Mother Nature provides us with an abundance of fruits, vegetables and herbs, among other resources, necessary for good health and proper function, even for superior performance in all areas of life.
Pomegranate is one such beneficial fruit that modern scientists have identified as rich in nutrients, such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, essential in good health in general and good sexual performance in particular.
Indeed, pomegranate extract is a popular ingredient in male enhancement products. These nutritional supplements are manufactured and marketed for males who want to increase the strength, firmness and duration of their erections, thus, improving on their sexual performance and pleasure.
Pomegranate is a deciduous shrub native to Iran but widely cultivated across many countries from the United States to Japan. The fruit is well-known for its ruby red color as well as its juicy, sweet and tart flavors eaten fresh from the branch and made into various preserved products.
Wide Variety Of Medicinal Uses
Pomegranate has been used for a wide variety of medicinal purposes among many peoples including Greeks and Hebrews. Its traditional uses include the relief of symptoms of diseases like:
- Stomatitis (swelling of the lining of the mouth)
- Gum disease
- Erectile dysfunction
- Tapeworm and other intestinal parasites
The fruit is also used in the prevention of and/or adjunct treatment of:
Of course, pomegranates by themselves are not a miracle cure for these health conditions for obvious reasons. Instead, these flavorful fruits should be consumed as part of a healthy diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fish, seafood, lean meat, and low-fat dairy products.
Male Enhancement Benefits
When it comes to male enhancement, pomegranates and their extracts are popular ingredients because of their abundant nutrients specifically antioxidants.
Keep in mind that antioxidants counter the effects of free radicals on the body and, thus, ward off the signs of aging for as long as possible. Pomegranates may even have higher antioxidant content than green tea and cranberry juice.
The high antioxidant content of pomegranate can aid in the prevention and/or adjunct treatment of the following health conditions:
- Atherosclerosis, the hardening of the arteries
- Hypertension, the presence of high blood pressure
- High cholesterol levels
- Heart failure
- Heart attack
The antioxidants in pomegranates include polyphenols, such as tannins and anthocyanins.
What is the relationship between these heart and blood vessel conditions with male enhancement? It must be emphasized that, in a penile erection, blood flows into the penis’ chambers (i.e., the corpora cavernosa), fills it up, and then stays inside until orgasm is achieved.
Pomegranates aid in stronger erections by contributing to healthier blood vessels.
The antioxidants in the fruit aids in warding off the hardening of the arteries caused by the accumulation of plaque, usually as a result of cholesterol and fat build-up, as well as in lessening the effects of bad cholesterol on the cardiovascular system.
The bottom line: The healthier the blood vessels, the greater the blood flow, the stronger the erection including its firmness and duration.
Said statement is not just hearsay because numerous studies have shown that pomegranates may:
- Improve blood flow to the heart among patients with ischemic coronary heart disease (CHD)
The study was conducted among 45 CHD patients with Dr. Dean Ornish as lead researcher wherein participants who consumed 8 ounces of pomegranate juice daily for 3 months reported less ischemia symptoms during a stress test.
- Aid in stopping plaque build-up in the blood vessels, known as an anti-atherogenic effect
In studies, pomegranate juice was shown to reduce the likelihood of LDL cholesterol forming into plaque.
- Slow down the growth of cancer cells in the prostate
This is because antioxidants are useful in the prevention and repair of damage to the DNA, which increases the risk for cancer. Plus, a healthy prostate means a health sex life.
Truly, pomegranates not only like ruby-red gems but these are also gems in themselves where male enhancement is concerned! Be sure to look for pomegranate extract or its derivatives on male enhancement products so that you can see for yourself.
