Eat Your Oysters!


Are oysters an aphrodisiac? NO. Do they promote male sexual health? You bet they do. And they can greatly enhance your prostate massage and prostate health program.

The myth that oysters are an aphrodisiac is probably due to their excellent nutrient content. It is not that oysters are an aphrodisiac. It is their amazing nutritional value (and especially high zinc content) that enables a man's sexual system to recharge so much more rapidIy.

Oysters contain: Protein, Carbohydrates, and a small amount of Lipids (fats). They are an excellent source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 (all help against fatigue and aid resistance to infection while helping to reinforce the metabolism), Vitamin C and Vitamin D.

Oysters are a very potent and health giving food source. Just 5 average sized oysters provide the daily allowance for magnesium, calcium, iron, copper, zinc, iodine, manganese and phosphorous.

Zinc: The Male Mineral

Oysters are, in fact, the best natural source of zinc on the planet! Zinc is known as the "male mineral". A male sufficiently deficient in zinc will become impotent and unable to father a child.

Zinc is vital in the creation of semen. Zinc is lost from the body with every ejaculation. Most men have or develop some degree of zinc deficiency. Just 1 normal size serving provides about 85mg of zinc!

Oysters are also an excellent source of sodium and potassium. And because they live in the sea, they provide every nutritional trace element on the planet! Many of these trace elements are often deficient in land grown plants and animals. Especially ioidine. So, Oysters will benefit your whole body!

Oysters are very low in cholesterol.

And, oysters fit any diet. There are only about 70 calories in a 100 grams (3 1/2 ounce).
