What are the best places to apply the patches?
These three images show the three best places to apply the patch. Anywhere to the left or right, or below your navel works. The example on the upper forearm should go just below the skin crease. And the one on the inside of the wrist is where you would feel for a pulse. They are all prime locations, so just choose the one that works best for you.
How can I keep the patch on if it falls off if I sweat during my workout-exercise or shower? The patch should stay on, but if you sweat profusely, or if you have very oily skin, the patch may not stay on for the number of hours required for the formula to be delivered. If you find that to be the case, just head to the Band-Aid section of your local drug store and pick up a roll of white waterproof tape. (It’s very inexpensive) Just cut off a 2 or 3 inch strip and put it over the patch to keep it in place.
Why Is Made In The USA So Important? We have all read about counterfeit drugs, tainted milk products, poison pet food, and construction sheet rock, from Far Eastern countries, causing serious illness, allergic reactions, and in some cases, death. This is due, in large part, to the lack of rigid inspections by the manufacturing country, and poor quality control by the country that imports the product. We could purchase any number of HGH spray products from other countries at a fraction of what it costs us to manufacture in the United States. But we choose not to do this. To us, it is more important to manufacture in our own United States FDA certified labs, with formula ingredients that have been rigorously inspected and subjected to strict quality control at every level of production. That is how we can guarantee our product’s quality, effectiveness, and safety.
Are Transdermal patches, or gels, better than capsules, tablets, or sub-lingual sprays? It all depends on the product formula and what part of the body you want to deliver the formula to. When we formulate a new product we focus on two primary goals. First, of course, is the formula itself. The second goal is the fastest and most efficient way to deliver the formula safely to one’s system. As you can see we have the capability to manufacture patches, gels, capsules, and sprays in our laboratories. We simply use the most appropriate delivery system for each product formula.
What About Bio-Availability with transdermal patches or gel? In the last 5-years, transdermal patch delivery for many prescriptive medicine and dietary supplements has become a preferred delivery method for health care and fitness professionals. There is good reason for this. Taken orally, (Pills, capsules, tablets, syrups) must contend with the powerful digestive enzymes and acids in saliva and throughout the digestive system, before they can enter the bloodstream. These enzymes and acids degrade a large percentage of the formula. On the other hand, transdermal delivery via special medical patches (and now transdermal gels) bypass the powerful digestive enzymes and acids, and enter the bloodstream directly via the tiny blood capillaries adjacent to the area the patch is worn or the gel is applied. Thus, direct delivery with no formula degradation. Bio availability – Transdermal patches and gels deliver supplement formulas over a period of time, thus giving one’s system adequate time to absorb and metabolize the formula ingredients. This increases the bio availability and strength of the formula dramatically! And, depending on the formula, the same formula levels are anywhere from 10 to 200 times stronger with transdermal delivery than with oral delivery. For example, 5mg of L-arginine delivered via transdermal patch, is the equivalent of 1,000mg of L-arginine taken orally!
What does your group of 50 athletes do to evaluate AgeForce® products? We have an informal group of athletes worldwide that help us field-test and evaluate new products before we introduce them to the market. We send them 60-120 day supplies of the product to be evaluated and they use the product as directed and submit comprehensive written evaluation reports to us every 2-weeks or every 4-weeks, depending on the product use cycle. We also speak to most of them by phone or email to collect subjective results, comments, and suggestions. This is real-world testing and evaluation that helps us to offer the consumer products that work as advertised.
Why don’t you offer anabolic steroids? They are illegal!
Can I cancel my AutoShip order anytime for any reason? You certainly can! You have absolutely no ongoing long-term obligations! You can stop monthly deliveries prior to your next monthly delivery, just send us a an
and we will issue a credit for your full purchase price less outgoing shipping and handling charges. We will confirm your AutoShip order cancellation immediately by return email so that you have a record of your cancellation. We don’t want anyone to feel that AutoShip obligates them to receive orders if they no longer wish to do so!
Do any AgeForce® supplements require a doctor’s prescription? Absolutely not! All of our supplements are considered “Dietary Supplements” and as such they can be purchased in any retail store, or online, like any common daily vitamin supplement.
What is the active shelf life or your supplements? All of our supplements have a 24-36 month active shelf life. They should be kept at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
What is genetically engineered HGH? In 1982 the first medicine to be genetically engineered and approved by the US FDA was insulin. Shortly thereafter the technique of genetically engineering HGH (Human Growth Hormone) was developed. Prior to genetic engineering, HGH had to be extracted from cadavers. Today, genetically engineered HGH comes from modified plant protein. It is identical in every respect to the natural HGH produced by one’s pituitary gland.
Does HGH supplementation benefit both men and women? Absolutely! While there are some benefits that are unique to women, such as moderation of per menopause and menopause symptoms, both men and women will realize the same health and fitness benefits.
I’m 16 years old…Should I consider HGH supplementation? Not yet! You should wait until you are in your early 20’s as your pituitary gland is not producing and releasing 100% of the HGH your body needs. As you enter your 20’s and beyond, your production of HGH slowly decreases. That is when HGH supplementation will deliver health and fitness benefits.
Why are your product formulas always changing? Our company is one of the very few companies that do basic Research and Development. Our R&D team is always working on our formulas as the science in each product category moves ahead. To date we have upgraded our HGH Patch formula 19 times since we introduced the first HGH Patch to the market in 2005. We recently started shipping our 9th HGH oral spray upgrade. Our StackerPlus ll is the 2nd generation of the most effective amino acid HGH precursor on the market today! And you can count on the fact that our new products will all have formula upgrades as we continue to research and innovate new and improved formulas.
