You know what?
If you’re anything like me, you just don’t like taking tablets.
They’re often very chalky and hard to swallow. And they can very easily go down the wrong way when you try to swallow them.
And what happens when you develop a tolerance to your painkiller tablets? How are you going to treat the pain then?
But there’s no need to worry – there’s a solution at hand.
Instead of buying tablets or supplements that you have to struggle to swallow, how about instead using a skin patch as medicine or as a supplement?
We’re already familiar with the idea of nicotine patches as a means to wean smokers off their cigarettes, but it turns out that there are patches available for a wide array of issues and ailments beyond nicotine addiction.
In this article, we’re going to be talking all about the patches sold by The Good Patch. They are all made purely from plant based ingredients, and as such are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
You simply peel them and stick the patch on the skin of the inside of your wrist, and they will steadily release their goodness into your body over an 8 to 12-hour period.
Features of Good Patch Patches
As we’ve already made reference to, these patches are all made purely from plant based ingredients, and as such this means that they are suitable for vegans. Moreover, we can also confirm that they have not been tested on animals, and as such can be classed as 100% animal cruelty-free.
And on the subject of testing, we can also confirm that the patches have all been tested by a team of dermatologists and have been confirmed as perfectly safe to use on your skin.
They also happen to be free of any hidden nasty chemicals that you often find in medicines and supplements – they are all gluten-free, paraben free, and latex free.
We can also confirm that the plants used in the making of the patches have not been genetically modified in any way and are completely natural and organically grown.
If you were to take a tablet for an ailment, you often find that you will have to wait half an hour before you begin to see any effects. And when you finally do see a difference, this can often be for a very limited time, and you will have to wait for a good many hours before you can take your next dose.
In stark contrast, however, Good Patch patches start to release their goodness into your body as soon as you stick the patch onto your wrist. Then the patch will release their medicinal benefits very steadily and gradually over an extended period of time.
And I’m not talking about just a 4-hour period, as tablets are normally designed to be spaced out. A patch can last more than double that length of time, and you may still continue to feel the benefits of the patch for up to a whopping 12 hours on from the initial placing of the patch on your skin.
Very Discreet and Convenient
The patches are very small and discreet. They are designed to be placed on any clean and dry venous area of the body. The recommended place to position it however is on the inside of your wrist. And this makes good sense – it has to be one of the most convenient places to allow nutrients from a patch directly into your veins and arteries.
It also happens to be in an area where it won’t be prominently displayed on your body and can easily be covered by a sleeve. Or alternatively, you might be lucky, and find that the patch blends in very well against your natural skin color.
The patches can easily fit into your purse or wallet, which makes them perfect for keeping at hand in case they are needed.
Here’s a quick list of some of the patches you can get:
- B12 Awake
- Nite Owl
- Be Calm
- Nite Nite
- Hot Flash
- Hemp Queen
So, as you can see there’s basically something for almost every situation.
