Get fruity! 5 fruits that will change your life

We all do our best to follow a healthy lifestyle, right?

We work out, we eat well, we drink plenty of water… You name it. But did you know that some foods – and fruit in particular – can boost your sex life more than others?

Yep, it’s time to get fruity my friend! Here are 5 fruits to supercharge your sex life.

1. Watermelon

It comes as no surprise that watermelon has earned the term, the ‘natural viagra’ due to its powerful amino acid and antioxidant content – both of which help to improve blood flow. But is it all it’s cracked up to be?

Put simply, it all comes down to a watermelon being rich in the amino acid, citrulline. Our bodies convert citrulline to arginine, which reacts with other chemicals in the body to create nitric oxide.

Now, you might wonder why that’s such a big deal? Well, nitric oxide is what keeps our blood vessels healthy, making it easier to get hard – and stay hard. But don’t just take my word for it… Studies have shown that an L-citrulline supplement can have a positive impact on erectile dysfunction (ED), revealing that watermelon’s amino acid content could be stronger than we think.

2. Grapefruit

Now, this pretty pink fruit may seem harmless, but it could actually be having a negative effect on your erections. Yep, this is a fruit to avoid that’ll change your sex life for good.

If you’re currently taking any medications that contain sildenafil – such as Viagra – grapefruit could actually be playing havoc with its success. This is because grapefruit contains a bunch of chemicals that interact with the way medication is absorbed.

Big fan of grapefruit and those little blue pills? If your meds aren’t working as they should, it could be down to this mighty fruit.

3. Lemon

Unlike grapefruit, there is little to comment on (in a good way!) regarding the way that lemon interacts with medications. However, it could be more beneficial than you first think, as lemons are rich in vitamin C and plant compounds that can help to lower high blood pressure.

But are the rumors true?

Well, studies have shown that men have reported improvements in ED after drinking a glass of pomegranate juice. Rich in antioxidants, pomegranate is both great for your heart and your erections.
