100ppm Colloidal Germanium

 High ppm Colloidal Germanium - Normally Eck-Tech's colloidal minerals are ~ 10ppm but this has a much higher potency at ~100ppm

What is the history behind it?

 The name is derived from the Latin name for Germany, 'Germania' Germanium was used in early transistors similar to the one featured here.

If there were a competition for the chemical element mostly likely to generate schoolboy howlers, the winner should be germanium. It's inevitable that the substance with atomic number 32 is quite often described as a flowering plant with the common name cranesbill. Just one letter differentiates the flower geranium from the element germanium - an easy enough mistake.

In 1886, that German chemist Clemens Winkler isolated the element from a newly discovered mineral called argyrodite, found in a mine near his home town of Freiburg in Saxony. Winkler first toyed with the name neptunium, after the recently discovered planet. But in 1877, a fellow chemist called Hermann had found a substance in the mineral tantalite which he believed was a new metallic element. Hermann had already taken the name neptunium for what later proved to be a mistaken finding. There was no new element in the tantalite.

Unaware of this mistake, Winkler decided to name his new element after his country. At the time, Germany was still relatively new, unified in the Franco-Prussian war in 1871. It might seem strange that he called his find germanium when Winkler knew his country as Deutschland, but the tradition was to use Latin names where possible, and the Romans had known much of the area as Germania, so this is where the element truly took its name from.

For a good fifty years, germanium was little more than a box on the periodic table. It really wasn't good for anything. It was only with the development of electronics that germanium's value as a very effective semiconductor came to light. A semiconductor is a material with conductivity between a conductor and an insulator, whose conductivity can be altered by an outside influence like an electric field or the impact of light.

The first use of germanium on a large scale was to replace the most basic electronic component, the diode. In the original valve or vacuum tube form, this had a heater that gave off electrons and an anode to which the electrons were attracted across a vacuum. It's like a one way flow valve in a water pipe - electrons can flow from the heater to the anode, but not the other way round. 

As a semiconductor, germanium allowed the production of a solid state equivalent to the diode. Like most semiconductors, germanium can have impurities added to make it an electron donor - a so-called n-type material - or an electron acceptor, called p-type. By marrying p and n type strips of germanium, the element provided the same diode effect.

Germanium really took off with the development of the transistor, a solid state version of the triode valve. Here a small current can be used to control a larger one, amplifying a signal or acting as a switch. Germanium transistors were very common, but now have been replaced by silicon.

Once silicon took over, it might seem that germanium would be relegated to the backwaters of chemical obscurity as an also-ran that was no longer worth using. This has not happened because there are still applications where germanium is valuable, particularly in the specialist electronics of night vision equipment and as a component with silica in the fibre of the fibre optic cables used in communications.

Unlike many of the basic elements, there aren't many germanium compounds that have found a use. Germanium dioxide can be used as a catalyst in the production of the PET plastic used in many bottles, though it is rarely employed for this in Europe and the US. It is still primarily the pure element that has a role, if rather more specialized than it first was, in our electronics and communications. You may like to say it with flowers and give someone a gift of a geranium - but you're more likely to communicate down a modern fibre optic phone line, and then its germanium all the way.


Germanium is used for heart and blood vessel conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease; for eye conditions, including glaucoma and cateratcs; and for liver conditions, including hepatitis and cirrhosis.

Some people use germanium for osteoarthis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), pain, weak bones (osteoporosis), low energy, and AIDS.

Other uses include heavy metal poisoning, including mercury and cadmium poisoning; depression; cancer; food allergies; and yeast and viral infections.

Germanium is also used for increasing circulation of blood to the brain, supporting the immune system, and as an antioxident.

Proponents claim germanium can be used to treat leukemia and cancers of the lung, bladder, larynx, breast, and uterus. They also claim it can help neurosis, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, cardiac insufficiency, Parkinson’s disease, neuralgia, chronic fatigue, hepatitis, and cirrhosis of the liver. Supporters say germanium stimulates the body's production of interferon, a naturally occurring anti-cancer agent. Some say that it helps the immune system by boosting the activity of natural killer cells, a type of white blood cell that attacks invading germs.

The late Dr. Kazuhiko Asai of Japan began investigating the biological properties of germanium after reading reports from Russia that said the mineral had tremendous therapeutic value. In 1969, Dr. Asai founded the Asai Germanium Research Institute. He reported that he had developed a way to produce germanium that was chemically identical to the germanium extracted from plants. Dr. Asai also found that germanium was present in many common herbal remedies, including ginseng, garlic, comfrey, and aloe.

Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winning biochemist, stated that germanium helped to increase the delivery of oxygen to cells. He believed that boosting the oxygen supply to healthy cells slowed the growth of tumors

Colloidal germanium is on a list of nanoparticles that are of particular interest. Colloidal germanium particles are highly crystalline in form. Colloidal germanium is highly conductive electronically. Its electrical properties come between the properties of metal and substances that insulate. Germanium is a semi-conductor that is used in transistors and integrated circuits and is comparative to other nanoparticles currently being used in electronic applications.

Colloidal germanium is used as a remedy for several physical symptoms and also for symptoms of depression. Germanium is a natural element and when presented as colloidal germanium it can even be consumed as a tonic or supplement. The compound is known to have toxic effects on some bacteria. It helps in the prevention of both cancer and AIDS. It is also used for treating cancer as a nutritional supplement. This substance may improve the immune system, increase a person’s blood level oxygen supply, give the person extra energy and stomp out any free radicals in their system. Colloidal germanium is also used to shield persons from radiation.

Colloidal germanium can also be used for treating vision problems, arthritis, high blood pressure or heavy metal poisoning as in mercury or lead poisoning. To find out if you are deficient in germanium you can opt for a hair analysis which will reveal if sufficient stores of germanium are present. Almost all natural remedies have higher than average amount of germanium in them and some of the most effective herbs available are the ones with the highest levels of germanium in their compositions. This substance, being so tiny in structure works at the molecular level to eliminate the menacing free radicals, in particular each cell’s unburnt hydrocarbons.

Germanium and Plants

In terms of plant biology, when water is broken down into oxygen and hydrogen by this method, oxygen is discharged from the plant and hydrogen combines with the carbon of carbon dioxide absorbed by the plant to form carbohydrate. In effect, this means that in the process of assimilation plants produce starch sugar electrochemically from water only, a fact which seems to verify that germanium or some other semi conducting substance is essential to the growth of plants. In fact, although in quantities which vary a great deal from plant to plant, all plants seem to contain germanium. Observing such phenomena, I was astonished at how the laws of nature seemed to support the hypothesis that germanium plays a very important role in relation to biochemical life. Discoveries lending verification, however, followed in rapid succession. I was further surprised to find that the plants containing unusually large quantities of germanium were without exception those valued as Chinese medicinal herbs. This discovery renewed my admiration for the accumulated wisdom and experience of Oriental medicine with its 2,OOO-year history, and added to my incentive to uncover the biochemical effects of germanium. My first steps were to measure the germanium content of those plants reputed to have beneficial effects in the treatment of malignant tumors. I obtained the following results.  

  • Shelf fungus (Trametes cinnabarina Fr.) 800-2000 ppm  
  • Ginseng (from Shimane Prefecture, Japan) 250 ppm  
  • Ginseng (from Shinano district, Japan) 320 ppm  
  • Sanzukon (Codonopsis Tangshen) 257 ppm  
  • Sushi (Angelica pubescens Maxim.) 262 ppm  
  • Baternut{Trapajaponica Flerov) 239 ppm  
  • Boxthorn seed (Lycium Chinese mill) 124 ppm  
  • Wisteria knob (gall) ( Wisteria ftoribunda ) I 08 ppm  
  • Pearl barley ( Coicis Semen) 50 ppm  
  • Gromwell (Lithosemi Radix) (Lithospermum officinale) 88 ppm  

Shelf fungus, heading the list above, for centuries has been reputed to be effective in the treatment of cancer, and Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn has even referred to this remarkable herb in his book, Cancer Ward. Another plant reported to be effective in the treatment of cancer is a moss found in a small area of the Japanese countryside. I obtained some and was moved rather strangely to find that it also contained a rather large amount (250 ppm) of germanium. It should be pointed out, however, as later research revealed, 250 ppm is far from being an effective dosage against cancer. Next, I analyzed those plants which are generally regarded as conducive to good health and found that they also contain fairly large quantities of germanium:  

  • Aloe 77 ppm  
  • Comfrey (Symphytum Peregimum) 152 ppm  
  • ChIorella 76 ppm  
  • Garlic 754 ppm  
  • Bandai udo (Aralia cordata) 72 ppm  
  • Bandai moss 255 ppm  

Note: The germanium content of the plants analyzed in both of the above lists is not distributed evenly throughout the plant body. With ginseng, for example, even ginseng grown in Chinshan, Korea, where the world's most fertile crops of ginseng are produced, germanium is concentrated in the area extending from the center of the roots to the stems of the leaves; while the heavily concentrated area registers as much as 4,000 ppm, the peripheral root hairs contain no germanium at all. Results of the above analyses and subsequent experiments eventually enabled me to give a plausible explanation for the presence of germanium in plants. Ginseng, for example, will not grow freely but requires soil of a particular consistency. Even then, from ancient times it has been known that after one good crop it takes up to 30 years to produce another crop of harvestable quality in the same soil. I conducted an experiment by obtaining ginseng sprouts approximately 8 cm in length and planted them in separate boxes. One box was sprinkled with a solution of germanium acetate and the other was left untreated. Six months later, the sprouts to which the germanium acetate was given had grown to a height of 30 cm and gave off the distinct aroma of ginseng. In contrast, the sprouts in the second box had grown to about 10 cm and gave off only a faint scent of ginseng. Obviously, germanium played an important role in the growth of this plant.