Do you ship to APOs and other countries? Yes and Yes – All orders ship within 24 hours and we ship worldwide.
Will heat or cold affect the patches if they stay in my mailbox for a few hours? No, we stabilize all of the patches so that they are resistant to heat or cold.
What are the advantages of transdermal patch delivery versus oral supplements?
These two pictures tell the story! When you swallow any supplement, it is bathed in powerful digestive acids in the stomach for 2 to 4 hours. This destroys and degrades the nutrient value of any supplement formula by up to 95%. Then, after 2 to 4 hours, the surviving formula nutrients pass to the small intestine where they are absorbed into the bloodstream.
Compare that to the direct to bloodstream delivery of supplement nutrients via our medical transdermal time-release patches. With our patches, 100% of the formula is delivered to the bloodstream! And even better, the 8-hour time-release function of our patches assures that the nutrients are delivered efficiently and that one’s system has plenty of time to utilize all of the nutrient value! That’s 21st century science!
What are the best places to apply the patches?
These three images show the three best places to apply the patch. Anywhere to the left or right, or below your navel works. The example on the upper forearm should go just below the skin crease. And the one on the inside of the wrist is where you would feel for a pulse. They are all prime locations, so just choose the one that works best for you.
What exactly is a transdermal patch? It is a medicated adhesive patch that is placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of its formula directly into the bloodstream via a controlled time-release system.
Are there different types of patches? Yes there are 5 types of patches. Our HGH PowerPatch and Testo/100 Testosterone Booster both use a Multi-layer Drug-in-Adhesive patch. The multi-layer drug-in adhesive patch has 2 adhesive layers that are responsible for releasing the formula. One layer is for immediate release and other layer is for control time-release.
What was the first transdermal patch? The first patches were introduced in 1979. They were Nicotine patches and Estrogen patches
What are some of the popular transdermal patches in use today? Nicotine (Stop Smoking) – Fentanyl (For pain relief) – Estrogen (Hormone Therapy) – Scopolamine (For Motion Sickness) – Nitroglycerin (For Angina) - Vitamin B12
Why don’t other supplement manufacturer’s offer transdermal patches? The first reason is that transdermal patches are much more expensive than pills, capsules, or powdered mixes. The second reason is that transdermal patches require an extremely high degree of laboratory sophistication, expertise, and equipment to manufacture. The third and perhaps the most important reason is that it is only in the last couple of years that laboratories like ours, have developed techniques to modify the molecular structure of supplements so that they can be delivered transdermally directly into the bloodstream.
Why do you say only 5% of the formula in an oral supplement gets into the bloodstream? When you swallow any pill, capsule, or powdered mix, the supplement’s formula makes it way to the stomach where the formula components are bathed in extremely powerful digestive acids and enzymes. A high percentage of the formula cannot survive this hostile environment. The remaining formula then travels through the small intestine where absorption into the bloodstream takes place over several hours. Next stop the liver, where about 95% of the surviving formula is metabolized into “inactive” substances that are excreted. Bottom Line: just a small amount of the original formula (About 5%) retains its organic value.
Does transdermal patch delivery make the supplement stronger? Yes! Take vitamin B12. You would have to take 1,200mg orally to equal the nutritional value of 60mg delivered via a time-release transdermal patch.
If each HGH PowerPatch® contains 25 milligrams (mg) how do I convert International Units (IU) (Injections) to milligrams? Since each substance would have a different conversion ratio, we cannot put up a conversion for IU to milligrams that covers everything, or even most things. There are just too many different substances. IU stands for International Units and is used for the measurement of drugs and vitamins. Webster's defines IU as: a quantity of a biologic (such as a vitamin) that produces a particular biological effect agreed upon as an international standard What this means is that IU is dependent on the potency of the substance, and each substance would have a different IU to milligram conversion. For example, 1000 IU of Vitamin C would have a different weight than 1000 IU of Vitamin A.
Is The HGH PowerPatch® as strong, and as effective, as actual HGH injections? Absolutely! The PowerPatch® is the first true injection-strength product! You don’t need a doctor’s prescription and the price for the PowerPatches is just a fraction of the cost of HGH injections. We believe that they are more effective than injections in that the patch delivers its 25mg dosage of HGH (Somatropin) over the 10-12 hours that you wear each patch. That 10-12 hour time release gives your system time to metabolize the HGH more efficiently than injectable delivery. And with the HGH PowerPatch® there is no shutdown of the Pituitary gland that is often associated with injections.
Why are there only 6 PowerPatches in a 30-day supply? Each PowerPatch® delivers a dosage of 25mg of HGH. (Somatropin) That is true injection strength and like HGH injections, you would not take one every day! After extensive clinical and field trials, we found that one patch every 5-days was the optimum cycle. (Use one patch for 10 to 12 hours and then rest for 4-days and repeat the 1 day on, 4 days off cycle) With this cycle, 6 patches constitute a 30-day supply.
Are HGH PowerPatches for Men And Women? Absolutely! They are for anyone over the age of 18-years that is interested in serious physical fitness.
Will HGH PowerPatches help me build muscle and loose body fat? Increased HGH levels are the safest and fastest way to build lean muscle mass and burn body fat! But you have to put in the work! As the old and true saying goes: “No Pain, No Gain”! Increasing your HGH levels with the PowerPatch® will facilitate awesome gains in lean muscle mass and help you burn body fat as long as you workout seriously and consistently.
Can I Use the HGH PowerPatch® with the Testo/100® Testosterone Booster Patch? You certainly can, as long as you are a male! We recommend that any man interested in peak fitness and performance should use both. The formulas work in two separate and distinct ways to help you achieve higher levels of strength and fitness. There is a synergetic increase in effectiveness when taken together.
