Discovered in the 1985 by scientists Robert Curl, Harold Kroto, and Richard Smalley, C-60 is short for carbon 60, which is a type of fullerene. Fullerenes comprise a separate class of carbon allotropes with many synthesized modifications. * Typically sold mixed with olive oil, the health benefits of C60 are numerous and we’ll examine them in further detail.
Powerful Antioxidant-C60 has been proven to be a very potent antioxidant. It was tested on a Escherichia coli cell and was able to penetrate through biological membranes, conduct protons, and interact with free radicals. *
Potential Anti-Cancer Effects-C60 fullerenes were found to efficiently inhibit the growth of transplanted malignant tumors in groups of mice. *
Helps to Prevent Muscular Fatigue-A study conducted on the muscle tissue of rats concluded that C60 fullerene aqueous colloid solution (C60 FAS) was found to leads to a reduction in the recovery time of the muscle contraction force (after its complete exhaustion state) on the one hand, and an increase in the time of the muscle active work (endurance) until fatigue development on the other. *
Although studies seem very promising based on mice, there is still further research needed to be done in order to see how effective c60 will be for humans. None the less, it’s intriguing to see what further discoveries will be made to potentially uncover further benefits of c60, especially when it comes to regular, long term usage, As always, please consult with your primary healthcare provider before making any changes to your dietary, exercise and medical regimen.
