Transdermal Zinc Picolinate


A patient required high doses of Zinc as picolinate but was unable to tolerate them when dosed orally, as they experienced severe nausea and vomiting. ACPHARM understands that high doses of some nutritional supplements can often cause many patients to experience these side effects. We were able to develop a transdermal cream using Zinc as picolinate to bypass the digestive system in the absorption process. The patient is now able to absorb adequate quantities of Zinc from this formulation and has been maintained on it for over 12 months without any ill effects.
