Analyzing Thrive DFT’s Effectiveness vs. Common Patch Perceptions

Why Thrive DFT isn’t a ‘Thrive patch,’ and a closer look at why that’s a good thing.

Nearly everyone who is interested in wellness has heard about Le-Vel Thrive. Poised to reach $3 billion in total sales within the next few years, Le-Vel was founded in 2012 and almost immediately took the world by storm. Their mission? “To improve lives through premium quality nutritional products… and help everyone to THRIVE in all areas of life.” The Le-Vel product line supports this objective through top-quality supplementation, skin-care solutions, and more, but perhaps their greatest innovation is the Thrive Derma Fusion Technology — DFT for short.

Thrive DFT is a game changer in wearable nutrition. Designed to be placed on the skin and worn over a 24-hour period, DFT delivers nutrition at a sustained rate over an extended period of time. This has led many people — Thrive enthusiasts and others — to begin using the term ‘Thrive patch’ to describe the Thrive DFT. But Derma Fusion Technology is not a patch in the traditional sense. Here, I’ll address some common questions about Thrive DFT, and take a closer look at what makes this new approach so effective.

Understanding Thrive DFT

To get a better idea of what Thrive DFT is, it’s important to first recognize its place within the larger Le-Vel Thrive Experience. The Thrive Experience is a daily three-step program of nutritional supplementation that consists of Thrive Lifestyle Capsules, Thrive Premium Lifestyle Mix, and Thrive DFT. Taken as directed, these products help create a synergistic approach to health and well-being. The Thrive Experience is structured to promote healthy weight management, improved energy, cognitive performance, mood support, and overall vitality.

At the heart of the Thrive DFT is a mechanism that goes well beyond basic transdermal patches. Derma Fusion Technology places nutrition front and center, providing users with a wearable solution for filling the nutrition gaps found in most modern diets. This is one of the most important aspects of Thrive DFT and the reason why it isn’t appropriate to call it a Thrive patch. DFT is a new approach. It doesn’t simply repackage transdermal patch solutions; it goes back to the drawing board to create something unique and powerful. In fact, DFT is legally recognized as a proprietary technology by the US Patent Office.

That said, while Thrive DFT is certainly noteworthy, it’s just as important to recognize that it is not a standalone solution. Even when used in conjunction with the full Thrive Experience, DFT will not magically transform a person’s health or appearance without any effort on their part. Instead, DFT should be viewed as part of a holistic approach that also incorporates personal fitness tracking, increased physical activity, healthful eating, and an ongoing commitment to self-improvement. In essence, DFT helps establish a strong nutritional foundation that you can use to build up your life.

Debunking Common Patch Myths

The idea that every adhesive wearable is automatically a ‘patch’ is just one of the misconceptions averted by Thrive DFT. There are many commonly-held perceptions about patches that are worth addressing.

On the one hand, there are those who think that patches and other wearables are complete scams, providing users with nothing more than a physical placebo. On the other hand, some people think of wearables as the ultimate delivery mechanism, circumventing all of the potentially negative issues associated with intravenous or oral delivery methods.

The reality is that DFT is capable of infusing the skin with a powerful nutritional formula that remains available to the body throughout the entire day, but that doesn’t mean that every wearable (or even every patch) is of the same quality.

Yes, traditional patches for fighting nicotine addiction, combating seasickness, delivering blood-pressure medication, and providing pain relief are all fairly well established. Weight-loss patches, on the other hand, tend to be less of a sure thing. Most modern weight-loss patches make big promises about their effectiveness, while consisting of ingredients that have not been shown to provide any real benefits. Even worse, some types of patches may lead to unwanted side effects. Scopolamine (for example) — such as is commonly found in anti-nausea patches — has been associated with eye pain, confusion, seizures, agitation, vomiting, and even hallucinations.

This is not the case for Thrive DFT. The Thrive Lifestyle formula found in Derma Fusion Technology wearables uses proven ingredients naturally derived from beneficial plant extracts, coupled with other essential nutrients. It is effective, while also being free from possible side effects. Provided that the user fully commits and follows the directions (and doesn’t have any preexisting allergies or sensitivities to any of the ingredients) they can expect to see positive lifestyle enhancements without any risk of unwanted adverse impacts.

Thrive DFT Ingredients

As previously addressed, Thrive DFT uses only naturally sourced ingredients. The formula itself consists of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, and D3, along with folate, chromium, and selenium. Additionally, it incorporates the following beneficial plant extracts and friendly gut bacteria:

  • CoQ10 (Ubiquinone): An antioxidant that promotes cardiovascular function and overall vitality. There is also research to suggest that CoQ10 may play a role in counteracting the decline of antioxidant levels associated with aging.
  • Cosmoperine®: A derivative of black pepper. Cosmoperine enhances the bioavailability of other nutrients, improving the absorption and utilization of compounds in the human body.
  • ForsLean®: Coleus forskohlii root extract. Forselan has been extensively studied and evidence suggests that it helps promote lean muscle growth and fat reduction.
  • Ginger Root Extract: A natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Ginger is also associated with healthy weight management.
  • Glucosamine: A compound used in the construction and repair of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the fluid surrounding joints.
  • Glutamine: An essential amino acid used for building muscle tissue proteins, detoxifying the liver, protecting the digestive tract, and supporting immune-system functions.
  • Grape Seed Extract: A concentrated distillation of grape seeds that has been linked to heart and brain support.
  • Irvingia Extract: An extract of the fruit of the Irvingia gabonensis tree. Research suggests a link between Irvingia extract and reduced fat cell growth.
  • Lactiplantibacillus Plantarum: A probiotic that also helps improve blood pressure and alleviate depression and anxiety, while also reducing inflammation (particularly within the bowels).
  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus: Probiotic bacteria that plays a major role in combating various forms of infection and supporting healthy digestion.
  • Lactobacillus Helveticus: Beneficial lactic acid bacteria that promotes overall gut health while also helping combat high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and sleep problems.
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus: A beneficial bacteria that has been linked to improved gut health, reduced likelihood of tooth decay, UTI prevention, and healthy weight loss.
  • Natural Caffeine: A stimulant extracted from guarana, green tea, and green coffee beans. The benefits of natural caffeine are supported by a wealth of research that suggests it may help with brain function, boost metabolism and fat burning, and enhance physical performance.
  • Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA): A natural pain reliever used to reduce general discomfort.
  • Theobromine: A compound derived from cocoa seeds. It may help regulate blood pressure and promote healthy cardiovascular functions.
  • White Willow Bark Extract: A Natural anti-inflammatory that is thought to alleviate discomfort and promote improved joint health.

Once again, each of these ingredients is naturally sourced, and each one plays a key part in personal health and fitness. From improving sleep to helping reduce joint discomfort, the Thrive DFT formula is built from the ground up to support your transformation into a more healthy lifestyle — but the ingredients themselves can only go so far. To get the most out of Derma Fusion Technology you will also need to do your part in terms of increased exercise and establishing health-positive habits.
