From watermelon sugar high to watermelon sugar hard! Watermelon isn't just a delicious summer delicacy or a Harry Styles lyric; it also has numerous health benefits. Popstar is back with the tip (and not just the tip) on how your favorite summer fruit can help with your erection and make you harder than the rind! After all, what is a summer barbeque without watermelons and weiners?
One of the health benefits of Watermelon is that it can help with erectile dysfunction! Watermelon is bursting with flavor and an amino acid called citrulline. Most of the citrulline is found in the white part closest to the rind, so you want to make sure you get every last juicy bite! When you eat this summery treat, your body converts the citrulline into arginine. Sound familiar?
Arginine is responsible for producing nitric oxide, which sounds like a Crash Bandicoot villain but is a molecule that relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow. Nitric oxide helps to dilate blood vessels, increasing blood flow. Since your penis needs sufficient blood flow to achieve and maintain an erection, nitric oxide could be the key to solving your ED.
Studies show that men who consume watermelon juice experience an improvement in erectile dysfunction. In a study published in the journal Urology in 2011, men with mild ED who were given a daily dose of L-citrulline for four weeks saw improvements in their erection hardness. The study authors concluded that daily L-citrulline supplementation (by way of its conversion to L-arginine) might be a reasonable alternative to medications like Viagra and Cialis for men with mild-to-moderate ED.
To get the erectile benefits of watermelon, you can eat fresh watermelon, drink watermelon juice, or take watermelon extract supplements. However, consuming excessive amounts of watermelon can lead to digestive issues like stomach cramps, bloating, and diarrhea.
Taking Popstar may be a better option if you have a sensitive stomach. Popstar gives your weiner exactly what it needs, L-arginine, without the watermelon mess.. Now you can skip the L-citrulline altogether and improve your erections with your daily dose of L-arginine found in Popstar.
Watermelon also contains other essential nutrients for overall health, including vitamins A, B6, and C, potassium, and lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant known for its protective effects against prostate cancer and is in high concentrations in watermelon.
With summer right around the corner, we dream of blue skies, beach days, and backyard barbeques. So when planning your barbeques, make sure that plenty of watermelon is on the menu so you can feel sexy all summer long.
