C60 - Longevity Now

There is strong scientific evidence to support the view that taking C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal can extend your life span! In one animal study, Dr V. V. Frolkis, a famous Russian gerontologist, and his colleagues, demonstrated that the lifespan in laboratory rats increased up to 34% by feeding them charcoal in their diet. Toxins, including free radicals, are believed to play a significant role in ageing, but these 'loose cannons' will form a stable matrix with charcoal in the gut until they are eliminated from the body.

Researchers concluded that the binding up of these toxins in the intestinal tract before they are absorbed or reabsorbed into the system may be one mechanism that allowed the animals to live longer and healthier. Both clinical observations of patients in hospitals and numerous animal studies have demonstrated that charcoal poses no threat to nutritional uptake. The human body produces a balancing factor of high alkalinity which is bicarbonate (HCO3). Bicarbonate keeps the blood alkaline. In 1996, Dr. Lynda Frassetto of the University of California, San Francisco, published a paper showing how bicarbonate levels in human blood vary with age. The average bicarbonate level is constant until the age of 45, after which a noticeable decline begins. Physical ageing occurs when bicarbonate in the blood decreases. As these levels decrease the body is less able to neutralise acid which accumulates as cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, kidney stones etc.

the difference between c60 charcoal and activated charcoal

C60 in Hardwood Charcoal

Ancient Purity's C60 Charcoal capsules contain a fine granular charcoal that is made from a special hardwood. This hardwood naturally contains C60 Fullerene Molecules. The scientific process in the creation of this product enhances the bio-availability of the C60 molecule to living systems. So it is in its natural form to allow the adsorptive properties of the charcoal, in combination with the C60 and the other elements it all works tohether assisting your body in absorbing nutrients, removing toxins and strengthening the immunity.

C60 Olive Oil is a relatively new product and personally we haven't seen enough evidence longterm to say the C60 Olive Oil product is effective. The C60 Hardwood Charcoal Capsules are not made from 'activated' charcoal. Also I have personally chatted in some forums about the Olive Oil C60. Some people do believe it to actually be harmful. Anyway I don't want to bad mouth any products and people have got good stories about its results. It is just we have decided to stock C60 Capsules, it is an incredible product.

Teeth Whitening

charcoal teeth whitening

Charcoal is one of the biggest trends in the world of wellness and cosmetics. It’s become a trendy ingredient in commercial face masks and scrubs, and some people also swear by it for whitening their teeth.

Activated Charcoal, the type used in many beauty products and toothpaste is a fine grain powder made from wood, coconut shells, and other natural substances that are oxidized under extreme heat.

There are many charcoal toothpaste products available online and in most drugstores today. It’s highly absorbent, and it’s used medically to absorb and remove toxins.

C60 Capsules can be opened up and used on your toothbrush. There are lots of new products with Charcoal in promising white teeth.

With use of these capsules you get a super economic and pure teeth whitening tool.

Go beyond and use C60 Charcoal with Pure Bicarbonate of Soda to make a powerful combination that can help you whiten your teeth in just one minute.

So why not pull a capsule open and see the results for yourself, you can also purchase Pure Bicarbonate of Soda on ancientpurity.com. It’s important to protect your teeth by using products that won’t wear down enamel. Since overuse of activated charcoal can lead to teeth erosion, use them cautiously. 

We should avoid using regular charcoal sold in shops to avoid chemicals; charcoal which is sold at shops normally has chemicals which help to retain their shape as well as maintain a fire burning at a steady temperature.

When it comes to charcoal for teeth whitening make sure that you go all natural, there is no need to repeat this process more than once a week to maintain that sparkling white smile.

C60 - Weight Loss & Detox

C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal removes toxins that are competing with nutrients for intestinal and cellular absorption. This action promotes more efficient nutrient uptake. This means that the cells become better nourished and more healthy. As their cellular performance improves, people either lose or gain weight before stabilising at their “home” or optimum weight at that time. This phenomenon remarked upon by many of our clients, is very important at a time when many people are obese. Whilst we don’t have any published data on this effect, yet we can confidently say that if you take C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal regularly you will see an improvement in your weight either up or down as your body stabilises at a healthier optimum.

