GEROVITAL GH3 Procaine HCL - Anti Aging Research
GH3 PROCAINE HCL Anti Aging SUPPLEMENTS
- by Robert Koch, DSc
Procaine Hydrochloride-HCL was first synthesized in 1905 by a German chemist Albert Einhorn. He was looking for a compound that would act as an anesthetic, would be non-toxic, free of side effects, and would not be addictive. Dr. Einhorn was looking for a compound that could replace cocaine as an anesthetic. Cocaine was being used at the time as an anesthetic. However, because cocaine was toxic, addictive, and destructive to the central nervous system, its use was being outlawed. Dr. Einhorn was able to produce a compound that demonstrated the properties he was looking for. This new compound he named procaine hcl. "Pro" means, in place of, and "caine" comes from the word cocaine. Because of the similarity of the names and because they are both anesthetics, there is much confusion as to the nature of procaine. Procaine HCL when injected into the muscles acts as an anesthetic but when taken orally in a complexed form, procaine acts as a Vitamin. Procaine HCl solutions, used as anesthetics, are trade named Novocaine.
In the late 1940's Dr. Ana Aslan a Romanian cardiologist found that adding a small amount of benzoic acid to the procaine solution stabilized some of the procaine enough to protect it from the blood enzymes. This protected procaine hcl which Dr. Aslan named Gerovital H3 or GH3 and Aslavital supplements were found to be very helpful in supplying PABA and DEAE to damaged and\or diseased cells. Ana Aslan named the procaine vitamin H3. GH3 is listed under H3 in the Merck index.
Chemically procaine is the PABA ester of the amino alcohol DEAE. PABA (p-amino-benzoic acid), is a "B" vitamin. DEAE, ( diethylaminoethanol ) is a biologically active precursor of the "B" vitamin choline. Procaine is usually used in the form of the hydrochloride salt -procaine hcl- because it is highly water soluble. Procaine hydrochloride, when taken orally, enters the body by being mainly absorbed through the villi in the small intestine. Experiments show that the bulk of the procaine HCl enters the bloodstream molecularly intact. In the blood stream procaine HCl is rapidly hydrolyzed by the enzyme pseudo-cholinesterase into PABA and DEAE the two components of the procaine molecule. These metabolites are removed by the liver, chemically changed, and excreted in the urine.
Procaine HCl when combined with biologically active acids, such as folic acid, biotin,ascorbic acid, pantothenic acid, citric acid and many other acids such as amino acids, acts as a vitamin or food supplement. The vitamin acids and other biologically active acids when complexed with the procaine hcl molecule protect the procaine from the enzymes in the blood allowing the procaine to enter the cells. These vitamin supplement procaine hydrochloride complexes help the cells assimilate and utilize nutrients more efficiently. These complexed procaine compounds Dr. Koch named his patented fomulas Vitacel (Vital Cell) GH7, now GH7 PLUS, GH8 and GH9.
Procaine HCl (procaine hydrochloride) is the active ingredient in Gerovital H3 - Aslavital GH3 and in the Dr Koch formulas Vitacel GH3 through GH9. Procaine HCl is broken down rapidly by enzymes in the blood stream into PABA and DEAE. The PABA and DEAE are rapidly conjugated and removed from the blood and excreted from the body. Because of this procaine HCl and its breakdown products, metabolites, are unable to get into the cells in any great quantity to produce benefits. Procaine hcl will produce some benefits by itself, but they are very limited.
IMPROVED VITACEL GH7 AND ADVANCED GEROVITAL H3 FORMULA
Some companies produce Gerovital H3 and similar products that contain procaine hcl and the other ingredients necessary to make GH3 and the Vitacel dietary supplements, and list them on their labels but they do not have a valid product. They mix the dry ingredients together and tablet them or put them in capsules without first forming the procaine complexes. I like to use the example of making the candy called fudge. Fudge contains sugar, cocoa, condensed milk, butter and a pinch of salt. If you mix all of these together you have the correct formula but you only have a gritty cocoa in canned milk with a chunk of butter far from being Fudge. However if you cook the ingedients to the soft ball stage and then allow it to cool , then beat it properly to the right crystalline structure you end up with a delicious delight called fudge.
DR. ROBERT KOCH - ADVANCED VITACEL GH7 - IMPROVED GH3 FACTOR FORMULAS
Procaine Based Nutriments (PBNs) as I prefer to call the procaine hcl complexes or GH3 factor must be formed or the product won’t be very effective in helping cells heal and overcome their problems. Effective GH3 products in tablets or capsules containing PBNs will show on their labels not only the correct ingredients but they will also show the patent numbers* of the Koch process for forming the complexes of procaine.
