What is Germanium?

Germanium - feel more energetic

Germanium is a rare element.  It is hard with a grayish-white appearance and structurally is similar to diamond. Generally speaking, there are two types of Germanium: inorganic forms, which are used in manufacturing processes and of which many can be harmful to humans, and organic forms, which may have health benefits.

Our understanding of the role of germanium in the body, is very much in its infancy at present.  Despite initial research in the 1940’s reporting positive health results, very few trials have been conducted to date.  Research to date has suggested Germanium may aid in the prevention of cancer and AIDS as well as being toxic to certain bacteria. It is thought that Germanium does not directly kill cancerous cells, but rather stimulates the body’s immune system and causes the body to change its response to tumours.

A summary of Phase I and Phase II human clinical trials revealed that orally administered organic germanium induced interferon production, restored previously impaired immune response, and showed extremely low toxicity.

It has also been suggested that Germanium may boost the body’s oxygen supply, make a person feel more energetic, destroy damaging free radicals and protect against radiation.

The estimated daily intake for Germanium is 1 mg and a deficiency can be identified with a simple pathology test.

At Border Compounding Pharmacy we are able to order a pathology test to have your Germanium levels tested and include it in your own customised multimineral supplement based on the results. Simply contact our professional staff.
