Oysters May Indeed Be Good For the Libido

It's thought to be an old-wives tale that oysters are good for romance. Now, there's some evidence that may be true.

Researchers analyzed the chemical composition of oysters purchased in an Italian fish market and they found two amino acids in oysters that have previously been shown to play a role in the release of hormones, including the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen.
