Groundbreaking! This is how the reproductive and fertility vitamin (E) was discovered!

Bahnbrechend! So wurde das Fortpflanzungs- und Fruchtbarkeitsvitamin (E) – entdeckt! - HS Activa

A summary from the book: Healthy through vitamins by Dr. phil. Gerhard Venzmer (1935 Franckh'sche Verlagshandlung)

The birth of a groundbreaking discovery

In that distant time, in 1922, in the sun-kissed climes of California, three researchers - Evan, Bishop and Sure - came across a groundbreaking discovery. This discovery, although its full implications for human life only gradually came to light, greatly fascinated the world of biology and physiology.

Rats as the key to knowledge

Evan and his team had exposed rats to every diet imaginable when one day they came across a surprising observation: the lack of certain nutritional components led to a drastic impairment in the reproductive ability and fertility of these rodents.

Vitamin E and Reproduction: A Fascinating Connection

Vitamin E was also christened the “reproductive or fertility vitamin” because it was shown to be closely linked to reproductive processes, as ongoing experiments clearly demonstrated.

The rats deprived of vitamin E not only experienced a change in their hair coat, but also a dramatic impairment in their ability to reproduce. Interestingly, both males and females were affected by this reproductive vitamin deficiency in different ways.

In the male rats, the tissue of their gonads and testes degenerated, sperm production stopped, and the animals lost their ability to reproduce. On the other hand, vitamin E deficiency in pregnant females caused the fetus to die with alarming certainty in mid-gestation, and live offspring were never born.

What was amazing, however, was that giving the rodent mothers vitamin E put subsequent pregnancies back on track. This always resulted in the birth of live and healthy offspring.

But that wasn't all: this special vitamin also seemed to have a strong influence on the production and secretion of breast milk. The observations showed that the presence of vitamin E in mother's milk was crucial for the healthy development of the young.

The infants of mothers who received a vitamin-deficient diet after the birth of their babies grew more slowly and lagged behind in their overall development than the offspring of mothers who received sufficient vitamin E. The mortality rate among the former was also significantly higher.

Vitamin E and the queen bee

The fascinating revelations about the importance of vitamin E don't stop with the rats. Perhaps one of the most astonishing findings of modern vitamin research is the fact that bees, which are of great importance for the well-being of their colony, feed their queen with substances that are particularly rich in vitamins.

It made sense to also investigate the effectiveness of this vital substance, which plays such an important role in maintaining fertility and the development of healthy offspring, in humans. The incentive for this was particularly great because nature provides this vitamin in abundant quantities.

The rich sources of vitamin E

Vitamin E in fat-soluble form is extremely robust and stable, even the most stable of all living substances, and it is found widely in the plant kingdom, particularly in wheat, oats, corn, barley, rice, alfalfa, lettuce, watercress, spinach, cottonseed and others Plant.

In addition, vitamin E is found in significant amounts in mammalian flesh, glandular organs, and in smaller amounts in milk, butter, and egg yolks. However, it is most abundant in the oils of certain grain sprouts.

Note from HS-ACTIVA: Unfortunately, due to incorrectly prescribed fertilizers, the quality of fresh cow's milk and homemade butter is difficult to maintain today!

Tocopherol: A crucial breakthrough

In 1937, Evan even managed to obtain a crystalline body from enriched concentrates that had the properties of vitamin E to a particularly enhanced extent. This body was named "tocopherol", and its chemical composition was carefully studied. Recent developments now even enable the synthetic production of a tocopherol compound containing acetic acid, which is known as tocopherol acetate.

Vitamin E as a beacon of hope for mothers and children

In some cases, the administration of vitamin E has helped to support women who otherwise repeatedly lost hope of having healthy children due to premature births. The administration of vitamin E has also proven effective if breast milk runs out prematurely. In addition, it is reported that in some cases vitamin E can have a positive effect on sexual weakness and infertility in men in conjunction with usual hormonal treatment.

Recently, pure vitamin E has even proven to be a therapeutic option for certain muscle-wasting diseases of the nervous system that were previously considered incurable.

Although these findings do not yet allow a final judgment to be made about the importance of vitamin E for human biology, and in particular the specific need for this substance for humans cannot yet be considered proven, they undoubtedly encourage further investigation. Healthy mothers and vigorous children undoubtedly form the solid foundation on which the viability and development of a people rest. This research shows that the importance of vitamin E is broader than previously imagined.

Vitamin E in modern nutritional therapy

In modern representation, vitamin E is often portrayed as an antioxidant, which is true. This protection of the cells is used in orthomolecular nutrient therapy for various health problems such as rheumatism, osteoarthritis, chronic polyarthritis, blood formation disorders, arteriosclerosis and the protection of the heart muscle. However, it is important to note that animal studies have also shown that a deficiency of vitamin E can lead to fertility problems, which is why it is also called the fertility vitamin.

The ongoing development of understanding of vitamin E

It seems as if the importance of vitamin E continues to develop over the years and our knowledge of it is far from complete. Viktor Schauberger's wise advice to change your perspective by 180 degrees could be a valuable inspiration. In any case, this research shows that vitamin E plays a key role in biology and health and continues to accompany us on our path to a comprehensive understanding of life.
