Our consumers told us they loved the FAST Pain relief product, but for those mornings when they’d partied a little too hard the night before, they needed something more.  Choline Salicylate is such an effective pain reliever that we have developed a product specifically designed to treat hangover pain, with a higher level of pain reliever than the FAST Pain Relief product.

Choline Salicylate (one of the active ingredients in FAST Hangover pain relief) can be absorbed into the bloodstream up to 5x faster than aspirin* (3).

How does FAST work to relieve Hangover Pain?

Choline Salicylate and caffeine are the two active ingredients in FAST Choline Salicylate is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat Hangover pain and caffeine is added to make the Hangover Pain reliever (Choline Salicylate) work more effectively *(5).

Choline Salicylate works by blocking the action of cyclo-oxygenase in the body, stopping the production of several chemicals including prostaglandins, which can cause Hangover Pain and inflammation. By blocking cyclo-oxygenase, Choline Salicylate prevents the formation of prostaglandins, and reduces the pain they cause.

Is Choline Salicylate related to aspirin?

Yes, it is related to aspirin (they are both salicylate drugs) and equally effective clinically, but Choline Salicylate has several advantages over aspirin – it is less harmful to the GI tract and kidneys, less likely to interfere with platelet function and less likely to trigger asthma. * (6)

How does FAST work to relieve pain?

Choline Salicylate and caffeine are the two active ingredients in FAST Choline Salicylate is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain and caffeine is added to make the pain reliever (Choline Salicylate) work more effectively * (3).

Choline Salicylate, the main active ingredient in FAST Pain Relief – is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain. This relieves the minor aches and pains caused by a variety of conditions including headache, muscle pain, toothache, menstrual pain, pain and fever associated with colds, and minor pain of arthritis. It also temporarily reduces fever. Choline Salicylate works by blocking the action of cyclo-oxygenase in the body, stopping the production of several chemicals including prostaglandins, which can cause pain and inflammation. By blocking cyclo-oxygenase, Choline Salicylate prevents the formation of prostaglandins, and reduces the pain they cause.

  • Caffeine (the other active ingredient in FAST Pain Relief) acts as an analgesic adjuvant – which means that it is an ingredient added to pain relievers to make them work more effectively. Medical research has demonstrated that caffeine, when combined with a NSAID, can significantly improve effectiveness in relieving tension-type headaches. In fact, a review of several scientific studies estimated that, for patients with tension-type headache, caffeine may increase the pain relieving effect by up to 40%* (3)

How does FAST Pain Relief compare to other Pain Relief products?

Is Choline Salicylate related to aspirin?

Yes, it is related to aspirin (they are both salicylate drugs) and equally effective clinically, but Choline Salicylate has several advantages over aspirin – it is less harmful to the GI tract and kidneys, less likely to affect platelets and less likely to trigger asthma. *(6)

If FAST Pain Relief has Choline Salicylate in it, and this is linked to the aspirin family of drugs, is it safe for my stomach?

There is no reason to be concerned for stomach or intestinal bleeding from our formulation *(6).

First, the irritation caused by local effects of NSAIDs and aspirin are generally of little clinical consequence, with the more serious ulcers resulting over time from the drugs after they get into the blood stream. Relevant literature also suggests that enteric coating of aspirin may not necessarily be more protective than regular formulations. Finally, published studies show that salicylates in general are less likely to cause gastrointestinal injury bleeding when compared to aspirin*(6)

If FAST Pain Relief has Choline Salicylate in it, and this is linked to the aspirin family of drugs, is it as good for heart health as aspirin is?

Salicylates are unlikely to have the same effect as aspirin on the heart.  Please consult your doctor if you have specific questions about the use of aspirin for heart health.
