Are you thinking about using Viagra to spice things up? How about cooling things down with a nice slice of watermelon? A scientist in Texas found an ingredient in watermelon with Viagra like effects. The compund found in watermelon is citrulline. Citrulline reacts with enzmes in the body and changes to an amino Acid called Arginine. Arginine benifits the heart, circulatory system an the immune system.

So when watermelons are consumed in large quantities the citrulline helps relax the blood vessels and may increase libido.

Don’t forget that you would probably make yourself sick trying to get the same results as the little blue pill. It just might not be worth it.
