112 Chris Burres: Can Antioxidant Activity of a Unique Nobel Prize Winning Molecule Promote Longevity

Jul 10, 2023 | Podcast Episode

THIS EPISODE OF GROWING OLDER LIVING YOUNGER highlights a unique carbon nano molecule, a C60 fullerene, that potentially may enhance longevity and promote healthy aging.  This carbon molecule was so significant that the discovery earned three scientists the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Now it appears that it might play a major role in protecting key antioxidants in the body.

Today’s Featured Expert is scientist and entrepreneur, Chris Burres. Chris has an extensive background in a diverse range of areas including Mechanical Engineering,  Oil and Gas Explosives, Comedy Improv Artist, and Competitive Soccer. In 1991 he founded the first company to deliver carbon nano materials and two years later, he earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Houston.
Chris is the co-founder of MyVitalC  company. When he realized that one of the chemicals he sold, ESS60, the subject of the aforementioned Chemistry Nobel Prize, had been shown to significantly increase the lifespan of mammals, he struggled with the moral implications of marketing ESS60, as a supplement. So today’s conversation will hopefully range from carbon chemistry, carbon nano materials specifically fullerenes, to the potential human benefits of these antioxidants and ethics of supplement marketing.