What is the difference in the HGH PowerPatch® and ExtraStrength® HGH Patches? It is important to differentiate the PowerPatch® from our homeopathic ExtraStrength® HGH patches. PowerPatch® works on an entirely different system of delivery. PowerPatch® delivers large amounts of HGH (Somatropin) directly into small blood capillaries, thereby increasing levels of HGH quickly. This is quite different than the Homeopathic delivery of our ExtraStrength® HGH patches that deliver small homeopathic amounts of HGH that are sequenced to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce more natural HGH over the long-term.
Is the introductory 12-Patch free offer applied to all of my AutoShip orders? Sorry! Just your first AutoShip order.
Why did you go with a 10-Hour patch? We simply felt that 5-hours did not match up very well with men and woman’s life styles. People are hard at work or at home for a lot longer than 5-hours. So we felt that a 10-hour patch was much more in keeping with people’s real-world day-to-day activities. And if anyone wants to limit their energy boost to less than 10-hours, they can just remove the patch and energy levels return to normal! So we think we’ve covered all the bases.
How long will it take, after I apply the patch, for me to feel more energy? You’ll begin to feel more energy in just a couple of minutes! As soon as you apply the patch, the skin’s body heat activates the formula and it begins immediately to go through the skin (Transdermally) and enter the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream the hundreds of nutrients in the formula work through various biological pathways to elevate energy, mental acuity, and so much more! Other oral energy boosters must first be digested in the stomach before entering their formula nutrients enter the bloodstream, so depending on other stomach contents, there is a meaningful time-lag before you feel results.
If I take off the Energy Patch before 10-hours, how long will it take before my energy levels return to normal? As soon as you remove the patch the formula stops transdermal delivery into your bloodstream. So your energy levels start to return to normal immediately, and in 60 to 90-minues, they are back to normal.
Is the introductory free 12-Patch offer applied to all of my Autoship orders? Sorry, just your first AutoShip order.
Is the introductory free 12-Patch offer good for a 30, 90, or 180-day order? Yes it is! We will include 12 free patches with each month’s supply ordered!
Your website page states that there are 24 vitamins and 15 amino acids in the patch. I don’t see any of those in the 8 main formula ingredients. Where are they? Actually there are 16 amino acids if you include L-Carnitine! OK, you will note that there are 2mg of Yerba Mate in the formula. Those 2mg of Yerba Mate delivered directly to the bloodstream by our patch, is the equivalent of close to 200mg of Yerba Mate taken orally. Yerba Mate contains 24 vitamins and 15 amino acids. It is considered by medical professionals to be one of, if not the most complete vitamin and amino acid supplement sources in the world.
Will this patch make me jittery and, or hyper? Two of our formula ingredients (Guarana & Yereba Mate) contain caffeine, and caffeine stimulates the central nervous system. That being said, both of these formula ingredients are not acid forming and will not produce stomach acids and that jittery or hyper feeling. You certainly will feel more energy and mental focus, and you may interpret those feelings in different ways.
Will the patch interfere with a good night’s sleep? Our instructions for use suggest that you remove the patch 4-Hours before you go to sleep. This gives your system more than enough time to return to normal energy levels and get a good quality night’s sleep.
What are the other health and fitness benefits other than more energy? The best way to answer this one is for you to take a couple of minutes and visit our 10-Hour Energy Patch Formula Page. On this page we show each of the 8 formula ingredients along with a great deal of information about the features and benefits of each ingredient.
How do you figure that your patch is half the price of the 5-Hour Energy shot? That’s an easy one! Let’s do the math: We used the price for a 10-Pack of 5-Hour Extra Strength Energy at Wal-Mart as of 8/24/2012, and that comes to $2.00 for each shot. Our lowest pricing is $19.95 for 18 patches. That comes to $1.11 per patch. And if you purchase 5 Hour Energy individually at convenience stores, as most people do, you would pay over $3 each!
Can I keep the Energy Patches safely in either my pocket, wallet, briefcase, or purse? You sure can! Just keep the patch on the white backing paper. Peel it off and apply it anytime it works for you.
If I take the patch off before 10-Hours, can I put it back on again? If, for some reason, you take the patch off before the completion of the 10-hour time-release delivery is finished, we don’t suggest that you reapply it. Just go with a new patch when ready.
How Does 7-Keto DHEA Work? 7-KETO DHEA (also known as 7-OXO DHEA) is a naturally occurring metabolite of DHEA that cannot convert to estrogen, testosterone or any downstream sex hormone making it a much safer choice for those wanting the well-known weight loss benefits of DHEA. Early research into 7-KETO DHEA showed that might work through two different pathways. The first is as a thermo genic. This means that it increases metabolic function and thus causes an increase in energy expenditure that leads to greater calorie utilization and can lead to fat loss. The way it appears to do this is through an increase in thyroid function and hormone production efficiency. While several studies have shown this effect, one study in 2006 used a transdermal delivered dose of 7-KETO DHEA at a rate of 25 milligrams a day to 21 healthy men for 8 days increased Thyroid Stimulating Hormone as well as T3 and T4. The second pathway that 7-KETO DHEA can affect fat loss is through a reduction in cortisol production that plays a larger role in the storage of new body-fat. So, 7-KETO DHEA is a dual function peptide that both increases fat loss and reduces the rate of new fat storage!
Can I Take Tyr-Somatostatin Orally? No. Tyr-Somatostatin is a complex protein peptide, and as such, the body treats it like any other protein and completely digests it, making it ineffective. That’s why we have formulated Tyr-Somatostatin for direct to bloodstream delivery with our AgeForce® time-release transdermal patches.
