supplement socks

water crinkly feet absorb a milliliter of water, use that effect to transport beneficial drugs to the body. verifiable with a niacin flush immediately

Think about water crinkly feet, they absorb what approaches a milliliter of fluid absent any digestive effect, then likely resorb the fluid to the circulatory system

Peptides or longevity drugs like Resveratrol with its particulat bioavailability as well as plasma half life could really use a continuous endogenous source like moist socks.

How could we tell if this idea works right now? create a Niacin flush, the slightly weird warm feeling a person gets from a big dose of niacin.

If you can create a niacin flush with moist socks or a footbath then that strongly suggests a variety of other supplements could be absorbed through socks.

       really, wheres the suggestion that iontophoretic liposomes could use an electric effect at the socks like...piezoelectricity to migrate pharmaceuticals.   

       sheesh.

       You're soaking in it Madge...   

       I've heard that if you stand in a tray of iodine your feet will soak it all up. That is my only contribution to this topic.

       I have also heard that if you put garlic in your socks after a while your breath will smell of it, so this could work. I'll give a bun because the idea is so nice and short! +

       Or as in Japan, you decide to get rid of your co-worker by pouring poison into her shoes, as you do. Didn't work.
