					Hoodia Patch Information

A remarkable new patch containing the herb, Hoodia Gordonii, used for
centuries to control appetite The Hoodia slimming system is a continual
appetite suppressant, which works by releasing natural Hoodia Gordonii
extract, via a patch, placed on the body. Each Hoodia patch works for a full 24
hours, giving the benefit of working whilst you are asleep. The San Bushmen
of the Kalahari, one of the world’s oldest and most primitive tribes, have been
eating the Hoodia plant for thousands of years to stave off hunger during
long hunting trips.

Why transdermal Technology?

Transdermal delivery system, adhesive patches are used to deliver a
controlled dose of drug through the skin over a period of time. A skin patch
uses a special membrane to control the rate at which the liquid drug
contained in the reservoir within the patch can pass through the skin and into
the blood stream.
Doctors around the world are calling transdermal delivery "The delivery
system of the future" because it has been discovered that a high absorption
rate of many supplements can be achieved when delivered through the skin.

The reason for this is when supplements are delivered transdermally; they go
directly to the blood stream, initially bypassing the liver, stomach and
intestine. The result can be as much as 95% of the supplements get to the cells
where they are needed.

Most drugs are taken orally and dosage intervals may be inconvenient. Some
drugs are partly destroyed or neutralized in the stomach, intestine or liver
before reaching the blood stream. Accordingly, a higher dose is needed to
ensure efficacy, which in turn may increase the risk of side effects. Minute
amounts of the active ingredients are delivered consistently over 24 hours so
there are no peaks or troughs. This is particularly useful when you want the
ingredients to be working overnight, as this is the primary re-generation time
for cells of the body.
Frequently Asked Questions on using Patches.
Q) Why are patches better than taking Supplements?
A) Transdermal delivery is absorption through the skin. Doctors call
transdermal delivery “the delivery system of the future”. Products absorbed
this way go directly into the bloodstream instead of being filtered through the
liver right away. This means that up to 95% of the product can go to work
where they are needed instead of being filtered out of your bloodstream as
they can be when taking pills. This also keeps the product out of the harsh
environment of the stomach which can destroy up to 90% of some substances.
B) You may loose the effectiveness of taking a course of supplements if you
forget to take them regularly or on time. Just apply the patch and forget about
it. What could be easier?
Q) How do I use the patches?
A) Carefully remove the patch from its pouch, taking care not to tear the
patch. Use your fingers rather than scissors to avoid damaging the patch. Pull
off the plastic backing to expose the adhesive. Do not touch the sticky surface
of the patch.
Apply the patch firmly with the sticky side down to a clean, dry, non-hairy
area of skin, on the area of the body as specified in the instructions on how to
use your patch. Do not apply it to broken or irritated skin or spots. Don't put
moisturiser, creams or powder on the skin before applying the patch, as this
may stop it from sticking properly.
When applying a new patch, remove the old one first and apply the new one
to a slightly different area of skin. This avoids irritating the skin.
To remove the patch, peel off one corner and pull the patch smoothly away
from the skin. Any glue or sticky residue left on the skin can be removed with
baby oil. If a patch falls off, replace it with a new one and keep to your patch
change days as normal. If you have just had a bath or shower wait for the skin
to cool down before applying a new patch.
Try to avoid wearing the patch under tight clothing or elasticised waistbands.
If you sunbathe while wearing the patch, cover the patch so it is not exposed
to direct sunlight.
Exercising or applying heat to the patch may increase the amount of medicine
absorbed into the body. This can increase the risk of side effects.
Never divide or cut a patch.
Q) Where do I apply the patch?
A) Simply place one patch on a different location on the skin every 24hrs. We
suggest that the patch be placed on a smooth, clean and hair-free area, if
possible to avoid irritation when removing the patch. Do not place the patch
on the face or genitals or immediately above the heart.
Q) Are there any side effects?
A) The herbs used in our patches have been used for hundreds of years in
medicinal applications with no adverse side effects when taken in
recommended doses. There are no synthetic additives, colourings, or artificial
preservatives in the product and no negative side effects have been reported
after use by thousands of women.
Q) Can anyone use Patch’s?
A) Yes any healthy person can use the Patch’s. Pregnant women or people
with any medical condition should not use the patches without supervision of
their health care professional first.
Q) How long do I leave the patch on for?
A) Patch works 24-hrs a day even while you are sleeping. So just apply a new
patch every 24 hours.
Q) Can I get the patch wet?
A) Our patches will not come off while showering, bathing or swimming
Q) The adhesive is sticking so well that it is difficult for me to remove the
patch from my body. What would you suggest?
A) When trying to remove an adhesive from your skin you could try rubbing
an oil-based product, such as baby oil, over the adhesive. This should help to
remove the residue.
Q) Does it hurt or burn?
A) No. There is no burning sensation associated with patch use. Removing the
patch is no more painful than removing a plaster.
