According to Rodalesorganiclife.com, oysters can provide you with a host of health benefits, among them, high levels of heart- and brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and enough zinc (the aphrodisiac mineral) to keep your mojo flowing all night.

Store live oysters in the refrigerator at 40 degrees F. if they are not to be used immediately. Place them deep side down (to retain their juices) in an open container. Cover the oysters with a damp towel or layers of damp newspaper. Oyster store this way will keep up to 5 to 7 days.
