Most drugs are taken orally and dosage intervals may be inconvenient. Some drugs are partly destroyed or neutralized in the stomach, intestine or liver before reaching the bloodstream. Accordingly, a higher dose is needed to ensure efficacy, which in turn may increase the risk of side effects.

Doctors around the world are calling transdermal patches "the delivery system of the future" because It has been discovered that a high absorption rate of many supplements can be achieved when delivered through the skin. The reason for this is when supplements are delivered transdermally, they are absorbed directly into the blood stream, initially bypassing the liver, stomach and intestine.

Conversely, studies have shown when some substances are taken orally, as little as 5% makes it to the cells where they are needed. This is because of the stomach, liver and digestive system excreting and discarding much of the substances taken orally.

Our patches work by excreting ingredients through the skin and into the bloodstream, where they start to work.
