Eat more watermelon for better sex, a healthier heart and pain-free muscles
Watermelon has been described as “nature’s Viagra” thanks to its ability to increase libido and enhance blood flow to you-knowwhere. That’s down to its high concentration of citrulline, an amino acid that relaxes blood vessels.
When you eat watermelon some of the citrulline is converted into another amino acid, arginine, which both improves heart health and helps maintain a stronger immune system, meaning you’ll spend less time on the sidelines.
Drinking watermelon juice can decrease your risk of developing atherosclerosis –a build-up of fat in your arteries that’s a contributor to heart disease – according to an animal study by the University of Kentucky.
Necking some of the fruit’s juice after a hard weights session could help reduce the severity of post-workout muscular aches and pains, according to the American Chemical Society. That means you’ll be back under the bar sooner.
