Smart Patches’ Ingredients

 Smart Patches’ blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes is uniquely suited to help your body process alcohol and reduce hangover symptoms. Here you might find yourself asking, well, why is this blend so uniquely suited to help my body process alcohol? What’s even in it? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out the ingredients breakdown below. 

Why do we get hangovers?

The key to understanding why Smart Patches work is to understand why we get hangovers in the first place. We are all familiar with the symptoms of hangovers — the fatigue, the headaches, the queasy stomach — but are often not as informed about what causes them. In brief, when we drink alcohol it disrupts our normal body processes. This leads to a number of effects, the most common being that it makes you urinate more frequently. This is because alcohol is a diuretic, which means that besides just being plain annoying, frequent bathroom visits deplete crucial vitamins and nutrients. Add onto this alcohol’s ability to irritate stomach lining and cause blood vessel expansion, and you have a potent combination of factors that cause nausea, headaches, and fatigue.

  What are transdermal patches?

Transdermal Patches were originally approved by the FDA in 1979 and since then have been used for all types of wellness products. Transdermal simply means that Smart Patches’ unique blend is absorbed via the skin. This absorption method has tons of benefits because it delivers vitamins directly into the bloodstream. It is simple, effective, and produces an enhanced effect compared to oral methods. Just make sure you get adequate sleep and hydrate as well for optimal results.

The Ingredients


Prickly Pear Extract – This plant extract from the Prickly Pear Cactus is high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals which help reduce the inflammation caused by alcohol. Studies have shown that Prickly Pear Extract can significantly lessen hangover symptoms, specifically nausea, dry mouth, and loss of appetite.  


Dihydromyricetin (DHM) – Dihydromyricetin is another plant extract that comes from the Japanese Raisin Tree. It has been used for centuries as a hangover cure and has been shown to reduce headaches and protect the liver from alcohol-related harm.


Vitamins B-2, B-3, B-9 and B-12 – These four vitamins are part of what is known as the “Vitamin B complex,” the group of eight B vitamins that are crucial for many metabolic processes, including metabolizing alcohol. Because alcohol is a diuretic, it depletes crucial vitamins and nutrients from your body, which vitamin B supplementation can help replenish.
