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 enhanced absorption vitamin 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 buffered 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.
