Menopause is a natural process affecting the female anatomy, and while each menopause experience is unique to the individual going through it, many share discomforting, unwanted symptoms.
Menopause is a term used to refer to the stage of a woman’s life in which their reproductive years end and menstruation, or the action of getting “periods”, come to a gradual stop. The transitional period leading to menopause is known as perimenopause, and can last up to 8-10 years before menopause. Postmenopause refers to the years after a woman is diagnosed with menopause, and no longer experiences menstrual cycles or have the physical ability to get pregnant. Menopause typically occurs in women within the age range of 45-55, although there are different cases in which women can experience menopause as early as in their 30s, or late in their 60s.
Women that are entering perimenopause, going through menopause, or are in postemnopause are susceptible to a mix of symptoms. Some of these uncomfortable symptoms include mood swings, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, insomnia, irregular periods, and more. Considering that some women can experience these symptoms for multiple years at a time, it’s important to develop healthy habits to counter and hopefully reduce the symptoms.
With a high number of ingredients, there is naturally a higher correlation of people that may be allergic to at least one ingredient--making the entire product inconsumable for them. As a result, there are large populations of people who could really use the added benefits of vitamin supplements, but are unable to actually them due to unnecessary ingredients. Furthermore, those who are able to take vitamin pills are actually consuming a very small fraction of an already small vitamin dosage that is recommended by health and medical professionals.
Vitamin companies have consistently offered vitamin supplements in the form of pills and tablets without considering the amount of people that are excluded from being able to take their products. Even though many brands have tried to improve in recent years by eliminating artificial flavours, coloring, and dangerous substances like lead and mercury, it still doesn’t solve the aforementioned problems at hand.
In recent years, many vitamin companies have tried to improve traditional practices by eliminating artificial flavours and coloring, as well as remove dangerous substances like lead and mercury from their vitamin products. Although these actions have been helpful, it still doesn’t solve the aforementioned problems at hand.
Vitamin Patch Club prioritizes the health of everyone first, and that’s why we identified the need to create a vitamin product that could be used universally with minimal risk. Rather than create a vitamin product filled with long lists of ingredients, all of our products have five ingredients or less. We understand that many people face digestive issues, so we’ve completely changed how vitamins are taken!
With the revolutionary technology of vitamin patches, people no longer have to consume vitamins orally or put them in their digestive systems in the first place. With vitamin patches, vitamins can be directly absorbed into the skin. As a result, rather than only absorbing 30% of vitamin doses as people have done traditionally with pills, people can now take 90% of recommended daily vitamin doses through topical absorption. Finally, Vitamin Patch Club’s adhesive technology evenly distributes daily doses throughout the day so that you don’t only feel the benefits of vitamins in bursts.
