Most common question about Vitacel?
1. HOW DOES Gerovital H3 and VITACEL GH3 – GH9 WORK?
Procaine hcl (procaine hydrochloride) is the active ingredient in Vitacel GH3 through Vitacel 9 dietary supplements. 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. However when procaine HCl, is complexed properly (Doctor Koch patented procaine complexing process) the procaine HCl is protected from the action of the enzymes in the blood and tissues this protection gives the procaine enough time to be transferred into the cells of the body where it helps the cells rebuild, repair, and detoxify..

4. WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF Gerovital H3 and Vitacel GH3-7-8-9 AND PROCAINE HCL?
As with many of the great scientific advances of history, GH3 was discovered by accident. The active ingredient of GH3 is procaine HCL, a local anesthetic developed in 1905 by Doctor Alfred Einhorn, a German scientist. Over the years, doctors using procaine HCL began to notice regenerative antiaging effects: arthritis disappeared in some patients, hair regrew or recolored and skin quality improved. However, the numbing effect of procaine hcl leads the body to trigger cholinesterase, an enzyme, which breaks the procaine down and ejects it from the cells in about one hour.
During the 1950’s,Doctor Ana Aslan, a gerontologist and director of the Bucharest Institute of Geriatrics in Romania, was the first to recognize that these discovered anti-aging regenerative effects of procaine hcl might be extended if the procaine were stabilized so that it would not "attack" the body cells with a numbing effect. After years of laboratory and clinical work, she and her colleagues succeeded in doing just that, by adding benzoic acid and potassium metabisulphate, this was the birth of Dr. Aslan's Gerovital H3 commonly known as Aslavital GH3. The gentleness of the resulting compound leads the cells not to reject it, rather it stays in the body for more than six hours.
In the late 1970’s, Doctor Robert Koch Dsc., a biochemist in Utah USA, discovered GH3 from a sister whose Asthma had benefited from taking Gerovital GH3. Dr.Koch has dedicated the last 25 years committed to improving and advancing the original Aslavital, Gerovital H3 and GH3 procaine hcl antiaging formula. Dr. Koch has continued to improve the GH3 factor and currently produces the best choice of GH3 factor antiaging formulas available worldwide; including **Vitacel GH3 , Aslavital, GH3 Special, GH-7, GH-7 Plus, GH-8, GH-9 andVital Pet health supplements. Dr. Koch has been granted USA and foreign **patents** worth over $100,000 for a his advanced GH3 factor formula which improves the longevity and potency of the original GH3 factor by a factor of 6 times. Over 40,000 people have switched from the original GH3 because of the improved Vitacel supplement health benefits.
3. IS VITACEL GH3 SAFE?
"There are few substances on the market today which have undergone as much scientific testing of GH3. There are even fewer which have shown a comparable amount of positive results without adverse side effects…”
Jerome Godin, from the book GH3 TO DISCOVERY.
Gerovital H3 procaine hcl GH3 has been thoroughly tested more than probably any other product designed for use in the human body; 100 years of clinical investigation and scientific research testing, GH3 has been used by tens of millions of people who have shown no harmful side effects. Further, GH3 does not interact with any prescription medications. In contrast, traditional drug therapy has a built-in danger of mixing the wrong products.
4. ARE Vitacel GH3-7-8-9 DRUGS OR VITAMINS?
Vitacel GH3-7-8-9 are not classified as a drug but is a complexed vitamin C compound, since it is composed of two B vitamins. It does not replace other vitamins however, because the processing of the product makes these vitamins behave differently than other Vitamins. It is a Dietary Supplement and is regulated as such.
Chemically, procaine the active ingredient in GH3, 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.
GH3-7-8-9 have no relation to HGH or human growth hormone injections or supplements!
5. WHAT IS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN VITACEL SUPPLEMENTS?
Procaine, the active ingredient of GH3, is composed of two naturally occurring B vitamins known as PABA (Paramino Benzoic Acid) and DEAE (Diethyl Amino Ethanol). PABA stimulates the production of Folic Acid and Vitamins K and B1, while DEAE helps make Choline and Acetylcholine, vital in nerve function and proper cellular functioning.
