Today's post is about what I consider to be the most exciting new development in the C60 field, Naturally-Occurring C60.
It really isn't a 'new' development as this has been available in Eastern Europe for over 25 years, however, it is quite new to the Western world.
Greetings, Dr. Max MacCloud (DO, ND, PhD) here, AKA The Nutrition Ninja Doc. My life's mission is to help people overcome their health challenges and achieve their health-related goals. I believe that health is the foundation of a happy and fulfilling life AND true health must be cultivated rather than left up to chance or the luck of the draw. Part of my mission in helping others to achieve their health goals is to constantly research innovative health solutions.
As I've mentioned previously, I believe that Carbon 60 may be the biggest health breakthrough in our lifetime. However, it is not a panacea, it cannot do its work all by itself. We have to provide a solid foundation by cultivating good health via proper nutrition, exercise & activity, rest, repair, rejuvenation, and stress management. That being said, let's delve into Naturally-Occurring Carbon 60.
Virtually ALL of the Carbon 60 being sold today is 'synthetically made.' It is made or synthesized in a laboratory type of setting that requires elaborate, expensive equipment. Of course, Carbon 60 does occur naturally in many places but in extremely low concentrations, hence the need to synthesize it for commercial use. In this process, many forms of carbon are created which then requires additional separation and isolation processing that entails the use of various solvents. That's why the solvent removal process is so elaborate and important.
The Absolute Best Source Of Carbon 60 There Is - Shungite.
The reason that every other manufacturer uses 'synthetic' C60 is that a natural source was not available. However, after much research and a good deal of luck, I located one. In fact, I believe it to be THE ABSOLUTE BEST SOURCE OF CARBON 60 THERE IS. Additionally, it occurs along with 40 additional minerals and trace minerals which are also essential to life and health. The source is SHUNGITE! I'll do some in-depth posts about Shungite in the future but here's the quick and dirty for now.
Shungite is a unique, complex mineraloid deposit that is only known to occur in a handful of places near Shunga, Russia. It is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline mineraloid consisting of more than 98% carbon by weight. It contains Carbon 60 (fullerenes) in small amounts. This has been known for some time, however, what I recently discovered is that there is a company that has developed a method to extract and concentrating this naturally-occurring carbon 60 from Shungite. What's even more exciting is that they have been successfully doing this and selling it for over 25 years! The product is even approved for both topical and oral use making it the ONLY Carbon 60 product that is approved for such uses. And, as I mentioned previously, it also contains 40 additional vital minerals and trace minerals.
There's even more GREAT NEWS associated with this naturally-occurring form of Carbon 60. Since it is naturally-occurring, the process of extracting and concentrating it is much more efficient than synthesizing it from carbon blocks. By 'more efficient' I also mean SIGNIFICANTLY LESS COSTLY!
This cost-saving allows us to manufacture Carbon 60 products that use the naturally-occurring form instead of the synthetic form at a much lower cost. We are passing those savings along to our customers rather than taking a larger profit. This is part of my mission to bring 'Innovative Health Solutions' to the masses that are also cost-effective. Remember, Carbon 60 is something that should be consumed long term if one is to derive the potential benefits that we are hoping for as the rats in the famous Paris study did. By using 'naturally-occurring' C60, we can offer Carbon 60 products at 30-50% LESS than those using Synthetically-produced Carbon 60. This is a game-changer in my opinion.
If you've been holding off trying Carbon 60 due to the cost, now is the time to test the waters. We now offer Naturally-Occurring Carbon 60 in Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil. Eventually, we'll make it available in other oils as well
