Gerovital H-3, also known as GH3, is the first drug of modern times to suggest reversal of the aging process. The impetus for the development of the drug came from Nicolae Ceausescu, the last communist leader in Romania, on his quest for immortality. He funded a research establishment in the 1950’s, headed by founding figure of gerontology and geriatrics in Romania, Dr. Ana Aslan, who is credited with developing the miracle drug. This fountain of youth has been sought out by well-known actresses and politicians worldwide, including U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Since the discovery of Gerovital H-3 by celebrities, GH3 itself has become famous and is used in over 20 countries around the world.
How it works
The main ingredient of GH3 is Procaine, commonly known as Novacaine in the United States. Procaine, the local anesthetic of choice worldwide, is made by combining two B vitamins, PABA (Para Amino Benzoic Acid) and DEAE (DiEthyl Amino Ethanol). When used for aging reversal, Procaine is combined with buffers which transport it to the body and preserve it, since the body quickly metabolizes Procaine alone. Many people take supplemental doses of PABA by itself to relieve symptoms of its deficiency. PABA deficiency symptoms include hair loss and greying and wrinkling of the skin. These symptoms are often halted or reversed by Gerovital H-3. While GH3 is available in pill form, Gerovital H3 injections are often given, especially when immediate results are beneficial to the patient’s particular condition. Gerovital side effects reported are said to be minimal, but include heartburn and migranes. Although the pharmacologic action of GH3 is not completely understood, 50 years of clinical studies worldwide have shown that Gerovital does the following:
- Increases the desire to live.
- Enhances physical and intellectual capabilities.
- Promotes better skin, hair and fingernails.
- Improves joint mobility and muscle strength
GH3 and the United States
Although GH3 has been hailed as a revolutionary medicine, it is not approved by the United States FDA, citing claims against the effectiveness of the drug. The FDA has repeatedly tried to gain control over GH3 to no avail, partially because the active ingredient Procaine has been used since 1905, much longer than the FDA has been in existence. Also, the FDA has no jurisdiction over vitamins. The Dietary Supplement Act of 1994 determined the FDA has no jurisdiction over GH3, classifying it as a nutritional supplement. With its attribution to improving peoples lives worldwide, one has to wonder why Gerovital has not been accepted by the U.S. medical establishment. Chicago Medical School Institute for Medical Research conducted a study in 1965 that concluded Aslan’s formulation was as effective as it claimed. This in-depth scientific study was completely ignored. Some conclusions come to mind when evaluating the billions of dollars made every year by the medical establishment and the impact a cure for aging and disease might have on the big business of curative medicine. A society minus the fear of old age and disease is reality now, with the advancement of medical technology. How long will the people of the United States sit quietly as their bodies become frail and wrinkled, while others around the world are embracing a fountain of youth?
