NOBEL PRIZE WINNING DISCOVERY
The 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Harold Kroto and his research team for discovering this remarkable molecule.
C60 is a super-antioxidant that neutralizes Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and alleviates symptoms of inflammation.
A research study demonstrated that rats treated with C60 lived for nearly twice as long. They did not develop any tumours and demonstrated increased immune function with significant resilience to lethal doses of toxic radiation.
REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES DAMAGES CELLS CAUSES INFLAMMATION
ROS refer to a number of reactive molecules and free radicals that are produced due to exposure to UV-rays, air pollutants, industrial chemicals, radiation, cigarette smoke and pesticides.
ROS damage proteins, mutate DNA and deform lipids in all cells and tissues.
This results in chronic inflammation and disease.
PREVENTS CELL DAMAGE
C60 has an antioxidant capacity that is several hundred times higher than other antioxidants, and is 172 times more powerful than Vitamin C in neutralizing ROS.
Immense research has been done assessing the ability of C60 to alleviate symptoms associated with ROS-induced cellular damage and disease pathology.
