Watermelon after sex

Women eating watermelonTrue, cool and juicy slabs of watermelon are a staple at G-rated family picnics, but this super-sweet fruit is also a sex-booster. First, bright-red watermelon contains an amino acid called l-citrulline, which helps relax and dilate blood vessels, naturally increasing blood flow to sexual organs and contributing to a hotter climax.  Athletes have long known about watermelon’s power and is getting a boost from scientific support in a new study, which found that juice from the summer favorite fruit can relieve post-exercise muscle soreness.

The report in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistryattributes watermelon’s effects to the amino acid L-citrulline.  Researchers tested natural watermelon juice, watermelon juice enriched in L-citrulline and a control drink containing no L-citrulline on volunteers an hour before exercise. Both the natural juice and the enriched juice relieved muscle soreness in the volunteers. L-citrulline in the natural juice (unpasteurized), however, seemed to be more bioavailable – in a form the body could better use, the study found.
