Oysters are also rich in vitamin B12, which helps to keep the body’s nerves and blood cells healthy. High in iron, eating oysters can help to produce more haemoglobin, aiding in the transport of oxygen to all parts of the body. 

Other than vitamin B12, oysters are also rich in vitamin D which is good for promoting bone health, improving the immune system and inflammation.  The best source of vitamin D is sunlight, but if you’re not getting enough sun exposure to generate vitamin D in the body, consuming oysters is a good alternative. 

Oysters are also good for heart health due to their high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

Having high levels of omega-3 fatty acids can help to reduce reduce bad cholesterol, minimizing the accumulation of plaque.
