Is Aging Reversal Possible With GH3? (part III)

Gerovital - enzymatic and bio-catayctic actions:
effect on the body's nervous system has a direct effect on the enzymes
in the body. Many noted scientists feel that the degeneration of enzymes
is part of the aging process. Dr. Albert White of the Albert Einstein
College of Medicine wrote a paper on the aging process in the Journal
of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He stated
this opinion on enzymes:
gamut of enzyme chemistry seems to be involved. A gradual shift of rate
and directions seems to occur in the huge complex of enzyme regulation
of the internal steady state in the cells, tissues, and the organism
as a whole. This alteration in enzyme activity may be the real beginning
authority on enzymes and the nervous system, Dr. Ivan P. Pavlov, felt
that aging was caused by damage to the nervous system, particularly
the cerebral cortex. Dr. Pavlov has shown that should it be possible
to influence the nervous system, a change of metabolism and enzymatic
processes may be achieved.
GH3 therapy acting on the nervous system contributes to healthful action
of the cells to produce proper enzyme action, which in turn is regulated
by the nervous system. No claim has ever been made by Prof. Aslan in
any of her published papers that she has made a new drug discovery.
However, by using GH3 over an extended period of time and in certain
prescribed doses, perhaps she has found new uses for the drug's ability
to retard the aging process.
formula for procaine HCL is C13H2002N2HCL. Its generic or chemical name
is para-aminobenzoic diethylaminoethanol hydrochloride or procaine HCL.
It is composed of small colorless crystals soluble in water.
have long known that the human liver produces a specific enzyme called
procainesterase, which breaks down the para-aminobenzoic diethylaminoethanol
releasing para-aminobenzoic acid to the body. This may well be a clue
to the possible important role played by GH3 in basic biochemical processes.
HCL is one of the few substances that completely alters its chemical
composition when administered. It will be recalled that procaine is
rapidly hydrolyzed in the body with the formation of p-aminobenzoic
acid and diethylaminoethanol.
acid (PABA) has strong biocatalytic action. It was first regarded as
a vitamin-like substance because of its biocatalytic action on such
living organisms as yeast. It will, as well as procaine, inhibit sulfanilamide
activity. It is not necessarily contraindicated if cognizance is taken
of this effect. PABA has been used successfully in treating rheumatism,
arthritis, and senile changes of the skin and hair. Procaine HCL's aggregate
of actions is that it can exert simultaneously: analgesic, sympatholytic
and vasodilating; secondarily, parasympathetic and anti contracting.
GH3 - the present treatment methods:
It is entirely
feasible that men of science may successfully construct the component
part of Gerovital H3 in a tablet. Biochemists call p-aminobenzoic acid
vitamin H-1. The far reaching and well known biochemical action and
effects of both p-aminobenzoic acid and diethylaminoethanol have been
used in oral form.
the diseases and ailments that accompany the aging process, quick results
cannot be expected. Procaine is a slow acting drug; it is not until
the third or fourth month that beneficial effects begin to appear. There
are three treatment methods. Gerovital H3 can be taken into the human
body orally, in tablet form. Some of the methods have greater absorption
than others. Intramuscular injections were received by a large majority
of the Parhon Institute patients. However, it is the slower of the methods,
taking a much longer time to achieve the desired results. The intravenous
or intra-arterial injections will react on the patient quicker. In the
case of either method, a competent doctor must perform the treatments.
An oral tablet would be well received by all the people of the world
as an economical substitute.
GH3 is non-toxic, non-habit forming, and produces no side effects,
the patients at the Institute still were tested for any reaction to
the drug prior to undergoing the full treatment. This should be a standard
practice with any patient prior to GH3 therapy. The patient is given
a small quantity of GH3 in a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection.
Should the patient's reaction to the small injection be negative, another
injection of 2 ml is given intramuscularly (deep into the muscle tissue).
If again the patient shows a negative reaction to the injection, the
full GH3 treatment may be given in complete safety. It must be remembered
that the ingredient of GH3, PABA and diethylaminoethanol, is well tolerated
in the body. Many doctors use oral preparations containing either
ingredient for treatment and obtain gratifying results.
of treatment, whether intramuscular, intravenous, or oral, as modified
and perfected by Dr. Aslan, consists of one injection of 5 ml of GH3
three times a week for four weeks. As stated above, GH3 has a very slow
reaction in the ailment or disease, as the inroads into the affliction
are slow in developing. A second course of twelve to sixteen injections
is given following a mandatory ten-day rest period. Since GH3 is non-toxic
and non habit forming, as many courses as a doctor deems necessary can
be administered. However, the ten-day recuperative period must be observed.
The Rumanian doctors subscribe to this schedule of injections of GH3
therapy for elderly people. A preventive course of GH3 therapy injections
given middle-aged persons for retarding the aging process is slightly
different. The Rumanian method of twelve to sixteen injections is followed
by one to two months' resting period; then another series of twelve
to sixteen injections is given. This treatment could, and usually does,
go on indefinitely to forestall the aging process.
method should follow the same sequence of treatment as described above
for the injection method. The inconvenience of taking GH3 injections
over a long period emphasizes the necessity of perfecting another method
to provide this important and valuable treatment for more people. It
would be interesting if through this other method the cost could be
reduced, so that economics would not prevent people from enjoying the
benefits of anti-aging GH3.
