Episode Summary

You may have heard about the astounding benefits of taking C60, but like most supplements, not all products are created equally. What brand you choose, how you take it and complementary habits are all contributing factors to the effectiveness of this 60 carbon molecule. Want to learn how to maximize the countless benefits of C60? Find out the most common mistakes below.

1. Not Buying a Quality Product

Unfortunately, because Carbon 60 oil is becoming increasingly popular, and supplement products are not always regulated well, there are inferior C60 products on the market. Though it may not seem like a lot, there is a big difference between C60 that is 99.99% pure and C60 labeled 99.95% or less. Besides purity level, the purification process is also important to consider.  The cleanest method of purifying C60 is the process of sublimation, which is similar to an evaporation process and uses no toxic chemicals or solvents. Cheaper Carbon 60 products often use the solvent, or “oven-baked,” method, which retains toxins in the final product and accounts for the lower concentration of actual C60 molecules.

Real C60 is purple in color and is only viable to the body as whole molecules dissolved in oil. Look for organic, shelf-stable oils that utilize the maximum concentration of C60 possible, and have a purple or purplish color, depending upon the carrier oil. (C60 will never look black and is not the same as activated charcoal!)

2. Thinking C60 is a Replacement for Good Nutrition and Healthy Choices

C60 is Not a Replacement for Good Nutrition and Healthy Choices

C60 doesn’t cure anything; it lifts the oxidative burden so the body can heal itself. Explains Ken Swartz, scientist, and co-host of The C60 Show, “C60 is a selective antioxidant. It only goes after high energy oxidative radicals like super oxygen, hydroxyl radicals, and peroxynitrite, but it doesn’t interfere with signaling molecules.” This means that C60 does an excellent job of targeting and neutralizing free radicals, but you still need to supply your body with vital nutrients via a healthy diet and supplementation. “C60 will not interact with your supplements or nutrients or anything that you’re taking,” Ken goes on to say. So keep drinking your green smoothies along with taking C60. Your body will thank you!

3. Not Sticking with It

C60 should be taken daily in the morning at the proper dose. Taking it inconsistently, or stopping after a few days or weeks, will interfere with the full range of benefits C60 can provide.

4. Not Storing Your C60 Properly

Bottles of C60 should be kept in a cool (not cold), dark place, such as a cabinet away from the stove. Minimal light and heat will keep the oil stable and C60 viable for a long time. Storing C60 oil in glass amber bottles is best.

5. Not Finding the Correct Dosage

Most adults benefit from taking between 1-3 teaspoons of C60 daily. Contributing factors include age, weight, and general health. For example, a person of average weight in good health in their 40’s might require only one teaspoon, while someone older and/or heavier might do well with a higher dose. Those who are targeting acute health issues may also want to increase their dosage a bit until they return to health. “C60 has no toxicity at any level. They’ve done animal studies and they’ve given them 10,000x what a person might be taking and it had no toxic effect,” shares Ken.

6. Failing to Use It Properly

C60 should be taken in the morning, ideally on an empty stomach for optimum absorption. Some people find they like to chase it with a little water, or even mix C60 Purple Power into their coffee. It is not recommended to cook with C60 oils, especially at high heat, as this may cause rancidity.

7. They Stop Taking Medications and Supplements

C60 cannot replace a good diet and nutrition, nor is it advisable to alter a medication regimen without the advice of a medical expert.

8. They Don’t Seek Out Proper Research Studies

It’s true that there are studies claiming that Carbon 60 is not fit for consumption. However, those studies used nanoparticles of C60. Scientific research using whole molecules of C60 proved not only to be safe in test animals but actually benefitted their health and increased their lifespan by 90%.1

99.99% pure C60 Purple Power, made with organic, naturally anti-inflammatory oils promotes health in the body and mind. To learn more about ways to maximize the benefits of C60 Purple Power, watch The C60 Show on YouTube or listen on Apple Podcasts.


“I started taking C60 Purple Power one week ago. Normally I don’t respond well at all to these types of products, but wow, has this one been different. I developed a bad case of shingles on my head a month ago and I ended up with a migraine for a month. It was pure torture. I was still having bad headaches when I started taking C60, and within two days my headaches were mild. On my third day of taking it, I went on a 35-mile bike ride and man, that felt good! It’s been just a week so far and my nerve pain has also decreased. I didn’t think I should do a review because I haven’t been on it that long, but the results are amazing!” – Susan
