100 % of 100
GG-Essential or Geranylgeraniol (GG) is an essential building block for healthy aging. It is a plant-derived (from annatto) and supports muscle health, bone health, hormone regulation and CoQ10 synthesis.
GG provides natural supplementation and helps reduce the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs (especially the cholesterol-lowering statins) and promotes natural CoQ10 synthesis.
GG Essential also helps improve the levels of Vitamin K2 and Testosterone with many additional health benefits.

Eannatto Tocotrienols Vitamin E Supplement. A revolutionary discovery in Vitamin E by Dr. Barrie Tan.

Key Features

Cardiovascular Support

Geranylgeraniol (GG) is an essential molecule for COQ10 and cholesterol synthesis that is needed for cellular energy generation. GG not only helps in cardiovascular health but also may act as a preventive health supplement for adults.

Muscle Protein Synthesis

Age-related losses of muscle mass and strength are major contributors to reduced quality of life and loss of independence for older individuals. GG is essential for growth, differentiation, and survival of cells. Downregulation of this process, be it age-related or drug-induced, may lead to a range of muscular conditions, including muscle wasting, sorconenio, and muspothy Fortunately research suggests that replenishing GG exogenously can maintain muscle health and functions.

Bone Health

Vitamin K is best known for its blood clotting abilities, but known to a lesser extent, it is also a crucial contributor to bone health. Vitamin K- particularly the K2 MK4 form - is needed for proper functioning of proteins that deposit calcium into bones and teeth while inhibiting calcification of soft tissues such as blood vessels, kidneys, gallbladder and joints. Supplementation with GG may be a helpful strategy to replenish stores of this essential nutrient and ensure that the calcium is allocated into our bones and teeth instead of the soft tissues and arteries.

Hormone Regulation

Population-based studies show that testosterone levels in men decrease with age, and this decline has been linked to chronic diseases and shortened life expectancy. In testis-derived cells, GG was shown to regulate steroidogenesis, enhancing not only testosterone synthesis, but also synthesis of its precursor, progesterone.

CoQ10 Synthesis

CoQ10 is an important compound that has been shown to improve symptoms associated with mitochondrial disorders. Statin treatment, which directly targets the mevalonate pathway to decrease cholesterol, decreases CoQ10 (unintended) and was shown to be a myopathy biomarker. GG acts in concert as a building block to promote normal CoQ10 levels with statin application, restore mitochondrial function and support healthy muscles in a synchronous approach.

Reduces Statin Side Effects

The common side effects of long term statin treatment is muscle pain and weakness. GG Essential helps to revive and nourish muscle cells while improving the protein prenylation process.

Supports Healthy Aging

As age advances, the body needs more energy to support its functions. GG Essential acts as an energy booster supplement for adults by maintaining the levels of GG in the body.

Description

GG - Essential is a revolutionary health supplement that contains 150 mg of pure Geranylgeraniol (GG) which is a unique annatto plant-derived molecule.  


Geranylgeraniol (GG) is an endogenous compound made in the human body by the same mevalonate biochemical pathway that synthesizes cholesterol, vitamin K2, steroid hormones and ubiquinone (CoQ10). GG occurs naturally in various foods, but the majority is synthesized endogenously.

GG is an essential building block that supports muscle health, bone health, hormone regulation and CoQ10 synthesis. Production of GG declines naturally during aging and is inhibited by the use of certain pharmaceutical drugs, namely, statins and bisphosphonates.

By replenishing natural levels, GG can help reduce the risk of age-related physical decline, maintain structural support for the body and promote healthy muscle strength and function.

Recommended Dosage:

1 softgel capsule daily with a meal or as directed by your healthcare provider.

Ideally consumed with meals as it is a lipid-soluble supplement.

Our products are not a replacement to any of the prescription medications nor do we claim to cure any medical condition. We recommend you to consult your health practitioner before starting new supplements, especially if you are pregnant, lactating or on any prescription medications.

Q. What is GG?

GG is short for Geranylgeraniol, a compound that is generated by the human body through the mevalonate pathway (a biochemical pathway that helps make cholesterol, vitamin K2, steroid hormones and ubiquinone (CoQ10)). GG occurs naturally in various foods, but the majority is synthesized inside the body. GG is an essential building block that supports muscle health, bone health, hormone regulation and CoQ10 synthesis. Production of GG declines naturally during aging and is inhibited by the use of certain pharmaceutical drugs, namely, statins and bisphosphonates. By replenishing natural levels, GG can help reduce the risk of age-related physical decline, maintain structural support for the body and promote healthy muscle strength and function.

Q. What is Annatto?

The annatto (Bixa orellana) is a tropical plant with traditional medicinal benefits used since ancient times. In the recent decades, this plant was also discovered as the only known source of 2 specific isomers of Vitamin E - Delta and Gamma Tocotrienols, by Dr. Barrie Tan. It does not contain any mixed tocopherols which enhances its antioxidant properties. ‘DeltaGold’ is sourced from this annatto plant using a unique extraction technique that does not use any harsh or synthetic chemicals, petrochemicals, or solvents, which may be commonly used in other extraction methods. Most importantly, the discovery of this plant’s extraordinary properties by Dr. Barrie Tan, has now made it possible for us to have DeltaGold Tocotrienols and supplementation for Geranylgeraniol (GG). Fun fact: The annatto plant is also known as the ‘lipstick plant’ due to its common use as a natural food colorant in many foods across the world.

Q. How is GG extracted?

GG is extracted from the annatto plant using a ‘no solvent, chemical free technology’ extraction process innovated by Dr. Barrie Tan, which has been awarded a patent (GG-Gold).

Q. Why do I need a GG supplement?

As we age, our body’s capacity to produce GG declines gradually. This leads to reduced energy, low testosterone levels, fatigue and muscle pain. GG supplementation helps to overcome these complaints and supports healthy aging. GG-Essential is also a helpful supplement for individuals using certain pharmaceutical drugs for various reasons (Cholesterol lowering statins in particular). In the process of lowering cholesterol, statins also contribute to a reduction in GG production in the body. This also contributes to reduced energy, low testosterone levels, fatigue and muscle pain. Replenishing GG in the body gives a boost in all these areas.

Q. Is it safe to take Wellness Extract GG Essential with my Statins?

Yes, it may be beneficial to take GG-Essential along with statins. In the process of lowering cholesterol, statins also contribute to a reduction in GG production in the body. This may lead to reduced energy, low testosterone levels, fatigue and muscle pain. Replenishing GG in the body gives a boost in all these areas.

Q. Is it safe to take Wellness Extract GG Essential with my CoQ10?

Yes, GG is a key component in the synthesis of CoQ10. It may be beneficial to take GG-Essential with your ongoing CoQ10 supplementation.

Q. Who should take the Wellness Extract GG Essential supplement?

We recommend GG Essential to adults above age 40, or individuals who need cardiovascular support. Even younger adults above the age of 30 years may benefit with GG-Essential supplementation as it may help with testosterone production.

Q. Does Wellness Extract GG Essential contain any synthetic chemicals ?

No it does not! Wellness Extract GG Essential is a natural supplement derived from the Annatto plant. It is vegetarian, gluten-free, soy free and dairy free. It does not contain any synthetic additives.

Q. How much GG should I consume per day?

Ideally, 1 capsule per day is recommended daily, otherwise as directed by your healthcare provider.
