Quoting scientists from Texas, there has been a surge in media reports that watermelon may have effects similar to Viagra. If true, this would give us a natural aphrodisiac, cheap and without prescription.
How can watermelon help enhance the men's lives? Turns out, it has high concentrations of citrulline, which is then converted to arginine in the body, Arginine leads to higher levels of nitric oxide which is a vasodilator improving the blood supply to tissues.
However, the reports that watermelon is similar to Viagra may be grossly exaggerated. Watermelon ingestion does improve blood supply everywhere in the body, however without focussing on "where it is needed". As such, you would need to eat lots of watermelon to match the effects of Viagra. Before you try that, don't forget the potential diuretic effects of watermelon!
