Tasty Flu Shots You Won’t Mind Injecting
London Lennies Offers Happy Hour Flu Season Remedies
Mary Poppins would suggest a spoonful of sugar, but the experts in seafood at London Lennies suggest a mouth full of oysters make the medicine go down. This flu season London Lennies Restaurant is serving up their special Flu Shot Menu including the Flu Shot Oyster Shooter and the Crab Cake Cure appetizer to help keep diners flu-free and healthy.
Oysters and other shellfish delicacies are jam-packed with nutrients that strengthen the immune system and fend off illness. Oysters are high in protein, zinc, calcium, iron and also contain selenium, which produces a protein that strengthens the immune system. It is said that Zinc helps fend off colds by increasing the production of immunity-boosting white blood cells. Just like oysters, crab meat is also rich in immune boosting selenium.
