Life Extension FAST-C supplement has been shown in double-blind, human trials to have faster absorptioncombined with equal or greater body retention! And it contains dihydroquercetin to enhance vitamin C' recycling power.
In two human trials, FAST-C was compared head-to-head with a leading premium brand of enhanced absorption vitamin C. In the first trial scientists found that in just 60 minutes the FAST-C composition generated a significantly higher vitamin C blood increase in humans than the leading, enhanced-absorption vitamin C product.
The second clinical trial compared two variations of the formula in FAST-C with the leading enhanced brand and found that one of the FAST-C formulations produced higher blood concentrations of vitamin C after 30, 60, and even 90 minutes!
These findings validate that FAST-C has faster absorption than the leading enhanced brand without greater excretion suggesting similar or better vitamin C retention by the body.
Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, supports biosynthesis of certain neurotransmitters and promotes production of vital tissue (collagen) that supports arterial walls, skin, and bones. Vitamin C promotes immunity, boosts lymphocyte glutathione levels, and helps regenerate other antioxidants, including vitamin E. But because it leaves the body quickly, capturing its optimal benefits has required taking supplements several times daily, hoping theyll be effective without posing a risk for acid-sensitive stomachs.
