Watermelon, the New Viagra

Citrulline, a naturally occuring ingredient in watermelon rinds is good for your heart. But nobody cares about that, because the Citrulline in watermelon rinds works much the same as Viagra. There's an opportunity for a bunch of jokes is here, but I'm going to pass.

Texas A&M's researchers from the Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center discovered the effect and they say that watermelon may even increase your libido. The caveat is that watermelon rind is not considered the edible part of watermelons, and no study has been released on pickled watermelon rind, which is how the rind is usually served. Waste not, want not.

Now that this information has come out, watermelon growers are looking to, at the very least, double the amount of Citrulline and extend it into the flesh of the melon.

Citrulline relaxes blood vessels and I'll repeat that it's good for the heart. However, as far as penis enlargement or enhancement is concerned, relaxing the blood vessels allows more blood to flow through, which will make you harder. So Viagra is going to have some "stiff" competition from this natural source. I know, I couldn't resist one pun.

Citrulline (often mispelled as Citruline) is an amino acid. Its name is derived from citrullus, the Latin word for watermelon, and it was first isolated in 1930.

Citrulline is already known as a performance enhancement supplement in the form of citrulline malate. Antibodies for proteins containing Citrulline, found in humans, is becoming an indicator in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.

If you just like watermelons, and already have your supply of Viagra, I'd suggest you buy them today. After the reports in the news, if you wait until July 4th, you may be SOL.
