The Real Story Behind Thrive: DFT Technology vs. Traditional Patch Myths

Redefining Wellness with a Holistic Approach to Health & Weight Management

I just did a Google search for the term “Thrive patch.” It brought back about 24 million returns (give or take a few hundred thousand). Why am I telling you this? Because if you’re talking about the Le-Vel (the multi-billion dollar health and wellness company, and the brains behind the globally-popular Le-Vel Thrive Experience), there’s actually no such thing as a ‘Thrive patch.’

I know what you’re thinking: “No such thing? Of course there is. I see people online talking about the Thrive patch all the time.” No, I’m not calling you crazy; like I said, the term ‘Thrive patch’ is all over the place. But where you won’t see those words together is in any of the official Le-Vel marketing, advertising, or packaging. This is because what Thrive offers as part of its three-step Thrive Experience isn’t a patch at all; it’s a proprietary new technology designated as Thrive DFT — and that’s a distinction worth investigating.

Understanding Traditional Weight Management Patches

Although weight management patches have seen a surge in popularity in recent years, the idea of transdermal patches has been around for a long time. In fact, the first transdermal patch was approved by the FDA in 1979. These patches are designed to release ingredients directly through the skin and into the user’s bloodstream (rather than through the digestive tract where important ingredients may be metabolized before they can be absorbed into the blood). Medicine delivery via patch found early success in helping users break smoking habits (nicotine patches) overcome motion sickness (scopolamine patches), or even for contraception.

Patches demonstrated some effectiveness in these areas, so it’s not surprising that transdermal patches would make the leap to weight management.

Today’s weight management patches purport to help users curb cravings, increase fat breakdown, boost metabolism, block sugar absorption, etc. To make this happen, they generally include some combination of the following ingredients:

  • acai berry
  • bitter orange
  • ephedra
  • green coffee bean extract
  • green tea
  • Hokuto mint (Japanese minit)

Looks pretty good on the surface, right? The problem is that (with the exception of green tea and green coffee bean extract) there isn’t empirical evidence to link these ingredients to healthy weight management. Despite the hype about miraculous, near-instantaneous results from these patches, there just isn’t much scientific backing.

It’s hard to say whether any weight management patches can fulfill their promise of ease and sustainability.

The Thrive Difference

The bottom line is that there’s a better-than-average chance that weight-loss patches don’t work — at least not as dramatically as advertised. But what about Le-Vel Thrive?

The main reason Le-Vel doesn’t use the term “Thrive patch” is because Thrive DFT is something innovative and unique. It’s not a ‘patch’ at all. Thrive DFT is a proprietary, patented technology, setting it apart from the transdermal topical solutions at the center of so many diet fads.

DFT stands for derma fusion technology and represents a new advancement in wearable nutrition. The website describes DFT as providing “a delivery rate benefiting [the user] over an extended period of time,” but for those interested in weight management, the most significant difference is in the Thrive lifestyle formula the DFT contains.

The DFT formula consists of a veritable who’s who of essential nutrition and beneficial plant extracts — all fully natural. In other words, the purpose behind Thrive DFT (and the rest of the Thrive Experience) isn’t weight loss, but effective, sustainable lifestyle improvement that includes weight management among a host of other benefits, such as:

  • Joint-function support
  • Digestive support
  • Antioxidant support
  • Cognitive function support
  • Immune support
  • Relief from general discomforts
  • More peaceful sleep
  • Mood support
  • Lean muscle support
  • Cognitive function support

By providing essential nutrition in the form of vitamins, minerals, probiotics, aminos, and antioxidants, DFT helps address the malnourishment that is all too often prevalent in modern diets. It fills nutrition gaps, giving the body the resources it needs to get its own natural processes operating optimally.

All well and good, but how does DFT approach weight management? Consider the following ingredients:

Beyond Just Weight Management

Those listed above are only a few of the active ingredients found in DFT, which is itself only a third of the complete Thrive Experience. Daily capsules, shakes, and the Thrive DFT — taken all together and used as directed, these products deliver a holistic approach to personal wellness. Weight and appetite management is certainly part of that, but it extends so much further, supporting the various bodily systems you depend on to get the most out of your day.

But guess what? The Thrive Experience can’t do it on its own — at least not entirely. The right nutrition can make a big difference, but if you want to get the best possible results, you need to supplement your supplements with healthy eating, the right amount of rest, and increased physical activity. Thrive DFT supports a healthy lifestyle; it’s not a substitute for one.

Try DFT… and Thrive

Want to thrive in your weight management efforts? Hoping to see the inches disappear from your waist? Interested in looking and feeling better? Thrive DFT can help, provided that you’re willing to put in the effort. DFT isn’t a weight loss patch and it certainly isn’t some magical get-fit solution promising instant results. It is, however, a revolutionary approach to weight management that prioritizes optimal nutrition and positive lifestyle changes. And in the end, that’s the best, most sustainable path to lasting improvement.
