It is delicious, thirst quenching, nutrient dense, and now it is also labeled as a natural Viagra.  What is this miraculous food?  Abromosia?  Close, it is watermelon.  The delicious deep red fruit has a whole host of nutritious benefits, tastes 1,000 times better than broccoli, and now, according to Texas A & M’s Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center some compounds found in watermelons:

“[perform] the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it.”

Moreover, Dr. Bhimu Patil went on to state that, “it’s [watermelon] a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side-effects”

Sounds like it makes for a great pre-run, pre-workout snack.

Add to these new benefits the long recognized health benefits of watermelons (listed below) and it is probably worth designating the delicious fruit as a totally awesome super food.

Aside: If only there were as big a market for brain growth pills as for erection enhancers- both would be equally useless, but at least I wouldn’t be so pessimistic about humanity. (more…)
