NutriWorks Detox Patch-It - 20 Patches
NutriWorks Detox Patch-It supports natural detoxification and provides a revilatizing cleansing. NutriWorks Detox Patch-It is the tried and tested original patch formula - it supports your body's natural capability for removal of toxins through normal channels such as sweat and urine. If these impurities are not effectively removed from the body, they may contribute to the development of aches, pains, fatigue, bloating, headaches, cellulite, digestive issues, skin rashes and a weakened immune system. Over time, these may lead to chronic conditions and disease.

Faster Recovery From Physical Stress
Supports the Body's Natural Detox Functions
NutriWorks Detox Patch-It harnesses the power of reflexology, a popular and effective form of therapy originating in the Far East but practiced globally today, into an easy-to-use and convenient foot patch. Many nerve endings are concentrated on the hands and feet creating zones which reflect a map of the entire body, accounting for many benefits that can be felt following Reflexology therapy. Practitioners of reflexology apply pressure to these different zones to promote health in the corresponding part of the body, namely by improving circulation. Amongst many other benefits, healthy circulation promotes healthy metabolism, faster recovery from physical stress and supports the body's natural detox functions.
Ideally, the body removes toxins on its own. However, these natural detoxification processes are hindered by stress, poor diet, unhealthy eating habits, injuries, sleep deprivation and environmental toxins and struggle to maintain the normal cleansing process required for optimal health. NutriWorks Detox Patch-It can help your body get back on track.
The most effective use of Patch-It is to apply it to the soles of the feet before sleep as these are where reflexology zones are located. They may also be applied directly on point of discomfort or on alternate acupuncture points such as the back of the knee, on the shoulders etc. Avoid direct application on moving joints as the patch may easily detach.
Patch-It adheres to the bottom of the feet, like a large plaster. They should be applied right before bedtime and work while you sleep. For proper adhesion, clean and dry feet or point of application before use.
Every Patch-It has been formulated with a blend of 100% natural ingredients. At the core of each formula is NutriWorks' unique blend of Mandarin wood vinegar and Tourmaline. Mandarin wood vinegar is an extract from the Mandarin orange tree that is exclusive to NutriWorks and that has been produced via a renewable, eco-friendly process.
Vinegar has a long history of use. In Chinese Medicine, vinegar is regarded as having "warming" and "drawing" properties. When applied to the soles of the feet, the"warming" characteristic provides stimulation to the reflexology zones resulting in measurable changes in your body such as improved circulation. The "drawing" property promotes better perspiration via the bottom of the feet.
Every Patch-It also contains a small quantity of Black Tourmaline in the form of very finely grounded nano-sized particles. Tourmaline has unique properties associated with healing and is widely used as a source of far infrared energy.
Detox Patch-It Frequently Asked Questions
Is Patch-It safe?
Patch-It has been widely distributed around the world with millions of patches sold over the last 10 years. Patch-It does not deliver anything into the body so is not expected to interact with any medication nor does it have any known side effects. This means that it is safe for repeated use for continuous periods of time.
What is the best way to use Patch-It ?
Use Patch-It according to your individual needs and body condition.? For example, an elderly person with more health concerns or who is on long-term medication should use Patch-It more regularly.
Drink an extra glass of water when using Patch-It and try to adopt healthy habits such as: eat lots of fruits and vegetables every day; drink at least 8 glasses of water every day; exercise regularly to get your blood moving; refrain from smoking, drinking caffeinated or alcoholic beverages; and most importantly, stay positive!
What is Far Infrared?
Patch-It contains a natural ingredient called Mandarin Wood Vinegar. This ingredient emits far infrared energy (FIR). Far infrared is part of the electromagnetic spectrum from 5.6 to 1000 micron wavelength. This band of light is not visible to human eyes but can be seen by special cameras that translate infrared into visible colors. The sun produces most of its energy in the infrared segment of the spectrum so that although you cannot see this energy, you can certainly feel its effects. Your body radiates infrared energy through the skin at 3 to 50 microns. Your palms emit infrared energy too, from 8 to 14 microns. Infrared energy penetrates tissues to a depth of over one centimeter.
Why Mandarin wood?
