D3 is important for your neurological health and promising research has been building over the last few years around the correlation between Alzheimer’s disease and vitamin D deficiency. Adequate vitamin D is very beneficial to joint health. Vitamin D is thought to stimulate the production of powerful peptides in white blood cells and also in epithelial cells which line the respiratory tract, thereby protecting the lungs from infection. Also, as touched on previously, vitamin D may modulate the immune response and strengthen immune defenses.
K1 goes directly to your liver and helps you maintain healthy blood clotting and K2 is made by the bacteria that line yourgastrointestinal tract; K2 goes straight to your blood vessel walls, bones, and tissues other than your liver. Vitamin K as a whole protects the heart, prevents osteoporosis, helps prevent cancer, and insulin sensitivity.

why a patch
What happens when you swallow your supplements:
When you swallow a dietary supplement pill, it travels to your stomach, where the pill is immediately introduced to a powerful mix of digestive acids. Depending on what other foods you’ve eaten, the supplements in you stomach remain there for up to 4 hours as part of the normal digestive process. During this process the supplements in the stomach continue to be degraded by powerful digestive stomach acids.
After approximately 4 hours, the remaining supplements’ nutrient value starts its journey into the small intestinal tract where it will be absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered throughout the body. Studies have shown that on the average, as little as 2% of the original dietary supplement taken survives the digestive process and is absorbed by the body, dramatically reducing the dosage originally taken and its resulting effectiveness.
With a transdermal patch:
As soon as a patch is applied to the skin, body-heat activates the supplement formula and the nutrients begin to transit through the skin into the small blood vessels called capillaries that are plentiful under the skin. This is direct delivery of nutrients to the bloodstream or what is called Transdermal Delivery because nutients are absorbed directly through pores in the Derma (skin).
Because the nutrient delivery process is done over a period of many hours while a patch is worn, we call this ‘Time-Release Delivery’.
-Maximum Dosage Absorbtion – Patches allow you to absorb up to 10 times the dosage that comparable orally taken supplements deliver.
-Patches release nutritional supplement ingredients directly into the bloodstream, bypassng the harsh acidic environment of the stomach and digestive tract that destroys most of the original nutrient value of supplements taken orally.
-Patches deliver their nutritional supplement load directly to the bloodstream the moment a patch is applied to the skin, versus up to 4 hours with supplements taken orally that must pass through the stomach and digestive system.
-Incredible convenience – there is nothing easier than applying a patch before bedtime or in the morning after showering, instead of having to remember to take multiple pills day after day.
