The B12 Patch is 100% natural. Apply a new B12 Patch to a clean and dry area of the skin behind the ear lobe on the neck. Firmly press adhesive side to skin and leave the patch in place for up to 24 hours. The recommended use of one patch (1000 mcg) per week is based upon the dosage of a weekly B12 shot (1000 mcg). You may apply more than one patch per week as there is no upper limit on B12. A month supply contains 4 patches. One patch is approximately the size of a dime.
Do not apply to damaged (wound, abrasion, sores, or rash) or sensitive skin. Only use one patch at a time. If pregnant or nursing, ask a health professional before use. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
How Does a Patch Work?
A patch delivers nutrients into the circulatory system by absorption through the skin.
A patch uses a special membrane to control the rate at which nutrients, contained within it, pass through the skin and into the bloodstream.
For nutrients to be absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream, the drug molecules pass through the top two skin layers – the epidermis and dermis – into the capillaries (small blood vessels).
By direct delivery to the bloodstream, without first going to the liver (the “first-pass effect”) a greater amount of the nutrients are bio-available. A patch is designed to release the active ingredients at a consistent rate over a period of time.
