watermelon juice natural erectile dysfunction treatmentWatermelon juice has been found to have a Viagra-like effect, which makes it act as a natural erectile dysfunction treatment. Watermelon is a popular summertime fruit as it is refreshing, but it can also offer satisfaction between the sheets.

Italian scientists found that watermelon juice can benefit men suffering from mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. The findings were published in the journal Urology.

The scientists found an amino acid in high concentration in watermelon juice that works to improve blood flow to the penis without any harsh side effects commonly seen in medications aimed to do the same thing.

The researchers observed the effects of the amino acid in supplement form in men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. Twenty-four men over the age of 57 who had low scores on the Erection Hardness Score (EHS) were recruited for the study. Some of the men received a placebo, while the others received a supplement with the essential amino acid.

During the study period, the men’s EHS scores were reevaluated, along with number of sexual encounters per months, treatment satisfaction, and any adverse effects experienced. The amino acid in the study is known for increasing blood flow by dilating blood vessels in similar fashion as Viagra.

There were significant increases in the EHS scale for the men taking the amino acid supplement. Furthermore, intercourse number per month increased as well.

The researchers concluded, “Although less effective than phosphodiesterase type-5 enzyme inhibitors, at least in the short term, L-citrulline supplementation has been proved to be safe and psychologically well accepted by patients.” Many men do not opt for Viagra due to cost and side effects, so finding a natural alternative brings a large relief for those men living with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.

Previous research also found that ingredients in watermelon work to boost libido, too, so that offers more reason to consume watermelon on the regular.

Other natural treatment options for erectile dysfunction

As mentioned, opting for Viagra or any other medication to combat erectile dysfunction can be quite costly. Plus, it may bring a slew of side effects, too.
