Geranylgeraniol (GG): The secret to recharging your body and delaying ageing!
GG is a compound made in humans and plants in the mevalonate pathway, the same pathway where CoQ10, Vitamin K2 and hormones are made. It is found in many plants and fruits, but the most abundant source is the annatto plant found in South America. This compound is now available in a supplement.
With research backing up its ability to replace those essential substances that we lose as we age and because of effects of medication, GG can help to increase energy by building CoQ10, strengthening your bone structure, repair and avoid muscle loss and increase your testosterone levels!

GG (Geranylgeranyl) and Testosterone
Population studies show that testosterone levels in men decrease with age. This decline links with chronic disease and shortened life expectancy. It is also further decreased by drugs such as cholesterol medication (Statins).
Testosterone in men is made by the testis through a pathway called the mevalonate pathway. GG is central in this pathway. It regulates testosterone production. (figure 1) It has been shown in animals that 66 mg per day of GG elevates testosterone production. GG is a key in testosterone production and is useful in reversing ageing and muscle wasting in men and women.
Figure 1. The mevalonate pathway. Notice the central role of GG
Testosterone in men is necessary for:
- Sexual development and sexual drive
- Muscle development and growth
- Bone mass
- Muscle mass and strength
- Production of red blood cells and sperm
Low testosterone levels will cause
- Loss of muscle mass
- Low libido and reduced sperm count
- Irritability, poor concentration, and depression
- Loss of body hair
- Brittle bones
In women low testosterone levels
- Affects ovary function
- Causes brittle bones
- Affects libido
Figure 2. Notice how age and statins affect GG and in turn testosterone production, CoQ10, muscle function and Vit K2
Figure 3. Now see how GG supplementation fixes the problem
Participate in the testosterone trial – for men over 50.
Endocare is running a trial to determine how much 1 gel capsule of GG per day will elevate testosterone levels over a period of 2 months. To be part of this trial you must be willing to:
- Drink 1 GG gel capsule per day for 2 months. Endocare will provide the gel capsules free of charge.
- You must be willing to pay for the lab to test your testosterone levels before you start, after 1 month and after 2 months.
- You must be resident in South Africa.
