Watermelon and sex

Watermelon is one of the most popular fruits in the world. Millions of people love to munch and crunch the juicy fruit especially on a hot day.  It’s sweet and juicy, making it the perfect treat to quench your thirst during the summer heat.

This large round fruit has a green rind and bright red flesh. It’s also packed with nutrients, including antioxidants and vitamins A and C.

However, apart from the many health benefits, does watermelon also come with a bigger benefit for men? Latest scientific studies suggest that watermelon may be a viable substitute for Viagra.

Sex is one of the biggest and perhaps the last remaining joys in the world today.

In many societies across the globe, more so African societies, the true mark of a man is what he does in the bedroom.

The advent of Viagra and other erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments revolutionized the world of sexual medicine. No longer did men with certain medical conditions or age-related ED have to resign themselves to unsatisfying sex lives.

However, ED drugs do not work for every man. Some men experience side effects, while the drug is unsuitable for others, such as men with certain types of chest pain and heart disease.

For men who cannot take Viagra, watermelon is a safe alternative 

Watermelon is a natural source of citrulline. Citrulline is an amino acid that may support better erections. Viagra basically works by increasing blood flow to the penis, allowing a man to more easily get an erection when he is aroused. Citrulline may do the same thing, although it works in a different way to Viagra.

Medical research suggests that the body may convert citrulline to another amino acid, called arginine. Arginine converts to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide opens the blood vessels wider, increasing blood flow to the penis and improving erections.

Because watermelon is mostly water, the highest concentrations of citrulline come from concentrated watermelon juice.

Men who want to try watermelon as a natural Viagra may find better results with watermelon juice.

Preliminary research is promising, and there are few or no risks associated with consuming watermelon. This means that most men can safely try watermelon juice or citrulline supplements as an alternative to Viagra.

A 2011 study followed 24 men with mild ED. The men took a placebo for 1 month. For another month, they took a citrulline supplement. Just two of the men taking a placebo saw their erections return to normal hardness levels. But half of the men who took citrulline experienced improvements that brought their erections to normal hardness levels.

Men who took citrulline also had more sex, averaging 1.37 sessions of intercourse per month before treatment, and 2.3 per month after treatment. None of the men experienced side effects.
