I have 8 rats, four of which I have started on c60 already. I ordered c60 from Vaughter Wellness, so I am not interested in having any supplied to me or anything like that. I cannnot do a study with controls because they are dearly loved pets of mine. (I've started the first four now because they are the older ones) I signed only because I had read through a thread done with three mice and everyone seemed to be so interested in the results. I am excited myself in the potential of extending their lives. If all goes well with them my husband and I may try it eventually.

I have lots of data on the first four such as DOB and they've been weighed frequently along with medical history. These four are from a hobby breeder.

My second four are newer and I have approx ages. They are rescues.

All together I have two males, 6 females.

I've used three methods of giving them the oil, the best method is oil soaked bread. I chose a dose of 1.5ml per kg of rats weight, in contrast to the 1.7 in the study.

I'm spacing out the first seven doses over 14 days (every other day) instead of seven. After that I will mostly follow the schedule from the study. I have only given three doses so far.

If anyone is interested I'll continue adding here...

We're definitely interested, though you may have posted in the wrong subforum. The other C60 subforum seems to get all the attention these days.

If you read how AV's trial with 3 mice turned out, you will regret not having controls.
