Our bodies manufacture Vitamin D when the skin is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight, but the ability to do so decreases as we age. Vitamin D3 maintains healthy calcium and phosphorus levels in the body for strong bones; it increases muscle strength in older adults; and it also plays an active role in a healthy immune response.*
Apply patch daily to an area with little or no hair, i.e., shoulder, back or hip. For best results, it is recommended to wear PatchMD patches for 8 hours. There is no additional benefit wearing the patch longer than 8 hours. Patches can be worn during sleep. Avoid using any lotion or cream in the same area as it will inhibit absorption. Patch is not waterproof. It is ok to wear multiple patches at a time. It is not recommended to wear B12 Energy Plus at night as it may keep you awake.
ALL PATCH ORDERS INCLUDE 30 PATCHES (30-DAY SUPPLY)

I have been using the Vitamin D3/Calcium patch for 3 weeks, and I am loving the fact that I only have to apply them once a day. I was having to take pills three a day and I would constantly forget to take the second/third dose with my busy schedule. I am getting older and need my bones to be as healthy as possible in the future. I have had two knee surgeries. I have a Dr appointment next month and will be having labs drawn then. I will definitely be continuing with the Vitamin D3/Calcium patches.

I love the patches. I haven't had my first blood work done yet (MGP in Early Jan) but will report back. My only tiny complaint is the patches should have stronger adhesive as they have come off. when you put them under clothing sometimes the movement will rub them off. I press hard on them and they generally stay but not always and it's a bit of an irritation. Otherwise great product!

I bought these a few weeks ago because my Calcium level was starting to drop because I would forget to take my calcium chew supplement three times a day.
I bought these due to the ease of placing a patch on and forgetting about it until it's time to change again. Love the small patch size and they stick very well. I have not had a patch that has come off. I usually rotate and place on the back of my arms. I still supplement with 1 calcium chew in addition to this patch. I plan to have my doctor check my levels after a months time and hopefully report back here and update my review.

What an amazing little invention these babies are! I get SO tired of taking pill after pill sometimes and these are fabulous when you need a little break from it or are behind on something and need help getting extra vitamins thru a different way. They are also amazing for right after bariatric surgery (always ask doctor first tho!) to use right away when you are no suppose to swallow pills yet until everything is healed up. It's absorbed thru your skin so there's no risk to your surgery site. You do have to be careful if you sweat a lot I've heard but haven't had the problem myself. I am very greatful for this new & innovative way of taking vitamins and can't wait to see the long term affects they have in improving vitamin levels for me.

I bought the B12 patch but haven't tried that one at all. I probably should bring that I feel fatigued at times. Let's hope this works and this will be the answer to no more chewable vitamins or calcium. I'm hopeful.
