QUESTIONS FRÉQUEMMENT POSÉES

  • What is the recommended dosage and frequency of use?
    C60 has been known to function as an adaptogen that caters to the unique needs of each individual. Some may experience a boost in energy within the first 2 weeks, while others may experience a need for more rest during the early stages as the body engages in much-needed cellular repair processes. The biggest influencing factors are one's current health status, past and present dietary choices, fitness level and stress levels. The collective experiential and experimental evidence suggests the following guidelines based on each individual's need. Our scientifically designed Personal Carbon 60 Dosage Protocol that is included in the Starter Pack is designed to saturate your body with C60 so every cells gradually starts to function at optimal levels. You are empowered to choose when to take your dose and also customize your dosage volume based on the guidelines in the Dosage Protocol.
  • Is Avocado oil better than Olive oil?
    Is avocado oil better than olive oil? Both avocado oil and olive oil have a high antioxidant content that confers a number of well-established benefits. While olive oil has a strong pungent and spicy flavour profile, avocado oil has a very subtle herbaceous and slightly sweet taste that is more palatable for sublingual administration and is easier to digest than olive oil. Avocado oil is a top choice not only for oral consumption owing to its ease of digestion and neutral taste, but also for skin and hair applications due to its high monounsaturated fat content which promotes significantly better absorption compared to other oils. It is rich in oleic acid, plant sterols, vitamins A, D and E – all of which can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and gut. It is a lightweight oil that makes hair and skin look youthful, vibrant, moisturized and rejuvenated, and hence is used extensively in making skin creams, hair serums, lotions and ointments.
  • Why does C60 make me drowsy and sleepy?
    When we are stressed, our adrenals release cortisol and adrenaline which boost our heart rate, blood pressure, tense our muscles and sharpen our focus. While evolution would have favoured such a coping mechanism to help us flee from predators and other dangers, such a response is not meant to persist for a long period of time. If we are constantly stressed due to work, family commitments, financial responsibilities and other troubles, the rush of energy released by cortisol and adrenaline is what drives many of us through our busy and stressful lives. If our cortisol levels remain elevated they start to wreak havoc on our health by causing chronic inflammation linked to diseases including diabetes, Alzheimer’s, obesity and cancer. We may even find ourselves essentially too energized or wired to fall asleep. C60 functions as an adaptogen and works to bring our body back into a state of balance. In doing so it may lower cortisol and adrenaline, thus bringing our body and mind into a more relaxed state. If it is sleep that we are lacking, then drowsiness ensues. In supporting our body’s attempt to heal itself, taking C60 in the evening and/or before bed may help us enjoy more restful and rejuvenating sleep, thus allowing our bodies to start healing on a physical and mental level.
  • What is the shelf life of C60 Avocado oil?
    When stored in a cool, dark and dry place the shelf-life of an unopened bottle is up to 1 year. Once opened, we recommend using it within 1 - 2 months for optimal effectiveness and quality. The bottles do not need to be refrigerated.
  • What about my pets? Can I supplement their diet with C60?
    Absolutely - most pets are severely deficient in antioxidants and their diet can be supplemented with C60. Numerous scientific experiments and anecdotal evidence have demonstrated remarkable positive health and wellness outcomes in a large variety of pets. Pets suffering from lethargy, infertility, and aging-related afflictions experienced an overall boost in health, vitality and longevity when given small amounts corresponding to their body weight and ability to digest the oils.
  • Does C60 have any side effects?
    C60 is a truly universal antioxidant that protects against free radicals of all types by permanently neutralizing them and flushing them out of the body. During the initial stages of using C60 a small subset of users may experience a surge in the release of toxins. This may cause some unpleasant symptoms including an increased need for sleep, diarrhea and muscle soreness that may be experienced in the first 24 - 48 hrs. These detox symptoms are comparable to doing a juice fast or a strict detox regiment. For those who use C60 topically to alleviate skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, a subset of users may experiment a healing crisis i.e ‘Herxheimer Reaction’ wherein affected areas of skin may become more inflamed and sensitive for a period of time before the patches start to disappear. This is the result of the body replacing all the unhealthy tissues rapidly, and eliminating existing toxins at a faster rate than they can be removed. This process may last for a period of days or weeks depending on each individual’s unique health factors. Eating more plant-based foods that are low in sugar and carbs, and consuming adequate amount of good quality water will support your body's natural detoxification and regeneration process.
  • Is C60 toxic?
    C60 dissolved in either olive or avocado oil is not toxic. A study that sought to explore the toxicity profile of C60 found that it is not toxic even at very high doses that were administered for extended periods of time. On the contrary, rats that were given C60 were actually protected from the toxic effects of chemicals and lethal doses of radiation. This surprising find is what generated a lot of excitement in the research field.
  • Anti-Aging
    The most famous study was done in France where a scientific team demonstrated that rats receiving C60 nearly doubled their lifespan. This effect on lifespan is mainly due to the antioxidant power of C60. Research Article When treated with C60, mice that lacked mitochondrial superoxide dismutase (an antioxidant produced by the body) increased their lifespan by 300%. Research Article
  • Improved Skin Health
    When used topically twice a day for 4 weeks, the average number of acne reduced by 23%. After 8 weeks of use the reduction rate was 37%. C60 also decreased the number of pustules by 87%. Research Article C60 increased the moisture content of skin by 43% rendering the skin more soft and supple. It also increased the average collagen score by 33% after 28 days of treatment. Research Article Reduced wrinkle formation and rejuvenated skin. Research Article Reduced acne vulgaris by suppressing sebum secretion. Research Article Significantly reduced the UV-induced inhibition of keratinocyte proliferation and protected these skin cells from cell death due to UV irradiation. Research Article C60 had a therapeutic effect on eczema / atopic dermatitis by suppressing inflammation. Research Article
  • Restored Hair Growth
    A human clinical trial concluded that C60 treatment increased hair growth rate by 16% over a span of 6 months. Research Article Significantly increased the number of viable follicles in humans. Research Article Some reports indicate that regular application on the scalp restored original hair colour.
  • Improved Athletic Performance
    C60 prevented skeletal muscle fatigue and subsequently increased muscle endurance. Research Article 1 and Research Article 2 Athletes experience an increase in strength and endurance with decreased recovery times after intense work-out sessions. A commonly reported benefit was increased repititions of the same weight which surpassed the effectiveness of creatine and even anabolic steroids. Runners experienced increased stamina and endurance with less fatigue and with a steady pulse due to more efficient utilization of oxygen.
  • Anti-Cancer
    One study found C60 to inhibit the growth of tumours by 76.5% and inhibit metastasis by 48% while increasing lifespan by 22%. Research Article Increased the effectiveness of chemotherapy by over 200%. Research Article Protects normal cells against radiation-induced cell damage, while killing cancer cells. Research Article Rats that were given C60 nearly doubled their lifespans and did not develop any cancers, whereas those that didn’t receive C60 died within the normal 2-year range and some died of cancer. Research Article
  • Improved Cognition and Nervous System Function
