Carbon 60 is a unique molecule with 60 Carbon atoms and the shape of Buckminster Fuller’s Geodesic Dome doubled to make a ball—known colloquially as a Bucky Ball. This molecule was hypothesized for years, but finally created by a group of chemists in the late 1980s for which the Nobel Prize was awarded in 1996. Subsequently, studies in rats demonstrated considerable increased lifespan with C60. It is a tremendous anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory, acting as a scavenger of free radicals.
In a preliminary study of volunteers, C60 increased telomere length—a measure of biologic age (the longer the better). There is both biologic and chemical basic science publications to support this possibility
Bob Greska is a material scientist who has studied carbon products for NASA and other aerospace applications. He developed the first process for C60 that does not use a solvent. Therefore, Greska C60 is solvent free, maximally concentrated, and non- crystallized. Dr. Merritt had the opportunity to meet Mr. Greska years ago at an Anti-Aging meeting and has personally been using C60 for years.
