The Health Benefits of Oysters

If you’re an oyster lover, we’ve got good news for you. First, our Bellevue Korean restaurant offers two different oyster soft tofu soups for your dining pleasure. Second, you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in your favorite shellfish; like much of the food we get from the ocean, oysters are quite beneficial to your health!

Not only are oysters a low fat and low cholesterol source of protein, they’re also a good source of zinc. Though it may not get as much attention as many other vital nutrients, zinc is an important part of every cell in your body. Zinc is used to repair strands of DNA, provide energy to the body, and fight infections. Men use it in the production of testosterone, which contributes to oysters’ reputation as an aphrodisiac. A deficiency of zinc is attributed to many problems, like a decreased ability to heal wounds, low energy, and inhibited growth.

Make sure you’re getting enough zinc in your diet the fun way, and come down for a bowl of oysters at Seoul Hot Pot!
