Karl Loren's Notes on Germanium
have re-established connection with Tokai Sangyo,
Japan, for our supply of organic germanium.
When I visited Japan, many years ago, I visited
the actual germanium factory of Tokai, and
spent much time with all their executives.
There are only two legitimate producers of
germanium in Japan. One, the Asai Research
Institute (ARI), sells within Japan only,
not for export. Tokai Sangyo has its own patent
and factory for making germanium, and has
an official Government license to export it.
No other Japanese company has a Government
license to export germanium.
This “germanium” has been called by several
names – causing some confusion in the marketplace.
“GE 132” is the most common label currently,
or “organic germanium” but neither of these
labels has a high degree of technical accuracy.
Dr. Asai got the first patent on germanium, and assigned
it to the Asai Research Institute. Around the same time
Tokai Sangyo got its patent, using a slightly different
process, to arrive at the same “substance.”
Dr. Asai refers to this substance as “organic germanium”
but the patents are more scientific. The Asai Research
Institute, at one point, contemplated selling its germanium
within the US and therefore applied for a US patent on
its “organic germanium.” That patent was granted,
and shows very good results in treating cancer. Asai Research,
for some unknown reason, has never pursued this opportunity
within the US, and now limits itself to providing germanium,
for prescription use in Japan, only.
Nonetheless, the ARI patent, in the US, provides a good
benchmark of honesty and accuracy for this substance.
This patent is Number 4,681,960 in 1987 at the US Patent
Office. On technical form for this substance is "bis-carboxy-ethyl
The Japanese patents have now expired, so anyone can use
those original processes to manufacture germanium. However,
I have spent many hours studying the process by which
someone can test a substance to determine whether it is,
or is not, this substance. It is very easy to produce
a mixture of “germanium oxide” with “vitamin
C” in such proportions that virtually no test can
distinguish it from the true substance. Other complexities
abound in this area – so that, ultimately, only
your trust in the integrity of the supply chain can assure
you of having the authentic substance.
I have been approached, many times, by companies in China
to purchase their “germanium.” I have even
engaged in numerous back-and-forth messages on the subject
of testing the material, and felt strongly that these
Chinese sources did NOT have a fool-proof way of guaranteeing
that their germanium was the same as Dr. Asai first developed,
and that is now being sold by Tokai Sangyo.
As far as I am concerned, there is only one source in
the entire world that deserves the acceptance of true
germanium – Tokai Sangyo.
That is the substance we sell.
I have Dr. Asai’s entire book about germanium on
my web site – it has been long out of print. The
web site is http://www.organicgermanium.net/images/dr_asai_book.pdf.
I also traveled to Belgium to research germanium in Europe
– Tokai germanium was then the only honest germanium
I could find there.
When I have done extensive research on the web I have
not found a single other source of germanium sold in the
US, or elsewhere, that identifies its source of manufacture.
None can claim to get their germanium from Tokai since
we have an exclusive agency agreement with Tokai.
I know for a fact that germanium has been offered out
of China with no way of finding out who actually makes
it or how to verify its authenticity. I believe virtually
all “germanium” being sold in the US currently
comes from China, and no one wants to admit that.
In the past when we sold this product we had three sizes
and prices. There was a bottle 100 caps, 35 mg each, at
$100, then a bottle of 100 Caps, 150 mg each, at a higher
price and finally a bottle of 50 caps, 500 mg each, at
a still higher price.
We quit selling germanium those many years ago because
Tokai was not able to meet the much lower prices for so-called
germanium coming into the US from unknown origins. Some
of that “germanium” was actually purchased
in Taiwan, or some other place, smuggled into Japan, repackaged
and exported, illegally, out of Japan. The largest US
importer of this “germanium” at that time
is still a larger seller today. They sued me for libel
when I alleged that they were not selling legitimate Japanese
germanium. We settled out of court with no penalty for
With our new bulk cost and new supply I have settled on
the following prices. The first three should be put on
our shopping cart immediately. The one kg price can be
a “ask for quote” price reference on the cart.
100 caps, 35 mg each, $100
100 caps, 100 mg each, $250
The above two are in bottles, the germanium is in a base
of Watercress, Garlic Extract, Taheebo Extract and Ginseng.
