Detailed product information
Smidge®’s 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. Smidge®’s process involves slow, gentle convection drying under a low temperature to preserve bioactivity and nutrient integrity.
Why choose a natural zinc supplement from oysters?
Oysters contain the most zinc found in any food — 10 times higher than the next richest source, red meat. 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.
In addition, oysters have long been considered a natural aphrodisiac, due to their high levels of zinc and other minerals that are important for sexual health and fertility. Zinc is essential for the production of testosterone, which is a key hormone for sexual function in men and women. Oysters also contain high levels of amino acids, such as D-aspartic acid, which has been shown to boost libido and improve sperm quality. Additionally, oysters are also a rich source of other minerals like iron, selenium, and iodine which are important for overall health and well-being.
Since Smidge®’s Oysterzinc's is a natural source of real-food supplementation, the natural cofactors include peptides, amino acids and organic nutrients, making the nutrients bioavailable and easy to absorb. It can also supply vitamin B12, iodine, selenium and copper.*

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): 1 capsule, once daily. May increase dose over time if needed.
Start low and slow: Smidge®’s 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.
Keep out of reach of children.
Do not exceed recommended dose.
