How It Works

As your body ages, it loses its ability to fight the effects of free radicals. The result is more free radicals, which in turn causes more oxidative stress and more damage to cells.

Health experts agree that excessive free radicals and toxins are recognized as a significant contributor to the development of many health issues and are responsible for aging. Greska’s Carbon-60 protects against this damage, supporting healthy cell function.

Excessive free radicals are known to cause oxidative stress. Free radicals are molecules in your body, missing an electron. These electron-deficient molecules do not work properly and impair healthy bodily functions by stealing electrons from neighboring healthy cells. (Oxidative Stress)

Greska’s Carbon-60 provide electrons that stimulate an antioxidant response within your cells to stabilize damaging free radicals and neutralize toxins, halting the damaging chain reaction of oxidative stress.

Antioxidant Effects of Carbon 60

Perhaps the most touted beneficial property of Carbon 60 in biological systems is its ability to attenuate oxidative stress, especially at the level of the mitochondria, where the majority of “free radicals” ROS, aka Reactive Oxygen Species) are generated during the production of ATP.

The breakthrough with Greska’s Carbon-60, is that we able to convert our own Carbon 60 powder with our EXCLUSIVE process that is totally contaminant-free. We have the ONLY Carbon 60 production process with NO solvent and NO carbon rod contaminants.

Our process produces the Carbon 60 in a 20 nano-meter bio-compatible sphere of pure Carbon 60.  These very tiny Food Grade spheres of Carbon 60 are non-clustered, non-crystalline, and totally safe for you and your pet.

These small individual clean spheres of C60 are what makes Greska’s Carbon-60 so effective.  Whereas other products and antioxidants are much larger and only capable of scavenging free radicals in interstitial spaces of organs and tissues, or at best, the liquid cytosol (liquid within the cell). Our C60 molecules are small enough to pass thru cellular membranes to work at the mitochondrial level. This unique ability allows mitigation of damage from the ROS cascade right at their source… reducing an organism’s overall burden of oxidative stress and degenerative conditions.

More significantly, Carbon-60 is a more “intelligent” antioxidant than excessive amounts of vitamins C or E, in that C60 maintains a healthy “redox balance” thru “charge disproportionation” (aka “dismutation” thru the delocalized electrons in its lattice structure.  In this way, Carbon 60 performs better as an antioxidant due to its ability to optimize a cell’s “redox” reactions.

Although purely theoretical at this time, a number of computational studies suggest C60’s antioxidant effect may be due to the molecule’s ability to act as a mild “mitochondrial uncoupler.” This theory proposes that C60 can acquire a positive charge by becoming protonated with Hydrogen (H+) ions, enabling it to translocate across the mitochondrial membrane, favorably affecting the transmembrane potential, reducing the leakage of electrons along the Electron Transport Chain (ETC), and ultimately minimizing the production of ROS. Alternatively, several in-vitro studies, as well as live mouse studies, have demonstrated the ability of a carboxylated derivative of C60 to act as a Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) mimetic, catalyzing the highly reactive Superoxide radical to the less toxic hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and/or molecular oxygen (O2). More recent studies have shown that C60 may be a mild cellular stressor (much like resveratrol, curcumin, and green tea polyphenols), exerting its beneficial effects by activating the Nrf2-Keap1 pathway.
