Abstract: Countless studies showed that fullerene (C60) and derivatives could have many potential biomedical applications. However, while several independent research groups showed that C60 has no acute or sub-acute toxicity in various experimental models, more than 25 years after its discovery the in vivo fate and the chronic effects of this fullerene remain unknown. If the potential of C60 and derivatives in the biomedical field have to be fulfilled these issues must be addressed. Here we show that oral administration of C60 dissolved in olive oil (0.8 mg/ml) at reiterated doses (1.7 mg/kg of body weight) to rats not only does not entail chronic toxicity but it almost doubles their lifespan. The effects of C60-olive oil solutions in an experimental model of CCl4 intoxication in rat strongly suggest that the effect on lifespan is mainly due to the attenuation of age-associated increases in oxidative stress. Pharmacokinetic studies show that dissolved C60 is absorbed by the gastro-intestinal tract and eliminated in a few tens of hours. These results of importance in the fields of medicine and toxicology should open the way for the many possible -and waited for- biomedical applications of C60 including cancer therapy, neurodegenerative disorders, and ageing.

Carbon 60 is considered a super anti-oxidant! It is also considered a great detoxifier. Carbon 60 m might be the greatest discovery of our time! A Nobel prize was awarded for the discovery of Carbon 60. In making our Carbon 60 we have meticulously followed the original Baati / Paris method of Carbon 60 olive oil preparation. Our goal is to provide a product with the same formulation used to achieve the exciting results of this groundbreaking study.
We start with top quality ingredients: research grade Carbon 60 from the most respected source in the industry, SES Research—which begins at 99.95+ % purity and is then vacuum oven dried to be completely solvent-free—and cold pressed pumpkin seed oil.
To achieve the scientifically recognized maximum level of saturation (0.8 grams per liter / 0.8 mg per ml), we combine 5 grams of Carbon 60 per liter of organic cold pressed pumpkin seed oil, as described in the Baati process.
We mix this combination for two weeks in total darkness using specialized equipment that ensures constant suspension of Carbon 60 particles. The mixing occurs in temperature controlled conditions to avoid Carbon 60 degradation from light or heat.
We then bottle our solution in dark amber glass bottles, and quickly package for delivery to you.
