People have been using foods, nutrients, and other natural beneficial substances to support and enhance health and fitness for thousands of years by ingesting, placing on the skin, inhaling the aroma of, or otherwise applying to the body. Since 1994 Americans have had their right to speak about the benefits of ingested nutrients protected by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. Our Time-Release Patch Products come from that tradition, but they are not ingested dietary supplements. Rather, we offer traditionally delivered nutrients to support normal structure and function. Time-Release Patch nutrients are not subjected to digestive system processes, as are ordinary oral supplements. Studies suggest that nutrients that are not subjected to stomach acid and enzymes, have greater bioavailability than ingested nutrients.
