Life Extension and Scientific Food Solutions Create FAST-C®

FORT LAUNDERDALE, Fla.Life Extension and Scientific Food Solutions have partnered up to create FAST-Cinnovation®, an ingredient that combines an absorbing ascorbic acid mineral blend and Sabinsa Corp.'s black pepper extract BioPerine®.

According to Life Extension, FAST-C® features a proprietary blend of alkalizing minerals that is an almost completely acid-neutralized formula made for sensitive stomachs. The formulation also includes Sabinsa's BioPerine®, a multi-patented, black pepper extract that significantly accelerates vitamin C absorption, shortening the time to peak plasma concentration and dihydroquercetin.

In an unpublished study, researchers at Miami Research Associates concluded that 60 minutes into the FAST-C composition generated a significantly higher vitamin C blood increase than a leading, enhanced-absorption vitamin C product. A second clinical trial was also conducted to compare two different variations of the formula in FAST-C with another leading, enhanced brand. One of the FAST-C formulations produced higher blood concentrations of vitamin C after 30, 60 and 90 minutes.

Dietary supplement consumers rated Life Extension first in three categories in the 2013 Survey of Vitamin and Supplement users. Life Extension received top ratings in the CoQ10 and multivitamin products and, for the second year in a row, was rated No. 1 catalog/internet supplement brand.
