Have you guys ever experienced when someone orders oysters, and friends joke saying, “Do you have plans with your wife or your girlfriend tonight?” I have heard that sentence so many times. So I wonder, do oysters have scientifically proven effects on libido?

So I searched through literature. I could not find any scientific evidence about oysters improving libido. But, if we talked about animal products that might increase libido, there are mentions in Eastern medicine wisdom. From the belief of “We consume the power from what we eat.” So if we want to improve our penis, we eat a mammal’s penis.

Oyster
Oyster is rich in Zinc and Selenium

Unfortunately, there is still no scientific evidence to support these ideas. There is one well written study from New Zealand about whether Deer velvet shows any positive effect on erections or in male or female sexual function? The answer, there are still no significant answers. If we take a closer look at the nutritional facts on oysters. Oysters are rich in Vitamin B12, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin D and Iron. 

100 grams of oysters (6 medium size) contain:

  1. Vitamin B12 : 324% of the daily recommend amount
    • Essential for nervous system maintenance
  2. Zinc : 605% of the daily recommend amount
    • Essential in immune system health
  3. Selenium : 91% of daily recommend amount
    • Antioxidant
  4. Vitamin D : 80% of daily recommend amount
    • Essential in immune system health
  5. Iron : 37% of daily recommend amount
    • Essential in hemoglobin production

However, oysters are loaded with fat, cholesterol and sodium, so be careful with that. From my opinion, I think oysters are just one kind of nutrient-rich food whose appearance is like female genitalia, juicy with a fresh scent. So it possibly make us think about that kind of activity, what do you think? Any questions, you can discuss with your Andrologist.
