Watermelon juice is not your everyday juice! It is packed full of goodness, it nourishes, it cleanses the body and it is deeply satisfying on a hot summers day! But, what has it to do with Viagra?…

Now to the watermelon! We usually think of watermelon as a summer fruit that tastes great, but without having any significant nutritional value. But those days are over! Watermelon is full of goodness! Scientists and researchers have found that watermelon is incredibly healthy. It is in fact a health booster, loaded with vitamin A, B6, C and full of important antioxidants!

Watermelon is alkalizing, it helps to reduce inflammation in the body.

But hold on, there’s more… something very surprising – according to Science Daily, research has shown that watermelon may have a Viagra effect! Scientists say that a watermelon has ingredients that delivers viagra-like effects to the body’s blood vessels and may even increase libido!

  1. Dear Anne

    Thank you for your wonderful recipes and eternal inspiration! -and for mention me in your post 🙂 I love watermelon and in summer this is one of our farvoritter: watermelon salad with feta cheese and fresh mint. It tastes great together, it is healthy and easy to make, you just cut watermelon into bite-sized chunks, feta cheese into small pieces and chop the fresh mint – it’s all mixed and ready to serve.

    -keep in touch! Camilla
