How healthy are oysters?
Research shows that oysters are particularly great for your immune system. Raw oysters are rich in zinc, selenium and omega-3 fats as well as being a fantastic source of protein, iron and other minerals. The high zinc content promotes white blood cell reproduction which target bad bacteria and offensive microorganisms in your body. Selenium is equally beneficial to your immune system as an antioxidant which promotes the health of your blood vessels. There is even evidence to suggest that the rare amino acids in raw oysters are a great aphrodisiac. Buy oysters online here and find out!
