It’s juicy. It’s refreshing. And it works like Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction (ED)…without the side effects or ridiculous price tag.

This summer fruit contains a phytonutrient that relaxes your arteries and increases your blood flow all over. Less than optimal blood flow—ED—is embarrassing and can lower your confidence. It’s a condition no man wants to think about, let alone experience.

Yet only 25 percent of those who suffer from ED seek treatment.1 Older men are the least likely to get treated. Those who do seek help often get prescribed Viagra which can cost anywhere from $5 to $10 per pill.2

Not only does Viagra take up to four hours to work, it comes with pretty unromantic side effects… headache, stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea.3 Hardly symptoms you want to bring into the bedroom.

This summer staple is a safer alternative that can help you banish ED within four weeks…

Believe or not…it’s watermelon. Yep, America’s favorite picnic food is your key to a better performance in the bedroom. Watermelon contains citrulline, which helps arteries relax by raising your body’s levels of the amino acid, arginine.

Did you know that the color shirt you wear may be affecting your testosterone levels? Sounds strange, but it’s true. What color should you reach for? Red. A new study found that men who wear red have higher levels of testosterone. The color makes them more dominant and aggressive. Also, sportsmen view opponents who wear red as tougher competition.

That in turn gives your nitric oxide levels a boost. The elevated nitric oxide then helps increase your blood flow all over, including where you’d like it the most!

In a study published in the journal Urology, men with mild erectile dysfunction who took an extract of citrulline experienced better sexual performance within four weeks. Half of them enjoyed normal erectile function.4 The men reported having harder erections and being very satisfied.

Citrulline is perfectly safe to take as a daily supplement. It helps fix ED before it happens because it works on all your blood vessels. You don’t have to worry about when your results are going to kick in while hoping you don’t suffer the side effects.

“Watermelon may not be as organ-specific as Viagra,” said Dr. Bhimu Patil, director of Texas A&M’s Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center in College Station. “But it’s a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side-effects.”

The watermelon rind contains 60 percent more citrulline than the flesh.5 The rind is edible, although it doesn’t have the most appealing flavor. And even though the flesh contains citrulline, to get the sexual benefit you’d have to eat a lot of watermelon. Six cups to be exact. That’s a lot of water and sugar. So, your best bet is to take a citrulline supplement.

Don’t let embarrassment keep you down. Reignite the fire in the bedroom and take back your confidence.

By the way, there are many causes for erectile dysfunction and low testosterone is one. Testosterone levels decline about 1% a year after age 30. This is a symptom of what we call “Male Aging Syndrome.” Most men think problems like lack of energy or libido are a natural consequence of getting older… when it may actually be an easy-to-fix hormone imbalance.
