One of the many Oyster Extract Benefits of ‘OysterMax® is it can help boost your immune system.
- The high organic zinc content can stimulate the thymus gland to produce thymulin. Thymulin regulates T-cells and T4 Helper cells which are key to the body’s immune defense system and a primary oyster extract benefit.
- The anti-oxidant effects of OysterMax® are another oyster extract benefit during times of ill health as the body undergoes massive oxidative stress in certain situations.
However, cutting edge research from the US has recently shown that too much or too little zinc can knock the immune system out of balance. OysterMax® contains 4.0 mg of zinc per 4 capsules, a safe amount of natural, organic zinc to supplement your diet.
Similarly, taking zinc on it's own in an inorganic format can cause nutrient imbalances which affect the body's biochemistry. Too much zinc can affect copper absorption. Only OysterMax® has all these elements, zinc with co-factors like copper, manganese and selenium, in the right relative concentrations to keep your body's biochemistry balanced and operating at full potential.
People undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy are particularly prone to oxidative stress and impaired immunity. OysterMax® and its oyster extract benefits have been used successfully for more than a decade in France to mitigate the side effects of such therapies. Email us if you are undergoing such therapies for full details on the program we offer.
