C60 the next big thing for health?

What Is C60?

Researchers first discovered the C60 molecule in 1985 and were surprised by its properties including its shape (think of a sphere or soccer ball). C60 was found to be an extremely stable molecule that can handle high temperatures and pressure with ease. (1)

The researchers who discovered C60 were awarded a Nobel Prize in 1996. Since then further research has revealed C60’s efficiency at cleaning up free radicals, which cause oxidative damage in the body. However the major breakthrough happened in 2011 where researcher Fathi Moussa and his team initially set out on their research to test for potential toxicity in C60. (2)

To the contrary, when all was said and done, the study’s results actually led Moussa to conclude that C60 is one of the least toxic substances known to man.

Ok, so it is non-toxic, so? Well it was shown to not only does it appear to be non-toxic. It seems to be anti-toxic.

 

Moussa and his team did an experiment on 3 groups of rats, separating them into:

1. Having daily doses of C60 Olive Oil
2. Having just plain water.
3. Having olive oil.

By the end of the study, all of the water-fed rats were dead and of the olive oil group, 67% were dead. Astoundingly, 100% of the C60 Olive Oil-fed rats were still alive.

And the added bonus!? Well it was shown that the C60-fed rats saw their natural lifespans increased by as much as 95%. That is nearly double!

Please note we do not advocate animal testing however this study speaks for itself and is worth mentioning as it was the first study to create the potential health improving use of C60.

 

 

So How Does C60 Works?

C60’s power primarily lies in its antioxidant properties.

Research has shown that a lot of what we consider “aging” and “age-related damage” is the work of free radicals. C60 penetrates deep into the body’s cells, allowing its antioxidant capabilities to eradicate free radicals. (3)

Free radicals can enter your body from any number of sources. This includes everything from bad food, medicines, pollution in your environment to chemicals in cigarettes and pesticides.

A healthy diet can also give your body powerful antioxidants to combat free radical damage. However, current research suggests that there may be no other substance we know of that is as powerful at this than C60.

 

Ok… So Are You Saying I Can Double My Lifespan?

Well it would be amazing if that was the case however, this study was performed on rats and hasn’t been research to prove the same effectiveness on humans. However there’s a lot more to growing old than just free radical damage. Everyone is predisposed to different ailments and conditions, so there’s absolutely no guarantee of anything.

Further, there have been no comprehensive studies looking into C60’s potential life-extending properties in humans. We simply don’t have the data to say, one way or another, if it will increase your life or not.

That said, there still is plenty of research that suggests you may want to consider taking a C60 supplement. This research suggests it can impart the following tremendous effects:

  • Reduced inflammation, especially in arthritis patients (4)
  • Potential prevention of osteoarthritis (5)
  • Reduced obesity and metabolic syndrome symptoms (heart disease, stroke, diabetes) (6)
  • Destruction of bacteria (7)
  • Protection against UV damage (8)

 

These benefits are all thanks to C60’s helpful antioxidant capabilities. With effects like the ones above, it’s no wonder C60 is becoming such a hot topic in the supplement market.

In fact, the market likely has plenty of room to grow. One concern regarding this, however, is the limited supply of quality C60.

Precautions

As with any supplement, you should be sure to speak with a medical professional before taking C60.

As mentioned earlier, researchers believe C60 is one of the least toxic compounds on the planet. However, research still hasn’t told us what might happen regarding C60 consumption in different scenarios, such as when mixed with water or taken in large, unfiltered quantities.

Because C60 is such a powerful detoxifying agent, it is possible that it might neutralize some forms of medication in your body. This is why it’s extra important to consult with your doctor before taking it, as you should with any non-prescribed supplement.

The original study that inspired global excitement about the use of Carbon 60 Olive Oil: Almost Double Lifespan.

The Prolongation of the Lifespan of Rats by Repeated Oral Administration of [60]Fullerene

(also known as The University of Paris Study or The Baati Study)

 “Abstract: Countless studies showed that [60]fullerene (C60) and derivatives could have many potential biomedical applications. However, while several independent research groups showed that C60 has no acute or sub-acute toxicity in various experimental models, more than 25 years after its discovery the in vivo fate and the chronic effects of this fullerene remain unknown. If the potential of C60 and derivatives in the biomedical field have to be fulfilled these issues must be addressed. Here we show that oral administration of C60 dissolved in olive oil (0.8 mg/ml) at reiterated doses (1.7 mg/kg of body weight) to rats not only does not entail chronic toxicity but it almost doubles their lifespan. The effects of C60-olive oil solutions in an experimental model of CCl4 intoxication in rat strongly suggest that the effect on lifespan is mainly due to the attenuation of age-associated increases in oxidative stress. Pharmacokinetic studies show that dissolved C60 is absorbed by the gastro-intestinal tract and eliminated in a few tens of hours. These results of importance in the fields of medicine and toxicology should open the way for the many possible -and waited for- biomedical applications of C60 including cancer therapy, neurodegenerative disorders, and ageing.”

C60 and how it works as an anti-inflammatory antioxidant

The C60 Buckyball molecule is an electron reservoir that neutralises free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have one or more electrons too few or too many, and they will damage any biological molecule they come in contact with. The Buckminster-fullerene C60 molecule can accept several electrons in case of a free radical with an electron surplus, and donate several electrons in case of a free radical with an electron deficit. C60 thus is an incredibly effective antioxidant, not in the least because it does not get degraded or become unstable by accepting or donating electrons.

