C60
Anti-aging, Podcast

I've been getting a lot of questions about C60 – AKA Carbon 60 – AKA Buckminsterfullerene – which is now being championed as one of the most potent anti-aging and anti-inflammatory molecules in existence, and highly effective for both people and animals.

So I decided to get one of the world's leading C60 researchers and formulators on my show to discuss C60 and beyond. His name is Ian Mitchell.

Ian based the development of his version of his company's C60 on the detoxification of the body, the reduction of inflammation, and the associated pain that comes with it. His product contains an assortment of ingredients that exhibit antioxidant properties 270 times stronger than Vitamin C, eliminate scar tissue, and rehabilitate injured tissues. The result is an increase in energy, alertness, and overall well being.

Ian's company, C360Health, adheres to the strictest quality control standards that assure the purity of Carbon60 Plus. Unlike most other C60 EVOO producers, they are not just buying and mixing “off the shelf” components. They carefully test the Carbon60 assuring maximum purity and yield and then combine that with domestically sourced olive oil. This allows them to control all components of the supply chain as well as to perform periodic inspections at all stages of the process. Their Carbon60 purity is measured using HPLC (High-Performance Liquid Chromatography) and extra virgin olive oil tested via spectrophotometric analysis.

  1. Stephane says:

    Hello Ian, there is an 404 error on your website for the HairGrowth page.
    I would like to order some. Is it possible to ship to France?
    Thanks for your time

  2. John Wike says:

    Is there a discount code for the c360 website? Thanks!

  3. Deanna says:

    The hair growth directions seem to indicate that if you need to use it daily you should not be using shampoo and conditioner at all. Is this true? Might work with guys and buzz cut hair, but us women we will have a real hard time.

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Deanna, not the case. It’s best if you use the serum late in the evening and then wash your hair in the morning. The idea is that there isn’t residue that ends up getting pushed into the cells and mucks up the gear works.

  4. Blair says:

    Hi Ian, I enjoyed the podcast! I’m keen to try the C360 HairGrowth as I’m thinning on top. I’ve tried to order off the C360 Heath website. The issue is that when I enter my address it doesn’t recognise it. I’m in New Zealand. Cheers, Blair

  5. Damian says:

    Ian, thanks for the info. Any reason to believe (or not) that the hair regrowth serum would work to fill in a patchy beard? Also, when you used it to regrow hair, or in your experience with others, did it work on hair that had been lost a couple years prior, or only more recently?

  6. Kevin says:

    Is there any benefit to taking c60 for yeast overgrowth, such as candida?

    1. Deanna says:

      I would like to know this as well, and if not working currently on Yeast Overgrowth, are there any efforts ongoing to tune C60 for this condition? It is very frustrating with no good solutions yet on the market.

  7. nusha Kerin says:

    Hi – Ian and Ben – my question is about safety and cancer.
    I’d love to try this product but how can you endorse it with the concerns re cancer growth?
    Although the mechanism is different – the analogy is like the effects of growth hormone – everything grows – you feels great but if there is an early undiagnosed cancer or precancerous lesion – it sounds like this will go on a field day!!
    Can you alleviate my fears that this is NOT the case??
    I’m confused how it could be so widely available for human consumption with this potential tumour stimulating effect and absence of long term reassuring studies to argue otherwise

  8. Dena Zimbel says:

    Can you shed some light on the findings in this study regarding the phototoxicity of c60?

    Not sure if its talking about degradation of the molecule or harm to the epithelial cells. Thanks!
    https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/tx800478u

    1. Dena Zimbel says:

      I re-read the abstract and it does seem they are measuring cellular ocular damage…which version of c60 is in your products?
      It seems the aggregated derivative CDF150 was not phototoxic, but the (γ-CyD)2/C60, CDF0 or bi-capped derivative was.
      Could you kindly clarify??? Thanks!

  9. Michelle says:

    Hi Ian,

    I just ordered a subscription for the women’s Rejuvenate. Thank you for providing all the great info and making these products available. I’m so excited to include this in my wellness regimen.

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Michelle,

      You’re very welcome and I hope you enjoy it!!!!

      ~ i

  10. Mike says:

    Will I have to take the hair growth product for the rest of my life or can I take it for a few months to see long term effects?

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Mike, I made it for myself and didn’t want to have to do it forever. Just on more of an infrequent touch up basis. After it grows back and you stop using the serum, it will go away again at roughly the same page that it went away originally. I would recommend regrowing it and then just using it a few days a month after the fact.

