The positive effects of L-Arginine go beyond simple sexual enhancement.
L-Arginine is involved in the body’s protein formation and in larger amounts L-Arginine stimulates the release of growth hormones, enhances sperm productions, improves muscle building & recovery times and is a well-documented prosexual nutrient for enhancing performance and enjoyment of both men and women.
In a recent Italian study, 24 middle-aged men who suffered from “mild” erection problems took a citrulline supplement for a month. After the month trial, 50% of the men said their difficulties cleared up and they had sex more often.
There are a number of foods which contain large amounts of citrulline such as almonds, chickpeas, and cucumbers, dark chocolate (Cacao), salmon and walnuts, however none come as close to providing the amount of citrulline contained in fresh watermelon.
Some researchers have gone as far to say that watermelon has a Viagra-like effect when it comes to preventing erectile dysfunction (ED).
