Shocking News: Watermelon is like a Natural Viagra!

Shocking News: Watermelon is like a Natural Viagra!

Watermelon has an amino acid that has a Viagra-like effect on your blood vessels, according to an article on Web MD.

How could watermelon be a natural Viagra, you ask?

Watermelon is very rich in an amino acid called L-citrulline. This amino acid relaxes and dilates your blood vessels much like Viagra does.

A CBS News article reads: "Like Viagra, L-citrulline increases blood flow to the sexual organs but without any negative side effects."

So, men, if you are having some trouble raising your flag, maybe you should start eating watermelon!

Many Haitians eat avocados because they like it but do you what will happen to your body if you eat avocado every day? Watch this video and find out. Trust me you will want to load up on that "ZABOKA" starting today after you discover all the health benefits of avocado.

The avocado is a unique fruit with multiple nutritional and health benefits. How would your body respond if you ate just one avocado a day?

In fact, it would transform your life as you'd get amazing results:

  1. your breath will be fresh at all times,
  2. your kidneys and liver will work more efficiently,
  3. your blood pressure will become lower, just to name a few.

There's a miraculous mineral to be found in avocados: potassium. It helps your system keep a healthy fluid balance through chemical channels for cells and organs.

Avocados are also a great source of vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is known for its involvement in the creation of collagen and elastin, which help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness.

Vitamin E takes it to a whole new level, reducing the damage of excessive sun exposure and counteracting aging.