  11. Adrienne says:

    I know that taking anti- oxidants within so many hours pre and post training isn’t the best idea for recovery. Is this the same with this product? This is suggested to take in the morning. If I lift in the morning (powerlifting), would it be best/ alright to take in the evening? ( at least 4 hrs post training). Or is it like DHA/EPA that can be consumed prior to lifting but not too soon after?

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Adrienne, for your training routine as described, sounds like it would be best to take it in the evening post training. I don’t think it’s necessary that it be 4 hours afterwards, 2 is fine.

  12. Dave says:

    Hey Ian, I’m an airline pilot so I get a healthy dose of radiation, should I go with the suggested serving size or up the dose while I’m flying.

    Thanks.

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hey Dave,

      I would up the dose while flying. Take it about 4-6 hours pre-flight to give it plenty of time to distribute throughout your system.

    2. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi David, I apologize in advance for the forthcoming onslaught of nerd….
      This study has always intrigued me, b/c my dad cited it after his hear attack when I recommended that he take lipifullerenes to protect himself against reperfusion injury in the future. The real issue is that in a proper form the C60 is fantastic and in an improper form it can be damaging. In this particular study it was set up very differently than I would ever recommend for ingestion by any mammal. It was bound to PVP and I very much take issue with the safety of that. So pulling the data from their supplemental information (which generally goes unread) here’s how it was made:
      A homogeneous suspension was prepared by
      adding a solution of PVP (94.5 mg) in CHCl3 (3.15 mL) to a solution of C60 (0.63 mg) in toluene (0.78 mL) and stirring for 30 min. The solution was transferred quantitatively to a 5 mL volumetric flask and brought to volume with CHCl3. Aliquots of 0.28 mL were removed using a calibrated syringe to generate sample of 0.035 mg of C60 and 5.29 mg PVP each. The volatiles
      were evaporated using ultra pure nitrogen and the residue was dissolved in 0.3 mL of ethanol.
      So, cutting to the chase, they combined it with a biologically poor carrier that has occasionally been found to be inflammatory. When you conjugate C60, quite frequently you end up getting different properties than one might expect. I would posit that this is exactly what happened here.
      There are a fair number of studies from Baylor University that drive the point home about it’s RI protective benefits. They’re worth a read.

  13. David says:

    I wonder if Ian would comment on the 2014 study that showed cardiac injury in rats exposed to c60.

      1. David says:

        Thank you! You didn’t have to dumb it down so much ;-)

  14. Geoff Lay says:

    I’ve been doing a lot of Googling today and I’ve read multiple times that carbon 60 in olive oil becomes carcinogenic if it’s exposed to any light what-so-ever. (Longecity.org, Reddit etc). Is there any truth to this and is the oil from 360 made/shipped in a way which protects it from this? Is time limit before it becomes dangerous to take?

  15. John says:

    I have a couple of questions…I noticed you have c60 plus and also an extra strength option. If I took a little extra of the regular would I notice the same results?

    Also, what are the primary reasons for taking revive over the c60 plus? I’m in my mid 40s and along with improving overall health I want to perform better athletically and increase overall energy.

    Thanks

  16. Mitch says:

    Would this be efficacious for TBI recovery?

  17. Rick says:

    Interesting info. Looking for a C60 product for someone with colorectal cancer (Stage IV). Would that be the c360 Revive? Any suggestions on dosing.

    Thanks!

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Rick, the first things to do would be to get them on a keto diet, have them contact the center for deuterium depletion that is referenced in the show notes above. I’m biased, but if it were me, the Revive is what I would run with, but only as a month on 2 week off protocol. I sincerely hope this helps out and they make a great recovery!!

  18. Aves Bird says:

    should probably word on that website….. The dogs (pets) product you raved about serves a 404 error. https://c360health.com/product/companion-60-for-d…. is it available?

    what’s the shelf like on this stuff? does the efficacy decrease over time?

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Aves, the URL is below:
      https://c360health.com/product/companion60-for-dogs-8-oz/
      Yep, it’s available and the shelf life is a year and yes the efficacy does decrease over time.

  19. Samantha Hill says:

    Guys got all kinds of hacky solutions for people. But yet can’t even regulate his own body weight. What a joke.

    1. Joe says:

      He can’t help it, it’s all in his jeans…

    2. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Samantha, I worked out with Ben and he looks great and is probably rocking sub 6% body fat, so I’m not sure what you’re on about, but you should probably stand down or you’ll give him a complex.

