another opinon and info
This came across my notice as a firsthand experience and I wanted to share it (I can’t make claims or even say this is a typical experience, but you decide it’s worth)
Carbon 60 (C-60) is a Carbon structure based on the Buckminster Fuller Geodesic Dome design (nicknamed Buckyballs). C-60 is also known as Fullerene – after Bucky Fuller. C-60 is a molecule that is shaped very much like a soccer ball. It is a molecule in the shape of a spherical ball, made of 60 carbon atoms (C60). Its structure has both hexagon and pentagon formations. It is found in nature, as the result of the residuals of a lightning strike typically in soot or other carbon-based ash in very small amounts. The C-60 is also made in laboratories with an expensive and time consuming synthetic process.
In the numerous independent Laboratories and Universities research studies, primarily in Russia, Europe, China, and Japan, noted in the references cited below have shown remarkable health and longevity benefits. The medical and chemical research industry noticed the physical properties of C-60 several years ago in the mid-1980’s. They discovered that C-60 was physically inactive, in that they won’t react with anything indicating that they are harmless and totally non-toxic to the body.
C-60 atoms are chemically inert and the spherical ball shape forms a perfectly symmetrical structure… at the very small Nano level, as in Nano-technology. No other molecule has been found in the current research that bonds with C-60 thus allowing unstable molecules, such as free radicals, to adhere to the C-60 molecules. This permits the C-60 to remove the free radicals as a very superior antioxidant – research shows it is 100 times more effective in removing free radicals than Vitamin E and 172 times more effective than Vitamin C.
Since C-60 molecules will not dissolve in water and are chemically inert, C-60 research has discovered organic oil that will, with a specific mixing process, act as a carrier of the C-60 – specifically Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil as well as several others. After testing 9 different organic oils, such as Grape Seed Oil, Apricot Oil, Linseed Oil, etc., the research found Olive to be superior. In addition, Olive-Oil
is readily available and less expensive than the other oils.
C-60 is the combination of C-60 at the purity level of 99.95% and organic, cold pressed pure Olive Oil, Coconut Oil or Avocado Oil. C-6Olive is the product of a proprietary process that combines the two ingredients, as well as a proprietary frequency enhancement process into the final version that is marketed by Live Longer Labs.
Among the documented benefits reported in the research and testing are:
• Longevity – Research Shows a Doubling or more of Life Expectancy.
• Inhibiting the Rate of Tumor Growth and Metastasis
• Superior Antioxidant
• Cardiovascular Health
• Improved Cognitive Ability
• Increased Stamina & Overall Feeling Good

Is it Safe?
Lead researcher in Baati Rat study ( toxicity study that ended up doubling life rather than kill the rats!) said ‘Safe at high doses over long Periods of Time.’
Allometric Scaling (see below) suggests less than 1 mg/day ( C60 producers fail to mention this low dosage requirement. I find this dishonest and putting profits over people. (Though I’d make a lot of money if I left this out!)

The rats were given 1.7 mg/kg body weight 24 times over a 7-month period. Say the average lifespan of a human is 900 months and the average lifespan of a rat is 36 months. So humans live 25 times longer. So the rats were on C60 for roughly 20% of their natural expected lifespan. The rats received a total of 24 x (1.7 / 2) mg = 27.4 mg. Say the average human weighs 70 kilo, 140 times more than the rats in the study. Then during 20% of his/her lifespan (15 years), a human would need to take 27.4 x 140 x 25 = 95900 mg. 95900 g / (15 x 365) = 17.5 mg/day. However, there is such a thing as allometric scaling, when scaling a dose from one weight class into another:
You can verify there that there is an allometric scaling factor of 3.44 from our rats to humans, yielding an equivalent daily C60 dose for humans of 5 mg/day. (Use the following parameters: Weight1 = 0.5 kg, Weight2 = 70 kg, Dose1 = 0.85 mg, Exponent = 0.75). So my calculations get 5 mg/day. However, there is not much reason to believe that this dose is required, to enjoy the beneficial effect. The rat study’s goal was to find toxic effects, not establish medicinal properties.
All we have in one anecdotal report from someone who took a single 2 mg dose and said that 4 hours after he took that dose, he could run 3 km, something he had not been able to do for a decade (correct me if I’m wrong). So I think it’s reasonable, so far, taking many (more) factors into account, to advise 1 mg/day. If we take allotrometric scaling into account. there are many factors that play a role. The optimal dose may be lower or higher, and the dose at which you’re seeing a substantial beneficial effect may be an order of magnitude less.