A Substitute for Oxygen  

The organic germanium compound increases the oxygen supply in a living body. The compound leads to the cure of various diseases and produces health sustaining effects by serving as a substitute for oxygen in combining with hydrogen ions and other waste substances in the body. In the following experiment, for example, the germanium compound was given orally to a rat in amounts calculated at 30 mg per kilogram of its body weight. When the rat was examined 1 1;2 hrs later, the distribution of germanium in its body was found to be as follows:  

Distribution of Organic Germanium in Parts Per Million - (Male Wistar Rat 180g receiving 30mg/kg body weight) lung 22.5 ppm, heart 2.5 ppm, stomach 188.0 ppm, liver 12.0 ppm, kidney 15.0 ppm, spleen 27.5 ppm, testicles 8.0 ppm, urine 90.0 ppm, small intestine 522.0 ppm, mucous membrane of small intestine 788.0 ppm, contents of small intestine 507.6 ppm, caecum and large intestine mucous membrane of caecum and large intestine 15.5 ppm, contents of caecum and large intestine 21.5 ppm, cerebral bone 21.5 ppm, blood 43.2 ppm  

As is shown in the table. only 1 1/2 hrs after administration, a large amount of the compound still remains in the stomach as it has not yet been absorbed. It is also evident, however, that the germanium content in the blood is still relatively high. In the blood, it is believed that germanium combines mostly with red blood cells a theory which can be deduced from the fact that red blood cells, which are negative charge carriers and have properties permitting penetration by negative ions. have an electrochemical structure closely akin to the germanium compound. Thus, it appears that germanium combines with the red blood cells together with haemoglobin. In the ensuing pages of this book I propose to develop the concept of my organic germanium compound as a health giving substance rather than a medicine and through the weight of personal evidence provide a more complete way of life.  

Elixir of Life  

In the book Tales From a Western Castle by Yasushi lnoue, there is a very interesting conversation between Genghis Khah and an invited Chinese scholar, regarding long life. Genghis Khan: "You come from far off, do you have medicine for long life?" Scholar: "There is a way of healthful living, there is no medicine." Genghis Khan: "Then there is really no medicine for long life?" Scholar. "There is a way of healthful living, there is no medicine."  

Germanium regulates the amount of cholesterol in the blood, and by animal experimentation, it has been proven that it prevents amyloidosis, the ring leader in causing the phenomenon of aging. At the 64th Conference of the Japan athological Society held in April 1975. the results of the following experiment were presented : "In ICR mice two years old, spontaneous development of amyloidosis was widely observed in various organs of 12/14 cases, including the kidneys, digestive organs, liver. spleen, heart and adrenal glands. No relationship of myloidosis with chronic inflammation was established. Mice of the same strain were used as an experimental group. These animals were fed organic germanium from five weeks of age for a period of 22 months. In the 30 mglkg  administration groups amyloidosis was induced in 3/6 cases. On the other hand, in the 300 mglkg administration groups, 12/14 cases presented no sign of its development." Perusal of this report reveals its amazing significance. Amyloidosis, also known as amyloid degeneration. as any medical encyclopaedia will tell you, is a disease which occurs when amyloid degeneration, appears in the body. In plain words, it is the principal cause of aging. Since germanium completely inhibits the development of amyloidosis, it would be no exaggeration to call organic germanium an "elixir of life." The impotence of modern medicine against incurable diseases is simply flagrant. The root of impotence lies in the absence of philosophical background in modern medicine. As a result it easily falls into an attitude of local or microscopic research; the methods of treatment become symptomatic. For this reason, when cure of cancer or Behcet's disease, for example, by prescription of organic germanium compound is reported the doctors laugh me off saying, "Are you a magician?" My reply is, "No, on the contrary, the god cast a spell on me to synthesize organic germanium compound from elemental germanium and to use it to treat incurable disease: the magic is in the hand of the god." 



Germanium has the same physical structure as diamond, but presents as a metal-like appearance. Germanium is an excellent metalloid for stimulating finding the truth beyond the form and is therefore a particularly useful addition to truth potions, and to cut through mental confusions and prejudices.
