recipe oysters with grapefruit and pickled onion

Fresh oysters FTW for fertility! We love oysters as a delicious, and feels a bit indulgent, fertility food rich in zinc. Zinc supports cell division and growth, sperm quality and motility, immune function and a zinc rich diet has been shown to have favourable conception and pregnancy outcomes. Enjoy in your preconception phase and post birth to replenish zinc stores.
