VitaShell - Carbon 60 | C60 Oil from South Africa, Cape Town
We are a Cape Town-based producer of Carbon 60 | C60 oil made using best quality C60 procured from SES Research and locally-sourced oils.
Detoxification is important for wellbeing. This happens automatically in the body but due to stressful lifestyles and the environmental toxins the detoxification of our bodies is not optimal. It is advisable to provide assistance to the body to deal with these toxins. Carbon 60 (C60) is 173 times stronger than Vitamin C and is the strongest antioxidant known to mankind at this stage. Consider that detoxification affects everybody differently and will create different results.
C60 (carbon 60) is said to attracts free-radicals and due to the free-radicals magnetic properties attaches itself to the C60 molecule and gets flushed out by the body.
Carbon 60 | C60 present in the lipofullerene acts as an anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger helping to maintain overall good health.
The process of oxidation happens as our bodies metabolise the oxygen that we breathe and our cells produce energy from it. This process also produces free radicals, which interact with the molecules within our cells resulting in damage or stress to nearby cells, mitochondria and DNA.
Find some of the benefits that have been reported by people who claimed to have used C60 oil. These include:
Increase in energy levels; Petty ailments clearing up for example acne; Improved sleep quality; Performance and endurance increase; Ability to lift heavier weights and do more reps; Reduction in stress; Ability to run faster and for longer; Recuced Recovery times after exercise.
The Carbon 60 molecule was discovered in 1985 by three researchers, Richard Smalley, Harry Kroto, and Robert Curl, all working at Rice University at the time.
C60 molecules are composed of carbon atoms linked to three other carbon atoms by molecular bonds. The carbon atoms are connected in the same pattern of hexagons and pentagons as you find on a soccer ball.
C60 is said to attract free-radicals and, due to the magnetic properties of free-radicals, attaches itself to the C60 molecule, and is then flushed out by the body.
Carbon C60 present in the lipofullerene acts as an anti-oxidant and free radical 'scavenger', helping to maintain overall good health. Fullerene C60 is also known to be able to deactivate hydroxyl radicals by attaching to the double bonds.
Since free radicals are more 'energetic' due to their unpaired electron, they have a tendency to be reactive with other molecules. As a result, most free radicals are unstable and very reactive, and can be harmful to the body. C60 works to neutralise large numbers free radicals. When the cells of the body are relieved of an existing free radical oxidative burden, they can again function at normal efficiency and begin to repair themselves.
Ours is a metal-free process by which we begin with mixing Carbon 60 molecules with oil for 1 day. Thereafter, sonication is used to 'open' the oil and further dissolve the Carbon 60. The solution is then mixed for another 14 days to reach a higher saturation rate of approximately 0.8 mg per 1 ml.
Next, the oil is vacuum filtered twice through a 1.0 and 0.22 micron porosity to remove aggregates and bacteria. Finally, the finished Carbon C60 oil is poured into Cobalt glass bottles to protect it from UV light.
What You Get:
A 100/200 ml bottle of VitaShell Carbon60 C60 infused into your oil of choice. If selected, one dropper (1-5 ml) to ensure accurate dosing (optional).
Proper dosing of Carbon 60 has not been scientifically evaluated, however, we have researched enough feedbacks from customers to feel confident in proposing some general dosing recommendations. For people wishing to experiment with the long term benefits of Carbon 60, we recommend taking one teaspoon per day (approx. 5 ml), every day, we further recommend to have this in the morning due to the energy it can creates and at times may conflict with the sleeping pattern. There are about 20 teaspoons in a 100 ml bottle. Some performance athletes prefer taking higher doses e.g. one bottle at once, one bottle per month. This method provides a noticeable boost in performance for some people.
To protect the product from degradation, we recommend storing the oil in a place where it is protected from light, such as a cupboard or use a miron glass bottle which has great UV protection properties. It can be refrigerated but the properties of the oil can change and may cause the oil to harden or lose its viscosity. When stored properly, an unopened bottle of Carbon 60 olive oil has a shelf life of up to two years. Once opened, we recommend using within 30-60 days for maximum quality.
