Nano-technology Liposomes Deliver Supplements Directly to the Cells!
M.D.Anderson is doing clinical trials with Nano-Curcumin and Resveratrol.
I know that a large portion of the oral supplements I take pass through my body and are excreted into my urine.
I also know that laboratory studies using vitamins and herbs to stop the growth of cancer cells have been successful when they are administered directly to the cells.
Vitamin C (like Curcumin and Resveratrol) is very difficult for the body to absorb when taken orally. This is particularly true when Vitamin C is taken in large oral doses. Until the advent of Liposomal Vitamin C, the only efficient method of getting therapeutic levels of Vitamin C into the blood stream was intravenously. This required administration and attendance by a physician or nurse practitioner.
Liposomal supplements are a new breed of supplements which are able to deliver Vitamins and Herbs directly to the cellular level, unlike any other traditional pill or liquid form.
Nano-technology refers to creating micro particles of the active material one wishes to coat with liposomes - in this case Curcumin, Vitamin C, Glutathione, CoQ10, and Resveratrol. This requires expensive equipment and considerable time to complete. These micro particles are then inserted into special fat soluble materials resembling micro bubbles just a few millionths of an inch in diameter which are capable of sliding through the gut lining without being digested. The “bubbles” are now in the blood stream and are offered to the cells of the body as needed. As with the gut wall, the cell wall loves liposomes because they are made up of similar material (phosphytidal choline, lecithin, phosphytidal serine, CLA, etc) and the enclosed Anti-Cancer Supplement is delivered directly into the cell, while the liposomes are used by the cell wall or for other functions within the cell.
Doctors in Germany and other areas of Europe are now using liposomal encapsulated anti-cancer drugs as well as liposomal encapsulated anti-cancer supplements. M.D. Anderson is doing clinical trials with Nano-Curcumin and Nano-Resveratrol. Here's the thing - "Patients must have an advanced malignancy that has either failed one or more prior therapies, or for which there is no established standard of care therapy that improves survival by at least 3 months." In other words, if they can use Chemo or Radiation to extend your life 3 months, you can't be part of the trial. So they are testing these supplements on very sick individuals. Why not conduct a trial testing these Nano-technology Liposomals on people who have earlier stages of cancer to see if they can prevent metastases?
I don't need to wait for a clinical trial. I'm getting the latest technology into my body right away! I'm encouraging my husband to use it, too, as a preventative.
I felt that it was time to re-evaluate my supplements, and after learning about the liposomal encapsulated Vitamin C and Curcumin, I made the following changes:
I'm now taking 2 Tablespoons a day of Liposomal CAN-HELP Complex Nutritional Support Formula, with Liposomal Vitamin C, Glutathione, Resveratrol, Curcumin, CoQ10 and Vitamins B1, B6, B12 & Folic Acid, designed to provide nutritional support for the cancer patient.
I'm taking 1 Tablespoon a day of Liposomal Curcumin which is proven to stop angiogenesis- blood vessels that help cancer grow. "When rats with mammary cancer were given 200mg/kg of Curcumin each day for just five days, the tumors were significantly inhibited. This would mean that a 165 pound female would have to ingest 15,000 mg of Curcumin on a daily basis - unless you were using Liposomal Curcumin, then you would only need about 1,200 mg. Quite a difference! Just four teaspoonfuls of the Liposomal Curcumin would give you that amount!"
I'm taking 1 Tablespoon a day of Liposomal Resveratrol. “Resveratrol can inhibit all three stages of chemical carcinogenesis - tumor initiation, promotion and progression.” This study was later published in the medical journal Lancet.
Here are the other things I continue to take:
Bio-identical Hormones made at a compounding pharmacy and prescribed by my Naturopath, Dr. Mazza. I take Estrodial, Progesterone and DHEA. She monitors my blood and saliva to check my balance. (Update - I'm only using a tiny bit of Estrodial 2x a week.)
New Chapter whole food Calcium (2 tabs/ 3x a day)
Carlson's Liquid Vitamin D-3 (8 drops)
Nature's Way DIM-plus (1 per day)
Natural Factors Liquid Biosil Silica (6 drops)
Integrative Therapeutics Lipotropic Complex (methylation support) (3 caps/ 2x a day)
Barlean's High Lignan Flax Seed Oil (1 Tbsp.)
Carlson's Norwegian Fish Oil (1 Tbsp.).
I get the best prices at Vitacost.com.

In addition to taking these liposomal supplements, I use guided imagery every day to reduce the stress hormones that suppress the immune system. It helps me to calm my nerves and activate the mind-body healing connection.

Please leave a comment if you have a supplement that has made a difference in your treatment of cancer. Blessings to you! Jeannie
