Life Enhancement, Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw, FastBlast, 1.3 lbs (588 g)12 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

- A Tasty, Natural Fruit-Flavored Brain Food for Really Fast, Smooth, Clear-Headed Energy
- A Dietary Supplement Drink Mix
FastBLAST is an energy-boosting Designer Food dietary supplement designed by Life Extension scientists Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw for their own use. Start your day with tasty, natural fruit-flavored FastBLAST for fast and long-lasting energy. FastBLAST fires up your brain naturally and jump-starts your day. It contains important ingredients for making, activating and using noradrenaline, an important neurotransmitter*:
- L - phenylalanine (an essential amino acid) and its cofactors and other nutrients your brain needs to produce noradrenaline, and
- Caffeine, which helps to release noradrenaline and increase sensitivity to its effects.
FastBLAST also works to help provide appetite satisfaction.* It contains only 52 calories per serving, about the same as 1/2 glass of skim milk.
* Normal and natural, noradrenaline is needed by some of your nerve cells to transmit information to one another.
For adults only. Place 1 tablespoon of mix in 4 to 8 ounces of cold water or fruit juice. Stir briskly and drink. Serve over ice for best flavor. Consume as desired, 1 to 3 times per day. For best results drink immediately upon awakening, on an empty stomach, or about 1 hour before a meal or usual snack time. Please read Caution statement below.
Natural flavors, silicon dioxide, malic acid, citric acid, fumaric acid.
Sealed for your protection
Caution: Do not consume more than 2.6 grams of supplemental phenylalanine per day.
Not for use by children or by pregnant or lactating women, persons with the genetic metabolic disorder PKU, psychosis, persons taking prescription MAO (monoamine oxidase) inhibitor drugs, pigmented malignant melanoma cancer patients, those with Wilson's Disease, or those who have a violent temper. Not for use by anyone sensitive to any of the ingredients.
Excessive consumption of L-phenylalanine or caffeine may cause insomnia, especially when taken in the late afternoon or evening. If insomnia occurs, reducing the amount consumed by 1/2 will usually correct the problem. If insomnia is a problem, we suggest drinking FastBlast only once per day for the first week, right after you arise in the morning. During the second week and thereafter, drink it twice per day, upon arising and an hour before lunch.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I wake ever morning in a fog. The very first thing I do (in fact, the thought of doing it gets me out of bed... even on weekends) is go mix up a glass of this and chug it down. As soon as the product hits my tongue the fog lifts (permanently for the rest of the day). Many many many times better than any "energy drink" I've ever tried (5-hour Energy is a distant second place to this) and cheaper too. Directions say you can take a second glass before lunch, but I usually don't need to. Just the initial kick from the first dose keeps me going all day on most days. I don't even think I could hold a job without this product. Thanks Durk and Sandy!
My wife and I have been using fast blast and other Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw formulas for years and they give you energy and clarity without jitters.
