Is it the watermelon?


Is it the watermelon?

I’ve had some super erections lately, and I suspect my new found love for watermelons could be the reason. I don’t eat it every day, just a piece now and then. I’ve also had more days rest than I use to - so that could be part of the reason for it, too.
I just wanted to share this tonight.

I love melons :D

The white part, the rind, is super powerful for me.

I’ll get major erections from eating that.

Watermelon: A Natural Viagra?
Researcher Says Popular Summer Fruit May Have Viagra-Like Effect on Blood Vessels

July 1, 2008 — Men hoping for some fireworks in their love life this Fourth of July may want to skip the burgers and beer at the barbecue and eat plenty of watermelon.

Watermelon may be a natural Viagra, says a researcher. That’s because the popular summer fruit is richer than experts believed in an amino acid called citrulline, which relaxes and dilates blood vessels much like Viagra and other drugs meant to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).

“We have known that watermelon has citrulline,” says Bhimu Patil, PHD, director of the Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center at Texas A&M University, College Station. Until recently, he tells WebMD, scientists thought most of the citrulline was in the watermelon rind. “Watermelon has more citrulline in the edible part than previously believed,” he says.

How could watermelon be a natural Viagra? The amino acid citrulline is converted into the amino acid arginine, Patil says. “This is a precursor for nitric oxide, and the nitric oxide will help in blood vessel dilation.”

So, the burning question: How much watermelon does it take?

“That is a good question,” Patil says. Unfortunately, “I don’t have an answer for that.”

He does know that a typical 4-ounce serving of watermelon (about 10 watermelon balls) has about 150 milligrams of citrulline. But he can’t say how much citrulline is needed to have Viagra-like effects.

He’s hopeful that someone will pick up on his research and study the fruit’s effect on penile erections.

Watermelon’s Viagra-Like Effects
On hearing about the Texas finding, Irwin Goldstein, MD, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, was underwhelmed. Suggesting a man feast on watermelon to boost performance, he says, “would be the equivalent of someone dropping a beer bottle in Minneapolis, where the Mississippi River starts, and hoping to see it make an impact on someone in New Orleans.”

“To say that watermelon is Viagra-like is sort of fun,” says Goldstein. “But to even vaguely hope that eating watermelon will alleviate ED is misleading.”

“The vast majority of Americans produce enough arginine,” adds Goldstein, medical director of Alvarado Hospital Medical Center, San Diego, and clinical professor of surgery, University of California San Diego School of Medicine. “Men with ED are not deficient in arginine.”

Though arginine is required to make nitric oxide, and nitric oxide is required to dilate blood vessels and have an erection, “that doesn’t mean eating something that is rich in citrulline will make enough arginine that it will lead to better penile erections,” Goldstein says.

Goldstein has served as a consultant for many companies that make ED drugs.

Calling watermelon a natural Viagra is “clearly premature,” says Roger Clemens, DrPH, adjunct professor of pharmacology and pharmaceutical sciences, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, and a spokesman for the Institute of Food Technologists.

Clemens studied the amino acid arginine himself, researching a supplement to improve vascular flow for patients with hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis. He has since abandoned that line of research, he says.

It can require a lot of watermelon to boost blood levels of arginine, he adds. In a study published in 2007 in Nutrition, he says, volunteers who drank three 8-ounce glasses of watermelon juice daily for three weeks boosted their arginine levels by 11%.

Watermelon is low in calories and provides potassium and the phytonutrients lycopene and beta-carotene, in addition to the citrulline.

Clemens’ advice on watermelon and the Fourth of July? “Put salt on it and enjoy.”

Just don’t expect fireworks anywhere but in the sky.

The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.


I cannot tell you how much it takes.

I eat about an eighth of a watermelon every time I have a lady coming over

plus eat it almost the same amount daily.

I have been doing this of years always seem to add to enjoyment.

Cannot say it really helps.

But has never hurt or let me down.

Enjoy plus it’s good for you.

Well I just got rich I planted watermelon at the beginning of spring. Need to check out the futures price on melons. I will plant a couple acres next spring. I hope the prices stays up.

Hopefully it’s not the watermelon itself that is turning you on.

Fruit can be beautiful, but not that beautiful.

Come to think of it, watermelons are in the cucumber family and technically a vegetable. I wonder if cucumbers would have the same effect.

The great elm.

And if you don’t have a special lady friend to share these side effects of this “natural viagra,” you can always cut a nice hole in the watermelon. ;)

PE for length: so her heart stops when she sees it. PE for girth: to get her heart started again!

One need only leave the surface of the planet to realize we are all one people.

Isn’t the cucumber a fruit?

It’s sounds like it would be fun trying even if it didn’t work:)

Watermelon contains Citrulline which transforms into Arginine.. Funny thing is when I ate Arginine capsules, that did nothing for me. But just a slice of watermelon gets the wood going like never before..

Hmm. Interesting fruit this is.. :)

Very soon we’ll have a registered trade mark for melons!

This is very interesting I think I will try to eat the rind next time I eat watermelon. I just recently read a good article about how good fruit actually is for us, so much so it should probably constitute the bulk of our diet. Here is the article;


I frequent this web site often and find his perspectives on fitness interesting and new.
