While tablets and injections have been the traditional way to take remedies and medications, new options are becoming increasingly popular.
One highly successful alternative delivery method is the transdermal or “through the skin” patch.
Patches can offer several benefits, including more consistent symptom control, enhanced convenience, increased tolerability and the potential for fewer side effects.
Enhancing bioavailability through bypassing first pass metabolism
Minimizing pharmaco-kinetic peaks and troughs
Improving tolerability and dosing
Increasing patient compliance
Factors that can affect bioavailability: the size and type of pill/capsule, the type of inert ingredients included in the preparation, and the crystalline properties and rates of dissolution of the drug itself.
While most prescription, over-the-counter and dietary supplement pills, capsules, or powder formulas may be good, they simply cannot get most of their formula nutrients into your bloodstream, which is where they must go to deliver the benefits and results you want.
With today’s advanced time-release transdermal patches, virtually 100% of the formula’s dosages levels are delivered directly into your bloodstream, with no degrading stops along the way (stomach Acids & liver). Better yet, with time-release patches, a person’s system can metabolize the formula nutrients more efficiently.
