What Is C60

Carbon 60 (C-60) is a Carbon structure known as Fullerene – after Bucky Fuller; based on the Buckminster Fuller Geodesic Dome design (nicknamed Buckyballs). C-60 is a molecule is shaped similar to a soccer ball; it is a molecule in the shape of a spherical ball, made of 60 carbon atoms (C60) with both hexagon and pentagon formations. C-60 is found in nature all over the planet as well as in space, as the result of the residuals of a lightning strike typically in soot or other carbon-based ash in very small amounts as well as man made within laboratories; but this is a labor intensive & expensive process.

Research shows it is 100 times more effective in removing free radicals than Vitamin E and 172 times more effective than Vitamin C. The C-60 atoms are chemically inert and the spherical ball shape forms a perfectly symmetrical structure, thus allowing unstable molecules, such as free radicals, to adhere to the C-60 molecules.

Health Benefits Of C60

CarbonShield60 olive oil has been scientifically proven to reduce the effects of oxidation and aging, resulting in a longer lifespan for mammals.

Clinical Research
In 2011, Fathi Moussa, a French scientist, led a team of researchers in a toxicity study on the C60 fullerene mixed with olive oil. Scientists discovered that C60 improved the lifespan of the rats. The C60 mixture actually helped them live 95% longer (that is nearly twice their normal lifespan) — the greatest breakthrough in extending the life of animals ever. Can you imagine doubling your lifespan by halving your aging?

Scientists attributed the results to C60's antioxidant properties as well as to its ability to biodistribute: to cross the cell membrane and distribute throughout living tissues. Our CarbonShield60 is at the maximum fullerene concentration.

Corrigendum to "The prolongation of the lifespan of rats by repeated oral
administration of [60]fullerene" [Biomaterials 33 (2012) 4936- 4946]

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.
