Geranylgeraniol (GG) is an endogenous nutrient in our body that declines as we age. It is essential for protein synthesis and the production of testosterone, progesterone, CoQ10 and MK4. It may also help with the management of sarcopenia. Extracted from the annatto plant, Eterna GG replenishes GG levels lost due to aging or pharmaceutical drugs (cholesterol-lowering statins in particular). Daily use of Eterna GG will help promote normal energy levels and allow you to age gracefully.
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. Research suggests that replenishing GG exogenously can maintain muscle health and function.
GG acts as a building block to promote normal CoQ10 levels with statin application, restore mitochondrial function and support healthy muscles in a synchronous approach.
Vitamin K is needed for proper functioning of proteins that deposit calcium into bones and teeth while inhibiting calcification of soft tissues such as blood vessels, kidney, gallbladder and joints. Supplementation with GG may be a helpful strategy to replenish stores of this essential nutrient and ensure the preservation of its arterial and bone health benefits.
Decline in testosterone has been linked to chronic diseases and shortened life expectancy. In testis-derived cells, GG was shown to help steroidogenesis, promoting not only testosterone synthesis, but also synthesis of its precursor, progesterone.
