Smidge Oysterzinc 120ct
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 oysters that are wild-caught from the pristine Atlantic ocean waters in Ireland, making for the most potent oyster extract around. Our process involves slow, gentle convection drying under a low temperature to preserve bioactivity and nutrient integrity.
Nutrients worth more than pearls ;)
120 capsules (1-month supply)
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 is different than popping a synthetic zinc tablet.
Taking synthetic zinc in an isolated form can upset the body's natural mineral and nutrient balance, as synthetic supplements don'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.
Our Oysterzinc's natural cofactors include peptides, amino acids and organic nutrients, making it bioavailable and easy to absorb. You can also enjoy its vitamin B12, iodine, selenium and copper.*
Wondering what more awaits once you pry open that clamped silvery shell? Oysters are bursting with:
19 amino acids (including taurine)
59 trace minerals
Omega-3 DHA and EPA*
All of these goodies are naturally present in sensible concentrations, so they can harmoniously work inside your body.
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*
Growth, development and cognition in babies and children*
Sperm quality and male fertility*
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.
Store in a cool, dry area, away from direct light.
