Watermelons V's Viagra

Jul 14, 2008
There has been research released recently which suggests that watermelons can be considered the new Viagra and may act as a natural cure for impotence. According to the findings, watermelons contain a natural cure ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body's blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra.

Found in the flesh and rind of watermelons, citrulline reacts with the body's enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed into arginine, an amino acid that has a host of benefits for circulation. The nitric oxide can also help with angina, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems, according to the study, which was paid for by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Researchers say that the watermelon is amazing and though not as organ specific as Viagra "it's a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side effects." However, the same researchers claim you would need to eat at least six cups of watermelon in order to get enough citrulline into your body's system. Can Watermelon really be considered side-effect free when watermelon is a diuretic and six cups is guaranteed to have you running to the bathroom all night long?

While watermelon is a health food, it is loaded with sugar and six cups in one serving may be a little too much. Let's not also forget that Viagra can be swallowed a little faster than six cups of watermelon.

So what are the potential side effects of Viagra? The side effects of Viagra are not particularly great or frequent but you should be aware of them. If they do occur, they are usually short lived. Some of the following side effects have been reported:
  • Congestion
  • Diarrhea
  • Facial Flushing
  • Headaches
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Bluish vision
