Studies suggest a daily serving of pomegranate juice could help boost men’s sex lives.

At the University of California, 53men with impotence had 220ml of pomegranate juice for one month.

They swopped to a different juice for four weeks.


Nearly half had improvements in erectile function after drinking the pomegranate, thought to be rich in antioxidants that boost blood supply by raising levels of nitric oxide, a chemical that relaxes blood vessel walls.

Research found that the corpus cavernosum, the tissue inside the penis that expands during an erection, contains tiny blood vessels that dilate when exposed to pomegranate juice.
