Vitamin A is accepted as an agent of great use for the major epithelial cancers as well as for epidermis carcinomas, chronic leukaemia and transitional cells.
The first formal studies of the possible anti-tumour effects of vitamin A were initiated in Germany, by investigators of Mugos Laboratories in Munich. It was a proven fact that lung cancer in Norwegian sailors was less common than in other groups, even though they smoked since childhood. Logic indicated that it had to be the opposite. After studying this phenomenon, it was discovered that they ate abundant quantities of raw fish liver, high in vitamin A, since childhood. The logical conclusion was that high doses of such a vitamin prevented the growth of lung cancer in heavy smokers. But it was also found that high doses of vitamin A were toxic and could cause adverse reactions.
The main focus was to find out how to administer enough vitamin A to observe preventive or healing effects without injuring the liver. The solution was found when one investigator discovered that unprocessed milk had the vitamin, and children who were breast-fed never experienced toxic effects. Nature had the solution by including vitamin A in milk in the form of micro-emulsification.
Mugos investigators proceeded to prepare a variety of emulsified concentrations, formulating their famous High Concentration A-Mulsin. One drop contains 12,000 units. They were able to administer over a million units per day in progressive doses without producing hepatic toxicity. The explanation is that, in emulsified form, vitamin A is absorbed directly into the lymphatic system without going through the liver in high quantities. Having solved the toxicity problem, it was possible to test the product in high doses. It was demonstrated that emulsified vitamin A has the following effects:
- In normal doses, it protects epithelium and vision.
- In doses of 100,000 to 300,000 units per day, it works as a potent immune stimulant.
- In doses of 500,000 to 1,000,000 units per day, it works as a potent anti-tumour agent, especially in epidermis and transitional carcinomas.
- Manufacturers’ recommended dosage is 4 drops of A & E emulsified, up to two/three times a day under the tongue, or according to your physician