The olive oil of the lipofullerene C60 binds the C60 into the cell layers, also those of the mitochondria, the energy factories in the cell. Hence the cells and mitochondria get an integrated nano-scale antioxidant system implanted into their cell walls. This is totally unique. No other antioxidant supplement can be reused indefinitely. No other antioxidant supplement can both accept and donate electrons, let alone multiple electrons. No other antioxidant supplement sits for weeks in the lipid bilayers, exactly where it is needed the most – except for C60, which can do all these things.

One way C60 functions as an antioxidant, is to neutralize Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) by accepting an electron from them. The unique aspect of C60 is that accepting an electron does not alter the structure of the C60 molecule, effectively infinitely recycling it. C60 can accept or donate many electrons (it works as an electron reservoir), so it is an incredibly powerful antioxidant in the cell walls (270 x better than vit. C, even disregarding the recycling effect!), constantly neutralizing damaging free radicals that reach the cells or mitochondria.

Countless studies have shown that C60 fullerene could have many potential biomedical applications. Several independent research groups showed that C60 has no acute or sub-acute toxicity in various experimental models. Oral administration of C60 dissolved in olive oil (0.8 mg/ml) at repeated doses (1.7 mg/kg of body weight) to rats not only Does Not cause chronic toxicity but it almost Doubles Their Natural Lifespan.

The effects of C60-olive oil solutions in an experimental model of CCl4 intoxication in rat strongly suggest that the effect on lifespan is mainly due to the reduction of age-associated increases in oxidative stress.

Pharmacokinetic studies show that dissolved C60 is absorbed by the gastro-intestinal tract and eliminated in 20 to 30 hours. Carbon 60 fullerene can distribute more or less evenly in the organism and penetrate in various tissues and organs. It is also well absorbed through the skin.

These results of importance in the fields of medicine and toxicology should open the way for the many possible – and waited for – biomedical applications of C60 including as an adjunct in cancer therapy, neurodegenerative disorders, and ageing.

Carbon 60 (C60 – Lipofullerene) is Totally Non-Toxic and has in fact been shown to have “Negative Toxicity”.  Its use has demonstrated stronger growth and longer life in several trials on lower as well as higher organisms.

The original study by done by Tarek Baati and his research team in 2011, showed that Carbon 60 almost doubled the normal lifespan of rats. When the last rat in the control group had died, all rats in the C60-olive oil group were still alive and well – they went on to live for an average of two more years!

Bulletproof + Carbon 60 with your coffee!

“The 99.99% Carbon 60 gives me a lots more energy, can I still enjoy my morning coffee with it?”

Yes, and especially if you combine it with Carbon 60.

At the C60 ‘headquarters’ we have experienced this to be true ourselves, first hand! As a small company, with just a few employees, we’ve been able to accomplish much more than we ever imagined. With no staff increase we have kept up with the ever increasing amount of orders coming in and our expansion overseas.

But enough about us…

Here are some kind words from a few of one of our customers who report experiencing the same benefits….

“When I started combining C60 MCT with coffee, I straight away felt a huge difference in my energy levels and mental clarity. I noticed especially that my memory was getting very sharp, and I did not have a dip anymore in the afternoon, just with 1 coffee in the morning. I rate the C60 from the C60olive website very high because their saturation level is above the average in the market and their purity is a whopping 99.99%.”

-Adam

What is the enhanced benefit of putting C60 Premium MCT in your coffee?

Apart from the effects of C60, the MCT deliver a bigger, longer lasting absorption of caffeine. So you won’t get this sudden rush and drop effect of coffee.

We recommend using our C60 in premium MCT with C8 and C10 And Orangutan friendly!!

Coffee is not for every constitution.

C60 and Muscle fatigue

Study: C60 fullerene as promising therapeutic agent for correcting and preventing skeletal muscle fatigue

The use of C60FAS, even at a low therapeutic dose (0.1–0.15 mg/kg) leads to a reduction in the recovery time of the muscle contraction force (after its complete exhaustion state) on the one hand, and an increase in the time of the muscle active work (endurance) until fatigue development on the other. This result illustrates the effect of C60FAS, along with other possible mechanisms, on prooxidant-antioxidant homeostasis in the muscle tissue of rats.

C60 Antioxidant Action- Possible Mechanisms of Fullerene

Biomed Research InternationalPublished online 2013 Oct 8. 
V. A. Chistyakov, Yu. O. Smirnova, E. V. Prazdnova, and A. V. Soldatov 

 “Abstract: Novel mechanism of antioxidant activity of buckminsterfullerene C60 based on protons absorbing and mild uncoupling of mitochondrial respiration and phosphorylation was postulated. In the present study we confirm this hypothesis using computer modeling based on Density Functional Theory. Fullerene’s geroprotective activity is sufficiently higher than those of the most powerful reactive oxygen species scavengers. We propose here that C60 has an ability to acquire positive charge by absorbing inside several protons and this complex could penetrate into mitochondria. Such a process allows for mild uncoupling of respiration and phosphorylation. This, in turn, leads to the decrease in ROS production.”
