My dad took his first dose this morning, approximately 100ml of the liposomal Vitamin C solution that MegaMind posted.
He tolerated the first dose very well, no side effects.
After taking a nap, I woke up and thought of other cancer fighting products that could be better absorbed using this method of encapsulation.
I stumbled onto this article:
"Liposomal curcumin inhibits Lewis lung cancer growth primarily through inhibition of angiogenesis

Curcumin has been proven to effectively inhibit tumor growth by both targeting tumor cells and angiogenesis; however, poor water solubility limits
further clinical application. In the present study, we prepared water-soluble liposomal curcumin to investigate its anti-tumor effects and the
underlying mechanism. The MTT assay was used to test the anti-proliferative activities for the MS1 murine endothelial and LL/2 Lewis lung cancer cell
lines. Apoptosis and cell cycle arrest induced by liposomal curcumin were analysed by flow cytometry. Anti-angiogenic agents and the resulting
anti-tumor effects were investigated in a murine lung cancer model. Zebrafish were used to investigate the anti-angiogenic effect of liposomal
curcumin in the development of embryos. In vitro, liposomal curcumin inhibited the proliferation of MS1 cells and induced cell cycle arrest and
apoptosis. Notably, LL/2 cells showed less sensitivity to the liposomal curcumin in vitro. In vivo, the systemic administration of liposomal curcumin
resulted in significant inhibition of tumor growth. CD31 immunohistochemical analysis and alginate encapsulation assay revealed that angiogenesis was
decreased by liposomal curcumin treatment. Angiogenesis was also suppressed in the development of zebrafish. Liposomal curcumin showed potent
inhibitory activity against murine endothelial cells but not lung cancer cells. Liposomal curcumin treatment is capable of significantly inhibiting
tumor growth in vivo, a process that may depend primarily on its anti-angiogenic effects. Our study also indicates that liposomal curcumin may be
developed not only for cancer therapy, but also for the treatment of other angiogenesis-related diseases."
Liposomal curcumin is one product I would like to manufacture for my dad. If anyone can chime in with their opinion, I'd appreciate it. Megamind, if
you would not mind, I'd appreciate your help in concocting this solution.
Will reply with dosage numbers and such.
