Known for their aphrodisiac qualities, oysters are also one of the food sources highest in zinc. One raw, wild, eastern oyster provides 39.3 milligrams of zinc per serving, with the canned format providing 91 milligrams per serving. Studies have also shown that oysters and other types of seafood can improve sleep patterns.
