Zinc health benefits
Zinc is an important mineral that plays a vital role in protein synthesis and helps regulate cell production. It’s mostly found in the strongest muscles of the body, and it’s especially concentrated in the white and red blood cells, retina, skin, liver, kidneys, bones and pancreas. The semen and prostate gland in men also contain significant amounts of zinc.
In the human body, there are more than 300 different enzymes that require zinc to function normally.
Yet zinc deficiency is common. It occurs when people don’t eat enough foods that contain zinc or have problems absorbing and using zinc from foods due to digestive issues or poor gut health, like leaky gut syndrome.
Those most at risk for zinc deficiency include:
- Anyone following a plant-based diet that doesn’t include meat or dairy products
- People who have severe stomach-acid issues and chronic digestive problems like leaky gut syndrome
- Women taking the birth control pill or who are on hormone replacement drugs
Zinc helps support the immune and digestive systems, blood sugar levels, a healthy metabolism and the skin (people with eczema often use zinc).
Also, it is helpful in terms of pregnancy, stress control, hair care, common colds and eye care.

Why are the supplemental facts different on my bottle?
The supplier has advised Smidge that because the Oysterzinc is a fresh, natural product (like Rosita), the actual nutrient content will have some natural variation from batch to batch.
The label reflects that specific batch. The supplement facts shown above is the same as Smidge’s webiste and represents a batch and is reflective of the general numbers that they see.
They do not update the bottle image for every batch as some customers may have products from one batch while others have products from another batch.
Adults: Up to 4 capsules daily, with food, fresh juice or a smoothie. Enjoy with Acerola Puree and fresh squeezed orange juice.
Sensitive Individuals: Adults: 1 capsule, once daily. May increase dose over time if needed.
Important: The supplements we carry are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it’s critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose 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.
