Buckminster Fullerenes are sixty carbon atoms indestructibly arrayed in a soccer ball shape that holds the promise of increasing longevity by up to 90%.
It’s often referred to affectionately as buckyballs but for the sake of brevity, I’ll refer to it from here on as C60.
There are thousands of pieces of scientific research that have been done on this versatile molecule and 9 clinical trials which appear on Pubmed.
A landmark 2012 placebo-controlled animal study out of the University of Paris found that it doubled the lifespans of the rats given C60 olive oil. This longevity effect is unequaled among longevity studies.
Our results show that while olive oil treatment can lead to an increase of 18% of lifespan of treated rats, C60-olive oil can increase it up to 90%, as compared to controls…
what is noteworthy is that at [month] 38 all C60-treated rats were still alive. Thus, based on previous investigations,C60 should be the most efﬁcient ever material for extending lifespan.
The study emphasized the importance of dissolving it in olive oil…
It is to be stressed that dissolved C60 appears hundred times more active than when it is in suspension…
The effect of pristine C60 on lifespan emphasizes the absence of chronic toxicity… These results of importance in the fields of medicine and toxicology should open the way for the many possible -and waited for- biomedical applications of C60 including cancer therapy, neurodegenerative disorders, and ageing.
There’s significant interest among health enthusiasts in C60 and a significant body of animal studies and in vitro research on the stuff, you’re welcome to conspiracy theorize as to why the institutions of science and medicine aren’t more interested in conducting human clinical trials.
There’s an entire forum on Longecity devoted to C60 discussion. In fact, you can thank the Biohackers on Longecity and elsewhere across the internet for self experimenting with C60 and establishing a crowdsourced corpus of statistically significant anecdotal evidence for its effects as an anti-aging agent and performance-enhancing Nootropic.