      1. Mike says:

        Like your style Ian

  20. Preston says:

    I’ve been looking for a reputable source of Epitalon (and other peptides). There are so many suppliers popping up and it is likely a lot of them are not providing good quality products. I can order through my functional doctors but the cost is through the roof doing it that way. I don’t think I can buy direct from Tailormade.

    Any ideas of reliable Epitalon and overall peptide sources would be great.

    Thanks

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Preston, GenScript is very reliable and where I purchase mine. ~ i

  21. john says:

    on page 262 of dave aspreys book superhuman it says carbon60plus currently costs $25 for a 6 week supply.

    My calculations from the website indicate something closer to $180 for a 6 week supply. What am i missing?

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi John, at a teaspoon a day that’s just about right for the base product Carbon60PLUS. It’s $27/bottle and a lot of people use that over the course of a month or a bit longer. I personally take quite a bit more, but am going for a different effect long term. ~ i

      1. Ian Mitchell says:

        One other quick point John, I’d recommend you dose it with hormesis in mind, i.e. take a day, skip a day take 3 days skip a day, etc. Just keep it a bit randomized so your body doesn’t get used to it and down-regulate your own endogenous antioxidant production.

      2. Julie Siemers says:

        What is the difference in Carbon60Plus and the Revive or Rejuvenate?

  22. john says:

    it appears that the extra strength c60 is 4 ounces or 24 teaspoons. At a 2 teaspoon dose a day a $44 bottle should last 12 days. Its close to $4 a day. is this correct?

    with a 10 day loading phase of 4.5 teaspoons a day the first bottle should only last 5 days. Am i getting this wrong?

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      I’d recommend you run with the base product as it’s only $27 so at a teaspoon a day, works out to $1.12 a day and it’s even less expensive if you go with a subscription program.

  23. Michael Lance says:

    Went to the website but the info on bottle size and number of doses isn’t found anywhere. The bottle image is blurry and you can’t make out the fl oz either. So…how can I determine the cost per month? I can’t. Very sad. Not impressed. I’ll just have to assume its ridiculously expensive per dose and on bottle only lasts half a month. No sale.

  24. Alise Ford says:

    Wow. Not a single answer. Not cool.

  25. Bob Daniels says:

    What utter snake oil. I thought higher standards for science outweigh $$

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Bob, what specifically are you addressing? If you give me some direction, I’ll know what studies to send your way. ~ i

    2. joe luisi says:

      My issue is that all the C60 proponents that are on all the health podcast own the companies selling the C60
      conflict of interest?????
      When I took it my sleep was a little better but I was having angry dreams. Waking up angry all the time so I stopped using it

      1. Ian Mitchell says:

        Hi Joe, I completely agree with that assessment in the general sense and I’m sure I’m not immune to basic bias. Personally I don’t think C60 is the be all end all, it’s just the best thing I’ve been able to find so far.
        Carbon binds toxins and when you’re detoxing, you’re prone to un-fun dreams. I’d stay the course you’ll be better for it on the other side.

  26. Ken says:

    Is there a coupon code for C360 Health? Thanks

    1. Ian Mitchell says:

      Hi Alise, currently working on revitalizing my cool. ~ i

  27. Finally I got the web site to work and ordered. However, what is the recommended frequency of ordering? There were several options.

    Thanks,

    Bill

  28. Hi,

    As of right now, I think you crashed the web site. I tried to order and just get error 502. In fact, now I get it when I click on the link to the site. Yep, I bet we crashed it. I will keep trying.

    Bil

  29. RoxAnne says:

    Is there a coupon or discount code you might be offering for these products?

  30. Mads says:

    Hi! Which dosage and which of the products from C360 health will be most beneficial for joint/bone-injuries?
    I’m running around 100 miles a week at the elite level, and are doing everything to avoid those nagging injuries, but do have a historic with lower limp injuries. Therefore I find it really interesting that this can enhance the healing of tissues :-)
    Thanks for a great episode as always!

    Regards,
    Mads

  31. Cole says:

    I started takin TRU Niagen for NAD boost a few seeks back. Im confused about NF, MNM and NAD after listening to podcast. As far as I understand, MNM has a phosphate, making it molecularity larger than NR and cannot enter a cell, unless it sheds the phosphate turning into NR, which then can boost NAD. Is this accurate? If NF makes NAD, what the difference in taking NAD vs NF?

    What do you recommend and why?

    1. Mary says:

      There is recent podcast with Rhonda Patrick and David Sinclair that answers this question.
