Carbon 60 (C60) for Dogs

c60 for dogs

Carbon 60, also known as C60 or fullerene, is a molecule that has been gaining attention in the world of pet health and wellness. C60 has piqued the interest of dog owners seeking alternative and natural remedies for their furry companions. There are many reasons why people might want to give their pet Carbon 60, including to support energy levels, promote longevity, and support a healthy inflammatory response.

In this article, we'll delve deeper into what C60 is and how it works, and we’ll share some positive outcomes people have reported after giving C60 oil regularly to their canine companions. So, whether you're a seasoned C60 user or a curious dog owner seeking more information, read on to discover all you need to know about C60 for dogs.


How C60 Supports Pet Health

Carbon 60 is a molecule made up of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a unique spherical shape. There is some evidence to suggest that C60 can support pet health in a few different ways.

Firstly, C60 has antioxidant properties, meaning it can help to neutralize free radicals in the body.1 Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to cells and tissues and are associated with a range of health issues, including inflammation and other issues associated with aging. By neutralizing free radicals in the body, C60 may help to protect pets from common problems that creep up as pets age.

Secondly, C60 has been shown to help support a balanced inflammatory response which may lead to better energy and mobility and, for some pets, may even contribute to increased longevity.2

 Finally, there is some research that suggests that C60 may also support immune function and promote healthy aging in pets. It is thought to help boost the activity of immune cells and improve the body's ability to fight off infections and disease.3

Can C60 increase your dog’s energy?

Some studies have suggested that C60 may improve mitochondrial function, which is the primary site of energy production in cells.

Mitochondria are organelles that produce energy in the form of ATP. However, this process can be disrupted by factors such as oxidative stress or age-related damage, which can lead to decreased energy production and cellular dysfunction.

C60 promotes energy production and mitochondria efficiency by neutralizing oxidative stress and enhancing ATP production.4

Many dog owners have reported positive outcomes with C60…

“I ordered C60 Power for my dog. We’ve tried lots of things, but nothing has worked like C60! She isn't limping anymore, and her sass is off the charts! Thank you, C60 Power!” ❤️ - Cherine Pack

“It’s been especially great for my 16-year-old dog. She was failing and got way better after getting the C60.” - Mary O.

“I have a 12-year-old Australian shepherd. He was on his way out and couldn't keep food down. I started giving him 2 droppers full of C60 oil in chicken broth every day. He has fully recovered from whatever it was that was making him sick. He had problems with his hips, and now he gets around pretty well. I recommend C60 to everyone.” - Lori Duran

Which C60 oil to give your dog, and how much?

Regarding C60 for pets, C60 in MCT Coconut Oil is fine to give to cats, but if you give it to a dog, it might cause digestive issues. We recommend the C60 for Pets in Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Avocado Oil for dogs.

Here is the recommended dosage, or C60 serving size, for pets according to their weight, but we always recommend consulting with your vet before adding a new supplement to their protocol:

Weight (lbs) | Dose

0-25 lbs = 1/4 tsp

26-50 lbs = 1/2 tsp

50-100 lbs = 1 tsp

100+ lbs = 1 tsp per 100 lbs

Another factor to consider is your pet’s age. If you have an elderly pet, you may want to increase their daily intake of C60—up to double the recommended amount in the chart above. As pets age, their need for antioxidants increases because their cell's own natural production of antioxidants declines.


In summary, adding a powerful antioxidant like Carbon 60 to your dog’s diet may help support their overall health and well-being in several ways. C60 supports a balanced inflammatory and immune response, increased energy, and healthy aging in pets. And there is scientific evidence that suggests that C60 may support longevity as well. In addition, C60 can help support joint health, hormone balance, and mood.

Here are some frequently asked questions about C60 for dogs:

1. What is C60? C60 is a molecule composed of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a soccer ball shape. It is also known as fullerene or buckminsterfullerene. Its unique shape gives it powerful antioxidant properties, and scientists have nick-named it a “free radical sponge.”

2. Is C60 safe for dogs? C60 has been found to be non-toxic even at levels 10,000 times the usual dosage.

3. How does C60 work in the body? C60 works by acting as a powerful antioxidant, addressing oxidative stress in the body, and promoting a balanced inflammatory response.

4. What are the potential benefits of C60 for dogs? C60 may help to support dogs with serious health conditions by addressing oxidative stress and protecting healthy cells from damage caused by treatments.

5. How do I give my dog C60? You can give your dog C60 oil orally or add it to their food. Many dog owners choose to put C60 oil in their dog’s food and report that their dogs love it.

6. Are there any side effects of giving my dog C60? C60 studies have not reported any adverse effects when using individually dissolved molecules of C60 in oil. This is the only kind of C60 used in C60 Power products.


1. C60 is characterized as a “free radical sponge” with an antioxidant efficacy several hundred-fold higher than conventional antioxidants.

2. C60 was found to promote a healthy inflammatory response.

3. C60 was found to enhance the production of immune cells, such as lymphocytes (white blood cells).

4. C60 promotes energy production and mitochondria efficiency by neutralizing oxidative stress and enhancing ATP production.
