The strong gravity contribution to the nucleonic axial-vector form factor is evaluated in the nonrelativistic limit and in the approximation of exactSU3 symmetry. It is suggested also that the anomalous experimental results on the value of the axial coupling constant, in very light nuclei, may be explained as being an effect due to strong gravitational interactions.
