Why You Need to Choose a Patch Over a Pill

As children many of us had anxiety around pill taking. For some of us that anxiety was mild, and for others, it reached the level of high anxiety and outright hatred of swallowing a pill. Most people outgrow that anxiety and eventually accept pills as a part of life. In fact, oral administration is the most common form of medication and supplements for adults. That doesn’t mean we must or should accept pills as the best form of ingesting nutrition or medication.

Supplement patches deliver nutrients to the body by what is known in the medical field as “transdermal administration.” Transdermal patches are historically safe and a better way to absorb supplements for many people. There are three key reasons patches are medically more effective:

They Eliminate the First Pass Effect on Metabolism
After you swallow a pill it enters your digestive system by absorption, and is carried into the liver before reaching the rest of your body. The liver in turn metabolizes most pills, meaning that only a small percentage of the drug reaches the rest of your system. Patches allow your body to avoid the first-pass effect on metabolism, where the concentration of a drug or supplement is greatly reduced before it gets into your system. Nutri-Patch provides a direct to bloodstream delivery, bypassing the liver, meaning you get the entire dose, over time.

Patches Provide Steadier Dosing
Instead of an intense concentration of a medicine or supplement all at once in the form of a pill, patches allow for a prolonged release and steadier dosing, meaning that your system absorbs the medication and nutrients over time. Nutri-patch also helps those of us who are prone to forget to take our medication regularly with a more convenient method.

Easier on the Digestive System

When vitamins or medication is taken orally, whether by pill, powder, or liquid, it must enter your digestive tract. Stomach acid must then breakdown the matter that was ingested, causing digestive issues for those with sensitivities. Nutri-Patch avoids the digestive system completely because the vitamins or medication is absorbed through your skin.

Side Effects are Minimized

Eliminating intense concentration of a medicine or drug has many benefits, including the minimizing of side effects because patches   a medication running through the digestive tract over a short period of time.

Traditional medicine and its delivery methods - pills, powders, liquids etc. - have historically been accepted based on the advice of professionals. The rise of the internet and more awareness has led to people taking a deeper interest in their own wellness. Nutri-Patch is another step in your wellness plan.
