Watermelon for Men

Watermelom enrich of Lycopene. Another study conducted All India Institute of Sciences New Delhi indicate that other functions of lycopene may increase sperm count and speed up the movement of sperm. Experiments on 30 infertile men aged 23-45 years who were given 20 mg of lycopene twice daily for 3 months, showed an increase in sperm count, improved sperm structure, and an increase in sperm mobility.

Other Lycopene substance is called sitrulin. Sitrulin works by increasing Nitric Oxide production, which play a role in erectile capacity in men so it can recover the impotence (impotence). Sitrulin easily absorbed by the body so that the maximum concentration in the blood is more easily achieved. This causes the penis muscle relaxation which gives the large room on the veins of the penis and fill with blood, forming an erection.

Unique shape of watermelon

We can find several unique shapes of watermelon in Japan. We often see that Japanese people well known as the creative people. Japan often has limitations in terms of storage, especially in densely populated areas. This becomes a dilemma for owners of shops in selling food. The store owner has a limitation in storing watermelon. This case has led to the idea for farmers to make a watermelon with a box shape.

Source

Heart shaped watermelon. Japan also never stopped creating new inventions. A beautiful watermelon with heart shape was performed by a husband and wife who work as a farmer in Kumamoto, Japan. They took 3 years to create this watermelon. Why they choose heart shape for their invention? the heart shape is an expression of love. This watermelon is expected to be a special gift for a loved one. They can harvest only 20 heart-shaped watermelons each year. Usually they are harvested before Mother's Day arrived, with the price about ¥ 15.750 or $ 160 for each of watermelon. It’s a fair price for the feeling of perfect love.

Love this hub. I just bought 2 "personal size" watermelons today. They were on sale - buy one get one free! Watermelon to me says summer! I think the tastiest watermelons still have their seeds. So crazy the shaped melons. Hopefully my boys have out-grown their contests of who can spit the seed the farthest. Funny! Of course you know, everytime I see a watermelon now -- I'm going to think of you!

My all time favorite fruit! What a great hub you put together here - for me to share. I've seen the square watermelon in Japan but didn't know about the heart-shaped and others - wow!

I've read so much about the healthy benefits of watermelon seeds also - but guess what - Americans seem not to know this and are accepting only seedless watermelons. Hard to find a good one with seeds.

Thanks a million! Rated up of course!

My friend, writer20. Thanks for coming and share your experience with the watermelon in your area. It also happened in my country in rainy season. This fruit almost no taste, maybe because it got a lot of water. So this can affect the taste of this fruit. Unfortunately for a big watermelon but it has no taste, but it still fresh...right. Take care! ~prasetio

Nice hub Prasetio, I used to eat only watermelon for dinner when I wanted to lose weight but I got tired of eating the same thing every night. Now that I know its nutritional value I might do it again. I like the yellow ones too, but does it have the same lycopene content than the red one? thanks..
