But, honestly, I don’t feel that much boost, probably I’m already high on libido and eating it regularly. To support the claim on watermelon as a good and natural alternative to boost sex drive, A&M University in Texas with Dr. Bhimu Patil as main author of the study found an active ingredient within watermelon known as citrulline-arginine, and its main role is to help relax the blood vessels by increasing the production of Nitric Oxide(NO), which is an effect similar to what Viagra does.

    For a healthy man, this effect may not be noticeable, just as what I’ve experienced. Me and my wife, in fact, the entire family consumed various types of watermelon because it’s delicious and refreshing especially on a hot summer day. However, for men with erectile dysfunction and not consuming it, watermelon can be a good one to try. However, take note eating once and no more is a sure way of not experiencing or enjoying its benefits. This is not a medication, but instead eat it regularly or whenever there is an abundance of it.

    Therefore, there is a good reason to maintain fresh breath. If you notice bad breath, immediately take action on it by maintaining proper dental hygiene.

    You’re Sitting Too Much Watching TV

    When a person watch TV, majority are sitting comfortably on a couch plus a reachable bowl or bag of snacks, which unfortunately…considered junk foods. However, we’ve already covered junk foods, and eating too much of those won’t do any good for health, and for sexual health particularly for the swimmers. In 2013, Harvard University conducted a research on exercise habits and TV viewing. What the researchers found is that, 20 hours weekly of watching TV reduces sperm count by half. On the other hand, a moderate to a vigorous exercise of 15 hours weekly can boost sperm count.
