Germanium is one of the most dynamic new discoveries in the realm of trace elements necessary for optimum nutritional health. Germanium raises the level of activity of various organs (facilitates oxygen uptake) and helps to expel harmful pollutants and arrest germ activity. Germanium serves as an electrical semiconductor, helping correct distortions in the electrical fields of the body.
Germanium is still being researched for all its possible supplementary applications. Poor immune system and low energy indicate germanium deficiencies. It is believed to be effective for viral, bacterial and fungal infections.
