Are oysters good for you?
There are many great reasons to consume oysters. They are packed full of vitamins, low in carbs and high in protein. They also offer a great source of vitamin D, copper, zinc, selenium, iron and vitamin B12. It is very common in older adults to be deficient in these vitamins & minerals.
Oysters are also low in carbs! If you eat 6 raw or steamed oysters you have consumed less than 50 calories. If that was not enough to convince you, they are also high in protein. Just one can contain 2g of protein (depending on size). We commonly choose chicken for a low-carb protein source, but oysters have half the amount of carbohydrates per serving.
Like fish and other seafood, oysters are high in omega-3 fatty acids (a heathy fat). This makes oysters great for your heart & your brain! They have been proven to reduce the chance of plaque accumulation in the blood vessels and improve overall cardiovascular health. Their vitamin E content also increases the strength of cellular membranes, further protecting against heart disease.
Rich in vitamins, low in carbohydrates, high in protein, cardiovascular benefits, and being a sustainable resource to the natural environment makes it a “no brainer” to add this delicious shellfish to your diet.
