Does Lime Juice Cause Impotence in Males?

A study conducted at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria, proved that lime juice can increase cGMP levels in the body, which in turn can help men maintain erections. The researchers gave the impotent rats both lime juice and Viagra, and after only 15 seconds they had sex. The study, published in the Journal of Food Biochemistry, also found that lime juice increased nitric oxide, a hormone that helps the body flow better. The study reported a seventy percent increase in nitric oxide in blood tests after the rats consumed lime juice and Viagra.

cGMP in lime juice

Cyclic guanosine monophosphate, or cGMP, is a neurotransmitter that helps relax the arteries. It is thought that cGMP increases blood flow to the penis. Many ED medications recycle cGMP. However, studies have not demonstrated that cGMP can cause impotence in males. Other factors, such as high blood pressure, may disrupt cGMP levels and cause impotence.

Researchers have identified a number of functional foods and medications for erectile dysfunction. Using lime and lemon juice as a natural treatment has been shown to improve sexual behavior in rats. These foods inhibit PDE-5, arginase, ACE, and MAO enzymes. Lime juice enhanced the therapeutic effects of sildenafil but did not show any synergistic effect. Lime juice may have the potential for the management of ED.

The cGKI protein mediates the effects of cGMP in erectile tissue. cGMP is necessary for the acrosomal reaction that occurs between sperm and the egg. If cGKI is lacking in the erectile tissue, NO/cGMP cannot compensate for the loss of the cGMP/GKI signaling cascade.

Beet juice helps keep pressure in the corpus cavernosum necessary to keep an erection

Beet juice increases nitric oxide, a substance found in the body that acts as a vasodilator, and helps maintain the pressure in the corpus cavernosum, the area of the erectile tissue that is filled with veins. Nitric oxide also helps sustain pressure in the corpus cavernosum, which becomes engorged with blood during an erection. Beet juice has other benefits, including a boost in the liver and detoxifying the body with betalains.

Some people use beet juice to treat erectile dysfunction, or ED, which is a condition in which a man has trouble getting or maintaining an erection. It has been linked to a weakened erectile system, including low libido, and poor dietary habits. However, beet juice does not cure ED in every case. If you experience other symptoms, you should talk to your doctor.

Olive oil reduces impotence

A new study conducted by scientists at the University of Athens claims that nine tablespoons of olive oil a week can improve male sexual performance by 40%. In a study of over 660 men, the researchers discovered that olive oil helps to maintain the health of blood vessels, thereby improving circulation throughout the body. Its many other health benefits have also been discovered. Aside from its sex-enhancing benefits, olive oil has several other benefits.

It is known to help boost testosterone levels in the body, the hormone responsible for libido and sex drive. Besides, olive oil is also known to fight off infections and improve brainpower. Some studies have even shown that olive oil can be a good remedy for dry eyes. However, you must understand that olive oil is not suitable for all people. You can’t use olive oil on your vagina because it will damage the condoms.

Treatments for erectile dysfunction

There are various natural treatments for erectile dysfunction, including lime juice. A study conducted by the Federal University of Technology in Akure found that lime juice combined with Viagra significantly improves erection. Rats were able to have sex after fifteen seconds and had erections in half an hour. The researchers published their findings in the Journal of Food Biochemistry, indicating that lime juice increases nitric oxide levels and therefore, improves blood flow. Researchers also found that nitric oxide levels in the blood increased by 70 percent when the combination of Viagra (Cenforce 100 or  Cenforce 200) and lime juice was used.

Citrus fruits, including pomegranate, also aid erection-supporting effects. They contain fiber, vitamins, and minerals, such as niacin. Garlic contains allicin, a compound that improves blood flow to the sexual organs and thus, enhances erection. The compound can be taken before food or sprinkled on favorite foods. Other food items rich in allicin include tomatoes, shellfish, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, and green tea.
