If reaping benefits like boosted cognitive function, reduced oxidative stress and inflammation sounds appealing to you, you may want to consider a water-based C60 supplement.
The fact that you are here reading this post means you have taken your first steps towards understanding how C60 can change your life and improve it for the better.
The chance at improving a condition like inflammatory arthritis has probably caught your attention and you are wanting to learn more as you consider adding a supplement to your daily routine. If you’ve looked at the market, you are probably confused by the number of options in front of you and do not know where to start. Before making a decision, it is important to know that the difference between many C60 supplements stems from the carrier used to deliver the molecule to you, the receiver.
Because C60 is not found naturally in any foods, it needs to be made in a lab using specialized equipment. It also cannot be simply consumed given that it is a small molecule, which means it must be added to something in order for you to use it.
The main two carriers of C60 molecules on the market are oil and water, with oil being the most common option available to consumers. Many of these products use an oil such as olive, coconut, or avocado oil in order to carry C60 molecules to and through your body. The reason for this is simple: initial knowledge of C60 led many to believe that C60 was not soluble in water. This, however, is not true.
It was widely believed that when left in water, C60 molecules would clump together and lose a couple of the unique properties they offer through their shape (such as reducing oxidative stress by working as a strong antioxidant).

In some cases, solutions of C60 in oil can be toxic when degraded through exposure to light. Recent studies also point to the fact that oil based C60 supplements aren’t actually that effective [https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11357-020-00292-z].
In order to combat these risks, recent developments have allowed for C60 supplements using water as the carrier to be achieved. This is even more important given that our bodies are up to 60% water, and using a water-based supplement falls more in line with being natural as opposed to oil.
The dependence on oil as a carrier has limited C60’s application in research and sort of created a ceiling for how helpful it can be to people. Having a water-based C60 supplement provides you with major advantages over alternative options, with the most notable being effectiveness and efficiency.
Water-soluble C60 derivatives have shown to work as highly effective inhibitors to enzymes linked to a number of diseases. For example, acetylcholinesterase is an enzyme that has shown increased activity in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients, which makes C60 an attractive target for possible treatment. Water-soluble C60 derivatives have shown better affinities for the binding sites of similar enzymes than the native ligands associated to them which could make them better inhibitors than other drugs (Junaid, 2016). [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4735121/]. This highlights the promise of therapeutic C60 use against a wide range of diseases.
Regarding efficiency, a C60 molecule capable of dissolving in water is a more efficient method of reaping the benefits of C60 because more of it can reach the bloodstream. For example, imagine wanting to pick some of your favorite fruit from a garden. On your first trip, you decided to take a basket filled with holes with you and you fill it up. By the time you got back inside your house, many of the fruits were lost because of the holes in the basket. On your second trip, you take a sturdy basket without any holes, and when you got back home you didn’t lose any of the fruits you took with you. This best draws a picture of the benefit you get from choosing a water-based supplement that will get you all of the C60 that you are expecting. When you take into consideration all of the healing and boosting properties granted by C60, it makes it a no-brainer to choose the option that can make more of an impact on your life immediately.
