A lot can happen in a decade. And in the case of Le-Vel, sometimes you don’t even need the full decade to make real change happen.
Founded back in 2012, Le-Vel Thrive exploded onto the health-and-wellness scene. Within a few short years, it had amassed an extremely dedicated following and a veritable army of enthusiastic sales reps. By 2017, the company joined the ranks of unicorn startup businesses, achieving over $1 billion in sales. Then, just two years later, they did it again.
What’s the secret to this amazing growth? That can be a difficult question to answer. For one thing, Le-Vel’s direct-selling model allows it to field an engaged, knowledgeable sales force without the costly overhead of hiring in-house. For another thing, Le-Vel’s cloud-based infrastructure eliminates the need for physical offices, and gives the company increased agility and adaptability. But if you were to ask its customers what really sets Le-Vel apart, they’d likely answer “the products.”
And the Le-Vel product that has garnered the most media attention across the past nine years is undoubtedly the Thrive DFT.
Here, we discuss Thrive DFT: Its uses, benefits, reviews, and more.
What Is DFT?
If “Thrive DFT” doesn’t ring any bells, then you might have heard of it by another name like the Thrive Patch even though it is not a patch.
“Thrive Patch” is a term that gets thrown around a lot on social media, in Thrive product reviews, and sometimes even in conversations with others who purchase the products. However, the first thing worth recognizing about Thrive DFT is that it is not a weight-loss patch. Thrive DFT stands for Derma Fusion Technology. And while it is designed to adhere to the skin, it’s a new technology unrelated to the transdermal patches used in nicotine treatments, pain medication, hormonal treatments, and others.
Additionally, while transdermal patches are usually stand-alone products, Thrive DFT is designed to work as part of the Le-Vel Thrive Experience. The Thrive Experience is a daily three-step process, consisting of special Thrive capsules, micronized shake mix, and DFT. Users take the capsules first thing in the morning right when they wake up, wait 20 minutes and then drink a Thrive shake, and finally apply the DFT. The DFT delivery system contains a special nutritional formula, providing vital nutrients and energy throughout the day.
How Do You Use Thrive DFT?
As mentioned above, Thrive DFT is an essential part of the Thrive Experience. But it is only one part; if you want to get the most out of DFT, then you need to make sure that you’re taking the full Thrive Experience and following all of the Thrive instructions that come with the products. If you aren’t using the capsules or shake mix properly, then you shouldn’t expect to enjoy the full benefits of the DFT.
When applying the DFT, first clean and dry an area of relatively lean muscle — biceps, forearms, and shoulders are all popular locations. Then, simply place the DFT on the skin. The DFT is designed to be replaced once every 24 hours (give or take). Once the 24 hours are up, remove the DFT and discard it. Then, locate a different lean, dry, clean area of skin to apply the next DFT.
What Does Thrive DFT Do?
Ok. We know that the Thrive DFT is not a “Thrive Patch,” we know how to use it, and we know that for best results you need to make sure that you’re using Thrive DFT as part of the entire Thrive Experience. But what exactly are the benefits of DFT?
The idea behind the Thrive Experience is that most of us have nutritional gaps in our diets. Thrive fills those gaps, by delivering essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, plant extracts, enzymes, and antioxidants. The unique three-step process gives users a burst of nutrition in the morning when their bodies are most receptive, followed by sustained energy and ongoing nutrition throughout the day. This is all to fulfill one overarching purpose: to give your body the nutrition it needs to function at its best.
When used properly and in conjunction with the other two steps, Thrive DFT benefits may include:
- Improved weight management
- Increased cognitive performance
- Healthier joint function
- Reduced general discomfort
- Lean muscle support
- Digestive support
- Immune support
- Better circulation
- Increased mental acuity
- Improved appetite management
- Increased energy
And, as an added bonus, the Thrive Experience has also been shown to be essentially side-effect free.
Obviously, results may be different for specific individuals. That said, Thrive reviews are generally very positive, and demonstrate just how effective Thrive DFT (and the rest of the Thrive Experience) is.
Thrive DFT Reviews
If you’re interested in developing a clearer picture of the Thrive DFT and its effectiveness, then you have two basic options: You can try it, or you can listen to others who’ve tried it. Thrive currently offers a two-week trial, so going straight to the source and seeing what the Thrive Experience is all about may not be a bad idea. Still, if you’d like to get a few more opinions before you commit to anything, then online reviews are probably the way to go.
The most likely place to start is by visiting the Thrive website — Le-Vel has a page dedicated to reviews and testimonials by various customers. Of course, if you’d like to look for reviews that are a bit more objective, then you can always go through Google. Typing “Thrive Patch Reviews” into the search bar should help you get the inside scoop on DFT (even if the part “patch” part isn’t strictly accurate).
As you check out reviews, one thing that is likely to strike you is just how happy most of the reviewers are with the products. Even the Better Business Bureau — an organization designed specifically to give customers a place to complain about businesses — shows above average reviews for Le-Vel Thrive. And of the negative reviews on the site, most have to do with smaller issues related to shipping or payment, and nearly all have been satisfactorily resolved by the company, earning Le-Vel an A+ rating with the BBB.
In other words, it looks like the DFT patch really is on the level.
There’s no denying that Le-Vel Thrive has made an impact on the health and wellness industry. And, thanks to Thrive DFT (which a lot of the world still insists on calling “Thrive Patches”), it’s also made an impact on the social consciousness. But how effective is DFT, and can it really help improve your life?
That’s a question that only you can answer for yourself.
