  • Fast-C® with Dihydroquercetin
  • 120 vegetarian tablets
  • Item Catalog Number: 01717

Vitamin C efficacy can be limited because it is quickly utilized and excreted by the body. A novel formula sets the new standard for rapid absorption, enhancing the time that vitamin C is delivered to the cells. 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—without greater excretion!

Benefits at a Glance

  • Vitamin C is essential for many reactions throughout the body
  • Fast-C® is absorbed faster than leading brands
  • Includes acid-neutralizing minerals
  • Bioperine® enhances absorption
  • Dihydroquercetin regenerates vitamin C

Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals,1-4 supports biosynthesis of certain neurotransmitters,5-6 and promotes production of vitamin tissue (collagen) that supports arterial walls, skin, and bones.4-6 Vitamin C promotes immunity,4,7 boosts lymphocyte glutathione levels,8 and helps regenerate other antioxidants, including vitamin E.9

But because it leaves the body quickly,10 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® with Dihydroquercetin 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 multi-patented black pepper alkaloid that significantly accelerates vitamin C absorption, shortening the time to peak plasma concentration.11
  • Dihydroquercetin, a grape leaf derived flavonoid that donates electrons back to vitamin C molecules that have spent their electrons neutralizing free radicals — regenerating vitamin C to work again!12
