Health benefits + nutrition facts:

The impressive health benefits of oysters come from their vast stockpiles of minerals, vitamins, and organic compounds. In fact, certain minerals are in their highest content in oysters, particularly, zinc. The other components include very high levels of protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, copper, manganese, and selenium. They also contain high levels of niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin C, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Finally, they are a huge source of beneficial cholesterol, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and water. These elements make them an extremely healthy food that can boost your body’s overall function and health.
