Gelum Drops: reducing lactic acid, increasing hemoglobin and lymphocytes

This is a German product that has been recommended to me by a German friend (Thank you!) and though I should share that with all the readers. So here it is her e-mail:

“Just wanted to give you some information about a product, which you can share also with others (if you like). A natural doctor, recommend me “Gelum Drops”, 3×30 drops / day . It is a natural product, which increases oxygen in the body and decrease the lactate. It is an old product and his brother used it 20 years ago for his own cancer therapy. Unfortunately the company has no information in English, but I have found this site:
It can be ordered via:¶ms%5Bsearch%5D=gelum+tropfen

Indeed, I think this is an interesting product since it can decrease lactic acid in the body produced by the tumor cells. Specifically, tumor cells are producing left handed lactic acid which is the opposite of the d-lactic acid (or right-handed lactic acid) produced by the normal cells during e.g. intensive exercise. (Ref) Gelum Drops contains right handed lactic acid which will neutralize the left-handed lactic acid produced by the cancer cells. Neutralization of this left-handed lactic acid is desired since otherwise it promotes the tumor growth via various mechanisms. As a result, via this action Gelum Drops have the potential to stop the tumor growth and reduce pain due to high lactic acid release of tumors.

In addition, it is also claimed to

  • lead to an increase of hemoglobin
  • non-specific stimulant of the immune system leading to increase lymphocytes

Here is the product description: Ref

Composition of 100 g contain:

  • 30,0 g of an aqueous solution of Calcium-Iron(III)-Phosphate-Citrate-Complex (CEPC)

In Germany the price of 100g solution is about 20 euro.

  1. Thankyou Daniel.

    I was confused regarding aspects of lactic acid. Now I understand the differences between left handed and right lactic acid.

    Also, some great tips in the book you referenced by Xandria Williams. I have purchased a Kindle copy.

  2. Hi @dng050

    I believe those probiotics produce D-lactate. D-lactate is only a small percentage of total lactate in the body, which is about 99% L-lactate.


  3. Hi @johan,

    So it would not be too risky to ingest lactic acid bacteria, since they produce so little lactate overall? However, I noticed “lactic acid” is on the ingredients list on the supplement box, besides “Lactic Acid Bacteria Fermented Extract” and “Citric Acid”. It does not say in what form or how much.

    Kind regards,

  4. Exactly. I don’t think the lactic acid in it is a problem, there’s lactic acid in many foods, bread, fermented foods, etc. It’s probably in there to preserve the probiotics. Citric acid is also used to preserve foods. It’s OK to have it in the supplement.
    It has 16 strains but not Saccharomyces boulardii and bifidobacteria, these seem also very beneficial.

  5. I’m struggling to get this product due to so many postal restrictions. Is this a similar product or same? RMS Stadtgen 21% – Lactic Acid Drops

    1. Dear Jenknee,

      Indeed, it is more challenging to order internationally from Germany. Here is an example of a Dutch company that has this product. Dutch companies may be more opened to take orders from outside the Netherlands

      Looking at the specs of each product, it seems that this has 3% lactic acid, while this one has 21% (so it has 7x higher amount of lactic acid per ml solution).

      Kind regards,

      1. I don’t think it’s about the lactic acid content, D.

        RMS Stadtgen 21% – Lactic Acid Drops:

        Purified water, L (+) lactic

        GELUM Drops:

        Aqueous solution of the potassium iron (III) phosphate citrate complex (KEPC) 30.0 g,
        L (+) – lactic acid (dextrorotatory lactic acid) 3.0 g, potassium sorbate 0.1 g

    1. I was worried about the same thing and decided to ask the manufacturer DRELUSO Pharmazeutika. This was their reply:

      “vielen Dank für Ihre Frage zu unseren Gelum Tropfen. Gelum Tropfen enthalten Eisen in Form eines Phosphatkomplexes. Dieser Komplex ist im Darm unlöslich, weshalb weder das Eisen noch das Phosphat aus diesem Komplex in den Körper aufgenommen werden. Es besteht daher keine Gefahr, durch die Einnahme der Gelum Tropfen zu viel Eisen aufzunehmen.”

      So, I guess they formulated it with a phoshate complex, making neither the iron nor the phosphate absorbable in the intestines.
