Why Patches Are Now In My Peri Toolkit

by Kirsten

Navigating the complexities of perimenopause has been a challenging journey for me. From intense migraines and brain fog to persistent fatigue and joint pain, finding effective relief has been essential. As I build my toolkit for managing my symptoms, I am constantly reassessing my nutrient intake, diet, sleep, exercise, and overall well-being. Recently, I discovered biodegradable vitamin and mineral patches from Kind Patches, a simple and easy addition to my day. I’ve been using the Recover and Menopause patches during the day and the Sleep Extra Strength patch at night, and I have to say I am now a bit of a superfan of the whole patch concept.

The Science Behind Vitamin & Mineral Patches

Kind Patches utilizes a transdermal delivery system that allows vitamins and minerals to be absorbed directly through the skin into the bloodstream. This method bypasses the digestive system, ensuring more efficient absorption and utilization of nutrients. This delivery system maximizes the benefits of each ingredient, providing a steady release of nutrients throughout the day or night. Each patch should be on for around eight hours to get full support. Ironically, most multivitamins contain a lot of stuff we just don’t want and our bodies don’t need, such as fillers, and they can be hard to swallow and inconvenient.

I’m Doubling Down for Relief

Given the intense nature of my perimenopausal symptoms, I’ve taken an approach that combines both the Recover and Menopause patches during the day. After my morning shower, I apply one patch on each arm—Recover on one arm and Menopause on the other. This dual-patch routine has proven to be incredibly effective in relieving my symptoms. When I tested a week with only one patch, I still got benefits, but there was a noticeable reduction. When I did a week of no patches, my symptoms significantly increased. By using both patches simultaneously, I’ve noticed a remarkable improvement in my ability to manage daily challenges.

The Menopause Patch

The Menopause patch is designed to address common symptoms associated with hormonal changes, including hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. Some of the key ingredients include:

  • Black Cohosh: Known for its effectiveness in reducing hot flashes and night sweats.
  • Chasteberry: Helps balance hormones and manage mood swings.
  • Red Clover: Provides phytoestrogens that mimic estrogen, helping to relieve various menopausal symptoms.

The Recover Patch

The Recover patch supports overall wellness and boosts energy levels, addressing fatigue, cognitive function, and joint health. Key ingredients in the Recover patch include:

  • Vitamin B12: Essential for energy production and cognitive function.
  • Magnesium: Helps with muscle relaxation and reduces fatigue.
  • Vitamin C: Supports immune function and joint health.

Improving The Sleep Disturbances

In the evening, after a relaxing bath, I remove both the Recover and Menopause patches, and I apply the Sleep Extra Strength patch. Good quality sleep is always crucial but especially during perimenopause because it helps our body regulate moods, maintain energy levels, and contributes to our overall well-being. This patch is formulated with ingredients that promote natural relaxation and improve sleep quality. Key ingredients include:

  • Melatonin: Regulates the sleep-wake cycle and helps induce sleep.
  • Valerian Root: A natural sedative that promotes relaxation.
  • L-Theanine: An amino acid that helps reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality.

The Impact on My Perimenopausal Symptoms

Vitamin and mineral patches have become a cornerstone of my perimenopausal symptom management. The convenience of applying a patch and experiencing sustained natural relief throughout the day and night is now very much part of my normal daily routine. With the Recovery and Menopause patches supporting me during the day and the Sleep Extra Strength patch enhancing my nighttime rest, I feel more balanced, energized, and active in my symptom management.
