What is C60?
C60 could be the most amazing chemistry discovery of the late 20th Century. “C60” is short for Carbon 60, a naturally occurring molecule comprised of 60 carbon atoms forming something that looks like a hollow soccer ball. The scientific name for C60 is Buckminsterfullerene and it is the only molecule of a single element to form a spherical cage. It has been extensively explored in biomedical research due to its unique structure and unparalleled physicochemical properties. C60 is characterized as a “free radical sponge” with an antioxidant efficacy several hundred-fold higher than conventional antioxidants.R
The Discovery of C60
The molecule was originally hypothesized to exist by Buckminster Fuller. In 1979, he predicted the existence of the C60 Carbon Molecule and said it would be used in medicine in the future. In 1985, C60 was discovered by 3 scientists: Robert Curl, Harold Kroto, and Richard Smalley. They named the molecule in his honor “Buckminsterfullerene.” They also referred to it as a “buckyball.” In 1996, they were awarded a Nobel Prize for the co-discovery of C60.
C60 is Found in Nature
Not only can Carbon 60 be found in nature, but it also precedes life on Earth. It is produced in the atmospheres of giant red stars. Trace amounts can be found on Earth at meteor impacts and near lightning strikes. Tiny amounts can even be found in the burnt wicks of candles, at around 0.25%. While C60 is found in nature and has existed for a very long time, high purity C60 must be manufactured and refined.
The Most Powerful Antioxidant Yet Known?
C60 may be the most powerful antioxidant yet known. It is a Universal Antioxidant and can perform the antioxidant action of Superoxide DismutaseR, Glutathione, Catalase, and COQ10.R These antioxidants play an important role in energy production in the cell. Not only can C60 help maximize the efficiency of the cells in producing energy, but it may also provide cellular protection against many toxic environmental factors.R
Health Benefits of C60
C60 helps to reduce inflammation in the body by neutralizing oxidative radicals.R C60 works at the cellular level by lifting the oxidative burden, allowing the mitochondria and other cellular processes to function normally.R C60 may help to maximize the efficiency of cells in the production of energy, hormones, and cellular metabolism.

In 2014, Ken Swartz, aka “Ken the Scientist” was leading a research laboratory, working on the MOXY fusion reactor. He was looking for ways to maximize the protection of the research team against potential radiation hazards during experimentation. Through his research, he learned about C60 and its radiation protectant properties. He and his team used C60 as an added radiation protectant through the successful completion of the MOXY research project.
C60 had significantly improved Ken’s general health during experimentation, so he continued to use C60 afterward. During an annual checkup at his eye doctor, he and his optometrist were quite surprised to discover his dry macular degeneration had disappeared. His optometrist over the course of his many decades of practice had never seen this occur. Over time, C60 also helped heal nerve damage he had incurred from years of dirt biking and other athletic activities. He then started to share the product with friends, family and various health practitioners in the Denver/Boulder, CO metro area.
In 2016, C60purplepower.com was launched. Ken has been a regular guest on various internet shows and is the co-host of The C60 Show (check out The C60 Show podcast), where he and co-host, Sierra Samuel, discuss various health and wellness topics.
In early 2019, C60purplepower.com expanded its platform with Anchorslight Technologies and is actively working to provide more products, greater value and improved service experience to its customers.