Why have I never heard about this fat burner before? Partly due to its inability to be taken orally. Since Tyr-Somatostatin is not effective in pill-form, there are only two other available delivery systems, injections or transdermal patches. Tyr-Somatostatin must be continuously delivered into the blood stream in order to be effective, and that would require dozens of daily injections, which would obviously be unacceptable to most people. So our laboratory R&D team combined this clinically proven fat-burner with our proprietary Time Released Patch system, and now the benefits of Tyr-Somatostatin can easily and conveniently be experienced by everyone.
Isn’t Tyr-Somatostatin the same thing as Growth Hormone? No. Tyr-Somatostatin consists of only 14 of the amino acids found in the 191 Amino Acid sequence of Human Growth Hormone. It is known in the scientific community as the Lipolytic Fragment of Growth Hormone – meaning that it’s the specific part of Growth Hormone responsible for fat loss without ANY of the other affects associated with human Growth Hormone. It is purely a fat-burner. Period!
Can I use more than 2 or 3 patches a week? Yes. Our instructions for use of 2 to 3 patches a week are guidelines that will work best for most people. But if you are very overweight or perhaps obese, you might consider increasing the frequency of use to 4 or 5 patches weekly. This will accelerate fat burning and weight loss. But remember, you must do your part! And that is regular exercise and eating sensibly.
Why did you add T2 to the Weight Loss Aid patch formula? Our Research & Development laboratory division has two responsibilities: They innovate and develop new supplement patches, and as important, they are also constantly reviewing our existing patch formulas to improve and upgrade them as new science and research dictates. In the case of our original Weight Loss Aid patch with Tyr-somatostatin, Clinical trials and peer review studies for TT2 (3,5-Diiodo-L-Thyronine) were not complete when we first introduced the patch last year. But now our research and that of hundreds of others proves that T2 is one, if not the, most awesome safe, natural fat burners, and that is why we have integrated T2 into our already great Tyr-somatostatin formula.
Will T2 have any negative interactions with my Thyroid gland? T2 in the dosage levels in our patch (2mg) will not in any way suppress natural thyroid hormone production.
Will T2 increase my metabolism (Metabolic) rate? You bet it will! Our studies show increases of 20% to 33%. Bottom line…you burn calories faster and that translates into body fat and weight loss.
Where does Garcinia come from? Garcinia (Garcinia Cambogia) is extracted from the berry fruit rind of the Garcinia plant. The plant is native to Asia, Australia, and parts of Africa.
How can Garcinia help me lose weight? Studies show that Garcinia as a dietary supplement may prevent or inhibit body fat storage. It has also been shown to suppress appetite.
Why am I seeing so much publicity about Garcinia on TV and in newspapers and magazines? A few famous doctors that have popular cable television programs started talking about the fat burning and appetite suppression benefits of Garcinia as a dietary supplement in early 2013. Also, several studies have supported positive results.
Why have you added Garcinia to your current formula? Like many other research laboratories, we have been conducting our own research into Garcinia. In the last 6-months our research convinced us that Garcinia in moderate dosage levels, was going to elevate fat burning and weight loss results by adding it to the other 8 powerful fat burners in our formula.
I have an active AutoShip order for the Fat Burner Weight Loss patches. When will I get the new formula with Garcina? We started sending patches with the new formula the first week in October. It’s a running change, at the same price, for all active AutoShip customers.
Why are the dosage levels for each vitamin lower than the oral multivitamin I am not taking daily? Because the vitamin dosage levels in the patch are delivered directly to your bloodstream, they are anywhere from 50 to 100 times more powerful than the same vitamins taken orally. For example, the 10mg of Vitamin C in each patch would be the equivalent of 1,000 mg taken orally.
Why are antioxidants included in the vitamin formula? We’ve included a very powerful and targeted antioxidant component in our multivitamin formula because antioxidants are related to essential vitamin supplementation in countless ways. The combination of vitamins and antioxidants created a synergy that amplifies the value and performance of each. Our R&D laboratory set out to, and did in fact formulate a multivitamin that was superior to any other multivitamin on the market!
How can I read about each vitamin and antioxidant in the Multi-Direct® formula? Click on this link to visit our Multi-Direct® formula page. We’ve posted comprehensive information about the formula and the health and fitness benefits of each of the vitamins and antioxidants in the formula.
Why did it take you so long to offer a multivitamin when you already offer other vitamins? We have wanted to offer a multivitamin for a couple of years now, but there were “challenges” in formulating all of the vitamins and antioxidants that we felt were important into one patch. We have now solved the formulation issues and Multi-Direct® is now available. And, btw, it is awesome!
Why the Icky Image Alert? We just felt that there might be some people that would find an image of a toilet bowl with green urine objectionable. But we do feel that a strong visual image to show wasted vitamin nutrients was very important. So we simply put the image on a pop-up page instead of the main product information page.
Why are such a high percentage of oral vitamins destroyed in the stomach? If you’ve ever had heartburn, you have a good idea just how powerful digestive acid is. Most vitamins and antioxidants simply cannot survive the long (1 to 3-hour) acid bath they are subjective to when you swallow a daily multivitamin. That is why direct to bloodstream delivery by our time-release transdermal patches is so effective. 100% of our vitamin and antioxidant formula is delivered directly to your bloodstream, and the 8-hour time-release function of the patch assures that your system has time to completely metabolize all of the formula nutrients.
