The C60 molecule consists of 60 carbon atoms bonded together in a sphere structure that resembles the shape of a soccer ball. This revolutionary molecule was first generated by professors Harold Kroto, Robert Curl and Richard Smalley in 1985 at Rice University in Houston, Texas, USA. Later in 1996 they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their role in the discovery of C60. It is an extremely powerful antioxidant 172X more powerful than vitamin C and 100X more powerful than vitamin E. But most importantly, when dissolved in olive oil, C60 gets to where antioxidants are needed most, within cell membranes.
C60 Olive Oil works by enhancing the functioning of your body’s powerhouses within cells called mitochondria. Olive oil carries the C60 into the mitochondria where it makes the energy production process far more efficient and protects the mitochondria and its DNA from ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) damage, better than anything presently known to science.
Only recently have researchers began to explore the potential health benefits of supplementing with this extraordinary substance. A very exciting study by the University of Paris showed that the lifespans of rats given C60 Olive Oil almost doubled over the control group (90% longer). C60 is DNA strengthening, it offers UV and radio protection, has antiviral qualities, it is immune stimulating and has anti-cancer effects.
Due to preliminary research on its safety C60 has been cleared for human consumption in Europe. C60 Olive Oil is currently used for general health and longevity, but is also ideal for use as a pre-workout or pre-race energy supplement to ensure you are performing at your peak. You are likely to notice being able to lift heavier weights, increased reps in the gym, shaving seconds off your race times and increased stamina for endurance events.
