Rereading this thread, something caught my attention. Pomegranate juice? What did that do for you? And do you know if there’s some sort of chemical in it that gave the effect? Very curious about aphrodisiac foods.
Also very interesting if so—subtext for the abduction of Persephone—she stayed because of the sex :chuckle:
I can’t remember where I originally saw the paper, but here’s a link that gives the gist of it: http://www.mercola.com/2005/apr/6/pomegranate_juice.htm
I tried it for the nitric oxide. It doesn’t feel like viagra though. I it’s a ‘clean’ and focussed feeling - probably like what arginine would be like if I could ever remember to take it.
One side effect I noticed is that it’s fantastic for the morning after hangover. Probably about on a par with ‘superfood’, but without the feeling of drinking grass cuttings when you’re in that certain delicate state. I did 1/2pint glass every morning, and effects were within a couple of hours.
Anyway, it’s nothing groundbreaking, but significant enough to notice the difference. It’s worth trying a carton if you’re curious since it’s a small investment, and the long term benefits seem to be in alignment with the n-3 supplementation too (apart from it meaning mixing fat and carbs, in case that bothers you).
