Why Transdermal Patches?

They Deliver 95% more dosage directly to the blood stream .When oral dosages have to pass the hepatic (liver first) pathway the dosage is degraded.

Transdermal Nutriient Delivery Systems (TNDS) are a fundamental part of a Highly effective nutrient delivery systems. They are polymeric formulations applied to the skin to deliver the drug at pre-determined rates in order to achieve their systemic effect. There are several important advantages to TNDS such as the limitation of hepatic first pass metabolism. This is particularly useful to supplements and vitamins that would normally undergo extensive first pass metabolism, vitamins with a narrow therapeutic window, or even drugs with a short halflife causing non-compliance due to frequent dosing. Other advantages include maintenance of a steady plasma level, zero side effects and enhanced therapeutic efficiency.

The use of adhesive patches for controlled release in applications, such as vitamin patches, appetite suppressants, nutritional supplements and hormone replacement therapy, has become popular worldwide. Adhesives on a patch generally help maintain contact between the transdermal system and skin surface. The adhesiveness of the patches is critical in the drug delivery mechanism, its safety,(latex free) product quality, and efficacy. As such, a good adhesive should easily adhere to the skin with an applied finger pressure and be tacky enough to maintain a strong holding force. The adhesive should also be easily removed from the skin without leaving a residue.

What about Solubility?

Question:

Can you offer any input on the difference (if any) between vitamins that are "water soluble" and those that are not, specifically Vitamin E?

Doctor's Answer:

Vitamins are classified as either fat soluble (vitamins A, D, E and K) or water soluble (vitamins B and C). This difference between the two groups is very important. It determines how each vitamin acts within the body.

The fat soluble vitamins are soluble in lipids (fats). These vitamins are usually absorbed in fat globules (called chylomicrons) that travel through the lymphatic system of the small intestines and into the general blood circulation within the body. These fat soluble vitamins, especially vitamins A and E, are then stored in body tissues.

Fat soluble vitamins, once they have been stored in tissues in the body, tend to remain there. This means that if a person takes in too much of a fat soluble vitamin, over time they can have too much of that vitamin present in their body, a potentially dangerous condition called hypervitaminosis (literally, too much vitamin in the body).

Persons can be also be deficient in the fat soluble vitamins if their fat intake is too low or if their fat absorption is compromised, for example, by certain drugs (that interfere with the absorption of fat from the intestine) or by certain diseases such as cystic fibrosis (in which there is a deficiency of enzymes from the pancreas which similarly interferes with the absorption of fat from the intestine).

There is a difference between the vitamins that are naturally water soluble (such as vitamins B and C) and the "water solubilized" form of a vitamin (such as vitamin E) that is naturally a fat soluble vitamin. This form of vitamin E is "water solubilized" by the addition of certain compounds during a specific manufacturing process. It is hypothesized that this "water solubilized form" of vitamin E is more efficiently absorbed through the intestinal wall into the body.

In sum, to respond to your questions:

  • "The difference (if any) between vitamins that are "water soluble" and those that are not" -- There is a big difference between the water soluble vitamins and the fat soluble vitamins and this is absolutely a critical distinction.
  • "Specifically Vitamin E" -- Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin. Although it can be "water solubilized" in the lab to help its absorption through the intestinal wall, once it is absorbed into the body it would appear to behave as a fat soluble vitamin does.
  • TDNS is the safest most effective form of supplement delivery  next to injections.Lower dosages have more immediate positive results . The timed release is very effective with water soluble vitamins B and C as they are can be used by the cell on demand.
  • That is why our dosages are safer and more effective at lower amounts!



What if just about everything you thought you knew about supplements and health turned out to be... absolutely wrong?
 Nutrition expert Thomas Hiatt, director of the world-famous Health Flex Wellness Health Institute, explores the various myths that have made supplements a “buyer beware” industry.

• Nearly all supplements sold in the United States and the world are synthetics created in pharmaceutical industry labs. As a result, they can be toxic to your health.

• There are distinct differences between natural (plant-derived) supplements and synthetic (chemically-derived) supplements and how they each impact your health.
• Nearly all medical science studies of nutrients and human health have used synthetics rather than natural nutrients, which throws the accuracy of all negative laboratory results into serious doubt.
* Dr. Health Flex has searched the world over to find raw organic foods  to use in there smoothie mixes and highly effective pharmaceutical grade transdermal patches
* whole foods and plant identicals  fit receptors on the cell like a lock and key and synthetic versions leave gaps and junctions that lead to carcinogenic effects. The most economical , pain free delivery system that works is transdermal patches, unless you like the Dr. giving you shots!

Patches deliver more usable nutrients and essential fats than oral supplements.
