Get daily zinc in food form with this 100% pure powder – more than 60 oysters in each bottle!

Oysters are the highest natural source of zinc — 10 times higher in zinc than red meat. 

Why Zinc?

Zinc is responsible for a host of bodily functions including but not limited to the following:

  • supports a healthy immune system
  • plays a role in wound healing
  • supports the skin's integrity and structure
  • affects our brain, how we learn and how memories are formed 
  • important for eye health
  • reduces inflammatory markers that are responsible for age related degenerative diseases
  • important for fertility

Why not synthetic zinc?

Synthetic, isolated vitamins carry the risk of overdosing. Further, the body can recognize, absorb and assimilate food but this is not always the case with synthetics. Our Oyster Zinc contains high levels of naturally occuring zinc as well as other minerals within it to help your body absorb what this little capsule has to offer, in full.

Why Oyster Zinc?

  • 100% pure, non-synthetic oyster powder, made from only the extracted meat of the oyster with no shell included.
  • True food source of zinc with no additives or fillers.
  • Nutrients from more than 60 concentrated oysters in each bottle – the most potent oyster extract available!
  • Also contains 19 amino acids including taurine, 59 trace minerals, 12 vitamins, plus omega 3 DHA and EPA.
  • Bound in peptides, amino acids and organic nutrients, making it very bioavailable.
  • Co-factors include manganese, copper and selenium in the right balance and form for easy absorption.

Our oysters are grown in pristine Atlantic waters along Ireland’s lush coastline and produced using a proprietary artisan process to preserve bioactivity. This process ensures an extremely high quality, pure Oysterzinc extract.

All of the trace elements are present in significant yet sensible concentrations, so they work in harmony as nature intended. On the same note, none of the nutrients in our Oysterzinc are present in concentrations that could upset the body’s natural mineral and nutrient balance.

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. 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


  • Adults: Up to 4 capsules daily, with food, fresh juice or a smoothie.
  • Sensitive Individuals: Adults: 1 capsule, once daily. May increase dose over time if needed.

Important: The supplements we carry are premium, pure and potent. It is important to start with this product slowly, with a lower dosage and increase doses over time. For example, you can start with one capsule every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dose feels right for you.

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 its delicate, toothy texture, umami flavor and briny liquid, folks love to consume them cooked or raw as a delicacy. Our Oyzterzinc is the extract of fresh oysters, produced on the lush coastlines of Ireland under a proprietary process that preserves bioactivity and purity. Thanks to the oyster's rich nutrients, the 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.

This is the best oyster supplement we’ve ever tried. Superior energy and potency, great results.

Gold standard

The Oysterzinc [Smidge™ Oysterzinc] has been an excellent supplement for my health. Perfect combination nutrients and a clean source. Doesn’t get any better and especially when it is so important to know where a product is from and purity. Thank you for offering this unique item.


I'm on my 4th bottle, can't be without the highest source of zinc- especially this winter. I can't have any artificial ingredients or sweeteners and on a strict paleo diet so this is perfection in a bottle. Please continue selling this!


I already feel healthier taking this.

alternative supplement

I've never seen an oyster supplement before. At first it weirded me out but then I read about it's qualities and it makes sense. We're not hunter gatherers anymore, we lack in vital nutrients and we don't live in a"clean" world. Take your supplements!
