Carbon 60

What does it take for Optimum Brain & Body Wellness?  ENERGY!

Where do we make our energy?  In our Mitochondria – the amazing energy factories packed into our cells. The secret to more energy is boosting our mitochondrial energy production.  This is why I am so excited about Carbon 60 – it can supercharge our mitochondria.

Carbon 60 could be the most amazing chemistry discovery of the late 20th Century. Carbon 60 is a naturally occurring molecule comprised of 60 carbon atoms forming something that looks like a hollow soccer ball.  The scientific name for C60 is Buckminsterfullerene and it is the only molecule of a single element to form a spherical cage.  It has been extensively explored in biomedical research due to its unique structure and “free radical sponge” activity with an antioxidant efficacy several hundred-fold higher than conventional antioxidants.


The Discovery of C60

The molecule was originally hypothesized to exist by Buckminster Fuller. In 1979, he predicted the existence of the Carbon 60 Molecule and said it would be used in medicine in the future. In 1985, Carbon 60 was discovered by 3 scientists: Robert Curl, Harold Kroto, and Richard Smalley. They named the molecule in his honor “Buckminsterfullerene.” or “fullernene”. In 1996, they were awarded a Nobel Prize for the co-discovery of Carbon 60.

A fullerene dissolved in olive oil, a lipofullerne, has anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-pollution, skin brightening/lightening, hair growth-stimulation, anti-inflammatory, pore-tightening effects. It also helps with the improvement of the skin barrier and acne.

LipoFullerenes have been shown to up-regulate mitochondrial function at the same time they decrease inflammation.

C60 is Found in Nature

Not only can Carbon 60 be found in nature, but it also precedes life on Earth. It is produced in the atmospheres of giant red stars. Trace amounts can be found on Earth at meteor impacts and near lightning strikes but high purity Carbon 60 must be manufactured and refined.

The Most Powerful Antioxidant Yet Known?

Carbon 60 may be the most powerful antioxidant yet known. It is a Universal Antioxidant and can perform the antioxidant action of Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione, Catalase, and COQ10. It has been shown to be 270X stronger than Vitamin C and plays an important role in helping our mitochondria produce energy in our cells to boost our metabolism.


  • Increased energy – can increase energy, vitality, and stamina to help us feel younger, invigorated, and more energized.
  • Reduced inflammation.  Clinically tested to reduce inflammation across all body systems – including brain, gut, joints, muscles, liver, lungs and skin.
  • Anti-aging by reducing fine-line wrinkles, expelling toxins, and creating a healthy, natural glow to your skin.
  • Improved mental clarity, enhanced focus, and a balanced brain.
  • Reduced muscle fatigue, better workouts, and decreased recovery time.
  • Reduce and remove scar tissue when combined with Serratiopeptidase in the Revive and Rejuvenate products
  • Improved gut health, digestion, and immune function.
  • Improved muscle definition while feeling younger and stronger with less post workout soreness.


Start with 1 teaspoon daily with breakfast and gradually increase to 1 to 2 tablespoons per day with breakfast.
