New, No-Swallow Fasprin(R) Reduces Problems Associated with Daily Aspirin Regimen
Date:11/13/2007

Fast-dissolve method uses the latest advancement in aspirin delivery

technology.

CLEVELAND, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Improvita Health Products, Inc. has rolled out Fasprin(R), a patented, 81 milligram aspirin tablet that dissolves rapidly in the mouth instead of in the stomach, offering an effective, simplified solution for the millions of Americans who maintain a daily aspirin routine and worry about gastrointestinal bleeding or swallowing pills.

A daily low-dose aspirin therapy is commonly prescribed to adults to prevent heart attack and stroke and help improve blood flow to the heart. Small daily doses of aspirin have proven to be effective in reducing the chances of mini-strokes (in which clogged blood vessels prevent sufficient oxygen from reaching the brain). Aspirin is also used to reduce the risk of heart attack in people with clogged coronary arteries, and in those who've already had an attack.

With its great-tasting "citrus burst" flavor, Fasprin is ideal for patients on a daily heart health aspirin regimen and is sugar free for diabetics.

Fasprin's patented, no-swallow aspirin delivery method reduces irritation to the gastrointestinal tract by quickly dissolving in the mouth, which allows the aspirin to enter the blood stream in just three to five minutes, or up to ten times faster than conventional aspirin that typically is absorbed through the stomach.

Tom Klamet, president of Improvita Health Products, Inc., noted that the low-dose aspirin tablet uses the latest technology for delivering the required dosage to the blood stream. "Fasprin was developed by a physician who saw the many benefits of an aspirin that could be administered quickly and effortlessly," he commented. "A daily aspirin regimen can fast become a chore, especially for older adults who have a hard time swallowing a full tablet. Fasprin's ability to dissolve on the tongue ensures 100 percent bioavailability, or the delivery of the entire aspirin into the blood stream."

Some studies have shown that enteric-coated aspirin delivers just 50 percent of the dosage before the remaining tablet is eliminated by the body.

The quick-dissolve absorption also makes Fasprin the delivery of choice at the onset of a heart attack or stroke, where doctors recommend immediately administering aspirin. By doing so, aspirin can reduce the risk of death by as much as 23 percent, according to published studies.

Fasprin comes in a 30-tablet package (a month's supply), and carries a suggested retail price of $5.99. Fasprin is available wherever aspirin is sold, including Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Albertsons, Meijer and Wal-Mart. The product is also available through the company's website at http://www.Fasprin.com.
