We often hear that 60 is the new 50 and 70 is the new 60. While this new perspective on aging and life may be open to some debate, what’s certain is this: We’re living in a time of increasing health, wellness, and vitality.
Covid-19 aside, more people are living longer, healthier lives than ever in the planet’s history. In fact, life expectancy has roughly doubled over the past century, and centenarians, people who are at least 100 years old, are projected to be the fastest-growing age group.
To what do we owe this welcome news? Science and modern medicine certainly play a significant role. So do diet and exercise. One variable at the intersection of many of these contributing factors is nutrition. Drilling deeper, the specific variable that seems to play a key role in helping maintain health is wellness nutrients.
What, exactly, are these magic bullets? Wellness nutrients include the wide variety of nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants typically found in various formulations of vitamin supplements.
Not surprisingly, supplement sales in the past few years have skyrocketed in the U.S. and across much of the world. While some of this growth is due to people’s desire to maximize their immunity in the face of Covid-19, much of it is attributable to the simple desire people have to live an active, healthy life.
Oral supplements, especially those oversized and have a terrible aftertaste, are problematic for many, especially people with serious intestinal ailments. Couple this with the fact that up to 80% of the nutrients in oral supplements are not absorbed due to the digestive process.
A flash of insight
A successful and enterprising naturopathic physician in Stamford, CT, USA, Dr. Nadine Hokayem, was well aware of the problem. Determined to solve it, she had a flash of insight: Perhaps a skin patch could be used to deliver essential vitamins and supplements.
For years, transdermal patches have been used to provide a variety of prescription medicines and therapies, such as Ritalin, estrogen, testosterone, and Fentanyl. These patches have been proven to deliver their ingredients to the bloodstream. Could such a patch be used to provide wellness nutrients?
After many months of research and development and much trial and error, Dr. Hokayem invented the world’s first vitamin patch. It uses the exact same nanotechnology as the patches used by major pharmaceutical companies to deliver a variety of high-quality wellness nutrients. Its name is simply Nutri-Patch®. Says Dr. Hokayem, “I saw a problem and was determined to solve it. I had no idea I would be launching a whole new way to help people. And we’re just getting started.”
Today, this trailblazing invention is in the process of changing lives and contributing to the health and well-being of people around the world. The rest, as they say, is history.