How did you select the vitamins and antioxidants that are in the Multi-Direct® formula? With hundreds of vitamins and antioxidants to choose from, we identified the most important ones that current science, clinical trials, and peer review studies pointed us to.
How did you select the 9 Amino Acids in the formula? We used two factors when making our selections. First, which Amino Acids provided the highest levels of health, fitness, and wellness? Then we eliminated some Amino Acids that people get sufficient amounts of in their normal daily diets.
Which Amino Acids are in the patch’s complex formula? We have a very complete formula page posted on our website. It not only lists the 9 amino acids, it also tells you about the functions of each of them. Just go to the “Products” link on the blue navigation bar then when you mouse over the Amino Acids Complex Patch, you will see the Amino Acids Complex Patch formula page to the right. Please take the time to read this important page. Amino Acids are incredibly important and essential for good health, wellness, and fitness!
Why is Amino Acid supplementation so important? Essential Amino Acids promote protein synthesis, optimal workout and exercise performance, speed wound or injury healing and muscular recovery, improve immune system mental functions, and aid in reversing age-related muscle wasting.
Why are so many athletes moving to Amino Acid injections? In the last few years, some health & fitness conscience individuals and hard training athletes have turned to Essential Amino Acid injections in very small dosages. The reason small dosages are as effective as large oral dosages is that when taken orally, up to 95% of the oral Amino Acid dosage is destroyed in the stomach by powerful digestive acids. With injections and our patches, unlike oral Amino Acid supplements, 100% of the dose level is delivered to the bloodstream. Our Amino Acid Complex patch builds on the science of injectable amino acids, and as important, our time-release transdermal patch delivery is much more efficient, affordable, and much more convenient to use.
Why does your patch have smaller dosage levels than most oral Amino Acid supplements? Because our time-release transdermal 9-amino acid formula is delivered directly into the bloodstream over an eight-hour period, unlike oral amino acid supplements, where the vast majority of the amino acid component nutrients are degraded and destroyed by the powerful digestive acids in the stomach. Each AgeForce® patch delivers the equivalent of 7,500mg when taken orally. Up to 95% of any Amino Acid taken orally are destroyed before they ever get to one’s bloodstream! So our patches, even though the dosage levels are smaller, deliver 100% of the dosage directly to the bloodstream where they can actually provide the great benefits of Amino Acids. And even better, the 8-hour time release function of the patch assures that the Amino Acid nutrients are introduced into one’s bloodstream efficiently and assures complete utilization and bioavailability.
What is so important about the ratios of each Amino Acid dosage? Hundreds of studies have shown that the body benefits from various Amino Acids with different use (utilization) levels. So unlike most supplement companies, we have used a very specific ratio of dosage levels for each of the 9 Amino Acids in our patches to assure that each patch provides maximum benefits.
Why is female libido more complicated then male libido? Unlike male libido, female libido is quite complex, as both mental and physical aspects play equally important roles. While specific hormones may facilitate the activation of libido and female organ function, brain chemistry can put the brakes on desire fast. A woman must be relaxed, trusting and free of anxiety and neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin must be in balance within her body.
Why Is Oxytocin such an important part of the formula? A number of studies have found that Oxytocin will promote and enhance Love, Trust, Bonding, and Friendly behavior. Hugging, kissing, and other intimacies all stimulate natural production of the Oxytocin hormone. Oxytocin is also released in childbirth and breastfeeding. So Oxytocin is basic and essential to support female libido, arousal, and female sex enhancement.
Why is DHEA in the formula? DHEA is an androgen, and the natural decline of androgens in women as they age often results in low libido. This is especially true for women during menopausal years. But after childbirth, or at any age, lower levels of DHEA will cause women to lose intensity of their sex drive, make sexual arousal difficult, and inhibit and, or reduce sexual satisfaction and pleasure. So with this field of scientific knowledge, we have made DHEA supplementation a key component in our Female Libido Patch formula.
Why are there 8 other herbal ingredients in the formula? The formula’s herbal blend complex designed to reduce anxiety and impart a sense of wellbeing that will allow a woman to enjoy her sexual experience and reach a new height of sexual fulfillment.
Can I use the patch continuously, or just when I am planning to have sex? We recommend continuous use, as the patch’s 8-hour time-release delivery insures that you are always ready for that planned or unexpected special time!
What are the B vitamins in the B Complex patch? We have a very complete formula page posted on our website. It not only lists the vitamins and the dosage of each, it also tells you about each B vitamin and the functions of each of them. Just go to the “Products” link on the blue navigation bar then when you mouse over the B Complex patch, you will see the B Complex formula page to the right.
What is P5P? Pyridoxal phosphate (P5P) We use the form of B6 know as Pyridoxal phosphate, or P5P in our B complex patch formula. It is the most advanced and effective form of vitamin B6. This vitamin has been show to be involved in over 100 different and important bodily chemical functions! It reduces water retention and edema. It improves magnesium deficiency and may reduce the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatism, tendonitis, and some cardiovascular issues. It also has been shown to be beneficial in treating learning and developmental disorders and autism. B6 helps enzymes to speed up many chemical reactions in cells. It also helps to balance hormones and to strengthen the immune system.
Why Is B9 Methylfolate used in the B Complex formula? (Folic Acid as Methylfolate) We use the Methylfolate form of Folic Acid in our B complex patch formula. It is the most advanced and effective form of Folic Acid! Folic Acid is critical to all of the metabolic processes in our body. Women are advised to take Folic Acid supplementation before and after conception and on through the 12th week of pregnancy. This is to insure that the infants are delivered with normal birth weight and neural tube development during pregnancy. Folic Acid may play a roll in protecting against some forms of heart disease and cancer, and the synthesis of nucleic acids and the iron-carrying component of hemoglobin in red blood cells.