6. WHY ARE THE VITACEL GH-7 FORMULAS PATENTED?
For a visual chart and comparison of the Original Gerovital versus the Vitacel GH-7, 8 and 9 formulas go to:GH3 versus Vitacel formula charts.
Dr. Koch developed a process for producing the GH3 factor and then incorporating it into tablets that he named Vitacel 3. This GH3 factor or Benzoate double salt of Procaine contains Benzoic Acid which has no beneficial effect except to stabilize the Procaine and since Benzoic Acid can be an allergen federal law limits the amount of benzoates that can be added to foods etc. The amount of Benzoic Acid in the original GH3 only protects 15% of the procaine hcl. Dr. Koch surmised, “why not complex the Procaine with materials that are beneficial and protect 100% of the Procaine?” This he did forming a whole new series of compounds which he was able to **patent in the USA and foreign countries. He developed processes complexing the Procaine hcl with B Vitamins, Vitamin C, with Amino Acids and with many other bio-active compounds. The combination of these Procaine double salts and bio-active compounds, he named the patented GH3 products - *GH-7 or *VITACEL 7. This combination of complexes provides protection for 100% of the Procaine hcl GH3 factor- as well as improving the revitalizing benefits of the Procaine. The GH-7 is 6 times - 600% - more potent than the original Aslan Aslavital Gerovital H3 formula. The original injectable GH3 formula only protected 15% of the GH3 active ingredients while the Dr. Koch GH3 factor formula protects all 100% of the active ingredients, providing more potent anti aging and cell life enhancing benefits.
**Dr. Koch: Vitacel GH-7 Plus, GH-8, GH-9 and Vital-Pet dietary supplements are protected by:**
U.S. Patents 5,162,344 - 5,283,258 - 5,283,068 - 5,254,686 and Foreign patents.
8. ARE VITACEL GH3 - GH9 ALL NATURAL ANTIAGING HEALTH SUPPLEMENTS?
PABA and DEAE are substances which occur naturally in the cells. Procaine hcl takes these two natural ingredients and combines them with weak "covalent" bonds; thus they can enter the cells more easily to provide anti-aging benefits. Just taking PABA or DEAE separately would not have the same effect, because they would not effectively enter the cells. Romanian Doctor Ana Aslan, pioneering work on stabilizing the procaine hcl made it stay in the cells longer in order to extend the regenerative antiaging effects. In the latest Koch formulas Vitacel 8 and Vitacel 9 natural antioxidandants which include Coenzyme Q10 - CoQ10, Lycopene, L-carnitine, Milk Thistle, Ginkgo biloba, Artichoke and Grape seed extracts are combined with the patented GH7 to make the ultimate antiaging and antioxidant formulas available worldwide.
9. WHAT ARE THE LIFE EXTENSION AND LONGEVITY HEALTH BENEFITS OF GH3-7-8-9?
Related human GH3 research report: Health Benefits - 7 year Study Parhon institute
The most impressive longevity studies on increased life span were conducted by Professor Berger in France, and by Dr. Richard Hothschild, PhD of Corona del Mar. They conducted rat and mice studies which showed that animals treated with GH3 may live up to 30% longer than animals in the control groups. Dr. Aslan reported a reduction in mortality rate in her human subjects in her Romanian Geriatric clinic, although her figures are less specific.
The reported health benefits by those who have taken GH3 over time have showed improvements in circulatory function, skin elasticity, ulcers, Parkinsonism, arthritis, hair loss, senility, memory, muscular power, lung capacity and depression. According to the reports, practically all aging phenomena diminished in severity with GH3. It is important to point out that the health benefits were a result of people taking the Gh3 or Gh7 over a long period of time, sometimes many months or years.
10. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VITACELS and OTHER GH3 PRODUCTS?
43. Which of the Vitacel dietary supplements are best for me?
The Vitacel GH3 to GH-9 anti-aging health supplements are with a patented Procaine complexing process that has improves and protects the anti-aging GH3 factor by up to 600%, over the original Dr. Aslan Gerovital H3 formula. The latest Vitacel antiaging health products are supplemented with a variety of proven super antioxidants and herbal remedies including; CoQ10, L-carnitine, Lycopene,Milk Thistle, Grape Seed, Artichoke, Ginkgo biloba.
