C60 Hardwood Charcoal Lowdown

Activated Charcoal is the ultimate detoxifier. It binds to any toxins or chemicals in order to prevent our bodies from absorbing them. Because the substance is so porous, lots of different substances are able to bind to it. As a fantastic detoxifier, Ancient Purity C60 Hardwood Charcoal is also a wonderful digestion aid. It’s commonly used in beauty products to improve the skin, as well as whitening products meant to whiten teeth.

This refreshing smoothie is the perfect balance of detoxifying, healthy ingredients!

Q: I read about C60. From what I understand it must be mixed in oil for full absorption. However I am still trying to pin point the scientific difference between c60 charcoal and its health benefits and the carcinogenic effects of chimney soot and ash from Barbeque cooking. Cigarette smoke ash also is high in carcinogen so why does C60 charcoal not have those bad effects?
A: The simple answer in relation to C60 only (not activated charcoal or medicinal charcoal, which C60 is NOT, we cannot speak for these products that we don’t sell, but we imagine the ‘chemistry’ to be very similar), is that it cannot be carcinogenic for the simple reason that it does not break up in the digestive tract and become absorbed into the bloodstream in any way whatsoever. It simply travels undigested through the digestive tract and out the other end, expelling with it toxins that it has drawn out of your system. It does not offer anything to the body either nutritionally or detrimentally, and therefore cannot cause cellular changes in your body, and serious health problems are the result of cellular mutation.

The illustration below shows how Charcoal will adsorb the toxins and pathogens in the gut and continue on its travels with them, preventing them from being absorbed through the gut lining into the bloodstream. 

We would argue that C60 does not need to be in olive oil to offer benefits to the body. When we are experiencing such beneficial results from a natural source of C60, why would we need the added complication of olive/any other oil? Here is an article which is slightly worrying about C60 in oil,: http://www.weyburnreview.com/news/local-news/comp-grad-leads-research-1.2261882, and a forum which discusses it: http://www.longecity.org/forum/topic/87625-commercially-available-c60-olive-oil-causing-tumours/

We cannot vouch for either the C60 suspended in olive oil products, not activated or medicinal charcoal. We hope you will come to the conclusion that a pure, natural, hardwood charcoal in the form that animals in the wild and our ancestors would have had is the safest, gentlest method of taking in a high level of naturally-occurring C60 in a way that is compatible to the human makeup, without burning a hole in your pocket.

Q: I must say that I doubt that no charcoal gets in the bloodstream. All C60 manufacturers claim that C60 is readily absorbed due to its very small atomic size structure. Almost everything consumed travels through the bloodstream and has some level of absorption and it is through the blood pathways that C60 is carried into the cells where it binds to toxins, neutralises free radicals and is then removed from the system. I contacted Bob Greska who sells C60 in sunflower seed oil. He states that he thinks that the industrial grade C60 tested in that article probably had toluene a chemical carcinogenic preservative added to it. Greska states that his C60 is not exposed to light in the production process. 

If there are other differences between Greskas C60 and your charcoal, I would like to further my understanding and clarification on this issue. I am still interested in the charcoal that you sell and if it is pure C60 or if not then what is the exact makeup of your product?
A: We don’t doubt that the C60 fullerenes suspended in olive oil or any other oil you refer to are absorbed into the bloodstream, that is clearly how those products are designed, however, when we said that C60 travels through the system and doesn’t get absorbed into the bloodstream we were referring to C60 alone and possibly other charcoal (not carbon) in its charcoal form, not as the isolated fullerene atom. If you open a C60 capsule, you will see it is very different to the C60 powder that is suspended in olive oil. The charcoal pieces are actually quite large, if you bite them they crunch, and look like shards of brittle burnt wood - even a bit shiny – because that is what they are. They are burnt hardwood particles, not pure carbon in atomic size, and the composition is solely burnt hardwood from sustainable sources which naturally contains a very high level of C60 fullerenes. The only other contents in the capsule are sometimes tiny quartz-like pieces, again which travel through the system without being absorbed through the gut wall, and these are formed when the wood is burnt from the minerals that have been drawn up from deep underground (our wood has extremely deep roots which draw up nutrients and minerals from deep underground) and fuse together in such high temperatures. These are harmless, but if you were to open a capsule they are lighter in colour than the wood itself and so can sometimes be spotted. This just goes to demonstrate the purity of the hardwood we are using and how unadulterated it is – they are impossible to filter out, and it is unnecessary to do so. Our charcoal even differs from activated charcoal brands which are on the market and also very finely powdered. If you add activated charcoal to water, it disperses quite nicely and makes a black drink. If you add our charcoal to water, the water will turn slightly grey, but you will mostly see each particle of charcoal floating around or floating on top and you have to stir it vigorously for drinking. That’s the difference, and that’s why our charcoal passes through the system, attracting the toxins to it, and taking it out of the system.

Q: Is this pure C60?
A: This is a Pure Hardwood Charcoal which contains a relatively high level of C60 naturally. It's not pure C60 as that is extremely expensive - vacuum oven dried C60 for example, which burns off the solvents used in the processing costs $195 for just a single gram. This is not pure C60 fullerenes, you're right. Aside from the pure hardwood, the capsule is made from potato starch. That’s it, pure hardwood in a potato starch capsule, nothing more, nothing less.
