Kirkman's Zinc Sulfate Topical Cream is a soft, creamy, well-absorbed emulsion containing 100 mg of Zinc Sulfate USP (Heptahydrate) per one gram.  This is equivalent to 22 mg of elemental zinc.

Zinc is present in every cell in the body and is also a component of over 200 enzymes.  Actually, zinc is involved in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral constituent in mammals.  Zinc is essential for normal skin, vision, smell, taste, reproduction, brain development, protein synthesis and wound healing.  The best sources of zinc are shellfish, fish and red meats with oysters being the richest source.  Substantial amounts are also found in certain plant foods such as whole grains, legumes, nuts, mushrooms and some herbs.  The zinc from plant sources is not absorbed well because it binds to a fiber compound in plant seeds called phytic acid to form an insoluble zinc-phytate complex that cannot be assimilated. 

How much and when should I supplement with zinc?

Children and adults need between 10 mg and 50 mg daily.  Though the recommended daily value is 15 mg, it is generally recognized that 30 to 50% of ingested zinc is not absorbed due to complexing with phytic acid, perspiration loss, fiber transport through the intestines or because of the competition for absorption with copper, iron and calcium.
