They share identical rules for applying patches. Stick the product to the selected area, hold from 30 minutes to days to remove and stick a new patch in 2-3 cm from the previous gluing. Applying the patch is recommended to be combined with workouts and diets.

Does it work?

The essence of all patches is about the same.

Control of appetite with the help of third-party devices do not teach a person to correctly interpret the processes that occur in the human body. In fact often hunger is disguised banal thirst or appetite.


Statistics show that in the US only for the last 5 years, stun guns have led to the death of 150 people. And although the protective device emit a larger charge current than those that are used in “diet” versions, use the current in the preventive purposes, and without consultation with a doctor is hardly a good idea.

Does it work?

The idea of creating homemade gadgets to study muscle was borrowed from professional EMS devices. They are used in rooms equipped specially for those who work a lot and can’t exercise regularly. In this case, the device will maintain the results achieved, and will not allow the muscles to “dry up”. The perfect solution EMS-training and for those undergoing rehabilitation after injuries.
