Oysters and Energy Levels

Hey All,

I haven't found any reported evidence on this around the Internet, but I tend to get a real buzz or burst of energy from eating half a can of canned oysters (about six or seven of them should do it). Has anyone else had this experience?

I don't get the same buzz from taking Zinc supplements, though I feel like Zinc and its impact on testosterone levels would be the most natural explanation.

Any thoughts on this?

I've noticed a mild buzz, moreso from liver though.

I don't notice that personally, buy if I had to guess I'd say it's either the zinc or the taurine, just because shellfish, specifically oysters are very dense in those two things. There are some other libido boosting amino acids in it that it could be though.

taurine, leucine, valine, isoleucine and possibly the zinc..

Yea I think oysters are an aphrodisiac so that's probably what you are experiencing hahahah. I'm allergic to oysters so I cant say if this happens to everyone or not
