Since the creation of enhancement pills, many a good man has been completely religious to the idea that this is the only way to go. When Pfizer Viagra first hit the pharmacy shelves in 1998, it was received with mixed feelings some of doubt, some of excitement, and some of fear. Yet today it's become such a widely recognized name for the cure of ED, that it's hard to miss it. Most men are quick to rush to the doctor for a prescription for the little blue pill as soon as they notice that things are not going as they should be, and while there are times when a Viagra prescription may be required for genuine ED reasons, most of the times you can boost your masculine libido by natural means, that way you don't have to worry about any nasty side effects or other problems. Fruits produce one such avenue for boosting libido. Some of these fruits are:

Watermelon is top of the list of stimulating fruits. It has received world acclaim in recent times as the "fruit that works like viagra". Watermelon is rich in beta carotene, phytonutrients like lycopene (which research incidentally also links to a healthy prostate), and citrulline, which, when consumed, is converted to arginine. Arginine is an amino acid is well known for being beneficial for the heart and immune system, relaxing the blood vessels, and improving the blood circulation to the genitals. Watermelon is also said to be one of the greatest controllers of Diabetes Type 2. While this plump and heavy fruit may not be as organ specific as Viagra, it sure does its part to relax the blood vessels without any side-effects that are related to taking pills and prescribed drugs What we used to think of as a refreshing summer fruit now takes on a whole new meaning after further investigation.

Pomegranate is the next on the list. It is advised that men and women who want to improve their sexual performance through boosting libido should drink half a glass of pomegranate juice per day continuously for half a month. This finding was based on a research done by scientists at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland, where 58 volunteers, both men and women, were asked to each take a cup of pomegranate juice continuously for 2 weeks. Imagine their surprise, when the researchers found that testosterone hormone levels, female libido, blood pressure, and emotions were greatly improved after the two weeks. The results showed testosterone levels increase from 16% to 30% and improve sexual desire in both sexes as well as improve morale, enhance memory, and relieve stress. Any fear, sadness, inferiority, high blood pressure, or negative thoughts were reduced and the individuals became more positive mentally. Pomegranate juice is so high in antioxidants that it increases the blood flow all around the body, as well as to the genital area. Coincidently, pomegranate also lowers the risk of developing prostate cancer and heart disease.

Raisins. Just raisins on their own, won't do much for boosting your libido, but it countries like India, milk boiled with raisins was used as an ancient remedy for boosting low libido. Adding just a pinch of saffron to the concoction added an even better kick! Raisins also boost the arginine in your body and heighten the production of sexual hormones. Regularly eating raisins can help to boost libido in any one who suffers from low libido.

Bananas, aside from their obvious shapely relation to libido boosting abilities, are in fact filled with bromelain enzymes that boost libido. Bananas are also high in vitamin B and potassium that keep your energy levels up for a long time. They also contribute to the products of testosterone hormones that increase sex drive.

Strawberries and whipped cream has always been a winning combination for spicing up a bedroom romp for good reasons. Not only are strawberries delectably tasty, they also contain high levels of zinc. Zinc regulates the levels of testosterone that are needed for sperm production. In fact, should a man have sex 3 times in 24 hours, his entire body's zinc supply will be depleted this is where strawberries come into the picture. Strawberries are said by experts to "seriously boost your sex drive" since they are a natural stimulant for both men and women. This fruit is also high in antioxidants that help the blood to flow throughout your body with ease.

Vegetarians argue that people who refuse meat, generally have better health than those who consume meat. Perhaps this is so. But it is worth considering that a proper vegetarian diet means not only giving up meat, but also a healthier way of life - the rejection of drugs, alcohol and smoking.
