People with an interest in health enhancement and longevity research have been interested in C60 supplements for quite some time. One reason is that C60 fullerene’s anti-oxidative ability was found to be 172 times more effective than vitamin C in a recent comparison? It’s true! Read on below to learn more.

What’s a C60 fullerene?

fullerene is a molecule of carbon in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, tube, and many other shapes. Spherical fullerenes, also referred to as Buckminster fullerenes or buckyballs, resemble the balls used in association football. Cylindrical fullerenes are also called carbon nanotubes (buckytubes).

Often abbreviated as C60, Carbon 60 Fullerenes already have a wide variety of uses and applications in many different fields. Research on Carbon 60 Fullerenes has uncovered compelling data regarding the potential use of C60 for a variety applications in various fields:

  • biomedical
  • chemical research
  • nanotechnology
  • health and medicine
  • electronics development

Carbon 60 powder is a black powder that comes in various purities.  We have been selling the C60 powder since 1991 to research institutions around the world.

We also sell the very-popular C60 Olive Oil as the nation’s largest manufacturer and supplier of scientific grade Carbon 60.

Where do Carbon 60 Fullerenes come from?

Carbon 60 is very unique – in fact, no useful quantities exist in nature. It was discovered in 1985 by Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Richard Smalley at Rice University.

Before that, carbon only had two allotropic forms in nature: diamond and  graphite. However, since the 1985 discovery of C60, carbon has been found in many additional forms, such as:

  • sphere
  • tube
  • single atomic layer (graphite)

Powerful Antioxidant Properties

Carbon 60 fullerenes are well known for their high antioxidant properties. In a recent study, the administration of C60 Olive Oil was actually shown to double the average lifespan of rats!

Various studies have confirmed these claims, and scientists are continuing to further our research on fullerenes and their properties. The potential for C60 is great in a multitude of fields including health, biomedical, and more.

An Antioxidant Orders of Magnitude Stronger than Vitamin C

As previously mentioned, in a recent study, researchers discovered that the antioxidant properties of C60 fullerenes were 172 times more effective than Vitamin C!

They discovered this through the β-carotene discoloring method.

What’s the β-carotene discoloration method?

Researchers use the β-carotene discoloration method to evaluate antioxidant capacity of substances, like fullerenes.

Here’s how it works:

  • β-carotene is given various active oxygen sources.
  • It initially exhibits a yellow coloring in an aqueous solution, but the active oxygen sources discolor it.
  • Then, an antioxidant is added to the test group.
  • This helps researchers evaluate the antioxidant capacity based on the extent to which the discoloration rate can be suppressed.

This is how researchers discovered just how powerful C60 fullerenes are in comparison to vitamin C.

Even more interesting, when compared to vitamin C and vitamin E, C60 fullerenes were found to exhibit higher antioxidant capacity under all oxidation conditions (the active oxygen sources):

  1. Lipid radicals
  2. Hydrogen peroxide
  3. Superoxide radicals

It also showed high antioxidant capacity against active oxygen brought on by ultraviolet radiation.
