An important aspect of having a healthy body is to reduce the amount of free radicals. These compounds damage the cells by putting them under oxidative stress. As a result of this, overtime the cells are destroyed. Not only do free radicals destroy the cells, they have also been linked to advancing the ageing process. Luckily, antioxidants can prevent this process from happening by scanning the body for these compounds and inhibiting them, preventing further damage to the cells. Oxidative stress is prevalent in all of us and is more enhanced by every day actions like breathing in polluted air, smoking, stress, exercise, eating, EMF radiation and just about everything we do. Whilst some level of this type of stress in the body is now proving to be beneficial, toxic overload of it is not.
Considered the World’s strongest antioxidant, C60 is an inert Carbon molecule with 60 carbon atoms that mops up damaging free radicals. C60 is able to both donate and accept electrons and not be used up in the process.
Antioxidants, are abundant in youthful human bodies but markedly decline as we age. An imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants can lead to a general state of oxidative stress which can damage lipids, proteins, DNA and cell mitochondria. They work in every cell in every part of your body, so it could be hypothesized that they have potential to help provide relief from some of the debilitating issues we suffer from and protect us from the bombardment of every day stressors.
Because C60 Oils can be consumed straight from the bottle they are also very easy to use either as an ingredient in your food or straight off a spoon.
