Five Benefits of Vitamin Patches

Are you thinking about switching to vitamin patches? Once you learn about their benefits, you may be convinced that it is time to try them. Once you do, you may never go back. Here are some of the benefits of vitamin patches.* When you are ready, you can ask your healthcare provider about which PatchAid Patches may be right for you.

  • No Malabsorption Issues
  • Nutrient malabsorption can prevent your body from absorbing nutrients from food or oral supplements. That can leave you at risk for deficiencies, even if you are taking vitamins. There are many possible causes of nutrient malabsorption, including bariatric surgery, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and colitis.

    When you use vitamin patches instead of capsules or chewable tablets, you can avoid the digestive system entirely, since nutrients are instead absorbed through the skin. They go directly into the bloodstream. That way, malabsorption issues do not affect the nutrients you get from patches. This also means that there is no chance of having side effects related to digestion when you use vitamin patches.

  • No Need to Swallow
  • Many people turn to vitamin patches because they are unable to swallow traditional supplements, or because they do not like to do so. Bariatric surgery patients and people with swallowing disorders may not be able to take capsules. And, many people dislike swallowing capsules, or do not like the taste of chewable tablets or liquid vitamins. With vitamin patches, you can get vitamins without swallowing anything.

  • High Nutrient Capacity
  • Vitamin capsules and chewables are limited in the amounts of ingredients they can have due to size issues. You can only swallow so much at once! On the other hand, PatchAid Vitamin Patches have the ingredients suspended in a matrix layer. They can have high amounts and a wide variety of ingredients. In addition, since you can wear up to 8 patches at once, it is easy to take all of the vitamins and other nutrients you want.

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Oral supplements may have ingredients such as gluten, soy or dairy in their formulations as a way to stabilize the delivery systems. Chewable tablets, gummies, and liquid supplements may have sugar to make them taste better. However, PatchAid Vitamin Patches are hypoallergenic. They are free from ingredients such as gluten, sugar, dairy, and latex. 

  • Extended Release
  • You keep PatchAid Vitamin Patches on for up to 8 hours. That means your body is exposed to the nutrients for 8 hours. In contrast, when you take oral vitamins, the entire amount enters your body in one dose. 

    Now that you know some of the benefits of vitamin patches, it may be time to make the switch. PatchAid Vitamin Patches are easy to use, and they come in a variety of formulations to meet your needs.* Talk to your healthcare provider about which may be right for you.
