If you wear a Zaca Recovery Patch prior to a night of fun and libations, unpleasant morning hangovers may no longer be a problem. The all-natural topical patches can be applied to the skin prior to activities that may cause a hangover, and the hangover may be prevented.
The recovery patch has the potential to prevent fatigue, headache, thirst and nausea; common symptoms of a hangover.
How Does the Patch Work?
The Zaca Recovery Patch works by infusing six different organic ingredients through the skin and into the body to prevent the symptoms of a hangover.
The patch uses a slow topical delivery system called passive diffusion to transport the ingredients across the skin. The diffusion begins when the higher concentrations of molecules contained within the patch diffuse across the skin towards the lower molecular concentration within the body.
Key Ingredients In Zaca Recovery Patch
Alcohol consumption can activate inflammatory signals and the ingredients within the Zaca Recovery Patch have been chosen for their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and alcohol reversal properties.
- Prickly Pear – decreases inflammation by inhibiting inflammatory mediators in the body.
- Milk Thistle – protect the liver from toxins and is often suggested as a treatment for alcoholic hepatitis and cirrhosis.
- Taurine – an amino acid that has shown promise in helping alcohol-damaged liver cells to heal, and may possibly inhibit neurotransmitters that enhance withdrawal symptoms during alcohol recovery periods.
- N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) – compound that is normally present in the body, which also works as an antioxidant. It is used often as a medical treatment for liver toxicity.
Other ingredients in Zaca Recovery Patch also include:
Free radicals form in the body during normal biochemical processes, but alcohol consumption likely increases the number of free-radicals above normal amounts. Lycopene, vitamin C and lipoic acid have antioxidant properties which help neutralize unwanted free radicals, or unpaired electrons, formed in the body during alcohol consumption.
Alcohol consumption also diminishes B-complex vitamins and magnesium from nutritional absorption during digestion. Therefore, boosting thiamine, B5, B3 and magnesium levels with the Zaca Recovery Patch help provide the required nutrients to meet the needs for a body’s normal physiological processes.
Is Zaca Patch FDA Approved?
Since the Zaca Recovery Patch is not a drug, it does not require United States Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, approval. Therefore, the patch has not been evaluated by the FDA and it is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. There have been no clinical tests performed on the Zaca Recovery Patch. It contains only natural organic ingredients deemed Generally Recognized as Safe, or GRAS, for use as a food additive by the FDA. Subsequently, the patch is exempted from the Federal, Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act testing requirements.
It is recommended that a person wear only one Zaca Recovery Patch at a time. The ingredients in the patch have no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizer, but allergic reactions or skin sensitivities to particular ingredients can occur. Sometimes, a person can react to the adhesive that causes the patch to adhere to the skin. A person with any existing medical conditions should consult with their doctor before using the Zaca Recovery Patch.
How to Use the Patch
One small 1 inch by 1 inch gauze-like patch can be applied to any dry, hairless, oil-free area of the skin. A thin adhesive cover is removed from the patch before it is stuck to the skin. The Zaca Recovery Patch is so small that it’s barely noticeable on the skin. One box contains six patches and popular application areas include:
- Inner wrist
- Lower back
- Inner thigh
- Inside upper arm
- Outside upper arm
When to Use the Patch
The Zaca Recovery Patch should be applied to the body prior to alcohol consumption, and should remain on the body for 24 hours to provide full use of the natural ingredients it contains. Since the patch is applied prior to drinking, support is automatically in place when morning arrives. A hangover can occur after just one alcoholic drink or many, depending on the individual.
The patch is water resistant and can be worn during workouts, but is not recommended in the shower or while swimming. A water-proof exterior combined with a sealed skin adhesive prevents water penetration.
Zaca Recovery Patch Effectiveness
Most users of the Zaca Recovery Patch discussed how surprised they were that the product worked so well. The patch has made believers out of many skeptics. Most users have totally avoided any symptoms of hangovers, while others had the advantage of diminished symptoms. Very few of the patch users did not gain any hangover benefits from wearing the patch. The usual headache, nausea and dizziness had returned for these individuals. Correctly following patch application directions and leaving it on the body for 24 hours should help most individuals after a night of heavy drinking.
