Watermelon Juice: A Smart Sipper for Sexual Performance

Read Transcript

One of summer's favorite fruits have some surprising benefits for men. Hi, I'm Dr. Oz. Watermelon is loaded with a compound that increases blood flow, much of the same way prescription performance drugs do for erectile dysfunction. The compound is Citrulline which your body converts to L-arginine, some blood vessel relaxer that enhances circulation to all your vital parts. In a recent study, 24 middle aged guys with mild erection problems took this Citrulline supplement for a month, half said their difficulties cleared up, and they had sex more often. Now there are many sources for Citrulline, almonds, cantaloupe, chick peas, cocoa, even dark chocolate, but none come close to delivering the amount of Citrulline down in watermelon. American experts have found that knocking back a couple of glasses of watermelon juice a day raises blood levels of L-arginine significantly. You can buy 100% watermelon juice at your local healthy store. Don't overlook other drug free helpers.

Exercise, eating right and getting plenty of sleep also help your performance in the bedroom. I'm Dr. Oz. Check out all of our smart tips for more ways to stand top of your health game.