Richard C. Kaufman BS, MS, PhD (Bio-Nutritional Chemistry from the University of Brussels) has written extensively in the field of anti-ageing. He writes, "detoxification is an ongoing biological process that prevents toxins (from infectious agents, food, air, water and substances that contact the skin) from destroying health. Chronic exposure to toxins produces cellular damage, diverse diseases, allergic-like reactions, compromised immunity and premature ageing." ( JOURNAL OF THE MEGAHEALTH SOCIETY - July 1989 THE UNIVERSAL ANTIDOTE AND DETOXIFIER THAT EXTENDS LIFE: ACTIVATED CHARCOAL by Richard C. Kaufman, Ph.D.s) The Charcoal supports and enhances daily detoxification. Detoxification is a continuous biological process that prevents toxins (from infectious agents and our ever more polluted environment e.g. in our food, air and water) from destroying our health. Daily, continual, hard-to-avoid exposure to toxins produces cellular damage, a whole range of diseases, allergic reactions, intolerances, weakened immune systems and premature ageing.

C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal's Detox Effects

  • It purifies the 6 to 8 litres of digestive fluids that are secreted daily, which in turn helps remove foreign substances from the blood.
  • It bonds with and neutralises the toxins and their metabolites. These are then excreted into the small intestine from the biliary (bile) tract, preventing their reabsorption into the body.
  • It bonds with and neutralises any drugs that diffuse back into the stomach and the intestines.

Doctors sometimes use activated charcoal if people have ingested certain poisons. The charcoal binds to the poison in the upper digestive tract, preventing the gut from absorbing it. Charcoal comes from burning carbon-rich material, such as wood, to produce a fine, black substance. Manufacturers then treat the charcoal to make it more porous. Increasing its surface area in this way allows more substances to bind to it. This treatment is what makes the charcoal “activated.” The next stage of manufacturing involves making the powder into a beverage. Activated charcoal can only bind to certain substances. For this reason, it can only help prevent the effects of specific poisons.

Digestion & Gut Health

Historically Charcoal has been used to restore healthy gut function; many generations used it as the go-to remedy for digestive complaints long before patented drugs came on the scene, and 'activated' or 'medicinal' charcoal is still used today in the emergency treatment of certain kinds of poisoning. C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal gently adsorbs toxins as it travels through the gut, simply removing them from the digestive system via the stool. When taken with ample water (to reduce the risk of dehydration), C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal calms and conditions the gut, eases bloating, gas and associated discomfort; improves skin complexion; can be used on insect bites; when added to toothpaste it is an effective tooth-whitener. 

The naturally active C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal can help fight fungal infections caused by yeast. It bonds with many of the toxins that fungal yeast infections produces that would otherwise be absorbed by the blood and carried throughout the body. These toxins produce damaging changes in tissues and the function of body organs and the immune function. Toxins produced by these infections can also trigger allergic reactions. C60 Pure Hardwood Charcoal can also help with fungal infections caused by yeast by counteracting the 'Herxheimer Reaction' - a severe, short-term exacerbation of fungal infection symptoms caused by the copious amount of toxins produced by dying yeast cells as a result of a successful treatment. This is extremely important because the 'Herxheimer Reaction' can often be so unpleasant that patients abandon treatment before completion. Anything which helps patients stay the course is invaluable. It can also inhibit the growth of other intestinal yeasts.

Harnessing the Power of Nature

C60 Hardwood Charcoal... Closing Thoughts

Activated Hardwood Charcoal Powder is created from hardwood burned at high temperatures, according to the National Capital Poison Center (Poison Control) Health practitioners administer activated charcoal to persons who have been poisoned or overdosed with certain drugs. The fine powder is usually mixed with water and taken by the patient or administered through a feeding tube to clean out the gastrointestinal tract as an alternative to pumping the stomach. The Activated Charcoal works like a sponge; toxin particles bind to the surface of the activated charcoal so that the poison is less likely to be absorbed into the body. This functions best with toxins containing organic particles. Depending on the kind of toxin or overdose, a single dose of activated charcoal can be an extremely effective treatment if provided rapidly enough.

Activated Charcoal is commonly found in water filtration systems as well, air filters and respiratory masks. Just as it removes toxins from your body, activated charcoal binds and attracts to contaminants in air and water including: solvents, radon, fuels and numerous radioactive and industrial chemicals. In addition, it protects us against ingesting or breathing them, according to the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency). Saying it simple, Activated Charcoal’s negatively charged, porous texture aids trap toxins, preventing your body from absorbing them.

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.
