The cucumber or sea slug is an unattructive looking creator. It is soft and slimy and looks like a big worm. Notwithstanding its unimposing appearance, the sea cucumber, or gamat in Malay has been sought and used by the Malays since time immemorial to treat a variety of ailment. It is also used by pregnant women. Traditionally, the see cucumbers are boded into a soup and consumed although it smells and tastes horrible. However not all varieties of sea cucumbers have healing properties.
Today, thanks to modern biotechnology and to one man, the same medicinal value of the sea cucumber is made available in capsules, cream, gel and as drink, minus the horrible smell and taste.
A man of science, Dato’ Dr Hassan Yacob who holds a PhD in clinical pharmacology from the Royal College of Surgeons in London initially dismissed the use of gamat for healing purposes as only folklore until he saw his grandmother recovering from a bad wound as a result of using gamat.
Dr Hassan’s preliminary tests showed that the gamat is a mild analgesic, meaning that is works as a pain killer and can suppress pain especially where there has been inflammation and injury. He also knew that the gamat is able to reproduce itself very quickly. He had cultured 200 pieces in a container and within three months, it had reproduced to 1,400 pieces. But what exactly were the mechanisms that enabled the gamat to heal wounds? What were the ingredients? He decided to carry out research on gamat, a work that would take him seven years before he finally and successfully concluded his research.
His breakthrough came when he was in Japan on a Hitachi fellowship research award. Research is team work as it involves multi-disciplinary knowledge and efforts, said Dr Hassan. With help from the Japanese, he managed to isolate a group of four amino acids that was responsible for giving rise to the analgesic effects of the gamat. He called the group of four amino acids Gamodulin. But he still did not know why they were able to heal wounds. At that time, he was supervising two Japanese PhD students and one of them was doing research on the cell culture of the umbilical cord. The student had made so many petri dishes of cell culture so one day, without thinking much about it, Dr Hassan added the Gamodulin extract to three petri dishes that the student had left over.
The next morning, the student called him excitedly as the cells in all three dishes had become densely populated. This showed that the amino acids may be stimulating growth. The Kyoto University tested his claims and found that Gamodulin can indeed rejuvenate cells including cells of the immune system, in less that 24 hours. Gamodulin has since being patented in Japan. And the rest as they say, is history.
Gamat Emas, the source of the healing compound Gamodulin used in Gamogen and other House of Healin products
The Gamodulin extract. originally found in the sea cucumber is now a key ingredient in Dr Hassan’s health supplement products and ointments.
Dr Hassan has successfully treated the wounds of diabetics and lepers, serious dermatitis and in one case, a benign tumour. He has countless testimonials of the efficacy of Gamodulin and is willing to be challenged on his claims. TV3 took up his challenge 1995 and brought to him four people who had gangrene and all four were subsequently healed of their wounds.
Because Gamodulin is not a chemical but is food, one can take as much as one like without side effects, said Dr Hassan.
It has anti-ageing activity, enhances the metabolic activity of the body and energises the consumer, he added.
One of his popular products is Gamogen formula which contains Gamodulin. According to Dr Hassan, Gamogen has been clinically proven to increase the body’s immune system, increase blood circulation, promotes vitality, natural skin appearances and the general well being. It also helps maximise the body’s ability to rejuvenate (replacing and getting rid of old and toxic in cells in the body and the reproductive system).
Under the AG2000 brandname, Dr Hassan has also developed a range of beauty and cosmetics products.
According to the doctor, it is the only layman-skin care system that employs micro-peeling technology for a more radiant skin complexion. Formulated with natural ingredients, the skin care beauty series employs four basic concepts: to cleanse, treat, nourish and to protect. Trials by cosmetic doctors in Asia including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Japan have proven the system to be effective, added Dr. Hassan.
Advice to consumers
Dr. Hassan who is also CEO of Healwell Pharmaceuticals Sdn Bhd, advises consumers to inquire about the manufacturer of the products. Are the experts behind the products? Should purchasers have complaints about the product, does the company stand behind it? Does the company provide a contact person to refer in cases of complaints?

Company considering nationwide swoop on imitation health products.
