The history of Gerovital begins in the middle of the 20th century.
As a professor of internal medicine at the University of Bucharest, Ana Aslan founded in 1945, the National Institute of Gerontology and Geriatic Research that bears her name since 1992. It developed from 1946 to 1956 a revolutionary named after her gerontological therapy in which for the first time the use of procaine plays an essential role.
Ana Aslan - an internationally recognized scientist - has received numerous honors personal, eg In 1971 the Federal Cross of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.
She was on the board of the International Association of Gerontology and the Medical Society of the Balkans from 1980 and a full member of the Romanian Academy and served as editor of several gerontological journals.
In 1980 Ana Aslan invented a new geriatric product Aslavital, which was patented shortly after and which started the industrial production.
