If your choices to add vitality to your love life were …viagra, watermelon, or the little blue pill… which would you choose?

Of course, Viagra is the first treatment to come to mind. It is better known and it works. But there are pitfalls. It comes with side effects. Stomach discomfort, dyspepsia, nasal congestion, bladder pain, and vision loss to name a few. And it is expensive! First introduced in 1998, it arrived with a hefty price of $10 a pill. Sure, men found it pricey. But it was better than the alternative …impotence. Is it worth the risk though, especially when Viagra is just cosmetic. It does not cure or treat an illness. It is not for anything life threatening or critical. It only temporarily restores a body function for sexual enhancement.

But other alternatives have surfaced since 1998. And healthier ones too!

Take for instance a recent report involving watermelon. Researchers are saying that watermelon contains the ingredient citrulline which triggers production of a compound that relaxes the body’s blood vessels. Which is basically the same effect that Viagra has. And they tout, it tastes good and is side-effect free. But can it really be considered side-effect free when watermelon is a diuretic and will have you running to the bathroom all night long. Afterall, these same researchers claim you would need to eat at least six cups of watermelon in order to get enough citrulline into your body’s system. And while watermelon is a health food, let’s not forget, it is loaded with sugar and six cups in one serving may be a little too much. So far, which would you choose? Viagra or watermelon?

But wait, there is another alternative to consider … the little blue pill.

Popular in the UK, there is a little blue pill made of herbal ingredients which supposedly works just likeViagra. But unlike Viagra, it has zero side effects. Available athave.co.uk, it comes with a cheaper price and you don’t need a prescription. If it is as safe as the company claims, then thischeap Viagrais quite possibly a better alternative thanViagraitself and perhaps even better than watermelon. It would be just like taking Viagra without the dangers associated with it. And it could be swallowed a little faster than six cups of watermelon. Heck, I think it would be cheaper than watermelon too.
