119: This Weird Molecule Could Be the Key to Longevity – with Chris Burres

Meet the guy shaking up the longevity field: he’s a polymath who likes to make you laugh.

When the bespectacled Chris Burres wears a lab coat, he looks like a mad scientist. But don’t let that fool you! He’s a funny guy fascinated by many things. And like Elon Musk, Chris enjoys finding connections between the different areas he studies. One of his favorite subjects (and something Chris has devoted a lot of his career on) is longevity—precisely, the fantastic life span results surrounding a molecule called Carbon 60 (a.k.a. Buckyballs). 

When Chris realized a Nobel Prize-Winning chemical tested by NASA had shown to almost double the mammals’ lifespan, he decided to make C60 a household item.

Our host Wade Lightheart asks Chris some great questions that will help you wrap your head around C60 – what it is, how its extracted, and the health benefits people report after taking C60. 

Being a polymath, Chris’s other areas of interest include Mechanical Engineering, Comedy Improv, Oil and Gas Explosives, and Competitive Soccer, to name a few.

He’s also the co-host of the most popular internet marketing podcast on iTunes since 2009 – “The SEO Podcast – Unknown Secrets of Internet Marketing”. 

Chris is on a mission to help people live longer, healthier, and pain-free lives one serving of buckyballs at a time.

In this podcast, we cover:

  • How humor helps Chris as an entrepreneur and researcher
  • Why Chris started manufacturing C60 and how he does it
  • The difference between ESS 60 and C60
  • The famous rat study that shows 90% life extension for the rodents taking C60
  • The proper dose a human needs to see results with C60
  • How do you feel after taking C60?
  • The positive results Chris has experienced taking C60, along with several anecdotal testimonies

“You guys should run off and start a company manufacturing and selling this stuff.”

In 1990, Chris was a student at the University of Houston, where he met his business partner, working at the Texas Center for Superconductivity which affiliates with U of H. His friend was working on separating fullerenes at the time. The separated fullerenes (discussed further on the podcast) were selling for $6,000 a gram. 

One day a professor at the University of Houston named Dr. Chu encouraged Chris and his friend to start a business making and sell the separated fullerenes since it was so lucrative. 

Processing fullerenes requires vaporizing graphite rods using temperatures as hot as the sun’s surface! Not an easy thing to do without burning the building down. Chris’s future business partner ran with the professor’s idea to start a business and brought in Chris to oversee the equipment to manage those insanely high temperatures needed in the manufacturing process. Chris was majoring in mechanical engineering at the time, so he was a good fit. 

And the rest is history, as they say. Chris and his partner are still in business together, now providing C60 to humans and pets.

Great Buckyballs of Fire

Carbon 60 is affectionately called Buckyballs because when seen under a microscope the molecule is in the shape of a soccer ball. Its full name is Buckminsterfullerene – the most common naturally occurring fullerene. You can find small quantities of C60 in soot, and the molecule is detected in deep space. 

Chris shares how the C60 “Buckyball” molecule can fire at a steel plate at 15,000 miles per hour and it still maintains its shape, compressing and bouncing back. This molecule is incredibly resilient. Most molecules get shredded when fired at the steel that hard.

How does this benefit your health? There is so much more to discover about C60 – and Wade guides Chris through a fascinating interview where you will find the potential behind C60. 

Even cats and dogs benefit from buckyballs—Chris shares how your fur baby can begin a C60 protocol right along with you. 

Be sure to tune in if you want to not only live longer but also live stronger. What does a person gain by adding 20 years to their life if they spend those 20 years incapacitated, feeling lousy, and stuck in a nursing home? The Awesome Health Podcast is always about living a better life through optimized health, and C60 scientific studies are promising. Chris is an expert on not only C60 but how to take it as a supplement in a form that will maximize its power.
