The second clinical study on Fast-C™, a patent pending Vitamin C ingredient innovated by Scientific Food Solutions and distributed by E.T. Horn in partnership as Alkemy Partners, LLC, was presented today at the American College of Nutrition conference. The 50th Annual ACN conference is being held October 1 - 4, 2009 at the Hilton Hotel, Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida.
This most recent clinical trial, a double-blind, randomized crossover study, enrolled 10 male, non-smoking subjects, which is equivalent to a 20-person non-crossover study. It was conducted at Miami Research Associates, a US-based pharmaceutical and nutrition research facility employing Good Clinical Practices.
The study showed a significantly faster rise in blood Vitamin C in the first 90 minutes. Notably, despite the faster entry of Vitamin C into the blood with Fast-C™, urinary excretion was slightly less, suggesting excellent retention by tissues. The bioavailability comparison was to the leading Vitamin C formulation at a 1,000 mg single dose.
This is the second double blind, randomized crossover clinical trial on Fast-C™. The first trial, in 2007, was also conducted by MRA and presented in April, 2008 at the Experimental Biology scientific conference in San Diego. It included 5 male non-smoking subjects, equivalent to a 10-person study. It also showed significantly faster Vitamin C absorption time and equal retention.
Fast-C™ is a premium, faster absorbing and well-retained Vitamin C product. It utilizes a unique, patent-pending composition that provides a buffered and 90%+ acid neutralized Vitamin C, yielding an easily tolerated formulation that fosters greater compliance and delivers vitamin C with greater speed and excellent retention.