Why does the B Complex patch have the most expensive forms of B-12, B6 and B9? When we asked our Research & Development laboratory to create a B Complex transdermal patch formula, we said that it must be more advanced and effective than any other B Complex supplement on the market! We are not a “me too” company. Our corporate philosophy mandates that we only introduce transdermal patch supplements for sale that are more advanced and effective than any other supplement…. no exceptions!
Which is the most important B vitamin? They are all important, but most people fell that vitamin B-12 is the most important. B-12. That’s why we use Hydroxy Cobalamine form of B-12 in our B complex patch formula. It is the most advanced and effective form of B-12. (It‘s also 10 times more expensive than the cobalamin B12 most other supplement companies use) B-12 is very important in that it protects against brain atrophy associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and impaired cognitive function. B-12 also stimulates the body’s TH1 suppressor T-Cells. The Vegan Society recommends B-12 supplementation, as Vegans may not get enough B12 naturally in their diets.
Why is a Vitamin B12 Supplement so important? Vitamin B12 Deficiency can cause severe damage to the brain and nervous system, even at levels only slightly lower than normal. That’s why it is so important to supplement your normal dietary intake of B12 with a good quality supplement. This is a classic case of better safe than sorry, as too much B12 is not a cause for concern. B12 in enormous doses does have not been shown to be harmful to healthy individuals.
How do I know if I am getting enough B vitamins? It’s better to be safe than sorry. All B vitamins must be replenished regularly because they are water-soluble, and any excess is secreted in the urine. (So if your urine becomes a bright green don’t worry as your body is simply getting rid of excess B complex vitamins) What you don’t want to do is take a chance that you are not getting enough B complex vitamins in your diet, as there are very serious health issues associated with B complex vitamin deficiencies, such as: brain and nervous system conditions, anemia, paresthesias, depression and memory impairment.
Why is hydroxocobalamin better than other forms of B12? Most B12 supplements on the market contain an inexpensive form of B12 called cyanocobalamin. We wanted to formulate the best Vitamin B12 supplement so we chose the most expensive form of B12 available, called Hydroxocobalamin. Hydroxocobalamin is a naturally occurring form of B12 found in liver, and it lasts a lot longer in one’s system.
Why shouldn’t I just buy Vitamin B12 capsules? It is very difficult to achieve efficient delivery of B12 supplements in spray, pill or capsules. That’s why we developed our Hydroxocobalamin formula with an 8-10 hour sustained time-release patch. The patch delivers an undiluted and complete dosage of 5mg of hydroxocobalamin (Vitamin B12) directly into the bloodstream. This gives your liver the time needed to process and metabolize the dosage efficiently.
Why is the Melatonin patch better then any other Melatonin supplement brand in pills or capsules? The patches are much more effective for two reasons: First, 100% of the 5mg Melatonin dosage in each patch is delivered into the bloodstream, as compared to a 5mg pill or capsule where less then 25% of the dosage survives the strong digestive acids in the stomach.
The second advantage is one of “Timing”. Most people take a Melatonin supplement to get a quality night’s sleep. But with Melatonin pills or capsules, it takes 2 to 4-hours (depending on what else is in one’s stomach) before the surviving Melatonin enters the small intestines and absorbed into the bloodstream. So if you go to sleep soon after taking the oral Melatonin, you may have to wait a few hours for it to work. Or, if you take the oral Melatonin a few hours before you are ready to go to sleep, you may find yourself waking up well before you want to wake up, as the dosage has lost it’s ability to help you sleep. There are no “timing” challenges with the AgeForce® Melatonin patch. The formula starts to have effect within a few minutes after you apply the patch, and the 8-hour time-release function of the patch, insures a great 6 to 8-hous of quality sleep.
Does Melatonin have other health and fitness benefits? You bet it does! Melatonin is a fantastic health and fitness supplement. To many people just associate Melatonin as being a sleep-aid, but it is so much more. Please take a couple of minutes to visit our Melatonin Learn More page to read about the other wonderful benefits of Melatonin supplementation.
Why is GABA included in the Melatonin patch formula? When our Research & Development laboratory team develops formula, their goal is to develop formulas that are better and more effective than any other supplement brands. In the case of Melatonin, they noted that there were over 100 brands of pills and capsules and that most of them were good products. So the R&D team’s challenge was how to build a better Melatonin formula. Time-release transdermal patch delivery has two unique advantages as described in an FAQ above. But when the R&D team tested the combination of Melatonin and GABA (gamma Amino butyric acid) they know they had a winner! GABA has been proven in hundreds of clinical trials and pier-review studies to have an overall relaxing and calming effect, and this is so important to the body’s preparation for sleep. So with GABA, we have an exclusive AgeForce® formula that is light years ahead of the competition.
Does natural Melatonin production decrease with age? Yes….studies show that as we grow older and our natural Melatonin production decreases, we experience changing sleep cycles and often difficulty in getting restful quality sleep.
How safe is the ExtraStrength ® HGH patch? The formula, which contains genetically engineered HGH and an amino acid complex, is homeopathic. It is extremely safe to use short or long term. There are tens of millions of people worldwide that are using homeopathic HGH supplements without any side effects. That being said, pregnant or nursing women should not use HGH sprays, nor should they be used by anyone under 18-years of age.
