  • Highly bioavailable Mineral Gluconates as APIs

    Minerals have a crucial role in the organism and are responsible for many important functions.

    Thus, it is important to find Mineral Salts for application as APIs that can be well absorbed. Mineral Gluconates, the salts of gluconic acid, are featured by a high bioavailability which results in a more efficient treatment compared to other mineral sources. They are generally well tolerated and have a low risk of side effects. 

    Gluconic acid or Gluconates show a minimized risk of digestive problems. Gluconates have a chelating effect and bind metal ions which facilitates the transportation and absorption and in the digestive tract which results in the high bioavailability. They are suitable for many formulations and dosage forms like tablets, capsules, powders or liquids which make them an interesting active ingredient for pharmaceuticals. 

    Dr. Paul Lohmann® produces a broad range of Gluconates with a variety of cations, such as Calcium, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Manganese or Zinc in different qualities according to Pharmacopoeia. Additionally Dr. Paul Lohmann® offers full regulatory support with CEPs, ASMFs and DMFs.
