Episode Summary

If you’ve recently heard of Carbon 60, you might be asking yourself if it’s really as beneficial as people say it is. How can one simple molecule support whole-body health? C60 is not a miracle cure – it’s a superior antioxidant and it’s backed by scientific research!

C60 – A Superior Antioxidant

C60 – A Superior Antioxidant

C60, also known as Buckminsterfullerene, or affectionately known as Bucky Balls, are cage-like molecules comprised of 60 carbon atoms that resemble microscopic soccer balls. The positive charge of C60 attracts negatively charged free electrons, also known as reactive oxidative species (ROS) or free radicals, and turns them into hydrogen, oxygen, or a number of other neutral substances that the body can then pass without harm to its cells.

Several factors, such as age, diet, lifestyle, and environment can contribute to a high oxidative burden on the body, often resulting in ill health and a reduced ability to fight illness. Carbon 60 works in concert with, and in place of, the body’s own antioxidants, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase, to effectively address oxidative stress.1 This supports cells across the body in returning to their primary functions rather than using up valuable time and energy fighting ROS.

What is Carbon 60 Good For?

C60 is good for a lot of things, but there is one main benefit that rules them all. Oxidative stress caused by free radicals is at the core of inflammation, and chronic inflammatory diseases account for more than 50% of deaths in the world today, including those related to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders. Neutralizing oxidative radicals directly supports the body’s ability to manage inflammation, which then has a cascade of benefits throughout the body.

Shares Ken Swartz, resident scientist and co-host of The C60 Show, “When you have chronic inflammation it suppresses the dopamine production in your body…There could be a lot of chronic inflammation you have in your body and you don’t even know it because it’s happening in a way that you really can’t feel.”

All other results are essentially the downstream effects of C60’s ability to address inflammation via the neutralization of oxidative stress. In addition to a myriad of other benefits, C60 supports mental clarity2, energy and stamina, healthy aging3, joint health4, hormone balance, and immune function.5

How Much C60 Should You Take?

The effective dose of carbon 60 depends on several variables, namely age, weight, and state of overall health. The good news is that there is no danger of toxicity6, but taking more than is needed may have a stimulatory effect similar to caffeine.

Most people require between 1-3 teaspoons (3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon) a day, taken in the morning. For example, a person under 45, below 160 pounds, and in good health will likely only require 1 tsp. a day. However, someone who is older, weighs more, or is looking to address either an acute or chronic illness may require up to a tablespoon daily in order to see results.

What Are the Side Effects of C60?

According to the Paris Baati study, C60 was found to be non-toxic in scientific studies at 10,000 times the normal dosage. While it is possible to feel overly stimulated by taking more carbon 60 than is necessary, studies using whole molecules of carbon 60 dissolved in oil have demonstrated no danger for human or animal consumption.
