The Little Blue Pill vs. Nature
Shhh! Here’s a sensitive but daunting statistic. An estimated 30 million Americans suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED), (1) making it a leading issue related to men’s health. Though there are a variety of pharmaceuticals used as temporary solutions, a quick pop of the pill doesn’t come without its consequences. ED drugs have a range of side effects, such as headaches, diarrhea and joint pain, just to name a few. (2)
Now here’s the good news. There is a powerful substance that works better than those pills and without the harmful side effects. In fact, it delivers a slew of additional benefits, such as improved cardio vascular health, kidney function, and weight loss. OK, hopefully we have peaked your interest. You may be wondering where you can get a hold of such a coveted concoction. Well no need to meet a shady dealer in a dark alley. Nope, this can be found at your friendly neighborhood produce department. It’s the modest, but never to be underestimated, watermelon. Yes, you heard correctly, watermelon. Watermelon contains a substance called Citrulline, which ultimately leads to supercharged vascular dilation and blood flow (3) (4). Don’t believe it. Here’s some advice from a certified detoxification specialist on the 3 simple steps to a wild evening of passion.
Step 1: Do a 48 hour all day watermelon fast
Step 2: Pee like a rock star and lose some weight (you will)
Step 3: Grab your partner and have an unforgettable romantic evening.
