Shhh! Here’s a sensitive but daunting statistic: An estimated 30 million Americans suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED)(1), making it one of the most common issues related to men’s (sex) 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 their range of side effects, including headaches, diarrhea and joint pain, to name a few.(2)
Here’s the good news. There is a powerful substance available that works better than the pills and without the harmful side effects. In fact, it delivers a slew of additional benefits, including improved cardiovascular health, kidney function and weight loss.
Hopefully, this has piqued your interest. You may be wondering where you can get hold of such a coveted concoction. Well, no need to meet a shady dealer in a dark alley. It can be found at your friendly neighborhood produce department. It’s the modest—but never to be underestimated—watermelon. Yes, you read correctly—watermelon. Watermelon contains a substance called citrulline, which ultimately leads to supercharged vascular dilation and blood flow.(3)(4)
Here’s some advice from a certified detoxification specialist with three simple steps for a wild evening of passion:
Step 1: Do a 48 hour just-watermelon fast
Step 2: Lose weight and pee like a rock star (you will)
Step 3: Grab your partner and have an unforgettable romantic evening
