I’ve had a few people constantly ask me if eating watermelon can fix, reverse, and even “cure” erectile dysfunction? Is this true or just some myth?
Well… the truth is that, NO this is NOT a “cure” for erectile dysfunction. Far from it.
However, it is true that a substance in watermelon can improve your erections by increasing your blood flow, directly to the penis, with higher levels of Nitric Oxide.
And this is done because watermelon contains an amino acid called L-Citrulline1, which converts to and metabolizes to another amino acid called L-Arginine … Both of which can increase Nitric Oxide levels and thus, improves blood flow to your penis.
The Biggest Problem
However, to really make this work – you’d have to ingest at least 5 big watermelons daily (the pulp AND the juice) to get the required 10-15 GRAMS (10,000+ milligrams) of L-Citrulline.
Obviously, nobody is going to eat this much watermelon, let alone daily.
So, this is the first problem and why eating this fruit won’t work.
It’s much easier to just take L-Citrulline and Arginine in supplement powder form — which by the way, tastes like crap!!!
Taking it in pill form will be extremely expensive, that’s why I suggested powder.
Problem #2 that most people don’t know is that when you take L-Citrulline and/or Arginine, your Prolactin levels ALSO increases.
Prolactin would be considered a “female” hormone, even though both men and women produce it.
However, in women, Prolactin shoots up after birth, to produce milk to feed the baby.
In men and in women, prolactin causes
- breasts to grow (man-boobs!)
- it lowers testosterone
- it causes zits
- hair loss/balding ………
- AND it decreases sex drive and causes impotence!!!
Yes, you heard that correctly!!!
Now, this is nature’s way to prevent a new mother from having another baby and procreating. So she can focus only on the newborn baby.
But, this is a problem for men.
So taking L-Citrulline and Arginine can initially increase blood flow when used at the correct higher dosage (5 grams or more). But after the increase in Nitric Oxide and also some growth hormone, your body then does the OPPOSITE by increasing the female hormone, Prolactin.2-4
This is why I tell people to NOT take Citrulline and Arginine, unless you only do so like 2-3x weekly at the most — Or else you’re going to increase your Prolactin, which lowers your testosterone, causes accelerated balding, lowers your libido, and can cause impotence.
A Better, More Complete Solution That’s Clinically Proven To Work
If your goal is to avoid erectile problems, or reverse it or simply increase your libido, then you need a total solution. One that optimizes and balances out multiple hormones — increasing total and free testosterone, while decreasing female (estrogen, prolactin, progesterone) and stress (cortisol) hormones… and of course, increasing blood flow as well.
And for this, you can copy a proven formula that has worked for thousands of guys, around the world, since 1999.
