🌊According to the esteemed Dr. Alan Gaby MD, ND, DC shell of oyster may be used to source calcium carbonate supplements. The oyster itself can be a good source of iron and zinc. Both of these nutrients are found in organs, tissues, and body fluids.
💦Zinc alone is notably beneficial as an antioxidant, for wound repair, folate absorption, gene expression, insulin response, eye health, and its important for taste. SO…consider incorporating oysters if you’d like to boost any of those functions.
🥖Side idea: To prepare these fresh oven baked oysters from the Chesapeake Bay, you’ll need sourdough, sprinkle blue cheese, melted butter and lemon wedge. This dish is served over rock salt.
