Haven't tried Viagra? Try watermelon!

A cool slice of watermelon long time has been a main dish of the Independence Day holiday in the U.S.. But according to recent studies, this juicy fruit may be more appropriate for Valentine's Day. The reason for this - the scientists found in watermelon  ingredients which affect the circulatory system of a person like Viagra and increase libido.

"The more we study watermelons, the more we realize how rich this fruit in natural and useful substances for the human body," - said Dr. Patil Bhima, director of the Texas Center for the Study of fruits and vegetables.

"We have always known that watermelon is useful, but its list of major mineral properties is getting longer with each new study. Beneficial ingredients in watermelon and other fruits and vegetables are known as phytonutrients - natural ingredients, that have bioactive function, or can initiate a natural reaction in the human body , "- said Patil.

"In watermelons, these nutrients include lycopene, beta-carotene, and our main hope - citrulline, whose beneficial functions are now being studied. Among these features - the ability to relax blood vessels like Viagra.

Scientists know that the consumption of watermelon under the action of certain enzymes, citrulline is converted to arginine. Arginine - an amino acid that can do wonders for the heart and circulatory system and supporting our immune system, "- said Patil
"Transformed from citrulline arginine promotes the good work of the heart, immune system and may well be useful in patients suffering from obesity and type 2 diabetes," - said Patil. - "Arginine increases nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, like Viagra to help with erectile dysfunction and even preventing it."

Despite the fact that there are many psychological and physiological problems that cause impotence, extra nitric oxide could help those with inadequate blood flow, as well as angina, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases.

Watermelon may not have the same directional effect as Viagra, "- said Patil, -" but it perfectly relaxes blood vessels without any side effects. "

The benefits of watermelon does not end there - he continued. - Arginine also improves the urea cycle, bringing the ammonia and other toxic substances from the body. "

Citrulline, the precursor to arginine, is found in watermelon rind in higher concentrations than in the flesh. Because the crust is not usually eaten, two scientists, colleagues, Patil, Dr. Steve King, and Ben Hay Gin, working on breeding a new species of watermelon with higher concentrations of citrulline in the flesh.

In addition to the Texas studies watermelon phytonutrients are currently being studied in the Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture g.Leyn, state Ohlahoma.

"In addition, these studies have also shown that deep red varieties of watermelon tomatoes surpass the level of lycopene," - said Patil. - "Almost 92 percent of watermelon - water, but the remaining 8 percent contain lycopene - an antioxidant that protects heart health, prostate and skin."

"Historically it was believed that lycopene, also found in red grapefruit, is found only in tomatoes," - he said. - "But now we know that it is present in watermelon red at higher concentrations."
"However, lycopene is fat-soluble substance, which means that for better absorption by the body requires certain fats in the blood," - said Patil.

"Previous tests have shown that lycopene is better absorbed from tomatoes when they are mixed in a salad with oily vegetables like avocado or spinach," - said Patil. "This also applies to lycopene, obtained from watermelon, but I understand that the combination of watermelon with spinach or avocado is hardly appropriate."

"It is not carried out any studies to determine the time of consumption of oily vegetables to improve lycopene absorption," - he continued.

In conclusion, I can advise - buying a watermelon, remember that they are kept much better in uncut form at room temperature. The level of lycopene is kept constant, when a watermelon is on the kitchen floor. However, immediately after cutting keep it in the refrigerator. "

We look forward to summer for buying watermelons!

From the list of currently available drugs to aid in the fight against overweight and obesity, you can choose any.

For 10 years, doctors successfully used the drug Xenical peripheral actions. Why does the drug to block the absorption of fat food has been recognized in society and the medical world? Fat food - the main problem is getting fat people. Fatty food is tasty, easily chewed, it is possible to eat a lot, because it gives a very slow saturation. If a man accustomed to such a diet, it is difficult to give up through the efforts of the will. Fats from food, are broken down in the stomach and intestine by enzymes - lipases for further absorption and distribution in the body. Xenical has a unique mechanism of action: it blocks about 30% of gastrointestinal lipases. Thus, it prevents splitting and the absorption of dietary fat, helps a person to spend their fat reserves, leading to a gradual sustained weight loss. Xenical only works in the intestines is not absorbed into the bloodstream and affect other organs and systems.

Prostate Disease

A healthy liver - is the prostate gland without prostatitis and BPH
We would like to touch on a benign tumor of the prostate disease, called an adenoma. As you know, any neoplastic process (tumor development) is caused by an imbalance between the processes of reproduction and cell death in a particular organ. In the prostate, this balance is regulated by testosterone.

Why prostate cells "are no longer listen to" "orders" of testosterone? 
The fact that they are constantly damaged by a mass of toxins coming from poorly filtered blood. These lesions, in particular, are expressed in the loss of "antenna" (receptors) that can take the signals given testosterone. Not the last role play and injuries such as loss of cells of the prostate, "antennas" (receptor), which should detect insulin. These damaged cells begin to multiply out of control and increase in size. Growing adenoma covers the urethra, causing a sensation of incomplete emptying of the bladder, nocturnal urination, decreased potency and libido. Many patients with BPH eventually marked the emergence of cancer - prostate cancer.
