A lot of people consume watermelon because of how good it tastes. However, there is more to this fruit than just its taste. It has very low calorie content, and it is also filled with vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Most Africans think there is only one type of this particular fruit, but what they do not know is that there are about five common types of watermelon. These include seeded, seedless, mini, yellow, and orange.
The fruit is also less pricey in a lot of African countries. However, this may soon change in Nigeria because of a pronouncement made by a UK-based Nigerian doctor. According to the doctor with the Twitter handle, firstdoctorr, watermelon contains some elements that can help boost the sexual drive of men, making it a wonderful substitute for artificial aphrodisiacs.
He tweeted: "Men, eat watermelon because it is made up of the amino acid known as citrulline, which can relax your blood vessels and increase blood flow to your pénis, allowing for a better erection when aroused." Almost a natural Viagra. "
One of the few things men like to spend their money on without any complaints is aphrodisiacs.
This is mainly due to their obsession with becoming beasts in the bedroom. It is as if they live for such moments only. So the possibility of most Nigerian men adding watermelons to their meals now will come as no surprise at all, especially after the doctor's disclosure.
The doctor also tweeted that "the amino acid, I citrulline, is also naturally produced by the body and gets converted to l-arginine in the kidney." This boosts testosterone levels and improves peripheral blood flow and nitric oxide levels, all of which can help relieve the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. "
His tweets on the sexual health benefits of watermelon caught the attention of a lot of men on the social media app. Some of them took the opportunity to express their opinions on what they had just discovered:
A Twitter user with the handle daddyhope tweeted that the advice from firstdoctr will cause a shortage of watermelons because supermarkets in Nigeria that sell the fruit will be emptied and watermelon farmers will also become rich overnight.
Hilariously, another Twitter user, benbalor22, also tweeted that the Nigerian doctor will just make the cost of the fruit go up again. So, if anyone goes to the market and notices a significant increase in the price of watermelons, they should know that it is all the fault of the first doctor.
