I'd say go for it! High in nutrients and good protein. Get wild-caught when possible though since farmed many times has a high omega 6 percentage or lower nutrient contents- and possibly more contaminants like mercury etc.

Oysters are especially nutrient dense. They are the best source of zinc (better than any supplement) and an excellent source of vitamin D, selenium and more. I frequently eat them raw!

alright cool. I also heard that oysters are highly anti-innflamatory and thus may be good for acne. Although they have a lot of sodium.

Yeah, don't worry about the sodium since it comes along with complimentary trace elements and minerals unlike table salt (sodium + chloride). Sodium is vital to health, but damaging in an unnaturally isolated form such as table salt.

Oysters are highly anti-inflammatory due to the nutrients I mentioned and others + Omega 3's.
