Continuous nutrient replenishment
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 gastrointestinal tract, a patch bypasses the digestive system altogether and efficiently delivers vitamins to the skin.
How it 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 30 minutes at 5% effectiveness or...
Simply apply a layer of vitamins before going out and forget about it until the next day.
Vitamin B1 = alcohol processor
AKALO B1 patches contain thiamine, also known as vitamin B1.
The B1 in our patches is an essential component in metabolizing carbohydrates. As soon as alcohol enters your body, it’s treated as a carbohydrate, and your body requires B1 to effectively process it.
In scientific terms, B1 is an important cofactor enzyme in the production of glutathione, which is critical to the neutralization of toxins produced by the breakdown of 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 can cause the symptoms associated with the day after drinking, 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.
