Watermelon has many nutritional benefits, including being a good source of lycopene, beta carotene, and citrulline.
According to a recent study done by Bhimanagouda S. Patil, PhD of Texas A&M University, the citrulline in watermelon may have Viagra-like effects on the body. Dr. Patil has found that this particular nutrient relaxes blood vessels, which is similar to what Viagra does.
