MELATONIN is a compound in our body that helps to regulate sleep as well as other physiological rhythms in our body. Known as the body’s most efficient free-radical scavenger with an impressive ability to control oxidative damage, melatonin has powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune properties. These properties function as brain, heart, neurological, cognitive and cancer protection through the reduction of trauma from brain injury; preventing heart muscle damage; neuroprotection; increasing cognitive functioning; and offering cancer support and reducing the toxic effects of chemotherapy.
GABA benefits are numerous, ranging from improving your mood, ability to focus, promoting relaxation and helping to control stress. Supplementing it is a useful tool for individuals seeking relief with symptoms resulting from ADHD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks and addictions. ability to not only reduce the difficulty a person experiences in falling asleep but also improve the quality of rest they experience after drifting off is due to the same biochemical effect. By increasing levels of desirable neurotransmitters in the brain and inhibiting chemicals linked to stress, GABA helps a person experience a deeper, more restful sleep. This leaves people feeling more energized and mentally sharp the next day.

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 nutrients 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.