Packet of 100 grams, $900 (note, pure germanium, no extras)
This 100 gram packet is sealed and then further packed
in a storage container so that, after opening the sealed
packet, the contents can be poured into the container
for further storage.
Bulk Germanium, one Kg, $6,000
There are no additives, preservatives added to any of
The first three are subject to our usual discounts up
to 40%. That is, 25% discount for four or more of the
same size, 30% for purchase of 8, 35% for purchase of
24 and 40% discount for the purchase of 60. The packets
would be subject only to a maximum discount of 30%, since
a bulk kg would then be less expensive per gram than 24
packets. The bulk kg is not subject to further discount.
We have a certificate of purity for every batch we purchase.
There are no refunds except for unopened (sealed) containers.
In due course I also want to change our general guarantee
to be good for 30 days only – but we can implement
this, for now, on germanium only – measuring time
from the time of receipt by customer. This guarantee should
be noted on the shopping cart also, and marked to apply
to germanium, only, for now.
Obviously with this type of sizing someone could decide
to buy a smaller number of bottles of the larger dosage
rather than a larger number of bottles with a lower dosage.
I have not figured out where the breaking points are,
but they can be figured by the customer.
Those who might be interested in the 100 gram packet should
realize that Dr. Asai suggests about 2 grams per day,
or more, to treat cancer. At this rate the packet of 100
grams would last for about 50 days – plenty of time
to tell whether there is going to be a worthwhile benefit.
Since a heaping teaspoon is about 5 grams, people can
measure the germanium, in the loose powder packet, with
a “slightly less than flat” teaspoon. It has
no taste – can be put into the mouth directly, or
into water or juice.
Many people who are sick do not absorb anything well,
so the mouth tissues are the best place for absorption
– the germanium should be kept in the mouth for
30 seconds or so, so that dissolving and absorption takes
place there – if mixed with water, the water should
be held in the mouth for these 30 seconds before swallowing.
Germanium will dissolve quickly in warm water –
more slowly in cold water.
It can be taken with or without food, at any time of the
Germanium does not deteriorate – so “shelf
life” is not a factor. Storage conditions, likewise,
are not a factor in its effectiveness.
It will not interfere with any drug and there is no toxic
dosage for germanium.
We would never claim that germanium will “cure”
cancer, but we can say, as we do for Taheebo Life Tea,
that it will work fast, or not at all. Thus, a person
who gets a packet of germanium, and uses it at the rate
of 2 grams per day, about a 50-day supply, should see
very positive and very obviously objective evidence of
improvement in a month or so. If he does not see that
improvement, I would not recommend further expenditure
of money, although, a longer time might be helpful.
I do not ever advise someone getting a biopsy. If they
have a “lump” and want to treat that with
germanium – fine – don’t get a biopsy
– just look for the lump to get smaller, softer,
lighter in color (if observable) and to cause less pain
– these are the objective measures of improvement
to look for. Click
here for my data on biopsy.
If there have been or are ongoing medical tests, or a
biopsy, OK – then the same significant improvement
in less than 50 days. If there has been or is ongoing
drug or radiation treatment, the improvement will probably
take longer, but can still be achieved.
If there is that improvement within that first month,
the person should realize that the usage should then continue
at the same dosage, at least, until the cancer is GONE.
You are not looking just for shrinkage, but GONE!
On this basis the $900 is less expensive than most medical
The fact that medical drugs are very harmful, no matter
how they handle a cancer, must be coupled with the fact
that these medical drugs are often covered by health insurance
whereas germanium will probably never be.
There is obviously no guarantee that germanium will produce
a positive result for anyone.
If a person wants four of these 100 gram packets, the
25% discount applies, and they then cost $675 each. Eight
packets would cost $630 each. By the time a person considers
getting 24 packets, it would obviously be less expensive
to buy a full kg and this 24-packet discount level is
When and as a person buys, for instance, 4 packets, uses
one, and wants to return 3 unopened for a refund, the
refund must be calculated on the basis that the one packet
he used cost $900, and the refund calculated accordingly.
When and as we sell any germanium in these higher quantities,
we should let the customer know that there will be no
re-supply if we find them advertising and re-selling germanium
at any discount below our various prices. The entire US
has been deprived of this wondrous substance because of
the willingness of many US distributors to buy counterfeit
stuff with unknown origins and sell at prices that do
not reflect authenticity.
