Is watermelon more effective than viagra, in bed?

Health, wellness and food

Watermelon compared to Viagra.

Is watermelon more effective than viagra, in bed?

It's watermelon season, let's make the most of it, because it contains health benefits. In addition to its beautiful color and its refreshing taste, watermelon provides water and precious contribution especially when it is hot. Native to Africa precisely from the Nile Valley, it is the fruit of an annual plant with creeping stems, watermelon helps cover nutrient intake because we are deficient (nutrients). It is Amadou Tidiane Guiro, professor in Nutrition and Food at the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar (Ucad) who, in this interview, returns to the nutritional contributions of watermelon.

What are the components of watermelon?

Watermelon, containing essentially 92% of water, is an essential nutrient. So watermelon will continue to quench our thirst, especially on hot days. It tastes slightly sweet but it's not a very high energy food, so it's a watermelon benefit. It also contains very important organic acids and some can promote the digestion and dilation of certain minerals found in the diet when watermelon is eaten after meals.

What are its virtues or nutritional benefits?

Watermelon is a source of vitamins (C) and group B vitamins, although not in sufficient quantities. In diets such as that of the Senegalese, which are dominated by rice or cereals which no longer contain vitamin B, the consumption of watermelons can be a source of vitamin B. There are also provitamins A (carotenes), minerals, vitamin A, E, iron, zinc, but also fibers which prevent against cardiovascular diseases. It is a refreshing and very interesting fruit that has nutritional values. Its consumption is highly recommended.

Studies show that watermelon provides water and benefits the body especially in hot weather. In what?

We are essentially made up of water. When it is hot, we can lose water through sweat, through breathing and our daily water intake should be 1.5 liters per day. Therefore, consuming watermelon also helps to rehydrate us.

Researchers have shown that it has the same effect as Viagra. What would justify this?

It was a bombshell study. However, watermelon contains a substance called citrulline, which once in the body will stimulate the blood vessels to dilate. Viagra would also act according to the same mechanism. This does not mean that watermelon will produce the same effect as viagra. This is because citrulline dilates blood vessels, Viagra dilates blood vessels, and indeed there are some that have made an amalgam of it. This blood vessel dilation effect is positive and does not cause any secondary problems. As for saying that watermelon has the same effect as Viagra, I cannot say that they have the same effect in humans.

What is the best use for watermelon?

It's like all fruits, you have to eat them. The recommendation I would like to make is to eat fruits and vegetables because illnesses are more and more frequent. However, we consume few fruits and vegetables and sometimes that is also expensive. The WHO (World Health Organization) recommendations in addition to physical activity are to eat about five fruits and vegetables per day. People should be encouraged to consume fruits such as watermelon because it helps prevent certain diseases. We are in a country where there are a lot of nutrient deficiencies, watermelon can help cover nutritional intake.
