watermelonIf you thought watermelon is just a fruit that refreshes parched throats, here’s something you should know: the juicy fruit has ingredients that deliver Viagra-like effects to the body’s blood vessels and may even increase libido.

The finding results from a study led by an Indian researcher in the US.

“The more we study watermelons, the more we realize just how amazing a fruit it is in providing natural enhancers to the human body,” said Dr. Bhimu Patil, director of Texas A and M’s Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center in College Station.

“We’ve always known that watermelon is good for you, but the list of its very important healthful benefits grows longer with each study,” he added.

Beneficial ingredients in watermelon and other fruits and vegetables are known as phyto-nutrients, naturally occurring compounds that are bioactive, or able to react with the human body to trigger healthy reactions, Patil said.

Watermelon Could Possibly Work As Well As Viagra (Excerpt from  inventorspot.com Read Full Article)

A cool, juicy watermelon is a refreshing fruit for many. However, watermelons may have the same effect as Viagra, a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction.

Watermelons have an ingredient called citrulline that could trigger the production of a compound that relaxes the body’s blood vessels, which is also what happens when a man takes Viagra.

Scientists in Texas say that citrulline reacts with the body’s enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is then changed to arginine, an amino acid that benefits the heart and circulatory systems.

“Arginine boosts nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it,” said Bhimu Patil, a researcher and director of Texas A&M’s Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center. “Watermelon may not be as organ-specific as Viagra, but it’s a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side effects.”
