Viagra Juice: Pomegranate Juice Boosts Testosterone, Lowers Blood Pressure, and Improves Male Fertility

Pomegranates are in season. I just bought two cases at Costco for a ridiculously low price. (If you have a Costco nearby, you’ll save a lot of money by joining.)

Little did I know that pomegranates raise testosterone while also improving penile blood flow. Like beet juice, pomegranate juice is nature’s Viagra.

Viagra’s little blue pill has become a byword for giving your sex drive a boost.

But scientists have found a daily glass of pomegranate juice could also liven up your libido.

Men and women who drank a glass a day for a fortnight were found to have increased levels of the sex hormone testosterone.

A study on 58 volunteers aged between 21 and 64 found “significantly increased” testosterone levels in both sexes at the end of the two week experiment.

Pomegranate juice increased sex drive in both men and women. It also improve their moods and overall mental health:

It also recorded the levels of 11 emotions in subjects using a scientific scale. The feelings measured included fear, sadness, guilt, shyness and self-assurance.

Positive emotions rose and negative feelings fell.

Wait, there’s more! Pomegranate juice also lowered blood pressure in male subjects:

At the end of the study testosterone levels were found to have increased between 16 and 30 per cent among the subjects, while blood pressure had plummeted.

You have to start drinking pomegranate juice. How?

There are three ways. If you have an Omega Juicer, just throw the seeds into the juicer and boom, you’ll have juice.

As we explained in our Guide to Buying the Best Juicer, a centrifugal juicer doesn’t handle pomegranate seeds as well. You should blend your pomegranate seeds much like we explained in our post about juicing grapes.

You could also buy pre-made pomegranate juice. iHerb sells pomegranate juice in concentrated form. Click here to save $10 on your first iHerb order. (Orders over $40 ship free, too, so buy in bulk.)

Pomegranates are tart and pair well with green leafy vegetables. My personal favorite juicing recipe for pomegranates:

Pomegranate Dino Kale Juice

  • 1-2 pomegrantes’ worth of seeds
  • 12 kale leaves
  • 1 (optional) apple for sweetness

Since pomegranate juice is Viagra for women, too, be sure to make “his and her” serving sizes. ;)

Keep juicing!

    I threw a pomegranate into my Breville centrifugal, sliced into quarters, and I got a good amount of juice from it. The motor was louder than usual, is that anything to worry about?
