Studies show that C60 acts as a super anti-oxidant, helping the body's cells to repair. It has a slight positive +2 charge that attracts negatively charged oxidative free-radicals and neutralizes them. Each C60 neutralizes large numbers oxidizing free-radicals every second. This occurs without the C60 molecule being changed or losing reductive potency. C60 rapidly resets and keeps on working. When the cells of the body are relieved of an existing free-radical oxidative burden, they can once again function at natural peak efficiency and begin repair.
Increased energy, physical and mental performance, quicker recovery from physical exertion/exercise, and virility are just some of the reported benefits of C60. Because everyone's physiology is different it is impossible to predict the effects of C60.
NOTE: Carbon 60 has not been evaluated by the FDA.
Research: We recommend anyone considering C60 to do their own research. Here are a few links regarding health benefits to help you get started.
C60 is a powerful antioxidant that has effects on unsaturated fats. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20338159
C60 removes superoxide, which is a toxic by-product of cellular metabolism that contributes to tissue injury in many human diseases. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15451059
A review of scientific research has shown that C60 has longevity and antioxidant effects given its scavenging capacity for reactive oxygen species https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27659261
The proposed mechanism indicates that C60 has the ability to acquire positive charge by absorbing protons (positively charged hydrogen atoms) and this complex could enter the mitochondria, leading to a decrease in reactive oxygen species production. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/2013/821498/
The above studies use a derivative of C60 while using actual C60 in olive oil can get 90% increase in lifespan for rats (using a dose of 1.7 mg/kg of body weight twice a month). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22498298
Carboxyl C60 prevents nerve cells from dying by either dehydration or amyloid-beta (causes Alzheimer’s) and allowed mice to live 8 days longer in a 120 day lifetime. http://www.pnas.org/content/94/17/9434.full
Protection Against Free Radicals
Free radicals can react with almost any molecule in your body and potentially damage it before leaving the molecule and going to the next one. An antioxidant like C60 (carboxyl) prevents age-related decline in mice.
Carboxy C60 is significantly better than ubiquinone, preventing fat peroxidation and iron-induced oxidation in cells. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11331193
Also, malonyl-C60 inhibits nitric oxide synthase, a creator of nitric oxide which is a free radical in test-tubes. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10860539
By inhibiting IL-1, matrix metalloproteinases, and TNF-alpha, hydroxyl-C60 prevents inflammation in mice. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3841235/
When the right kind of photons work with hydroxy C60 it can deactivate mosquito viruses. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21883040
Nerves can die from being fired too often and worked too hard. Hydroxyl C60 protects nerves from dying due to overwork in cell cultures. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9173920
Further, water-soluble C60 prevents stress-induced damage and the breakdown of bones. It also prevents loss of bone cells and prevents bone inflammation in rabbits. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17907184
Improves Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome
The C60 in some oils is a powerful antioxidant and can prevent fat cells from growing in size. It also prevents cells from increasing in number and prevent insulin resistance in cells. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17907184
Also, malonyl C60 killed and helped white blood cells to kill Group A Streptococcus (strep throat, skin infections, toxic shock syndrome). http://aac.asm.org/content/45/6/1788.full
Computer simulations have shown that C60 has the ability the pass through lipid membranes, enter the cell, and alter its functions. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18654548
Some C60 derivatives that are produced in the body are water soluble and apparently non-toxic below concentrations of 1 mg/mL. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0928493106002268
