Gerovital-H3®Orignial Romanian Gerovital Cosmetics direct to you, anti aging treatment for dry or mature skin. Full line of products.
Gerovital is an anti-depressant with a cortisol-inhibiting effect that provides a whole host of revitalising properties
This famous and original anti-aging drug, discovered by Dr, Ana Aslan, consists of primarily procaine (the familiar dental anaesthetic) stabilized with small amounts of benzoic acid, potassium metabisulfate and disodium phosphate.
The active ingredient, procaine hydrochloride, breaks down in the bloodstream into two bionutrients that naturally occur in the body but become deficient as we age; para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA) and diethylaminoethanol (DEAE).
PABA favorably affects glands, hair, intestines, blood cell formation, protein metabolism and all function of the skin. PABA also stimulates manufacture of other essential vitamins, such as B1, K, folic acid and pantothenic acid. DEAE is a building block of two body substances important to the central nervous system; choline and are acetylcholine. Both are parts of the bodys stress reaction system and are important in memory functions. DEAE has been proven to produce mental stimulation, mild euphoria and has a positive effect on mood states.
Gerovital-H3 improves cell metabolism and has an effect on many mental and physical afflictions usually associated with aging: arthritis, migraine, abnormal blood pressure, peptic ulcers, acne, Parkinsons Disease, Hodgkinsons Disease, atherosclerosis, sickle cell anaemia, hypoglycaemia, senility, poor hearing, poor eyesight, failing memory, muscle fatigue, bad circulation, heart disease, angina, pectoris, impotence, varicose veins, greying hair, wrinkles, oedema and excessive cholesterol.
Gerovital can also help to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is an unusual hormone in that it increases with age. It is believed that high-cortisol levels lead to accelerated aging because cortisol attacks the hypothalamus (the area of the brain that controls the endocrine system). Ironically, cortisol may run out of control due to its ability to damage the hypothalamus that controls the adrenal glands that produce cortisol! Thus this vicious circle leads to an impaired endocrine system.
Gerovital-H3 is also a reversible inhibitor of the brain enzyme MAO, a substance that increases with age and breaks down neurotransmitters, having a detrimental affect on brain function. This is what accounts for Gerovital-H3 s anti-depressant affect.
Clinical trials have shown Gerovital to improve recall, increased psychomotor activity and muscle strength in the elderly. Another study discovered that patients had a better memory for numbers, felt more alert and had superb concentration and hand-eye coordination.
Other benefits of Gerovital reported in journals over the years include stabilizing brain cell membranes in ways that reverse ‘normal’ age related membrane deterioration; increasing general intracellular metabolic rate, especially in muscle cells; and increasing intra cellular DNA levels necessary for optimal regeneration and repair of age induced cellular wear and tear.
How such a relatively simple, procaine-based, product can lead to such a broad and seemingly unrelated host of benefits for body and mind, comes down to one simple fact. It is through Gerovital’s antagonism of the broad spectrum degenerative effects of stress-induced chronic cortisol excess, so common in the modern world, that Gerovital can claim to be, not just the original, but one of the most important anti-aging drugs.
