It’s a bit of a random one, but oysters have so many benefits when it comes to your mental health. They’re high in zinc, which is essential for energy production and brain health, plus zinc levels have been found to be deficient for depression sufferers. Oysters also contain a protein that’s rich in the amino acid tyrosine which, as we said before, your brain uses to produce the chemicals needed to enhance mental function and elevate your mood.
How many do you need? All it takes is three oyster to get more than 100% of your RDA of zinc.
