How Do Diet Patches Work?

Published:June 27th, 2010

Transdermal patches are placed on the skin and deliver substances through the skin directly into the bloodstream. Other routes such as oral administration are not as advantageous as the transdermal option, which can offer a continuous release of the substances to the people using it.

Diet patches are meant to deliver a combination of ingredients that will boost a person’s metabolism and thus help lose weight in an effortless manner. The effect is the suppression of appetite and speed up metabolism.

Some of the ingredients included in weight loss patches are also found in the most common diet products. Hoodia Godronii, flaxseed oil, focus vesiculosus, guarana, yerba mate are some of the most common. Besides herbs, weight loss patches may include specific amino acids that are considered safe and necessary for a healthy metabolism.

Weight loss patches can control your appetite, balance the levels of hormones, reduce water retention and eliminate toxins. The results involve increased levels of energy, burning fat, retaining muscle and elevating mood.

One obvious advantage of weight loss patches is that dieting is easier if your metabolism is regulated without the need of you making great efforts. A healthy lifestyle, with a healthy diet and regular exercise are of course desirable, but these can be enhanced by the effects of the use of such patches.

The most important advantage offered by diet patches are the fact that substances delivered through the patch can go directly to the bloodstream.

The ingredients have a positive effect on insulin regulation and this leads to more stable blood sugar levels. This is why you will not feel the need to have a snack in between meals. Direct delivery to the blood stream can be much more efficient than taking capsules, tablets, even liquids.

Weight loss patches are safe to use, the only problem reported by users was in cases of extremely sensitive skin. Reactions to the adhesive used in weight loss patches can appear in such cases.
