Benefits of C60

The benefits of C60 are of intrigue to those who seeking to optimise their wellbeing. C60 also referred to as Carbon 60, Buckminsterfullerene or ‘Buckyball’ is an extraordinary molecule consisting of 60 carbon atoms organised in a spherical shape.  

Although discovered in 1985, C60 has relatively recently caught the attention of researchers when the ‘Baati rat study’ in 2012 found Carbon 60 in Olive Oil to approximately double the life span of rats [1]. 

Research has shown that when Carbon 60 enters the body, it interacts with cells and biological systems in several intriguing ways: 

Antioxidant Properties: C60 acts as a powerful antioxidant, scavenging free radicals that can lead to oxidative stress. Studies suggest that it can neutralise multiple free radicals due to its structure.

Mitochondrial Function: C60 may enhance mitochondrial function, the energy powerhouses within cells, potentially boosting overall cellular energy production. 

Enhanced Cellular and Immune Function: As C60 aids with optimising cell functioning, it can contribute towards maintaining a healthy immune response. This protection extends to DNA, proteins, and lipids within cells. 

Due to these incredible findings, C60 is now commonly used as a supplement to support overall well-being and ongoing research continues to discover its potential health benefits.  

Individuals worldwide report experiencing benefits from C60 and we have experienced these ourselves. While we acknowledge the positive outcomes observed by many, C60 is not classified as a drug by the FDA, therefore regulatory constraints prevent us, as manufacturers, from making specific health-related claims about C60. 

Nevertheless, we are dedicated to sharing research findings and customer experiences. We invite customers to explore the up-to-date research and contribute to the vibrant online communities discussing C60. Engaging in these discussions and conducting personal research can provide valuable insights into the diverse experiences and ongoing research surrounding C60.

C60 Health Benefits  

Supports Healthy Cell Function:

C60, often hailed as a ‘free radical sponge,’ excels as a scavenger, effectively absorbing and neutralising free radicals. Studies highlight its remarkable antioxidant potency, surpassing traditional antioxidants by several hundred times [5]. It penetrates cells at a molecular level, demonstrating a protective effect against oxidative stress, shielding cells from potential damage [2][3][4]. 


Promotes Healthy Immune Response:

Studies suggest C60 can support a healthy inflammatory response at a cellular level [2].  

May Help Protect Against UVA Damage:

Studies have found C60 to be an effective antioxidant that supports cells against UVA-induced cellular damage [6].  


Promotes Healthy Cognitive Processes:

Several studies in rats have found that C60 suggest that C60 may have neuroprotective properties. [7][8][9][10][11][12][13].  

May Support Skin Health and Wrinkle Formation 

As a potent antioxidant, studies suggest C60 can support skin health with oxidative stress [16]. One study looking at the impact of C60 on wrinkles found that the percentage of wrinkled areas was significantly reduced in the fullerene/squalene cream-treated area compared to the placebo-treated area [14][15].  

May Support Muscle Endurance  

Many natural antioxidants such as glutathione are widely used by athletes to combat oxidative stress because they are known to support decreasing muscle fatigue and aid in the recovery from intense or endurant physical activity. Studies have found that C60 may have similar effects to support muscle fatigue and muscle endurance [17][18][19].
