Treat your loved one to a heart-healthy Valentine’s at Hog Island Oyster Co. Much has been written about the powerful love-enhancing qualities of oysters, but did you know these sweet little bivalves are super-stars of the health-food scene? Each single oyster contains a vast stockpile of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals and organic compounds. In fact, certain minerals are in their highest concentration in oysters. A single serving of raw oysters (3-6) will supply over 1,500 percent of the daily requirements of zinc, an essential mineral associated with supporting the immune system. Furthermore, rich in potassium and magnesium, oysters can actually help lower blood pressure and relax the blood vessels, thereby increasing circulation and reducing strain on the cardiovascular system as a whole.
