Understanding the Weight Loss Patch

Updated on March 14, 2011

The Slimming Patch is rapidly becoming one of the most popular rapid weight loss methods in the world. Although it is immensely popular in Europe, the weight loss patch is manufactured in the United States and has been approved by the FDA.  Similar to a nicotine patch that is used to quit smoking, the Slimming Patch is a three centimeter square patch that is placed on a hairless part of the body and worn throughout the day. The medication in the patch works transdermally, which means that it is absorbed through the skin.

The Slimming Patch contains brown seaweed, which is known for its beneficial levels of iodine. Because these patches contain 100% natural ingredients, there is very little risk of side effects associated with their use, making them a safer alternative to many popular diet pills and other weight loss products on the market. Iodine is known to help prompt the thyroid gland to release thyroxin, which is beneficial for regulating metabolism. The iodine from the slimming patch is absorbed into the bloodstream.

The Slimming Patch is not the only weight loss patch on the market, but it is one of the most popular transdermal weight loss systems out there, primarily because of the fact that it is all natural and easy to use. The benefits of iodine for increasing energy levels and metabolism have been scientifically proven. In addition, there are no dangerous risks to blood pressure levels associated with iodine extracted from seaweed like three is with iodized salt. 

The Federal Trade Commission warns that consumers should beware of certain types of weight loss products that make outlandish claims or do not live up to their expectations. The natural ingredients found in the Slimming Patch have been scientifically proven to aid in weight loss, but there are a handful of other weight loss patches and products on the market that are nothing more than weight loss scams. The makers of the Shape Patch claim that those who use it can keep pounds and inches off for an entire year. The FTC recently made manufacturers of Peel Away the Pounds pay $1,000,000.00 back to buyers due to faulty claims made in advertising campaigns. When buying weight loss products, dieters should always rely on their own intuition. Read product reviews from other users and check the product ingredients before purchasing something to help you lose weight.
