Read up boys: Watermelon is King

Very interesting study out of Texas A&M on Watermelon and how it has a "Viagra" like affect on the body. I don't know if this is Paleo/Zone, but it's interesting. (w/f/s)

Buy stock in watermelon crops

Re: Read up boys: Watermelon is King

Pretty neat. I can understand the effect as probably. Most of those Men's sexual health support stuff at the Vitamin store generally has lots of Arginine, though most of the NOS supplements have some weird version of arginine.

Just gotta eat the rind apparently. Funny thing is my grandpa used to always eat to the rind in all melons, but I'm thinking it was because in his day ( growing up in the depression ) it wouldn't be cool to not eat everything possible.
