Denture Creams

Millions of Americans use denture creams to keep their dentures securely in place. Zinc, contained in a number of popular adhesive creams, can cause copper deficiency in the user. Symptoms of copper deficiency include anemia, difficulty walking, loss of balance, weakness and numbness in the extremities (arms and legs), and paralysis.
GlaxoSmithKline quit manufacturing a number of Super Poligrip creams based on the risk of zinc poisoning and copper deficiency. These include Super Poligrip Original, Super Poligrip Ultra Fresh, and Super Poligrip Extra Care.