How long will it take before I see results? We would love to tell you that HGH supplementation with our AgeForce® ExtraStrength® HGH patches will give you instant gratification, but that is not the case! Some people begin to see meaningful results the first week, and others might not notice recognizable benefits for a month or two. We post a study of over 100,000 people on our website, that shows the benefits reported in the first 6-months of HGH supplementation. Your own experience may be different, but this study is a useful guide. Please be patient! Homeopathic HGH supplementation works! Studies show that benefits from HGH supplementation come sooner if you eat properly and exercise regularly.
What is the first thing I will feel or notice? The first benefits that you might notice are a more restful, quality sleep, with vivid dreams, and felling more refreshed when you wake up. You may also find that you are more optimistic and a general feeling of well-being. These are the most common early indications that you are on your way to experiencing all of the many other benefits of HGH supplementation.
Is the ExtraStrength® Patch the same as HGH injections? No it is not. (Note: Our HGH PowerPatch product is injection-strength.) Our ExtraStrength® HGH Patches are Homeopathic supplements. In other words, they are formulated to introduce small amounts of specifically formulated HGH, with an amino acid complex amplifier into one’s system, and by doing so, stimulate the Pituitary gland to produce and release increased quantities of one’s own natural HGH.
How can you claim that Testo/100® is 100 times as powerful as other oral testosterone boosters? This is simply the multiplier effect of Testo/100® delivered transdermally with 100% delivery to your system, versus other capsule or pill format Testosterone boosters taken orally, where only a small fraction of the oral formula survives the harsh digestive acids and enzymes in saliva, the stomach, and throughout the digestive tract. In fact, some of the ingredients in our transdermal formula are 200 times more powerful than those same ingredients taken orally. To put it another way, if we put the same Testo/100® formula into a capsule, you would have to swallow 100 to 200 capsules before they equaled the strength of just one Testo/100® testosterone booster patch!
How do I know if I need to increase my testosterone levels? Testosterone levels decrease in the later decades of adult life. So to maintain and increase the strength, fitness, health and libido benefits of strong testosterone levels, it advisable to use some supplement regimen to stop the decline in Testosterone levels and to safely increase them to youthful
Why should I consider increasing my Testosterone levels? Testosterone is the principal male sex hormone. In men, Testosterone is crucial to the development of reproductive tissues that comprise the testis, prostate, and maintaining normal levels of libido. Testosterone also promotes increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body-hair. Testosterone is essential for health, well-being and the prevention of osteoporosis. Men produce approximately 10 times more testosterone than women. Testosterone is anabolic, which means that it builds up bone and muscle mass. Increases in Testosterone levels will increase energy and mental acuity.
I’m 50 years old man, and my libido and sexual activity is less than it used to be. Will Testo/100® help? It certainly will help. The most common reason for declines in libido (Sexual Desire) and sexual performance is a decline in testosterone levels. The 18-natural ingredients in the Testo/100® patch formula work synergistically to elevate anabolic hormonal testosterone production safely. Over a period of weeks, as testosterone levels increase, one can expect to see a corresponding increase in libido and sexual performance.
Will Testo/100® testosterone booster patches keep me from producing my normal testosterone? Absolutely not! The formula gently encourages your system to produce more of your own natural testosterone.
I’m a female…Can I use Testo/100? Absolutely not! In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle, bone mass and the growth of body hair. (Not a good benefit for women! On average, an adult male body produces about ten times more testosterone than an adult female.
Why is Pregnenolone in the DHEA patch? During our research for the DHEA formula, we found that Pregnenolone worked in much the same way as did DHEA, and that the health and fitness benefits of each were complementary. When we combined both in one formula, we conducted side by side clinical trials with DHEA only patches and patches with both DHEA and Pregnenolone. The results were astounding! The combination patches with both DHEA and Pregnenolone delivered 60% greater benefits on average, as did DHEA alone. It was a classic case of 1 + 1 = 3.
What is the best time to apply the patch? DHEA and, to a lesser degree, Pregnenolone are stored for a short period of time in the muscle groups. So what time you apply the patch is not critical. We usually recommend that you apply the patch in the evening, sleep with it on, and take it off in the morning. That allows the 8-hour time-release function of the patch to fully deliver the formula (Transdermally) into the bloodstream.
Why is there one patch for women and one for men? Studies worldwide show that the optimum DHEA dosage for women is 50% of the optimum dosage strength for men, so we offer the same patch with two different packages. Our package for Men has 30-patches with instructions for use calling for one patch daily. Our package for Women has 15-patches with instructions for use calling for one patch every “other” day.
What can I expect to feel when I use the DHEA + Pregnenolone patches? It’s not a matter of “feeling” anything. What you will be able to notice is “results”! As the DHEA and Pregnenolone are stored in your muscle groups, they increase the strength of the muscle groups. So you will see big-time increases in your workouts or exercise routines. There are also, so many other fantastic health and fitness benefits that you cannot “Feel”
Are DHEA and Pregnenolone Legal Steroids? DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) and Pregnenolone are both know as secretory steroid hormones and they are both very safe and legal for sale as dietary supplements.
I’m 20-years old; should I be taking a DHEA or Pregnenolone supplement? Yes and no: Natural levels of both DHEA and Pregnenolone production start to fall after the age of 30 years. So man or woman over the age of 30 will benefit from DHEA and Pregnenolone supplementation. On the other hand, men or women under the age of 30, that have serious and demanding workout or exercise routines, can also benefit. The fact that DHEA and Pregnenolone are both stored in the muscle groups help to increase strength and speed recovery.
Will DHEA and Pregnenolone elevate my libido and sexual performance? Yes! And that is supported by thousands of clinical trials and studies.
