A world’s first in healthy aging.


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, GG-Gold® replenishes GG levels lost due to aging or pharmaceutical drugs (cholesterol-lowering statins in particular). Daily use of GG-Gold® will help promote normal energy levels and allow you to age gracefully*.

Bone Health

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*.


Our friends at PricePlow have written a great article about GG-Gold® geranylgeraniol. This informative piece dives into the science behind GG-Gold and explores its potential benefits for CoQ10 production, muscle health, testosterone levels, and more. If you’d like to learn why GG-Gold® is considered an “essential nutrient you’ve never heard of,” check out the full article:
