst within your body. We all know that increasing the flow of oxygen in your body is very healthy and helps prevent disease.
Germanium is a trace element similar to silicon. It is found in your tissues, and has been shown in animal studies to have significant anticarcinogenic, antitumorigenic, and immuno-potential effects. Organic germanium compounds carboxyethyl Ge sesquioxide and lactate/citrate salts of Ge have been used as anti-viral agents and immunostimulants.
How healthy is this? And you can get this from food sources.
Germanium In Foods
Low concentrations of germanium are found in many foods, and the average human intake is between 1-3 mg per day. Here is a list of foods that contain relatively high concentrations of germanium:
- shiitake, chaga and oyster mushrooms
- aloe vera
- chlorella algae
- pearl barley
Clinical research confirms both the safety and the efficacy of organic germanium. The research shows that organic germanium:
- stimulates the immune system and activates your body’s own defense mechanisms
- normalizes many physiological imbalances including blood pressure and serum cholesterol
- fights free radicals
- helps detoxify the body
- chelates heavy metals
- protects against radiation
- rejuvenates blood vessels
- improves blood circulation
- improves vision
- relieves chronic pain and inflammation
- increases the flow of oxygen in the body
- improves skin conditions if applied topically as an ointment
Warning – Go Organic
Organic germanium is what you want to buy because too much non-organic germanium can cause damage to the kidneys. So, be cautious when supplementing with germanium sourced to manufactured forms.
Man-made forms of germanium are used in the manufacturing of transistors, diodes, and fluorescent lamps. Germanium is found in some dental alloys, too. If you have been exposed to these sources of germanium, it is a good idea to check your body’s germanium levels using the hair analysis.
In 1967, Japanese researcher, Dr. Asai synthesized a new germanium compound he named “organic germanium” or germanium-132 (bis-carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide). Although this replicated form of germanium is labelled as organic, I recommend taking it for a limited amount of time, and remember to periodically check your germanium levels.
If your germanium levels are low, a laboratory supplement will help restore depleted nutrient levels for a limited time, but keeping your germanium levels balanced using foods is definitely a healthy step to take.
