How many nutrients and minerals are boiavailable transdermally?

So, I started doing the whole magnesium oil thing, and now I'm wondering what else might be best delivered to the body via the skin? I heard recently about a B-12 patch for people with damaged small intestines.

And conversely, could PUFAs applied to the skin lead to oxidative damage inside my body?

Is the chlorine and fluoride in my shower water working against my dietary improvements?

I can't tell you how many times I've put one of those in my Amazon cart, only to delete it at the last second. I got the feeling it was like a Brita filter, the object itself would be reasonable enough, but I'd feel gouged every time I had to buy refill. I do seem sensitive to chlorine though, so it is probably time to just get it.

Interested in whether PUFA is well absorbed. I often use a vitamin E oil for my skin, which uses soybean oil as its carrier.

I use transdermal magnesium oil, too. I go hardcore: natural calm, magnesium oil, and ZMA before bed. I like magnesium

Holy smokes, I have a chlorine filter for my shower, too. Though I often think it's a bit on the tinfoil-round-the-head kinda thing.

The main thing you want to watch out for when you take a shower is the steam, stuff like chlorine becomes a gas and you inhale it. I really recommend a shower filter, you can pick them up for around $30 online.
