They are great… they work!
I've traveled to Germany for years visiting family and have always had trouble adjusting to the time. I had no problem this trip. I have to think the patch helped!
You prevent it from happening in the first place. AKALO B1 patches contain Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1. The B1 in our patches is an essential component in the metabolization of carbohydrates. As soon as alcohol enters your body, it’s treated as a carbohydrate. To effectively process it, your 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 can cause the symptoms associated with day after drinking, 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 nutrient replenishment BEFORE you start drinking and continue to do so while your body is still processing…this includes the time period while you are asleep. The old adage is true: "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".
Our revolutionary patches deliver nutrients directly to your body by avoiding the digestive tract. The stomach is a very hostile environment for fragile oral supplements. Much of the vitamin content you ingest in pill form either never makes it to where it needs to go or your body takes what it needs in that moment and flushes out the rest within just a few hours. With patches, you give your body the opportunity to take what it needs over the course of 24 hours without the gastric complication and without the spike in your bloodstream. Go with a patch. Slow and steady wins the race.
Place on a clean, dry and hair-free part of your body. Just remember to put it on as soon as you board a plane, and always BEFORE consumption of alcohol…and leave it on while you sleep.
Your inner hip (along the beltline), upper arm, and inner forearm are all good locations. Even the top of the foot will work, if you're wearing a sock to keep your patch safe. In case of extended wear in the water, we recommend applying a new patch after completely drying.
Each patch should maintain effectiveness for 24 hours.
