C60, also known as fullerene or buckminsterfullerene, is a Nobel-prize winning molecule. It was discovered by Sir Harold Kroto, Richard Smalley and Robert Curl in 1985, after an 11-day experiment vaporising graphite with a laser to produce carbon clusters. In 1996, the trio were awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for their discovery of C60, due to its high stability and asymmetry.
C60 are carbon nanoparticles with unique physicochemical and biological properties. It consists of 60 carbon atoms, positioned at the vertices of 20 regular hexagons and 12 pentagons, to form a symmetrical hollow sphere of less than one nanometre in diameter. This means C60 is one of the smallest molecules on Earth.
Carbon is a necessary component for all life on earth. C60 helps the body replace four important antioxidants that decrease with the body’s aging process; CoenzymeQ10, Glutathione, Catalase and Superoxide Dismutase. These antioxidants are crucial for the energy production of cells.
Organic Reflection occurs on three levels of consciousness – mind, body, and spirit. Our unique C60 blend has various scientifically-proven benefits for each of these levels.
