This Valentine’s Day juice recipe is everything you need to help “get it up” in bed this Valentine’s Day weekend.
Okay, I’m joking (but not really). Valentine’s day, the day of “love” should of course, be applied to every day, not just one day. Express your love freely everyday, and watch your life transform (for real!).
Watermelon contains a compound called citrulline that researchers say may have a viagra-like effect on blood vessels. Citrulline, an amino acid in watermelon, has the ability to relax and dilate blood vessels, which isn’t only good news for men dealing with sexual disorders, but for those experiencing heart problems as well.
Citrulline is converted to an amino acid called arginine, which is a precursor for nitric oxide. Nitric oxide then helps in blood vessel dilation.
Not to mention, watermelon is also very high in lycopene, which studies have shown to be protective against heart disease and a host of different cancers.
