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.
The real trick, though, is to ensure that you deliver vitamin B1 (hence, wear a patch) BEFORE you start drinking. The old adage about prevention is very much true in this case.
Our revolutionary patches deliver nutrients directly to your body through the skin. The human stomach is a very inhospitable environment for man-made and fragile vitamins. While nature shields vitamins in cellulose, we haven't yet found a supplement manufacturer that does.
Place on a clean, dry and hair-free part of your body. We prefer to put them on after showering in the morning and keep them on until the next day. Your forearm, lower stomach (especially in the belt line), lower back, backside and shoulder are all good locations. Even the foot if you're wearing a sock. In case of extended wear in the water, we recommend applying a new patch after completely drying.
Each patch should maintain effectiveness for 24-36 hours.
