Every year, Americans spend an average of $36 billion on vitamins and swallow roughly 150 billion pills. What these consumers might not know is that nearly 95% of the nutrients in these oral vitamins never make it to the bloodstream - the only place vitamins are effective.  In contrast to oral ingestion, a vitamin patch is able to deliver nutrients to the body continuously over the course of wear. Instead of trying to send vitamins through the hostile environment that is the gastrointestinal tract, a patch bypasses the digestive system all together and efficiently delivers vitamins to the bloodstream through the skin. As it specifically relates to alcohol consumption, a fun night of drinking leads to continuous nutrient depletion and requires continuous nutrient replenishment.

Continuous nutrient replenishment can be achieved by staying connected to an IV, by ingesting pills every hour @ 5% efficiency, or... by simply applying a layer of vitamins in the morning and forgetting about it until the next day.

Meet AKALO vitamin patches.

Your discreet and easy option for continuous nutrient replenishment.


Thiamine and vitamin B1 are interchangeable names for the same compound and make up 100% of the nutrients in AKALO B1 patches. The reason we use B1 in our patches is that it’s an essential component in the metabolization of carbohydrates. As soon as alcohol enters our body, it’s treated as a carbohydrate. And to effectively process it, the body requires B1. In scientific terms, B1 is an important cofactor enzyme in the production of glutathione which is critical to the neutralization of toxins that come from breaking down alcohol. Given the body’s sensitive stores of B1 and glutathione (meaning quickly used up after a few drinks), and how integral they are in the disposal of the toxins that cause the symptoms associated with drinking that we are all familiar with, we must constantly replenish our body with these nutrients. Ongoing replenishment of B1 helps us process each subsequent drink.

Too often, people attempt to treat the negative effects of alcohol after they have already set in. Just as stretching prevents muscle injury, brushing prevents cavities and changing the oil prevents breakdowns, applying a vitamin patch helps to prevent a painful morning.


Vitamin D3 Deficiency The human body naturally makes vitamin D as a response to sunlight exposure. For many reasons, though, people don't get enough vitamin D. People who live in sunny climates often spend their days inside or regularly wear sun lotion when outside which can prevent the body from activating vitamin D creation. People who live in northern latitudes or areas that don't receive much sunlight in the winter months will often be diagnosed with what's commonly referred to as seasonal affectation disorder or vitamin D deficiency. There are many studies that show the importance of vitamin D showing that it helps with bone health, low mood, immune health, cardiovascular health and a host of other benefits. Regardless of which studies you choose to believe, there is universal agreement that vitamin D has a positive effect on the human body. Eating foods such as fatty fish, cheese and eggs will help you to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D. If you feel that you don't consume enough of these foods or your doctor has said that you could benefit from a vitamin D supplement, our vitamin D3 transdermal patches are a great way to maintain the necessary levels of vitamin D.
