To Better Days has a range of active patches to help those experiencing sustained discomfort. Our easy to use adhesive patches contain a patented combination of Vitamin D and Dextrose to offer a topical and targeted option that supports the health of joints, muscles and nerves. Our mission is to give you more get up and go, more freedom and get you back to feeling like yourself again by helping to soothe long-term discomfort.
Since our launch last year, we have shipped our patches all over the world to people who experience a variety of conditions, from arthritis and back injuries to sciatica and Ankylosing Spondylitis. We have been lucky to have over 70, five-star reviews on TrustPilot where people have shared their experience on using patches and the difference they have made to their everyday lives.
Do you want to learn more? Well, here are 10 things you should know about To Better Days active patches and how they could help you.
1. Our patches are completely unique
Our patches provide a topical, targeted and non-medicine alternative to help support the health of joints, muscles, or nerves. We have removed the need for creams through the use of dermatologically tested adhesive patches meaning you can wear these patches for up to 24 hours, even while you’re most active!
2. You can use them for a number of conditions
Our patches work best for localised pain, so you can apply the patch directly to the source of discomfort and feel relief in as little as 30 minutes. They can be used all over the body and for a number of conditions, including:
- lower back pain,
- knee pain,
- post-injury nerve pain,
- elbow pain,
- back pain,
- neck pain,
- rheumatoid-arthritis related pain,
- wrist pain, and more.
3. Our ingredients’ combination is one of a kind and developed by a doctor
The combination and dosage of ingredients in our patches was developed by a neuropathic doctor, Dr John Lyftogt and his wife Maria Lyftogt, a physical education therapist. With their specialist knowledge in the chronic pain space, they discovered how powerful the combination of vitamin d and dextrose could be on persistent pain.
Vitamin D has been found to reduce the markers of inflammation and is proven to help maintain normal bones and muscle function. While the dextrose in the patches, which are chemically identical to glucose, provide sugars to the area that acts as a ‘cell food’ for regeneration.
This means our unique combination of ingredients, can target the source of discomfort, enabling the cells to function normally and therefore reduce pain. More on how our patches work here.
4. They’re classified as kind and safe to skin
The ingredients in to Better Days patches are completely natural and the patches have been dermatologically tested determining that they are kind and safe to skin. There are no artificial ingredients and they’re completely free from gluten, lactose and latex, with a low risk of allergic response. They are also suitable for vegetarians (but please don’t eat them!)
5. They are targeted, and you can use them all over the body!
You can use the patches anywhere on the body that you are experiencing discomfort. We even have two different sized patches (which contain the same amount of Vitamin D and Dextrose), so you can find the right fit depending on where you are experiencing pain.
Our Big Joint Patches are for larger, flatter areas of the body such as the back, thigh, lumbar, arm and leg. The Small Joint Patches are for smaller areas, like the fingers or wrists, necks, ankles, and other areas that can be tricky to cover (some people prefer them to the large size for their knees).
Not sure which size is best for you? Give our Trial Pack a go! It contains 6 Small and 3 Large sized patches at a discounted rate so you can figure which works best for you.
6. They are fast acting and have been found to work in as little as 30 minutes
In our consumer testing, 83% of participants said the patches helped with the pain, feeling a difference within the first day of usage! And 63% felt the difference to their pain in just 30 minutes of application.

7. They’re made in the UK
Our exclusive product is the first of its kind and made in the UK! We are proud that our patches are manufactured here on our doorstep. This allows us to have shorter lead times on deliveries, have greater quality control and most importantly lower our carbon footprint.
8. You can use them while taking Vitamin D supplements
Our patches are safe to use with Vitamin D supplements as they provide Vitamin D through the skin, similar to the way that we get it from the sun, which is known to self-regulate (Vitamin D3).
However, if you are taking a high dosage oral supplementation, we would recommend getting vitamin D levels tested regularly (after a month of patch usage) and consulting your doctor if you have any concerns.
8. Our products are sustainable!
We care about helping you, as well as helping the plant! So, on top of being free from artificial ingredients and being made here in the UK, our packing is also 100% recyclable (and we are moving towards biodegradable patches too).
10. We have a subscription available
