Smidge® Oysterzinc

Introducing Oysterzinc, a pure zinc supplement made from fresh oysters — aka the highest food source of zinc! Here to support your immune system with natural, whole-food zinc when you're in need.*

Our Oysterzinc is 100% oyster powder, made in small batches from only the meat of the oyster (no shells!). No additives or fillers either.

Each bottle contains the goodness of over 60 hand-shucked oysters. We combed the world to find you the best food source of zinc, partnering with a small aquaculture family in Ireland, where long-time oystermen sustainably harvest oysters from the sparkling Atlantic coastline.

Our process involves slow, gentle convection drying under a low temperature to preserve bioactivity and nutrient integrity, making for the most potent oyster extract around.  

 

Why a natural zinc supplement from oysters?

Oysters contain the most zinc in any food — 10 times higher than the next richest source, red meat!*

But eating an oyster or taking an oyster zinc supplement differs from popping a commercial zinc tablet in an isolated form.

Taking zinc in an isolated form can upset the body's natural mineral and nutrient balance, as it doesn't include zinc's inherent nutritional cofactors. For instance, the body's important copper reserve can become depleted if zinc is taken on its own.

Because Smidge® Oysterzinc is a real food with all of its cofactors, it naturally provides an excellent source of zinc. 

Its natural cofactors include: peptides, amino acids and organic nutrients, making it bioavailable and easy to absorb.*

Plus, it’s rich in naturally occurring vitamin B12 and copper, and a good source of iodine. It also has selenium, which is an antioxidant, like zinc!* 

Still wondering what more awaits once you pry open that clamped silvery shell? Oysters are bursting with: 

  • 19 amino acids (including taurine)
  • 59 trace minerals
  • 12 vitamins
  • Omega-3 DHA and EPA*

All of these goodies are naturally present in sensible concentrations, so they can harmoniously work inside your body.

Nutrients worth more than pearls ;)

What does Oysterzinc do?

When you feel the sniffles or aches coming on, or the stuffiness that precludes a head cold, Oysterzinc can support your immune system. *

This is because zinc is a vital mineral that your body uses in hundreds of ways. Primarily, to nourish and support the immune system. See, the human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (T cells), which help the body control and regulate immune responses.*

Zinc has also been found to shorten the duration of the common cold and to ease the symptoms when taken within 24 hours of the onset.*

On the other hand, zinc deficiency can do a number on immune system function, causing increased susceptibility to various pathogens and a host of health issues. Researchers have discovered that improving zinc levels through diet and supplementation may ease inflammation.*

More health benefits of taking zinc supplements

In addition to loving up your immune system, zinc has myriad documented health benefits. Scientific studies state that zinc may support:

  • Skin integrity and structure*
  • Brain health*
  • Growth, development and cognition in babies and children*
  • Sperm quality and male fertility*
  • Eye health*
  • Occasional diarrhea*

Dosage

Always start with a smidge! Take four capsules at once, per day, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See "low and slow" note below).

Sensitive individuals (adults): One capsule, once daily. May increase dose over time if needed.

Start low and slow: Our supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a minimal dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry area, away from direct light.

Ingredients

Oysters

Vegetarian capsule

Oysters

The oyster (from the Ostreoidea family) is a salt-water mollusk with a rock-hard, irregularly shaped shell encasing a fleshy, slimy, plump body. With their delicate, toothy texture, umami flavor and briny liquid, folks love to consume them cooked or raw as a delicacy. Our Oysterzinc is the extract of fresh oysters, produced on the lush coastlines of Ireland under a proprietary process that preserves bioactivity and purity. Thanks to oysters’ abundant nutrients, zinc is bound in peptides and amino acids with essential cofactors, for fantastic bioavailability. These nutrients include naturally-occurring vitamin B12, iodine, selenium and copper.* 

Vegetarian capsule

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), water. Our vegetable (vegan) capsules consist of HPMC and purified water. HPMC is derived from vegetable cellulose of either pine or poplar. These capsules contain no preservatives, no gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch.

FAQ

What makes Oysterzinc different than commercially available zinc supplements?

Oysterzinc is a natural shellfish food. All of its nutrients are organic in origin, making them 100% bioavailable. The trace elements in Oysterzinc are bound to transport molecules (peptides, amino acids), allowing the body to soak up all of the oysters' zinc and other nutrients.* The high concentration of free amino acids and peptides are also directly available to the blood once consumed, making them fast-acting. 

On the other hand, mineral supplements in an isolated form need to bind to transport molecules during digestion before they can be absorbed, which may affect their bioavailability. It can also upset the body's natural mineral and nutrient balance, as zinc supplements in an isolated form do not include the mineral's inherent nutritional cofactors. For example, the body's important copper reserve can become depleted if zinc is taken on its own. 

All of the trace elements in Oysterzinc are present in significant, yet balanced concentrations, ensuring they work harmoniously as nature intended. This means they will support your body's natural mineral and nutrient balance because you're consuming the mineral as a real food. 

Is Oysterzinc organic?

We harvest the oysters that comprise your Oysterzinc from the pristine Atlantic waters along Ireland's lush coastline. In turn, all of its nutrients are organic in origin, though the product is not certified organic. 

Is this product safe for pregnant women?

Pregnancy dramatically increases nutritional demands for expectant mothers. RDAs (recommended daily allowances) for many nutrients increase during this time and also during lactation. For example, the RDA for zinc increases from 8 mg to 12 mg daily during pregnancy and lactation. Oysterzinc may help meet those increased nutritional demands as it contains the nutrients and cofactors necessary to support growth and development.* Please note it is not appropriate for those with fish or iodine allergies. 

What foods contain zinc?

Here are some foods that are high in zinc:

  • The high and mighty oyster!
  • Beef patties
  • Alaska king crab
  • Cooked lobster
  • Cooked pork chop loin
  • Baked beans
  • Dark meat chicken

    Awesome product

    I love this oyster zinc selenium and iodine product. I can't eat oysters on a regular basis as I don't have access to them, well to fresh ones that is and I don't like the ones out of the can. So I love having a product that can supply those nutrients in an easy way to get them. The tastes is like the sea so wash them down with something that tastes good like juice or coffee.

    Oysterzinc capsules

    So Far, so good! They have a little bit of an oyster smell but I haven’t noticed anything too harsh. I have energy.
