How does Gerovital affects the skin?
Medical research indicates that gerovital may contribute to the disappearance of age spots and wrinkles. It may contribute to the disappearance of age spots and wrinkles. It may improve skin elasticity and promote faster healing. These changes may result largely from improved circulation to the skin surface. Many users of gerovital 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 gerovital Scientific reports as a whole suggests that the product may prolong and to some extent restore the skin quality.
Will Gerovital extend life?
The 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. After that, 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 gerovital 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 Gerovital H3?
DR Bernard Wagner of Columbia University conducted studies on this subject. He gave subjects more than 60 times the normal equivalent dosage of gerovital 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 gerovital acts on sites in the body in a benign fashion. It dose not damage tissues or alter the basic structure of the organism.
Does Gerovital cure health problems?
The word cure is improper because we are discussing a nutrient. DR Aslan points out that the real value of gerovital is that it can be used nutritionally to reinforce specific medical treatments of health programs. It also may provide a measure of protection against health problems which otherwise would develop.
Is Gerovital habit forming?
Some users report strong attachments to its health benefits. However, they cannot become physically dependent on it. Pharmacological investigation by Goodman and Gilman concludes procaine is incapable of causing addiction.
Why are sulfonamides and niacin contraindicated for Gerovital?
Both sulpha drugs and straight niacin (not niacin as part of a multi-vitamin) can neutralise the effects of the procaine. However gerovital 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 Gerovital promote detoxification?
The mild toxins, which accumulate in the body from food and water, may be purged on gerovital 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 gerovital users experience these reactions.
Why is a resting period recommended each month?
A brief resting period, where no gerovital is taken, is recommended for gerovital Taking any vitamins without a break may eventuate in decreased responsiveness on the part of the body. Stopping for a few days each month allows the cells time to recover their sensitivity.
Why has the issue of Gerovital H3 been obscured?
As briefly touched upon previously gerovital 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 gerovital and make it available to their patients. They believe that it may do some good, while it can`t do any harm.
The thousands of investigations on gerovital 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 gerovital backs up DR Aslan`s original claims. 100% of studies using the true formulation resulted in conclusions parallel to those of Dr. Aslan.
The state 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.
Another 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 gerovital 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.
