C60 may combat metabolic syndrome and aid weight loss

Over a quarter of Americans and a fifth of those in the developed world have metabolic syndrome which dramatically increases the risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

What is metabolic syndrome?  

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions including;
  • fatty liver
  • insulin resistance with diabetic and pre-diabetic blood sugar levels
  • increased blood pressure, excess body fat especially around the waist
  • abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels.

Metabolic syndrome is very common in those on a processed food, high sugar diet. [1]

Fructose, which is found in many sweetened processed foods and most non-diet soft drinks, is a significant contributor. The use of high-fructose corn syrup as the sweetener of choice by the soft drinks industry has seen the daily consumption in Americans rise from 37g/day in the 1970's to 55g/day in the late 1980's and early 90's. [2]  

What are the complications of metabolic syndrome? 

These complications can result from metabolic syndrome and are frequently serious and can be long-term. They include: 

  • heart disease
  • liver damage (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease)
  • kidney disease
  • stroke
  • diabetes
  • hardening of the arteries

If you go on to develop diabetes, there are additional health complications that you may be at risk of, including:

  • eye damage (retinopathy)
  • nerve damage (neuropathy)
  • kidney disease
  • amputation of limbs

How can I prevent metabolic syndrome?

Research carried out in 2010 investigated C60 dissolved in squalane. [3]

Squalane is a hydrocarbon found in a number of substances including olive oil.

The researchers found that C60 dissolved in squalane inhibited the formation of fat cells. From their research, they proposed that C60 dissolved in squalane had potential as a treatment for metabolic syndrome.

Try C60 in olive oil for yourself.
