Life Extension, Fast-C with Dihydroquercetin, 120 Veggie Tabs1 Review
Expiration Date: Jul 2016
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.

Fast-C with Dihydroquercetin
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 its optimal benefits has required taking supplements several times daily, hoping they'll be effective without posing a risk for acid-sensitive stomachs.
This next-generation FAST-C supplement has been proven in double-blind, human trials to have faster absorption—combined with equal or greater body retention! And it contains dihydroquercetin to enhance vitamin C’s “recycling” power.
FAST-C with Dihydroquercetin is the only vitamin C product to incorporate:
The alkalizing minerals that yield an almost completely acid neutralized (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.
Dihydroquercetin, a flavonoid from grape leaf extract that donates electrons back to vitamin C molecules that have spent their electrons neutralizing free radicals—regenerating vitamin C to work again!
In two human trials, FAST-C was compared head-to-head with a leading premium brand of “enhanced absorption” vitamin C. In the first trial scientists found that in just 60 minutes the FAST-C composition generated a “significantly higher” vitamin C blood increase in humans than the leading, enhanced-absorption vitamin C product.
