Pomegranate juice a natural aphrodisiac
INDO ASIAN NEWS SERVICE
London, May 7: Men and women who drank a daily glass of pomegranate juice for a fortnight experienced a surge in the hormone testosterone, which increases sexual desire in both genders, Daily Mail reported.
The latest achievement claimed for pomegranates, which are already acclaimed as a superfood, will be welcome among those who would prefer a natural aphrodisiac.
The study, by researchers from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, involved 58 volunteers aged between 21 and 64. By the end of the fortnight both sexes had seen "significantly increased" testosterone levels.
For men this affects traits such as facial hair, a deep voice and greater sexual urges. It is also produced in female adrenal glands and ovaries, raising a woman's sex drive and strengthening bones and muscles.
As a side effect, increased testosterone can help raise mood and memory and even relieve stress such as "pre-match nerves" or stage fright, said the study.
