“Abstract: Novel mechanism of antioxidant activity of buckminsterfullerene C60 based on protons absorbing and mild uncoupling of mitochondrial respiration and phosphorylation was postulated. In the present study we confirm this hypothesis using computer modeling based on Density Functional Theory. Fullerene’s geroprotective activity is sufficiently higher than those of the most powerful reactive oxygen species scavengers. We propose here that C60 has an ability to acquire positive charge by absorbing inside several protons and this complex could penetrate into mitochondria. Such a process allows for mild uncoupling of respiration and phosphorylation. This, in turn, leads to the decrease in ROS production.”

C60 vs lung carcinoma in mice: 3 x slower tumor growth, 2 x less metastasis, 22% longer life.
This C60 anti-cancer study shows impressive results in mice that have been implanted with a lung carcinoma. The researchers gave two groups of mice cancer and split them into a group that was given 5 mg/kg of C60 and a control group. All mice died of the cancer but the mice that were given C60 lived 22% longer. C60-anti-cancer-study Note how the mice were only given a single dose, no daily treatments. 5 mg/kg would mean, for an adult human patient weighing 70 kg, 350 mg. That is equivalent 8 bottles of a C60 product. It is unknown whether olive-oil dissolved C60 is as potent against cancer as water-dissolved C60. It could be more potent and it could be less potent. It also is unknown whether it will work on humans with cancer as well as on mice with cancer, and it is unknown whether it will work as well on other cancers as it did with the lung carcinoma used in the mice.
Much more research on this amazing product is currently underway!
