What is OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder?
OysterMax® is a powerful cocktail of trace elements derived from carefully-selected oysters grown in the Atlantic ocean on the West of Ireland. It contains all of the 59 trace elements required by the human body in a bio available form and in the optimal balance for absorption by the body. OysterMax® also has the highest concentration of natural zinc of any food supplement on the market today, together with the necessary co-factors (particularly copper, manganese and selenium)  for optimal benefits.

Why is OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder important for nutrition?
OysterMax® is an important nutritional supplement for anyone requiring a boost in their diet. In addition, OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder contains each and every one of the 59 trace elements found in the human body present in significant bio available quantities and in the relative concentration for optimal absorption by the body. This makes it an excellent all-round natural nutritional supplement.

Who should take OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder?
OysterMax® should be taken by anybody who may have low energy levels, poor immunity, skin conditions or poor sexual health.   Groups that are particularly susceptible to nutrient deficiencies include the elderly, vegetarians, athletes and bodybuilders and anybody with a poor or unbalanced diet.

What conditions is OysterMax® suitable for?
While OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder is appropriate for anybody seeking a comprehensive natural nutritional supplement it is particularly suitable for those suffering from trace element deficiency or any of the symptoms associated with it. These conditions include fatigue, poor immunity, and skin, hair and nail problems. In addition OysterMax® is particularly suitable for athletes, body builders and anybody engaged in regular and prolonged physical activity. Studies have shown that up to 70% of such people suffer from some degree of nutrient deficiency due to the increased demands on the body.

What minerals and vitamins does OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder contain?
OysterMax® is the only product we know of that contains each and every one of the 59 trace elements found in the human body present in significant bio available quantities and in the exact relative concentration that nature intended. It is these same trace elements and minerals that regulate the body’s biochemistry and that are responsible for much of our physiological and psychological health.

What is bioavailability and why is it important?
Bio availability describes the fraction of trace elements that reach the systemic circulation. It is affected by many factors, including poor absorption from the gastro-intestinal tract and degradation or metabolism of the food supplement prior to absorption. Bio availability is an issue in food supplements produced only from mineral sources. In contrast, biologically sourced food supplements tend to be absorbed more easily by the body, i.e. they are more bio available.

What are 'co-factors' and why are they important for zinc and other mineral absorbtion?
A cofactor is a non-protein chemical compound that is bound (either tightly or loosely) to an enzyme and is required for catalysis. They can be considered "helper molecules/ions" that assist in biochemical transformations. Zinc requires certain cofactors for proper absorption into the body - which is why pure minerally-sourced zinc supplements can be less than effective. OysterMax®, in contrast, contains all of the cofactors necessary for optimal zinc absorption.

Are there any negative effects associated with taking OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder?
There are no known negative effects associated with taking OysterMax®. However, since OysterMax® is produced from oysters it is not suitable for those suffering from seafood allergies. It is recommended that people suffering from pre-existing medical conditions seek professional advice before taking any food supplement.

How is OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder produced?
OysterMax® is produced only from carefully-selected oysters grown in the clean, unpolluted Atlantic waters of the West of Ireland. These waters are constantly monitored by the Irish Department of the Marine. The quality of the waters in which oysters grow is important as, being filter feeders, they can become contaminated in the more polluted and less monitored environments from which some other oyster extracts are sourced.

OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder is prepared at our dedicated production facility in Ireland, which is approved and monitored by Irish and EU authorities and which conforms to all relevant national and EU directives. All of our product claims are backed by research, as per EU regulations.

Unlike most other oyster extract powders, OysterMax® is not prepared using a freeze-dried process. Instead we use a proprietary process that does not damage or destroy any of the essential bio active nutrients and minerals.

How does OysterMax® Oyster Extract Powder compare with other oyster extracts and zinc supplements?
Standard zinc supplements do not come from biological sources. Instead the zinc is sourced from mineral sources (i.e. mines) and then mixed with inert fillers to form pills or capsules. The problem with minerally-sourced zinc is that it is introduced into the body in isolation. However zinc is absorbed into the body in association with a complex balance of trace elements. For example, zinc absorption depletes copper from the body. This means that taking zinc supplements produced from mineral sources can cause copper deficiency. However natural zinc supplements, such as OysterMax®, deliver all of the associated trace elements along with the zinc. This ensures optimum absorption.

Oysters contain the highest natural source of zinc of any food. This means that oyster extracts make excellent natural zinc supplements. However not all oyster extracts are the same. Many are sourced from oysters grown in unregulated and possibly polluted environments - particularly important since oysters will concentrate whatever substances they are exposed to. Other oyster extracts are produced from overly large oysters and consist mostly of glycogen starch - a nutritionally insignificant substance. Other oyster extracts are also processed using freeze-drying and other damaging processes.

In contrast OysterMax® is produced only from carefully selected oysters harvested from specific geographical locations and at specific times of the year to optimise nutritional content. Both the water in which the oysters are grown and the facility in which they are processed are monitored and regulated by Irish and EU authorities and the production process used is a proprietary process that does not damage the nutritional content of the extract. This is why OysterMax® has the highest concentration of bio actives of any oyster extract on the market today.

How much should I take?
For best results we recommend you take 4 capsules each morning before food with a glass of water. People with higher nutritional demands may take more if desired. Not a substitute for a balanced diet.