Why did you put both of these supplements into one patch? One of the great advantages of transdermal time-release patches is that you can combine separate and different supplement formulas in one patch, without reducing the strength and, or, effectiveness of each supplement formula dosage. Both Coenzyme Q10 and Omega-3 fatty acids are among the 10 most popular supplements. Effective doses of Omega-3 in capsules make for a very large and often fish-smell capsule, and COq10 must be taken 2 or 3 times a day. So for both convenience and for effectiveness, we elected to do a combination patch, thus eliminating big, hard to swallow capsules and having to remember to take pills or capsules 2 or 3 times a day. Just apply the patch in the evening, and take it off in the morning.
What is the difference in Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone, and why do you use the Ubiquinol form of COq10 in your patches instead of Ubiquinone? Clinical trials and studies show that the Ubiquinol form of COq10 used in our formula is far superior to Ubiquinone. The Ubiquinol we use is an oil-soluble vitaimin substance. We only use fully reduced ubiquinol, which is now considrered to be the most beneficial form of Q10. This fully oxidized form of Q10 facilitates its functions as an antioxidant and electron transport chain.
At what age should someone consider COq10 and Omega-3 fatty acids supplementation? Anyone over the age of 18-years can benefit from these two extreemly important supplements. The health and fitness benefits they have been proven to deliver are incredible! You have to read about them to truly appreciate how important they are.
I’m already taking both Q10 and Omega-3 orally. Why should I consider changing to your patch? Here are five reasons why our patches blow-away oral supplements:
- Dosage Strength - It takes at least 100mg delivered orally to equal a 10mg dose delivered by a transdermal time-release patch. Or to put it another way, Patches deliver 10 times the dosage that comparable supplements taken orally deliver!
- Patch delivery bypasses the harsh acidic digestive system that degrades and destroys most of the original nutrient value of the supplement. Whereas patch delivery bypasses the digestive system and the entire dosage is delivered directly into the bloodstream.
- Instant Direct To Bloodstream Formula Delivery - Dietary supplements delivered by patches start to enter the bloodstream as soon as the patch is applied, as compared to a 2 to 4-hour delay with supplements taken orally.
- The time-release function of the patch optimizes the benefits of the dietary supplement formula by delivering optimized dosage levels over several hours.
- Convenience – What could be easier than applying a patch before bedtime and taking it off when you wake up, instead of remembering to take multiple pills daily.
What is Nitric Oxide Nitric Oxide is a gaseous signaling molecule that is biosynthesized from L-Arginine. Nitric oxide is a very important cell-signaling molecule. Nitric Oxide is a messenger molecule that is responsible for numerous physiological and pathological processes. Nitric Oxide is one of very few gaseous signaling molecules known, and is additionally exceptional due to the fact that it is a radical gas. In 1998 three American scientists won the Nobel Prize for discovering the role Nitric Oxide plays in the cardiovascular system.
What does Nitric Oxide do to help athletic performance? It allows the heart to pump more blood to the muscle groups being used with no additional demand on heart muscles. Here is how that works: Nitric Oxide dilates (expands) the veins, and lower arterial pressure and left ventricular filling pressure. Again, and this is so important; this does not decrease the volume of blood the heart pumps, but most important to any cardio vascular exercise, it decreases the force the heart muscle must exert to pump the same volume of blood.
Why are Nitric Oxide Booster supplements so popular? Because they are safe and so effective, Nitric Oxide Booster supplements are very popular. No other fitness supplement decreases the cardiac workload. These properties of Nitric Oxide make it one of the most effective fitness supplements, in use today, to elevate workout, exercise, and athletic performance.
When is the best time to wear the Nitric Oxide Blast patch? We suggest that you apply the patch 1 or 2-hours before your workout or game. That gives the first stage (The Pre-Workout) formula a chance to elevate your Nitric Oxide levels. This first stage will release the Pre-Workout formula for about 4-hours. Then the second stage (Post-Workout Recovery) formula kicks in. This second formula will help your muscles recover faster and speed any tissue, tendon, or ligament healing.
Will the Nitric Oxide Blast patch stay on after I take a shower? Yes, in most cases. We have used a special adhesive that should keep the patch on throughout your workout and after your shower or bath. If the patch doesn’t stay on, we suggest you purchase some waterproof medical tape that is available in the Band-Aid section of any drug store, to place over the patch.
Is Nitric Oxide the same as Nitrous Oxide? No, not even close! Nitrous Oxide is what is commonly called “Laughing Gas” or “Sweet Air”. Please don’t confuse the two.
What can I expect to feel as a result of the Nitric Oxide level increase? You will feel a lot more energy, endurance, and strength increase when you work out or play your sport. This is simply a function of your heart being able to pump more oxygenated blood to the exercised muscle groups with no additional cardio demand.
Why is Creatine such a popular fitness supplement? It is not just “popular” Creatine is the #1 selling fitness supplement in the world, and has been for the past 10-years! Anyone that wants more muscular energy and endurance, for the gym, sports, or just recreational exercise, should consider Creatine supplementation. As early as the 1920’s, researchers found that larger amounts of Creatine stored in muscles can dramatically increase muscular energy. Since that discovery, there have been thousands of peer review studies and clinical trials that all support Creatine supplementation’s contribution to muscular strength, energy, and endurance.
Do I need a Creatine supplement if I eat a lot of meat? You would have to eat a boatload of meat! In fact, you would have to eat ten pounds of steak to get the same amount of Creatine that one good dietary supplement delivers.
Why are most Creatine supplements in powdered drinks? Powders that are mixed in drinks are just the way that Creatine supplements evolved over the years. We think that very old science. Today, we can deliver more Creatine directly into the bloodstream with a 1 ½ inch square patch, than one would get from several scoops of Creatine mixed in a drink!
