It is less obvious a few days ago but now I can be sure that c60oo has been causing nasal mucus. I was coughing often with large dried nasal mucus buildup in my nose when I wake up. At first I thought it was the oil oil itself stimulating my throat. But I took a break on c60oo saturday and the mucus problem did not change.
On the other side there are quite a lot of good things. I am not waking up as early as the first one or two says but my sleep is better in general. Falling asleep is easier at day and at night, even with the breathing and coughing problem experienced. Also melatonin seems to be having less effect on me.
I've exerted myself somewhat yesterday and the PEM is there but lessened. My muscle is hurt to some degree but it seem to be healing fast and I am not feeling much pain.
There isn't much headache but my head doesn't feel much better than normal. It is more remarkable that I am not feeling much headache when I am doing things that will normally cause it.
I took 5ml yesterday and 5ml today, leaving less than 15ml of oil left. I am planning on using some cerebrolysin after consuming all of my c60oo to see if I can get some more benefit in terms of cognition out of this.
But when you have finished, it would be advisable to store the bottle in a place away from light, such as in a draw. What I did with my C60-OO was to wrap the bottle in aluminum foil, which is completely impervious to light.
I got my supplement, shipping was surprisingly fast! and have now tried it for a few days. (Half a teaspoon a day)
First time I took it, I got this feeling of brainfog lifting, but a few hours later it subsided and I got some weird sensation of burning in my skin (Worried its some kind of inflammation response?) Then I didn't notice much else... Maybe some less fatigue the next day.
My skin tone looks better however, so that's interesting. I'm not sure whether to try it longer or discontinue it because I fear the possible adverse effects. Wondering if it has some negative effect on methylation, but couldn't find any information about this.
Edit: I think I will try it for a week and then decide whether to stop or continue taking it.
14) Here's a sketchy hypotheses of how C60 might work:
Fullerenes wrapped in oil are transported to mitochondria for burning.
Once there, the oil is stripped and the naked fullerenes are attracted to other hydrophobic molecules, such as the methyl groups on the mitochondrial DNA, and reacts with them, stripping them from the DNA.
Demethylation of the DNA thus reverses the epigenetic DNA changes that result in dysfunction of the mitochondria
(16) Fullerenes are known to like methyl groups, and that they could steal them from DNA would certainly provide a tidy explanation of how this works.''
That doesn't really sound like a good thing for people that have low methylation, or maybe I am misunderstanding something? Is it just a temporary demethylation?
Hopefully someone can better explain this.
