Are Oysters Really Aphrodisiacs?

New research confirms that oysters are effective for impotence/erectile dysfunction treatment.//

For centuries, old wives' tales have said that eating oysters would stimulate the libido but there has really been no scientific evidence as to why and if this occurs. Casanova, the 18th century lover who used to breakfast on 50 oysters, has been vindicated by a study that proves they really are aphrodisiacs.

The team of American and Italian researchers analyzed bivalve mollusks - a group of shellfish that includes oysters - and found they were rich in rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones. The link was announced to 15,000 scientists in San Diego, California, at a meeting of the American Chemical Society. It generated possibly more interest than any other discovery in the society's 126-year history.

"I am amazed," said George Fisher, a professor of chemistry at Barry University, Miami, who led the research team with his graduate student Raul Mirza and Antimo D'Aniello, of the Laboratory of Neurobiology in Naples. "I have been a scientist for 40 years and my research has never generated interest like this. We think this could be the first scientific evidence of some substance.”

Previous speculation about the powers of oysters has centered on the refueling powers of their high zinc content. Zinc is found in sperm and men lose between one and three milligrams per ejaculation. Dr Fisher and his team used a process called high-performance liquid chromatography to identify which amino acids were present and in what quantities. They found two unusual ones - D-aspartic acid (D-Asp) and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). "They are not the normal amino acids that Mother Nature uses," said Dr Fisher. "You can't just find them in a vitamin shop. Increased level of those hormones in the blood means you are more active sexually," he said. "Yes, I do think oysters are aphrodisiacs.
