Stress Less! Which Patches Are for You?

Jul 19, 2022 Alex Brecher

Do you have a lot of stress in your life? In the rapid world we live in, it’s difficult to find someone who doesn’t have it in some measure. Stress can be overwhelming and can affect physical and mental health, but there are ways to manage it. 

Certain nutrients and other supplements can be used for stress-related symptoms.* If you have stress that’s affecting your health, ask your doctor if PatchAid Vitamin Patches may be right for you to take. They could support you in your quest to reduce the negative effects of stress.*

Effects of Unchecked Stress

Stress can come from many places. It can result from worries about money, work, relationships, health, or family. It can come from anxiety about the news, such as the ongoing pandemic. 

If your stress isn’t managed well and continues for a long time, it can impact your health. It can increase your risk for weight gain and high blood pressure. It can make your stomach hurt and put you in a bad mood. So what can you do?

Vitamin Patches for Stress

Many PatchAid Vitamin Patches contain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients and ingredients that could support normal mood, energy levels, and other functions related to stress.* These are some of our suggestions to support stress management. Just be sure to talk to your doctor before taking any supplement and if you have any health concerns.

  • B12 Energy Plus Patch by PatchAid*
  • This patch has B vitamins, which are needed for normal metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. That’s good because stress can be absolutely exhausting, so you need your body to be able to get fuel from food normally. 

    This patch also contains a proprietary formula with ingredients including rhodiola. That’s an herb that has been studied for effects in stress and related perceptions, such as mood, anxiety, and depression. 

  • Relax and Unwind Patch by PatchAid*
  • When you’re super stressed out, some relaxation can be a blessing. This patch has B vitamins which can support normal metabolism, as well as zinc, which is needed for normal gastrointestinal function and may be of interest if you’ve experienced an upset stomach with your stress!

    The patch also has Ashwagandha, which has been used as an adaptogen to combat the effects of stress. It has rhodiola, too. Ginger is an herbal in this patch that is used to reduce nausea, which is another benefit if you’ve been feeling sick from too much stress.

  • Migraine Relief Patch by PatchAid*
  • Headaches can come on because of stress, and if you suffer from migraines, you know that relief is always welcome! The Migraine Relief Patch by PatchAid has Ashwagandha extract as well as Coenzyme Q10, which is an antioxidant. Vitamin D and magnesium, as well as B vitamins, support normal mood and relaxation.

  • Sleep Aid Patch by PatchAid*
  • Have you ever been unable to sleep because you’re too busy worrying? Has anxiety ever prevented your brain from resting and letting you sleep? Does it happen often, or even regularly? 

    The Sleep Aid Patch by PatchAid contains melatonin. That’s a natural sleep hormone that is necessary to have normal sleep regulation and cycles. Without enough melatonin, you may have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. This patch also has magnesium, which is essential for normal muscle function, including relaxation. It has 5-HTP and tryptophan, which are involved in brain processes related to relaxation and sleep.

  • Omega-3 Patch by PatchAid*
  • Omega-3 fats are naturally found in fatty fish, walnuts, and flaxseed. They’re needed for a healthy heart, which is super important if stress has been interfering with heart health. They’re also part of normal brain function, including normal mood. This patch also has biotin and an antioxidant called astaxanthin.

  • Focus and Clarity Patch by PatchAid*
  • Stress can make your brain foggy and confused. This patch has omega-3s, B vitamins, and other nutrients that are essential to brain health. It also has ginkgo biloba, which has been used for focus, as well as antioxidants.

  • Brain Train Vitamin Patch Pack by PatchAid
  • This patch pack includes the following patches.

    A great benefit of using PatchAid Patches for stress is that it’s not stressful to use them. You don’t have to worry about taking them with or without food, and they’re sure not to cause symptoms related to digesting and absorbing nutrients. They’re super easy to use.

    Just choose an area of clean, dry skin, and affix the patch to it after removing the backing to reveal the sticky part of the patch. Leave the patch on for up to 8 hours, and then remove it. You can swim, take a shower, and work out with the patch on. It’s flexible and sweat proof.

    Other Ways to Manage Stress

    These are some lifestyle choices you can make to help manage stress.

    • Keep caffeine consumption to reasonable levels. Ask your doctor what’s safe for you. It’s about 400 mg per day for many people.
    • Socialize. Friends can make you happier and less susceptible to the effects of stress.
    • Exercise regularly. It improves mood and lowers the risk of depression, not to mention the risk of chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
    • Eat better. Too much sugar, highly processed foods, and fried foods can make the effects of stress worse.
    • Meditate or do yoga.
    • Embrace your stress. Accept what you can’t change, since it can only be frustrating to try to change unchangeable things.

    Stress can be a healthy adaptation in short bursts, but it can become an unhealthy factor in your life if it’s chronic and unchecked. There are a lot of factors that can cause stress, and many ways to react to them. Vitamin patches can contain nutrients and other ingredients linked to improved stress management. Just ask your doctor what may be best for you.
