F.A.S.T. is also available nationally on Amazon.
Most recently, F.A.S.T. launched its second offering, F.A.S.T. Upset Stomach Relief which contains liquid Calcium Carbonate – a proven antacid that neutralizes up to 8 times more acid than traditional Calcium Carbonate tablets.
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.
