Fast-C and Bio-Quercetin Phytosome


Suitable for Vegetarians


Life Extension FAST-C®and Bio-Quercetin Phytosome provides vitamin C in a fast delivery system with rapid absorption.

Vitamin C efficacy can be limited because it is quickly utilized and excreted by the body. A novel formula sets a new standard for rapid absorption, enhancing the time that vitamin C is delivered for cellular protection.

In two human trials at a distinguished research center, FAST-C® was compared head-to-head with a leading premium brand of œenhanced absorptionvitamin C. Their findings validate that FAST-C® has faster absorption”and without greater excretion.

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 vitamin C™s optimal benefits has required taking supplements several times daily, hoping they™ll be effective without posing a risk for acid-sensitive stomachs. The scientific community has long sought faster-absorbing vitamin C formulas.

FAST-C®and Bio-Quercetin Phytosome is the only vitamin C product to incorporate:

  • A proprietary blend of alkalizing minerals that yields an almost completely acid-neutralized (which is better than œbuffered vitamin C for sensitive stomachs.
  • Piperine (Bioperine®), a multipatented, black pepper alkaloid that significantly accelerates vitamin C absorption, shortening the time to peak plasma concentration.
  • Bio-Quercetin Phytosome -Life Extension™s innovative bio-quercetin ingredient in this supplement is encased in a phytosome, or a tiny phospholipid sphere that makes it up to 50 times more bioavailable than traditional quercetin.
