I do capsules for quercetin - I usually don't have issues with capsules or tablets so that's my main method of supplementation. Not sure what non-pill methods for quercetin are available.

Sunshine has a blog here in PR about Transdermal applications...maybe she has some advice......

@sunshine44

Compared notes with her a while back on a. thread. Nothing i didnt already know

Im not bad with transdermal. I even have a base cream the conpilunding pharns use

Not everything can be absorbed that way. . Particle size. Lipo or water attraction. Lots of different issues.

here: a discussion of how to get nanno-quercetin.

particle size affects absorption by cells. Smaller, better. I don' yet know how to convert Daltons to nanometers...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6479833/

The average particle size of the coarse quercetin was 50.1 μm. The three methods produced quercetin particles in the nanometre range (276-787 nm) and the smallest nanocrystals of around 276.7 nm were fabricated by bead milling.

dalton= molecular weight

nannometers=length


QUORA MOST POPULAR ANSWER:

Now do you convert DALTON to nanometers?

You shrink him - a lot.
Jokes, Dalton is an Atomic Mass unit and nanometer is a length unit. You can't convert it.
0.1 nanometer = 750 Dalton

Quercetin being used for anti-tumor and anti-cancer...hence a keen interest in delivery systems and particle sizes.
