Health in a Vitamin Patch!
Nutri-Patch® is the world’s first line of vitamin patches filled with essential wellness nutrients. Created by trailblazing naturopathic physician Dr. Nadine Hokayem in 2016, vitamin patches avoid the digestive process that causes up to 80% of the nutrients in oral doses to not be absorbed. Nutri-Patch® delivers vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to the skin using nano nutrient particles that may cross the skin barrier and enter directly into circulation for efficient absorption.

The Story of Nutri-Patch®Learn More
“I developed Nutri-Patch vitamin patches when I saw that pharmaceutical companies were making medicines available in a transdermal patch as an option to swallowing pills. And no one was making that option available for vitamins.
often heard patients say they have trouble swallowing vitamins, have too many to take, or dislike the after-taste. That's when I set out to develop a product that delivers the highest quality vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in a skin patch. When the student physicians heard about my efforts, a few joined me; one intern even included our work in her thesis paper. We ended up designing and formulating seven different patches with formulas to cover most people's needs.” Dr. Hokayem is as proud of Nutri-Patch® today as she was when she invented it and personally stands by the quality of every patch.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Nutri-Patch® work?
Nano-sized nutrient particles are infused into a reservoir matrix patch that adheres to the skin to transfer nutrients. They may then be absorbed directly into circulation, completely bypassing the digestive process. This is because the skin (the largest organ) is an alternate route of administration to swallowing. ( so is sublingual, inhalers, and rectal suppositories).
Where are your patches made? Are they safe?
We are located and entirely manufactured in the United States of America and operate under strict adherence to guidelines set forth by governing bodies. Our contract manufacturer and their sourcing hold certificates of analysis that are granted and regulated by the U.S.A. governing bodies so that you will receive a product that is safe, non-toxic, and manufactured of the highest quality.
How do all the nutrients and ingredients fit into a small patch?
Less bulk because, in a tablet, the nutrient molecule is bound to a powder. In a liquid, the bound nutrient molecule is diluted. Both these forms result in a bigger size and higher weight of the nutrient molecule, and therefore higher dose amounts are required and more to swallow. Because transdermal patches bypass the digestive system, where up to 80% of an oral dose is degraded and lost, they need only 20% of the amount found in pills and capsules. We show the oral dose equivalent amount so people can understand and compare the amount in our patches to the amount in tablets and capsules. Keep in mind that the FDA has not established a transdermal dose equivalent to an oral dose. As soon as an equal amount is established, we are eager to make that label available.
Do you have studies showing your patches work or are absorbed?
We have many independent studies from clinicians that indicate absorption. But since they are not conducted using a double-blind placebo methodology, they can’t be published as evidence. What’s more, the FDA prohibits all nutrient patch companies from making any claim of absorption. This is because transdermal vitamin patches are still classified as a drug and not as a dietary supplements. So until this changes, any absorption claim by a supplement patch is an illegal medical claim.
How long should I keep the patch on?
Wear the patch for up to 12 hours, day or night. If you keep it on longer, there’s no risk, or benefit, because the patch is no longer effective after 12 hours.
Can I apply more than one patch?
Yes, you can wear a combination of patches – for example, the Multi-Nutrient patch plus the Omega-3 patch. Wearing two patches of the same product, however, is not recommended. It may be advisable if you are highly deficient, but consult your doctor before wearing two patches of the same kind.
