What is Ge-132?
Ge-132 is the name given to OGe by the Japanese chemist, Dr. K. Asai, who originally identified this form of germanium in 1967. Today, the term Ge-132 is used interchangeably with the name OGe to indicate the compound bis-carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide.
How safe is germanium?
Inorganic forms of germanium, such as germanium dioxide, have been found to be quite toxic at high levels. However, pure, Ge-132 has no demonstrated toxicity, even in very high amounts. The real safety issue concerning Ge-132 centers around its degree of purity. Improper manufacturing procedures can result in impure Ge-132. High quality Ge-132 products have a purity of 99.7% or greater.
Which dosage form of germanium is best?
Ge-132 is available as a dietary supplement in tablet, capsule and pure powder form. The decision to use one form over another is largely a matter of personal preference, as no scientific evidence exists comparing the absorption characteristics of the various forms
