"Credited with enhancing amore for thousands of years, oysters provide large amounts of zinc;  a mineral which boosts prostate health and, anecdotally, sexual function." - Julia Rutland

High in protein and low in fat, oysters are an excellent source of vitamins A, B1(thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), C and D. The National Heart and Lung Institute suggest oysters as an ideal food for inclusion in low-cholesterol diets.

Four or five medium size oysters supply your daily allowance of iron, copper, iodine, magnesium, calcium, zinc, manganese and phosphorus.
