Lets eat more Melon

Posted: July 8, 2008 in Random, sex

And we are back to regular programming……

My curiosity was piqued by a comment made by 31337 on July 4th post…… something about watermelon and their Viagra-like effects.

Apparently its true. Researchers say it has that effect – but dont necessarily expect it to keep the fireworks all night long!! Asiiii, and I here I thought we have found ourselves (general male population) a cheap and healthy way to get some more ‘work’ done!  

(source: Yahoo News/AP)

Lets get scientific.

Watermelon contains an ingredient called Citrulline which can trigger production of a compund that helps relax the body’s blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes viagra.

Citrulline reacts with the body enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed into arginine (an amino acid) that benefits the heart, the circulatory and the immune system

Citrulline, about 60%, can be found in watermelon rind than in the flesh. Its found in all colours of the fruit.

How much would one need? 6 cups (huh?) of watermelon. (I thought watermelon comes in slices, which cups are these??). Anyway to put it simply, you would need to eat a lot of watermelon!!!

Intel, can you do us the honours and report back ASAP?

3N, care to do research on the counter effect of watermelon on women? Treat this as urgent!

  4. CB says:

    eh, you did say watermelon rind, did you not? so what you need to be doing is eating the peels…in cups or otherwise…

  5. Gish says:

    My aunties(yes aunties wisdom) claim that melons help women with lubrication issues.

    I’ve never liked watermelon…but that can change. Mama mboga down the road has some lovely melons.

    She has lovely melon heh? thats you always forget something so u can go back to admire them….? LOOOOL

    @Gish: I heard last week that cabbage has a similar effect on women, ie regarding lubrication issues, and one should only have one serving per month!

    I’ve heard the same……. i wonder if cabbage has any effect on men….hmmmmm

  7. petesmama says:

    Seriously, without going into details, we need to eat more melon.

  8. Carol says:

    Suddenly everyone begins to like watermelon.
    As for me, I think with that effect on men, its just as much for women.We end up benefiting too no?No more blue pill men,Mama Mboga has ot all!

    Viagra is blue? Ok now i know…LOL

  9. Kirima says:

  20. archer says:

    Jimmy, not Mama Mboga’s melons, yaani the ones she sells, and you can carry them home in a paperbag, cut them up and eat. Yaani the ones grown on a farm!

    Of cabbage & female lubricant issues, what does it do to guys? Coz I eat cabbage daily.
