Oysterzinc is a pure zinc supplement made from fresh oysters — each bottle contains the goodness over up to 60 oysters.
Oysters are the highest whole-food source of zinc, which helps support the immune system of you and your customers.*
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 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.
The oysters are produced in pristine Atlantic waters along Ireland's lush coastline — and by a proprietary artisan process to preserve bioactivity — ensuring an extremely high quality, pure extract.
Smidge™’s Oysterzinc's natural cofactors include peptides, amino acids and organic nutrients, making it bioavailable and easy to absorb. It can also supply vitamin B12, iodine, selenium and copper.*
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 bioavailable concentrations, so they can work harmoniously inside the body.

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.