11. DO PETS BENEFIT FROM TAKING VITAL PET GH3 SUPPLEMENTS?
Thousands of Vital Pet users and Veterinary research report positive health benefits for Pets and animals, usually along the same lines as those experienced by humans. Pet health conditions such as Arthritis, allergies, skin problems, falling hair and slow healing have all benefited Pets who were given Vital Pet supplements.
Doctor Daniel King DMV (Doctor of Veterinarian medicine) did extensive two year Veterinary research using Vital Pet procaine based health supplements in his Veterinarian practice.
“Vital Pet is especially supportive of geriatric pets. A noticeable increase in their activity level is a common observation on the part of the owners. Vital Pet has been very effective in controlling degenerative Spinal Disc Disease and Arthritis in dogs and cats. Vital Pet has been very supportive of dogs and cats with immune suppression related disease. I also routinely use Vital Pet when treating functional hepatitis in pets. As you know, pets do not respond to a placebo effect: nor do they respond to positive mental attitude. I would be able to collect 10-15 affidavits from pet owner clients to support the positive impact of Vital Pet for animal health care.”
12. ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS IN TAKING VITACEL GH3 – GH9 SUPPLEMENTS?
The Vitacel GH3 products are absorbed into the system within 15 to 20 minutes. The Niacin in the Vitacel product, which opens up the blood vessels, may produce in some, redness and itchy-ness of the skin which will last less than 10 minutes or so. Niacin is excellent for the nervous system with improved circulation, reduced high blood pressure and increased energy. Research shows that some have a mild headache and slight feeling of nausea for two to three days. This is explained as arising from the system "adjusting" to the new input and in particular being detoxified by the potent antioxidant element of GH3 and the healing reaction. The side effects are often associated with the “Healing Process”. Less than 20% of GH3 users report any of the above mentioned side effects.
40. CAN VITACEL GH3 – GH9 PROMOTE DETOXIFICATION?
The mild toxins, which accumulate in the body from food and water, may be purged on GH3. This detoxification resembles that experienced on a sudden change of nutritional intake, fasting or a Vitamin program. Such a "Healing reaction" usually features headache, mild nausea or flu like symptoms. Somewhat less that 20% of GH3 users experience these reactions.
42. ARE VITACEL GH-3 – GH9 PRODUCTS LEGAL FOR USE IN THE USA AND CANADA?
Yes. Vitacel GH3 and Vital Pet health products are manufactured in the USA as dietary supplements and shipped lab direct from the Utah manufacturing lab. GH3 is regulated under the Dietary Supplement Act.
Our best products are VITACEL GH7, GH7 PLUS, GH8 & GH9 because
100% of the key ingredient, Procaine HCl, is complexed in such a way as to remain in our system for up to eight hours versus the earlier products, including the original GH3, whereby only 15% of the complexed ingredients remained in our system for up to eight hours.
GH7 - 100mg Procaine HCl, is a liquid ADVANCED Procaine solution in a tablet form, with 7 key nutrients is complexed in such a way as to piggy-back on the Procaine molecules providing more and longer lasting Procaine for optimizing and life extending the healthy cells, while repairing and rejuvenating the sick and damaged cells that cannot normally assimilate the much needed raw materials in order to function properly.
GH7 PLUS - 200mg Procaine HCl, then, has exactly the same ingredients as that of regular GH7 - 100mg Procaine HCl, but has double the amount of all the ingredients. They come in capsule form and are faster absorbed than tablets.
Vitacel 7 Plus
GH8 - 100mg Procaine HCl, has all the ingredients of the GH7 in the capsule but has the 4 added super anti-oxidants such as: Grape Seed Extract, Ginkgo Biloba, Milk Thistle and Artichoke Extract.
GH9 - 100mg Procaine HCl, has all the ingredients of the GH7 in the capsule but has the 3 added super anti-oxidants such as: Acetyl L-carnitine, CoQ-10 and Lycopene Complex.
