The Power of Transdermal Delivery
“The Delivery System of the Future.”
In the case of natural supplements, it is important to first understand why we feel strongly about transdermal delivery – absorbing nutrients through the skin. Doctors around the world are calling transdermal delivery “the delivery system of the future.” It has been discovered that a high absorption rate of many supplements can be achieved when delivered through the skin – usually as a cream. (The physical size of the supplement’s molecule plays an important role). The reason for this is when supplements are delivered transdermally, they go directly to the blood-stream, initially bypassing the liver. The result can mean as much as 95% of the supplements get to the cells where they are needed.*
Conversely, studies have shown when some substances are taken orally, as little as 5% make it to the cells where they are needed. This is because of the stomach, liver and digestive system digesting,excreting and discarding much of them.
Think about that for a moment…95% vs. 5%! This is why we believe transdermal delivery can be a much more effective alternative for many supplements.
Note that this information above is a few years old … but we have been saying this for years! This method has proven to be so effective, just think of the number of medicines are delivered by way of a “patch”. Why? The power of transdermal delivery!
