Thrive DFT Duo Patch Review
DFT Duo is a diet patch that is part of a range of health and wellness products marketed under the Thrive brand name. Thrive products are produced by a multi-level marketing (MLM) company called Le-Vel.
MLM is not dissimilar to pyramid selling, and businesses that operate such a system are often more focused on the business opportunity than the product so, not surprisingly, some MLM products are not all that good.
However, in order to be fair to Le-Vel, we must point out the company website puts an unusual amount of focus on the products. The information provided is rather hyped up, and somewhat lacking in facts, but the Thrive business opportunity appears to be secondary to the products and that’s unusual with MLM.
We don’t want to become overly focused on the MLM side of things but, for those readers who are not familiar with this kind of marketing, MLM products are usually only available via people who have signed up and become a distributor.
This allows them to earn a commission on the sales they make, but that’s only half the story, If they recruit other distributors they can also earn a commission on the sales their recruits make as well, along with smaller commissions for the sales made by the rest of their downnline. It all sounds very good in theory, but there are a lot of flaws to the concept and the chances of even making a living wage are slim to say the least.
How is Thrive DFT Duo Different From Other Diet Patches?
Apart from the way it’s sold, the big difference between Thrive DFT Duo and other diet patches is it comes in two parts. One half is affixed to left hand side of the body and the other is attached to the right. If this has its advantages they are not explained, potential customers are only told it will cause the “fusion footprint” to become larger.
How Are the Patches Used?
Customers are told to apply the patches to either side of the body. The suggested areas are the inner arms, biceps, shoulders, and upper buttock area. The patches are left in place for 24-hours and the application point should be rotated each day.
People who buy Thrive DFT Duo are encouraged to buy and use two other products as well:
- Thrive Premium Lifestyle Capsules: A capsule that provides vitamins minerals and other nutrients that are intended to rectify nutritional imbalances and boost mental and physical function. There are two versions. One for women and another for men.
- Thrive Premium Lifestyle Mix: A shake mix that provides a further dose of nutrients that are intended to improve the health and help you become the “premium you”.
Although customers are urged to use the three products together for eight weeks, as part of the “Thrive experience”, the patches appear to be intended to be the main weight loss provider.
What are the Ingredients Used in Thrive DFT Duo?
The weights and ratios are not provided, but DFT Duo contains:
- Green Tea
- Aloe Vera
- Chlorogenic Acid (From Green Coffee)
- White Willow Bark
- Beta Hydroxybutyrate
What are the Promised Benefits?
The promised benefits are:
- Supports appetite management
- Provides weight management
- Balanced duo release
- Enhanced delivery technology
- Enhanced bioavailability
- Nutritional support
Are the Ingredients Good Enough to Work?
Some of the ingredients are very good, but there is no way of knowing if enough of each one is included and they are mixed with ingredients that have less to offer and may dilute their abilities. White willow bark is a good example. If you need a natural painkiller it could be for you. If you want to lose weight it is unlikely to help.
We don’t see anything that will offer much in the way of appetite management, but some evidence suggests aloe vera may lower blood sugar levels. Chlorogenic acid can also help with this, but it is more commonly associated with thermogenic fat burning.
Green tea is a good addition because it has proven value as weight loss aid so, if enough is included, it could provide the promised weight management all on its own (if the patches are used with diet and exercise). The caffeine provided by guarana could further support fat burning, but caffeine is not well tolerated by all and could be especially problematic when delivered through the skin and directly to the blood. The delivery process should be very efficient as well because Cosmoperine (trademarked ingredient) is designed to enhance bioavailabilty and improve ingredient absorption
Is There Any Customer Feedback?
Yes, we found lots of feedback and most of it was excellent, but it would have been more credible if it hadn’t been left by product distributors.
Are There Any Side Effects to Thrive DFT Duo ?
Some of the reported side effects include:
- Feelings of lethargy
- Upset stomach
- Changes to the mood
- Feeling strange
Where Can I Buy Thrive DFT Duo?
Thrive products are only available from the Le-Vel website, but you cannot buy them unless you have been referred by a distributor.
How Much Do the Patches Cost?
The price of the patches is only available to Thrive customers who have been referred by a distributor.
Is There A Guarantee?
Customers who return unopened products (at their own expense) within 30 days of ordering them can claim a 90% refund. If the product has been partially used they will only be eligible for a 50% refund.
Is Thrive DFT Duo Worth the Money?
It’s hard to say if the product is worth the money because its price is kept under wraps and there is no proof that it works. It contains some good ingredients, but it may not contain enough and there is a lack of unbiased product reviews.
If it is not too expensive, and helps people to lose weight, it may be worth the money. If it doesn’t work, or people have to stop using it because of side effects, the lack of full money back guarantee means money will have been wasted. There are a lot of unknowns with this product, so potential users will need to think long and hard before committing to buy.
