Recently there has been a lot of research into anti-aging and disease prevention, and scientists have concluded that free radicals are a large contributing factor to our failing health. Not only do free radicals contribute to the process of aging; they are thought to contribute to a range of diseases including cancer and hardening of the arteries.
What is a free radical?
Scientifically, a free radical is a molecule that has an unpaired election. Since this molecule is always seeking balance it will give away its unpaired electron or take one from another molecule creating a chain reaction in nearby molecules. These rogue molecules can damage the membranes of cells, DNA, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in our body’s.
We naturally produce free radicals just by being alive. Healthy activities such as running or strength training can create free radicals. Generally free radicals are kept in balance by anti-oxidants through foods that we eat. Unfortunately, the creation of free radicals is not limited to exercising.
Everyday we are exposed to a number of external influences that create free radicals in our body. Things like car exhaust, cigarette smoke, pesticides/herbicides, and radiation exposure create free radicals. In our modern life exposure to these things is not 100% avoidable.
What is an anti-oxidant?
As with most things health related, what we put in our bodies goes a long way to preventing diseases and old age discomforts. A recent study of food related anti-oxidants shows that eating unprocessed foods, which have more nutrients and vitamins, help to fight free radicals. Anti-oxidants are free radical scavengers in the body that donate electrons “attaching” to and preventing them from damaging the body further.
Perhaps more important, Carbon 60 has been shown to be an excellent; superior; non-toxic anti-oxidant. Adding a superior anti-oxidant like Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ to your diet will help your body fight free radicals. Our proprietary process of creating and suspending single molecules of Carbon 60 in Sunflower Oil is solvent free making it safer than other carbon-60 products on the market. Because our perfected process produces single molecules of Carbon 60 they can repair much more free radical damage than other anti-oxidants.

Every morning when many of us look in the mirror we see something we want to improve. Whether it’s our shape, tone, or getting rid of love handles. Often this dissatisfaction leads to us down the road to vague goals of “getting fit” or “losing weight” and we grumble our way to a gym membership. Thanks to television and movies we have ideas of what strength training and exercise should look like, but for many people the reality doesn’t match the perception. We become discouraged when we can’t lift, run, or last as long as we think we should. We start to compare ourselves to the more physically fit of the gym goers and become discouraged in ourselves and stop going.
This is the wrong mindset, to say the least.
We’re constantly looking for ways to feel better, live longer, and improve memory. We jump from one fad diet to the next, or take up the newest and most exciting exercise. In other words, we are in a constant battle to find ways to improve our health. That is why we pick up gym memberships in January, making vows to workout and improve our overall heath. But we struggle, which is why we also cancel those same memberships in February.
Improving our health does not have to be the struggle we make it out to be. The American Heart Association suggests 30 minutes a day of exercise. If you haven’t been exercising, or are just starting this may seem like a daunting number to achieve, but any amount of physical activity will start to improve your health. If you are struggling look at 30 minutes as a goal to work to, not a place to start.
By getting your heart pumping you will be improving your mental health, reducing anxiety and depression, and helping to manage stress. Beginning a regular exercise regimen will also help prevent or manage high blood pressure, prevent bone loss, and improve sleep. Working to prevent many old age aliments now, rather than managing them later, will improve your quality of life in the present and in the future.
There are many things that age our bodies, and no amount of exercise can prevent them. As we age our bodies create more free radicals, or molecules that have unpaired electrons. These molecules can damage our cells creating oxidative stress, which can trigger many human diseases. This is where Carbon-60 comes in. This innovative carbon molecule can attach to these free radicals rendering them harmless. Carbon-60 is then passed through the body, leaving you feeling better with fewer free radicals to slow you down.
Start your journey to better heath by using Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil™ to help remove free radicals and reduce oxidative stress on your body. Don’t wait! Order your bottle today to start feeling better now!
If you’re living with frequent and constant back pain then life can be a challenge. Not only are you constantly uncomfortable, but it can distract you from work, home, family and even keep you from doing the things you really love. To top it all off, back pain can keep you from getting any sleep let alone a ‘good night’s rest’.
Often times when you have back pain you’ll cath yourself tossing and turning at night, continually waking up to adjust your body so the pain is bearable. Below are a few useful tips to ease your discomfort of night time back pain and discomfort:
Stretching allows your muscles to release toxins that would otherwise sit in your muscles causing tightening and soreness. Stretching your back with basic stretching exercises or certain back exercises, given to you by a physician, can help it stay relaxed through the night. Starting with relaxed back muscles will help to keep your back pain at ease while you’re sleeping.
Is sleeping on your stomach the only way you find comfortable to fall asleep or stay asleep? If so, this could be causing a lot of your night time back pain. This position can be very hard for your back and stressful on the muscles that cause your back pain. If you do need to sleep on your stomach, consider using a pillow under your pelvis to help keep your spine in it’s proper curve. The placing of a pillow under your pelvis/stomach area can relieve the stress and tension in your lower back.
The majority of people sleep on their side, be it left or right, this can have a negative effect on your spine. The reasoning behind this is that while sleeping on your side you are not giving the upper leg the support it needs, thus twisting the spine when the knee and the thigh inevitably fall forward to the mattress. Fortunately, putting a pillow between your upper to mid legs while sleeping can help to ease the back pain caused by the lack of support. Many people find this an easy fix and highly beneficial to easing and/or eliminating back pain while sleeping.
This could be the bad news, but many times the cause for your night back pain is a bad mattress. WebMD notes that if you have the budget, investing in a new mattress with greater back support can work wonders on your chronic back pain. The ideal mattress will keep your spine in a position similar to if you were standing straight up. Testing out a variety of mattresses is a great way to find the best fit for you, keeping in mind that a medium to firm mattress is usually the most beneficial to helping back support. Unfortunately, buying a new mattress is not always a plausible option. In this case try to find a mattress topper that may create more firm mattress to support your back during sleep.
