Why Use Vitamin Patches, Not Pills?

Why Are Patches Superior To Tablets?

The majority of people swallow their vitamin supplements orally by means of pills, capsules or liquid form.

There is a more effective way to take in nutritonal/vitamin and health supplements to improve your overall health and well being. Health care professionals and specialist researchers agree with the simple fact that Transdermal Patches are a far better delivery solution for taking vitamin and nutritional supplements.

Transdermal means “through the skin”, providing the vitamin supplements directly into the bloodstream using a patch applied to the skin, layered with a special time-release formulation made up of many specific vitamins and minerals. When placed on the skin the nutritional dosage is gradually over time, absorbed into your bloodstream for fast availability and utilization by your body.

What Happens When You Swallow Vitamin Pills?

When you swallow a nutritional supplement pill, it goes to your stomach where it is instantly attacked by a potent mix of intestinal acids. Based on how many other food items you’ve consumed, the tablets or capsules in your stomach can stay there for as long as 4 hours for the typical digestive process to take place.

While this process continues, the pills in the stomach are being degraded by strong and highly effective digestive stomach acids.

After around 4 hours, any remaining vitamin nutritional value begins its process into the small intestine where it will finally be absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed around your body.

Results of studies show that on the average, as low as 2% of the original vitamin dose taken survives the rigorous digestive process and is assimilated by the body, significantly decreasing the dose originally taken and its effectiveness.

Transdermal Patch Construction

  • Liner – Protects the patch during storage. The liner is removed prior to use.
  • Formula – Supplement or medication in direct contact with release liner
  • Adhesive – Serves to adhere the components of the patch together along with adhering the patch to the skin
  • Membrane – Controls the release of the medication or supplement from the reservoir and multi-layer patches
  • Backing – Protects the patch from the outer environment

What Happens When You Apply A Vitamin Patch?

When a patch is applied to the skin, your body-heat activates the supplement formula along with the nutrients. Transit happens by means of the skin to the small blood vessels, referred to as capillaries, which are many beneath the skin. This is direct delivery of nutrients to the bloodstream or what is known as Transdermal Delivery, since nutrients are absorbed by means of your pores inside the Derma (skin).

You apply a patch on the skin (the inner/out arm or upper forearm, shoulder and wrist are most typical areas to put on patches).

The vitamin and nutritional products in LLT Patches are delivered slowly over many hours, hence the term Time Release Delivery system. All our vitamin patches are “time-release delivery” and designed and formulated for each specific patch. And you achieve maximum health benefits through this clever absorbtion method.

You cannot obtain this type of Bloodstream Direct delivery system by swallowing tablets and pills or drinking liquids.
