Top 9 Surprising Benefits of C60 Oil

I found the following interesting information here: https://www.selfhacked.com/blog/fullerene-top-10-benefits-c60-oil/

Buckminsterfullerene, buckyballs, or C60 is a powerful antioxidant that has effects on unsaturated fats. C60 removes superoxide, which is a toxic by-product of cellular metabolism that contributes to tissue injury in many human diseases. A review of scientific research has shown that C60 has longevity and antioxidant effects given its scavenging capacity for reactive oxygen species. Some think that by absorbing nearby acid, C60 is then attracted to the mitochondria and carries the protons superoxide acceptors to prevent the very source of damage from the electron transport chain. The proposed mechanism indicates that C60 has the ability to acquire positive charge by absorbing protons (positively charged hydrogen atoms) and this complex could enter the mitochondria, leading to a decrease in reactive oxygen species production. Computer simulations have shown that C60 has the ability the pass through lipid membranes, enter the cell, and alter its functions. Some C60 derivatives that are produced in the body are water soluble and apparently non-toxic below concentrations of 1 mg/mL . Carboxy C60 is significantly better than ubiquinone, preventing fat peroxidation and iron-induced oxidation in cells. Also, malonyl-C60 inhibits nitric oxide synthase, a creator of nitric oxide which is a free radical in test-tubes. Furthermore C60 kills Viruses, protects Nerves (Nerves can die from being fired too often and worked too hard. Hydroxyl C60 protects nerves from dying due to overwork in cell cultures), prevents Osteoarthritis, improves Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome, kills Bacteria, prevents UV Damage and is also able to decrease Th2 and Th17 Dominance, a major contributing factor to many chronic illnesses and autoimmune disorders.