When SARIAH SHARIFF bought her monthly supplement in Negeri Sembilan last month, she noticed the product was very different from what she usually gets in Kuala Lumpur.
“On March 31, I purchased a bottle of Healin Gamogen at a store, Toko Pelangi Enterprise, in Bahau. Firstly, I found it odd I had to pay RM12O a bottle Its only RM118 when I
buy them at the Healin kiosk in Carrefour Wangsa Maju every month” she
The 54-year-old says when she inquired, the salesman said House of Healin, the company producing the Gamogen product, had issued a notice on a price increase. When SARIAH opened the Gamogen bottle at home, she compared the new bottle with an old one and saw disparities In the halal logo, Healin logo and the bottle as well.
The colour of the logo on the new bottle is lighter. The taste is also not the same like what I’m used to.The next day, SARIAH returned the product to the shop and told them she suspected it to be a fake.
The staff instantly opened up another bottle and saw the content was the same as I had purchased earlier, so he gave me a refund. 1 don’t blame the dealer as he claims the distributor had identified themselves as Healin staff when sending the products. I believe the dealer may have been cheated.
SARIAH hopes House of Healin will take swift action to avoid more consumers being cheated by such pirated products which do not provide the nutrition if should when consumed. Serious action must be taken against those who try to make a quick buck and tarnish the reputation of others
HEALWELL Pharmaceuticals Sdn Bhd’s Rozanna Rosli, says: “We thank SARIAH for her feedback. After investigating the matter, we confirm that the place where she bought the products is not an authorised House of Healin outlet.
“We have reported the matter to the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry office in Kuala Pilah.
“Since then, we have been informed that ministry officers have visited the said premises on April 5, seized all fake items in the shop and questioned the management.”
ROZANNA says from the questioning, authorities discovered the shop receives its products from a pharmacy in the State, and so they raided that premises as well.
“We have been informed by the ministry that if we want to pursue a nationwide check, we must get in touch with the ministry headquarters in Putrajaya.
“The management is discussing this matter and is considering serious action.”
She advised all customers, including SARIAH, who has been duly informed, to buy products only from authorized outlets to be guaranteed its originality.
*Product available at authorized House of Healin Dealers, Guardian, Watson and Vitacare only

Terdapat lebih kurang 1000 spesies mentimun laut di dunia. Terdapat 25 spesies di perairan Malaysia. Mentimun laut yang mempunyai nilai perubatan dikenali sebagai gamat atau timul laut emas (stichopus horrens). Gamat hidup dicelas-celah batu karang 4-40 kaki di dasar laut. Gamat merupakan bahan utama dalam rumusan ubat tradisional untuk menyembuhkan luka. Ia telah digunakan sejak 500 tahun dahulu dan sehingga kin masih digunakan oleh masyarakat kampung di Malaysia. Penggunaan secara meluas diamalkan untuk ibu-ibu selepas bersalin. Air gamat akan mempercepatkan proses penyembuhan luka dalaman, mengurangkan bengkak-bengkak dan bisa-bisa badan. Adalah dipercayai wanita sejak zaman Mahsuri di Pulau Langkawi telah menggunakan air gamat sebagai bahan kecantikan kulit.
Ia terkenal di kalangan pesakit yang baru saja menjalani pembedahan atau wanita yang baru melahirkan anak. Ia boleh diminum atau disapukan dalam kuantiti yang sedikit (10ml). Ia dapat menyembuhkan dalaman luka dengan cepat selain menjadikan kulit lebih lembut, tegang dan halus. Kajian saintifik menunjukkan gamat mempunyai kandungan protein, kondrotin dan serat elastin yang tinggi. Namun ramai yang masih lagi kurang peka terhadap kebersihan dalam penyediaan ekstraknya kerana kandungan garamnya yang tinggi, kewujudan beberapa bahan sampingan yang lain dan baunya yang hanyir, serta dos yang tidak menentu dan tidak sesuai untuk pemulihan tahap optimum. Penyediaan produk berasaskan gamat memerlukan cara pemprosesan dan penulenan yang betul, dan ketepatan dosnya juga penting untuk menghasilkan nilai terapeutik yang nyata
