WATERMELON; Is loaded with a compound that increases blood flow, much the same way as viagra and other performance drugs. The compound is citrulline, which your body converts into l-arginine, a blood vessel relaxer that enhances circulation to all your vital parts. American experts have found that knocking back a couple of glasses of watermelon juice a day raises blood levels of l-arginine significantl
There are many other sources of citrulline -- almonds, cantaloupe, chickpeas, cocoa, cucumber, dark chocolate, peanuts, red meat, salmon, soy, and walnuts -- but none come close to delivering the amount in watermelon's pretty pink flesh and crunchy rind.
Watermelon is easier on your stomach than l-arginine supplements, experts say, because taking the pills can cause nausea and diarrhea. Citrulline has another advantage: It turns into l-arginine in your artery walls, so you get the benefits right where you need them. Some of the l-arginine in supplements may be lost in digestion.Watermelon alone may not be enough to keep naughty bits behaving perfectly, but keeping blood flowing freely to all the right places can't hurt. Other helpers include staying physically active, getting plenty of sleep, and spending time with friends.
Packing a powerful punch, seeds from watermelons contain proteins that can help regulate your blood pressure and help treat heart disease.