Wood vinegar can be extracted from all sorts of wood sources. The most common are Bamboo, Oak and Cedar. Aside from the method of extraction which has a substantial impact on quality, the level of organic acids varies between the various types of wood sources. Patch-It is unique in that it uses Mandarin wood as the source of vinegar. This is because the vinegar extract was originally developed as a healthy tonic drink and Mandarin wood has an organic acid level of about 16% (compared typically to 6% in Bamboo and 10% in Oak or Cedar).
How does Patch-It work?
Patch-It has a dual action. These actions are "stimulation and absorption". In traditional Chinese medicine, vinegar has "warming" and "drawing" properties. This characterization of the ingredient in traditional use can in turn be used to understand the dual action of the patch. It also explains the "Spa-in-a-Patch" idea where cleansing is one of the intended secondary benefits. Patch-It does not ease aches and pains by means of heat (such as in a sauna). This is not like a chili plaster or the usual "deep heat" idea. Instead it uses far infrared to stimulate the reflex points on the soles of the feet. By so doing, the product can support natural whole body circulation. The other way of observing Patch-It 's effect is by reference to tests using a thermal imaging camera. In this instance, a specialized instrument called a thermograph is used and this device allows for observation of temperature changes due to the presence of the patch on the soles of the feet. What Patch-It does is to encourage "self-healing" by promoting improved circulation. Patch-It does not heal or cure anything by putting an active ingredient into the body. When you cut yourself and the doctor puts stitches in, the stitch does not heal the wound - your body closes up the wound and the stitches simply allow time for your body to get the job done. Muscular aches and pains that result from poor circulation will ease up.
How does Patch-It help your body cleanse?
Improved circulation should mean better overall cleansing through all normal body channels such as sweat and urine. The "drawing" property of vinegar and the tendency for the patch powder to adsorb fluid assists in this. It should be noted that given the small patch size, only a fraction of what comes out of the body would be reflected in the patch after use.
Why is the patch sometimes wet and sometimes not?
The powder material attracts water. This effectively acts like a "sink" against the skin when using the patch. If there is excess fluid accumulation at the point of the body where the patch is applied or if used at the bottom of the feet where there is a concentration of meridian points, then the patch will most likely be wet. If the patch is applied to a joint or location where there is no excess fluid retention, then the powder will remain relatively dry even after several hours use. This does not mean the patch has no effect because the stimulation effect is still present when the powder in the bag remains dry. Patch-It is effective whether wet or dry after use. The patch turns brown when it is wet due to changes in the powder upon contact with water.
If the patch is dry can I re-use it?
No. Once a patch has been used, it will be slightly moist and for hygiene purposes, this is not recommended.
Is it safe to use?
Patch-It does not deliver anything transdermally into your body. It merely supports your body's own function and in that respect, is safe for regular use. The powder is mildly acidic but not more so than the natural acidity of the skin. Patch-It has been independently tested to ensure that it does not contain heavy metals like lead and mercury.
I used the patch and my joints hurt even more! Why is that?
This is most likely a "healing crisis." Users who experience this will most likely have chronic or "old" complaints. The stimulation of reflex points and associated healthy circulation will act to support the body in its natural recovery process. It is most likely that such users will find that the discomfort is tolerable and will disappear after a few days use of the patch. Another way to view this is to relate to the experience of those who have tried acupressure on the feet. It hurts a lot during the massage but recovery afterwards is promoted. Continue using the patches for few more days and the discomfort should lessen and may eventually subside entirely. If there is any uncertainty whatsoever though, stop use and consult your physician.
What do nano tourmaline and Green Tea do?
Tourmaline is valued as a healing crystal in alternative medicine and this material has found application in many health products such as functional fabrics for clothing. Patch-It is the world's first product of its kind to incorporate nano-tourmaline into the patch. A nano particle is basically very small and this size reduction in turn results in a large increase in exposed surface area of the crystal. Therefore although the tourmaline content in Patch-It "Spa-in-a-patch" is relatively small, its effect has been enhanced through use of this advanced format. Green tea is high in polyphenols (a type of bioflavonoid) and has been added as an antioxidant as added protection for the skin when the patch is wet.
