VITAMINS

Vitamin A:
key role in the renewal of cells and the immune system. Vitamin A is involved in the development and renewal of cells: starting with the growth of the embryo, but also in the renewal of the skin and mucous membranes. It also plays an essential role in vision and allows particularly good adaptation to darkness. Approximate content of 100g oyster 75μg floods and AMCJ * 1mg.

Vitamin E:
Antioxidant, like vitamins C and A, selenium., Has virtues against aging of tissues and organs, cell protection (mainly involved in their membrane) and a particular interest in the protection of vessels ( anticoagulant share) approximate quantity of 100g of raw oysters 0.85 mg.

Vitamin C:
It has anti-oxidant properties (against the "aging" premature cells) and stimulates our immune defenses. Ascorbic acid, another name for vitamin C, has the necessary properties for the proper functioning of the human body, especially in the formation of collagen fibers present in many tissues of the body, starting with the skin. Digestive and metabolic level, vitamin C permits good absorption of iron in the body. Moreover, the missing iron Children are more vulnerable to infections.
Approximate content of 100g oyster 5mg and AMCJ floods * 60 to 90mg.

Vitamin D:
Main function of this vitamin: maintain a good absorptive capacity of the gut to the calcium and phosphorus. Thus, it helps strengthen bones and teeth. In older people, lack of vitamin D can also lead to problems mineralization (osteomalacia) and promotes osteoporosis. The latter noted a deterioration of the bone structure and often results in fractures of the wrist, spine or femoral neck.
Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters 5 mcg.

Vitamin B12:
The B vitamins are the beauty and good humor. In combination with vitamins B6 and B9, B12 is used to prevent cardiovascular disease.

MINERALS:

Calcium:
Calcium is essential for bone formation and proper functioning of cells. It is also involved in blood clotting, controlling heart rate, contraction and muscle relaxation. Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters: 92mg and 800mg * AMCJ.

Magnesium:
Magnesium is essential to our physical and mental balance: it contributes to the proper functioning of cells, transmission of nerve impulses in the formation of antibodies, regulation of the heartbeat. He is involved in many enzyme system, particularly related to energy production. Magnesium is indicated in cases of heart palpitations, stress, physical and mental fatigue. It is also advisable for women with spasmophilia and pregnant women. The recommended daily intake is 6 mg / kg; these needs are increased in children, athletes, seniors, pregnant or nursing women. Iron and magnesium are excellent against fatigue and lack of concentration. Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters: 44mg.

Phosphorus:
Phosphorus is involved in the health of bones and teeth, for the proper functioning of nerves and muscles, formation of cells. He is involved in many reactions and energy involved in the absorption and transformation of some nutrients. Approximate content of 100g raw oysters 165mg and 350 mg * AMCJ.

Potassium:
For right heart function. Potassium helps maintain heart rate, digestion, and the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction. It is also essential to cell hydration. The recommended daily intake is 2 to 4g a day, usually covered by a balanced diet. Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters 220 mg.

Sodium:
Sodium is the predominant element in the blood and extracellular body fluids. It is essential for the water balance of the body, as well as regulation of blood pressure. It also plays a vital role in muscle contraction. Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters 280 mg.


TRACE ELEMENTS:

The iron :
Its role is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the muscles and the entire body; without adequate iron intake, lack of oxygen. Result: one is tired, out of breath at the slightest effort, vulnerable to infections.
The recommended dietary allowances are 9 mg for men and 16mg for women settled; these needs are doubled during pregnancy and lactation. Oysters make a significant amount of iron: 90% of women are missing in (source Crédoc investigation CCAF 2004) Four oysters sufficient to cover 100% of the recommended dietary allowances.

The copper :
Essential to guard against infection. This is one of the most important minerals in the body; he participates in the good quality of cartilage and bone in the fight against infections and proper functioning of the heart. It would also fight against inflammatory skin infections. Finally, it facilitates the absorption of iron.

Iodine:
Iodine is stored in the thyroid gland (a small gland located at the base of the neck), and plays a key role in the production of thyroid hormones secreted by the thyroid gland. These hormones have a direct influence on different metabolisms of the body including brain development. To avoid deficiencies, it is routinely added to table salt. Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters about 0,073mg and 0,120mg AMCJ *

Manganese:
This trace element is essential to the effectiveness of vitamin B1. Manganese deficiency can affect the concentration of functions, and lead, in the long term behavioral problems. Copper and manganese iron-related blood contribute to regeneration Our daily requirement of manganese is estimated at 1 to 2.5 mg. Approximate content of 100g of raw oysters and AMCJ *

Selenium:
The anti-aging ... selenium slows aging arterial tissue. Selenium participates in the operation of an enzyme that destroys free radicals, making it an ally in the fight against aging. The recommended daily intake is 50-60 mg in adults and 20 to 60 mg in children. Selenium is a trace mineral that has antioxidant properties and may prevent the occurrence of certain cancers.

Zinc:
Zinc is, among other things, essential for cell renewal, strengthening the immune system, healthy bones, skin, nails, development of reproductive organs. The recommended daily intake is 10 mg; these needs are increased in children, pregnant or nursing women and the elderly. Six oysters provide eight times the daily requirement of zinc, important for the beauty of skin and hair.

Fluoride:
Fluoride limit caries. There are traces in oysters, just enough to where it should be: the teeth.
