First Aid Shot Therapy® (F.A.S.T.) Revolutionizes Upset Stomach Relief with New Single-Dose OTC Liquid Shot

Company Launches Second Innovative Offering to Accompany 'Pain Relief' Formula

SEATTLE, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- First Aid Shot Therapy, makers of First Aid Shot Therapy Pain Relief, today announced the launch of its newest offering, First Aid Shot Therapy Upset Stomach. Upset Stomach is the second variant to be launched in the F.A.S.T. range of products and it is formulated to relive upset stomach symptoms. It comes in a great-tasting, smooth, ready-to-drink, liquid shot form, which starts to work immediately.

First Aid Shot Therapy - Upset Stomach Relief  and Pain with New Single-Dose OTC Liquid Shot

F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief, contains Calcium Carbonate – a proven antacid that works by directly neutralizing stomach acid – in a formula similar to that used in hospitals. To ensure a great-tasting formula, F.A.S.T. is formulated with natural peppermint and ginger flavors along with a hint of chocolate for smoothness. Upset Stomach helps relieve heartburn, sour stomach, acid indigestion, and upset stomach associated with these symptoms that may be caused by stomach acid. Each 1.15 fl. oz. (34 ml) bottle is a single dose, and may be taken every 3-4 hours if symptoms persist.

"Felling sick never comes at the right time; it's usually while you're least expecting it, not when you're standing in front of your medicine cabinet," said Mary Page Platerink, co-founder and CEO of First Aid Shot Therapy. "With F.A.S.T. we're able to provide people with a quick, simple, no-mess, single-dose of relief that allows them to manage their health in a convenient and innovative way."

Earlier this year, First Aid Shot Therapy launched First Aid Shot Therapy Pain Relief. A single-dose, over the counter liquid shot that relieves pain. F.A.S.T. Pain Relief contains choline salicylate and caffeine and is formulated to start working immediately and deliver effective relief for your pain.

FAST Upset Stomach offers a one shot dose of Liquid Relief® that has several major benefits for people suffering from heartburn and indigestion:

  • It starts working immediately (more than 250x more quickly that calcium tablets!)*
  • It's liquid calcium carbonate formulation neutralises up to 8 x more acid than traditional calcium carbonate tablets*
  • It comes in a convenient one shot dose
  • It tastes great
  • So F.A.S.T Upset Stomach truly is faster medicine!

F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief is medication that provides quick Liquid Relief® to upset stomachs so busy people can live their lives uninterrupted and not get side-lined by indigestion and heartburn, it is not a beverage or energy drink. F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief is not just a combination of FDA-compliant ingredients, but also every step of F.A.S.T.'s manufacturing, sourcing and ingredients comply with all aspects and requirements of the FDA.

F.A.S.T. products can be purchased in the greater Seattle area at retailers including Bartell Drugs, Haggen/Top Foods, Barnes & Noble College Bookstores and online at Amazon.com. They are also rolling out in Boston in the Tedeschi chain and several other partners.

About F.A.S.T.
Like many other successful companies before it, First Aid Shot Therapy® (F.A.S.T.) was born when two really smart people were introduced and started talking. That conversation was in the Bay Area in 2010, when Mary Page Platerink, former Director of Global Strategy for The Coca-Cola Company, met Dr. Jay Pasricha, M.D., then Head of Gastroenterology at Stanford University. With Mary Page's understanding of consumer behavior and Dr. Pasricha's knowledge of pain and upset stomach treatment, they began talking about products that could deliver fast, effective relief for people's most common ailments. And that's how F.A.S.T. was born. The company operates under the guidance of the F.A.S.T. Scientific Advisory Board, which is led by Dr. Jay Pasricha and made up of doctors from Johns Hopkins University and The Mayo Clinic. F.A.S.T. products are developed in the U.S.A. at F.A.S.T. Labs, based in Woburn, Mass. The F.A.S.T. advisory board is made up of some of the most senior consumer advisory and product executives from around the world, including Susan Arnold, board member, Walt Disney and McDonald's; Doug Haensel, former CFO at Burt's Bees; Ellen Marram, former President and CEO of Tropicana Products; Eric Meyer, former Vice President of Marketing at Sonicare; Mary Minnick, partner at Lion Capital and former Chief Marketing, Strategy, and Innovation Officer at the Coca-Cola Company.
