All the seeds, walnuts and watermelon contain an amino acid called Arginine. It’s this enzyme that helps maintain a healthy immune & hormone function. Arginine gives a helping hand in enlarging the blood vessels, enhancing blood flow to the penis. Upping your Arginine levels can boost erectile response and turns into Nitric Oxide in the body.
Chives contain high vitamin C which will protect the Nitric Oxide in the body. Viagra essentially induces erections using Nitric Oxide.
Beetroot contains boron, an aphrodisiac and booster of sexual stamina.
Feta increases testosterone levels.
Spinach ecdysterone also increases testosterone.
