What is PRP-GOLD treatment?

When the body is injured, various cells work appropriately to heal wounds.

PRP-GOLD treatment is a process which stimulates each person's blood using gold particles during an incubation process.

The blood is then processed in a centrifuge and the required serum is separated and prepared for injection. Afterwards, the PRP-GOLD enhanced Gelsolin serum is injected into the required part of the body (most commonly joints) and activates the body's own local stem cells to improve regeneration and pain relief.

*Gelsolin acts as a multi-functional cell structure and cell metabolism regulator; it plays an important role in preventing toxic reactions that arise from death of cells. Moreover, gelsolin induces differentiation of the body's own cells that are essential for tissue regeneration.

When hearing about "new treatments", many people are often concerned with the effects and side-effects, but the therapeutic effects of gold are well known and documented in the field of rheumatology.


In Europe (especially Germany), PRP-GOLD treatment is already being commonly used and the proven results are carefully documented.

As the PRP-GOLD serum is created from one's own blood, the treatment is not considered as a doping agent.

(PRP-GOLD is currently being considered as the next generation of PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) therapy, which many famous Japanese athletes have undergone.)

PRP-GOLD treatment is commonly recommended for professional athletes, but also recommended as a safe and effective treatment for those who are training to become a professional athlete in the future.
