Essential Vitamins:
Duck eggs boost your vitamin intake and provide considerable amounts of vitamins A and B-12. The vitamin A from your diet promotes new cell development to keep your tissues healthy and also maintains good eyesight. A duck egg contains 472 international units of vitamin A -- one-fifth of the recommended daily intake for women and 16 percent for men. The vitamin B-12 in duck eggs keeps your nerves healthy and promotes red blood cell function. Each duck egg boasts 3.8 micrograms of vitamin B-12, more than your entire daily recommended B-12 intake. It also contains small amounts of several B-complex vitamins, as well as vitamins D and E.

Beneficial Minerals:
Duck eggs also offer nutritional value because of their selenium and iron content. Selenium supports healthy immune function and helps you make thyroid hormones. Iron helps your red blood cells carry oxygen and plays a role in energy production. Each duck egg contains 2.7 milligrams of iron -- 34 percent of the recommended daily intake for men and 15 percent for women -- as well as 25.5 micrograms of selenium, or 46 percent of your intake requirement. Duck eggs also contain small amounts of zinc, phosphorus and calcium.
