What are the Benefits of C60
C60 has been around for a short time but it is already causing quite a storm in the market. This compound has been linked to dozens of mental and physical health benefits. The list of benefits that this molecule can achieve is so large that people are even beginning to question its credibility.
While we understand that it is normal for people to have suspicions on new compounds, we would like to point out that from our research, C60 does seem to be as good as advertised. It may not achieve everything that most vendors out there claim but it does have a lot to offer as we are going to see in this article.
You should know that the effects of C60 vary from one individual to another. The doses required to achieve certain effects will also differ from one person to another. In this review, we will discuss all the benefits that you can expect from C60. These effects are as report by multiple trials done on human cell cultures and lab rats which are also backed with anecdotal evidence.
But before we look at the benefits of taking C60, lets first take you through what this compound is and why it might just be the revolutionary treatment the world needs.
What is C60?
C60 (Carbon-60) is also known by other names such as C60 Fullerene, Buckminsterfullerene, and Buckyball. C60 is involved in so many activities but its recent application in biomedicine is the most interesting one yet. Carbon-60 was brought into the spotlight back in 2012 after the publication of the now famous “Baati Rat” Study.
The Baati Rat Study used rats to investigate how oral administration of C60 can help in prolonging the lifespan of rats. The results of this study were simply stunning. Not only did they show that Carbon-60 can prolong the lifespan of rats but it also showed that using the right derivatives of Carbon-60 will deliver all these results without any toxicity issues. The study also showed numerous other benefits that can come from regular supplementation of Carbon-60.
As you can expect, such a study is bound to raise eyebrows and indeed it did. After the Baati Rat study, other scientists started digging deeper to understand the full effects of C60 molecules. Most of these reports published online are based on lab results not involving humans but the one good thing common in all of them is the promising effects that the compound can have on our health.
Benefits of Using C60
- Powerful Antioxidant
One of the worst things about both industrialization and technology is that its emission of pollutants. Everywhere you go you are exposed to all sorts of pollutants in the form of pesticides, microwaves, pollution, electricity etc. We also have lifestyle choices that pollute our bodies which include smoking, alcohol, eating processed foods etc. These are just but examples of the many things that introduce pollutant rather free radicals into your body.
Once in your body, the free radicals will do a lot of damage to your cell membranes, DNA, proteins etc. Antioxidants introduce compounds that will either bind to the radicals and remove them from your body or prevent the formation of the free radicals in the first place.
The problem with standard antioxidants is they usually bind to free radicals on the basis of molecule-for-molecule. This means that you have to take a lot of the antioxidants to make sure that the amount of free radicals in the body is kept as low as possible. With Carbon-60, that problem is solved.
C60 has an extremely high oxidant capacity which allows them to bind to so many free radicals before they become inactive. In addition to that, Carbon-60 has a very solid structure that can never be affected by free radicals. This means that unless their capacity is maximized, the molecules will probably remain active until they leave the system.
One unique aspect of life that some people tend to overlook is that a prolonged life is not as good as a prolonged quality life. Yes, you may grow old and all that but if, for instance, you are living with neurodegenerative disorders which are very common among the old, then your quality of life is likely to be poor.
What if there was a way to prolong your lifespan while also ensuring that the quality of life that you will live will be much better? This is what Carbon-60 aims at. Supplementation of this molecule helps to fight free radicals and by doing so it improves the performance of your body cells. When your cells are functioning optimally so will your tissues and this means that different body organs will also be doing their job properly. Chances of diminished cognitive performance or developing other neurodegenerative disorders will be reduced significantly. Ultimately, you will enjoy a better and fulfilling life.
After the Baati Rat study, results showed that supplementing rats with actual C60 from Olive oil can prolong the lifespan of rats by up to 90%! Just how insane is that? Other studies used derivatives of Carbon-60 which had an impact of between 5-14% which is lower but stunning nonetheless.
Other than boosting the performance and health of cells, C60 is also believed to deliver longevity by maintaining the length of the telomere. That’s because some studies report that the shortening of telomere (which happens every time your cells divide) prevents cell division and this leads to aging. We need more studies to shed light on this particular phenomenon.
Several studies have also shown that C60 helps in protecting neurons from death and may even promote the growth of new neurons. With healthier neurons, C60 makes another stride towards ensuring that you are safe from Alzheimer’s diseases and other such disorders.
- Treating Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a very painful condition that can make movement a nightmare. The condition is very common among the elderly.
Recent trials have shown that C60 might be the most powerful treatment for the condition. It reduces inflammation in the bones and joints. This prevents your body from making your arthritis issue even worse. Instead, it facilitates faster recovery before your body gets it auto-inflammatory response back on track.
- Enhance Skin Health
One study published in the journal of Photochemistry and photobiology showed that topical application of Carbon-60 protects the skin from sunburn and UV damage.
The fact that C60 also keeps cells safe from free radicals also means that your skin cells will be kept healthy which directly translates to healthier and better-looking skin.
In 2014, a trial was done where C60 was applied twice per day for eight weeks on subjects who had an acne breakout. At the end of the study period, there was an 87.6% drop in the number of acne boils on the subjects.
C60 might just be the ultimate treatment you need for your acne breakout situation.
- Promotes Athletic Performance
This controversial benefit of C60 was reported in research published in the Journal of Nanobiotechnology. The report concluded that the use of C60 improved muscle endurance and also reduced recovery time.
Many people have also reported on different online platforms that they experienced better performance after using Carbon-60. While this effect may come as good news to fitness enthusiasts, it is a very serious issue for athletes who take part in competitive sports where doping is a serious issue.
- Boosts Immune Function
Water-soluble C60 enhances immune function in various ways. Other than protecting your cells from free radicals as discussed above, this compound will also stimulate the production of lymphocytes or white blood cells and other cytokines like TNF-alpha. These will improve your body’s ability to fight off infections.
You will also enjoy a life free from allergies because Carbon-60 will reduce the levels of IgE’s, histamine and certain inflammatory compounds linked to allergic reactions.
Are there any side effects of using C60?
After discussing the benefits of Carbon-60, it is only fair that we also inform you of the possible side effects of the compound.
The bad news is that since there are limited studies on this compound and its uses on humans, it is difficult for us to understand its potential negative reactions. The good news is that there’s already quite a number of people using the compound and we didn’t come across any reports of serious side effects. Also, most studies show that if one uses the right derivatives of Carbon-60 appropriately, then chances of adverse reactions are almost nil.
On the other hand, certain derivatives of Carbon-60 can be very toxic to the body. In addition to that, we came across minor issues of eye and skin irritation reported by a few users.
What’s the appropriate dose for C60?
There is no published dose that’s guaranteed to work while also keeping the user safe. However, most people find buckyball beneficial at 5ml per day.
