How PatchMD patches are better than pills or powders?
Most people take their dietary supplements orally in the form of tablets, capsules and powders.
Is there a better way to take your supplements? The answer is "YES". Medical health professionals backed up by countless controlled clinical studies support the fact that transdermal patches are the superior delivery method for taking vitamins and supplements.
Transdermal means "through the skin" or dermis, delivering nutritional supplements directly to the bloodstream using transdermal time-release formula patches.
What happens when you take your supplements orally?
The dietary supplements travel to your stomach, where they are immediately introduced to a powerful mix of digestive acids. The vitamins or supplements can remain in your stomach for up to 4 hours which is normal for the digestive process. During this process supplements continue to be degraded by the powerful digestive stomach acids. After that 4 hour period in the stomach the remaining degraded supplement's nutrient value starts its journey into the small intestine tract where it will be absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered throughout the body. Studies have shown that on the average, less than 10% of the original vitamin and supplement that you've taken actually survives the digestive process, which dramatically reduces the dosage that you paid for and thought you were getting.
How PatchMD patches are better than pills or powders?
Moments after a patch is applied, your skin activates the patch and begins to transit through the skin into the small blood vessels called capillaries that are plentiful under the skin. This is the direct delivery of the vitamins and supplements active ingredients into the bloodstream or what is called Transdermal Delivery. Nutrients are absorbed directly through the pores in the skin.
Because of our unique time release formulation, an increase in Bio-availability is achieved.
