How pomegranate benefits sexual health
Regular intake of pomegranate will help to increase the flow of blood to the penis, while the anti-oxidants help keep the blood vessels functioning properly. The nutrients help maintain the presence of nitric oxide in the blood, which results in a harder, longer-lasting erection.
Besides providing better erection quality, pomegranate also helps produce healthier sperm and increased sperm concentration and cell density. Thus, regular consumption of pomegranate improves both erection quality and virility.
Scientific studies have shown that up to 600mg of pomegranate juice per kilogram of body weight can be consumed daily without any adverse effects on the body. This indicates that a supplement rich in pomegranate would be a safe and beneficial treatment for erectile dysfunction.
